We had a great two bedroom unit. It was configured to have a king sized bed in each with a separate bathroom. In addition there were three balconies. I would definitely recommend for two couples traveling together. The only small downside was the need to ask for a few things to fully stock the kitchen with dishwashing items. The front... More

It was very quiet on the property for this time of year considering all of the golfers staying in the area. There was never a crowd of people to deal with and we hardly ever saw anyone in the hallways or elevator. We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo. I assume that it was privately owned as there was a... More

The staff was helpful and friendly, but not intrusive. The resort is super clean and I was impressed by how fresh and clean it smelled when I first entered the lobby. The small pool was perfect for the little ones and the larger pool which flows into the small one was just right! The hot tub was enjoyed by all... More

The sleeping rooms have a relaxing atmosphere and very accommodating with perfect views to the Coastal Waterways. The entire staff is professional and makes your... More

As an interior designer, it was extremely important to select the perfect wedding reception venue for my daughter’s December wedding. Since we are local residents in the Myrtle Beach area we toured every possible site and found that the Marina Inn at Grande Dunes simply had it all!! The Grande Ballroom accommodated our 220 guests very easily, and the superior... More

The room advertised was said to come with a balcony. We did not get a balcony, just. Window that was too high for my children to look out of. The resort was nice, not the room was nothing special. There was a piece of furniture broken, dust everywhere and a smear of blood on the shower. Also, our toiletries were... More

We recently stayed here to celebrate my wife’s birthday and the stay was memorable and enjoyable. After making the reservations, I received an email from the hotel asking if it was a special occasion and I responded about her birthday. At check-in she was wished a happy birthday – a nice touch. This is a very nice inn with many... More
