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 exudes 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 minifridges, marble bathrooms, flat-screen TVs and private balconies. 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 the room. What's more, four on-site restaurants offer a variety of options to soothe your cravings — including wintertime s'mores toasted over an outdoor fire pit.
