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

My daughters and myself stayed at Ellington at Wachesaw for my oldest 10th birthday weekend getaway celebration. Tamara at the front desk was awesome! When I mentioned it was my daughter's birthday she went beyond good customer service to superb and ensured we had an awesome time - her knowledge of things to go, places to eat and the amenities...

Stayed labor day weekend. After reading some of the reviews, I was almost fearful I had booked here. Beginning with Tamara at the front desk, everything was great. She is the best experience in this resort - so helpful and obliging. I was alone this particular weekend and looking for a quiet respite. Tamara put me in a very nice... More

Its pretty cheap for what you get. All the rooms have full kitchens and are like small apartments. They have a putt putt and cornhole course on site thats free. A nice golf course on site thats not free. Two swimming pools (one inside one out) and bikes to ride around on (also free). Its a great deal if you... More
