Spent one night at the Sanderling for a sister's spa getaway. The resort is beautifully decorated in upscale, beach decor. The check-in was prompt and friendly. We stayed in the family side of the resort because of the room configuration we requested. The room was spacious, comfortable and we loved the special touches like beach towels and s'mores kits for...

Good clean resort. S'mores offered upon arrival, which kids really enjoyed around the fire pit. Nightly turndown service with taffy...which was exciting. Only changes: the outdoor pool was closed, so we were told...but it was uncovered and really dirty. So lots of kids swam in it...so not a clean experience. Would be nice if it were cleaned earlier, since it's...

Sanderling is quite a lovely place. The interior decor is very homey, the rooms are comfortable and the beach is just a few steps away from your room. Their outdoor pools looked nice but it was too chilly to swim, although their indoor pool needed some TLC (water was dirty as was in desperate need of some filtration). In the...

We went down for their wedding tasting and vendor fair, which was very nice. The rooms we had were spacious and comfortable, and the resort is very relaxing and pleasant. One of the restaurants was still being renovated, but we had other breakfast options. They also have coffee and tea available in the Main building. The front desk was very...

Our family of four loved Sanderling and the surrounding area of Duck, NC. The front desk was courteous, friendly and helpful in answering all of our questions regarding things to do and places to eat. The room was great, complimentary water daily and, the kids favorite, a four-person s'mores kit for the outdoor fire pits. The main building had complimentary...

The location was excellent, quiet and in the small but nice town of duck. It was a close drive to other areas. The weather was nice. We had to change rooms based on the first room in the south bldg having an infestation of spiders. The nice part was the hotel staff was friendly and kindly transfered our room. I...

We drove down to the Sanderling Resort as we have for over 25 years, but this time we did not have a reservation. The weather was forecast as fantastic for March, so we drove to our favorite getaway.

The Sanderling is every bit worth the hype. It's not at all pretentious and the staff was very genuine in greeting you and asking what you needed. The lobby and other sitting areas were so comfortable and with the view of the ocean (or sound depending on which side of the building you were on) made it ideal. I could...
