“Nice Property”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

This property is well kept and maintained. The room was clean and comfortable. The view (from the 10th floor) was nice. The location was convenient to many attractions. The resort should strive to incorporate more amenities such as activity programs for children. Overall, nice stay.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms on the higher floors for a better view.

2nd review of the Carolina Grande. Its gotten even better this year (not that it was bad the last time).

Improvements-
-Staff is even better this time. Very very helpful, nice, accommodating.
-Direct TV. We have 2 toddlers. Now, in the evenings when they wind down, they can watch Disney Jr, Nick, etc....Far more relaxing the last time.

Location is great for the price. Room size (we had a 3 bedroom) is incredible.

We'll be going back in July!

We are new Bluegreen owners who just completed our first stay at the Carolina Grande. This Bluegreen property is a great option when vacationing in Myrtle Beach. We stayed in a one-bedroom vacation villa that had a great view of the Atlantic Ocean
The villa had a large bedroom with a king size bed. Flat-screen TVs in living room and bedroom. A full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, full size fridge, etc. A washer/dryer and dining room table for four. Free wifi for Bluegreen owners seems to be a nice recent addition based on other reviews I read on Trip Advisor.
The living room was a bit smallish if you had more than two, but for two it was great. Small balcony off living room afforded the view of the ocean and you could hear the waves crashing on the beach. Four large beach towels were waiting for us in a nice tote too.

The property is located near the northern end of the Myrtle Beach strip away from the craziness of the main part of the strip but still in Myrtle Beach and near all the things to do.

The beach is across the road in front of a Best Western. This hotel's pool and other amenities can be used by Carolina Grande guests too. Note that the pool is pretty nice with some green space outside the pool area. The Lazy river is tiny and best reserved for small children. Carolina Grande has no fitness room and the one at the Best Western is outdated and small.

The property has parking on the first 5 floors with a nice sized pool and large deck on the 6th floor. Reception is on the first floor. The staff was among the friendliest I have ever encountered in any resort or hotel stay. Always greeting the visitor with a friendly hello and inquiring if they could do anything to make the stay more enjoyable.

The resort's elevators are painfully slow, but they know this and make some efforts to give something to do while you wait. The couch in our condo had seen better days sagging horribly in the middle, but was the only real issue.

Best hints are to avoid floors 6 through 9 as they are probably noisy being too close to the pool. Shoot for a room ending in 8 through 10 to get the best view. Plan to wait for the elevators and it won't be a big deal.

Room Tip: Floors 11 and up. Rooms ending in 08 and up.

We stayed in a one bedroom suite in February 2014 and really enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed our balcony with an only partially obstructed view of the ocean. The suite was modern, clean and well equipped and the location could not have been better.

My family and I stayed here for a week through our timeshare Bluegreen. It was our first time to this resort but we have been in the area many times before. The place was in perfect condition. Well taken care of. The resort was very clean and well-manicured. After unloading in the parking garage unloading area, we checked in. however, only one of our 2 rooms were ready. So we all dropped our luggage off in the one room and decided to check out the beach while we waited for the other one to be ready. We knew when we booked it that the resort is actually across the street and not directly on the beach. We thought that wouldn’t bother us. But once we made the walk, we quickly realized that we prefer the beach resorts better. No real reason other than purely our preference. It is a small walk but you do cross the busiest road in MB. If you forget anything or have to make many trips back and forth to your room, just be ready for some serious hiking. Could get pretty tiring after a while.
Resort says you get to use the property across the street directly in front of the Carolina Grande and that they have a lazy river. Don’t be fooled. That hotels pool and “lazy river” were nothing more than a kiddie pool and a small 20 x20 square pool with a few jets pushing some tubes around in a circle. If anything, it’s a lazy river for 3-5 year olds only. So count on using your pool more than that one. Carolina Grande did have a great pool. It is located on top of the 7th floor and has an amazing view of MB and Main Street. Very clean and warm. Other than the pool there wasn’t much else at the resort compared to other resorts.
Rooms were great. Very large and spacious. Excellent décor which was all new and updated. You can tell the resort was newly upgraded with new furniture and appliances. Washer and dryer were great along with a full stove and oven. No complaints at all on the rooms. They too were clean and we had no issues with water pressure or not enough hot water. Everything you could ever want or need was in the room. Wouldn’t change a thing!
Beach was great as well. Only compliant we had was fighting for beach space as it fills up quick. Each morning between the many people going out early and saving beach space combined with the local chair and umbrella dealers setting up rented spots, it left very little beach space. You had to get out there early and really stake your claim. Otherwise, you were left with sitting right on top of others and feeling like they were a part of your group. No cool. Plus, if you wanted to use an umbrella you had to stay behind the lifeguards which kept over 75% of the beach free. That’s only a quarter of the entire beach for people to lie out on. Understand it’s a safety thing and allows for lifeguards to have a great vision of the beach, but doesn’t make it any easier to find a spot.
Overall, I would recommend this place. Couples, families, retirees would all have a great time here. Again, biggest think to consider is your amount of travel from beach to hotel room. If it’s frequent, you might want to look somewhere else. Otherwise, this is a hot spot for some summer fun!

Stay there around Halloween 2013. Extremely clean. All the essential and extras necessities to use like blender, toaster, vacuum cleaner, washer dryer, etc. We had a great view of ocean (even between buildings). Will definitely stay again (already booked). Was in a one bedroom with nice size living room and dining area. Heard no noise from other rooms. Overall I give the resort A. Pictures on website don't show how nice rooms are. If I had to nit picks some flaws, parking structure is tight. I really had no complaints. Great location in middle of myrtle beach strip. Staying again for New Years.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floor room for better view.

Great location, views, and condo layout. We vacationed with 2 other couples at the Carolina Grande and could not have been happier. We each had our own unit which was clean, great space and a fabulous view. Would return in a minute.
