“Less Hotel More Resort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014

We visited the Oceannaire, August 23-27 and stayed in the 1-br ocean front suite. The location and room-orientation were very good. It truly felt like an 'oceanfront' setting, with floor to ceiling windows in both bedroom and living room overlooking the beach. Also, the kitchen was well equipped and in very good condition. The resort has very easy beach access and the staff was friendly and helpful as they could be.

Given the large number of rooms, the services just took time to materialize at times. For example, we asked for help with wi-fi and were directed to the internet service provider. After spending a good half-hour on the phone testing various connectivity issues it was determined that the room just didnt have the service (no wi-fi could really reach the room given the orientation/location of the transmitters). I reported this to the desk on a couple of occasions (who contended that re-booting the router might help) before they finally sent engineering over to re-boot -- to no avail. I asked for a different room, but was refused. Other services, such as room-cleaning also took hours to materialize at times. We spent some time at the hotel pool, which is small but nice and the food there was average at best (we ordered nachos).

The staff at the hotel was polite and helpful, but perhaps are not equipped to act quickly on certain needs of guests. I still think this is a good place to go with family if staying in the virginia beach area, the hotel is clean, feels new and the location is excellent.

So, my friend books a 2 bedroom suite. At least that is the impression. The room turns out to be a 1 bedroom condo (think living room with kitchen, bedroom and large bathroom) with an attached 1 bedroom studio (think kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom) like an old fashioned hotel that you can have 2 rooms next to each other if you need to accommodate a large family.

Now, as a couple, we expected the 1 bedroom to have a king bed. WRONG. A full bed in the 1 bedroom and 2 full beds in the studio room. Sleeping together was a bit of a challenge.

Do not expect room service. Like the title of my review states, this is more of a timeshare. Great for families. Since they advertise as a luxury resort, we were expecting more, much more!!!

The adult pool was ok but would have been much better if there was pool side service. Oh, did I not mention, there really isn't any service here (I own a timeshare that is beyond luxury if this place is classified as one).

I would recommend this for a family that wants to have a nice beach front vacation where you can cook breakfast, lunch & dinner. Yes, you can buy lunch and dinner there, but the menu is small.

2 elevators for the entire place. Everyone complained about having to wait for one every time we wanted to use one! We started using the stairs.

I would go back with my children, maybe.

Room Tip: Ask if they have rooms with a king bed if you want one.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and for staying at the Oceanaire Resort. We hope you enjoyed oceanfront beach vacation with friends and we appreciate your kind comments about our large 1108 square foot 2 bedroom timeshare condos. I also appreciate your comments regarding the lack of bar service directly at our adult pool. We do offer pool deck service just 10 feet away from the pool as required by state/local health code. Thank you again for your comments and we look forward to serving you again.

We just returned from Virginia Beach for a short 5 night getaway. We had booked the stay with the Hilton Garden Inn next door to this property. The HGI did not honor our booking and left us without an adequate place to stay and even suggested we find a different hotel. We walked next door to the Oceanaire and booked the next 3 nights in a suite. From the moment my husband talked to Jackie in reservations to Khalil at the front desk, we knew this property was well managed and so much better than the HGI next door, for only $8 more a night! The room was pristine and spacious, the 10th floor sun deck became my favorite place and the fire pits both on the sun deck and the adult area really made us feel like we were somewhere besides Virginia. I couldn't be more pleased with Oceanaire and this property will be our place to stay at Virginia Beach from now on.

Oceanaire is located in the upper end of Virginia Beach and sits right next to the Ocean Beach Club. Oceanaire is newer and the rooms are modern, well appointed and spotless. The amentities are shared between OBCa nd Oceanaire - the outdoor pools, bars, etc. However, Oceanaire offers an indoor adult infinity pool and it is fabulous. Many rooms offer an ocean front balcony. I have stayed at either OBC or Oceanaire every year for the past 8 years and the entire experience is first class - from check in to check out you are provided with the highest level of service. Prices vary greatly by season but keep an eye out for specials - they are offered frequently. Parking is an additional charge and the garage is around the block with in and out privileges. You will be within walking distance of many restaurants and activities and the north end of the ocean is a great family location. Yes, you will spend a little more to stay here but please believe you get what you pay for and if you want a GREAT vacation, do it right and book Oceanaire !!!

So we came back, again from the beginning to the end, amazing! The staff is so kind and helpful. The parking is only a block a way, so if we wanted to venture out, we just strolled down and grabbed the car. There is nothing negative about this resort! It is actually so awesome, we purchased a timeshare! We are happy to say.." We will see you again soon!"

We spent a week at the Oceanaire in April and it was fabulous! We had a 2 Bdrm unit above the fire pit Lounge with two balconies. The unit was beautiful. The staff was terrific, the location & view gorgeous. We saw dolphins everyday from our balcony.
A definate on the list to visit again.
I would highly recommend the Oceanaire.

My family and I stayed at the Oceanaire for a week and had a great stay. The facility is extremely nice and very well maintained. The staff was attentive and helpful. Our room was well appointed with gorgeous views of the beach and ocean. We are active people so really enjoyed the beach volleyball courts in front, the nearby tennis and the fitness center at the resort. There are some very good restaurants within walking distance so we barely had to leave the area. It was our first time to Virginia Beach but the Oceanaire definitely made us want to come back. The very European style indoor pool was an elegant touch as well. As we drove to the airport, I asked my daughters how they liked the vacation and they gushed "awesome!". That sums it up.
