A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of staying at Wild Dunes with my family for Father’s Day, it was the ideal getaway and staycation for all of us. Anywhere that has a pool, refreshing drinks and great food is a recipe for the perfect weekend. Our first stop of course was the pool. There are 4 pools to choose from and we checked out the Boardwalk Inn pool first. The kids loved it because it had two areas with a walkway bridge that you could swim under. The cabanas are perfect to grab some shade and take a nap.
Me and my boys wore our new swimsuits by Surania, an online company that let’s you customize your swimsuits. They loved playing fashion designer by picking out their patterns and style of shorts. Sebastian has been sporting his euro mankini look all summer long!
The pool was perfectly located behind the Boardwalk Inn and led out to the boardwalk where the ice cream shop was strategically placed. We pool hopped going to the Grand Pavilion Pools next and eventually to the beach. We felt like we were thousands of miles away staying at a resort in the Caribbean, not just 30 minutes from our house.
I didn’t realize how many different places you can stay at from hotels, condos, cottages, and vacation home rentals. We stayed at The Village at Wild Dunes, where we had everything at our fingertips. They have a grocery market, The Lettered Olive restaurant, fitness center, and spa which was so convenient. At night their fire pit lights up and you can roast marshmallows while you relax in an adirondack chair.
Wild Dunes has so many activities to do you would have to stay a whole week just to take advantage of it all. From golfing, tennis, basketball, bike rentals, boat tours, kayaking, paddle boarding, jet skiing, parasailing, waterskiing, banana boats, and fishing there’s something for everyone in your family to enjoy.
I can’t believe it took me so long to experience Wild Dunes, I look forward to coming back to check out the fun events they have all year round. Stay tuned for more fun experiences as we explore the property and our delectable dinner at Coastal Provisions.
