“Best Hotel in Myrtle Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

My family and I had so much fun at this hotel. Having 2 waterparks is cool. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Its quiet and away from the strip. No loud college kids. Pls go to Dunes Village, u wont be disappointed. I would be willing to work there. The bathrooms r huge, nice livingrooms, 2 tvs. So much to do at this hotel. Kids club is great.

Room Tip: the ones that have a washer and dryer

Green Features: very environmentally friendly, no big waste smell.They r also really big on not using alot of water for laundry purposes and encourage u not use a towel to conserve water. They just care alot about the enviroment and the people that stay with them and their families.

Thank you so much for your wonderful 5 star review of Dunes Village Resort. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience.

We are in a quieter part of town, away from the hustle and bustle. We have very few buildings around us, affording our guests a lovely view of what I like to call the "Million Dollar Mile."

We have awesome amenities and scheduled activities daily, all year long.

We are glad you came to visit, and look forward to seeing you again!

We stayed in the Ocean front double bed studio suite overlooking the ocean. It was clean. Staff was very friendly. We had 2- 10 yo's who loved the water park. I liked the fact that this hotel is away from the busier part of Myrtle Beach. We did have one minor inconvenience, the hotel had problems with the Free WI-FI internet. Out of the 5 days we were there it only worked 2 days, of those 2 days it didn't work all day. That being said, we will stay there again.

Room Tip: I would choose any Ocean front room

THank you for your lovely 5 star review of Dunes VIllage Resort. We appreciate all the nice things you said about us, and we are pleased to hear that your family enjoyed all we have to offer.

The next time you come visit, the WiFi will be in perfect working order. We had a renovation project on our system that took a bit longer than was expected, and most of the kinks are now worked out. We are up and running at almost 100% WiFi access now. Thanks for your patience, and come back soon!

This was my family's second year at Dunes and it was great. My 2 and 4 year olds LOVED it. It was plenty to do without even leaving the resort. We had the OF 2 bedroom suite and it was absolutely FABULOUS! The view was awesome from the 11th floor. Check out my pics! We love Dunes Village Resort!!!!

We stayed in the Palmetto Tower from 6/16/13 to 6/21/13 and loved every minute of it. We had the Oceanfront King Studio. We were directly overlooking the pool, tiki bar, lawn area and putt-putt course. Our room was very clean and was the perfect size for a family of 4. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cooking utensils as we ate breakfast and lunch in the room everyday. There are so many activities going on daily for the children to participate in! My 9yo son and nephew were constantly on the go. While I spent most of my time on the beach, they made use of every amenity the resort offered for kids. We went with my sister's family, so we split off on who was watching the kids. We also had 2-16 yo's and an 18yo with us that loved the facilities as well.
The staff was wonderful as well! They were extremely friendly and helpful. I received no less than 6 "hello's", "good mornings", "are you enjoying your stay with us", everyday. They even came to the room on several occasions to make sure we were happy with the housekeeping job that was being done.
I highly recommend this resort for anyone going with children. I would also suggest to get the ocean front rooms!
Thanks for a wonderful stay!!!

The pool /slide areas were wonderful for adults and young children. My group included 3 toddlers and we all had a blast. We had a great room right on the beach and enough complimentary breakfast passes for the adults and the kids ate free! I will be returning to take advantage of the outside cabana bar!

Room Tip: We chose some kind of angle beach veiw room. it's not beach front but we could still see the lov...

Thank you for taking the time to offer your lovely 5 star review of Dunes Village Resort. We appreciate your kind words!

We have definitely done our homework with regard to knowing what children want in the way of fun. With all the water features we have combined with our year round planned activities, all the kids that stay here want to come back year after year, and they do!

We hope that you and your family feel the same and that we see you again soon!

We stayed with my 2 kids 12 and 9. They both loved the water areas. We stayed in a 1 room suite w/ kitchen. The room was as expected. We did have to ask for towels 1 day since they did not replenish them. We did however mysteriously lose all 4 wristbands that were on the dresser, the front desk did not hesitant to give us new ones. Parking was a bit of a pain, and the garage is tight. We watched the staff at night pick up all leftover items in the pool area and rearrange the chairs to make it look nice for the morning. We normally are the type of family that will go somewhere else to stay just to experience something else. But I am pretty sure the next time we go it will be to this hotel. It had everything we were looking for in a hotel,plus it was away from the more busier part of the beach, which had the best rates and very good reviews. We stayed in the Palmetto.

This is our second year at Dunes Village and needless to say.....they rock. All the staff were very polite, friendly and just stellar. Shout out to Anthony in Security....always smiling. Our son was stung by a jellyfish while swimming in the ocean and one of the waterpark workers knew just what to do.......who would have thought vinegar would do the trick. Shout out to the head chef (I believe her name was "Jen" who helped the gentleman (sorry to say we can't remember his name but he was very kind and compassionate with our son) who was helping with our son's jellyfish sting. We just can't brag on this place enough. Some of the carpet and furniture is starting to show wear but with the volume of people this place serves, understandable. Yes you will have to travel to go to places but it quiet and very family friendly. Keep up the great job all you awesome, wonderful people at Dunes Village who work in front and behind the scenes......we brag on you to whoever will listen and we will see ya next year!!!!!!
