“Fun vacation with friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

We stayed at the Shore Crest Villas II last week with friends.
We checked in early and they were able to get us in.
The check in process was easy and while the Bluegreen rep was pushing for us to spend time with her we just said we had already made plans and she didn't push the issue.

The staff was very helpful and friendly.

The room was clean and had everything we needed for our 5 night stay.

The pool area was a nice option to the beach when you wanted one.

The snack bar by the pool had the basics to take the edge off.

Located near Barefoot landing was also a big plus.

Overall we had a great visit.

As Bluegreen Gold owners we were HIGHLY disappointed in the condition of the Shorecrest II room we had. Dishwasher was broken (was replaced promptly upon notification) , sinks didn't hold water AND didn't drain, carpet was DISGUSTING( my son's feet were BLACK with dirt!!!!), comforters were so gross it was sick to put them near your face( we brought a pack and play for our son so thank goodness he didn't have to touch the ones in the second bedroom. Kitchen pans are worthless......even Pam couldn't stop a grilled cheese from sticking. I bought a non stick pan so I could cook. Decor is tired and out dated. Bed was hard. Couch was gross and old. We could hear all the neighbors talking in their rooms, especially the kids screaming in the bedrooms, really nice in the morning. Room smelled like stale cigarette smoke when we first entered. Shall I go on????? Oh, I left ice packs in the freezer that I went to go get 4 hours after we checked out and NO ONE CAN FIND THEM!!!!!! Hmmmmmm.......wonder WHERE they could be???? Save your points on this one. We will not be back! YUCK!! Come on Bluegreen we expect better!

Room Tip: Stay away!

When we arrived at the room (we stay there every year) we were not very happy with the condition of the room. First the room smelled like bacon had been cooked there everyday and never aired or cleaned for that matter. Every year I have to request a topper for the mattress and every year they tell me at the desk it is supposed to be on there but never is. That part is getting old. Then the air purifier (which they didn't have last year) was flashing red and saying needs attention. It was so filthy and dusty it is a wonder it was even running. So we went back to the front desk and advised them off these things. They took care of them (except for the bacon smell). Well then we noticed in the master bath (toilet) that the floor was wet. So we called about that and advised them there was a leak somewhere around the toilet. We left after calling to grab a bite to eat. No sooner then we left they called to say can they come in. Yes of course. When we got back to the room, the water was wiped up. Well later that day the water was back and I mentioned to my husband that it looks like it's coming from the room next to us and once I told him that, he figured out where the leak was. The turn off valve for the water. He put a bowl from the kitchen under the valve and just left it. The maintenance seems to have gone down a bit since last year and these units were recently upgraded or something just about a year or 2 ago. We will go and stay again and even though we had those few bumps to deal with, it worked out ok. It is just a walk across a street (very easy crossing) to the beach. One other thing which really isn't the resorts fault, but the umbrella rental people put umbrellas and chairs out and block so much of the beach with unrented unbrellas. they are expensive and not many people rent them so why take all the space up for families, etc.? Liek I said I still recommend this place, a little pricey if you are not an owner or a member of something but a good place to go. Much quieter than just a little south plus barefoot landing is right there.

we are owners for five years.the one bedroom unit that we stayed in was functional,but needed an upgrade,and looked nothing like the unit that we bought from.the staff was wonderful,but do not go to the update meeting.it is nothing but a very hard sales pressure,the tell stories,they do not give you update info on your package,but torture the hell out of you to buy more.

We were invited by friends who are owners to Shorecrest. There are 2 buildings, we stayed off the beach, however, it was a 5 minute walk from our 6 floor room to the beach through the front building. The room itself had 2 bedrooms, master on suite with sunk in tub (no jets), king bed, 2 bedroom had twin beds with a bathroom right across the entry way, and doors that closed that area off from the living area which made it perfect for the 4 of us. All the basics were provided, however, we just made sandwiches, toast and fruit for breakfast, etc, and ate out for dinner. (A place called California's delivered fantastic pizza one night!). Nice dishes, silverware , pots pans, microwave, decent fridge...perfect for a family. The air condo was top notch. Staff pleasant.

Area of north Myrtle Beach is all condos, to do anything except for the beach was a significant drive (downtown). There was quite a few restaurants and shopping about a 5 minute drive, but the road was far to busy to walk from this area, especially at night. It was a quiet place, no problem sleeping.

THE BAD: We had items stolen from our room. Kindle Fire, friends gold necklace, and a coin. These few things lead us to believe they were misplaced, surely they will show up! After searching high and low in the room, we went to management . Someone had accessed our room between 2:07 and 2:14 pm when we went to the beach. Police report made, management stated cost of items will be reimbursed. What was concerning was the fact that management admitted to a problem with theft. I'm not sure what steps were taken. These thieves are smart in the way that they only took a couple things, again, we thought we misplaced. There are no safes in any of these properties to the best of my knowledge. This should change.

Obviously, this left bad taste in my mouth, but the place was nice in a great beach location if that is your priority.

It was our first time staying here & we were pleasantly surprised. The staff was very friendly & courteous. Our room was extremely clean & had no odor problems. I was very happy that we had our own washer & dryer. We were even provided with detergent & a sponge for the dishes & some laundry detergent! The kitchen was well stocked but we ate out most days. Even the coffee maker was great. We have small children & cleanliness is a must. We saw maintenane cleaning the pools, lazy river and surrounding areas every morning. They were impeccable. I felt very reassured letting our kids play in the pool and hot tub - both indoor & outdoor. They had activities planned daily for kids as well as adults. There were only a few things that could use some improvement. The parking spots on the deck were too small & the faucet in the bathtub was not working properly. The water was not flowing out of it as it should. So my kids couldn't get their bubble bath as expected. And unless we woke up at the crack of dawn and put our towels to "claim" some of the pool chairs outside we were pretty much doomed for the rest of the day if we wanted pool chairs. But the rest of our stay in our hotel room more than made up for it. Someone mentioned that the elevators were slow but it's really not that big a deal. I would rather have had a great room and a slow elevator than a crappy room and fast elevator.
