My wife and I had looked on tripAdvisor and from reviews decided to go to Ocean Reef. we didn't have a reservation we just walked in and asked for a ocean front room. They allowed us to see our room before we paid for it. We loved the size of the room and the view.
We feel we now have a place to go when we want to get away to the beach. Everyone there was friendly and helpful. The house keeping lady spoke to us in perfect English. That hasn't happened in a long time.
Can't wait to return.

Having stayed at Ocean Reef before we went in knowing what to expect, a relaxing weekend. However this stay surpassed all of our expectations. We upgraded a bit this time due to the fantastic winter rates to the largest 4 bedroom / 3 bath unit. I called ahead of time to try and confirm a room on a higher level for the view. The front desk attendant that took my call was very knowledgeable and was able to get us on a higher floor. This particular room had recently been repainted and was in top notch shape for our stay. The kitchen was spacious enough to prepare meals and a dinning area to enjoy them. Three of the four bedrooms had access to the generously sized balcony. The living area featured a wall mounted LCD television and leather recliner that quickly became my choice of seating. We are looking forward to returning to Ocean Reef this spring as it has become our choice for accommodations in Myrtle Beach.

Room Tip: The 4 bedroom oceanfront unit we stayed in was an angle view. We all felt that this did not subtract...

New it was going to be great the minute the Front Desk person greeted me. Halls, elevators and room were pristine. Loved the option of kitchens, including in room washer and dryer. Convenience of restaurant Bar. Indoor and outdoor pools with lazy river and awesome slide. Very friendly and attentive staff. Enjoy.

We just spent our 5th year at Ocean Reef Resort in Myrtle Beach at New Years. We stayed in a 4 Bedroom Condo. Loved it. The condo is spacious and accommodating for family and friends. We enjoyed playing games around the spacious dining table and a great New Year's Meal. The staff did a great job from reservations to housekeeping. The unit was clean, well stocked. We had a problem with the wireless internet reception and Craig assisted us pronto and we were again connnected.

We often visit Myrtle Beach between Christmas and New Year, and during the week following Easter. We've almost always stayed at another resort property, so this was our first time at Ocean Reef. It was better than where we usually stay. We had a 2-bedroom condo in the south tower for a week, with a great view of the ocean. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped with the essentials and a full size refrigerator. The master bedroom was large and had a king bed with a bath, dresser, TV, and a closet. The other bedroom had two full size beds, TV, closet, and dresser. The sofa in the living room has a fold-out bed (which we didn't use). The condo had a compact stacked washer/dryer (which we also didn't use). Everyone on staff we encountered was open, friendly, and helpful. The only negatives were the bedroom TVs were not flat screens and the breakfast buffet was pretty basic. Nonetheless, we are already planning our Easter visit to Myrtle Beach and will be staying at the Ocean Reef.

Room Tip: I think all rooms open to the outside.

This visit we opted for an oceanfront King Suite. We were on the third floor as there were no upper floors available at check in. The view was tremendous. The kitchen was too small to actually cook in. We had brought our cooked meals from home and only needed to use the microwave. The fridge was a small kind without a freezer and there was no dishwasher. It's ok for a few nights but not a week unless one wants to eat out all the time. The room and bath were clean and reasonably comfortable. The plumbing needs assistance however as the toilet keeps running and making noises. The shower handle just kept turning around several times before hot water appeared. Also a great deal of water still came out the tub spout when the shower was on and the tub filled rather quickly. We had a rain storm and the porch leaked from the unit above making the carpet wet. You could actually seek where small chunks of ceiling had fallen in the past. There were cracks and signs of previous repairs. I didn't care for the night I was awakend at 11:30 by some young people running in and out of the surf and back to the jacuzzi. I've never seen security here but perhaps that is because we only visit in December. The staff was very pleasant upon check in and check out. I would stay here again but would like to try something a little more updated without an updated price.
