My boyfriend and I stayed 1 night in an Oceanfront King Jacuzzi Suite. I have visited family staying there but we had not stayed before. I was greeted at the front desk by Chandra who was very friendly and efficient. She had me checked in in less than 5 minutes. She also called about 30 minutes after we got in... More

We stayed 5 days 4 nights and was unhappy from day 1! The price turned out to be way too expensive for the place considering there are other nicer hotels up the beach for same price! We had issues with people staying in rooms above us. They threw food over the side of the hotel on our vehicle! It was... More

This place is a joke of a hotel. The front desk is across the street from the actual hotel, what sense does that make? They have a guest services on the resort side but it was closed, so when the room key got demagnetized, we had to walk across the street in the cold. The Loco Gecko was ridiculously overpriced...

Our baseball team just stayed here this weekend, 12/5/14-12/7/14 for a tournament. The waterslides were fun for the kids but the hotel itself is disgusting. Serious infestation of cockroaches! The indoor pool area in Tower 2 was the worst I have ever seen in my life. You will see 10-12 at a time crawling around. The Loco Gheko Bar and... More

Our trip to the Crown Reef Resort in myrtle beach was fantastic! The rooms are so nice there and the staff is so amazing and friendly! We absolutely enjoyed the restaurant Loco Gecko. Their food is so amazing! My kids loved the water park as well! We will definitely be going back to visit again!

We've been to the Crown Reef for two separate one weeks stays, 2013 (May) and 2012 (April). The review options didn't allow me to choose those dates so ignore the Dec 2013.
