This is the third Festiva property we've stayed and I'm noticing some issues in common; lack of maintenance and lack of attention to detail. Our stay started off badly when our reservation somehow was cancelled in error. Luckily I had our confirmation with me. Without it I don't know what would have happened. The check in clerk didn't know what... More

We enjoyed our exchange here. It was in the older part of the place. We've stayed at better, but certainly stayed at worse. If we had been owners, our room would have been far nicer. The room needed some care, but it was nice.

My husband and I visit Ellington @ Wachesaw every year in October. The staff has always been friendly, professional, and anxious to make our stay comfortable and memorable. I would particularly like to mention Bethany, Erin, Whitney, and Carla. We will continue to stay here because the golf is good, the rooms are fine, and the staff always makes us... More

Four of stayed here on a timeshare exchange. The rooms are nicely decorated, they have everything you need, and the staff was friendly. The view looking out onto the golf course was probably great if you were a golfer. None of us were, but we enjoyed watching the ones who were. The location is fine, we didn't mind not being... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel the first week of Oct., 2014. Our visit was primarily to stay in Murrell's Inlet while house shopping. We were very pleased with the location, it is centrally located in Murrells Inlet. This is a time-share property and we were a bit disappointed that the units were very small and the walls... More

My family and I spent a week here on our visit to Myrtle Beach. The first thing that you must realize is you're not in Myrtle Beach, you're actually in Murrell's Inlet which is about 12 or 13 miles from Myrtle Beach. Personally I loved the area along with Pawley's Island, it's a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle... More

Its hard to believe that I was so hoodwinked by Festiva. This property isn't even close to the quality of the unit we purchased (Charleston). The unit itself has a musty old smell, the carpets are absolutely filthy and there is no view. The unit needs a complete overhaul. The implication was the resort was close to the beach when... More

After a fairly long trip to get there, as a party of two couples from UK, from arrival to departure the staff of this condo / apartment (ground and 1st floor) based establishment were most helpful, were friendly and very professional. Free Wi-Fi in all units was an important plus and the 2 bedroom apartment we used was clean and... More

Not bad - things were clean and staff was nice - but not impressive. Pretty far from the beach (3 miles) and house cleaning doesn't keep common household items (coffee, trash bags, dishwasher detergent, etc) in stock despite claiming to be fully furnished. They provide a sample of each item and then either expect for you to pay for additional... More

My daughter and I were looking for a quiet getaway close to Myrtle Beach. This was the perfect place. We were greeted by friendly staff at check-in. Our 2 bedroom villa was beautiful, spotlessly clean and smelled amazing! It didn't take long to get to Myrtle Beach and at the end of the day, was a relaxing place to come... More
