A great beach, both restaurants are outstanding, accommodations and services are well above what you might expect at this eclectic resort. Lots of activities to enjoy, available right there and ample, helpful service staff happy to help. The spa is enjoyable with many areas in which to relax. Expansive areas throughout the resort for couples and for families with children... More

Staying here is like visiting your families beach house that's been in the family for generations. Casually elegant, with excellent service and helpful staff. The price of a ocean view room is expensive, but worth it for special occasions.

We visited the Sanderling recently as a couple, in our 50s. We had stayed at the Sanderling for many years - but haven't been there in several years. We visited again this August, and were impressed with recent changes, which further improved on one of our very favorite places in the Outer Banks.We loved the two ocean-side pools, and especially...

Its a long drive to the Sanderling resort for the average Brit but when you get there well worth it. Beautiful beach, well appointed rooms, two pools its a lovely wee place. However its not without some annoying traits. The chairs the hotels provide on the beach are not the most comfortable and the Life Saving Station restaurant where you... More

I can't say enough about the service at this resort. The most friendly staff I have ever come across. The resort itself is beautiful inside and out. The beds are so comfortable and the room necessities great. Oh and did I mention the food?!? There are 3 places to eat on the resort and all service fresh locally inspired fare.... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the end of our US vacation and loved this place. It is expensive but high quality with a focus on service. There is a private stretch of beach which was great for us to hang out on with our two teens. Only negative is the family pool which is full of screaming kids. There... More

A fabulous beach resort with fabulous gluten free menu options! Restaurant staff members are very knowledgeable in regards to food allergies. Both breakfast and dinner offered gluten free bread or rolls that were fantastic! Looking forward to a return visit!

Sanderling resort is a nice, old-fashioned summer resort, but it is way overpriced. For about $500 a night we were looking forward to four days of luxury and relaxation. We got a small room with a tiny balcony and with less amenities than in any 150-dollar hotel room in the country.Not even a coffee maker, a tiny table, sluggish internet,... More

Thank you for being our guest and we are sorry we did not meet all your expectations. We will share all of these points with our team to continue to improve.

My girlfriend and I really loved this place. We didn't want to leave when our week stay was over. The rooms were very clean for a beach resort hotel, and the service here is top-notch. And the beach is, of course, amazing! The staff also goes out of their way to accommodate any need you may have. We are vegetarians,... More
