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"

Mother's day getaway

Room, pools and grounds were clean. Room was located on ground floor next to parking deck. Noisy at night with vehicles and motorcycles coming and going.

perfect

We had a great time and the location was perfect. I wish that the glass elevator had worked outside our room. The room was spotless and the staff was very nice. We would probably stay here again and even bring the kids!

Family oriented place

The Crown Reef is an OK resort. The room was spacious with an ocean view. I could have done without the large cockroaches in it though. Loved all ofthe pools but couldn't get in the lazy river. It was over crowded with undisciplined kids. The hotel staff was very adamant about wearing the wrist band while at the pool area. But, when we go there half of the people were not wearing them. Who is not to say that people were just straying off the beach using the hotel pools. There was staff walking around but they were not saying anything to people without wrist bands.

Unplanned weekend away

We went to this hotel on short notice in the off season. The amenities are very nice, but in the off season some are not available (as expected). Since the price was reduced in the off season, this is expected and nicely done.

WOULD return but.....

With all the pools and hot tubs advertized, one would think that ONE would be inside cause it was winter! Of the 2 hot tubs open, neither were warm enought to justify freezing to enjoy. BUT the view from the 10th floor balcony for the morning sunrises was spectacular. Small things were problems.....like a broken deck chair. To give the staff credit ,it wouldn't have been noticed until someone actually sat in it. If the previous visitor didn't tell them, can't blame them. They replaced it quickly. The no butter knives, no cutlery and the insulation around the door (like NONE whatsoever) making the time getting coffee in the am uncomfortable,well, those issues were discussed with the staff and I have faith it will be reconcilled. I would return. The pluses outweigh the negitives. The staff were WONDERFUL. Kudos to them.
