“Spacious and clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

I rented a 3 bedroon, 3 bath unit thru Redweek.com, for the week after July 4th, and was quite pleased. The unit was quite spacious, with updated upholstered furniture and all the bedding was new, Summer weight down comforters and thin coverlets. All bedrooms had ceiling fans and sufficient closet space. Bathrooms, likewise, were large and roomy. Hallways wide and maneuverable.
Our unit overlooked the pool and although we walked just around the corner to Marriott's Barony (owners) for pool and beach, we did make use of the activites around the pool. The corn hole area was a pleasant surprise. They also had a few fun social activities at the pool.
The kitchen was fully functional, but missing a few items,(bring your own outdoor grill tools if you plan to use one of the many grills). The stackable W/D unit is in a large closet to the side of the kitchen. This is one area that needs updating. The sliding wood doors are heavy and because they jump track so frequently, high caution is required. Another thing that needs attention/updating/replacing are the dresser/chest furniture. Outdated and old, evry piece was missing at least one drawer pull, rendering the space useless. A small, but inconvenient matter.
The dining room table and chairs, again, with generous size. Four TVs, and even a nice little stereo unit.
In these times of tough economy and societal upheaval my husband and I appreciated the double door secuity layout and monetary value.
We travel frequently thru our hotel points and timeshare exchanges, and as one of our home resorts is on HH, this property is a definite keeper on our list.

We thank you for your feedback and are glad that you had a great time here at Royal Dunes. The wooden furniture in the condos was not part of our most recent refurbishment as it has a ten year lifespan. We will began changing this during our next phase that begins in 2014 with a building per year. Our staff works hard to maintain these items and are sorry that you had a few minor issues. Grill utensils are available upon request in the clubhouse. We hope to see you again soon!

Just got back from a 4night trip to Hilton Head. We stayed in a 3bd 3bth condo at Royal Dunes resort. Was surprised how nice the room was upon arrival. Really big and clean rooms. We went with another couple and still had plenty of room for other guests. Beach was a short walking distance( maybe a block ) but never had to walk due to staff droppIng you off and picking you back up in an oversized golf cart. I will definitely stay there again my next trip to HH. Staff was great as well. Enjoyed the pool and the cornhole on the resor the best. Rob Simpson gives this place 2 thumbs up. It I had another hand I'd give it 3 thumbs up

We have been timeshare owners for 6 years here. We come for one week in June and 2 wks in Oct. We first visited HH 40 years ago when we came here for our Honeymoon. Our kids love it here and now our grandchildren. The rooms are always being maintained and upgraded. They are super roomy.We always get two rooms across from each other and kids run all over the place. It's great! Beach is a very short walk. There is a golf cart shuttle, but we always walk.
Everyone here is super friendly and we enjoy the activities they have for us. Today was BBQ for lunch. Very well attended and lots of fun. There are 2 pools, kiddie pool and hot tub. Very well located for many good restaurants and stores. Kitchens big and have everything you need. Pool towels are supplied also. Washer and dryer in room. This year they updated all bedding. Wonderful mattress and linen!

My parents and I have been going here ever since i was a baby it is kind of a tradition for us, we love to come here each year and play the games and the shuttle service is amazing. It is a short distance from the beach and has good size bedrooms.

My parents own a tiemshare here and we have been coming for years...This place and it's staff are wonderful. Fantastic location mid-island with three golf courses within the grounds. The units are all three bedroom/three bath (i believe) with a huge kitchen/dining area and fantastic deck, depending on which side you stay one there is either a view overlooking the pool or the golf course. Debbie at the front desk can help with any type of rental or tour you want...and give some great recommendations too! And of course if they is anything needed throughout you stay Audrey, Margaret, and Will are always floating around and are more than super friendly and willing to help out. They do have an owners breakfast (on Sundays I think) and then BBQ (on Wed i think) where you can meet everyone...Overall love this resort and it location. Walking distance to the beach or just relax by one their private pools...

Room Tip: All have large decks with patio furniture, but depending on your sun level Bldg 1 get AM sun versus...
