LOUD music till late late late even though the RULES state clearly that it is supposed to be quiet at 10PM. Many complaints resulted in NO ACTION because the noisy people were supposedly police officers! Reporting to the main office the day after and many times after my departure resulted in NOTHING. I guess if you are a cop, the rules do not apply! Security staff was SNOTTY and condescending. the facility is EXPENSIVE and crowded, much like Newport itself and if you come into park after 10PM they make you sleep in an unsecured parking lot so others are not disturbed. REALLY! That rule they enforce!
This is a nice place. Sure it's a bit pricey for an RV park but it is Newport Beach. The bathrooms are quite clean and I saw them cleaned multiple times each day.
Place is quiet as I think quiet hours are well enforced. Yes there are a few planes and PCH is nearby but its really not a bother for us, we slept quite well.
The Newport Dunes park is a nice, but overpriced RV park located right on the bay in Newport. The park has sand sites with a small concrete pad for outdoor living. However, the sites are extremely small. We had less than a foot of clearance to the next RV site on both sites of our rig. The park has decent amenities with clean bathrooms and showers, a nice pool and hot tub area along with a small convenience store. We enjoyed our stay here but felt it was priced too high for the sites that they offer.
Office was nice and accommodating. The park itself was uneven, dirty (minimal concrete), and way overpriced. We are not scared off by price, but this on was only 25% full and it is obviously due to the lack of value for the price. Won't stay there again.
Bottom line, very tight park (especially if you have a big rig!), right on the water, with a price to high to be considered a good value. But hey, it's Southern California so you can't beat the weather. Much better options available elsewhere. Oh, one more thing, the staff is about as friendly as your typical union worker, in other words, "it's not my job" attitude.
This park is directly under the flight path to John Wayne Airport and adjacent to Pacific Coast Parkway. The noise from both is unbearable, especially incoming/outgoing jetliners. We've never stayed in a noisier park anywhere in the USA. The sites are dirt, muddy when it rains, too narrow, too short and uneven. There's virtually no room to park your towed vehicle so cars are parked in the street. Our restroom lacked hot water and water leaked out to street for entire month. So much for conserving water in California. Did I mention the rats in the dumpster that nest above the restroom? The "Bistro" was terrible and overpriced. Taco Night was a joke...cold, overpriced tacos! Don't be mislead by the website and luxurious images portrayed therein...this place really sucks! We'll never go there again!
This resort is right next to Hyatt Regency and in a very nice area but it has seen better days. There are some really nice spots on the lake but around the edges in the premium spots, it is dirt sites and very lightly jammed together. Little space around the vehicle and had to park the car in the street. Wifi good, cable ok. Dog walking around the lake.
Look this is a great RV park but very pricey we stayed for a month and the only problem I had is no one followed the rules the spaces were hard to back into and dirt pads. Look out when it rained. Dog run people would not clean up after there pets. ( not parks fault they had signs up) it's just no one followed the rules.
