We have stayed here more than 16 times in the past 10 years. It is a quiet and comfortable to relax and enjoy the ocean and the outdoors. The staff is great and the rooms are clean, bright and affordable. We are planning on returning again and again.

Room Tip: If you can get a view room above the 5th floor

The stay was great. The room not so much. The owner of the room we stayed in really should update and fix a lot of thing. Cabinets were broken, and smelled like mildew. Garbage disposal was broken the first night we were there and the sink was leaking. The dresser drawers were broken. Dishes were dirty when we got there.
That was our second time stayed at forest dunes. Our first time was phenomenal. We loved our OF room and had no problems at all. This second time was rougher but overall, it's still a great hotel and the staff is wonderful.

Thank you for your great overall comments about our staff and resort. We are sorry you were not as happy with this condo compared to your last stay. This condo was recently updated with new carpet and was newly painted. In addition, all of our Ocean Front condos, including this one, were updated this past winter with new sliding glass doors, new balcony rails, and new balcony flooring, walls and ceilings. We’ve received many good comments about this condo since all of these improvements were made, so we thought this would be a good condo for you. Of course all the updates already made were very expensive, but we still see many of our condo owners spending more to reface or replace older kitchen and bath cabinetry. Thanks for letting us know what is important for you to feel comfortable in your vacation condo. This will help us accommodate you better in the future. We really appreciate you and your feedback, and look forward to another opportunity to serve you again.

We've been staying here for over 20 years! We first came on our honeymoon and have loved our getaways to Forest Dunes ever since! The staff is always super nice and helpful! The rooms are individually decorated so you never know what color palate will await you but it's always a neat experience! The rooms we stay in (ocean view) are 750 square feet with 1 1/2 baths which is a rare find for the price in Myrtle Beach! I recommend Forest Dunes to all beach goers!!

We stayed in a 3 bedroom suite. The kids love it. We were in room (1604) Needs some major repairs. Usually stay in (1704) which I love and will request at my next visit. I love the location because it is quite and the sound of the ocean is so calming. The rooms are clean and I love the view. The playground is great for the kids when they get tired of the water. Hope to go again very soon.

Room Tip: The 3 BR suites are great for large families.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom OV unit (1504) that was being remodeled. The unit was somewhat run down, but sufficient for a weekend stay. The staff was very nice and the location was great. My husband and I had our daughter, son-in-law and grandson there and the size of the unit was just right. We were somewhat concerned that our 2 year old grandson could get onto the balcony since the sliding door in the bedroom would not lock. The vertical rails on the balcony were far enough apart that he could have slipped through them. Since there were 4 adults to keep an eye on him it never became an issue, but it was still a concern. The unit was clean and the view was fabulous. The area was nice with good beach access and a great little playground just about a block up from the facility.

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay. We've received many great comments about the condo you stayed in (1504), but we realize we have many different tastes and expectations to satisfy. Fortunately Forest Dunes Resort features many different tastefully decorated condos. In the future, if you are not impressed with the condo we assign you we would be happy to show you our other available inventory for you to choose from before moving in. Thank you for reporting the lock that broke on the sliding door as we were able to make a quick repair. We are glad you appreciated the size of our condo as Forest Dunes Resort features very spacious condos campared to our competition. We are also happy you appreciated our staff, cleanliness, great location and views. All of these make Forest Dunes Resort a great place to vacation. We really appreciate you and hope we have the opportunity to serve you again in the future.

Always stay here, year round! It's in the residential section of the beach so it's very quiet. The staff there are always Di friendly & helpful. Parking is great compared to elsewhere-only problem we have Is oversized vehicle parking but they always make arrangements for us. The rooms are the biggest & best value for your money! Great for families, couples, or girls getaways.

Thanks for your great comments about Forest Dunes Resort. We always strive to be friendly & helpful - it usually comes easy because we all enjoy what we do. We really enjoy all our great guests like you. Parking can be tight in Myrtle Beach, but not at Forest Dunes Resort. Similarly, rooms in Myrtle Beach can be small, but not at Forest Dunes Resort. Forest Dunes rooms are all full size condos with spacious living rooms, kitchens, and separate bedrooms. Our guests love the separate bedrooms as many facilities combine the bedroom with the living area. Thanks again for choosing Forest Dunes - we really appreciate you and look forward to your next visit!
