I was very disappointed with my stay. I purchased a time share exchange for $800 for a week and stayed on labor day weekend. First of all, google maps makes it seem like this is really close to the beach. That is misleading. There was a festival and the entire beach area was closed off. I had to drive to... More

Thank you for your feedback and I apologize that the city’s block of one of the boardwalk’s access points affected your vacation with us. The city of Virginia Beach has done a great job trying to avoid unnecessary restrictions during the replenishment project, which is vital to our coastline in terms of tide and erosion protection. However, in order to... More

We just returned from a vacation to Virginia Beach, VA. We stayed at the Ocean Key Resort. It is not directly on the beach but the way it sits you have the feel of beach front property. You crossed the street and you are on the boardwalk! Our room had a balcony that had ocean front view. Ashley checked us... More
