“Looking for a respite from winter..”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

Wild dunes provided just what I needed. Wife and I got away from the snow and ice in the northeast for a few days. The resort was very clean and well cared for. A short pleasant walk to the beach. Although its off season now we had no problem finding what we needed off the resort such as dining. The upside of off season was the price of the room. We stayed in the village... The room was well done and large w/ 12' plus ceilings with a good view from the 5th floor.. Will go back for SURE!

The only complaint my husband and I had was that the couch in the living room area was too small & hard. Other than that, We loved the resort area. We would stay again. The area is very beautiful and colorful. Gorgeous.

What a great deal... we had a two bed and two bath condo that was on the beach for under $300 a night. Can't beat that deal near Charleston. It was really quiet and gated. Really enjoyed our stay and will be back for sure. If you don't need two rooms, try the hotel they have on site that is really reasonable in price. Even the non beach front condos and homes are no more than a two minute walk to the beach.

Stayed November 2013, traveled with friends

I can't say enough about our stay at the Villa at Seagrove 10D and the entire Wild Dunes community.

Seagrove has the best beach on the island, the three bedoom ocean front Villa met and exceeded my expectations

Room Tip: This location is perfect, it is close to the action but far enough that you have quiet and privacy

The conference meal was the best We have had in the 25 + years of attending conferences.
The rooms were nice & the staff were outstanding. I hope our origination uses this place again.
the service for the bags and car were very good.

We stayed at Lagoon Villas for the New Year 2014. I ready several wonderful reviews and was excited for our first stay at Wild Dunes. The property was run down. The door handles were loose and actually fell off. There was no hot water in one of the two bathrooms. The staff was very friendly and yes they tried to repair the problems. The hot water was not able to be fixed easily. Yes the property as in landscaping is meticulous. I will not be returning the Wild Dunes nor recommend any of our friends or family to vacation there.

Room Tip: Try to make reservations elsewhere.

Dear Gasiya L,
Thank you for taking the time to share your review. I am terribly sorry to hear that your recent stay did not live up to your expectations and that you experienced frustration on more than one occasion. The condition of your rental unit and the maintenance issues you encountered were completely unacceptable. And for that, I am truly sorry. This is certainly not indicative of the experience we aim to provide our guests, no matter what accommodation they stay in. However, we do appreciate your feedback as it is highly valuable to us for understanding and improving moving forward. In the new year, we have recently restructured our property management team to provide better service and more frequent upkeep of all rental accommodations. Please know that I am sharing your feedback with this team as well as our leadership team so that we may ensure better quality control of this specific unit and across the property. Thank you again for your feedback.

Regards,
Frank Fredericks
Managing Director

About 10 years ago we stated going to Wild Dunes. Then stopped because everyone we knew went to offer beach places. Then we came back and thought to oursevles why on earth did we EVER listen to those other people. IOP has everything you could want. Kids activities biking swiming and Charleston is just 5 miles away.... (tip...take the water taxi from patriots point. You can bring your bikes and it is cheaper then paying for parking in Charletson) Yes, there is tennis and golf but there also is night time walks on the beach to check out the turtles and deer and movies and music on the green almost every night. Yes the food is questionable but if you have a condo you can grill dinner yourself. There is so much more to look into there is not enought time to write it all down. Since we decided this is the only place for our beach vacations every year we have been going for the past 5 years and look forward to it every year.

Room Tip: Book a Condo....Save money
