“Watch your bank card”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

We went down spring break for a week.. Had a great time, great service.. When we got back home and checked our back statement.,75 dollars was taken... They told us that somebody had made a mistake and they would put it back into our account in 8-10 business days.. So if we wouldn't have checked out bank account.. The cashier would have walked off with the money..Please check your account after giving the front desk your card...

We came here Sunday 4/6/2014 on an RCI Timeshare exchange. 2 BR condo. Check-in was a breeze. Staff very friendly and informative. Our unit was very well equipped and exceptionally clean. 3 TV's - 2 flat screen, DVD player. Fast WIFI. The only downside was that the beach was a fairly long block away: free shuttle bus available hourly. Our condo was on the 2nd floor, no elevator but no problem as the Maintenance crew was more than willing to carry our luggage up and down the 14 stairs.

We put in an ongoing search and this resort popped up. We saw the good reviews and it's close to the beach, which it is within driving distance of 1 mile. The grounds are pretty well kept and we stayed in the plantation presidential villas 3 bedroom. This is a lock off unit with the third bedroom a hotel style room. So this was a 1 1/2 kitchen and 3 bathroom too. Also has a washer and dryer and because the hotel room was attached it had two washers and dryers, not that we needed it.
The good was that we were close to the outdoor heated pool, the bad is that the indoor pool is .3 miles away, walking is ok but a little walk. The spray park and the lazy river are not heated and since it was only 70 didn't use them but they are located across the street from the outdoor pool.
The furniture needs updating badly. The drawers in the bedroom were broken. But the beds were very comfortable and plenty of pillows and blankets.
We checked in and had to go over to the desk to get a parking pass and offered the "90 min tour "thing for $100. We declined and didn't hear a peep after that! Not very crowded when we went in April which was nice. Front desk also allows you to sign online to print out any tickets you might want to purchase online for the discounted price.
Overall this is a nice resort and centrally located to all attractions.

Room Tip: We choose second floor and try and get a unit close to the end of a building. Limits your noise. T...

I have visited this resort many times through the years. They have many different lodging options. They also offer great kid activities in the summer. The winter is a quieter time at the resort. Overall great family vacation spot!

Room Tip: Hotel rooms have different amenities throughout the resort

We had a very good experience and although there were a few "bumps" everything was handled well and expeditiously. The grounds of the timeshare area are well-maintained, the buildings were attractive. The resort offered transportation to shopping and the beaches. The indoor pool and gym were very clean.

We had a two bedroom/sleeps six unit. All appliances and fixtures were in working order and the unit was clean. Both bedrooms have small decks overlooking a golf course. The unit came supplied with paper towels, laundry detergent, dish washer detergent as well as bath shampoo, etc.

The Front Desk was very helpful with assisting with "things to do" in the area.

Room Tip: Location is not walking distance to any restaurants or shops. Must have car to fully enjoy area.

I own at this resort and stay here often using points or last call. What people need to understand is that not all of the Villas are the same. Some are older and some are much smaller than others. Our first visit we booked a hotel room in the Plantation Resort of Myrtle beach this room really was just a hotel room it was small and had no amenities in the room. We have since stayed in The Plantation Golf Villas, the Plantation Resort Villas and The Presidential Villas at Plantation Resort. Anyone booking at this resort needs to pay attention to what room they are booking and what the bedding arrangements will be. When we stayed in a Hotel Unit in the Presidential Villas it was huge!! There was a King size bed and a Queen size sleeper sofa a table with 2 chairs and a small kitchenette with sink, hot plate a small refrigerator, a toaster and coffee maker. The Bathroom was a good size with a large walk in closet. Almost all of the resorts have an outside patio or balcony for each unit.

All of these resorts share the same outside and inside activities. There is a nice outdoor pool that can get crowded in the high season. There is a lazy river and children's water play area across the street from the main pool. there is also a children's playground on the property. In the amenities building there is a very nice indoor pool and hot tub plus the exercise room and a fitness center. Next door is the arcade and game room. There are usually activities for adults and/or children planned weekdays.

At Christmas time we have had 2-3 bedroom units and up to 7 people we stay 2 weeks and never feel closed in or on top of each other. Some of the resorts have free WiFi but I am not sure if all do. There is free WiFi at the activity center.

This resort is not on the beach, but a shuttle service is run in the summer. You are in a quiet community off the main road and it is quiet, but you will need a car to get to the numerous restaurants and attractions in the area. Remember it can get cold in Myrtle Beach and do not expect to go swimming in an outdoor pool or the Ocean from October through April. The weather may surprise you and be in the 70's but don't count on it.
Make sure you know what you are getting and you should have a great vacation here.

Room Tip: If you want the largest most up to date room you should ask for the Presidential Villas. There are...

My family and I went to this resort with the intention of touring leaving. Betsy our tour guide was so absolutely amazing we ended up purchasing a time share there which we intend to use a lot. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone coming to the Myrtle Beach area as there is nowhere more fabulous in the entire area.

Room Tip: There is not a bad room in the entire resort take your pick.
