The room was a box on the beach. Convenient, but you don't want to spend too much time on the room.
I have stayed at a few places along the Amagansett, Montauk coastline so I figured I would try Wavecrest. Luckily I relied on TripAdvisor so I knew what I might be walking into. Low expectations were met. The beach towels were terrible. As someone described the towels, they scratched your skin.
Most of the staff was nice and very helpful. However, the guys working the towels and chairs at the beach were awful. They drive the 4x4 all over the beach, all day long ruining a quiet day on the beach. The other resorts carry/drag he chairs and are much more relaxing.
It seems everyone who works at the resort has a 4x4 and drives it everywhere. Maybe if they delivered the sheets, towels and cleaning supplies all at once they would be able to walk around.
The room was clean but very damp. The room has a de-humidifier that is very loud. But there was some black mold on the doorjam in the bathroom. The maintenance guy repaired it when he heard about it, but what was the housekeeper doing? . Also, the garbage can under the sink was full AFTER we checked in.
The closet was in the bathroom, which made it tough to get dressed and means the clothes in the closet get damp from the shower.
The guests seem to be a party crowd and swear so much I felt like I was back in the Army. You could hear them over the balcony, on the beach. My friend even moved away from people on the beach because she was so offended.
Basically, the location is great but if you can afford something else I would recommend you go there.
