“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We've stayed at this resort multiple times over the last few years and love it for it's location, clean, comfortable rooms, and most importantly, the breakfast buffet! The omelets made to order and the waffles alone make for a great start to any day at the beach. The views are great and the staff very accommodating. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: North tower rooms have unobstructed views

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We have enjoyed many previous stays at Sea Watch Resort. The people who work there from Check in to housekeeping have always been friendly and, when we needed them, helpful.

The restaurant has always served excellent breakfast buffets and delicious Thanksgiving Buffets.

The view of the ocean and the beach from the balcony for every stay has been gorgeous and is one of the reasons we love Sea Watch Resort.

Our recent stay at Sea Watch Thanksgiving week was enhanced even more by the beauty and
decor of condo 805. My first comment upon entering this condo was to mention to my husband that this one was different...it was much prettier than the others where we'd stayed. Let me hasten to say that all of the condos at Sea Watch are clean and neat. All have had comfortable beds. All have had pleasant atmospheres. However, condo 805 had been given a decor that exceeded any we had earlier experienced.

The owners have gone beyond the normal expectations of travelers like ourselves to create an atmosphere of an attractive home environment. Honestly, my husband did not comment on this, but then men don't give decor much thought...or at least mine doesn't!

We will, no doubt, remember these extras when we make reservations to stay at Sea Watch Resort and request Condo 805.

Room Tip: Again, I recommend Condo 805. However, all rooms have good balcony views and excellent cleanliness...

Thank you for the wonderful compliments about the staff, the breakfast and Thanksgiving buffet! It is also nice to have your impression of unit 805 in the North Tower as this unit was furnished as model to suggest new and upgraded decor to our rental homeowners. Cleanliness is a top priority for all travelers and I appreciate you mentioning it in your comments. We look forward to having you as a guest again real soon and the opportunity to provide you with and outstanding vacation.

Great central location, 10 min to Broadway at the Beach, 5 min to Barefoot Landing, 2 min to Tanger Outlets and Walmart. Ocean front. Multiple pools and hot tubs. Even a lazy river. On site dining. Pool-side Tiki Bar. We've stayed here many times and have never been disappointed.

Room Tip: Go for higher floors and rooms with numbers above xx07.

I found the view beautiful!!!! The weather was nice, but the place had an enclosed pool, Jacuzzi in the case of bad weather. I was disappointed in the room and in the placement above ongoing tile work and construction. I know it will be great once the upgrades are complete.

Room Tip: I would call ahead to find out if there are any anomalies. We were not told of the ongoing construc...

The furnishings were a bit dated and the televisions were low end. That being said, everything else was very good at the Sea Watch resort. The location was fantastic. The beach access was easy. Everything in the room worked as expected and was maintained well. The staff were all extremely friendly and courteous. The front desk offered area activity tickets at good discounts. Overall, I wish my stay had been longer. I will definitely consider Sea Watch for my next stay at Myrtle Beach.

I'm glad to hear that you will consider staying with us again. We are in the process of changing all the old tube televisions with the flat screens and this is also the time of year we inspect the units for needed upgrades so hopefully you will see improvements on your next vacation. Is good to know that you took advantage of our attraction sales. We are also available to book any of the shows and golf prior to your arrival at a discounted rate and will have everything ready for you at check in. We look forward to serving you again soon!

I loved everything about this resort. It was beachfront, the grounds and the pools were nice. Great views of the beach. Staff was professional and nice. There is a restaurant open for breakfast and lunch and a little pizza place open a bit later. I liked that there was a pool bar. This place is a condo so there is a full kitchen and fridge if you don't want to eat out. The particular unit we rented was a one room condo, but could have easily slept 6 people. My only complaint would be that there aren't very many beachfront restaurants/bars around this area.

I definitely want to go back here.

It's wonderful to hear that you will return to Sea Watch and I am very glad that you enjoyed your recent stay. We are fairly secluded from restaurants and bars especially within walking distance. We do have the Tiki Bar and entertainment during the summer such as two afternoon pool parties during the week with a DJ and Chief Kamu Fire and Hula Show was Monday nights. Thank you for sharing your Sea Watch vacation with others and hope to see you return soon.
