We just returned from a four night stay at the Sanderling Resort. We stayed in a king oceanview room on the second floor. We were pleased with our room -- the size was comfortable and the balcony adequate for two people. As many have stated, this resort sets a high bar for service, amenities, design, layout and cleanliness of the property.
The town of Duck is enchanting and the vision up Rt 12 is one of large well maintained homes surrounded by dense and well manicured foliage. There is a sidewalk with trees shading the path for the runners and bicyclists. The sound is visible so you get a true island experience. The Sanderling enhances the experience by having large windows and balconies with excellent views of the ocean on the east and the sound on the west in the Beachhouse. The property is designed so you feel you are part of a village. We were greeted by staff at locations throughout the property and took advantage of the adult pool, hot tub, beach, fitness center, beach house lobby for reading, fire pit and engaged with other guests. On Wednesday there was a complimentary cocktail hour in the Beach house lobby and the Resort management team mingled with the guests. We dined at Kimball's Kitchen -- food was exceptional and the decor had a sophistication that rivaled fine restaurants in the Boston and Philadelphia area. We took in a magnificant sunset from our table that had a panoramic view of the sound. Other touches that are worth mentioning -- rich bold coffee every morning, iced water with lemons, bowls filled with apples, turn down service, beach chairs and umbrella set up, small microwave and refrigerator in room. It seems to me that the Sanderling has found the winning formula for making guest feel pampered in an non-effusive manner. My husband agreed that this resort is well worth the cost and we will be returning.
