“Fantastic family resort - exactly as advertised!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We just returned from a trip with our 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 year old boys. The resort is wonderful - the pools are amazing - clean and warm and welcoming. The beach was fantastic - clean and safe.
Our room (Oceanfront 1 Bedroom King Condo) was exactly what we wanted, with a fantastic view. The staff (front desk, housekeeping, bowling alley etc.) were all extremely friendly, and often went out of their way to help us.
Having the kitchenette was great so that we weren't eating out all the time. There is only the breakfast restaurant on-site (I heard rumors about lunch on the patio, but it was closed while we were there - the only explanation was that "we told the chef he could go home"???)

The beds were really comfy - even the Murphy Bed in the livingroom was good (better than expected).

One of the winners in our mind was the location of this resort - it was oceanfront, and a short drive from the attractions at the main boardwalk (around 5 minutes), and a short drive to celebrity circle (around 10 minutes) and so on. For some people, they might want to be closer to the action, but for us, we preferred the quieter end of the beach where it wasn't as busy.

The only real down side was that from Thursday - Saturday nights, they play extremely loud music on the beachfront patio. This is awesome if you don't have two little ones trying to sleep in an oceanfront room. It doesn't go too late - maybe 10 or 11? But it sounds like the speakers are right on your balcony. It's forgivable for the great view from the room, though.

Bring:
* oven mitts if you plan on using the oven
* some sort of over-the-door hook or drying rack or SOMETHING to dry your bathing suits and towels on. The shower curtain rod is one of the curvy ones, so if you hang them on that, the water just drips all over the floor. I was surprised that there wasn't one of those retractable lines or hooks or anything.
* your own lawnchairs or shelter for the beach unless you want to pay $30 to rent the great ones that they already have there. We were only there for a few hours, so I didn't want to pay that.

Helpful hints:
* Guest laundry - $1.50 to wash and $1.00 to dry your clothes, Great machines - they did a good job. The front desk can make change for you.
* For our room (7th floor, ocean facing), the internet was inaccessible from the bedroom, but worked ok in the livingroom.
* We came on the last week of April. The weather was warm and the resort wasn't busy - it was a great time to come.

Room Tip: Spring for the Oceanfront. You won't regret it. Choose higher than the 4th floor as the palm t...

We were looking for a clean, good location, and reasonable rates, we found it all at coral beach re s ort..........We were happy with everything and enjoyed our stay very much!!!!!!!! We were really tired from travelling so we were able to check in a little early; The check in was so smooth it didn,t take long at all.....We were able to rest . The beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed the balcony.and view.We really liked the location.....We didn,t go down on the beach because of the weather,but,it looked so enjoyable as we could see some in the water having their fun...There were no noise at night so we got a wonderful night.'s sleep...We were happy with the microwave,and the refrigerator, and the coffee maker as we didn't have to go out for breakfast unless we wanted to..We were very pleased at the rates for this time of the year.....We were very satisfied with our stay and would recommend this resort to friends and familily..We hope to return again when it won.t be raining so we can walk around and walk on the beach... It really is a beautiful resort. Itwas easy to find the good eating places and not very far from the boardwalk and mall.parking was very easy.,...Didn't have to worry about the rain as there wereshelter overhead...We were a little worried as we didn't see the rooms before we booked through booking .com but we were very satisfied.......

Just returned from 3 nights at Coral Beach and we loved it! There are several pools and tons of hot tubs. We spent the evenings at the oceanfront bar and had an awesome bartender named Janel (best drinks ever!). There was karaoke until 11 each night and a great DJ. During the day we could lay on the beach and listen to music provided by the DJ. Our room was spacious, angle oceanview and very clean. We have found our new favorite Myrtle Beach resort!

I chose Coral Beach because of previous reviews on TripAdvisor....My husband and I just got back from Myrtle beach after a 4 day stay at Coral Beach Resort. We have been going to Myrtle Beach for approx.20 years and just decided to try out a different resort. Well, overall Coral Beach was good but I've been exposed to better. We arrived on Friday and immediately got assistance to check-in. Well first I wasn't pleased with my room! I went to the balcony and palm trees covered the entire view of the beach (unless you stood up). This was the first strike. The second strike came when we went to bed about 10:30 pm. Around 12:00 my legs were on FIRE!!! I started itching and immediately jumped in the shower!!! I know it was bed bugs...I ended up sleeping on the pull out bed. So my advice stay away from room 204!!!! The next morning I immediately reported the itching to Cathy (representative @ Guest Services). She and Jean (guest relations) were EXCELLENT!!! They immediately jumped on the problem by calling Maintenance and the housekeeping supervisor!!!! My husband and I received a visit in our room from maintenance and the housekeeping supervisor (can't remember their names) within seconds. After inspecting the bed, we all came to the conclusion to get another room. All I can say is thumbs up for listening to customers and not giving us the run around!!! We were put on the 11th floor but I could see the beach, hotel was clean and I slept like a baby!!! So this is why I give this hotel an overall rating of 4!!! Oh yea......location, bowling Alley, restaurant helps with the rating too!!!

Room Tip: If on Balcony, will not be able to see ocean because of Palm Trees in room 204

We did not stay at this property but visited it April 29 to see if it was suitable for a visit in June 2013 by our daughter and her family. We visited late in the evening 10 pm and were fortunate to have had Patrick Alford show us two different rooms. Patrick took his time showing us each of the rooms so we could compare room size vs price . Since our adult daughter will be coming with husband and two children it was important to also get a feel for the hotel and amenities for a family. Patrick took the extra time to show us all of the pools the kids waterpark, bowling alley and arcade as well as the store within the hotel, lounge area and places to eat there also. After seeing all they had to offer families we immediately called our daughter in Ohio and they are booking a week in June. Thanks to a great associate Patrick Alford who went out of his way to show us around.

My husband and I went to Myrtle Beach for the first time. We chose Coral Beach because of on-line reviews. We were very pleased with our ocean front room. The resort was very clean and the staff were professional and accommodating. We would recommend Coral Beach to family and friends.

Loved our vacation at this resort. Weather could have been better but the resort was great. Close to whatever we wanted to do. Had an excellent time. Had 2 hot tubs one inside and one out. My 2 year old daughter had a great time. Right on the beach.

Room Tip: Oceanfront, a must.
