“Great Stay!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

I stayed at the Grand Atlantic Ocean Resort 4/13/14 - 4/18/14. The reason for our stay was two fold. First it was spring break for my daughter and secondly, she was turning 16. We had an absolute blast in Myrtle Beach! The Grand Atlantic really lived up to our expectations. There were 5 of us traveling and we booked a 1 bedroom/1 bathroom condo. The pictures and virtual tour depicted on the website were very accurate. We stayed in room 2003. The condo was spacious and well maintained, the ocean view was amazing. We had flat screen TV's and free DVD rental. The kitchen was very well stocked and had everything we needed. There were plenty of plates, glasses, silverware and pots and pans. We found a WalMart close by and saved money by cooking breakfast every morning and had dinner in 3 nights that week. The washer/dryer were perfect, we came home with clean clothes! The beds were very comfortable and the murphy bed and pull out sofa were comfortable as well. We didn't hear any other guests while we were in our condo. We felt like we were home! There was daily maid service because we booked the room directly with the hotel. We actually got the best rate by booking with them, as I checked every travel site. The indoor lazy river and pool were clean and warm and the hot tub was large and relaxing. There is a small restaurant and a convenience store at the base of the resort. Scooby's restaurant serves alcohol and had the best frozen strawberry margarita! The pizza there was pretty good too. Rachel at the front desk was great and the staff were friendly. My daughter had a fantastic 16th birthday with her best friend and I had to literally pull my sister in law from the room when it was time to check out because we didn't want to leave. We cannot wait to visit again!

Travelling with my husband, daughter and son in law and our 2 year old granddaughter.

We rented unit 304 on VRBO, everything was exactly as described, a 2 bedroom/ 2 bath ocean front unit with a beautiful sunrise view from the master bedroom. The beds were very comfortable and extra blankets were also provided. The kitchen had everything we needed and although we ran into an issue with the clothes dryer once contacting the owner it was taken care of quickly, thank you Dennis. We also noticed what attention to detail was paid to the grounds and building itself, constantly emptying garbages and cleaning hallways and fixing anything that needed it. VERY IMPRESSED!

I found the location perfect for us, a nice walk on the beach either way brought us to a pier and a short drive to the boardwalk made for a nice day.

I would come back in a heart beat and recommend to family and friends as well.

I would like to thank Kaylee and Trey for the excellent service they provided at the front desk. It was my parents 30th anniversary and we wanted a nice 2br oceanfront condo with flat screens throughout and it was delivered. I must say unit 1605 was fantastic. Enjoyed the indoor spa!!!

After reading, re-viewing and re-reading hotel reviews, we finally picked the Grand Atlantic Ocean Resort and could not have been any more pleased with our choice.

We stayed in a 4 bedroom on the 10th floor that was tastefully decorated and clean. Large kitchen with dishwasher, fully stocked dishes and glassware, toaster, coffee maker and all the major appliances including washer/dryer. All bedrooms had flat screen TV's and an extremely large one in the living room.

The view from our balcony off the living-room was spectacular. Sunrises and sunsets were amazing.

3 indoor pools, hot tub and an outdoor pool with easy access to the beach.

The staff was extremely friendly, welcoming and provided everything we needed.

Could not have asked for a nicer vacation or a better place to stay. Cannot wait to come back!

I looked at five properties in MB to choose from for our 3 day stay. I felt that the GAOR had all we needed. I was powerfully impressed with Josh, the desk manager, who worked magic to provide us (me, my brother and 90 year father) with a super nice 3 BR condo on the 4th floor. What a nice guy! Our trip was to give my Dad time away, given his dementia. We made use of all the facilities there which are very nicely appointed. While the weather didn't cooperate, we enjoyed the time comfortably looking at the waves roll in at eye level and watching some of the free movies offered. I would highly recommend this resort for its location, amenities, and general good feel of comfort away from home and on the beach...5 stars...!

Spacious rooms, we had a room that overlooked the ocean. Only had two double beds instead of a king but we made it work. No flat screen in the bedroom but apparently some units do, there is one in the living room. We got this hotel as part of a golf package with Eat Drink Sleep Golf. It was reasonably priced within the package and close to many stores and restaurants. Our card reader on the front door stopped working but they fixed it pretty promptly. After the first day if you want coffee just ask the front desk. If the internet is shoddy, reset the modem, in the unit it was located in the bedroom. There was a dishwasher and stacked washer and dryer. Make sure you wash your dishes before you leave or you will be charged $35. Full kitchen was also in the unit although we did not need it. Indoor pools are fine, hot tub okay, too cold in match to use the outdoor pool this year. Did not use weight room. Cool that you can park in the parking garage on floors 1-5 and walk right onto your floor if you are on those floors, otherwise just a short elevator ride away.
