“The best. The best. THE BEST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

We loved every minute of our stay. We resided in the sirene Shipwatch condo area. Our condo had an awesome view of the ocean right off of the patio. And the private beach was literally in our backyard. Our condo was clean and well stocked. The seemingly endless hot water in the showers was perfect! My husband really liked the provided bath soap. So much that he would like to order some. Lol. The bedding (mattress/pillows) was ohh so comfortable. Bike riding, swimming pools, and workout sessions are just a few of the amenities that were offered. Grocery stores very near bye for convenience. I honestly didn't want to leave. I can't wait for our next visit to Wild Dunes.

We stayed at the Boardwalk Inn at Wild Dunes in room 406 and loved it. The hotel lobby is elegant with wood floors and comfortable furniture. There is a bike rental close by and easy access to the beach and pools. The only annoying part of the entire trip was that the room key - it was so finicky that it took several attempts to get into the room and a few trips to the front desk to confirm it worked. The elevator is also very slow, but i am not against taking the stairs.

Our room was clean, bright and large. The pillows were not the best, or they could have provided an extra in the room. Breakfast downstairs was delicious, although pricey

I would definitely like to go back and stay with family / extended family.

We have made several vacations at Wild Dunes. This time we stayed at 33 Fairway Oaks. The house had not been occupied is a while and took a few hours for the musty smell to go away but otherwise was a great place to stay. Wild Dunes is a top knock resort. The amenities are great. The staff is well trained and always guest focused.

We stayed at the Boardwalk Inn at Wild Dunes Resort on Isle of Palms for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We stayed June 1st & June 2nd. The staff treats you like you are royalty. It was a very enjoyable time. I had requested a room with a 'nice view' for our Anniversary, and Wild Dunes, you folks were awesome on delivering! The Resort is done up 'Charleston Style'. There is a boardwalk, that you walk from the Boardwalk Inn down the boardwalk to the Grand Pavilion. You can enjoy the ocean breezes from the pavilion and the food was terrific at the Grand Pavilion! From the Boardwalk Inn, looking out, you have to overlook the Charleston Style Village house roofs to see little glimpses of the Ocean, so you are trying to see through the little alleys and down the boardwalk! The pools directly outside the Boardwalk Inn are reserved for adults from 9am to 5pm which is TERRIFIC, as the children get very loud and noisy as noted in the evening hours! Our biggest disappointment was that there were No Hot Tubs at Wild Dunes Resort, but that was our only disappointment. We ate at the Grand Pavilion for lunch and it was super! We had supper at the Lettered Olive, a bow tie pasta with pesto, cream sauce, olives, and chicken. I was not a fan of the particular dish, but my husband said he liked it. This is a unique resort. The grounds are well maintained and it is a beautiful get-a-way! For folks that enjoy gulf, there are some nice courses at this resort! Thank You Wild Dunes for a Great Anniversary Celebration!

Room Tip: Ocean front rooms are the best!

Our family met at Wild Dunes. We have 2 older (24 and 26) daughters and they each brought a boyfriend so we had 6 adults. We stayed in a condo (518B) in the village and it was perfect...2 full bedrooms on the main floor each with a full bathroom off the room. The master, kitchen, dining room and large patio with a great view was on the second floor. There was lots for all of us to do: golf, swimming, exercising, swimming, biking, spa services, beachcombing. It was a few minutes walk to the beach and pools and golf course. We rented a car so went into Charleston for sightseeing and a couple of meals. We had groceries ordered ahead of time so we could eat breakfast and lunch in the condo. Valet service for the car was quick and easy. I would definitely go to Wild Dunes again and highly recommend it!

We enjoyed our two night stay at Wild Dunes enroute from Florida to Michigan in April. Stayed in the main lodge in a wonderful, spacious room in the center of this "everything you need is here" resort. Beach, pool, bars, restaurants, water sports, bike rentals, walking trails, golf, tennis, boat rentals, marina, resort shopping, close proximity to Charleston, etc....gosh, i can't think of anything they don't have available....and, the hospitality, food and service were superb. Even the weather cooperated. We recommend and will return.

We stayed at Seascape this year and yes there were some sand bags on the beach but they also had a new reclimation project going on that really seems to be working. Since it was one of the last condos on the strip it was not crowded. The Condo was clean and had a great view of the beach. The bike ride to the board walk was just 15 min long. My kids 9/6 yrs loved it. Looking forward to going back. I asked the kids if they liked this better then Disney and they said yes, mainly because there is so much they could do rather then waiting in line like you do at Disney. Imagine that they like the beach better then Disney..... Very Cool.

Room Tip: The father away from the Boardwalk Inn the calmer and quiter it is. Boardwalk in is very pricey. G...
