“Convenient location, great for a family vacation”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Great location near Barefoot Landing & Highway 17 restaurants. Pools are nice and were very clean, but also very crowded with kids all day. Not the place to go for a quiet getaway, more of a noisy, busy family resort. Love the tiki bar, had the best grilled chicken wings for lunch there. Luau and fire dancer show on the pool deck was great. Room was OK, pretty clean but a little outdated. Mold around ceiling in bathroom. Elevators crowded and hot. Still a good value for the beachfront location and convenience. Was able to unload luggage at the door and did not have trouble finding parking. Would go back again, we spend more time on the beach & at the pools than in the room anyway.

Resort is dated and rooms could use a good cleaning. If you go to the beach there is no way to keep the sand out of the room or clean it up. DON'T leave anything behind because even if you call and contact the resort NO ONE ever calls you back and you cannot contact them through the website as it does not work. They do not want unhappy patrons, but do nothing to make them happy. No "adult" time in the pool or hot tub areas which should be considered for couples traveling, etc.

I was extremely disappointed to hear of your negative experience concerning the condition of the unit and the communication for items left by. I hope you will allow us another opportunity to demonstrate our signature hospitality and ask that you call me direct to personally handle your reservation.

the rooms at this hotel were good enough but the accommodations were old and needed to be updated. Things were also kind of smelly damp and dirty. The location was great and the pools were nice. The water was clean in the pools.On the weekends the poolside bar was closed. the elevators were also slow and often skipped floors, making us feel stranded.

Thank you for the review. We are planning on some projects being done in most of the units this winter season. The pool bar usually only closed during regular hours of operation due to weather conditions so I am glad that you brought this and other conditions to my attention. I hope you will return again.

Second time at this resort and the first time we were there the end of August this most recent time we came beginning of August. What a difference! We arrived to check in a few minutes before 4pm (the actual check in time) had to wait in a line only to find out our room was not ready. I gave them my cell phone number to call us when it was ready. After about 30 minutes they called my phone that the room was ready (without towels, they would bring them up later) and I can proceed to the front desk which had an even longer line that I had to wait it. It was a little annoying because we were on the road all day and were tired from the trip. Room was nice, I just wish it had tile floors and not those industrial rugs. There were a few loose doorknobs that my husband tightened instead of calling someone from maintenance to fix. Also this time of year the pool area is very crowded and people "save" the chairs down there as soon as the pool opens. One family member would go down at 8am, put several towels on chairs and go back to their rooms. The hotel never once removed towels as the sign says. It was very frustrating because there were no chairs available when you did go down to the pool. I never wanted to stoop to the level of these inconsiderate people and save a chair. I just watched them doing it every morning from my room! One last downside is the kids activities were not so good, or really the girls running them every day. My son went on a crab hunt and they had to cross the swash a little ways down the beach and the girls stayed on one side of the beach because they didn't have on bathing suits while all the parents and kids crossed it. They didn't even tell the kids how to spot were they are and how to catch them. They should have provided the kids that participated a shovel and bucket, not to keep just to use for the activity. My children also did the tie dye shirts for $10 and when we got to the table where they were doing the activity we were disappointed to find that you just pay the money and the girls do the tie dying for you, so the kids did not actually perform the activity, they just picked the color and design and watch the girls do it for you. Overall I am not sure we would come back, if we did it would not be in the prime season, end of August is much better and less crowded at the pool.

Room Tip: C tower elevators worked well and were not as crowded as the A tower elevators.

We appreciated the review you posted of your recent vacation. I apologize for the inconveniences you experience and will check into the performance of the children's activities. I hope you will consider returning to Beach Cove Resort and typically the end of August is a less crowded time in Myrtle Beach. I would be happy to assist with your next vacation.

For the 21st consecutive year my family spent a week at Beach Cove and once again we had a great time. We were lucky enough to be placed in a 2 bedroom suite that had recently been upgraded by the owners and it was FANTASTIC! Everything about our stay was top notch and already cannot wait until summer of 2015 (unless we win the lottery, and in that case we are buying a 3 bedroom unit and living there).

We recently stayed at the Beach Cove for a couple of days. I was very nervous after reading the previous reviews but was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We had a one room suite that thank goodness had queen beds in tower A. We arrived a little early for check in and had no wait and went right up to our room. When we entered our room our fire alarm was going off and we called the front desk right away. They said maintenance would come and look and it did take them quite awhile to get there, my husband put together that the door to the balcony was open and the humidity was making it go off. We were also missing a remote but was brought one quickly. The elevator also broke shortly after arriving but they had it fixed within 10 minutes and other than it being quite hot in the elevators we did not have anymore problems. The beds were comfortable I thought and was nice to have a separate room to watch tv since I am an early riser. The balcony was large and had a great view which was nice since it rained the whole time we were there. There is also an arcade with pool tables we used thanks to the rain. The restaurant was yummy, we only ate breakfast there but was easy to get a to go box and eat in your room. Lots of options, fruit, pancakes, eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits etc. Housekeeping usually came late in the day and the only problem we had was that she made one bed but threw everything on the other and left it unmade. There is also a safe in the room. It was nice to have dishes, coffee, microwave and refrigerator in the room. The pools were nice and had no problems getting a chair all weekend. There were 3 pools, an indoor pool, a lazy river and 3 hot tubs. At one point there were children throwing ice off the balcony hitting people in the pool and we called security immediately, we saw security out at the pool after we called but not sure if anyone was reprimanded. I stayed at Beach Cove when I was a young girl so it was nice to remake memories with my own family.

Stayed at Beach Cove with husband and kids last week of July. Very close to Barefoot Landing, grocery store and right on the beach with beach service, lifeguards, pools and tiki bar. Room we stayed in was in need of updating but sufficient for our needs since we spent time on beach, at pool or out and about.

Elevators were an issue at times but the housekeeping staff on our floor were very friendly and accomodating. We booked 1 week before arrival so not sure if it was the best deal- other locations had alot of vacancies posted, maybe for better price but all in all- a great trip and badly needed getaway after a long baseball season!
