Wonderful get away

We had a great time. We had never been to South Carolina before so Wild Dunes was a completely new experience. We were pleasantly surprised and had a memorable time. Being on the beach was fabulous and going into Charleston was a delight.

Definitely a great value

We got a 2br condo. The room was huge and it was right on the beach. There's no daily house cleaning, but for the price, that's acceptable. The room was dated, but had a full kitchen and washer/dryer.

A little disappointing

I actually booked this hotel for friends who were visiting us from PA. Although they were OK with the experience overall, they told me things that were disappointing. Upon check-in, they were provided with a code to get into the condo, as well as a packet with things like gate passes for vehicles, etc. Upon reaching the condo, the code to enter did not work. They ended up calling the check-in desk to discuss the issue. After a few minutes on the phone, they finally got a new code and were able to get into the condo. Late that evening, they discovered they were provided with the packet for another guest, and didn't have the appropriate vehicle passes. This required another trip to the check-in desk the following morning to get everything straightened out. I visited our guests at their condo. While the view was superb, beach access was easy, and the ability to enjoy time on the screened-in porch which looked out on the dunes and ocean was great, I felt the condo needed some work. Cabinet doors were hanging crooked sometimes, the place smelled a little musty, and many things looked tired and outdated. All of these things are something I would not have expected at a 4-star resort, particularly for the price I paid. I really wanted our guests to have an outstanding experience and, although they did not complain, I did not feel they got what I was hoping or paid for. I will probably check the box that I would recommend Wild Dunes to a friend, but also share my disappointment.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

While the shops and amenities at Wild Dunes are very nice, they are also a little pricey and a little bit limited. There is a very nice shopping area called Seaside Farms just off the Isle of Palms Connector on the Mt. Pleasant side. There is a grocery store, discount department store, various shops, and numerous dining opportunities in this area that a visitor to the Isle of Palms should consider exploring.

Great getaway for relaxation and fun

Although we only stayed one night in this hotel, our experience was a great one. The spa was excellent and the way the resort is set up was convenient for accessing different pools, walking to the beach and having different options of restaurants to choose from. The staff was helpful and friendly. Overall wonderful experience!

One night at Wild Dunes

On route to Litchfield we decided to spend 1 night at this acclaimed resort.It was a good choice as the hotel met all our expectations. Attentive staff, very nice room, though because we were placed in the "Village" rooms, not much of a view as there are several Charlestown style houses between us and the beach. Nonetheless, all the amenities including a very comfortable bed made for a nice stay. The only low point was the room was not ready until almost 5:00 PM and since checkout is at 11:00, our one day stay was a 3 fourths day. The height point was a dinner at the Sea Island Grill. As Manhattanites we are blessed with a wide range of great restaurants and the meal was among the best we have had. Even the best wines where available by the glass ( as long as you ordered a minimum of 2 glasses - very civilized if for example one diner wanted a red wine, another a white. We will definitely return.
