We really enjoyed our stay at the Dunes Resort. Our 4yr old had a great time in the water park as did my husband. They used the water slides multiple times, floated the lazy river quite a bit and spent a lot of time in the kiddie pool. The only negative was the older kids purposely backing up the lazy river and playing roughly in the kiddie pool. Because there are no life-guards, there was no one monitoring these types of issues. (I did find it odd that so many people had SMALL children in the hot tubs.) We only used the water facilities in the... Palm? tower- the one intended for smaller children.
Loading and unloading the car wasn't a lot of fun since the front lot was so small and partially blocked for valet.
The lunch/dinner restaurant- not bad, not cheap for the type of food but not bad overall.
We had an angled ocean view suite which provided a great view. We had a king bed in a separate room from the murphy bed/pullout couch in the other room. We had to take the glass top off of the table in the living room and put it behind the couch to pull out the murphy. Needless to say it was a VERY small room and the table only had 2 chairs which was odd for a suite that's supposed to hold 6 people. In the bedroom, I had to move the bedside table aside to open the closet. Again, small but otherwise nice. The worst part was the noise. We could only get a room on the 4th floor and then the one next to the elevator. The pounding of feet and yelling from the floor above us went on past midnight each of the nights we were there. At one point, I was in our bathroom and heard someone having a conversation in the room above us nearly as clear as if they were in our suite.
We did have problems with both of our room cards dropping their "codes" while we were there so we had to trek back to the main desk to get them reset.
The rooms seemed clean and while maybe not new, in good condition. I did find a dirty plastic cup behind a bed table and a piece of packaging under the bed, which since it was on a platform, meant that the bedspread definitely wasn't removed, or checked under between stays.
Overall, a good experience with only a few small complaints.
