“wow what a vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2010

From the moment we arrived at the resort to the moment we left the resort we were overwhelmed by its beauty and comfort. You wake up in the morning and drink your coffee on the balcony facing the ocean. During the day you can spend your time on the ocean, outdoor heated pool or indoor waterpark. In the evening the seagulls will hover over the balcony (only if your kids insist on feeding them) and you can get very close up pictures of them in flight.
The staff was amazingly friendly and willing to assist with every need. Their knowledge of the area and things for families to do was very helpful.

Ok last year we visited some family members who stayed at the Dunes and thought what a lovely place, a nice 3BR condo that looked great and a wonderful pool/water park area. NOT!!! So just for a lil get away we decide to ride down this weekend and stay at the Dunes, thank GOD we only stayed one night because 2 or more and I would have showed out in that crazy place. #1 Its the dumbest thing to put parking across the street, and you have to remember the damn parking card thing, which is a hassle. #2 Valet Parking is a total JOKE and when complained about all they say is oh well we have 495 guests and ONE, yes ONE attendant per TOWER!! #3 The waterpark half way works. Slides are ice cold which are not kid friendly, they don't bother to let you know until you've taken a toddler allllll the way up a sprial staircase that they are too short!! #4Good luck with the 3pm check in, they will BS you and say its not ready and then give you attitude when you request a late check out . We stayed here because its not all that warm out yet and we thought our toddler would enjoy this place. We should have stuck with the Grand Atlantic like we always do! If the non-english speaking maids wouldn't worry so much about dumb towel swans and ruffle tissue paper and crap maybe they could remember things like COFFEE and more than 1 large towel!!! The room was teeny tiny and lets be real, why have a jacuzzi if only 1 person can comfortably fit in it???? Our toddler enjoyed it more than we did! There was a dining table in there but the space was so tiny the 4 chars couldnt go with it, only 2 could, and the other two were along the wall. The garbage disposal didn't work and the dryer only half way dried. The one GOOD thing I can say is the bed was awesome, I laid down and slept the whole night thru, its was soft and comfy. (but after reading other reviews I hope there weren't any bed bugs or fleas, YUCK!) Also I did not specify smoking or non, but I thought all motels now were non-smoking, but nope not the Dookie Dunes, nothing like walking out on the balcony and getting a lung full of cancer for yourself or your toddler!! dis-gust-ing!!! This place was utterly awful and is one of the priciest places at Myrtle, and also its not near anything!! You have to drive a lil ways to get to any shops or restaurants. its a joke do not waste your money here, do your research and find a better place. They are rude here and do not deserve your $$!!

Great place for a family outing. Indoor water park and the beach. Loved the ocean front room. Heated pool and lazy river outside. The Dunes Resort had everything we needed. I would recommend this resort to anyone with children, or a romantic get-a-way for two.

My family was there for a long weekend. I have 3 children. 17 year old boy, 14 year old girl and a 7 year old girl. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, angled condo. Our room was gorgeous. The views were spectacular and it was very clean.

Because of the different ages of my children, finding a resort that meets all of our needs can be challenging. Dunes definitely fit the bill. There was plenty for all of us, even on the one rainy day.

We had the breakfast buffet in the Admirals restaurant and it was one of the best I've ever had. Perfectly prepared and plenty of everything. The staff in the restaurant were outstanding.

We didn't want to go home and now we are trying to figure out when we can go back again.

We just returned from a great week in Myrtle Beach. We selected the Dunes village because of the reviews it received on this site, and it didn't disappoint! Amenities were clean, kid friendly and accessible. Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The staff were helpful, polite and friendly. We will be returning again next year!

We decided to follow our daughter college team to Myrtle Beach but not stay with them. The Dunes Village resort was like a dream come true for us. The facility is new and clean. We got an Ocean front king. The room was super. We could watch the ocean from the bed. The kitchenette was clean and new. Nice to have coffee and drinks without going out. The bathroom was cleam a spacious. Haing a seperate vanity outside of the bathroom made the morning routine much easier as we both had room. The baclony was nice, really liked having a couple of chairs out there. The parking was the best, easy, well lighted and secure. We didn't use the waterparks but they looked very nice. While there were a lot of people it was quiet. The Staff really helped us with everything. The rounded up tickets and proply sent maintanence when the hotwater was slow in coming. Over all this was likely the best week we've had in years. We visited some of the other resorts while we were there and this was far better than most. Also a quiet and safe neighborhood.

Great rooms with kitchens, waterpark, nice staff - all right on the beach a few miles away from the Myrtle Beach "strip."
