The resort was nice but I expected more to be honest. The breakfast buffet was terrible but other than that it's a decent place. I stayed in a regular room and it came With two full size beds. The AC worked But the rooms seem to feel sticky as if a swamp cooler had been running in them. The staff... More

We have been to a number of different beaches in NC, but we always come back to Ocean Isle and the Winds. If you are looking for a fancy, upscale resort, this may not be the place for you.

My wife and I stayed 4 nights at The Winds Resort this past weekend. As long as you're not expecting a new and shiny, corporate affiliated hotel resort, you'll love it as we did. I recommend the ocean front suites. Stay away from the ground level ocean fronts because the view is blocked due to the beautiful greenery and palm... More

We vacationed as a family of four in August 2016 at the Winds (5 days). Overall it was a spectacular stay and we 100% intend to return. The key ingredient to our wonderful time at the Winds was knowing what we wanted in this vacation. The Winds offers a place to relax and unwind. It's set on a beautiful beach... More

First, we've been coming to Ocean Isle Beach for years, but never stayed here as we normally rent a house for longer stays. This was for a short stay, so I made a reservation at the Winds for 2 nights - well at least I thought I did! We arrived to learn that we did not have a reservation and... More

The Winds is a clean and well managed resort just on the lovely Ocean Isle Beach in NC. We loved the attention to detail - e.g. dehumidifiers in every room made sure that the rooms dont have the moldy and damp feel that many beach-side rooms typically have. The resort have enough to keep the whole family occupied, when you... More
