“Not as nice as in the past”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

This is our 4th visit here in the last two years but was not as nice a visit as in the past. Great location and nice employees, nice pools and easy access to the ocean too but our room was kind of "broken" on this visit. Stove and fridge did not work right and in general, at least in this room, things were kind of worn out. We stayed here last October and our room was much nicer than this vist so it may be that just some rooms need some sprucing up. We'll probably come again but might have to insist on a nicer room if we run across this again. Part of the reason we like this location is because it is only a block or so from our favorite restaurant Flamingo Grill and a nice Food Lion. Nice Kroger about 2 miles away too!

This would be my fourth time staying at the Caravelle & once again it was a great experience! This was a Spring Break trip for my little sisters & their friends & overall we had a great time. The gentleman at the front desk at check in & check out was very professional & helpful. The rooms were clean, & we had the best housekeeper! The only issue we had was when we arrived our bathroom door was literally hanging off the hinges. I called the front desk & they had maintaince there less than ten minutes. After they arrived they spent maybe ten minutes in our room & the job was done. I wish we had a slightly larger kitchen area, but other than that it was affordable, nice, & comfortable. I will definitely stay here again.

Been going to Caravelle for several years now and this is the first time I have been disappointed in our room. It was clean but not updated like other rooms I have stayed in. Maybe I was spoiled but it seems if they are all the same price then the quality should be the same also.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are really nice.

We just checked out today and we were VERY pleased with our experience there! My son loved magic al and his amazing balloon animals, he would see my son at the pool and call him by name (which I thought was amazing with the amount of kids that were staying at the resort) and give him a high five, and even gave him a dollar to play in the game room one day. It didn't take long for my 3 year old to warm up to him, he was fantastic! All of the interns working with the kids activities were great as well! My son really liked the balloon animals, tie dye tshirts, and the dj that was at the pool one day.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by Jay, who was very friendly and explained everything that the resort had to offer and where everything was located. We were very happy with the first room we were given, but wanted a better view and within 15 minutes, Marcellus was upstairs with a key for another room, which we loved everything about! We booked an executive king suite, but stayed in the same room with double beds and a great view. Anytime we needed anything, everyone on staff was there to
help and seemed to really care about the quality of our stay. Thank you very much caravelle beach resort....We had a great
vacation!

I did extensive research on finding a place located near the activities we wanted to do. This hotel was 10 minutes in good traffic from all central attractions. Was worried about the reviews concerning dated rooms, exact opposite, our room was clean modern and well stocked. Maybe a slightly larger tv but no big deal. Upon arrival we checked in and found our room to be on 1st floor which I requested not to be, BOBBY MUSIC greeted us very pleasant and immediately rectified this with a great room on the 10th floor, I had read reviews on tripadvisor about him, all true , a fantastic person who goes above and beyond, I would love to work with 10 of him. He even called later to see if we were ok with room.TIPS on resort, bring a small car the parking garage is tight to park !!! Use the oceanfront elevators much faster, indoor pool great, lots of kids at outside pools was nice to relax in pool indoors, breakfast buffet excellent and good price, HUGE TIP avoid first floor you will not see ocean with all plant growth, beach access for late night strolls a bit difficult gates were locked. Found entire staff friendly and helpful never asked twice for anything even up to last minute printing my plane boarding passes when the free computers wouldn't allow it the front desk stepped up and quickly handled my request. AGAIN people going a bit above and beyond made the difference.Absolutely would stay again.

Room Tip: avoid first floor

Booked on "hotel tonight" app for $100. Chris at check in was very helpful. He asked about guests in my party and then suggested activities based on what I told him. He was very knowledgeable about the resort and gave me all the information I needed to know about the resort. Had to wait quite a long time at check in because computers were down. I'm not sure if that is why we were placed in an oceanfront, top floor room. Room was modern and clean. Very happy with the room! Pools a little small. Great water park if you have smaller kids. Overall, a great resort. Also loved the quiet beach as compared to other spots on myrtle beach. My kids and I can't wait to come back.

Overall, entire place needs to be upgraded. Room and most components within the room, (TV, Couch, Table and Chairs, Fridge, etc.) were all old and outdated. Felt like I was back in the 1970's. View was nice but sitting on the balcony was uncomfotable because of plastic chairs and a small blacony. The only thing this hotel had going for it was that the staff was nice. Big deal...I didn't spend the weekend with the staff.
