what an incredible retreat to the winds this weekend! i was vacationing in the mountains in nc and thought, screw it, i need some saltwater and salty air! and what better than a spontaneous trip - the resort was actually sold out but a very kind audrey kept my number and called me to let me know we could come out! this place exceeded my expectations, its luxurious and beautiful. i work in the hotel industry so i am used to resorts looking better in their marketing and websites than in real life, BUT THIS PLACE IS EVEN BETTER in real life. everyone was so nice and treated us with respect and hospitality. the desk person from long island was so awesome too, she really went out of her way to make our stay beyond great. so many extra surprises....i could go on. and the tiki bar staff was really cool too! i have to add - even though it has a family vibe, its not run down with kids going crazy or the stuff you may find in big box myrtle beach resorts.the room was SO clean - and it was a pet friendly room too. everything was new and beautiful, i felt like i was in a perfect wing off of the golden girl's house! this place has a caribbean resort feel, and rightfully so (i spend most summers in DR or Puerto Rico) and its connected to the island by the sea! thank you so much The Winds Resort, I miss it so much already, infact i'm rethinking this life in new york city! lol ready for a change! maybe ocean isle is in my future... until then thank you with warm regards! john and mario
