My husband and I just returned from a our first stay at Forest Dunes, and we were not disappointed! We absolutely LOVED everything about this place...perfect location, amazing view from our balcony, clean, nice pool area and hot tub, friendly staff and plenty of space for the two of us. We have stayed at other places in Myrtle Beach, but... More

Thank you for your comments regarding your first stay at Forest Dunes Resort. We are very pleased to hear how much you LOVED everything. Forest Dunes really does have the perfect location. The beach is much nicer in this area. That's why they call it the "Golden Mile", or the "Cabana Section" with all the quaint cabanas along the beach.... More

I've stayed at a few different condos and resorts in Myrtle Beach. As with every other one, they are all similar in themselves, but I found the Forest Dunes Resort to be quite a nice experience. My girlfriend and I stayed in room 903. The condo was very clean and well taken care of. The owners had it updated enough... More

I didn't research this property since I booked it solely because my brother's family was staying there, so I really didn't know what to expect. Forest Dunes was a very pleasant surprise! First of all, everything was CLEAN. I even heard other guests commenting on this. The pools were immaculate. People were obviously doing their jobs and it was impressive.... More

My son and I took us a much needed vacation at Forest Dunes Resort. My son is a motivated 4 year old and I still walked away from our four night stay totally relaxed. He was felt right at home the one bedroom condo as did I. We stayed in room 705. The decor had a homely feeling to it.... More

Although not our first stay here, my daughter and I arrived for a Thursday and Friday getaway. We arrived three hours earlier than check-in time. No problem, management let us go up to our corner suite that was clean and ready for us. The lamps were on even though it was 12 noon when we arrived. It made us feel... More

Thank you for letting us and everyone else know how much you like Forest Dunes Resort. We always try to have rooms ready before the normal 3:00 PM check in time.

the lazy river was a joke- it was the size of a small pool - with tubes to go around in, the lobby was a wicker couch and a table with a computer on it- the office was the size of a closet. the elevators took about 20 minutes to get- each time you needed them- going up or coming... More

We stayed at this property last year and liked it well enough to return this summer. My overall impression last year was that it was outdated but clean and in a great location for a great value.

We are sorry you were not satisfied with your most recent stay. When we first read your comments, we thought you were stating the suite you stayed in was outdated, but after checking the suite you stayed in, we realized you could not be referring to it, but were referring to the vacuum cleaner. Normally we would not even lend... More
