Set on 2,200 acres between the Atlantic Ocean and the Grande Dunes Marina, this Four Diamond resort is ideal for golf enthusiasts and those seeking a quiet getaway in Myrtle Beach. Each of the 200 guestrooms and suites has a terrace, a bathroom with separate shower, and a fireplace (in most), with such additional amenities as soft bathrobes and optional in-room spa treatments. Several dining options are on offer, including the Waterscapes restaurant, a farm-to-table spot with fresh produce grown in South Carolina. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Executive Chef Julien Lancrerot whips up entrees such as shrimp and grits and roasted chicken with gnocchi, as well as flaked black bass with champagne sauce and tarragon chips. When you’re looking to relax, park it on the beach (transportation provided), in the sauna or hot tubs, or hang poolside; there’s also a seasonal cocktail bar that shakes up cocktails from 11 a.m to 5 p.m.

Marina Inn at Grande Dunes: I love everything about this hotel. Very nice place to stay and relax. There's Alot of activites you can enjoy around this hotel. The Environment is very clean and the inside is neat as well. Customer services was excellent. We will definitely come back again.
We came to this resort after staying in Charleston for a medical appointment for my husbands sixtieth birthday. At the front desk, our room was immediately upgraded. Nice touch! The resort is beautiful and staff was friendly. Pilar was very nice, friendly, accommodating with a super upbeat personality. Everyone at the front desk was very nice. There is a shuttle to the private beach which is awesome. Our driver, Sam, was the best! He gave us tips on where to eat when we questioned him as well as travel advice in Myrtle Beach. There were chairs at the beach with an umbrella waiting for us. My husband has health issues and the two lifeguards, Tyler and Robert, were amazing in watching and keeping an eye on him. An awesome experience. The only downside for us was the lack of supervision at the pool area. There were no staff that even checked on the pool. There were four children who looked like ages six to ten who were in the pool unsupervised. One hit his head and when someone asked if he had parents or grown up at the pool he responded, "no". Some of the kids were very roudy and with no staff or parents there, it got a bit out of control. Other than the pool, stay was awesome.
I was here for business at the end of April and was very pleased with the site and service. I like that you sit and have a more personal and pretty setting to check in. Pilar and Sheryl gave us a warm welcome and were very helpful.
The entire site and rooms are well cared for — ample parking too.
The business/functions rooms are very attractive and comfortable. Our catering and A/V services were accurate, attentive and very professional.
Whether for business or for pleasure, if you want to visit Myrtle Beach but don’t want the noisy and hectic experience of the hotels that are on the main drag, this is a pleasing location and a very good value.
Fun, relaxing time at Marina Inn at Grand Dunes. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Facility was clean and well laid out. The location was also good, not near crowded busy area. Nice visit!!! We will definitely go back to this location.
