Best Things About the Resort:
Its location, unit layout. . .everything about Four Sails is a "best thing".

Resort Experience:
Four Sails is a thirteen story tower. The one-bedroom units like the one we occupied are on the end of each floor. Each has a balcony to the front, and a balcony to the rear overlooking the city of Virginia Beach. The other units on the floor are two bedroom units overlooking the beach. Our unit was well laid out and the bathroom featured a whirlpool that might pass as a water polo venue in a third world nation (i.e. big).

We were struck by the low-key, friendly nature of the place. Many of the people we met at the RCI meet-and-greet were locals (i.e. Virginians), some of whom seemed to live just down the road. Some of them owned several weeks at the resort which tells you a lot. The only problem faced by the sales rep was his lack of inventory... this resort is pretty well sold out and that should tell you something too.

There is a nice little Greek restaurant on site with some outdoor tables overlooking the beach. There is also an indoor pool, an exercise room and if you feel the need to go fishing, the pier is a short walk. Parking is on-site and it is covered.

Those are the details...the beach in front is clean and wide and the swimming is incredible. There is a nice little surf here and the dolphins will entertain you in the morning as they parade up the beach. We were fortunate enough to be there at the time of the Oceana Air Show and I thought at one point that two of the Blue Angels were going to land on the balcony.

We didn't stray far from the resort because we didn't want to. I will add, however, that should you arrive, and the drive has been long and you just want to go out for a quick bite to eat without getting back into your car, don't bother with the Atlantic Ave. restaurants to the rear. Go downstairs... if it's not open try another resort up the boardwalk. You want to see more? Try foursails
