“Nice getaway”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We just stayed here over the past weekend. The hotel was great. Very clean. The 2 bedroom condo we stayed in was very roomy. Just remember to pack your own coffee, paper towels, etc. The hotel amenities were awesome. The small waterpark was great for kids. And we loved the indoor option away from sun. We also rented a umbrella and 2 chairs from the lifeguard on the beach. They cost $30.00 per day (9am 4pm). The hotel does NOT manage this and were even unaware of the cost, so I wanted to share with anyone trying to find that our prior to their stay. They sit these up early so be sure to get out there if you want one before they are all gone. Great place to stay. Convenient location to North Myrtle and Myrtle activities if you frequent both locations like we do. Breakfast is NOT included.

Room Tip: The condos are very spacious and having a washer and dryer for wet, sandy clothes was nice.

Just arrived today. Quick check in. Great location. Room was better than I expected. Parking convenient. Friendly staff. Great amenities. So far, so good! Looking forward to the breakfast buffet and open-air dining. Ocean front room is second to none! 10th floor view from balcony brings the ocean so close that it looks like I'm on a cruise ship!

Counteracting the length of our drive to get to this tropical paradise, the Ocean Reef was stunning and a much needed spot to lay our heads. The staff was very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Our room was beautiful and very quiet, other than the sound of the waves lapping on the shore (so soothing). The resort has all of the amenities to suit both the single adult and the multiple person family. We visited some friends of ours who stayed down by the boardwalk and while their hotel was substandard and in a much more highly traveled area, the Ocean Reef was in a quiet area of the city. Don't get me wrong, Ocean Reef has many restaurants, grocery stores and other necessary facilities within walking distance but one of the things we noticed was the lack of police patrols which points to the safe area the resort is in. We highly recommend to everyone to stay at "the reef".

Room Tip: The Oceanfront Efficiency is perfect for couples. Get the supplies and dine right on your balcony.

Dear Chris G,

Thank you choosing to stay at the Ocean Reef Resort. After a lengthy drive down to Myrtle Beach, its important to have clean and comfortable accommodations to recharge and relax, and we're pleased you found it here. I'll have to agree with your assessment of the property location. 10 minute drive to any major attraction in the area, a short walk to countless restaurants and necessity stores, and lastly, right on the beach! Your 5 star rating and recommendation is greatly appreciated by our team. We truly look forward to your return to "the reef"!

We opted to stay in an ocean front parlor on the sixteenth floor. We were hesitant about the height but were not disappointed. The larger room with two bathrooms accommodated our family so much better and the views were amazing. The room has two balconies so I could watch the sun come up without disturbing the others sleep. We arrived a little earlier than normal and were pleasantly surprised that our room was ready. Front desk clerk Salena has been there awhile and is always so delightful and even remembers us from previous visits. I understand that the city is getting some negative attention right now but I do not believe it should reflect on this hotel or it's employees. We were there when a lot of the bike fest participants were coming in and the hotel did do a good job trafficking vehicles and bikes so everyone could be accommodated.

Thank you for your fantastic review and 5 star rating of the Ocean Reef Resort! The parlor and executive suites are some of our most sought after unit types and it brings great satisfaction that you enjoyed it. Salena is an excellent representation of the customer service we strive to provide to every guest, and she will be thrilled to hear she made an impact on your vacation. Your appreciation of the effort put into our guest security during the bike rallies is a breath of fresh air.

I booked this resort for the weekend on a spur of the moment decision. The reviews were good and the beach front location was a plus.
We arrived early around 1pm and they checked us in before the regular check in time which is 3pm. We were very pleased that we had the 7th floor room overlooking the ocean. There are side units and suites also but front room was very nice. The unit had a refrigerator, an oven, toaster, and a coffee maker. The bathroom was very clean and there were ample towels.
We were given free DVD rental card and free passes to area attractions. We only went to the Mutiny Bay mini golf and used our one free pass.
Most hotels in Mrytle Beach have sales people to call the guests constantly but there was no pressure here. There was live DJ, music at the pool area all day Friday.
This place is perfect for families with small children, but my husband and I also had a great time, sitting around the pool, listening to music, and walking on the beach.
