"Beautiful Views"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Wow, what a pool! This is a great resort for families. The outdoor swimming pool area is fantastic and offers a great kids area, and is only steps away from the ocean. This resort has 800 rooms and each building provides it's own check-in/registration. There was plenty of parking and I had no issues driving in, or out, of the parking lot. The lobby area was adjacent to the parking deck with easy access. The front desk was very professional upon my arrival and was able to accommodate me immediately. The restaurant serves breakfast buffet, lunch and dinner for an additional charge. I viewed a one bedroom suite that had clean and fresh with nice simple furnishings. They appeared to be relatively newer furnishings and in great working order. The beach view was beautiful and the feel of the beach very tropical. Located on the northern end of Myrtle Beach provided a quieter atmosphere. The rooms that I toured had a fully equipped kitchen, with microwave and refrigerator. The hotel has 20,000 s.f. of function space and can accommodate up to 500 people. I would recommend this hotel for a nice peaceful and outdoors environment. Although restaurants are just a short drive away, the hotel provides great all-in-one benefits.
