Boasting some of the area’s most inexpensive room rates, Forest Dunes Resort is an absolute gem for families who are looking to spend some time in Myrtle Beach without breaking the bank.
And if you want to get far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown without feeling isolated, this resort is perfect. Because the property is surrounded by North Myrtle Beach’s more residential areas, the environment is quieter and more peaceful than many of the area’s other resorts; perfect for families who just want to kick back and relax!
The resort’s 134 rooms are split into one- and three-bedroom condominiums, along with one two-room suite. In-room amenities include a DVD player, full kitchen, coffeemaker and air conditioning, and each room offers superb ocean views.
Families will enjoy the free DVD library at the front desk, as well as access to the resort’s lazy river, indoor and outdoor pools, kiddie pool, and whirlpool. There is also an onsite arcade! And of course, families are blown away by the miles of beautiful beaches and all of the other local family-friendly attractions, shops and restaurants Myrtle Beach is known for.

The overall place was great. The condo we stayed in needed a couch and bed that didn't dip in the middle. But the views more then made up for that. The views were some of the best we've ever had while on vacation. I'm giving the hotel 5 stars because the hotel itself made up for the lack of comfort from the couch and bed.
We visited Forrest Dunes for the 7th year in a row this past weekend. We had 2- 3 bedroom suites and a 1 bedroom suite. With a total of 15 people. When we arrived we found a crane in the parking lot lifting roofing supplies to the roof. The lady at check in explained that we would have to use the back entrance to the parking deck. Not a big deal at all for us. Our rooms were clean and comfortable as always. The pool was refreshing to the kids. The staff is always friendly and helpful. As i said earlier, this was our 7 th year staying at Forrest Dunes and we have already made our plans to celebrate Christmas with them again next year. Wonderful place to stay and relax
