My room was perfect for me. Comfortable bed and great location on the top floor on the oceanfront. The Tiki bar was just right with delicious drinks and good food. Kim and Lorna were very friendly. The breakfast was delicious. I enjoyed sitting out on the balcony except for the smoker staying in the next room. I would have to... More

We stayed at the Winds Resort from Aug 26-28, 2014. We loved it so much. We wanted a nice, relaxing, clean resort on a great beach and this is what we got! We stayed in a Magnolia cottage. It was a spectacular little cottage! My parents had a king bed in their bedroom and my husband, baby, and I had... More

I had visited the resort previously alongside my cousin as she planned her wedding at The Winds. I was expecting a typical resort, large and lavish, but this was quaint and inviting. As we returned for the wedding, me, my husband, our daughter, and around 15 other of our family members, we were entranced by the inviting and welcoming paradise... More

The Winds is a nice place, but I feel the price is too high and the amenities too few to be considered a resort. Pros: Clean, but housekeepers clean the laminate floors by sweeping the sand etc into the corners (I witnessed this) Tiki Bar employees were friendly and helpful. Front desk was usually helpful, but some were more enthusiastic... More

Dear Paledry, Thank you for staying with us this August and thank you for taking the time to offer your feedback. We agree, The Winds is, just as you wrote, “a relaxed and very social environment for a vacation.” I am sorry that you found the bedding not to your satisfaction and the compact kitchen not useful enough. We do... More

Our week at the Winds Resort Beach Club turned out to be the ideal vacation for our group of 14. The accommodations at the 5 bedroom/5 bath cottage were comfortable, spacious and clean. The beach was beautiful and surprisingly uncrowded, and the 2 pools and many activities offered kept everyone happy. A real plus was the buffet breakfast that is... More

The lack of options on Ocean Isle Beach are what keep this place in business. We stayed here for a family gathering and it seemed to be the best of the limited options on the island. The hotel is made up of a series of beach houses acquired over time, which maybe I should have picked up ahead of time,... More

We just got home from 4 days and 3 nights at the Winds Beach Resort! We had a beautifully decorated, clean oceanfront room. We loved the pool and beautiful beach.
