After our cruise was canceled to the Bahamas dued to Hurricane Sandy, Long Bay was recommended to us by a close friend who visits Myrtle Beach frequently. When we called to make a reservation we were surprised by the value of our stay. The staff was very pleasant and helpful when making the reservation. We had a beautiful ocean front room on the second floor, which was wonderful and quite serene. On the last day of our stay we experienced seeing dolphins swimming in the ocean... WOW!!! what a beautiful sight. I'm a Starbucks fanatic, and when I discovered that Starbucks was right downstairs, I was elated with joy, just the small things in life that really matter sometimes. (lol) I did not get a chance to experience the lazy River and pool because it was cool outside and the resort was in the process of covering the lazy river for indoors. I definitely will experience the lazy river and more when I come back with the whole family in April 2013. We have a reserved a 3 bedroom oceanfront condo and I'm looking forward to the oceanview again. Can't wait to share this venture with my entire family in April for spring break.
