This beautiful golf course complex is secure, safe and nearly everyone behaves (but, judging by the amount of security they have there, why wouldnt they!!) themselves. Me, my husband and my 2 children went there for 3 weeks and it was lovely. we did consider trying the golf, but after the T'ing off, my husband sarted to get back ache and so we gave up. despite golf being a more mature sport, our children still enjoyed watching the golf ball machine throw out more golf balls when we inserted a dollar. Not only is there a top rated golf course there, but nearly every villa has a pool and there are 2 public pools, one for the people staying in the condos and oen for everyone, there are 2 tennis courts and a play park, not to mention a huge lake that is assuringly safe so no one can fall in. there is a barrier at the gate with armed policemen to make sure no criminals get in which is lovely as you can let your children walk down to the play park on their own (depending on their age) with the peace of mind that your children are safe. There is also a dollar store, a winn-dixie and a walmart just at the entrance of the estate so you can walk to go and get any groceries etc...etc... This complex was luxury and a real experience, I loved it and would love to go again! There is a link to a villa that was extremely good looking and had outstanding views. unfortunately it was fully booked when we went out, but that villa would have been our first choice, thanks

We love this course. we've played it every summer for the last 5 years, at least once. we play a lot so $35.00 pushes our budget, but it's worth it once or twice a year. Before 12noon it is $55.00 in the summer. great course conditions every time we've played it. Awesome course layout and design. This is the best Steve Smyers design that I've played in our area.

This was our third villa holiday at southern dunes. Southern dunes is a beautiful resort and our past two villas have been excellent. this one was awful. Holiday Booked through Thomson's, letting agent hotelbeds. Dirty marks on blinds and carpeted areas. Sofas in lounge in need of replacing, covered in nasty slip covers. Bed linen-towels-crockery all below expected standard.
Worst and most disappointing of all was the pool area. Deck dirty and in need of re-painting. Patio furniture shabby and disgusting. Out of use Jacuzzi attached to pool area full of dirty water. Huge filthy barbecue taking up deck space. Algae growing at side of netting. this bronze category villa was shabby and not ready for letting. Reported some of the faults to the Thomson rep , but other than showing us how to operate the broken blind, nothing was done. This w ill ruin the reputation of Southern Dunes.

We stayed here for 2 weeks. The villas of of a high standard and the golf course is of a high standard and the greens are really nice. The scenery around the course is great and we even seen a small crocodile.

The club house is nice and has good green and chipping practice gardens. The site is only 30 mi s from Disney and other resorts and the local restaurants are cheap. There is also a local Wallmarts and petrol statin of added convenience.
