My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. Rooms were huge with an ocean view! Parking was handy and the roof top pool was great!

We found the apartments excellent. We travelled with another couple and had adjoining one bed apartments. So, we had our privacy but could have meals together. Very clean and had everything we needed. Staff in the hotel was very friendly.
View of the sea was through other buildings but the sea was literally across the road so we were effectively at the beach anyway and a beautiful beach it is, with nice restaurants.
Nice shops in MB and good entertainment. Loved the shows particularly.
Eating was superb in MB. We ate in may places but our favourite was Golden Corral. There was literally every type of food on offer and all beautifully fresh, all you can eat and cooked to perfection. You can go to a fine dining restaurant but you wont find food as good as this and for a fantastic price. The place is always busy but plenty of staff and big enough to house the people coming to visit. As the place is so busy, food it turned over quickly and replenished fresh quickly. Try the mexican fare with home made chilli, lima beans, home made tortillas, sour cream etc. Or, the slabs of steak, cooked to order over flame,or the beef casserole, or....it's just endless choice.
Nearby outlet centres are good if you like shopping.
Pool is small and cold but you can use the pool in another hotel across the road.

Room Tip: High up room guarantees sea view, even if through other hotels.

We were pressured into buying into one of their tours and never got our confirmation letter .We are suppose to go 9/3/11 but one of there quilifications is that you have to have a major credit card.I have a credit card but it is part of my bank account Debit/credit I was unaware that there was a differance.They didn't mind taking my 150.00 off of it.
Now they want let me travel or return my money.
Beware of companies like this,

This is a clean condo with a very nice view and perfect location. Only negative was the wifi. You have to pay for it. There are too many hotels of lower star ratings that provide that for free to pay for it here.

We stayed for 6 nights. comfortable bed. Across the street from the beach. Great parking. Great staff. Clean. The only thing I would have liked to have had was a DVD player in the bedroom. We were there at low occupancy time. I would have developed more patience if I was there in the middle of the summer. Myrtle Beach is still cold spring break. Very few in the water. Great shopping. Rent a car if you want to see more than the beach. Taxis are expensive, 26 dollars one way from the airport.

We stayed in this property on a week that was given to me by my sister who is a RCI member. To begin with I would recommend this time of year for anyone who loves the beach but hates crowds. We arrived on November 19 and were literally the only ones on the beach that evening.

The property provides parking with each unit which is in a parking garage. It was nice to be able to park our car in a covered area that provided security.

The property is located directly across the street from the beach. There is a hotel in front of the property but our view from our balcony was wonderful. We left our door open in the evening so that we could listen to the sound of the waves.

Upon checking in we were directed to the coordinator of the time share tours. This is a Blue Green Property and I was aware ahead of time that we would be asked to do a tour. There was no high pressure sales nor did we feel like we were forced to take a tour but we agreed to and received tickets to the Carolina Opry.

Our room was on the 14th floor and was a one bedroom. The room was equivalent to a large hotel room. It had a king size bed and tv in the bedroom, a bathroom which was adequate, a kitchen that had a full size fridge, stove and microwave; a small dining area and a living area with a sofa and tv with DVD player.

One negative was the lack of updating on the televisions. The TVs are older and lack much selection in channels. Also the bathroom was very basic and did not include a garden tub.

The rooms were very clean and had ample towels including towels to use at the beach and pool.

The beds slept comfortably and there was only minor noise that could be heard from the unit next door.

The hot tub was clean and very enjoyable with the cooler evenings.

The property is within walking distance of a few restaurants and only a short drive to the boardwalk area which has Peaches Corner restaurant and a variety of shops. It is also a short drive to a variety of miniature golf courses and Boardwalk at the Beach a large shopping complex.

This is a good property if you are looking for a room that has great beach access without a lot of frills.
