We are at Atalaya right now and I decided to see what others say the reviews here on Tripadvisor. I soon realized that there is no mention that there are 80 units in the building, 19 of which are timeshares traded through RCI and Interval International and 61 of which are privately owned and often rented through local realtors. All have the same 3 bedroom floor plan. I can only attest to the 19 timeshare units which are well maintained and decorated. The units are large with three large bedrooms and one quite small but adequate. The master bedroom is oceanfront with a patio door onto the balcony. The sound of the ocean in bed at night is sooo relaxing! The second bedroom has twin beds and the third and smallest bedroom has a double bed. The kitchen is large and equipped for 8 with the usual appliances and equipment. The living and dining areas have recently been professionally decorated and are comfortably appealing. A patio door leads off the living room. All units are oceanfront with table and chairs on the balcony.
Atalaya is on a quiet beach just south of Myrtle Beach but still on the Grand Strand. There are no bright lights nearby, just condo buildings. There are several restaurants/cafes nearby at Garden City Pier and Surfside Beach pier which cater to a variety of tastes. I particulary like Bubba's Fish Shack for fish 'n chips etc. and The Gulfstream, (down the same road and out onto a spit into Murrells Inlet) for a more upscale experience. The sunsets over the inlet from the Gulfstream are worth the visit and the food is excellent. The River City Cafe is also good with its verandah over the ocean.
We come back here every year and love it!
