“Nice resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

It was our first time to myrtle beach and we enjoyed this resort. We rented through a private company but enjoyed the resort amenities. It was nice having multiple pools and hot tubs. We liked being right on the beach too. Securing chairs by the pool was difficult but we made sure once we had them we stayed put. Overall the resort was nice without being pretentious or run down. Our only complaint would be the elevators. They run from the pool level on the lower level all the way up and as a result were always wet and messy. We'd definitely consider this resort again and much preferred to be on the northern end of myrtle beach away from the boardwalk/pier area.

Thank you for your comments,

There are some privately owned rooms on our property that are rented out through outside companies. We share the amenities on property, but the upkeep of these rooms are controlled by the outside rental company.

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your first stay at our resort. I hope this is the first of many vacations with us.

Sincerely,
Josh Kidder

Marvin was amazing at breakfast. Everything was great! The security guards were friendly as well. Pool stayed clean, everyone was very nice. Huge improvement from last years stay for sure. Grey job on improving customer service and upkeep of the facilities. I love the renovations

Thank you for the comments on our facility. The new brick around the pool area really freshens up the whole hotel. We did lots of renovations over the winter, but we get the most comments on our pool area.

The breakfast is always popular. I see you had an Omelet made by Marvin. He is an excellent employee. The only thing better than his cooking is his personality. We are blessed to have such a great group running the kitchen.

Hope we see you back again,

We went to Sea Watch on vacation for a week and really enjoyed our stay. The place was very clean and Convenient to anything you would want. The staff was very helpful with everything and freindly. It's always a joy to stay at Sea Watch. This was our 4th year staying. We will be going back. We have stayed with freinds and family. Fun for all. Rooms are always very clean.

Thank you for your comments,
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and the convenience of our location. We are lucky to be in such a quiet location, and still only minutes away from lots of shopping and activities.

We are always excited to see returning guests. Especially the guests who have returned 4 times! ;)

Hope to see you next year for Sea Watch Vacation #5.

This was my second staty at Seawatch. This time, I had a friend join me. I upgraded to a 2 bedroom. At check in, I asked for the North Tower, after hearing the South Tower was not so great. Well.. We had the South Tower, and had a unit that was owned.. I was very leary.

We got to the room, and it was wonderful!! love the layout, and it was wonderfully updated. ROOM 1105. the balcony length was huge!!! it covered from one bedroom to the living room to the other bedroom. We both had access to the balcony from each room! How cool was that.?

Even though we did not use many utensils, this kitchen was fully stocked...
Loved it loved it..

We did get a welcome call from the owner, which was great..
I forgot her name but she was nice, and I'm sure she was relieved to know that she had 2 adult ladies in her unit, and that we would take of it..

Breakfast was great!! Love the waffles!!

I noticed the lifts for the handicaps at the pools and jacuzzis..

Will be coming back again in a month.. Would love to have that same unit!!! It was perfect!! a bit high, but still enjoyed it~~

1105

Room Tip: 1105 for responsible adults.

We are glad to hear that you had such a good time during your stay. The South Tower does have a lot of the 2 and 3 bedrooms in it. A lot of people like to stay in the North Tower because the restaurant is located in that building. But the rooms in the south tower offer great views of the ocean and the sunrises.

I am glad you liked the layout of your room. If you want to try to get the same room as last year. You can give our reservation desk a call and they will put the comments on your account. Although we don't guarantee specific room placement, we will do our best to get you into a room that you will enjoy.

Our family of 5 stayed for the weekend in a two-bedroom condo unit. We had an ocean view room which, to us, was just as wonderful as an ocean front room because of the way the building was situated! We could still see the ocean while sitting in the living room!!! Major plus!! The room was very clean and absolutely beautifully decorated!! Very beachy!! The pools were awesome! We saw at least 5, and we saw 2 lazy rivers and I don't know how many hot tubs!! The only problem with the pools was that the water was freezing cold! Our two older children couldn't stand to stay in for long and our baby couldn't at all... She cried, it was so cold :/ so we didn't enjoy our pool experience very much. If the water had been a bit warmer, our older kids could have had a wonderful time swimming!

Thank you for your comments.

I am glad that you enjoyed your room and the hotel amenities. Each room is privately owned, so the wall decorations vary slightly from room to room. The owners like to put their own personal touches in the rooms.

We do have lots of pools. Actually, you did a pretty good count, it is 6 pools, 10 hot tubs, and 2 lazy rivers. I apologize for the issues you had with the temperature of the pool water. I hope this did not disrupt your vacation too much.

The outside area with pools, hot tubs, etc. was great for our 3 grandchildren. 1 bedroom with pull out sleeper was very small. We really weren't impressed. The beds were uncomfortable. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. If we stay there on our next trip, we will certainly stay in a two bedroom.

I am grateful your family enjoyed our pools and our amenities at the resort, and saddened to hear your sleep quality was diminished due to our mattresses. We work hard to ensure the highest quality sleep for our guests, and I apologize profusely this was not the case with your stay. Please contact me at guestservices@seawatchresort.com, and I will work with you to find the best two bedroom unit to fit your family’s needs.
