We stayed here for a week recently and found the overall facility to just be ok. The condo we stayed in was fantastic and truly did not fit in this building. I say this because I got to see some of the others while we were there and we definitely had the nicest place out of all the ones I saw. If we would have one of the other condos I saw I am not sure I would have too many positive things to say about Forest Dunes. The reason why is while the facility is pretty clean and there always seems to be someone doing some kind of maintenance the complex is just a little long in the tooth. It appears that it could definitely use a power washing, a coat of paint, some updating, and new carpeting in the common areas throughout. Additionally the elevators here are literally the slowest I have seen anywhere. I do not know the cause of this, but on more than one occasion I waited more than 10 minutes for an elevator. Another interesting thing is I don't think there are enough parking spots for all the cars when they are full. At least it appeared this way on the evening of July 4th. We got back kind of late and the garage had no spots available in it leaving us to "make" a spot. The other thing I would add is there was some horrible sewer smell in the lobby area near the entrance to the indoor pool while we there. It persisted for at least 3 days and was not addressed by the time we left. Considering the pungency of the smell I cannot imagine onsite management was not aware of it. The other thing that was a little disappointing was the general lack of amenities at this facility. I have not been to Myrtle Beach in forever and did not realize that so many of the other places have multiple pools, children's play areas with water features, and water slides. Forest Dune only has one small pool, a small toddlers pool, and a smallish lazy river. Personally I would not stay here again. It's not a horrible place, but as my title says much better can be found for the same money.
