The staff meets you when you arrive at the door and are very friendly. They even call you to see if there are any problems or concerns. The room was clean and had a fantastic view of the water. There was a kitchenette which I used to cook breakfast on some mornings or dinner sometimes. Breakfast is not included but...

Just returned from a 4-night, 5-day respite from a fantastic relaxation respite at the Ocean Sands Resort in Virginia Beach. Starting the day watching the sun rise out of the water while still relaxing in your bed listening to the waves pound the shore was a restful way to begin a great day. The pillow-top bed felt like angel-soft clouds....

Why do people buy timeshares? You have to clean up after yourself; no maid service. The "suite" is tiny. 3 adults can barely fit into it. The suite is so small, that there are no doors on the closets. The timeshare owners have to pay $300 a week on top of their timeshare investment to stay here. And in November,...
