I had visited the resort previously alongside my cousin as she planned her wedding at The Winds. I was expecting a typical resort, large and lavish, but this was quaint and inviting. As we returned for the wedding, me, my husband, our daughter, and around 15 other of our family members, we were entranced by the inviting and welcoming paradise atmosphere. Lush tropical foliage lines the walkways, helpful and courteous staff, and friendly guests in every direction. We spent quite a bit of time lounging poolside at the tiki bar while the kids enjoyed the pool. The bartenders were fantastic and made you feel like they'd known you for years. The other guests visiting the bar would mingle with us making us regret that we weren't spending more time with them, as everyone was so friendly in just a relaxed environment. The location could not be more convenient as we took advantage of visiting and touring the local area - sunset beach, calabash, southport, and bald head island. The view coming over the causeway to OIB is like no other - you'll be in love! The continental breakfast served is amazing. We thought muffins, cereal, blah but we were welcomed to gravy and biscuits, the crispest bacon, eggs, the works! We also had our 7-year old a little birthday cake and pizza party in the outdoor dining area where we were told later that the resort raccoon enjoyed the cake, as well. There are also resort cats that will bid you a visit while enjoying the property. Our entire family enjoyed everything about this little slice of paradise and will attempt to make it an annual trip, which has even the worst travelers and the beach haters in our clan counting down the days.
