This was the first time that we stayed at Crown Reef, but it will not be the last time that we stay there. We had a wonderful vacation thanks to Crown Reef. Beautiful ocean view, great waterpark (especially the lazy river), on the beach, nice room, lots to do, and no issues

Dear NicksMimi What a fabulous review!! We are so thrilled to read that you had such a wonderful time while staying with us. Did you know that the Crown Reef has the longest resort lazy river? Yes... it is a 575FT lazy river! With so many awesome things to do. The Crown Reef is the place to be when vacationing in Myrtle Beach.

As a avid Trip Advisor writer and follower I'm sharing our experience of this resort from 2 different stays that were only a week apart. My husband and I chose to take our grandchildren on a quick beach trip - first trip was 3/10/19 to 3/12/19 - our room was Tower 3 - Rm 943

My three teens loved the water park, especially the slide. The heated pools & saunas were amazing. You have everything you need on site. Food, tiki bars, and the kids loved the game room. Great time for all!

We stayed here because two of my sons were participating in the IKF production being held at the hotel. We enjoyed our stay other than a few minor maintenance issues in our room. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were very neat and clean.

When is the construction supposed to be finished?
We hope to have all work done in the next 60 days, weather permitting. As always, we work hard to minimize the impact on our guests!

Hi Crystal, Having a car or using Uber is a great way to see the area, and keep in mind that we have delicious dining and a waterpark right within the resort, and convenient beach access. We also have Damon's oceanfront dining, Downwind Sails boat rentals, and a really cute art museum right next door to our oceanfront resort.

Our oceanfront resort is 2.4 miles from the southern end of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. Downwind Sails water sport rentals operate right outside our resort on the beach, and Damon's oceanfront restaurant and the art museum are right next door. The Market Common is a lovely area with shops and restaurants, and it is 1.9 miles inland. Don't forget about our year-round waterpark, arcade, oceanfront pools, and year-round restaurant that are right here at our resort!

"I like tower 3 rooms, preferably the far right. That's the end of ocean Blvd."
"Stay at least 3 or 4 doors from elevator. Bedroom are at entrance, so can be noisy."
"If you have small children choose the Splash Zone and you will be able to easily access the water park."
"Its a good stay for the price. Can get a little crowded and rooms a tad outdated."
"Stay elsewhere"
