“We Loved It”
Reviewed August 20, 2007

On impulse, my wife and I booked the Wavecrest, sight unseen, for a mid-week getaway. We were very satisfied. The place is clean, quiet, and friendly. The beach is spectacular from the oceanfront terraces. Beds were comfortable, A/C quiet and good.
There are probably fancier hotels in the area, but our room at Wavecrest was closer to the beach than any others we saw along the shore.
Cell phone service is sporadic (which we considered a plus), and it really pays to shop for some basics before you settle in. If you're looking for a family vacation, you may want to consider less expensive, longer term rates. But for that brief romantic escape, it was ideal for us.

We stayed in the Water's Edge Studio. The room was clean and comfortable. The room directly faces the beach. The view was spectacular. The beach is beautiful. We stayed on the second floor, which I would recommend in this building. It appeared that the view might be partially blocked by the dunes , beach grass and decks on the first floor. We had a nice covered balcony with privacy partitions, separating us from the adjoining room's balconies. The balcony had two comfortable loung chairs, two regular chairs and a small table. There is a television, sink, small stove top, toaster, coffee maker, and microwave. Lounge chairs and beach umbrellas are free and are brought down to the beach for you. Some tips: bring breakfast food. You can enjoy a leisurely breakfast on your balcony enjoying the amazing views and save the $35 cost of breakfast (for 2) in town. I also recommend buying lunch food, so that you can pack a cooler and not have to leave the beach. There is an IGA in town. Also bring books, and a camera. There is beach as far as you can see in either direction. Don't bring dressy clothes. My wife wore a summer dress one night for dinner and felt over-dressed. There are a large number of restaurants; all casual as far as we could see. I'm sure there are high-end eateries, but that's not what we came for. It's not close enough to town to walk, but that just added to the peacefulness of the place. We are planning to go back again next summer. It was extemely relaxing and de-stressing, which is just what we needed.

  • Liked — The amazing views and the cleanliness of the room.
  • Disliked — Can't think of anything.

The rooms are clean and nicely updated with fairly new appliances. We stayed in the panorma view room the view was nice, but, we would recomend staying in the rooms on the beach. The staff was very polite and courteous.

We stayed at the Wavecrest the first five days in June of 2007. Since there were six of us we chose the cottage. First, the staff was very pleasant and helpful. Secondly, the accommodations were wonderful. Clean and comfortable. The beach was great with someone ready to bring down lounge chairs and umbrellas if requested which we did. We are planning to make this a yearly trip. I highly recommend the Wavecrest.

we spent a week at the wavecrest in september, our second year there. We had a nice room in the panorama building. We were happy with the staff, they were not rude to us. We had a nice clean room everyday with special touches form the cleaning staff. Treat people nicely, they treat you nicely in return. only problem was parking was sometimes tricky. We had a view of the ocean and also of hither hills. i have already booked our week for this sept.

We stayed at the Wavecrest for a couple days after Labor Day. Our room was spotless. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the bathroom was very clean. The staff was courteous,and the other guests were all pleasant. We had a great view from the balcony, and the beach is very clean,too. We will definitely come back next year, and invite family to join us.

I've read the reviews for the Wavecrest and can't for the life of me figure out why some folks didn't love this place! My boyfriend and I stayed at the Wavecrest for almost a week, and it couldn't have been better. The folks in the office were pleasant and friendly, the room was immaculate, up to date, and very well cared for. We had a fantastic view of the ocean from our second floor private deck. Very comfortable queen sized bed, complete with extra pillows and blankets. The kitchenette was well stocked with utensils and other basics. The microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator, stove, everything was spotless and in excellent working order. We stayed somewhere else last year, and it was nice, but the Wavecrest blew that place out of the water for us this year. We will DEFINATELY be back for another vacation in the future. The indoor pool was beautiful and clean, and the staff was very friendly. We were only a stones throw from the water, which was great, too, and it was a nice bonus to have a nice gentleman who's job it was to bring lounge chairs and umbrellas to people on the beach. This place is well worth the money. Even the maid staff was nice! What a wonderful escape that for us is only about 3 hours away. I can't wait to go back!

  • Liked — Cleanliness, close to the ocean, close to town, beautiful surroundings
  • Disliked — Loved everything about it.
  • Tips/Secrets — Go, enjoy. You won't be sorry.
