We really enjoyed our stay at the Sands Ocean Resort. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet. We enjoyed our huge balcony and fully-functional kitchen and bathroom. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were cleaned each day. The resort provided ample free covered parking on-site (not across the street like other places). The outdoor restaurant/bar section - I think it's called Ocean Annie's? - just opened up for the season and featured a live band. The resort also offered several golf packages to consider. The resort is close to many courses! It looked as though the lazy river pool was renovated in addition to 1 outdoor and 1 indoor pool. We loved the location - a 5 min drive to shops and restaurants and about a 10 min drive from Broadway on the Beach. We would definitely stay there again with family and friends!

This has got to be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in! The only thing I can compare it to is a place for people going through their mid life crisis to hang out. Ocean Annies was full of obnoxious drunks pushing each other into the pool, then swimming around with their clothes on. Of course their drinks went in to pool to, so the pool is full of beer cans and cups. Sandals the bar in the lobby is full of middle age men stalking the middle age wanna be Jessica Simpsons singing in the karoke bar. It is awful.

The indoor pool is so over cholorinated my children and my friends children were covered in rashes for 3 days after our trip. After complaing 3 times they reduced the cholorine in that pool.

Our room was pathetic. The sheets on the bed were torn, the bathroom and tiles missing with mold growing, half the lightbulbs were burned out in the bathroom and vanity area. The people who stayed before us left molded food in the refrigerator that was still there when we left. The air conditioning in our room didn't work. We could not leave the sliding door open for air as the noise from the bar was unbearable.

HOnesltly, we travel 4 to 5 times a year and have stayed at roadside hotels that were cleaner with a nicer staff than this dump. IT IS HORRIBLE.

BIG WARNING.... THE PROPERTY HAS BEEN SOLD AND IS NO LONGER PART OF THE SANDS GROUP. SO ALL THE THINGS THEY ADVERTISE ON THEIR WEBSIDTE.... WATER PARK, KIDS PROGRAM, THEY NO LONGER OFFER. They were sold in January but have not updated their website nor have they changed the brochures at the front desk.

We watched family after family come down and complain at the front desk about their rooms. They will cut you a deal on your room if your unhappy but who cares, you still have to stay there as they pre charge your credit card and charge you for early departure.

The girls at the front desk are all out nasty, I'm sure because they are yelled at all day. It was the worst place I have ever stayed.
BEWARE!!!!!!!

We stayed at the Sands Ocean Club this past week and played golf there. As we have stayed there in the past, we noticed all of the construction going on. We were told that the property was purchased by a new owner on January 1st of this year.

The changes are obvious and excellent. Tile now covers the walls in the rooms and hallways. River City Cafe and Ocean Annies are excellent.

We booked through a Myrtle Beach Golf company that we found on a search engine looking for Ocean Annies. The service at Sands Ocean Club was excellent. The golf was great and we saved a bundle.

this place is the WORST unless you're a partying twenty year old and all you want to do is drink and pass out. went with my 2 young daughers and my mom. the music at the bar was nonstop loud all night. our room was disgusting. stove was broken, fridge didn't work, drain was stopped up the whole time. the elevators took forever and we were on the 14th floor. the only good points i can think of are the lazy river and the indoor pool. otherwise, this is a very run down, crappy place. Kids club was a joke, you had to call first thing in the a.m. to get a reservation. i called everyday first thing and was told it was full for the day!!!! HATED IT
