“A great getaway - we'll stay again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2011

My family (wife & two college kids & a girlfriend) had a very small window of opportunity for a short vacation so we opted for Port A. It was a little pricier than some other places, but we chose The Dunes based on it's perfect location on the beach. The room we got was a 2-bedroom, 2-bath. We figured that one of us could sleep on the couch, but imagine our delight when we found two queens & a double bed in the bedrooms! The condo was very nice & the views from the deck were awesome. Management was helpful & friendly, as was their whole staff -- a very enjoyable few days. Recommended!

We've stayed here for several years now and we continue to come back because they have always made accommodations for our needs. We always bring 3 families with children and they love the pool and how close the beach access is. It's convenient location on the island makes it easy to get anywhere. The views are also great from any room we'be stayed in.

Kicked out after being promised an extra night and then they lied about it and stole personal items. Stay Away!

We stayed at the Dunes for the first time after spending many years at Sandcastle. We were NOT impressed at all. Our teenagers, 15 and 17 years old, were treated VERY rude when we were not with them. They are well behaved children and don't deserved to be harrassed in the matter they were. Also, the pool was nasty! Looks like it hadn't been cleaned in quite awhile. Algae is growing in several places!!!! Our room was nice and easy access to other things in town, but don't think we will stay again. Need to get some more friendlier staff!!!!

Had made reservations for July to take 4 generations for vacation but was able to go this month with my husband to check out the location and we are so glad we did. They put us in "one of their best" for our overnight stay. The room smelled of urine, everything outdated, rates were excessive (Saturday night), no services available, good beach front location however people camping on the beach as well as vehicles driving on the beach at all hours, which in addition to condo experience made us uncomfortable for both the children and great grandparents. We did search up and down the beach and found newer properties with lower rates, better maintained and clean rooms so if we were going would certainly have moved us to a different location. Also, if you make your reservations in advance and decide to cancel even more than 2 months ahead of time they will retain a $25 reservation fee per room.....ridiculous

Dunescondos, General Manager at The Dunes Condominiums, responded to this review, 12 July 2011
We would like to address your comments about your children being harassed. We never harass children but do inform them of rules in relation to the hot tub, pool & health club. If we knew what the circumstances were we would be glad to apologize if we were not defining rules for safety. Your comment on the pool was nasty during your stay seems contrary to our pool records that are kept daily and we did not have any other complaints from other guests whom stayed during the same period of time. Lastly we pride ourselves on having a friendly staff that caters to our over 15,000 guest each year. We thank you for taking time to comment on your experience.
