“First trip, and would come again!”
Reviewed July 15, 2010

We chose Myrtle Beach for our vacation destination because a trip to the gulf was not possible this year. I always consult TripAdvisor when going to a new place because I value what other people have to say. I read so many wonderful reviews about The Ocean Reef Resort. The reviews were right on the money! It was an excellent choice. We had picked an oceanview 1 bedroom room for the July 4th and 5th. It was perfect for the kids to watch the fireworks. There were more than enough for them to see. We had booked a jr. king suite for the remainder of the stay. It was a very nice condo, I believe you would call it. The pool areas were wonderful for both kids and adults. It was safe and very clean. The hotel staff was exceptional in every area of the hotel. The breakfast buffet was excellent. We adored the hostess who always remembered my children each morning and greeted them with a smile. The beach was clean and right in front of the hotel. If you stay here, you won't be disappointed. I would certainly stay here again!

Three years ago we brought our daughter,son in law and their 3 small children. Our group has multiplied each year. 3 more families joined the fun last week. There was something for everyone. Our group used the gym, the pools, the bar , and the restaurant. Our rooms ranged from a one bedroom to a 3 bedroom and were all very pleased. It is very convenient to groceries, entertainment, and right on the beach. Well worth the 12 hour drive.

I came to the Ocean Reef resort as a preview to a trip that I'll be doing in Sept. 2010 and brought a friend who is also a client for this trip. This hotel is everything that the promotions states. On the beach, not far from restaurants, pools everywhere and other attractions. They allow me to view all the room types that I had requested and ALL the rooms were great.
I can't wait for Sept. and spend bring the kids. I truly recommend this hotel for a family getaway or vacation.

Stayed at the Ocean Reef Resort this past weekend for our 10th Anniversary, and we made it we made it a family trip with our 4 year old son and 7 year old daughter. To say we had a great time is an understatement. The staff, and forgive me, because I can not remember their names, especially the front desk, were great. The kids loved the water park, the lazy river, the hot tubs, the pool and the beach. They couldn't get enough, enough we live in Virginia Beach.

Our room was great, a King Suite with an Ocean View, and it was a great view! Much more room than we expected also. Check in and out was easy, the girls at the desk answered all our questions about places to eat, to putt putt, to where to set up a Spa day for my wife!

The bartender at the pool, working along side the grill at the pool, was very busy, but very friendly and willing to go the extra mile for everyone they saw.

This resort is truly a family destination, please eat their breakfast buffet also, great food and service. Flamingo's is around the corner, and worth a dinner trip. Great food and atmosphere!

My family had a wonderful time here. The pools were great, the kids loved them. The pictures that are online show just how pretty the hotel is. The store inside the hotel was not bad priced and the view to the beach was great! We were on the seventh floor with small children all the bacony doors had three locks, I loved it. If you did not want to leave the hotel you did not have to. We had all you can eat breakfast and it was really good. The lobby and down stairs was very nice. They had a ton of stuff for the kids to do it was great! We also got to the hotel early, our room was not ready but they let us check in and use the bathrooms and pools until our room was ready. Everyone at the front desk was very helpful and nice. We will be back for another stay!

I had mix feelings due to the reviews i have been reading, for example some ppl were stating it was a great hotel/resort, than a few weeks later everyone talk about how dirty the place was. well i booked it anyway, and we were on the 11th floor. very nice we had a ocean front room, the balcony is private, everything seem to be clean. the only problem really was the microwave didnt work, but it wasnt a problem due to we ate out everyday. Another con would be the elevators were a little slow at time but who cares right :) and i must say the pools were nice, and i really like how you can layout on the lawn. so i would stay again.

We had two families traveling together (4 adults, 4 teenage boys and 1 small girl) and rented a 3-bedroom condo which included one king, one double and the third room had two doubles (two bathrooms). There was also a sofa bed. Size of condo was perfect. Included a full size kitchen which included everything we needed. We had deck with a side view of the ocean. I don't think an oceanview could have been much better. The kids enjoyed the lazy river and two pools. The adults enjoyed the choice of 4 hottubs after a day at the beach. The beach, by the way, was right out the door. It was clean and never too crowded. Anything we needed, the staff was there to oblige. We were unable to find a better price anywhere. The only downfall was that the free internet was nonexistent. It was free but you never could connect. Not sure if it was overload or what. Would we go back? In a heartbeat.
