“A great family vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

Seven days of fun. Two grandparents with 2 families including five grandchildren(11-4). Lots of outdoor activities to keep everyone busy. The water park and pools were awesome.A lot of choices to keep everyone happy. Top floor called the penthouse.. no reason for that, no different than the other floors. Restaurants not too far away. Grocery store 5 minutes away.Beach was beautiful. Liked the option of chairs on the grass with tables and umbrellas.Party pool and DJ at the Palmetto Tower.Would return in the future.

Room Tip: All rooms are ocean front or ocean angle.

Shared a three bedroom condo in June with another family. A little tight on common area space but the rooms were a good size. Plenty of activities for the kids and both waterparks and on site mini golf were a nice transition from the beach. The tiki bar and music were a welcome addition as well for the adults. Resort is aging but seems to be kept up well and very popular. Also nice to be away from typical Myrtle shopping scene but close enough to drive to favorite spots (broadway on beach etc...). Parking was across street but not that big of a deal unless you are coming and going all day long.

Room Tip: Make sure you understand the exact location of your condo. Ours indicated ocean view but really had...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

The pros was only that our room was very roomy. The cons was that it was very busy and very packed with guests. The end of March is not a good time to come here. We got confused by the towers and didn't get the request for a higher floor. We were given a bottom floor room so our oceanfront view was not great at all. We were up close and personal with guests going to the pool and walking outside from our balcony. We didn't care much for the décor in the room, it needs a change. Other than that, our stay was "ok" but we will not be coming back.

Room Tip: To get a excellent view of the ocean, try your best to get a room on a high floor and make sure they...

Our trip to Dunes was great. Our room was beautiful on the 12th floor overlooking the ocean. My son loved the water park and the food at the restaurants was great. We will definitely be coming back here.

Our son-in-law booked Dunes Village Resort for the 6 of us- our daughter and son-in-law, their 2 boys ages 3 1/2 and 10 months, and my husband and me (Grandpa and Grandma). We had a 3 bedroom unit. We were on the 11th floor, with an angled ocean view. The angled view gave us great views of the ocean, and areas of Myrtle Beach south of us. We had those views from our balcony. Our 10 month old grandson wakes up one or 2 times each night, but we seldom heard him. We had a bedroom in the front of the unit, and our daughter and her family had 2 bedrooms in the back. We also couldn't hear noises from anyone else's hotel unit. The beach was lovely, but it was very hot- 90's. We really enjoyed the various indoor and outdoor pools, lazy rivers, slides, etc. We ordered food from one of the hotel restaurants. It was good and fairly priced. I really recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms above the 6th floor have better views.

My family really enjoyed our stay. Room was clean and food was great! Staff was friendly and all went well. We knew it was going to rain a little so we picked this hotel with the indoor water park and it was a hit with the kids. We will be staying at this resort again soon.

Indoor water parks are ideal when you have questionable weather, and Dunes Village Resort delivers fully with regard to covered entertainment. We have 30,000 square feet of water features that help you get out of the sun for a bit while still having things to keep the family entertained.

We are so happy to hear that your vacation was a success, and we hope to help you and your family make more memories sometime soon! Thanks for sharing your 5 star Dunes Village Resort experience.
