U.S. News Review

Known for its beachy, romantic feel, the Outer Banks has been drawing travelers to the North Carolina shores for quite some time. Sanderling Resort's expansive oceanfront property encompasses all of those OBX allures with its tranquil setting, recently refreshed decor and ample activities. The resort's location in Duck — between the Atlantic Ocean and the Currituck Sound — means views of the water are available from nearly every room (though recent visitors caution that some "Soundside" rooms immediately overlook a parking lot, detracting from the panorama's beauty). Inside your room, you'll find a minifridge, a marble bathroom, a flat-screen TVs and a private balcony. But with an award-winning spa, an adjacent beach and three pools (one kid-friendly, one adults-only and one indoor), it's unlikely that you'll want to spend much time in your room. What's more, four on-site restaurants offer a variety of cuisine options — from steak and seafood to casual burgers and sandwiches to wintertime s'mores toasted over an outdoor fire pit.
