The location is perfect on the beach and that's where it ends! We had to beg for towels and there was always another reason as to why they didn't have any. The ice machine on our floor was broken for the entire week!!! The lobby had tiles missing. The elevators did not always work properly. The place could be nice if they just did regular maintenance every day. The room was a nice size, however, the maids did not always do a great job cleaning. It is definitely run down and needs some TLC!!!! It is close to stores, restaurants, etc.

If you're a fan of 1980's decor, peeling exterior paint on the building and pool area, large cracks on the pool deck, outside signs that are in several different font styles, an indoor pool which your kids will resemble coal miners because the floors are so dirty, horribly slow elevators.....if that is what you "enjoy" on a vacation, then Sands Resorts Ocean Dunes is just the place for you.

The Rawcliffe Companies spare no expense in maintaining a lousy corporate owned place. take a look in the bathrooms with the mold on the mirrors on the first floor and you'll be welcomed "in style"

1980 was a good time for some things, but this place has gotta get with the times. The towers off the beach far better since they are owned by individual owners. Beach front, bad news.

Stayed here Labor Day Weekend 2013 and the room was filthy. Even though they had new countertops on dresser and kitchenette, they neglected to make anything else nicer. The ceilings were dirty all the way down to the floors. I know they don't usually shampoo carpets frequently, but I don't think they've ever been cleaned! My 2 year old ran around with bare feet and they were black within a few minutes so we kept socks or sandals on him the rest of our stay. We bought bleach and sprayed down the bathroom and should've bought a wet swiffer because the tile was DIRTY. I guarantee our sheets weren't washed because they had mascara on one set and something yellowish on the other set. We requested new sheets and put them on ourselves. We luckily brought our own blanket so we removed the 1980's comforters of each bed and used our blanket. We also bought pillows from Dollar General to be on the safe side. If you needed to dial another room#, you had to CALL the front desk and get an extension #, which was a completely different # from the room #! What kind of system is that!?!?!
The pool was NASTY looking and needed to be cleaned out.
Also, there were dogs (large and small) all over the place! Most of them were on leashes but as we were checking out of our room, one large mutt ran into our room while I was holding my 4 month old! I like dogs but I don't trust any dog, especially around my kids! The owner's 10 year old son came running in to get him and the owner just laughed it off and didn't even apologize. I never really had a problem with the staff but I was never greeted with a friendly face the whole time there.

Overall, the place is really old, outdated and cheap looking. The Sands Resort (their sister resort) next door was newer and in better looking shape. They even had a decent lazy river and water park for the kids! The only reason we stayed there was because of a family reunion but we'll NEVER set foot near there again!!

No towels or wash cloths, pee dried in a puddle on the side of the toilet. Maid came to clean the pee, she must have been the one that cleaned it in the first place, because she missed it again. Kids over took the indoor swimming pool and hot tub, put dish soap in the hot tub and had bubbles so high they were hiding in them. We told the hotel staff and they just shrugged it off and did nothing to remedy the situation. You better like dogs, they are everywhere, in the lobby, beside the pool, in the pool. Hotel is beat up and needs updating, might have been better if they cared enough to take care of it.

We stayed in tower 2 on the 10th and 11th floors, views were wonderful, daily maid service, condo was very clean,bedding was like new all furniture was updated including the floors. The children and grandchildren had a great time with the 2 water parks, the boat ride with the dolphins was really cool. We had ate at the brass rail and the food was really good for the price. breakfast buffet is so so. The amusement park off site is not suggested by us.....however everything else we did was truely a great vacation !!Can not wait to come back again for the holidays !!
Only people we heard complain were people that used and off site rental company because they did not get all the perks but they paid less....you get what you pay for.....

Let me preface this review by saying that I rarely take the time to write reviews for any hotel/company unless it significantly exceeds my expectations or fails miserably to meet my expectations. Ocean dunes falls into the second category. I booked this hotel because of it's location but the place is an absolute dump. The common areas are completely trashed, they smell badly and look like they have not been cleaned in years. The actual room was dirty, had roaches, dust bunnies and stains in various places throughout the room.

I asked for another room and was offered one that was in even worse condition. It then became
obvious to me that no room at this hotel would be acceptable for my wife and I. We felt dirty simply standing in the room so we left without spending the night.

Trust me, you can find something much cleaner for about the same price so don't waste your time with this place.

Room Tip: Don't stay here
