The Ocean Reef Resort was an amazing stay! We came here 2 years in a row! We would have came a third time, but we had plans. You don't want to hear my future plans so let us get to the review. The Ocean Reef had quite comfortable beds with a really clean bathroom! Despite being by the beach, there was a lack of bugs as well, which was a bonus. The Ocean Reef offers you an extraordinary view of the ocean. Here is a tip. The higher you get to the top floor, the better the view is. Another great pa... Read more

Had great ocean front room on 10th floor. Private balcony. Very clean. Had a very nice time here. Only down fall was that there were no umbrellas at pool for lounge chairs which made it difficult if you are fair skinned or just want to avoid getting scorched if you chose to hang at pool all day. One other downfall were the smokers. It states smoke free but people still choose to smoke around pool area or off balconies which waft into your room. Not fun if your asthmatic or hate smoking.

Resort was nice overall. 2 bedroom in north tower was spacious, but needed some updates and attention to detail cleaning. Bedding was nice, but kitchen appliances and cookware were not great. I used a lot of Clorox wipes and washed all dishes first. Pools and kids water areas were really fun and well up kept. Beach access was easy. DVD rentals were a bonus. Washer/dryer in room was a luxury.

We intentionally wanted an ocean front room and were told we had booked one while booking through the 800#. When we arrived the clerk said we had an ocean "view" room and that none of the room styles we booked were ocean front. We reviewed the website and it also described our room style as "Angle Ocean Front". The word Angle was the issue. We were as close to the street as possible with and "angled" "view" of the ocean.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo. The space and layout were great-the condition of the room was poor. There were dirty smears on all of the walls, floors did not look like they had been mopped in a long time. There were only 3 spoons and 4 forks in the "fully stocked" kitchen. Kitchen supplies were very very minimal, no frying pan, very few utensils, no coffee filters for the coffee pot.

We stayed here for a week for our honeymoon. We had great staff who were very friendly and helpful. We loved the cafe breakfast bar they had. The rooms were very clean and always restocked.

Nice hotel beautiful views. Huge water/pool area with numerous hot tubs and a lazy river. The onsite restaurant was very good. I pain ten dollars for breakfast buffet. Some package's include meals but mine did not as I got in at a discount midweek price. I had a wonderful stay the room and bed was so comfortable. I was on the 10th floor but I left the patio door open all night to get the breeze and hear the waves. I would definitely stay here again.

My family (3 year old, 4 year old and husband) stayed here June 30th-July 2nd. We had a blast!! The water park is great for small children and kept them entertained for hours.

First time staying at the Ocean Reef Resort. Enjoyed the pools and hot tub. Didn't try the restaurant but our friends did and said it was very good. Rooms were spacious, but the bed was a little uncomfortable. Overall the Resort is nice, parking can be a problem, but they do have a parking garage that you can use. Fun times with family and friends and will go back. Our house keeper was great, and very helpful.

Bottom-line, the staff and pool areas were awesome! Building and rooms just need some TLC. I loved the location and the beach was very clean and easily accessible.

The place was perfect for kids, clean, and a great location. The bathrooms were very clean, as well as the fridge and microwave. I bought a bottle of cleaning bleach and really didn't even need it. I would try a bigger room next time with a stove and sink. A lot of guests cooked their own food. Great drinks at the pool as well, and they were always cleaning the pool.

Most of the sites you check will say this is a 4 Star hotel. The only thing about this hotel that is 4 star is the location. Waking up in the morning to the sound and sight of waves crashing is wonderful. They light up the beach at night so you can see the waves at night too! That said its not a bad place. It's just fine - overpriced but nice. You don't hear your neighbors or kids running in the hall so the quiet is appreciated. You have to pay in full at check in- didn't like that. You also get...

The plusses: room was clean and comfortable (we had a queen efficiency oceanfront), the pools are nice with plenty of chairs, the lounge chairs in the grassy area are relaxing, the first floor/lobby is nice, and the resort has bright spotlights on the beach all night so it feels safe. The downers: elevators are small and seem inefficient, bath towels weren't the greatest, area for cars during checkin/out is crowded.

Overall I would recommend the Ocean Reef. This was my first time visiting Myrtle Beach, so I don't have much to compare, but overall I was happy with accomodations. Parking is across the street, which makes loading/unloading a pain, but they do have a handful of parking spots up close for that reason. Otherwise, the pools are great for families, but if you want more privacy or an adult only pool, then I would go elsewhere.

Big rooms and nice private balconies. Pool area was great and cleaned every day and during the day if needed. Only bad things was that you have to watch out for balls by the pool. Even if its not allowed, people play with balls all over. I got hit hard by one in the head. Thank God it didnt hit a small baby, because that was HARD and gave me a lump. For a baby it would have been critical. Earlier reviews said problems with parking, we didnt have that problem. Would probably go back â?º

Just checked into our room in the North Tower. When booking the room, we were late making reservations, but as rooms were available, we booked it. I specifically requested a room between the 3rd and 7th floor and was assured that should not be a problem, but she could not guarantee a certain floor. So, we check in and find out we are on the 17th floor. The only thing above us is the roof. Based on the cost of the room, this is not a bargain by any stretch of the imagination and it's like si...

