Want a great spot that is out of the way but very special. Stop here. Great rooms with amenities and a great restaurant with great service. Want no more - this's your place. The special desserts were beyond and highly chocolate oriented.

I recently stayed at this resort for my anniversary. I had never visited the Outer Banks and the resort was exactly what I had hoped for. The property had beach charm of days long gone but with modern touch. The buildings and grounds were very well maintained. Since it was off season it was as if we had the entire... More

First off, this is a gorgeous resort and we had a wonderful experience staying there. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, every staff member we encountered was phenomenal. The difference between a good resort and a great resort is in the details, and the Sanderling doesn't disappoint. From the orange blankets on the beds (the Sanderling's... More

We found the Sanderling to be an excellent destination. We enjoyed the quietness of the South side rooms and loved keeping our balcony door open and listening to the waves. The only downside at all was the mattress was a little soft for my taste. We loved the firepit everynight and the general area was very nice as well.

We spent the better part of a week at the Sanderling in August. I can't say enough great things about the place. The room we had looked out to the beach and was spacious and extremely comfortable.

What a great venue for a wedding. Everything was super. Nice party place. Service and food was awesome. Everything was right there, so no trouble having fun. Perfect views. Can't ask for more. A little over budget.
