“September stay”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

We had an overnight stay at the wavecrest we had a room in the overlook, which i was verry happy to say we liked it better than the beach dune bldg. it is further away from the beach. The room clean with a nice layout. We are planning on next year doing a midweek stay.

My wife and I spent 3 days 9/4 - 9/6 at Wavecrest. We stayed in a panorama room which is high up and away from the beach. The room was clean and well furnished. It had a stove, full sized refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and a toaster. Make sure you bring your own shampoo and toiletries as none are supplied. The balcony was large with lounge chairs and a nice view of the ocean. Just know it is a long walk to the beach from these rooms. If you are going to the beach don't forget anything. At the beach they supply lounge chairs and umbrellas. I brought my own beach towels so I can't confirm that their towels are bad. All in all we had a nice stay and I would consider retuning to Wavecrest.

My wife and I recently spent 5 days at the Wavecrest resort. Last year was our first time out there so this was a repeat experience. We rented the same corner room in the Overlook building with the king size bed and this year there was a new deck which was a nice enhancement. We had another very nice experience this year and the staff was very friendly and informative about places to eat and things to do. The thing we loved most was the view of the ocean from the deck. The week we stayed there it was cool so we kept the sliding door open at night. The sound of the waves was like a relaxation tape and I haven't slept so well in a long time. We walked to Hither Hills State park again where there are life guards and a nice general store with a small breakfast and lunch restaurant for a quick meal. We also walked to Gurney's Inn again and enjoyed live music and cocktails outside on their deck. We plan on making this an annual experience now and recommend the resort. We heard they will do more work to improve the pool facilities next year so each year should get better.

Room Tip: Remember to ask at the front desk for the kind of room you want and the location. Each room is priv...

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.

We stayed in a studio oceanfront room in July. Fully renovated with a big king bed, kitchenette and sofa. The room was spacious, the deck was front row seat to the ocean! Couldn't beat this. We've gone to Wavecrest on and off for 16 years. They have improved the rooms, kept them clean and cared for, and the property can't be beat with regard to being on the ocean. We will return again!

Room 105 was fully renovated suite with direct ocean front deck and king size bed with sleep sofa in living room. The staff made check in and out a breeze. I decided to go back in late August for rest and relaxation at it's own beach...replete with complementary lounges and umbrellas.

Room had great view of lovely beach, but room smelled awful. Pillows smelled of body odor. Bring your own beach towels, as the ones they have are good for an infant! We were up all night as our room was near a walkway, so we heard footsteps til 2 am and then again at 6 am. Good to get back home! Only stay in top level rooms.......and take your allergy meds as air in rooms will have you sneezing all night.