This hotel has so many amenities. There are many pools and slides for little children and an outdoor bar for the older folks. You can eat in your bathing suit while enjoying the sun. The price is fair and they have rooms to accommodate all size parties. We stayed in a 4 bedroom/3 bath condo and had no complaints about the room. They need a few more carts to help handle the luggage. Could use a few more elevators at busy times...Breakfast is fabulous! Golf times easy to acquire. Balcony w... Read more

rusty iron, no plates, silverware etc. just felt like we stayed in a very worn-down place. I was also promised a roommate from an email promo and then was bait and switched to a higher price. They comp'd some breakfast for us, but it doubled the room cost.

We booked this resort through hotel.com for 3 days. I have to say the staff was really nice. We had a standard oceanfront room. The room was nice. You can tell there were some updates, but there were other things that needed updating. For a few nights, it was fine. The pool was super packed. This was my first time in Myrtle in 20 years...next time we will stay in North Myrtle. It is less busy and the beach is nicer. One suggestion...check in really early. If you check in at check in ...

Nice room, great view of ocean. Very happy with hotel overall. One major issue though: When we left room the first day and came back in the afternoon housekeeping still hadn't cleaned our room. When I found somebody she said they knocked and we weren't there. Isn't that when they are supposed to clean? Then she asked what we wanted done. I said 'the usual'. I had to tell her what specifically we wanted done. This happened a couple times. Then the one day when we didn't have to find them to clean... Read more

The only complaint I have is how long it took to check in. It was crazy. The condo and the amenities made up for and we forgot how long it took to check in. This property is perfect for families and for others who love to be around lots of people. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My grandson slipped in the lazy river and sprained his ankle, had to go to ER. The hotel staff were very helpful during this painful time.

Was glad we could get rooms for the weekend since family from Ohio was here for a week and we came up from Georgia to spend a couple of days with them. The facility is right on the beach so you do not have to travel to get to the beach. Pool and lazy river are great.

OCEAN REEF HOTEL IS Clean,on the beach,front desk personnel very pleasant. Eat in restaurant only serves breakfast buffet. No menu items. Checkout was crazy meaning cars were out front loading their belongings and the parking lot was impassable. NOT MUCH PARKING ON PROPERTY ITSELF. OVERALL I WOULD STAY THERE AGAIN BUT MY HUSBAND WILL NOT.

Room was very clean and orderly. DVD service is great. Housekeeping is great but come at varying times. We had a broken luggage rack and missing forks, dish soap & sponge in kitchen. We requested these items 4 separate times and never received the luggage rack. Front desk staff is super friendly but their answers were "I don't know" a lot of times, even when I asked about kids club. Food/drink in Banana Boat lounge was very good, even though they were severely understaffed 3 of the 4 times we w... Read more

Nice clean ocean front room. Housekeeping did a good job daily. Kids (11 & 9) enjoyed the slides, lazy river, and pools. Clean lobby and fitness room. We enjoyed the shuffle board and large chess. The free DVD rental was a nice perk. The only down side was the parking. It was across the street, but we would still stay there again.

Pools overrun with rough horseplay. No chairs to sit in, as people save them all day and this is not monitored even though they have signs saying management will move belongings if left unattended for more than 30 minutes. Not a relaxing trip.

Just finished our week at the Ocean Reef Resort- We enjoyed the 3rd floor 4 bedroom suite. The rooms were clean and well equipped. Nothing glamorous but very functional and comfortable. We liked being on the third floor because the elevators are hit or miss! That is the only thing that I would say was disheartening!! When we checked in one of the main elevators was "out of order". It was up and running the next day but throughout the week (7/30-8/6) there were several times when one or the... Read more

This is the fifth year that we have stayed at Ocean Reef, and we have never had a problem with housekeeping before. Although we received fresh towels every day and our trash was taken out, in the 7 days that we were there, our beds were never made, our bathrooms never cleaned, our bed linens never changed, our kitchen and bathroom floors were never swept, and our LR floor vacuumed only once on Friday (after we complained). On the positive side, they have made some nice improvements to the outs... Read more

Great location, beach is great. Building has some age on it, although there is evidence of recent re-modeling. Kid friendly. Breakfast and service was good. More crowded and busier than I like. The beach waves are stronger than the gulf, which I liked, but wife not so much

I want to start with the good...which isn't very much. The pool area and the Banana Boat restaurant we good and some of the staff. Pool area plenty of room to swim and the kids enjoyed the lazy river as well as the water slide. The service at the Banana Boat restaurant was excellent. We checked in about 1AM and the staff that checked us in was great and a gentleman who was trying to leave because he was off helped me find a luggage cart very helpful....but that's where the good ends. The bad. P... Read more

We arrived this afternoon and was pleased our room was ready by 1:30 & check in was easy. When we came downstairs at 3pm the check in line was very long. We were given a room on the 12th floor. The room smells like old feet. The outside balcony smells like urine. We ran to the store to get Febreeze & a candle. This only slightly masked the odor. The a/c unit is so loud it's hard to sit out on the balcony & enjoy the waves. It's a shame because the view is great. The beds are only equipped wit... Read more

The pros: Located right on the beach, clean room, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and safe. The cons: Parking. The lot across the street was often full and I had to go to the parking garage next door. I was told that it is not cost effective to enforce parking in the lot . Crowded pool: Let's face it: It's August and peak season. Get to the pool early if you want to find a chair. Kitchen supplies: I had only one knife. There were no dish towels, paper towels, small coffee filters (the ... Read more
