“Nice experience”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We enjoyed our short trip a lot. The hotel is clean and maintained. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Our room faced the ocean front and we had a great view from the updated room. We liked the taste of the food at the Banana Boat Lounge with it's small selection of food items. We mainly spent the day at the ocean or under the palm trees at the resort with nice furniture which is not cheap plastic like at other places. You can walk to other restaurants within 10min. The density of food options in the area is more scattered compared to the hotels in the south of Myrtle Beach but we enjoyed the more community like feeling. The waves were awesome :)

Room Tip: We picked a ocean front room on the 6th floor. We would not recommend to stay on a lower floor becau...

My son and I stayed here for 4 days. It was great. We had a room on the 9th floor, oceanfront, so the view was great. The front desk employees were very helpful. They have an "indoor" pool, outdoor pool, lazy river, water slide, and 3 hot tubs. All of them were very clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable. They have a small arcade and free dvd rentals so we were able to watch 3 movies. If you're looking for a low key, reasonably priced seafood restaurant, we went to Duffys. Basic seafood but nice service. Concierge was very helpful and nice. If you have younger kids, this is a great place to go.

The stay the Ocean Reef was great. We are return visitors. Our biggest concern was the atmosphere with the "Bikers" who were present. It was unpleasant, scary, and often, obscene. I don't want my 7 year old daughter exposed to the rogue culture I witnessed, the language was terrible, (even she noticed it)and the violence. We will re-think our vacation plans and ho elsewhere if nothing is done by Myrtle Beach officials to remedy the environment. Ocean Reef employees did all they could, but they are not law enforcement. It was scary and a thug like environment. We are concerned.

This was our second trip to this resort and both times it has met or exceeded our expectations. The last time was three years ago and they have upgraded the pool furniture and some of the other amenities, such as adding a slide in the kids area. The staff is very friendly and the food is excellent, especially the breakfast buffet. Don't like some of the new regulations like not being able to have a tent on the beach and not being able to put up our umbrella too close to the water, but that is not the hotel's fault. All and all my wife and I really enjoyed it and will be coming back.

This was a very nice hotel. We arrived really late but the staff was really courteous to us. The room was a great size for the money spent and everything was really clean. I had never been here before so I was a little cautious (I figured the room would be nothing like the picture on the website). I will definitely be coming here again in the near future.

Well the first thing I would like to say is clean and relaxing place to stay. When i travel I always pack my cleaning supplies to clean up my room and change the beds into my own sheets. No need to do that because Mary in housekeeping had everything so clean and neat just like being at home, Washer and Dryer nice and clean and pots and all kitchen items well kept. My kids loved the pool areas and beach view. Loved my stay!!!

Room Tip: This was a large room for a family such as mom dad grandma and two kids
