“Except for the cheesy sales people, we LOVED our visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Forget that this is also a time share! Revel in the beautiful in-door and out-door pools, the great club house, the barbecue area, the considerate maintenance and front desk staff,etc. We stayed there for 9 nights and had a beautiful view of the inland waterway, with big boats going up and down daily (very quietly).

It was so nice to cook one to two meals a day in the well appointed kitchen and save some calories and some money. We went on a pretty major shopping trip to the nearby Super-Walmart on the first day and it was perfect. We also used Amazon.com ahead of time to ship things that we did not want to bring with us on the plane. We didn't want to spend a lot of time or money there shopping for bulky, or hard to find items (like a boogie board, a beach umbrella and a cooler bag to name a few).

The washer and dryer were great to have; they really helped cut down on the amount of clothes we needed to bring. My husband flew in the day after I did, so I traveled from California with two small kids. We had one carry on and all carried backpacks. My husband checked one bag, and that was it for our family.

If we didn't have so many other destinations on our "bucket list" we'd go back in a heart beat. But, with our budget, and the reality of travel with small kids, one MAJOR (read:cross country or overseas) trip every two years or so is about our max.

We couldn't believe Myrtle Beach isn't marketed to us folks from California. There were people there from all over the country, and all over the world, and it is so great for a family. So many choices of activities. We blended hanging out on the beach, with an Aquarium visit, a Pirate voyage, a Pirate dinner theater, time at the lazy river and our pool, Octoberfest, the Statue garden, trying all the different restaurants, clams that we cooked at the resort fresh from the fish shop, Wonderworks, etc. So FUN!!!

Room Tip: All rooms have a view of a lake or the inland waterway. We prefer the inland waterway. Try to get...

We visited Harbour Lights as part of promotion from Bluegreen Resorts thru Bass Pro. It is a great propery, but probably would not stay there during prime season. It would take too long in the prime traffic to reach the oceanfront. It is about 4 miles to beach, Broadway at the Beach and the airport. The service was excellent. The 2 bedroom unit was spacious, clean and stocked with all the kitchen items needed. It could use a little better soundproofing, though. The pools, hot tubs, and available games were great. Would be nice if outdoor pools were heated, but had indoor pool. Not much within walking distance, except Midevial Times. (The pesentation took more than the 2 hours that they quote you.)

we took a vacation to Myrtle beach and stayed at Harbour Lights by Bluegreen. the rooms were nice and fully stocked with amenities. they say the resort is "on the water", but its just small inlet waterway. the staff was friendly and helpful. the best part was the pools. they have 2 big pool areas. one with a little lazy river to relax in and the other has a larger kids area with water jets/fountains to play in.
the 2 things that i didnt like: 1) ~15min drive to the public beach and downtown Myrtle Beach. and 2) there is nothing around this resort. all the businesses and restaurants have closed down. the area just looks abandoned.

Had a great stay a Harbour Lights, I was a little worried about the not being on the beach and whether the kids would have fun. However Harbour Lights has a host of activities for kids and adults alike to keep you busy at the hotel.

pros
family friendly
pools
friendly staff
very clean

cons
no elevators
not on the beach
resort is a little out of the way

Room Tip: try to get a first floor

Stayed for a weeks vacation and was very happy with resort. There are two outdoor pools and one indoor pool and a lazy river. You can rent bicycles for the day or by the hour. We rode out bikes everyday at the abandoned mall across the street. It was the perfect location for my 7 year old daughter to bicycle. Hotel gave us free passes for Myrtle Beach State park which was a 20 minute ride. The park is less crowded and family orientated. I would definitely go back again!

We stayed here for three nights. I was pleasantly surprised by the property since it is surrounded by a lot of vacant businesses. We had a one bedroom suite that included a full kitchen and washer and dryer. Everything we needed for the kitchen and laundry were provided. The washer and dryer were shared with another suite in the entryway, but this was not an issue. The grounds were well maintained. It was a nice family atmosphere. Despite the fact this property is not on the beach I would stay here again.

I took my girlfriend for an adult weekend at Harbour Lights. While Harbour Lights is not on the beach and most of the attractions near it are not closed or shut down, it is still a nice place. The staff treated us very nice. The facilities were clean and appeared to be well maintained. One of the outside pools overlooks the Intercoastal Waterway.The resort is owned by Bluegreen and has a similar floor plan to other resorts in Bluegreen family. We stayed in a one bedroom that overlooked the Intercoastal Waterway. If the bed was higher we could see the boats travel up and down the waterway. The outdoor pools get warmer as the summer days progress which can be a problem on a very hot day. All in all it is a great resort to visit!!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for Building that face the Intercoastal Waterway.
