We stayed here for Mustang week this year. The hotel was nice with big lazy river and a couple slides. My two kids had a fun time. There was room was a little small.....Would have liked a pull out couch but it had a nice small kitchen. I would definitely start here again.

Not as clean as I would like. I cleaned going in. No bugs but just not up to my standards. Slides are not as described. My kids were done playing in pools and slides by 2 pm everyday. That stinks for them to be bored. Staff in restaurant acted miserable. will not be back. For the price you pay the... More

Spent 3 whole days at the resort without leaving once. Took our 4 and 7 year old. Purchased all our food prior to arriving. The rooms were nice. Loved having a kitchen to cook. Had enough supplies in kitchen to make due. Full size stove and refrigerator. My boys absolutely loved the pool areas. There are several pools hot tubes... More

Pros: great water park, music, ocean view. The water park/pools were the saving grace...kids had a blast. Loko gecko food was good. Cons: elevators are as bad as everyone says...people missed floors multiple times and I had TWO different people say they got stuck on one. We have 2 small kids and maids never made it to our room to... More

The hotel and staff were great. The only complaint was the elevators. Many other guests that I spoke with were also unhappy with the elevators, they were slow, no air conditioning and not all of them worked which made the wait longer.

Awesome resort. Staff is super friendly and responsive. Hotel has been updated and it is noticeable. The varying entertainment through out the day on the pool deck is amazing. So many activities for the kids. Best feature is the longest lazy river in Myrtle Beach and many other pools for kids of all ages. We have been staying here for... More

I will be the first to admit there are better places to stay at Myrtle Beach. There are also worse places to stay at Myrtle Beach and I've been in both. We were fortunate enough to get booked into a refurbished room. The kitchen was nice with updated appliances. The two a/c units blow nice cold air. There were 5... More

Staff was great! Some areas of the hotel/pool area could be updated. They need lockers at the pool area. Keep all valuables in the room or on you at all times when visiting the pool area. The bag we took to the pool area was stolen.

The resort was affordable and lots of fun for kids. The view and access to the beach was excellent. The rooms are a bit cramp, but clean. The building looks like it could use a bit of a makeover throughout the facility. The elevators were extremely slow and didn't look well maintained. The pools, hot tubs and lazy river were... More
