“Awesome long weekend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

My family had a great time. We couldn't ask for a better weekend. The room, staff and water parks were all fabulous! My boys age 3 and 6 had a great time as did I. My word of advice is carry your on BIG pool towels bc their tiny ones aren't ideal when it's winter and you walk outdoor from one tower to the other. Plus you can't take the towels to your room. It's a great trip and we can't wait to go back!

If you like golfing, walks on the beach, shopping and seafood, this is the place. There're broadway style musicals, mini midways and the giantic ferris wheel. Golf that will challenge all skill levels. We enjoyed not one but two Tanger outlet malls.

We went in mid-November. The temperatures were around 20 celsius (68 fahrenheit). The attractions were running but there were very few vacationers, which meant no line ups and this included waking up to a golf course without reservations and teeing off whenever I was ready.

Room Tip: Ask for the room at the end of the hall for 270 degree view.

"Value" and "Location" are 2 of our many attributes here at Dunes Village Resort. We are situated in a quieter, residential part of town, out of the way of all the noise, but close enough to get to quicky. With all that we have to offer, from water parks to year round planned activities to fantastic views in a safe and clean atmosphere, and all at a reasonable price, you can't go wrong.

We appreciate the wonderful 5 star review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay, and hpe you get back down for another visit soon!

My sister and I had a short 2 night stay in Dunes Village resort and we enjoyed. Studio apartment was perfect for two. Outside pools were heated and great to use since ocean was cold in November. Front desk people were polite. I would really recommend it especially for families with kids.

Thank you for choosing Dunes Village Resort for special sister time! There is so much to do here, even in "off" season. The water parks are made up of 30,000 square feet of water slides and attractions, we have 2 restaurants and a Starbucks, our outdoor pools behind the Palms building are heated, and our staff is the best on the beach! We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience, and hope to see you for some more family time soon!

This was a great birthday getaway! I stayed in a deluxe king suite, oceanfront on the 6th floor. The room was spacious and comfortable for me and my fiancée. The ocean view was spectacular...can't beat the rate for this view. The room was peaceful. Other than some minor issues with the bathroom (dusty floor corners, hair on floor, small bugs underneath faucet in bathroom and vanity area; tiles need to be regrouped) the room felt like a home away from home; kitchenette, vanity/dressing area, dining/living room area and balcony. All staff we encountered were courteous, helpful and friendly. Coffee shop was nice. I ate at Admirals once at the breakfast buffet. Can't beat the breakfast price and the buffet was clean and always stocked. I ate at the Captains Cafe twice and each time service was wonderful! The first night my server helped me make my birthday extra special...I received an ice cream sundae and all the servers and other patrons in the restaurant sang happy birthday. The next night the chef greeted and welcomed me. She sent out a bottle of champagne when she found out I was celebrating my birthday. Portions were nice and enjoyed my dinner especially the She crab soup and shrimp platter. I felt like a big kid and enjoyed the indoor indoor watermark...slides and lazy river...whirlpools were relaxing. Enjoyed shopping at the Tanger outlets...resort was a short drive away. It was nice walking out the resort to the beach in November! Overall enjoyed my stay and will return. Thanks for great service and stay Dunes Village Resort!

Room Tip: Palmetto Tower 6th floor oceanfront...great view!

My husband took my son and I on a short 3 night trip to Myrtle Beach for my birthday. We picked Dunes Village for the indoor waterpark for our son to enjoy. We had no idea that this hotel was so big and had so many things to offer. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a lot of fun in the waterpark, however, the chlorine was overbearing and we did not spend long periods of time in the park. The chlorine was so strong it burned our eyes and made it hard to breathe even long after returning to our room and showering. This is one thing that is easy to change or fix. Also there were a lot of unsupervised kids in the park areas....I guess the parents dropped them off to go to the bar?? I just know there were several small kids @7-9 yo playing and climbing on the top of the submarine and slides inappropriately and could have gotten hurt really badly. We had an amazing time and will definitely be coming back again....during off season of course. I could not imagine how jam packed it is during a peek season. This was a very memorable birthday and my husband and I had just as much fun as our son in the park and on the slides, we can't wait to get back down to play.

Room Tip: Oceanfront is always the best! Don't stay over the bars....noisy.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on Dunes Village Resort. We appreciate all of your feedback, and are so happy to hear that your Birthday weekend was such a success!

We appreciate your concerns regarding the safety of the unsupervised children. We will continue to monitor the submarine area with staff and management personell on a more regular basis. We share your concerns for children’s safety and would never like to see anyone get hurt.

The chlorine levels you mentioned is an area we continually address. We check the chemical levels at least twice a day to ensure we are inside the guidelines set forth by the Department of Health. We are adding additional circulation fans to move and clear the air of the chlorine as well. I truly regret your discomfort and assure you we will continue to monitor the area. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention.

We look forward to seeing you and your family back here for some more celebrations and memory making. Hope you get back here soon! See you then!

Could not beat the price for a one bedroom suite with kitchen, washer/dryer and indoor water parks. Water parks were perfect for our family. Not to
large (can keep good eye on kids) and not to small. Room looked to have been recently remodeled. We had an issue with dinner take out from the Captain's Cafe, but the hotel took care of it promptly. Would recommend Dunes Village if you are visiting MB and its to cold for beach swimming. Location is great...close to major MB attractions.
