I purchased a sampler package with Bluegreen two years in a row. This place, Carolina Grande, was great. It offered at lot of activities during the day so that you would become bored. It's one street over from the beach. You can see the beach from your balcony. The only drawback was the sales team. They were nice but very, very pushy for you to purchase a package deal. It would be an even greater place if they would tell their salesman/women to back off.

We just returned from a week-long trip to Myrtle Beach and stayed at the Carolina Grande. Two families each with 2 children ages 8-12. We rented two 1-bedroom condos that had connecting doors. Each condo had a small but fully functional kitchen, large master br with king bed, decent size bathroom and nice living room. Balcony had a great view of the oceand and we were able to watch fireworks from the balcony.

The condos were very clean and comfortable. We did not attend a timeshare presentation because our baseball schedule would not allow for it so I cannot comment on their sales pitch.

When and if we travel to Myrtle Beach in the future we would definately stay here agin.

I already posted this review, but it disappeared...hmm... the power of Bluegreen, perhaps. This was a nice enough place, but it was listed as "ocean view," and that's a joke as you will see from my pictures. I remember talking to the lady in the lobby as we checked in, saying, "The internet said this was an ocean view." She said, "It *is* an ocean view." I turned around and looked out at the same view she was seeing, which was a building. That's the level of brainwashing you will run into at Bluegreen places. They will also tell you if you buy their properties, they will "increase in value." They say this with a straight face, when it's one of the biggest lies I've ever heard in my life.

If you go, it's close enough to the beach, but just do *not* buy anything from Bluegreen. Believe me when I tell you you will regret it for the rest of your life.

Oh yeah... like all Bluegreen places, there's no free internet here, even though you can get it at the Super 8. They recommend that you sit out on the edge of your balcony and try to steal wireless from some of the hotels that care about their customers.

My husband and I decided to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary at the Carolina Grande by using points from our Blue Green sample packet that we purchased last summer. Our goals were to rest, relax, and enjoy the time together . . . goals accomplished.

The resort is lovely and in a great location, directly across the street from the ocean and within walking distance of restaurants. The staff was very courteous and friendly. Our unit was a one bedroom with a pull out sleeper located on the 20th floor. The 20th floor was great because we wanted a higher-level view of the city and ocean. The kitchen was fully equipped and had a stackable washer and dryer.

My only fault with the resort is the parking garage. The traffic doesn’t flow one-way. Imagine creeping your vehicle around a dark corner only to be head on with other vehicle. The unit did have some drawbacks for us. It was smaller than we imagined and from the Internet pictures. Our furniture was a bit dusty, but it was clean otherwise. I was also disappointed that the resort hasn’t converted to flat screen or plasma televisions. The cable was very limited to a few channels.

The unit may have missed the mark in some areas but we had a fabulous view of the ocean and city. Carolina Grande only has one or three bedroom units. Because of the size, the one bedroom is fitting only for a couple. I would not recommend a one bedroom for a couple traveling with small children, as everyone needs their own space.
