Horrible stay. I don't think this resort can handle, or keep up, to accommodate the amount of guests for certain times of the year. Unless,it's always like this. It was very smelly. Especially, in the elevators-that's with them,also, feeling like 120° of pure humidity. We got soaked,in sweat, everytime we used them. The elevators were, also, constantly breaking down. We...

It was dissapointing from the time we got there to the time we left. We were told by the rental company (Elevate Cleans) that we could have an early check in at 2.00 instead of 4.00. We figured we could be the rush. My family of 5 left early and I drove 12 hours straight and got there around 1.30... More

Went for a weekend trip, unfortunately this is one of the few places that will allow you you rent for less than a week at a time. We stayed 4 nights as opposed to a 7 night minimum at most places during peak season. We arrived late and check-in was actually easier than I anticipated it was going to be... More

We were told when we booked that our condo was handicapped accessible. When we arrived we were told that no condos in the building are handicapped accessible. My wife had to sleep in her wheel chair in the living room. Handicapped bath room is located in management section and is locked after 4:00.

We had a wonderful experience. You do need to remember a couple of things. Each unit is owned privately and therefore decor and how well it is updated is individual. The building is older therefore the elevators were slow. But we learned the tricks and it never really bothered us. Yes...parking garage is tight but that never bothered us either.... More

The room was exactly what was advertised on Dune Realty. No complaints about the room itself. The ocean was nice and overall resort was in a great location, not crowded. I had 3 issues during my stay: 1-The parking garage is horrendous, 2 way traffic with no room to pass. Had to back up several times and have someone direct... More

We stayed in room 204 at Royal Gardens last week. Pros: Great Ocean View Very comfy king size bed Cons: The room was nasty. The kitchen stove was rusted beyond belief. The cabinets were sticky with food debris on them. The shower in the smaller bathroom would not adjust and you had to stand all the way against the wall.... More

I rented 2 units this past week (June 20-27). I must say that the Maintenance staff, (especially, Sean),security staff and the Dunes Realty staff were most helpful and courteous and did a wonderful job attending to our every need. The unit 211 leaves a lot to be desired... The card said cleaned by Rise and Shine Cleaning Service... well that... More

The room was dated and dirty. My feet were dirty from walking barefoot on the carpet in our room. The ceiling tiles in our room were broken and hanging down. The air conditioning couldn't keep up with the heat. One elevator was broken, and it would take 45 minutes to get to the 16th floor. Totally unacceptable. The pool water... More
