My family of ten which includes me, my husband, our two daughters and sons-in-law, and our four grandchildren have been vacationing at the Jersy shore the last week of August every year. This is the first year we chose the outerbanks.. We chose The Sanderling as it was the only resort we could find on line and know absolutely nothing...

My wife, son and I, together with a couple of friends, had eight wonderful days at one of the Sanderling's holiday homes. The homes are a deal more expensive than suites in the hotel but they offer far more room, greater privacy and full access to all resort amenities. Under new ownership some changes have been made - for the...

Glad to hear that you enjoyed the renovations and enjoyed the privacy of the home. We appreciate your Kimball Kitchen comments and have addressed them further on that specific review. Sorry to hear that your experience was not favorable at the Sandbar and will need to inquire on that a bit more. We look forward to your return!!!!

This was our second stay after a less than stellar experience several years ago, so we decided to give it another try. As much as I want to love this place, it still does not impress as much as I had hoped, following the renovation and management change. Pros: Great and helpful front desk staff, beautiful adult pool that's great...

We spend a well deserved 5 day vacation at the Sanderling. We were not happy with the location of our room when we checked in, but Jeffery (staff member) stepped up and offered 2 rooms that were more than perfect. He made our midweek move as seamless and effortless possible. Once settled in our new room we headed next door...

My family stayed here for 4 nights and we had the best time. The staff is amazing. The accommodations are comfortable and beachy. The focus on families is really nice but not overkill. We enjoyed food at all of the restaurants with Kimball's Kitchen being the standout, but the Lifesaving Station was really fantastic and the menu was more interesting...
