We re-visited The Winds at Ocean Isle Beach, NC a couple of weeks ago. The last time we had been there was about 10 years ago. Not much has changed - found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. We had a family health crisis that prevented us from arriving on our appointed day but they held our room (of course, we paid for this) and we were able to check-in as soon as we were able to get there. No all resorts will do this - they'll just give your room away if you arrive after 6:00 on your check-in day. This was appreciated. The breakfast buffet is served in the restaurant (when we were there it was only open for breakfast) and the patio bar was open two afternoons while we were there. Our bathroom could have used a little updating but they do provide lots of fluffy soft towels and bath and body works amenities. It was difficult to use the refrigerator because you first had to manuever around a large plastic plant to open the door. When cooking on the stove, we found that the electric coils were crooked and we couldn't fix them. We noted these complaints on the comment form and turned in when we left. I should stress that these were minor issues: looking out our window at the ocean, smelling the ocean, hearing the waves made it all worth while returning here. While we were unable to use the outdoor pool on the ocean (too cold yet), we enjoyed the indoor pool and outdoor hot tubs. If you're looking for a lot of activity, you will be disappointed here - we went to Myrtle Beach and Calabash - fun places to visit for a day. If you want total relaxation, visit this place off-season. We will definitely go back here someday.
