“Good but nothing special”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the Bay Watch Resort for 5 nights. We have always stayed at another resort down the road but we needed a two bedroom condo and our usual hotel had none available. We found Bay Watch on trip advisor and given the mostly positive reviews we called to reserve a room. The lady priced our room and she asked us if we had any floor requests. We requested floor 10 or lower. Although we know these requests are not guaranteed, we were slightly annoyed that we ended up on the 19th (very top) floor. The staff will not let you use the carts to load your belongings unless a bell boy comes with you. You then feel obligated to tip them. I've never seen this before at MB resorts. The parking garage is small and unsafe. The spots are tiny and cars don't have room to pass each other coming around the corners. There were three elevators in Tower 1 and each day there was at least one if not two of them out of order. Many other visitors reported getting stuck on them. Our room was just okay. We had a small balcony which I expected to be bigger since we had a two bedroom condo. The view was very nice. The carpet was torn and needed replacing. The kitchen was spacious and the appliances were new and clean. The floor in the bathroom had hair all over it and had to be mopped. Other than that, housekeeping did a great job and they were very friendly. My 7-year-old enjoyed the various pools, hot tubs and lazy rivers. The bar staff was nice and the drinks were good. Overall we enjoyed our stay. We still prefer our usual resort, but we would stay here again if it were unavailable.

Bay Watch was perfect for my family vacation. We were a party of 6, grandparents, parents and 2 children age 9 and 7. We stayed in a 2 bedroom ocean view and there was plenty of room for us. Awesome view and easy access to the beach pools and hot tubs.
There were lots of little perks that were nice touches, The wash stations for coming off the beach, the on site restaurants and the beach towel return station. These made our trip more pleasant.
The staff was always friendly. Shortly after we entered our room a attendant brought in a new coffee maker letting us know that the cleaning person felt the old one needed to be replaced.
If you like to swim in the ocean you really can't beat Myrtle Beach. We are from Massachusetts so the southern water was a dream. We swam for hours. There was plenty to do within a short drive of the hotel as well.
There were a few things that could have been better such as the elevators and common area rest rooms. However, the issue were always recognized and were being worked on ASAP. Overall we were pleasantly surprised. We would definitely go back.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 15th floor and did the no housekeeping option which was cheaper. This room was exce...

Very nice place for our family and budget. Staff was helpful and friendly.
Facilities could have been a wee bit cleaner and chairs in the indoor pool areas would be nice. Outdoor pool areas were very nice. Planned activities for kids were a nice surprise.
We would return.

Highly recommend BayWatch for your family vacation. We have chosen BayWatch two years in a row. The on site restaurants make it convenient to relax and enjoy the sand, ocean, sun and pool all day! Offer Valet parking so you do not need to worry about finding that last parking space. All staff very friendly. Love they provide large pool towels too!

This was probably my fourth time staying at Bay Watch Resort & Conference Center, It is a very nice and clean place to stay. We did have issues this time with housekeeping, I had to go on two different occasions to ask for the room to be cleaned or to get towels and wash cloths. This had never happened in previous years so maybe they were just short handed or extra busy! I will definitely go back again (I love that place)! I would also recommend to others

Great place to stay. The resort is smoke free but during our stay several people were smoking on the balconies near our room. Our stay was during the busy season just before school started. We decided to add an additional nights stay to our week and the staff was very accommodating.

We rented an ocean front that was good , would have been excellent if it was cleaner , from Elliott realty , who didn't respond to our request , so we got someone to clean it for $50 .
Then we were in paradise.

Room Tip: Higher levels are good.
