“We love The Winds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

We've stayed there twice and had our daughter's destination wedding there last weekend. We like the facility, the staff, the amenities and the event planner Mel! They have more options of accomodations than any place we've ever been, from ocean-side ocean-view one to three bedroom rooms to island-side 6 BR cottages. The buffet breakfast included in the price of your room has something for everyone and the light fare from the Tiki Bar is very tasty. We feel like we are in the Caribbean with all the lush plantings. For the wedding, we worked with Mel for 9 months and had all vendors be hired by her so we could pay just one fee for all. She was willing to have vendors not in the area work with her as well as those who were in the area and recommended by her. She's wonderful! All the staff was helpful and friendly and many of our guests said they would come back to The Winds for a vacation. This is no luxury resort but instead a homey, old-style, family type beach resort that suits us to a T.

Room Tip: Ocean-side have great ocean views on 2nd and 3rd floors. First floor does not have ocean view but y...

This year we visited The Winds for the second time. They have updated the place with wood floors, fresh paint and new furniture in bright beachy fabrics. It is so nice. This is a perfect place to stay. The staff members are all friendly and welcoming. The place is very clean, and I love the tropical feel of the grounds with all the trees, shrubs, and flowers. We spent a relaxing week there and can't wait to go back. It is close to some great golf courses and the wonderful Calabash area for seafood. Our favorite room is 307 at the top. Great ocean views!

Room Tip: Room 307 is the only room on the top floor with a large deck and rocking chairs.

We had our daughters wedding the weekend of May 3,4 and 5. We arranged everything through Mel at the Winds from the caterer, photographer, music etc. Everything went smooth as silk. All of the feedback from the 70+ guests who stayed at the venue, attended the ceremony and reception were all positive. Mel, RB and the staff were attentive to our needs and all facets of the weekend were top of the line. This was our first stay and we are already considering it for the next family reunion.
Thanks Mel for a weekend our daughter, family and friends will always remember as what every little girl dreams of her wedding day should be. Thanks Again
Jeff and Mary Kathryn S.

Stayed there this past weekend, nice place - clean and safe.
Free breakfast buffet is pretty good just the basics and plenty of it.
Nice clean room, except our bathroom was tiny could barely fit in it but very clean, great place to get away.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a normal size bathroom ours was clean but tiny!

Thank you so very much for taking the time to share your experiences with us and with other travelers. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our free hot Southern breakfast buffet and that you found our rooms both clean and safe. Ocean Isle Beach is a wonderful place to get away since it is so unlike many of the over-commercialized beaches on the East Coast. We hope to have you back to stay with us again soon

Loved the comfortable, friendly, and relaxing environment. The staff was great. They went out of their way to talk and be accommodating to our needs. The rooms were clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The gardens beautiful and well maintained, it was nice to sit and smell the aromas.

Going in the Spring, the beaches were not crowded and the location of the winds made it easy to get to the beach or the town.

We will definitely make return plans.

Room Tip: It helped to call (we spoke to Gary) to discuss specific needs. They were helpful in finding what we...

This was our fourth trip to The Winds Resort in the last seven years. Each time has been a delight. Our stay this year was from 3/10-3/15/13. A little chilly compared to other years, but only with the weather, as the the staff was warm & friendly as always. This place is special because it blends wonderful scenery with gentle manners that is both relaxing & refreshing. Great breakfast. We look forward to our next stay. You will too. Joe & Linda F.

Room Tip: Try the Gardenia Suite. The views are second to none.

We loved our winter stay at the Winds. They always treat us like family. We have been to lots of hotels and resorts, but we keep coming back to the Winds. The rooms are bright and cheery and always spotless. Shirley from housekeeping always checks to make sure we are comfy. Chuck, our personal breakfast chef, is the greatest. See you all next year!

Room Tip: Ocean side- you can sit on your porch and watch the ocean-third or fourth floor
