There are many places to stay in Myrtle Beach but not all oceanfront hotels are the same. Only Crown Reef Water Park Resort offers absolutely everything that you and your family could possibly need or desire in a Myrtle Beach vacation. They offer over 500 spacious, ocean front suites with full kitchens, a year-round water park with tube and body slides, multiple indoor and outdoor pools and whirlpools, daily activities for kids, on-site dining, and pristine beaches.
I received accommodations to facilitate this post. Opinions are my own.
Best Oceanfront Suites in South Myrtle Beach – Crown Reef Resort
We arrived at 1am, check out a quick tour of the room.
The first place we went was the balcony! Each suite overlooks the ocean and has a private balcony with a couple chairs on it. It was the first place we went when we woke up and the last place we visited before going to bed each night. The views were outstanding!
Our suite had two queen size beds, which was perfect for our family. Below my kids are having a little bonding time with their cousin. We traveled to Myrtle Beach was a larger group of 12 -grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles – we were all there to enjoy our first ever multi generational vacation together. Crown Reef Water Park Resort has activities for everyone including the only water park on Myrtle Beach and accommodations for everyone including queen and king efficiency and deluxe suites.
Having a kitchen while traveling with kids is essential. While traveling as a group, it is a huge plus. We were able to make complete meals for our entire family in our fully stocked kitchens.
My sister and I were in charge of dinner one night. We made two types of pastas with vegetables, salad, and fresh bread. Why not? The suites at Crown Reef include full size refrigerators, stoves, ovens, microwaves, and all the dishes, pots, and pans to cook with!
Special touches is what Crown Reef Water Park Resort is all about like the kitchen towel swan at the kitchen sink.
The staff is top notch, professional, and super friendly. They were always helpful if we had a question, locked ourselves out of our room, or needed directions to one of the many amenities at the resort. They even washed our dishes for us every day – something I was very, very surprised about and much appreciative.
The resort has several on site dining options including a breakfast buffet in the morning at Grab N Go where you can also pick up items from the grill and coffee.
Be sure to wake up early to see the sunrise and for this buffet!
Another must is the Loco Gecko for casual ocean-front dining with a menu of pizza, burgers, wraps, salads, appetizers, and kids meals.
We enjoyed stopping by Loco Gecko for a quick snack as well as meals. The dress is casual and fun.
The food is delicious! There is something for everyone.
The pizza is huge and cheesy – a must while visiting.
The company was fantastic. We were making memories the entire visit. There is nothing like eating a kids meal with your cousin with a view of the ocean.
There is both indoor and outdoor seating at the Loco Gecko. It is the perfect way to chill out from the heat and fun of the beach for lunch.
Another fantastic way to come in from the heat is the Game On! arcade and Swirl Ice Cream & Sweet Shoppe.
Enjoy all of your favorite arcade games like basketball, air hockey, ice-ball, sink it, doodle jump, monopoly, race games, and more!
Kids will love the candy shoppe! Cool off with ice cream too!
Don’t forget the fun of the water park and all of the pools at Crown Reef Water Park Resort!
Crown Reef Water Park Resort is the only water park open year round in all of Myrtle Beach!
There is plenty of parking on the street side of the resort on multiple floors. Isn’t the Ford Explorer Platinum below stunning? It was my rental for the week!
