This is my third stay at the Dunes and I enjoyed it as I have the past times. We stayed in the King room which is a decent size with a balcony area on the second floor. We always enjoy the bar and cabaret areas as well as the pool area which has been upgraded over the past few years.... More

I had a great time here. The service and the staff were great. There were other events going on here in the evening. I'm glad that the beach area was within walking distance of the hotet This is a great place for the LGBT community to come to have a wonderful time.

We have been visiting Saugatuck and staying at the Dunes Resort since they opened 34 years ago. I have never reviewed it until now. The resort has had its ups and downs through the years but was always THE place to stay for the LGBT community with their 92 rooms, multiple bars, cabaret, pool, & lush grounds. The present owners...

People said this was a good place to stay and have fun. It wasn't. I made reservations for 2 weekends. I went the first weekend and did NOT have a good time. I came back and cancelled the next reservation cause I did not want to spend another weekend there. I cancelled over a month in advance and got charged... More

Nice resort, the whole area is great the nightlife in the bar is excellent. The staff at the front desk is a little testy at times, but the rest of the staff is very good. I would recommend a week day stay

My partner and I are from Kalamazoo, MI, approximately 1 hour away from Saugatuck/Douglas. We enjoy fraternizing with like people on occasion. Yes the drinks are expensive and there is a hefty cover at times, but where else can you have this level of fun without paying for it. The rooms are always clean, and if not, they are made... More

I stay here year around and been to many gay resorts around the world. This facility by far exceeds other gay resorts and even includes the surrounding nature. By far this gay resort is better and cleaner when you compare it to other gay resorts. Cover was included in our stay and ice machines are available in the summer. I... More

My partner and I stayed here recently and were impressed by the level of service and friendliness of the staff. Some of the rooms are all but "average" but it is all clean and very acceptable. They have a a great pool, outside stockade area, inside bar and dance floor.

I stayed two nights at the Dunes in a 2 Bedroom Cabin. The accommodations are shabby -- poor quality furnishings and run-down. They still have CRT televisions. The towels were awful!! There are a lot of closeted creeps around -- one that punched me in the eye for taking a photograph in public. The staff were kind enough to rush... More
