If you're on a tight budget or need to rent a place for a lot of people cheaply....Forest Dunes is the place. Everything you need is there or right down the street. Excellent views! Heated pool outside. heated pool inside. Lazy river and really hot jacuzzi!

We have stayed in Condo 1602 four times. We love this unit. It has everything you need plus more. It is very roomy for a family of 5. We love the location of Forest Dunes and the convenience of "Buckets". However, "Buckets" was quite short staff for how busy it was during spring break.

This place is in a great location. The ocean view from the balcony was fantastic. Nice room. The parking is a little tight if you have and SUV or van. Right across from the beach. Our room had a very nice kitchen. The room was decorated nicely and very clean. I would stay here again.

If you want to have a pleasant, decompressed time at the beach, the Forest Dunes is the place to go. No honky tonk, no overwheming crowds and an unhurried environment await you. This is a building with individually owned condos managed by a friendly and helpful staff situated on the old Ocean Forest property. It's a short drive to anything...

We had reservations for a stay during spring break. To begin with, the lazy river was closed indefinitely due to mechanical issues. We were optimistic it would be fixed during our stay. We checked in and were assigned to room 702. At first glance, it was obvious that the room was not cleaned well, if at all. The blankets and...

This was our fourth time being here and I regret to say our last. Our unit was very disappointing. Our bed was broken in the middle, the floor of the bathtub had black stains on it, the cupboards in the kitchen where either falling off or damaged, the unit looked like it was painted with the cheapest paint going, the...

The location of the resort is great. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The ocean view was great and staff very friendly and accommodating to guests. We stayed in Unit 1003.
