“Great place for families!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2011

This was our 3rd year back to Dunes Village Resort (August 14-21st). This resort is great for families with small children as there is two indoor pools w/a lazy river and slides. There are also a lot of activities for older children to do with staff as they organize events daily.

The ocean access is 5 minutes away and very convenient.

As far as the room itself, we had no issues with the cleanliness of the room or the size of the room. Being that we book the room with multiple family members coming (typically a 3-4 bedroom condo), we do not request housekeeping services daily. The housekeeping staff came every day and we took fresh towels.

The resort is very busy with lots of families there. If you're looking for a quiet, peaceful environment, this is not the hotel for you - LOL! With that said, it is a GREAT place to go w/families. I love it and will be back again next August for the 4th trip.

Room Tip: Book your room in December when they do 30% off rooms. It's the only time of year they run the...

We are from Raleigh, NC and have a very busy 5 year old that likes to be entertained. We have stayed in many different resorts in Myrtle Beach throughout the years. Dunes Village Resort was by far our favorite resort for families. I would HIGHLY recommend this resort. The entire staff from the guest services, to the bell man, to the front desk, all of the restaurants, the kids club staff were awesome!!! They were the most friendly, efficient, professional staff I have ever met at a resort. If you have small children, this is the place for you. The indoor water slides, the pools and most of all all the activities are awesome!! Everyday the staff planned activities to keep kids entertained...from face painting, balloon tossing, limbo contests, outdoor movies by the beach...A++++. The food in both restaurants for dinner and breakfast were fabulous and prices were fair and reasonable. If fact, we only left the resort 3 nights out of 6 to go into town. Rooms were clean and beautiful. Elevators were fast and entire resort was in pristine condition. One thing I have to say though....the internet connection was horrible. They use ethernet, which is older technology. Very slow, if you can get connected at all. Everything else was perfect!!! We will be back again.....If you are looking for a "family" vacation and you have kids....this is it!! If you want a romantic, quite vacation...not so much. WE LOVED IT AND WILL RECOMMEND TO OUR FRIENDS!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the OceanFront Studio - I loved it; however, if you have children that are light sleepe...

We have so much to do here at Dunes VIllage Resort, I bet your busy 5 year old was exhausted by the end of each day. There are planned activites every day, and the water park has so much to offer - ping pong tables, pool tables, foos ball tables, checkers and chess, as well as water slides and pools. There is something for every age here.

Thank you for mentioning our staff. Everyone here at Dunes Village Resort has the same goal - to ensure that the guests enjoy their stay. It appears we were successful with you and your family. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.

Thank you for your wonderful review of Dunes Village Resort. We are so glad you loved everything we have to offer. Families with children are definitely happy they chose this resort, with all the fun things to do here. Did you know that we have planned activities all year long? And our Water Parks are nice and warm in the winter, and airy and cool in the summer.

We hope you get back here real soon!

We have visited Dunes Village every year in March for the past three years now. We usually go to the mtns in Sept. but the family has agreed to go back to Dunes Village! YAY!! We may be bringing friends with us. We have suggested this resort to many friends and none have been disappointed. We love Dunes Village. Staff are very friendly, rooms are clean, and the breakfast buffett is very yummy. Our girls love making their own waffles! Our girls are 5 yrs apart so it is nice to have two diff. water parks just right for each of them. Only complaint is we wish there was an indoor walkway between the towers for those chilly late night adventures out! Other than that we look forward to March every yr. and Sept. this year!!

Room Tip: If you have kids the one bedroom suite is nice and the kids love their wall bed. The kitchen is very...

Went there with my 12 year old daughter and a friend of hers. Thought I might get lucky and that they would enjoy some of the water park at the hotel. They loved it! I figured the would play for an hour and then want to go somewhere else. The didn't. I had to hunt them down after a few hours. I also enjoyed live music by the pool and the cabana bar was nice as well. It was very clean and the girl at the desk was very friendly! Had a great stay all together

We are so glad you had such a great stay here at Dunes Village Resort. We are so glad your daughter and her friend found so much to keep them occupied. But that is not a hard thing to do here, since we have so much to offer. Volleyball, Mini-golf, planned crafts and games, a magic show, movie night, water parks.....I could go on and on. We are glad you had time to sit back and enjoy the music also.

We have said it numerous times, but I will say it again and again; Our staff is top-notch. They are always helpful and very friendly.

We cannot wait to have you back here. See you soon!

We just got back from our week vacation at Dunes Village. Half way through our stay it became so incredibly busy it was too much.

Pros: Room was spacious and somewhat well equipped (except for kitchen - couldn't really cook meals with what was provided), water attractions were awesome when you could enjoy them, proximity to beach was great.

Cons: Way too busy at pools, waterslides, etc. and no checking of required wristbands. As a matter of fact there were more people there without wristbands than with. By the end of the week it was so busy we had to wait 10 minutes for an elevator to get up to our room. Room was dirty when we checked in and the couch and chairs were all covered in stains...it was gross.

Bottom line, we made the best of it BUT we checked out a day early.
