“Who needs a comedy club when you have Colin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

What a fun way to end our evening! My husband and I were seeking a couple of hours of pure entertainment and a chance to retire our "mommy and daddy" capes for the evening and sit back, relax with a drink in hand and share in some laughter and adult conversation and Colin made that happen.

He was on point all night making sure our drinks weren't empty and our needs met. He reminded us of a younger Robin Williams and had us roaring with laughter. It was a treat to leave with some additional laugh lines and memories.

You are not the first person to notice Colins wild sense of humor. That man loves his job, and it shows! Thanks for noticing, and thank you also for taking the time to share your thoughts. We appreciate the kind words.

When you are ready for some more family fun, with a little alone time thrown in, come see us again. Colin will be ready for you!

We was on the 12th floor ocean front view and had a very nice view. The complaints would be the following. The bedroom and living room furniture was out dated and old. The curtains in the living room looked like something out of the 80s. The carpet though out the condo needed to be replaced. If you want to cook the dishes are minimal. They didn't even furnish a baking sheet, had to buy one. The cutting knifes were very bad, I should have brought my own chef knife. The parking garage is across the street and not connection. When I used the gas grill at the swimming pool, the people said that I had to pay $75 to rent the grills but they were nice enough to let me use them. I couldn't believe it. Every condo I had stayed at the grills were open to the guest. Never thought I would have to rent the cabanas just to use the grill. This condo was not worth the cost, I expected luxury and that wasn't case. The positives were easy access to the beach and was about 1 mile from all the activities downtown.

Thank you for taking the time to review Dunes Village Resort. Our number one goal is to provide excellent service and an overall value for you during your vacation. I am sorry to hear that you felt that all we have to offer is not worth the cost.

Our water features are abundant, our daily scheduled activities are plentiful, and we have ample other diversions like ping pong, pool tables, and mini golf to help entertain. We also have basketball courts, tennis courts, and a sand volleyball court with all the necessary equipment at our front desk for you to easily check out.

Our gas grills are included with our cabana rental, as are some luxury chairs, a television, a cooler of ice, a ceiling fan and some other perks to renting a cabana.

We hope that your overall stay was enjoyable, and hope to see you again. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts.

We booked Dunes Village Resort beginning of the year. Reserved a block of rooms for our baseball team for a tournament and was guaranteed all rooms would be in same tower. Upon check in rooms were scattered throughout resort and our room was filthy. There was a ton of food on kitchen floor, hand prints on fridge, and doors and light switches had stuff all over them appeared to be soda. We called housekeeping when got there and they came and cleaned room while at dinner when got back kitchen floor still had food on it so cleaned myself. One of the families on our team showed up to check in with their confirmation and were told they did not have their reservation and resort was full so nothing could do. We reserved a cabana all week by the pool had confirmation and went to cabana one of the days and they had rented all the cabanas including the one we rented. Anytime tried to eat at restaurant waited at least 15 minutes before even acknowledged. Considering the star rating we did not have high expectations but do expect a clean room and semi good service. The boys enjoyed the waterpark but nothing at resort is taken care of or clean. Would not return. My 12 year old couldn't wait to go home!

This resort is an awesome place for family vacationing. Everything on the property you could need and never have to leave. Great food on site and great hours to eat. Valet parking for whoever chooses to use that service. Plenty of children's activities and prizes for all not just the winners. Rain or shine there is always fun at this resort. The staff in every department are very courteous and helpful. Would recommend the resort to all my family and friends. An awesome experience staying at the Dunes.

Room Tip: Oceanfront queen suite is the bomb.

We just returned from our vacation to Dunes Village Resort where we thoroughly enjoyed our four day stay. Our 7th floor oceanfront room provided an outside terrace with a wonderful view of the beach and ocean. The indoor water park provided a wonderful refuge for our family when the afternoon showers started a couple of days. The remainder of the time we enjoyed our time between the outdoor pools and the wide sandy beach. The staff was outstanding including the valet / bellman that greeted us in a downpour to help unload our luggage under a canopy to help us avoid getting drenched and the housekeeper that serviced our room daily. We would very much recommend this resort to any family with children.

Cannot express how much we enjoyed our stay!! Staff members are so friendly and accommodating!! Room beautifully appointed and spotless. Location is wonderful, a very quiet residential area of MB, but super close to all activities. The pool areas are clean and there's something for everyone! Children's activities were great for the kids. Housekeeping arrived every morning promptly and was very thorough. Always greeted by smiling faces at the front desk. They even offer a shuttle service to parking garage, which is located directly across the street- so close I just walked. Parking garage is very large, plenty of space for everyone. I stayed here 8 years ago when it was new and enjoyed it, but attempted to stay elsewhere to save a little money....had to leave that hotel and come back to the best! Look no further, this is the one!! Can't wait to visit again next summer!

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!!!!
