Since we are marriott rewards customers we usually book hotels through the phone app and when looking for a place in myrtle beach this hotel looked great! I guess I didn't realize at first that this was a hybrid of a hotel and condo complex but we were pleasantly surprised. We had a great long-weekend stay and will be coming back.
Pros: this place has beautiful grounds and pools. The complex is large so even though I think they were pretty full the weekend we were there it didn't seem too crowded. There is a pool bar where you can order drinks and food. The drinks were super tasty. The crowd seemed tame even though school is out and there were lots of kids. The villa was large and well decorated plus quiet and comfortable. We were in the building overlooking the main pool and ocean and I would recommend staying there. The beach area was nice and clean. This hotel is away from the main strip and so the surrounding beach wasn't too crazy. There are plenty of chairs by the pool. It's nice to have beach chairs and umbrellas to rent instead of having to lug a ton of belongings down there.
Cons: even though there is a pool bar with food available it's a little disappointing there is no pool server to allow you to order food and drink from your seat. Also we would have liked a few more restaurant choices. Since this is not a hotel resort I guess this should be expected but we still wish there could be pool servers and more food choices.
We enjoyed our stay and will be coming back for another long weekend this summer :)
