Forest Dunes Resort
Ranked #49 of 208 Hotels in Myrtle Beach
Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I stayed here last June for our honeymoon. He had never stayed here before, but I had. I love it! We stayed in the one bedroom oceanfront condo on the 5th (I think) floor and it was beautiful! I believe it had been recently redone but it was very nice, quiet and clean. The bed was very comfortable and it was decorated really pretty. The front desk staff were extremely friendly as well as the housekeeping staff! I travel frequently and I have never encountered a more helpful and friendly housekeeping staff as I did here at Forest Dunes. We're looking forward to returning!

Rooms were stunning! Beds were very comfy. Check in was a disaster. Due to coming in late, we were informed we needed to call security to let us in. Upon arrival, the phone number for security was no longer in service. After waiting for a significant amount of time, the security guard walked by and was able to let us in. He also informed me that someone else mentioned the number didn't work. Very frustrating after a long and stressful drive.

Room Tip: Don't check in after midnight!

We stayed here on 04/12/13-04/14/13 we stayed in the three bedroom condo on the 17th floor. When we walked in the room it was a musty smell, the beds where hard and a little uncomfortable but other than that it was okay. The so call game room had two machines which both where broken. The indoor and outdoor pools where okay. Then it came time for checkout when the manager pulls me to the office to say the security caught some one on my balcony smoking and we had to pay them $200. First off if they where smoking it probaly would have made the condo smell better, also $200 hundred dollars was highway robbery. So please take your family someone else there are so many different places on the strip that are much nicer.

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay. All guests are informed in advance that Forest Dunes is a completely smoke free resort. We also inform our guests that there is a $200 fine for smoking violations. Many guests choose Forest Dunes because of the smoke free environment. These guests, as well as our condo owners, expect us to enforce the policy. We are sorry you had this experience as Vacation Myrtle Beach offers many properties that permit smoking on property. We would have gladly referred you to another property had we known our smoke free policy was not right for you. We wish you the best in your future travels.

Love the rooms! They are roomy, clean, and comfortable! Slept great! The Kitchen was well laid out, plenty of room. We had a great view. The shower head needed more power, but other than that, we truly had a great and wonderfully relaxing time. We have sent other friends and relatives to this resort and they have all enjoyed their stay here. We will be back before the year is out!

At check in, the front desk was very informative. The housekeepers were very nice. Room was very clean. The manager checked us out and he was very nice.
The view from the condo we had was unbeatable. The grill in the resort had great food and a great view. The hot tub and lazy river were very clean and relaxing. We will probably be repeat guests.

Room Tip: we were on the sixth floor and if we had been any lower, I don't think the view would have been...

We booked online. We enjoyed our 4 night visit theat ended on 4/26/13. In unit 610 we enoyed the terrific beach and ocean view from both the bedroom and living room.
Both has sliding glass doors that opened on to a long balcony. The bed was good and we slept great. The unit was clean and comfortable. There is a wall mounted flat screen in the LR and an older one in the BR. Lighting in the LR could be improved with an additional lamp. We liked the location of this complex. There are a few other condo complexes and many single family homes. The lazy river and hot tub are located in a covered area and it is a little brisk coming from them on cool days and nights. One day we ate from the onsite restaurant and my burger was superior.

Room Tip: 610 was an excellent unit for us. The bedroom does back up to two elevator shafts. There was a sli...

We have been staying at Forest Dunes for probably 10 years. We love the layout of the rooms. This particular visit was a terrible bed. The owners had put a piece of foam over the mattress and it was not goo for sleeping. Other than that everything else was gret at always. I will just request a different room on my next visit.
