“Older but still has a lot of life”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

This is the first time that I stayed at this resort and I enjoyed it overall. The Sands Ocean Club is not brand new and it is need of some updating but all that aside the amenities and location is worth the stay if you enjoy staying in a quiet area.

The resort is convenient to outlets and many restaurants. It is perfectly located between Myrtle and North Myrtle with quick drives to Calabash as well.

My only complaints were A) the noise from the upstairs neighbors (who obviously were partying on Thanksgiving) and B) the few remaining things that needed to be updated (the bathroom needed some work).

We visit Myrtle Beach every Thanksgiving, but this was our first stay at Sands Ocean Club. We didn't see much of the staff, but when we did they were helpful. Our two bedroom condo in the Executive Tower Suites was run down, with nasty carpet, cigarette odor even though our whole floor was supposed to be nonsmoking, badly stained ceilings. The "full kitchen" didn't have an oven, so some of our groceries (pizzas, cinnamon rolls etc) were wasted. We couldn't find a luggage cart when we arrived or when we left, and other guests were wandering around looking for them too. The beach is very nice, and the marsh behind the hotel is fun to walk along. The executive tower suites buidling sits back from the beach a bit; it looks down on a few unsightly rooftops, and the view north up the beach is blocked by the north building which sits closer to the ocean. No coolers are allowed at the pools...although we broke that rule because although the weather was sunny and in the 70s, nothing was open - not the pool bar, not the convenience store or spa or surf shop. The outdoor pool wasn't cleaned at all while we were there (the same trash was floating at one end the whole time) and indoor pool looked cloudy. Chairs around the indoor pool were really dirty as well. I think this would be a fun place for college and 20 somethings in the summer, but as a family, we can get better care for less money elsewhere.

We had a great weekend at Ocean Annies (11/4 and 11/5). This is one of our favorite places to stay when we go to Myrtle Beach. The location is one of the big reasons...you are close enough to everything from the BEST restaurants, shopping. However you do not even need to leave the resort to get good food or entertainment....the Windows has great food....and Sandles is a blast at night with music, dancing and Karoake. The only down side is the smoking. We are from NC and were so happy when the make all the public bars and restaurants smoke free!! The rooms are nice but there still are some that need to be updated. All and all another GREAT weekend trip to MB!!

Room Tip: If you choose to stay "oceanview" stay in the rooms closest to the ocean for the best view...

My family and I have stayed at the Sands Resort many times...and will return many more times. The rooms are always clean and comfortable and the hotel staff are super friendly and helpful. Ocean Annie's is always fun and Sandals is a great place to hang out in the evenings. Whether I go alone for a peaceful get-away, or take my children for a family vacation, Sands Ocean Club is a wonderful desination!

This was not our first stay at a Sands Resort and will not be our last, I've stayed at all sands properties in Myrtle Beach and the ocean club did not dissapoint. This is an older property but the room was spacious, clean and comfortable.Although I didn't go to ocean annies it sounded like they were having a great time. Check their web site as they always have great deals posted.

My Mom and Dad bought timeshare with Sands Resorts when I was 9 years old. It afforded us the opportunity to take family vacations together every year. Now that I have a family of my own, we continue the tradition of annual stays at Sands Resorts. I have had the privilege of vacationing at all of the Sands Resorts properties. Over the years Sands has renovated and upgraded all of their properties to ensure that they provide the best quality stay for all of their guests. Our family will always be longtime fans of Sands Resorts.
