“Great for Families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Resort was recommended by friends and was as advertised. We had an ocean front suite with full kitchen and a nice patio. It was a cold weekend so didn't get to sit out much though.
Water parks were nice (although the outside walk between the 2 was really cold) and the kids had fun. It did get quite crowded on Saturday.
All staff was great except the front desk where it was slow and disinterested. Tiffany in the Captain's Cafe was fantastic and really 'gets it' when it comes to delivering great service.
Pricing in Jan/ Feb at < $100 per night made this a great deal and hotel is close to attractions (aquarium etc).

Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your Dunes Village Resort vacation. We are glad to hear that you found us to be as you expected.

The walk between the 2 buildings is something that a lot of people do not understand. The reason we do not have a covered walkway between the 2 buildings is because we do not own the property between the 2 buildings. It is owned by the city of Myrtle Beach, so we are not allowed to build anything on it. I wish that were not the case, and hope that one day it changes. In the meantime, whenever you come in the cooler months, make sure to pack a cover up of some sort.

Thank you for mentioning Tiffany at the Captains Cafe. She is a delight to have on staff, and works very hard to ensure our guests are well taken care of.

We look forward to having you back sometime soon. See you then.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your Dunes Village Resort experience. We are so glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed all that we have to offer.

Did you know that we have a year round Activities Deaprtment that offers scheduled fun every day, all year? And we also have a 9 hole mini golf course that may look small, but is very challenging. And basketball, tennis and volleyball courts, too.

Waterslides, hot tubs, pool tables, ping pong, and so much more! THe fun never stops around here.

Thanks again for joining us. We cannot wait to have you back!

We had a wonderful time here when we stayed. The resort is clean, the rooms are well equipped, and the staff is friendly. The indoor water park is cleaned and well staffed, as well as a great option to get away from the heat or the rain for that matter. I have recommended this hotel to many of my friends and they too have loved it. I also liked the area of Myrtle this is located in. It is a bit quieter and more family friendly area. You really don't even need to leave the resort, it has everything you need. However it is a short drive to many of Myrtle Beach's main attractions.

Quiet, convenient, clean......you hit some of the wonderful aspects of Dunes Village Resort, and we appreciate your noticing.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. And thank you for telling all your friends! Word of mouth has been our best advertising, allowing us to grow and add fun things. The newest addition is a fun play center in place of out current playground. I wont spoil the surprise, but it is COOL!

We hope to see you soon for some more family fun!

My wife and I decided to take a weekend trip to Myrtle Beach for some shopping and a night out. This place is as advertised-family friendly, and well maintained. We has a king ocean view suite, which was clean and comfortable. The desk staff were pleasant and helpful. All the staff we encountered were very pleasant. They have a large parking garage directly across the street. Hotel is easy to access from either 501 or 22. It was convenient to everything we wanted to do and see. Lots of families there, making use of the indoor pool and lazy river.

Bottom line-I will stay here again when we go back to Myrtle Beach.

My 84 year old mother stayed for a month and was well taken care of. My husband and I brought her down and stayed a week, We let the frount desk know and they checked on her often.All of the staff management,were freindly and her room was clean and well taken care of. When we came back down to pick her up, the staff paid for her meal the last day and even knew her by name and said they would miss her. We have stayed here often and this was the only hotel we would ever consider leaving her. She already wants to make plans for next year!!!!! BEST family hotel EVER!

Room Tip: room 1406 has a great view,and no one above you.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of Dunes Village Resort. It warms our hearts to know that you feel safe leaving your mother in our midst. We love our monthly guests and offer many fun options to entertain them while they are here. We try to get to know them, if they let us, and we always hope to see them back the following year.

Many of our "Snowbirds" come back year after year, so it is like family coming home for a visit! I am happy to hear that this is the only place you would consider leaving your mother. We will continue to treat her like family as long as you will let us! See you next year!

Dunes Village Resort is a local getaway I had not known about until recently. I took my grandson there for an evening/night of fun. The service was superb from the valet parking attendant to the front desk clerk to the pool attendants to every employee I ran into. Truly felt that I was "special" in their eyes. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend the resort to anyone looking for a special getaway, especially if they have kids.

This was our second stay in the past six weeks. The Hotel is in a great location. Our room, an ocean front king, was clean and adequate for our purpose. My only complaint (minor) is that on both visits, the check in process was very slow. This was due to the fact that there was only one receptionist. Breakfast was included and of good value. Although we did not utilize the water parks, they were in heavy use and the kids seemed to be enjoying them. I would recommend this Hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to review Dunes VIllage Resort. We are pleased to hear that you joined us twice in 6 weeks, and that overall you had a wonderful experience. I am sorry to hear that the front desk was slightly understaffed. That is something that we have already taken care of, so the next visit should be a speedy check-in for you.

We hope to see you back here very soon! Thanks again for staying at Dunes Village Resort.
