“Beautiful views”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Wonderful location, friendly staff. Room was older, wallpaper falling off and a little smelly. Apparently other units are more updated, just not room 810!! Easy beach access, parking garage behind resort was nice. Checkout on Sunday was a pain, 2? Elevators for 18 floors and only 4 luggage carts...

Room Tip: Ask for an updated room- not 810!!

Thank you for your tripadvisor review. We really appreciate you and your constructive criticism. We agree, the next update this condo needs is to remove the wallpaper and paint the walls. We hope you noticed the new appliances, flat screen TV, and ocean front balcony renovations which feature new sliding glass doors to access the balcony from both the living room and bedroom. Please note we have 12 luggage carts - most times 12 carts prove to be adequate, but for the few times where everyone ends up leaving around the same time we plan on adding additional carts. Thanks again for your comments. We hope you visit again soon and have a great summer!

Forest Dunes is a timeshare resort. We stayed in a 3 bedroom on the 12th floor. The place was really nice... on the beach. I don't have anything negative to say about this place. It is in a great location.. near everything and not in the center of al the craziness of Myrtle. Will definitely go back.

Thank your for your tripadvisor review. We really appreciate you and we definately look forward to your next visit. Please note Forest Dunes is not a timeshare. Most condos are individually owned and most are rented through an on-site rental management company affilliated with Vacation Myrtle Beach, currently composed of 13 different Myrtle Beach resorts. You can reach the rental company at 1-800-845-7787. Please come back soon. Have a great summer!

I've stayed here three times now (my wife has been here 4 or 5), and while different units are better than others, I haven't had a bad stay. If something isn't quite right, the staff will work hard to ensure it is corrected. It is a safe environment, and I had no reservations about bringing my 13 month old. We had a great stay at the beach, used the pool, and made use of the free wireless internet, and the kitchen amenities. Great stay, great price.

We've stayed at Forest Dunes for several years and continue to go back. We absolutely love the location along the Golden Mile area of Myrtle Beach. It's located just outside of the busy Grand Strand strip in a more quiet, residential area of beach. The condos are all individually owned and decorated. We've always found them to be very comfortable and fully equipped for our needs. The price can't be beat, especially in the fall when we prefer to visit. The value for what you get is tremendous. We'll definitely return!

One of the best resorts I have stayed at in years. Very quiet resort no matter how busy. Very friendly and helpful staff. We were there during the Tropical storm and still found plenty to do to keep our four girls occupied.

We will be staying there again next year. We had a blast. Everyone was very nice and pleasant. The area was not crowded and it was a very family orientated place for kids. The rooms was very clean and had plenty space. We will definitely tell friends and family about forest dunes.
