"Beautiful Views"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Wow, what a pool! This is a great resort for families. The outdoor swimming pool area is fantastic and offers a great kids area, and is only steps away from the ocean. This resort has 800 rooms and each building provides it's own check-in/registration. There was plenty of parking and I had no issues driving in, or out, of the parking lot. The lobby area was adjacent to the parking deck with easy access. The front desk was very professional upon my arrival and was able to accommodate me immediately. The restaurant serves breakfast buffet, lunch and dinner for an additional charge. I viewed a one bedroom suite that had clean and fresh with nice simple furnishings. They appeared to be relatively newer furnishings and in great working order. The beach view was beautiful and the feel of the beach very tropical. Located on the northern end of Myrtle Beach provided a quieter atmosphere. The rooms that I toured had a fully equipped kitchen, with microwave and refrigerator. The hotel has 20,000 s.f. of function space and can accommodate up to 500 people. I would recommend this hotel for a nice peaceful and outdoors environment. Although restaurants are just a short drive away, the hotel provides great all-in-one benefits.

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Certainly has potential"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Ocean Dunes Resort and Villas could use a face lift. The carpets were disgusting and need to be removed and the beds were not comfortable, felt like it had a hole in it. The Resort has potential to be a great family vacation spot as the view of the ocean was fantastic as was the pools and the water park. We loved the passes to the off-site water park which added a nice touch. However, we regretted going back to the dirty room to shower and sleep. The concept of the resort and villas is great and I'm sure 20 years ago it may have been five stars, but I give it a two. It definitely needs to be remodeled.

The hotel was perfect for my fraternity get away. Nice view, great people, all very kind. Wish the bathrooms didn't fog up so much, but besides that everything was perfect!
