Family-friendly hotel with a lazy river and outdoor pool
A Grand Strand address and a heated lazy river and outdoor pool are major draws at the Myrtle Beach by Westgate Resorts property, but the children's water play area, Kid’s Club and many planned adult activities elevate its true family resort status. Studios and suites make it easy to go on vacation with the kids thanks to residential amenities like full kitchens, washers and dryers and all the extras. Parents love the fact that kids under 10 eat free with a paying adult.
Highlights
  • Oceanfront studios and two-bedroom suites
  • Kids under 10 eat free with a paying adult
  • Kid’s Club for children 2 to 12
  • Heated outdoor pool and lazy river
  • Close to attractions
Rooms

Guests enjoy beach and city views from the studios and suites, which incorporate tropical accents like palm-inspired lamps and coastal artwork. Even the studios have a place to make a meal -- each is equipped with a kitchenette complete with mini-refrigerator, two-burner stovetop, microwave and toaster. Suites have full-sized kitchens as well as utensils, dishware, pots and pans. Suites also come with a washer and dryer.

Features

A heated outdoor pool and lazy river and Kid's Club keep the kids occupied. Potty-trained children ages 2 to 12 are welcome to play video and board games and make arts and crafts -- all under the supervision of staff.

 

Adults, meanwhile, participate in the multiple planned activities on site, from jewelry making to Mary Kay facials and feet treatments. Fees may apply.

This place worked out great for us. We went in late September the facility was centrally located and very cost effective. Close enough for us to walk almost everywhere.

Beautiful relaxing retreat

My wife and I had a wonderful time at this Resort! Beautiful beach, plenty of poolside lounge chairs, one of the only Resorts with a pool side bar (complete with fantastic cocktails and drink specials)! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful! Good location, a little walk from the main hub but we loved it since it's such a gorgeous walk down the boardwalk. We would definitely return and recommend to other couples and families!

a little disapointed

We reserved a room with two double beds and got a room with a king size bed. The cleanliness of the room looked good, but did see two cockroaches...disgusting!! Ordered a pizza and it was never delivered and they got mad when I called down to see what the deal was. Bring your own coffee, cream, and shampoo. Maybe toilet paper too, they go all out and supply Scotts. There is a bs charge for resort stay which is horrible because a few times they didn't even have any towels available. The balcony is not private and you can see everyone across the entire hotel like a cheap apartment.

Great vacation place well located.

Everything was outstanding. only area of question is, I wanted to extend an additional day, the manager said it was okay, it would cost $384.00 a day for a sunday. Base on watch I was charge for the three day vacation, it was increased by 250%. to high. I have been a owner at westgate of olando Fla. for 9 years. That is my only area I was highly disapointed.

Poor Service

Restaurant food quality and service very poor. Service poor took almost an hour to get our lunch at the pool. Sales people kept trying to give you a sales pitch to buy a condo, very aggravating.

Vacation that bombed

This is a time share hotel. So the part where it says that you have a stove, microwave, and washer and dryer in your room are for the time shares only! The hotel never felt like it was clean, and the refrigerator that we did have in our room was a piece of junk! We had brought food because we thought that there was a stove, microwave, etc in our room. We had to get ice from the ice machine to put into the refrigerator to keep our food cold enough! The only nice thing about this hotel was the fact that it was on the beach, and there was a lazy river for the kids to play on. Most all of the hotel was in need of repair or they were repairing while we were there.

Great location but lacking in some areas

Timeshare facility with public access. Constant daily sales tours. Most of the staff was willing to assist when necessary. Tried to order room service the first night but was told they were too busy over the phone. Oceanfront property was great!! Kiddie pool kept my child occupied and entertained! Had a fridge inside the room but no microwave. Really? And the fridge was small. Holes in the bathroom walls. Housekeeping staff was friendly and helpful. Asked for a crib but was given a pack n play...and a broken one at that. Used our own pack n play instead. Friendly's restaurant located right across the street. Only owners in the timeshare could park in the lot directly in front of the resort. All others had to park across the street in a private lot. All-in-all, it wasn't bad. I've stayed in a lot better and a lot worse. An easy drive to Broadway at the Beach and the outlets.
