Relax with a private balcony facing the Atlantic Ocean in one of more than 500 newly renovated units at Crown Reef Resort and Waterpark in Myrtle Beach, SC. Featuring a new, four-story tall waterpark with two giant slides, a silly sub, water play area and kiddie slide, Crown Reef Resort and Waterpark provides hours of year-round fun. Enjoy time on the beach or have a fun afternoon at the ultimate oceanfront playground -- as well as the hotel itself, where in addition to the waterpark, the pool deck features pools, hot tubs and lounge chairs. Meander down the longest oceanfront lazy river in Myrtle Beach at 575 feet, unwind with a cocktail at the Pool Bar and Grill, work out in the fitness center, experience dining at several restaurants and cafes on-site, or chill out in the video arcade.

Very Relaxing Stay

My family I were down recently for a weekend of baseball...... We had a great time hanging at the pool and eating at the hotel. It was nice to be able to stay and hang there without ever leaving. Definitely will go back!

Girls Trip

My college friends and I took a last minute, girls trip to myrtle beach. The hotel exceeded our expectations. Although, the rooms were a bit outdated we still enjoyed the experience for what it was and we were comfortable. The three of of us each had our own beds.The suite was spacious and had a good view of the beach. We saved a lot of money with the on suite kitchen, but we're still in walking distance of some great local spots.

good getaway trip

The hotel was so beautiful at night especially when its lit up. The room was nice just not big enough and the glass elevator needs cleaning. Other than that it was OK for the money I spent.

weekend getaway

Real impressed with the resort could tell that it had been recently updated. Price was very good and the staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and nicely updated. Liked the quite end of the beach and restaurant next door was amazing. Will be planning a stay back there in the near future.

Don't believe their website!!

Under construction! Most hot tubs and lazy river had no water in them. Pools that were open were dirty. Noise and mess from work being done. We stayed at this hotel 3 years ago and it was a mess then but the rates were 1/2 what they are now, we thought by now, it would be done and based on the website and the front desk, it was newly remodeled. Their are water slides that are new but they weren't open while we were there. Also, hot water was shut down in our entire tower the day we were leaving.

Keep looking, better hotels.

Made the mistake of trying to check in at the hotel instead of across the street at guest services. Waited in line for 30 minutes only to be told my room still wasn't ready. The hotel is partially renovated, like they ran out of money half way through. Inside pools were filthy and crowded. The waterpark section was the only remotely good thing about this hotel. I would advise looking elsewhere to stay, there are far better options for the money than this place.
