“Get away weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

This is an Amazing Place to stay. It's close to all shopping malls and access to the Beach. The staff is so WELCOMING. This is a TOP of the LINE RESORT. We purchased 3 bedroom, 2 baths, full kitchen and washer & dryer. It also comes with 4 salons, fitness center, sonna, lazy river and 3 swimming pools, and 2 play pool area for kids, Cafe, Adult size Chess and Checker sets, ping pong tables, hot tubs. Make me feel LIKE a KING in my on Little Castle. We will be back to stay again. When we have another get away weekend.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny. It was Perfect.

we stayed here in 2003, so I'm a little late with my review, but from reading others it seems like its still a great place to stay!
The room was great and not cramped, even for a family of four. Kitchenette was so handy for inexpensive breakfasts and lunches. Pool was a nice size and the entire resort was well maintained.
the absolute best aspect was the location. Still a Myrtle Beach address, but far enough away that we weren't bothered by loud partiers....and this was during senior week!

This hotel is located right by the beach so that is perfect for beach lovers.My friends and I stayed here for the weekend ,and we had a good time.The hotel is very lovely and well kept.The pool area is also clean.We stayed on the 15th floor and had an ocean-view room,which was absolutely amazing for watching the sun rise and set.The only thing I did not like was that the wi-fi was very spotty and they have no electric plugs/outlets in the room.We had to unplug the lamp several times.One of my friends had brought an extension cord so that helped out a lot.Overall,we enjoyed our stay and will consider returning here on future trips.

Room Tip: Bring your own extension cord if you have to work/charge phones etc

The outdoor pool here is amazing and made our trip-have stayed at sister properties (including next door at the Long Bay Resort) but this by far has the best outdoor pool- it is huge, warm, and not too busy. The kids loved the shuffleboard court (although it was closed for a few days for renovations while we were there. We stayed in a 3 bedroom oceanfront condo, which was lots of room for 5 people- it was very clean and quiet, furniture was all in very good condition.

Stayed for 7 nights in a 3 bedroom unit . The rooms and bathrooms were excellent,clean and maintained for the week by a fantastic group of cleaners/maids. The included breakfast.....was without a doubt, just as good or better than most breakfast places. All the staff were fantastic,and kept everything running really smooth. I recommend this resort to anyone,just great

Room Tip: Most rooms have.a view of the ocean

Loved Ocean Reef resort. It was nice having a suite with two balconies, both with ocean views. We had plenty of room for the 4 of us and it was nice to have the fridge, oven and microwave. Washer and dryer came in handy too. The indoor water park was great for my little niece, but it did get crowded later in the day, so we opted to go early or at dinner time. There is a pool and water park outside as well. The staff was very nice and aimed to please--got sheets for the fold out couch right away when we called to say that they were needed. The breakfast buffet is very good, and less than 10$--you can't beat it! Only downside is parking can be tricky (but then it always is at the beach) and the elevators can be in high demand at check-out times. We will be back!

This review is a little late, we stayed at Ocean Reef during the summer of 2012. We drove 17 hours to go to Myrtle beach and it was our first time there. The hotel was in a good location, on the North end of the strip but we prefered the quieter area. The room that we booked said that it would be a ocean view, but we were disappointed in the fact that it was a side view of the ocean and our balcony was soo tiny we could barely enjoy the view. The room was clean but average in decor..the bathroom made a terrible noise and when we called down to ask for it to get fixed but nobody showed up. I surprised at how nice the beach was and i did enjoy the pool deck but it was soo crowded and not enough chairs. The beach offers umbrellas but at a huge charge, be prepared to sit on sand if you are not prepared with your own umbrellas and chairs as there are no lawn chairs etc on the beach.The lobby areas were high traffic therefore lots of wet/sandy carpets and quite slippery,and dirty. Wear flipflops. The food choices are minimal around the hotel but there are a lot of restaurants around,we ended up doing groceries for breakfast and lunch, made it a lot less expensive. Overall it was okay stay, but would probably choose another hotel next time.Nothing extra special about this hotel but i have never stayed anywhere else there so i have nothing to compare it to.

Room Tip: Make sure if you want an ocean view room you book the correct type of room, i would call the hotel t...
