Reviewed April 21, 2013

Sea Watch Resort is a great place for a family vacation. The Resort is well kept and there are many pools, hot tubs and lounge chairs. The walk to the beach is minimal, and the views from the balconies include the beach and pool areas. It's a very comfortable place to stay. We've stayed there for the last two years and will go again next April.

Room Tip: We had a 3-bedroom unit that was great for 4 adults and 2 children. The unit was sunny and quiet...

I have been to Myrtle Beach several times although it has been about 7 years since my last trip. As a child my parents always booked a hotel on Ocean Blvd. As I started researching hotels I was concentrating on that geographical location.Honestly after viewing about 10 ads they all started to sound the same. I found The Sea Watch Resort through a search engine and was impressed by the appearance of the resort as pictured on their website. I was still a little hesitant because I thought the location was going to "out of the way." Upon arrival I was immediately impressed by the beauty and spaciousness of the resort. It was not at all cramped in and crowded like the hotels on North and South Ocean Blvd. We stayed in the North tower and had requested a room on an upper level for the best possible view. We arrived prior to official check-in time and was informed by the lovely young lady at the front desk that our room was not quite ready but that it was definitely worth waiting for rather than check into another room. We were given room 1516, a deluxe King suite. The room was beautifully decorated, chic color scheme and very clean. It felt much more like a condo than a 'hotel' room. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen fully stocked to actually cook in, the bathroom was spacious with actual HOT water and great water pressure. The living room was very comfortable. The staff at the resort were all very friendly and helpful. We did not eat at the breakfast buffet but my husband ordered a tray of chocolate truffle strawberries and champagne to be delivered on arrival and they were delicious. The location, I think is the best in Myrtle Beach, close to all Myrtle and North Myrtle attractions but with actual space to enjoy. Our stay at the resort was perfect from start to finish and we were both extremely pleased. We will definitely stay there on our next visit to Myrtle Beach. Thank you to all the staff for making our vacation so special

Room Tip: North tower upper level was perfect. Quiet with an amazing view. The elevators were very quick so do...

I appreciate your compliments for the staff but the real thank you goes to you for choosing Sea Watch Resort for this Myrtle Beach vacation. We are the on-site rental management company for the individually owned units and we work with all the owners to keep their units in nice conditions. Some owners choose to decorate their own units and 1516 is one who has really did a fantastic job with "chic" being a very good description for it. We are looking forward to your return and hope to become your Myrtle Beach home. Please tell your husband he has started a tradition with the strawberries and champagne as the next Sea Watch vacation will not be the same without them!

I have stayed at Sea Watch many times and never been disappointed. The hotel is in a great location. Less than 5 miles from all the shopping and eating you need to do. The staff is always courteous...always smiling. Whether it is the front desk, the consierge desk or the maid staff, you always feel important. The pools and hot tubs were heated perfectly which kept us all entertained. In four days I think the tv may have been on for 2 hrs total. We had all the amenities needed to have the feel of home. I have stayed at many other places but none compare to Sea Watch.

Room Tip: Have always stayed on the 12th floor and higher. View is great!

My best friend and I came to celebrate being friends for 30 years and our 40th birthdays. This was her first time to Myrtle Bach and she was very pleased.

We always ask for as high up as possible within the price range for an ocean view room. This seems to be the 17th floor. As my family has been he many times with that request and always get the 17th floor. North Tower.

Everything was clean, well maintained and well stocked. No musty smell or "wet feeling" that occasionally happens with a coastal room.

We did have to change the temp on the fridge, but that isn't any big deal.

Staff were fantastic, helpful, and very friendly. From front desk to cleaning staff.
There was someone next door that decided to take a shower at 3 a.m., which woke my light sleeper friend. Overall, our sleep was good. Comfortable beds, extra blankets and pillows provided.

We felt safe leaving the balcony door open most of the time to enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean and kids playing at the pools. One morning we did have to keep it shut as a different neighbor was smoking and the wind was blowing our direction. Again, can't control that, but as far as I know it is a non-smoking resort.

We did not use the pools or the lazy river on this trip, but I can say that my kids LOVE them when we come as a family.

We also did not spend the extra little bit for the resort's breakfast, however, we have had it before and it is delightful.

Once again, SeaWatch is tops on the list of resorts to stay in Myrtle Beach.

Sidebar: My husband is there now for an all-star cheerleading competition (he takes photos for the gym). They were told to stay at another MB resort... If things go badly, he knows where to go if he needs to change resorts. The one he is at doesn't have good reviews and I already know of one parent who stayed for 2 hours and changed places...

We enjoyed our stay and will definately go again. Great property. The pools were very clean and the ocean is a your doorstep. The rooms have all the amenities to keep your costs down. The gift shop had everything you could want. The breakfast buffet at the restaurant was excellent.

This is second time at Sea Watch, our third time in the Myrtle Beach area. The location is easy to get to, and the accommodations were just right. The pools are great, and give you choice as the sun moves across the sky as some of them become shaded. If there are more than 2 in your group(any kids), get at least a two bedroom unit...the one bedroom units are just right for a couple but I think would be too small for a family, even if the kids are small.

Room Tip: One bedroom ocean front view good for couple but would be tight with additional people.

The property was very nice, directly on the beach. However, we were not greeted warmly at the check in desk and had to wait in the car for an hour after traveling over 20 hours and pre-registering. When we got to the room it was a disappointment to say the least. The decor was not welcoming or restful. Oranges and browns, greens and yellows - 1970's. The rug had an unpleasant odor and was visibly worn. The mattress also had an odor which made it impossible to sleep on. We called 3 times to request a different room. The first 2 times we were told all the units were the same but the 3rd call (when we said we were checking out) resulted in someone arriving at our room immediately with keys to an upgraded room. This room had a nice hardwood laminate floor, soft blues and off whites for colors, the couch was comfortable, and the mattress was new. The kitchen was beautiful with a marble counter top. A huge improvement! We did stay for our booked time and were very happy with the remainder of our vacation. The proximity to the beach is awesome and the pools were clean and well maintained. I would recommend this property to others with a note of caution, look at the room before checking in.

Room Tip: Look at the room before you accept the keys!

Thank you so very much for taking the time to let me know about your past stay. I am tremendously sorry that your room was not available before our posted check in time of past 3pm for one bedroom units and 4pm of our larger units. Our housekeeping staff tries hard every day to ensure a quick turnaround time .If your plans are to check in prior our stated check in time, please contact the hotel on the day of check in (prior to arrival), and we let you know what is available to check in early. Due to high occupancy we may not have any available rooms. If that is the case, we will gladly provide parking passes and pool wristbands, so that you and your family may enjoy all the amenities Sea Watch Resort has to offer until your unit becomes available. I was also glad to hear we were able to find the right room for the rest of your stay. We hope to see you and your family soon!
