Dunes Village Resort

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Reservations do not tell you which tower you will be in. We ended up checking into the wrong tower and having to haul our luggage to the second tower. If you stay in the tower not directly across from the parking garage it can be taxing as we had to walk to retrieve our car in the pouring rain and the "shuttle" was no where to be found.We ended up using Valet for our stay and even though we called 30 minutes prior to needing our car for dinner at night it was never there. We still ended up waiting and attendants were often rude. Pools were clean, but hot tubs often looked very dirty and had stuff floating in them. The lunch and dinner restaurant had only one bar tender waiting on tables and guests at the bat at 12:30PM. He said the waitresses should be there anytime. We ended up eating else where after waiting 20 minutes for our drink order to be taken and for someone to bring us menus. The breakfast restaurant is so crowded each morning (very little seating) you have to wait in huge line that wraps around the lobby. We ended up eating breakfast out everyday after waiting in the line for 30 minutes and it had not moved. We stayed here 5 years ago and it was wonderful. The service and staff have gone down hill.

Great view of the beach, comfortable room, and great amenities

The hotel was what I had expected. Room was pretty standard and clean. Our ocean front room had nice views but we were on the 8th floor and there were people below us that had an extended balcony. There was no privacy for them or us. That is expected at these Mytle Beach hotels so this one was no different. We enjoyed our stay but would not want to be here when hotel is at capacity. Too cold to be on the beach but beach area was nice. Good place for families with small kids.

Pleasantly surprised. Outside of the overcharge in my card, perfect stay.

Close to beach and local attractions. The corner view unit had plenty of room for a family of 4 and some e,tra ro spare.

After an exhausting and frustrating early morning of travel, we arrived at Dunes Village with the hope that we could check in early. Toni was at the front desk and could not have been more pleasant and accommodating - she really made what started out as a bad day much, much better! She was able to get us into a 6th floor room (I had already booked the oceanfront deluxe studio) that was ready to go right away. The hotel and room were a bit tired looking, but serviceable. The view from our room was wonderful and was the highlight of the stay. The bed, however, was very firm with little to no give (I am used to a thick memory foam topper on my firm bed). Also, the pillows were so overstuffed that they hardly had any give at all. By the end of my hips and both of our necks were killing us! I will say the that shower water pressure was awesome, but the towels are best described as tiny and highly exfoliating. The small kitchenette was a great convenience to have. We had one day of rain, so I checked out the kid-friendly pool area. On that day, a Wednesday, there were only 3 other people in the pool area (all adults). I enjoyed the lazy river and the spa very much. I will say that we arrived on a Saturday and the pool was full of children and their families. The noise from the pool was generally well-contained; however, the elevator floors were almost constantly wet. Not a big deal for us.

Children enjoyed the planned activities as well as the water park

The room was clean, kids loved the indoor water park. Hotel staff was nice. Starbucks in lobby was a huge plus Only complaint was the wifi signal is terrible.

We stayed from December 16-20. They said at check in the hotel was about 75% full. However it didn't seem that way. The pools were not crowded. My kids really enjoyed the lazy river and kids pools. Also the hot tubs!! Everything was clean and warm! It was 30 outside when we got there!

The hotel has a lovely location on the beach. Our room was well appointed and clean with a stunning beach view. Staff was very nice. Great place for a family with children! We were on business so stayed only one night.

Hotel itself is wonderful! A+++ staff Room was a little under par for the price. Our room had broken doors, it wasn't fullly cleaned, and I've had nicer towels in a motel 6. The waterpark and amenities made up for the room, but the manangement should keep a better check on the rooms

Everything was great. Except that we didn't know that the windows were damaged and the water park was technically outdoor.

The people at the hotel couldnt be nicer. Good beachfront location, but unless you're there for a beach vacation, Id say it was just ok. The beds and pillows were hard and not very comfortable. The tv's kind of on the smaller side and the furnishings were just tired. The room did have wifi, and there was a kitchen, but for me it was ok.

Rooms was comable alot of things to do there kids enjoyed .

Just spent 1 night as I just needed a place to sleep and shower for a day trip. Surprised it was clean as usually internet pics are old and not accurate. Beds were comfy and bathroom/shower was clean. View was amazing and the price was right!

The hotel was in a great location, but the room could have used some upgrades. The balcony door barely opened, the sink and bath tub drains were both broken. You can hear every single noise outside the room.

Check in was easy. They have load/unload spots in front, which was convenient, but parking was across and down the street from the building we were in. The raking garage had great security features, but spots were very tight and driving through the garage was a pain. We loved the view (oceanfront room) and plenty of space in the room. It did however lack in cleanliness. The towels had hair on them, the fridge was disgusting on the outside (it clearly had not been wiped off in some time), there was and in the dresser drawers, the floor was moist/damp, and there was a slight smell. Furniture could definitely use to be updated. I was excited to have a hotel with waterpark, but It's not the greatest. It was not really clean and again very dated. While it wasn't the best, I'm positive it could have been worse. Unless I got an amazing deal, I doubt we would ever stay here again.

We had a great visit! My Grand daughter loved the water parks, ocean beach and giant chess set. She is 3. The staff was super friendly and went out of their way to make our stay special. This hotel is on our "must visit again" list. We loved that our room had a kitchen and a fantastic view of the ocean. We will plan for additional days next time.

Great place to stay specially for families having kids
