Virginia Beach has everything a beach-goer could ever want. Imagine dolphin spotting, riding along the coastline in a beach-cruiser, swimming in the warm ocean, dining on fresh seafood (or fishing for it), and so much more. Virginia Beach is a must-see iconic East Coast beach town. Here are five hotels you can’t miss during your visit.

Virginia Beach Resort Hotel and Conference Center

Offering complimentary bicycles to explore the beaches and nearby trails of cypress trees, the Virginia Beach Resort and Conference Center is the perfect base for an explorer. Choose between visiting the Virginia Aquarium, the First Landing State Park, the three-mile boardwalk, or walking through downtown Virginia Beach – this hotel is just a short stroll or drive away from it all. Relax on the hotel’s private beach, where you might be lucky enough to spot dolphins swimming by in the distance.

Turtle Cay Resort

If you’re a traveler who loves spacious rooms, Turtle Cay Resort is where you’ll find them. Complete with full kitchens, living rooms perfect for socializing, and large balconies, this resort is great for families and visitors wanting to feel at home. Request a room that overlooks the hotel’s stellar pool area, where you can catch a glimpse of fellow holiday makers enjoying their time. Located just one block away from the beach, this hotel also happens to be on the quieter end of Virginia Beach, where you’re nearly guaranteed to have a peaceful night of sleep after a long day of exploring.

The Dolphin Inn

The best rooms are located beachside, with large balconies overlooking the sea at the Dolphin Inn. After a full day at the beach, enjoy the hotel’s rooftop pool where you can catch a panoramic view of the Virginia Beach skyline. If you’re after a hotel with a central location for a cheap price above all else, then the Dolphin Inn is a great choice for you.

The Cavalier Hotel

Established in 1927, The Cavalier Hotel is not your average beach hotel. Iconic, unique, and regal, the hotel is currently undergoing a $250 million renovation and is expected to open later in the year. The hotel plans to keep its old charm but completely restore all amenities, common areas, and rooms – making it worth the wait to visit as soon as it reopens. Choose this resort if you’re the type of traveller who likes to combine history and holiday.

Sheraton Virginia Beach Oceanfront Hotel

Love watching the sunrise above the sea? Look no further than Sheraton Virginia Beach Oceanfront Hotel. This resort offers onsite dining, multiple pools, a fitness center, and private balconies – 25 of which have ocean views. Regulars cite the location being one of the hotel’s best selling points, as it’s just across the street from the beach and boardwalk, perfect for people watching and dolphin spotting.
