I personally really enjoyed our visit to the Sanderling, but my husband was as pleased which is why I'm rating a four instead of a five. While I loved the ocean views and the room, my husband was disappointed with quality of service at the front desk which he didn't feel was quite up to the standard he was expecting from this 'resort and spa' for the price he was paying. They just didn't seem very welcoming to him. He was also disappointed with the appearance of the hotel and the room, thinking it all looked a bit 'old' and drab. This was last summer, though, so who knows how they look this season?
We also tried the spa, getting a couples massage. I loved it, never had a better massage. My husband, however, was in pain for the rest of the trip after his and refuses to ever get another massage. So we both had very different experiences, I suppose!
All in all, I actually wouldn't mind returning. Duck is a lovely little town and the beaches are beautiful.
