The Resort's guestrooms with their oversized bathrooms and generous decks, are a perfect complement to the quality of the natural setting, while our acclaimed spa and pools provide both unparalleled serenity at the tranquility pool, or a boisterous family environment at the Resort pool. The Resort's renowned restaurants offer the finest dining on the Outer Banks, with perfectly prepared and presented fresh coastal cuisine and a choice of venues to match the time of day, the season and your mood.

We returned to the Sanderling Resort to celebrate another anniversary. This one was even better than last year. The room was more modern and had a safe for storing valuables. It was clean and well kept.

There are a few bars throughout, both inside and outside. If you are traveling w/o children, stay in the South building ... the Tranquility side. No children, no children in its own Tranquility pool either. Also, closest to restaurant/bar. There is a bar in the central Beach House, too. Have fun!
