“Fun time in the winter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

If you are looking for a great place to stay, this place beats them all. They have two indoor water parks. These parks are fun for all ages, "for kids from one to ninety-two". The rooms were huge, beds comfortable, view outstanding, and room enough for the entire family. We got the suite with four bedrooms; each room had two queens and it's own bath (no sharing). Everyone was so nice and helpful. The food in the restaurant is exceptional. The worst part of this visit was having to leave.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the huge balcony (7th floor) north side if you want a place for kids to play o...

The Dunes Village Resort is a great family resort! They offer a wide array of amenities for relaxation and kids activities. Most excitingly, the hotel offers not one, but two amazing indoor water parks on-site with thrilling water slides. The hotel offers a wide variety of on-site dining from two restaurants, a poolside bar/grill, and a coffee shop. The breakfast buffet in The Admirals Room is fantastic, along with the service. The service and food is also great in the resorts other restaurant, Captain's Cafe. (The fried chicken and Caesar salad is great!) The hotel also offers a hand-dandy gift shop with souvenirs and items you may have left at home. The resort is mainly for families, perhaps another resort if you wish to have a more adult-like relaxation time. I would definitely return to this oceanfront resort.

Room Tip: The oceanfront rooms are definitely worth the extra money, as well as condo's and suites.

This resort is a wonderful family get away. Although during our recent stay they were making some renovations, we were granted breakfast and a discount for our slight disappointment. (two of the slides were closed) We will be back to stay at this wonderful place on the ocean. We love to go and just not leave. The kids are entertained by golf, water slides, play ground and more. This is truly a family tradition and the sunrise is heaven from the balcony!

Dune Village is a quality resort with lots of activities offered. They have something for everyone. The indoor water parks are nice to have when the weather is cold outside. The rooms are clean and spacious. The breakfast buffet is probably one of the best I have had at any resort before. The staff is courteous and friendly. The area is also prime for being close to many attractions, but also located in an area of the beach that is more private and quiet. This resort is ideal for families, but also is nice for couples as well. I look forward to our next visit to Dunes Village.

Room Tip: beachfront and high floor is optimal

Our family has stayed here for the past 5 years and love everything about this hotel. We appreciate most: The friendliness and knowledge of the staff - who don't just try to make a great first impression - but impressed us the entire stay. The cleanliness, convenience to everything, and excellent pools, water park and hot tubs make this such a wonderful place for everyone. This has become a family tradition for our family and we are pleased to recommend this hotel to couples and families of all ages.

Room Tip: We choose a 4-bedroom/4-bath unit that holds our family nicely. We also get a couple of 2 bedroom u...

Family traditions are very important in this day and age. We are pleased that Dunes Village Resort is part of your traditions. We have all kinds of diversions to cover even the pickiest of people, from ping pong and pool tables to water slides, crafts and games, and even a playground. Mini golf? Got it! Tennis courts? Got those too!

Friendly staff, clean accomodations and a quiet beach make for the perfect setting for the perfect vacation.

Keep the tradition alive, and come back soon! See you then!

My family (8 adults and 3 children) rented a four bedroom condo for three days at Thanksgiving. This was our second Thanksgiving at Dunes Village Resort and both times had a wonderful time. We really enjoyed the water park and the outdoor pools which were heated. The condo was great with plenty of room for everyone. We cooked a big Thanksgiving dinner in the kitchen and by planning our time, were able to have everything ready on time. The kitchen was very well eqipped with plenty of cookware and dishes. The staff was wonderful as we had several special requests and they went out of their way to accommodate us. Thanksgiving morning we all participated in the Surfside Beach Turkey Trot which was lots of fun and a great way to prepare for our feast later that day. We will be back next Thanksgiving.
