The boardwalk along Virginia Beach, Virginia, is ranked by the Guinness Book of World Records as the “longest pleasure beach in the world.” Meaning, if you love invigorating fresh salt air, abundant seafood restaurants, interesting shops, and charming cafés – while also enjoying the many options of adventurous activities like kite-sailing, zip-lining and jet skiing – then you will find three perfect miles for all of the above where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. Three resorts stand out for their value and top-notch amenities: Boardwalk Resort and Villas; Ocean Beach Club and Turtle Cay Resort. Diamond Resorts Reviews team has taken a closer look at each.
Boardwalk Resort and Villas features all the amenities a visitor expects from a beachfront retreat. Adjacent to 17th Street Park on the Virginia Beach Boardwalk, this oceanfront hotel is a two-minute walk from Atlantic Fun Park and less than two miles from the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center. It’s a quick stroll to the 17th Street Stage and park for some of the city’s best live music, or choose to soak up the sun on the beach. Or, even just stay where you are and enjoy the heated indoor oceanfront pool and hot tub. The one, two and three bedroom suites include a full kitchen and private balcony with ocean view. Diamond Resorts Reviews recommends allocating time for a memorable dinner at the on-site RockfFish Boardwalk Bar & Seagrill which not only serves fresh seafood, pasta and steaks, but features an impressive collection of Beatles memorabilia.
Ocean Beach Club is a Caribbean-inspired resort offering upscale accommodations consisting of studios, one, two and three bedroom suites with private balconies and oversized sleeper sofas. Among its recreational amenities are the four oceanfront swimming pools, including two outdoor pools, an adults-only infinity pool with bar service, and an indoor pool with a cascading waterfall. A 10th floor lounge and sundeck overlooking the ocean invite travelers to enjoy the marine breezes, while the 17th floor ocean view fitness center will invigorate guests. The Ultra Craft Cocktail Lounge is staffed by expert mixologists, or choose to dine poolside for breakfast, lunch or dinner with the Tortugas Café & Tiki Bar. Diamond Resorts Reviews experts appreciate the professionally-staffed kids’ game room, intended to keep youngsters entertained when they aren’t on the beach or in the water.
The Turtle Cay Resort is located on the quieter, south end of the Boardwalk, featuring very spacious one and two bedroom suites right on the beach. The resort’s private courtyard boasts two outdoor pools, two hot tubs and a gazebo for watching the waves – or enjoying the resort’s nine-foot high waterfall. The bright rooms offer free WiFi, DVD players, microwaves and mini-fridges. Special suites include fireplaces, balconies and full kitchens with granite counters. Free access to the pools, fitness center, and tennis court at a neighboring hotel is also provided.
