We just got back from our first family trip to Myrtle Beach. We had a great stay at Dunes Village. The indoor water park was a big hit with our 7 yr old son. Also, the hotel is in a nice, quieter location. I didn't appreciate this until I was in MB and saw what the downtown area is like (noise, cars, crowds, etc.). It's still very well located, though. We ate breakfast in the Admiral's Room every morning, and it was a nice buffet. The check-in system is a little overwhelming, but that may just be because I am not sure how MB "works". We didn't bring a ton of stuff, but there were lots of people who did and unloading seemed like a nightmare. There were people to help, but they were VERY busy. Again, this may just be "how it's done" and I'm not used to it. Overall, it was a terrific experience; one we'll not soon forget. On the last morning our boy declared he was, in fact, not going home with us and was going to stay at the Dunes Village. I guess you can't be more highly recommended than that!
