“Great Family Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2012

Wonderful place to stay. Grounds are always kept up, which makes it nice when you come back from the beach, freshly cut green grass to walk on. The pool area is always kept up, it has plenty of chairs and tables around it. Very friendly management & staff every time we have called & visited the property. Been their at different times of the year, always the same maintenance on the property. The two bedroom condos are nice and roomy, upstairs is a private bedroom with a full bath, and downstairs a private bedroom and a full bath in the hallway. We have been visiting there for quite awhile now. We have been in different units on the property over the years and have never been disappointed, always furnished nice and very clean, kitchen has what you need.

We stayed in an updated condo #1504 and we loved every minute of it. We walked out out front door and walked right to the beach. Wonderful!! Grill is included for when we caught fish. Storage is good. And condo sleeps six.

My group ( about 16 of us) stay here every year for Memorail Weekend. Rooms are great, except sometimes the 1st floor toilet may clog up in some rooms. Great location, safe pool for children/teens, safe neighborhood, and safe parking lot. Staff is great! This will be our 5th year to stay at Island Dunes! Best thing is you can't hear your neighbors unless they are right outside your door. HUGE PLUS

Room Tip: All the rooms are pretty much the same

The staff was very helpful! We were a little skeptical at first (because of the website, there weren't that many pictures). But, when we arrived, it was wonderful. We didn't want to leave! The condo was very clean and spacious. It is a short walk to the beach and the kids loved the pool. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone!

We've stayed here before with our adult friends (before kids) and now that our little one is 8 months old we are happily coming back and bringing another friend with us. For us it is a little on the pricier side, but we feel it is good for what you get. Previous reviews remind me that each unit is different and your experience can really depend on that. Our unit last time was perfectly nice. The grounds were fine... nothing spectacular, but you are only a very easy walk from the beach. I'll update this post after this weekend... but our past experience was definitely a good one.

We booked a two bedroom condo for a weekend at Port Aransas, TX because it was near the beach. Our party was 4 adults and two small children. We were given Condo No. 1307. It was the only unit available so we could not make any changes. The unit was dirty, the floor was dirty and the furniture appeared to be 20+ years old and very soiled. The sofa couch was broken such you could not sit on it. The floor on the secound floor slanted so items on the dresser would roll off to the floor. We tried to speak to the management when leaving but was not available. I would not book another accommodation with this hotel.

We have stayed at Island Dunes 3 times now and each stay was a great experience. The layout of the 2 bedroom unit is great and having the washer/dryer in the unit is a bonus. The staff is very friendly. The unit we stayed in this year was very nice, but it was being taken out of the rental pool after we left for some remodeling....doesn't need it as far as I'm concerned.
Plenty of parking, and during the week it is not very crowded at all. Seems really quiet-no late night hootin' and hollerin'.
