Wild Dunes Resort By Destination Hotels

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

enjoyed being able to walk to the beach,the area was beautiful and a quick walk easy walk brought us to the beach,also was close to downtown Charleston and we also toured the magnolia plantation which was within easy driving distance

The PM shift front office staff really cared about our stay. When confronted with a problem that was my doing, they worked hard to resolve MY problem. This was our second stay at the Wild Dunes and we will be back next year!

Great condo. Very clean and updated. Large rooms . Could not see ocean from condo but a 2 minute walk to beach. The Resort had a restaurant which was ok not great. Service good , food ok. Too many noisy kids running around out of control both at the inside dining area and the outside area.

Unfortunately we arrived to the hotel very late after attending a concert so did not get to enjoy the property as we had to leave early the next morning for the airport. The reception by the lady on duty was a breath of fresh air (everyone in South Carolina was just awesome). The two points that took away from the experience was firstly the drivers have a difficulty finding the property, which was annoying after a long day traveling and knowing you have to get up at 4 am this next morning. Secondly, the carpet in the elevator was really filty and had an ordor; we attribute it to the recent hurricane.

We both needed a relaxing, stress free getaway and were hoping for a great facility and staff to make our short 3 days exactly that. Loved the room and the facilities, especially the ADULT only pool area!!! We love our kids and grandkids but needed a break, and we got just that here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND...the VERY friendly and courteous staff was so refreshing. Would highly recommend...!

Overall great. Very comfortable and easy access to Charleston. Close to grocery store and quiet environment. BUT, furnitures need to be updated and deep clean.

Beautiful facility, desirable location, friendly, responsive and competent staff.

There was so much mold underneath the soap dish in the shower it was absolutely disgusting they need to learn what bleach is.

The property is beautiful and the staff is awesome! Definitely will be back and highly recommend.

We were visiting relatives in the area and decided to make the most of the beach.

I have stayed here several times and plan to return. My only complaint is the food - the restaurants are ridiculously expensive for what they are. $22 for a southern breakfast for one is crazy!!! Are they golden eggs? Besides the food, I love everything about this resort.

Very clean facilities, friendly staff. Very happy with our stay.

I love Wild Dunes! I do feel it's time to update the rooms at The Boardwalk Inn. Popcorn ceilings are cracking and have many stains.

We had an enjoyable enough time at Wild Dunes however, we were disappointed to discover that beach chairs and beach umbrellas were not included in the cost of the room and had to be rent separately. When flying to a luxury beach resort, most guests would expect those amenities to be included. To make matters worse, the chairs that are available for rent may look nice, but they are an antiquated design and uncomfortable. The rooms were clean and comfortable, as were the common areas. I might consider returning, primarily because I enjoyed the area and there is a lack of other luxury hotel options in the area.

Unfortunately, we made our reservation for the weekend of this historic rain and flooding. The forecast was ominous and we called to cancel and/or reschedule a day or two before we left. Sadly and even though they too knew the forecast, the resort would not accomodate our request without keeping our deposit. (over $400) In addition, USAIR did the same thing. So, we either traveled or not travel and lose a significant amount of money. We went and hoped for the best and that did not happen. The condo was beautiful but staff was minimal in the resort and all services were cancelled. We were lucky to get one meal in their restaurant. We don't fault the resort management for the decision to cancel services, activities, etc. due to the flooding, but we do believe a very bad decision was made to not allow us the flexibility to change our dates given the circumstances. They did at least give us a refund on our last night as we left a day early. We should have never went at all. We still hope to return as the people on site were friendly and the location is beautiful.

Our condo on the beach was a fabulous location, but the unit was extremely bare bones. We loved the amenities such as the lap pool and the sandwiches at the market. Would definitely return to the resort, but would ask for a better furnished condo.

have been to wild dunes many times, this was first time in Boardwalk inn. Experience was great, just great. We asked for early checkin and were graciously allowed to check in early, we found all the staff to be friendly and the other guests also seemed pleasent to interact with. The facility could use some TLC, ie wallpaper by the elevator peeling off all. Also every day we had to call for ice as the machine on floor never worked. Housekeeping could use mroe attention to details like replacing wated glasses in room and less time making shapes hearts with candy on bed. Not trying to be mean but just being honest. Sea Island Grill great and room service and front desk perfect.

All of our ideas of a great vacation were met. The only problem was that it was way too short. We tried to cover a lot in our days there. We hope to make another trip at another time.

Room was supposed to have king bed, did not. Was very humid on second floor, air conditioner didn't help.

Overall a very friendly, afford-ably priced resort. Nice location, clean and close to the beach. Nice size rooms and plenty of amenities. Only complaint was housekeeping. On first day did not replenish body wash and took away kitchen towels and did not provide new ones. Skipped our room cleaning on second day.
