If you are looking for something unique in the area, a very high quality place, on the sound side, with lots of amenities, then you won't find anything better. We stayed two nights in 'Sea Oats' room, which was one of their best rooms.
Pros: A delicious breakfast is included. You can take sodas from the refrigerator in the common room, use movies in their theater or your room, take snacks from the basket in your room--all included. The view from the rooms of Pamlico sound is spectacular. They have a great restaurant on site that has live music each evening. The crab cakes were some of the best we have ever had. The jetted tub (roomy for one person) was a nice touch, also with dual shower heads. Staff were very nice and helpful. The room had a private deck to sit and look at the sunset and listen to the live music. There are cans of 'Off' for the bugs which come out in the evening.
Cons: The curtains failed to keep the light out of our room in the morning. The live music was pretty loud in the room (stopped at 8 or 9pm). The room was a bit warm without a separate thermostat (although the ceiling fan on high speed made this a non-issue). The internet signal in our room (right above the office where the main router was located) was quite weak--no connection on my android phone and almost none on our iPad. The 'private' deck was overlooking the house next door, about 100 feet away.
