Beautiful resort!

Our room was very clean, and updated. The bed could have been softer, and a little better quality. See full review

Surprisingly relaxing biz convention

Mary & I have never experienced a more professional staff than those we met at Wild Dunes during this past business conference trip. While we were hoping for a least a few hours rest away, some needed peace, quiet, amongst our busy conference stress ladened itenerary we were tasked to, these folks not only met our expectations but exceeded them above any we'd ever experienced. Now folks, that's a LOT 'cause momma Mary is 79 years young and she has traveled far and wide in her few years on our globe! KUDOS to Wild Dunes Resort & Staff

While staying at the resort, check out the Marina Restaurant within a .5 miles drive from the main gate entrance (ask for the Wild Dunes marina and any local can tell you how to get there. Fantastic, locally caught wild seafood, plenty of grub, and a real deal bargain with prices this day and time. Bon appetite

Wonderful location

We reserved an off-season villa at Wild Dunes for a weekend business planning meeting. The accommodations were very comfortable and the resort property is gorgeous. We enjoyed the biking trails and convenience of having everything nearby. The villa was beautifully decorated and had all the supplies we needed for a relaxing weekend.

Not what I asked for!!!

[...] Asked specifically if the room I was looking at was in the Boardwalk Inn. The agent assured me even though it said "villa" it was what they call their rooms in the "Boardwalk Inn". Got to Wild Dunes and the room was a rental villa, substandard, very outdated, air conditioner didn't work and there was a horrid stench! Thanks to [...] at "the Boardwalk Inn" he transferred us to the Inn at the same price. Purchasers beware!!!!

Fabulous stay at Wild Dunes

My husband attended a medical conference over the weekend. We were very impressed with the room. The staff was very helpful and all of our concerns were handled within a few minutes. Only complaint from my husband was the lack of television programing. No movie channels or pay per view.

Gorgeous room. Perfect location to the beach. Very friendly staff. Wanted a jacuzzi, but surprising none. That is my only negative, other than that it was perfect.

Wonderful oceanfront location

It was just fine really. The villa was nice and roomy and had a great oceanfront view. Our sliding doors opened right onto the dunes. Hard to beat. We would not have found using the other amenities as easy however given that we weren't actually staying at the hotel. We did eat dinner at the Sea Grill in the hotel. The food was excellent as was the service - but the view was better in our villa!!

Great Location

My room was right on the water, bigger than expected with a second floor lookout balcony I was not expecting. The housekeeping service was very friendly and attentive. The facilities were very nice. 1 uninvited palmetto bug was my only complaint---but what do you expect at the beach.

There is dining at the resort, good restaurants a short distance away, and slightly further is everything in Charleston. Ohter than the resort and beach, most other attractions/shopping are accessible/close in Charleston.
