My husband and I stay every year for our anniversary. This year was our 22nd anniversary. It is great as usual. The rooms are very updated, clean and comfortable. The staff is always very polite and helpful. It is not very often that we get away without our children but we definitely look forward to this weekend getaway every year. Absolutely is top notch. We would not consider staying any where else for our anniversary getaway. We love this place !!

Room Tip: If you can we always get a room in Harbor tower that overlooks the marina and pool area. The yachts...

We booked a Mediterranean Club Suite for a two night visit to Myrtle Beach. We asked for an early check-in when booking and we were told they couldn't promise it but would they would try to accomodate us. We arrived around 11 AM and our room wasn't ready. We were offered a room on the first floor but declined that and decided we would wait for a room a little higher. The desk person was a very nice woman I believe her name was Joanne and she was actually from the area near our home. She took our cell number and gave us some suggestions on things to see while we waited for the room. We got the call at 1:45 PM that the room was ready. Check-in was a breeze, there were no others waiting at the time and the hotel seemed quiet.

Upon entering our room(#5502) immediately to the left was a kitchen with a full size refrigerator, stove top with an oven and a microwave. A full size coffee pot and supplies were also provided. Just past the kitchen was a closet with two bath robes and several hangers. Just past the closet was a huge bathroom with a seperate tub and shower, a double sink and large mirror. Also in the bathroom was another closet with shelves. We asked for extra towels and they were waiting for us as requested. The next part of the room was the bedroom which was fully opened to the sitting room. We had a king sized bed, there were four pillows on the bed. The mattress was a little bit on the hard side but we had no problem sleeping on it. There was a flat screen TV in a cabinet. The TV was on the small side, maybe 26 inches, and even though it was a high def flat screen TV it was hooked up to the cable box by a coax cable so the picture quality was not high def. There were many channels available including music channels. A small safe was on the bottom shelf of this cabinent.

The sitting area had a small sofa and two chairs as well as a large coffee table. There was a fireplace in the sitting area but there were no instructions on how to use it and I tried to start it but couldn't and decided not to bother calling the desk to find out if it was functional. Beyond this area was a slider door to the patio. The patio had two wicker chairs and and a small round table. The patio is very private and had a nice view of the waterway and a golf course across from the waterway.

Valet service was excellent, we never had to wait a second for our car after calling for it. The valets were very friendly as well as efficent.

We only ate at the restaurant Waterscapes on site once for breakfast. Service was very slow, considering at the time we were the only patrons that seemed odd. The food was very good but a little expensive.

You have the choice to opt out of maid service if you want and if you do you get a coupon for each day you opt out good for $5 off at the restaurant or their pub Reflections.

They also have a business center where you can print your boading passes for your flight. We didn't use their indoor pool or other facilities.

The property is located within sight of the Carolina Opry, Ruth Chris restaurant and a hospital and is just off route 17.

We found everyone to be friendly, the property was clean and the room was pretty much as advertised. We would consider this location for future visits and recommend it to others who don't require a beach front property.

Beautiful resort hotel; spacious rooms, elegantly appointed, even the studio suite, which is where we started. Very noisy neighbors caused us to request a room change. Were upgraded to a VERY QUIET, luxurious 2 BR/2BA suite at no additional cost to us. Certain members of the staff really go above and beyond to fix problems, particularly the front desk staff that was on duty the nights of 11/3/12 and 11/4/12 (can't remember their names). What could have been a disastrous anniversary vacation turned into one of the best vacations we've had in Myrtle Beach.

Room Tip: Beware of studio suites with adjoining doors. Unless you plan to stay in both sides, you will hear E...

The room was wonderful and the bed was outstanding. It was surprising that we were so close to all the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach, yet felt as if we were in the country. The views of the marina were beautiful.

The Marina Inn at Grande Dunes was a pleasant stay. My kids had an awesome time in the indoor pool and hot tub that stays open 24 hours. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. I reccommend this place for anyone looking to stay at Myrtle Beach.

I would strongly recommend retiring here for your vacation stay.The facilities were well kept. The view from the balcony was nice. Overlooking the waterway. Located beside Ruth CHris's Steakhouse and only a few miles from shopping and relaxing on the beach. Our suite had full size kitchen, dinette, living room with fire place, 2 bedrooms and baths.

Room Tip: Would be a wonderful place for a traveling family. Lots of room and very comfortable.

I stay at Marina Inn for a weekend for a Teachers workshop. We were in a 3 bedroom suite which should have been perfect ,but we only had a king bed per room. That meant that my children and I had to share a bed. This was not what we were told when we made the reservations. We had twelve people in our room, so that meant some one had to sleep on the sleeper sofa and that is not sleeping that is misery. We were suppose to have 4 queens and 1 king, which would have been perfect. The beds were not comfortable. We had 4 bathrooms which were great. Kitchen was great, but the dishwasher leaked on the floor when we ran it. For that size unit we should have had more dishes. The furinture was not comfortable. I expected the more sofas and 8 person dining table. My children love the pool and hot tub, but were disappointed with the quality of equipment in the fitness room. My children run every day and workout. The ping pong table and paddles were cheap quality, but it was the only thing for teenagers to do. This could be a great resort for families if the property put in basket ball quarters, pool tables, foose ball tables and other amenities. For the price I would rather stay on the beach and pay more and see the ocean. The food was great and the staff was friendly. The property was clean. I guess I expected to much.

Room Tip: Request how many beds you need and ask about the dining table size if you are going to cook
