My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Ocean Reef Resort. It was something to do for everyone and all ages. The rooms were clean and the overall resort was much more clean than most resorts I've been to. I can't wait to go back and do it all over again.

My golf group has stayed at the Ocean Reef on several occasions and the staff has always been pleasant and courteous. Rooms clean and well equipped. Offer great golf packages. Our favorite destination.

We traveled here for a quick weekend getaway and although it was Easter weekend and the start of 'Spring Break' season, we were pleased to find that it was away from the main strand where all of the clubs and activities were. The weather was not the greatest so we didn't actually visit the beach, although the hotel is right on the beach. We were able to enjoy the outdoor heated pool. There's plenty of activities for coders, including the indoor water park. Parking isn't the greatest (you can choose from a surface lot or not so well lit garage across the street). There's plenty to see and do near the hotel and in the area (Boardwalk on the Beach, the Boardwalk, Outlet malls, dinner shows, etc). The room was a nice size and direct ocean view, which was pleasant. The hotel,offers a buffet breakfast but we did not try it. There's quiet a few breakfast and other restaurants a short drive away. Starbucks at a neighboring hotel was a good convenience and there's DVD rentals and a gift shop that offers some general items that you may need or have forgotten to pack. Overall, it's a pretty decent resort. We would go back, but maybe at a less busy time of year as there were several large groups and families, so it was t as quiet as we would've imagined.

Dear Lockstar10,

We appreciate you letting us know about your recent stay with us! We agree that our location is perfect to be close to the attractions and action of Myrtle Beach, yet set back enough to be able to enjoy some quiet tie. We look forward to your next visit.

I took my kids on a short vacation and they loved the pools. Access to the beach was easy. The facility seemed clean and everyone was friendly. The only thing I did not like was the $100 hold they put on my card until I checked out. I thought that was unnecessary.

Spent 3 nights here and the place was packed. Parking was a real chore. The parking garage was being used by the hotel as storage. At least 30% of the stalls contained mattresses, furniture, lounges, etc. I'm not sure id like to sleep on a mattress that was stored in a parking garage for several weeks. It was a little creepy. Front desk staff leaves a lot to be desired. Pool area is small and PACKED. the room is spacious but is tired and worn. Mold was visible around the tub and toilet. The plastic balcony furniture blew around in the wind. It is a typical Myrtle Beach family resort. Reasonable and good value. Not at all classy.

Dear almyyrob2,

Thank you for letting us know about your recent stay with us. We appreciate all of our guests comments and use them when we update and renovate our facility. I do apologize for the inconveniences you encountered. We strive to provide superior customer service at every opportunity and I am sorry if you felt this was not the case during your stay. I would be more than happy to speak with you in regards to your stay, so please feel free to contact me at the resort. I do disagree, however, on one point. Our resort hosts a variety of families and couples and from the numerous reviews here on tripadvisor alone, we feel we certainly offer a "classy" establishment that has played hosts to thousands of satisfied guests vacations.

This is the second time we've stayed here. Kids love it. Lots of fun pools indoor, arcade and outside shuffleboard/ ping pong/ chess and checkers and free movies make for happy kids. Place is clean and staff is friendly. We will return.

Been here several time and it is always a great stay with friendly staff. Room are very clean. great pools. they have a big kid poo with a water slide. my nephews loved it. there is not a lot of traffic on this end of Ocean Blvd. You are close to the Pirate Voyage and the Carolina opry. About 10-15 mins from N Myrtle Beach. Great Place. I never want to stay any where else.

Room Tip: any room you get is great. They all have a good view of the beach.
