From the moment we set foot on the grounds we were greeted by Jeffrey and Nancy who were so pleasant and welcoming. The grounds and accommodations are exquisite. The staff are all friendly and professional. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND this resort.

Six of us just returned from a long weekend at the Sanderling Resort (Oct 21). We stayed in the south building, second floor, facing the dune - king oceanside rooms. We loved everything about our stay: our rooms (marvelously comfortable bed and linens, large luxurious bathroom with fluffy towels and robes, the veranda with comfy seats), the heated outdoor and...

Meticulously clean rooms, friendly and professional staff makes for a great stay on the outer banks. Set across several buildings amongst the dunes the resort is a refuge from the strip malls that seem to be everywhere South of Duck. The rooms are expensive but are very nice and a serious alternative to the weekly rental crap game. Management is...

We planned a quick, last minute trip to the Sanderling Resort after receiving recommendations from several friends. The resort and the town the resort is located in are beautiful. Our room was spacious and clean, and the service was impeccable.

We decided to explore a little bit of North Carolina during the shoulder season. It had to be no more than six hours and had to have water. We definitely landed right side up. Service was wonderful, the beach beautiful and the room spacious. Our room overlooked the parking lot but with a beautiful view of the Sound . Will...

Thank you for trying a new location and selecting Sanderling Resort. Shoulder season is a great time to visit and the sunsets in Fall with the crispier air are just amazing. We hope there will be a return trip to continue to explore the area in the future.

We stayed here for our anniversary last weekend. It was our second visit. They seem to have upgraded the property. We had an ocean view suite, which was very comfortable. We made the error of leaving an unscreened window open for some fresh air while we went out for dinner. There were a few lights on. We returned to many...

The property is beautiful and has the perfect coastal feel. I have never experienced staff as lovely and as devoted to making my stay incredible. Smores by the fire pits at night and yoga on the sand dunes in the morning was icing on the cake. Thank you Sanderling Resort!

How we long for the Sanderling of yore when the floors sparkled, rooms had wine glasses, & there was no mold on bathroom tiles. Sanderling is a lovely place, but it is no longer the stellar place it once was. Iris now just another corporate venue-charge as much as possible, deliver minimally & advertise substantially. This is a pleasant resort,...

Absolutely loved this resort! Spent 4 nights here between Christmas and New Year's in 2013 on a spa getaway. The spa is fabulous! Hot stone massage and Vichy shower is very relaxing and rejuvenating. The property was renovated in 2013 and is beautiful. The rooms are really nice and the staff is very friendly and helpful, almost feels like home....
