The Resort's guestrooms with their oversized bathrooms and generous decks, are a perfect complement to the quality of the natural setting, while our acclaimed spa and pools provide both unparalleled serenity at the tranquility pool, or a boisterous family environment at the Resort pool. The Resort's renowned restaurants offer the finest dining on the Outer Banks, with perfectly prepared and presented fresh coastal cuisine and a choice of venues to match the time of day, the season and your mood.

Our room was nice. Second floor of three facing the Sound. Because of the Season there were very few guests in our building. We only saw two other families and the parking lot was empty. It was our first visit to the resort. It would have been nice to have a room on the 3rd

Thank you for being our guest. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope it will not be the last. We do sell by building and view. We can certainly provide pricing for oceanview in the future.

There are a few bars throughout, both inside and outside. If you are traveling w/o children, stay in the South building ... the Tranquility side. No children, no children in its own Tranquility pool either. Also, closest to restaurant/bar. There is a bar in the central Beach House, too. Have fun!

"prefer main building, new top level ,overlooking the sound"
"Ocean Side is not Ocean View, be careful what type room you are booking"
"Request third floor facing ocean."
"Ask for 3rd floor ocean front"
"The top floor on the Atlantic side is the floor where you can see the ocean."
