“Home Away From Home.”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We decided to stay at Sandy Beach Resort this year for the family vacation. It was amazing. Great views, great staff, and a nice clean room. At first I was a little worried of there rates vs others due to how much cheaper they were. But when we got there and got checked in it was great. Very good central location in South Myrtle Beach. This is defiantly where we will be staying from year after year.

Room Tip: The ocean view rooms are great. You can really see the ocean good from the balcony without having to...

This was our 5th year staying at this awesome resort. Honestly, I would not stay anywhere else even if it was given to me. The rooms are clean, clean, clean. The entire resort has the most pleasant, clean smell no matter where you are. Rooms are fully equipped for all of your cooking needs. The washer and dryer in the room is a HUGE plus!!! All this resort needs is an on site restaurant and we would probably never need to leave at all. We love this place and will see you again, Sandy Beach in 354 days!!! This has become our home away from home every September. When I read the negative reviews , first I wonder if they even stayed at the same place we go to or are they really that petty about things and are the type that can not be satisfied no matter what. The things they complain about we have never had an issue with, ie the spotty wifi. Was not an issue once during our entire 9 day stay and we were on the 18th floor. Rude staff? NEVER. Dirty Pools? In 5 years have never seen that either. They have a very attentive staff and would not allow this property to be run that way. I can not say enough good things about this hotel. Can't wait til next year!!!

Room Tip: Restaurant rated terrible only because there isn't one

We had the BEST beach trip EVER staying at Sandy Beach Resort! They are so kind and friendly and the rooms are AMAZING. I would totally recommend staying there :) They have several pools, a HUGE kiddy pool and a lazy river. And being on the ocean is super great too :) LOVE this place!!!!!

Sandy Beach has the perfect location for everything. Within walking distance of anything you will need to refresh your body and mind. And just enough "out of the way" of the busy, noisey crowd that can sometime be a bother instead of entertaining. I will come back again and again because, all though I am just a long weekend visitor, they make me feel like I am a most important person. Customer Service is A1. Clean and safe.

Room Tip: When I come to Sandy Beach I feel the best floor is 3rd. Low enough to just barely hear the pool cro...

Stayed at the Sandy Beach resort for the last 3 years and we will be going back. Great rooms at a great value and the staff is amazing. The ocean front room we stayed in had the most beautiful view. Would recommend this hotel to anyone!

This was our second stay at Sandy Beach and once again was very pleased. Stayed in the older part which is the magnolia, room 619. Nice room but you could tell it was a little dated. Full kitchen which was functional but very small. The handle on the microwave was broken but you could still use it. Very limited pots and no pans. The water pressure in the shower was great. Needs a new shower curtain. Beds where fantastic! The room was very clean and that is always the most important thing to me. I do wish there was at least one more comfortable chair in the living room. The couch wasn't big enough for 4 people. Will stay there again. Staff very nice and friendly.

Room Tip: I don't know how the other floors are but our room was at the end. There were two smaller elevat...

Thank you for both your review and your repeat stay. We appreciate you giving us some feedback about your most recent stay so we can address these concerns and ensure that this will not be the case on your next stay. Sandy Beach Resort is comprised of two different contigous towers, the Palmetto and the Magnolia. The Palmetto Tower is our new tower with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The Magnolia Tower has been renovated and offers our guests clean, comfortable rooms for an affordable rate. The two towers are located within the same building and enjoy all the same amenities. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and we hope you return soon! Thanks,
