I've been staying at the Windswept for over a decade. I usually stay the weekend after Labor Day. Kids are back at school and the weather is still beautiful. I am loyal to a fault but I've always enjoyed my stay. The location is great for me. Right on the beach, private beach entrance for guests, complimentary coffee, tea, and beach passes, and walkable to the Tiki Bar, cheap eats, and Kids' rides (for those with little ones). The rubber mat on the ramp leading to the sand was a big hit for me this year! I also think the rates are fair. This is not a luxury hotel. However, it's clean with an ideal location.
I've read some other reviews and can understand some of the complaints. Some guests do tend to "take over" the pool and lounge area. Especially guests that have rooms in those areas. Some guests are loud into and through the night as well. However, I don't think this is a reflection of the Windswept staff. What are they supposed to do other than ask folks to be considerate? Personally, I've never been disturbed by other guests. As far as folks trying to "take over" certain areas....I enjoy what I want when I want as a paying guest. The only thing I have noticed is that the bedding (mattress, pillows, etc.) has been less than what I expect. Perhaps it's time for new mattresses. Overall, the staff, from the front desk, to housekeeping, couldn't be friendlier or more pleasant. I will continue to return, God Willing, unless I opt for a change after all of these years.
