The entertainment poolside everyday , was different , from steel drum band to sax player and Dj's. Some where better than others . Small wait time to check in on Sunday.... More

I have a family of 7 and we all slept comfortably in one room. This is not common we usually have to get two rooms but the rooms here were so spacious. The amenities here were amazing. The slides were fun and it wasn't to crowded. If your looking to have a great vacation with or without kids this is... More

This resort had everything advertised and more..True it was a little dated but very clean...We had 4 women in a double queen efficiency and request extra towels, received them with no problem...We didn't need to pay extra for the wet n wild because they had enough activity readily available. My first time in Myrtle Beach was a lot of fun.

Stayed at the Crown Reef for a week from August 19th to 26th. We had requested an updated suite above the 5th floor and asked if we could stay in tower 3 which is the tower furthest south. We stayed in room 841 and it found it to be surprisingly clean considering the first impressions you get when checking into... More

We went to this resort to spend some time with son and grandkids. For the most part, it was very enjoyable. We all enjoyed the pools and lazy river. The beach was awesome. We were a little disappointed in our room. Ours definitely needed some updating, but our sons room was very nice and had been updated. Both rooms were... More

Waterpark is great for kids first timer, after second time, kids gets bored. Beach front, launch chairs & umbrellas has to be rented, not free or charge. Resort condition is aging, avoid tower 2, lower levels dirty, lack maintenance. Pricing-pricey.

Stayed here recently as part of a family bus trip. Unfortunately, my assigned room, 712, was right across from the trash/ electric rooms, so it wasn't cool that my stay consisted of staff and piles of trash hovered outside my front door. I would not accept this room again and in fact in my opinion, there shouldn't be a guest... More

Really nice resort, close to the beach with a great ocean view from our room. Best parts of the resort were the water slides, steps away from the beach, the convenience of the bars and good daily activities for kids. The arcade was also nice as well as the number of pools. The drawbacks were that the staff at the... More
