Help picking the right condo

Next year we are planning to go to Myrtle Beach. We will be staying in a friends condo. I have looked on the RCI website at the condo's we can choose from. The plan is to pick the condo we would want to purchase our own timeshare for. Need help from more experienced Myrtle Beachers on which condo to choose. We will be staying in a 2 bedroom (actually my friend has the 2 "mirrored" condos with lockout, so they are basically 2 1 bedrooms adjoined). We want the option of our home condo to be possibly a 3 bedroom, as our only daughter is getting older and will soon be taking a friend on vacations with us. My parents also go on vacation with us every year (hence looking into ones with a 3 BR option). Anywhoo....we want to be right on the beach, but not in a crowded area of the beach (so a private, quiet beach) and good for families (not party central). The 2 condo's we are looking at are: Club Regency at Regency Towers and Wyndham Seawatch Plantation

Any info on these places and your thoughts would be appreciated. Also any information on timeshares (good or bad) from these 2 places would be awesome as well. Thanks!!

I gave you some info in a previous post. Still stands. Read the reviews of both resorts.

Depending on your budget, I would say look at Crescent Keyes and Bluewater Keyes in North Myrtle Beach. North Beach Plantation is very nice but very expensive. In Myrtle Beach look at Kingston Plantation area. Good luck.

Seawatch Plantation is in a great location and good for families. it is away from the party central area and the beach is lovely. The Kingston Plantation is right near there and they have many options as well. Regency Towers might be in the crowded craziness area.

When we were looking to purchase a condo we visited and looked at a few condos at the SeaWatch - we weren't that impressed as they are such huge buildings and we felt like the pool was in the shade most of the day... the units really seemed to be worn a bit too.

You will just have to consider what is important to you and what you can put up with.

We ended up buying in the northern section of Myrtle Beach and love this area - we are inbetween Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot landing (15 mins to either) and right up the road is restaurant row so we have many options to dining. Our beach is near the residental sections of the beach so rarely is too crowded.

We bought in a condo at the St. Clements -which is too small for what you are looking for. But, near us is Ocean Reef and also Carolina Dunes with 2 and 3 bedroom condos - however, I don't believe they have timeshares....
