How to Get There
First and foremost, you need to know that this is a timeshare resort. You will get a high-pressure sales pitch when you check in. After a long drive to get there, that was very frustrating. They've put some modern amenities in the rooms (TVs, appliances, fixtures) but the overall feel of the hotel is retro. There is no continental breakfast whatsoever which is insane and there is no hotel market. Only vending machines. On the plus side, we stayed in a suite and it was HUGE. Floor to ceiling windows and a great ocean front view. Bathrooms in the suite are modern. At $1300 for three nights however, I think it's the least to expect. One side of the suite did unfortunately smell like smoke which was very disappointing since it's a non-smoking hotel. The indoor pool in this facility is 21 and over however, they have a sister hotel next door and you're invited to use their indoor pool and amenities. Although we're satisfied with the room, overall it definitely isn't worth the cost. And they also charge you an additional $22 daily "resort fee". Get ready for that when you check in. And parking, although free... is a little over a block away. Not exactly convenient. Hilton or Hyatt properties are still the best places to stay in VA Beach IMO.
If you get a chance to stop by the Ultra lounge at the Oceanaire ask for Ty. His cocktails are the best in Virginia Beach. He is very personable and knows his craft. He will make it an exceptional visit.
We stayed here for an evening in August. The hotel was quite packed and these made swimming or finding a pool chair impossible. Our room was amazing. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite from a 1 bedroom! The room was extremely spacious and accommodating. The deck was also wonderful! It had 2 chaise lounges, a table and chairs. We really enjoyed our stay, but for the price and crowdedness, I would not go again in August.
