15 years ago, I stayed at Forest Dunes every summer and I loved it. These past years I've been going to a different more secluded area than Myrtle Beach since I have a young child. This year my family decided to stay in Myrtle Beach, so of course I wanted to stay at Forest Dunes where I had created a ton of great memories as a child. Unforunately, our stay was not up to par.
The pictures on the website are of the best rooms but not every room is like this. We visited family in a different room and it looked like the pictures, ours did not. I'm pretty sure the carpet we had is the exact same carpet from the 1980's. The staff is friendly and the location is great!! The pools, lazy river, hot tub, and small bar is nice.
But the room is horrible. There was mold on the shower curtain (which they replaced), I didn't want to walk barefoot on the carpet because it felt sticky, the stove was from 1960's, their are the exact same cabinets from the earlier 1990's when I used to stay there, the room smelled old and like mildew.
I believe the mixed reviews are from the different rooms available. If you get a 1 bedroom, you could end up with something very nice or something moldy and outdated. It's all about which room you end up with but no matter where room you end up with, you pay the same price.
If you chose to stay there, good luck. We will not be returning.
