This is the second year we came to the OBX on Thursday evening to beat the Saturday madness. If you can spare the money, the Sanderling is a good choice: it's north of Duck, which means Saturday we're heading against the traffic to get to Kitty Hawk; there are 3 restaurants on the property; and the spa offers great massages (a good way to kick off a summer vacation).
The only downside: we paid extra to get an ocean-side room; however, we were put in the north wing, next to the pool that is meant for kids. We don't have children, and while it's good to hear the occasional squeal of delight from small children as they play in the water, it wears thin after a while. Unless you have kids, you may want to request a room in the south wing (which we'll do next year).
