great family resort

Everything was as expected. Our room was on the 11th floor. I usually like to stay a little lower... See full review

Oceanfront in Myrtle Beach with more than 20 pools, tubs and fountains

Relax with a private balcony and views onto the Atlantic Ocean at Crown Reef Hotel in Myrtle Beach. Set on the sand, guests enjoy the ultimate oceanfront playground -- as well as the hotel itself, where more than 20 swimming pools, hot tubs and fountains dot the landscape. Meander down a 575-foot-long "lazy river," unwind with a cocktail at the Pool Bar and Grill, work out in the fitness center, experience dining at several restaurants and cafes on-site, or chill out in the video arcade. 

Highlights

                                                                                   

  • Perfect sunrises and panoramic ocean views from Crown Reef guest rooms, all facing the Atlantic
  • Countless on-site pools, including a 575-foot-long "lazy river"
  • Several on-site dining and cocktail destinations, or rooms with kitchen facilities for home cooking

Features

The hotel adds extra fun to its beachfront location with more than 20 oceanfront swimming pools, hot tubs and fountains, plus pools for kids only.

Last Minute booking

Booked at last minute, stayed at another hotel in Myrtle Beach last year, this one was so much better, the view of the ocean from the 10th floor was great. The lady at the desk was so friendly and had a room ready when I arrived. Would stay at the Crown Reef again for sure, enjoyed the pools, lazy river and hot tub.

Hotel

Every thing was great. All the shopping and dining is in the hotel. Makes it great when you dont have to load your kids and everyone up to find something to eat. We did not even leave the resort once we checked in. That's great!!!!

An exccellent Resort

I would recommend Crown Reef for families or couples. IIt has been several years since I had visited the resort. It has not changed. Still the same great friendly faces, clean room. It is located near the new "The Market Common". A nice place to walk, shop, eat and see a movie.

Leaving the Crown Reef driving to Broadway or Barefoot Landing there is a time saver way thru "the Market Common then t o go thru all the traffic and lights trying to get to North Myrtle Beach.
