“Fantastic family hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

We visited Myrtle Beach for the first time with our five children. We stayed down the road at a lesser hotel and enjoyed ourselves fine then came to the Dunes for an unplanned extra night... Wow! We wish we had known about it ahead of time and stayed here the whole time! The room is fantastic! Nice and updated, huge kitchen, beautiful view. Couldn't get any better! The water park was an awesome bonus!! Definitely aimed at children but that's what we needed! Staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back!

We had a fantastic time this week at The Dunes. Our kids loved both water parks as well as the beach. The staff at the outdoor Tiki bar were excellent, we had appetizers there every afternoon by the pool. We will be returning!

Room Tip: Ocean front or view are both worth it!

Thank you for taking the time to share your 5 star review of Dunes Village Resort. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed everything so much. The Tiki Bark is a nice way to continue the outdoor atmosphere without being in the direct sunlight. Cocktails, appetizers, and even a full meal can be gotten from there, and the team that works in there are always full of fun!

We hope to see you back here again soon! Thanks again for sharing your story!

My husband and I got married April 26th, 2014. I had never been to any beach before and he wanted to take me to one for our honeymoon so he decided on Myrtle Beach, SC. I asked my friends on Facebook for a good place to stay at and a few of them said they had stayed at Dunes Village and loved it. I checked into DVR and a couple of other recommended places there and decided based on reviews through BookIt etc. to stay at the Dunes since it was only 75 per night usually 115 for a deluxe king oceanview room with access to both resorts water parks that included 4 water slides. I booked our reservations and paid in full through BookIt and we sat out for our honeymoon. We arrived at the Dunes and checked in with no problems and the staff were all very helpful, friendly, and welcoming. It was very quick and easy to check in. The Dunes is very clean and nice. It was a very pleasant experience all around our entire stay here. It was quiet and very family oriented. Not at all the party place of teen hang out as I thought the beach was in general. The Captains restaurant in the resort has great food at reasonable prices. The breakfast buffet is only 10.95 per person with drinks included and has everything for breakfast that is of very good quality. Nothing like I have ever gotten with a continental breakfast at other hotels. We absolutely have no complaints with this place and will be back very soon to stay with them any time we go to Myrtle Beach. The parking deck is gated and makes you feel safe leaving your car there. The view of the ocean is breathtaking and is very close to the ocean, which makes for quick access for a night walk or whatever. The water park is much more than we thought for adults and kids and has several pools and hot tubs inside and out. There are daily activities for the kids to do, which is very kind of the resort to do. The room was much more than what we expected and spacious. There are pool tables and ping pong tables that are free which surprised us as most take quarters. This resort is packed and you don't have to leave it if you don't want to as it has everything. It is close to the strip if you wanna go and to Boardwalk at the beach, but is away from the night life, which was a plus for us as we wanted peace and quiet time with each other.

Room Tip: The deluxe king oceanfront suite on the 4th floor was quiet even though the exercise room is on the...

Great location and kids had a great time at the indoor water park. Friendly staff. Booked directly through the hotel and was given a room right beside ice machine and elevators, so the myth that you get better rooms if you go directly thru the hotel is not true with this one. Room was spacious and nice overall, but could use a thorough cleaning. Found hair on bathroom wall, a penny and other small trash on floor, and baseboards in bathroom were filthy with mold in corners. Would have liked Tiki bar to stay open past 7.

Room Tip: Ask for Palm Tower if you have older kids bc that is where the bigger slides are.

Room location is really just a luck of the draw scenario.

Next time you come, place your request, and we will try hard to meet your desires. Sometimes it is not possible, but we will truly make every attempt. We just want you to enjoy your time with us.

We look forward to seeinig you back here again. Thanks again for the review.

This was our first time to Dunes Village. It was WONDERFUL! The room was even better than what we were expecting. We had the breakfast buffet one morning. The omlets were probably the best we have ever had. Melisa was our server and was extrememly friendly. Her personality/demeanor with our son was fabulous. We went back a couple of mornings later and were hoping to get her again she was so good.

The pool area in the Palmetto building was so much better for our son than the water slides located at the other building. The children's activities each day were great as well.

The only negative thing we can say right now about it is the cafe open for lunch and dinner is on the expensive side. The food is GREAT but still a little too pricey.

Room Tip: If you have children and are going to spend time at the indoor water park, we highly recommend stayi...

We stayed here for an entire week at the end of April. We got a king room that had a couch, vanity area with sink, small kitchen, and bathroom. This was the perfect room for us as we were having a week long getaway just husband and wife. The maid service was excellent. The shower was good. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the kitchen had good started items for a small kitchen. Coffee shop in hotel was great. Staff was extremely friendly. Always stay here this week in April and glad we chose it again.
