Recreation

Giant tiki statues watch over the new water park, a playful display that includes a shipwreck, perpetually sinking ship, giant tipping bucket, dripping palm trees and friendly sea serpent. The amusement ensues at the lazy river, which snakes indoors and outdoors under water curtains and mushrooms. During the summer, kids engage in supervised activities like craft making and pool contests. Adults relax in the sauna or grab a stool at the oceanfront Banana Boat Lounge. A full breakfast buffet fuels guests who like the convenience of dining out for at least one meal a day. The menu covers eggs multiple ways, fresh fruit, juices and bottomless cups of coffee.

Great getaway

We had a room on the top floor of the tower. It had two balconies, kitchen, enormous bed and incredible ocean view, and it was very inexpensive! The concierge was wonderful. She helped us find restaurants off the beaten path, plus gave us tips and coupons for shopping. The elevators are a little out of date and very slow with so many families up and down. But that was the only downside. We'd definitely go back again.

Great experience

I used to stay at here when I was a child with my parents on vacation. I loved it back then, and I loved it now. It had been close to 12 years since I had been to the Myrtle Beach area. I decided to stay at a place I was familiar with. I had planned on only staying one night. Ended up staying three nights and enjoyed every moment of it.

Average but great views

The property is showing some age. Rust is coming through the paint in many areas. You can see they are working hard to keep up with the other properties. We did not know why their was a pot to brew and nothing to put in it. No ice machine worked on several floors but we did not have a bad experience, it was just not a great one.
