I will preface this review by saying that my boyfriend and I truly enjoyed our 3 nights at the Sanderling. Beautiful beaches, great room (South Inn ocean view), and loved loved loved our little patio overlooking the water.
But I have to agree with other reviews regarding staff and service:
We had reserved a room in the Main Inn, and upon arrival we were placed in the South room, which wasn't even ready for us. Front desk seemd like high schoolers not yet trained for job, but it was already August. Killed some time at Lifesaving Station(dinner-ish time)- wasn't the best. Later on we ordered room service and no joke the caesar salad was a hulk of lettuce not yet broken up, one huge crouton, and a chicken breast. So it was "make your own salad" for twenty bucks. The kid who delivered it didn't know how to open our bottle of wine and broke the cork. Just very awkward overall. Had a massage at the spa, I've had much better elsewhere.
So I agree with prior reviewer to just treat this like your own apartment, and get everything you need yourself. Just enjoy the great beaches, large rooms, GREAT food at Blue Point (make reservation well in advance!)
