I took a trip in February 2015 and from the pictures this resort looked pretty decent but when we go there it was a whole different story, it was not clean at all. It was not well kept , It had stains in the bathroom, dust everywhere ! And maintenance was very poor, maybe it would be alright if you... More

i have stayed up and down the Atlantic coast from Long Island to Miami Beach, but by far my favorite spot for, nightlife, golf, cuisine, and attractions is Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The Sands Ocean Club has played a large part in this. The SOC has the legendary Ocean Annies, Ocean front bar staffed with beautiful ladies to see to... More

I have been staying at Sands Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach for the last five years. I love the location and the view of the ocean is magical. The prices are always great even in the peak summer season and if you love to golf the off season rates are fantastic. Now they are tied into the best course I... More

Stayed here in late July and as I stated then, outside of the room was great but our issues were inside the room. Not this time. Great stay in a lovely room. The room seemingly had recently been renovated and was beautiful. The leather couch, mirrored walls, flat screen tvs, new dining room decor and the kitchen all were first... More

I'm not snobbish about the places I stay (you can see my prior reviews) but this place was not at all what I expected when I booked a "condo". I guess it's semantics and a little bit of deceitful presentation, I expect when I rent a beach side , beach view condo, I was expecting a ground level place. I... More

This place was a dump We had an ocean view suite, upon walking in you first saw the the kitchen cabinets falling off the hinges the stove covered in rust and crud. The bed mattress was old and on a downward slant. When you sat on the bed you got springs up your butt. The t.v was from the 70s... More

We got a two bedroom oceanfront suite on the 10th floor. Very pretty view; pretty down-at-the-heels room. Tired decor, hard bed, moldy bathtub, dripping faucet, toenail clippings in the carper--no, not making that up. I could have lived with all that for the view and the ocean BUT: the Ocean Annie bar band was so loud I felt like it... More

Those who have stayed at the Sands Ocean Club know that the rooms are at best-- adequate. But if you are going to Myrtle Beach there are two things to do-play golf and Ocean Annie's. Ocean Annie's speaks for itself as being the best beach bar on the East Coast. You can smoke cigars, have a drink, listen to some... More
