“We Love Wild Dunes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2009

We recently stayed at Wild Dunes (for the 4th time this year) and had a fabulous time. Weather was great, beach is fantastic (found a ton of sand dollars)...
The staff is fantastic. We recommend Wild Dunes to anyone looking for a quiet Carolina Beach vacation. Things to do if you want to do them, but you don't feel pressured by the kids to do all the commercialized stuff. A true beach vacation.

We stayed at the Boardwalk Inn and enjoyed it. We got champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries for our Anniversary which was nice.
The location is awesome, but we were a bit disappointed that the walls and floors were so thin....staff in the morning in the passages were noisy.
With it being a resort be prepared to pay for all the extras.

We were not told prior to our visit that motorcyclists were not allowed on the property. Usually if motorcycles are not allowed on the property we have found the resort has accommodations for parking and securing your ride. Not here.

Our stay at Wild Dunes exceeded ALL our expectations. The staff at the resort was exceptional. Their kindness, professionalism and knowledge not only of the resort but the surrounding area was first class. We will definitely return and enjoy that "Southern Hospitality" very soon. I would suggest you secure a Green Taxi in advance if coming by plane and use them during your stay if you do not have car access. They are clean, courteous and very reasonable. They were recommended by the resort. Come prepared to have a great time and enjoy true Southern Hospitality and some great food!

I visited Wild Dunes for for nights with a bunch of friends. We were given an excellent deal on two condos in the tennis village. The tennis courts were beautifully maintained and court time was included. Our condo was much nicer than we expected. It had a brand new kitchen, washing machine and some very clean, very nice bathrooms. We ate dinner one night as a group at the Sea Island Grill and it looked like everyone really enjoyed the food (he duck was great). All in all, the place was a fun time. I do have to say that as a group of mid-late-twenty year old guys it appeared that is was a little more of a family spot. There were loads of kids and couples but we seemed to be the only big group of singles there that week in July. It could have just been when we were there though...
As well, we prepaid for our golf. When I got hurt before our round of golf and needed to get a refund because I couldn't play the sales staff was willing to work with me to arrive at an amicable solution. Our salesguy Adrian gave us an incredible deal on everything and I am glad everything worked out in the end.

We just spent 4 nights at the Boardwalk Inn and had a truly wonderful stay. I was immediately pleased by the lack of hard sell in this resort community...unlike so many others that use every opportunity to sell you something. For example, I really appreciated that there was no mini-bar or bottled water with little expensive tags waiting in the room (small bottles of water were delivered nightly to the room and placed bedside at the turn down service). My husband was thrilled to find the free in-room internet (and wireless in lobby). He also enjoyed the excellent free coffee in the lobby in the morning. The ambience was pleasant and elegant, though admittedly the carpet in the entryway of our room a bit run down. When the sink was very slow in draining, the staff was very prompt to remedy, and understanding. We loved that there was no photographer trying take our picture to sell to us later at the fabulous giant beach chair photo spot by the Grand Pavilian. And speaking of the beach, it was very clean and the sand soft. Everyone from the valet, desk staff , wait staff, housekeeping and pool personnel were friendly. Special kudos to Elizabeth at Boardwalk Inn who helped me safely get back my jewelry I accidentally left in the room safe. Overall, this was just an easy place to relax and do as much or little as you want. (Tons of activities if you want...but no pressure). The biggest compliment ought to be the fact that when we got home my husband said to me, "I'd like to go back there." We've traveled many places and this was a first. Thank you Boardwalk Inn and Wild Dunes.

My family just returned from Wild Dunes resort and I can only say positive things. The staff was wonderful, very helpful, and always had a sense of urgency when meeting our needs. We stayed at the Boardwalk Inn and it was very clean. Room service was very prompt. The ambiance of the resort was great, too. The pool was really cool at the Boardwalk Inn, surrounded by palm trees and had a small bridge to swim under. The Grand Pavilion had two pools as well, although we did not swim in either one, and it was nice to hear live musicians in the evening while at the bar. The food was great, too. I have always visited Myrtle Beach, but we have decided to return to the Wild Dunes Resort for all future vacations because nothing in Myrtle Beach can compare. The beach was well kept, not dirty or overcrowded. And, we found some really cool sea shells because they were not picked over. All and all, Wild Dunes is the BEST and I have already and will continue to recommend this resort to everyone.
