Went down with two adults and two teenagers, stayed for week and loved every minute. Checking in was quick and simple (even at 2:30 a.m.). Need a credit card on file for all spending/charges while on site. Rooms were super clean (a make or break factor for me), and the beds were great. Air conditioning worked without issue (it was...

Arrived on Friday. We own garden view villa. We asked for a floor higher up. We waited to check in until 6 pm to have a higher up floor. We get to our room and we have a dead tree view... Unkept trees around. I called front desk to complain. They offered a bottle of wine. They said they may...

We actually own here, but very seldom go. We usually trade in our weeks for other destinations. We went here this summer as we have a new granddaughter and our son wasn't quite ready to do any traveling/flying. The resort is great for families, but mainly, that's what it is. We had a few days just my husband and I...

Our family stayed for one week and found that the room, grounds and facilities were in incredible condition. There are many enjoyable activities at the complex and surrounding area. The beach, pools, fitness center and the other complex facilities are well maintained. We would highly recommend this facility to other families looking for a fun filled or relaxing vacation.

My family has stayed at the Grand Dunes two summers in a row. The accommodations are GREAT for families. The rooms are generous and very clean. It was very convenient to have two bathrooms as well as the washer and dryer. I know the price is high, but the pools are fantastic and the location can't be beat. The stretch...

As a long time Platinum Week and Destination Points owner at OceanWatch, I have certain expectations that are routinely met. This year, vacationing in July was no exception.

Let me start off by saying I'm not crazy about the actual ocean, so I really wanted a place with more to do with young kids (2 and 5), than just the actual beach. We came down with family, and they are used to renting a house with a more private beach area, but they were happy to try something...
