We are planning our first family vacation at Myrtle Beach. We wanted a place in walking
distance of Family Kingdom(1/2 mile) and the Pavilion(1 1/2 mile). When we come to the beach
we do a lot of grand strand walking and we wanted to be close enough to leave the car behind.
We have 3 children and after many hours of looking up web-sites and reading all the brochures I
received in the mail the SeaMist looked like the way to go. It was close by and had free daily
passes to Family Kingdom Waterpark and Nightly passes to Family Kingdom Amusement
Park(this will be great for the kids and save us a bundle). We will be staying in one of the
conference buildings across the street at either the Jewel Building or the Sands building. I just
wanted to know if this place is as good as it looks in the brochures? Is it clean? Are the free
tickets for real? We figured up that if my family went to those places for the 9 days we will be
staying that it would cost almost 1200.00. How can they afford to give this away as part of your
stay for free? Are the pools clean? This looks like a great place for a family with lots of on site
things for the children. I also know how looks can be deceiving. It could all be just good
advertisement. Please let me know if there is anything major wrong with this place before I send
my deposit on Tuesday.
