We stayed here two years ago, and noted some room for improvement on Trip Advisor. Good News! This hotel is much improved: the rooms we and our travel companions stayed in were refurbished and very nice. The location and ocean view are outstanding, given the very reasonable price. Also, the staff are very friendly and helpful. This is a good... More

Forget Myrtle Beach and discover the beauty of Litchfield Beach on the Hammock Coast (Pawleys Island). The gated community of Litchfield by the Sea is an upscale blend of town houses, private homes, and mid-rise condos. The oceanfront condos of Shipyard Village are stunning with two pools and a whirlpool spa. We stayed in unit A12, a large 3-bedroom unit,... More

This area of the coast is the location for quiet nature visits. I want to visit the friendly place to recharge my feelings. I pick the Litchfield Beach when I want the best experience of a vacation. The area has the BEST restaurants I have been to. Excitement is only a short drive up the road

As always, the best beach in South Carolina. Beach is always clean and never too crowded(summer months). Great accommodations just steps from beach. Plenty of rental properties to choose from also. Shopping and excellent restaurants within several miles.

Beautiful, private beach with no commercial establish,nets, just private homes. Wide beach, and due to it being in somewhat of a cove, co,pared to Myrtle, the waves were small and the beach wide. Dolphins jumping at sunrise, pelicans feeding along with the osprey. Unforgettable in every way.
