“Misleading room discription”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

An Ocean front angled 1 bedroom isn't the farthest roof from the actual ocean witha view of the beach if you sit sideways on the balcony. After running up against a wall at the main desk we just decided we were here, just enjoy our stay. No hot water during part of the stay. Kicker came at checkout when we were asked if we had enjoyed our stay, mentioned the room discription problem and then was informed that they heare that alot. If we had booked a room aying ocena view, that's what we woulfd have expected. Poor customer service....

We stayed in a 3 bedroom oceanview room at the Ocean Reef Resort in Mid March 2012 as we were in Myrtle Beach for a cheerleading competition and found the room to be well priced for what we got. The oceanview room had a nice view of the pool as well as the ocean, it was on the side of the hotel. We never heard any noise from other rooms but there was a strange smell in one of the rooms, we couldn't quite figure out if it was mildew or the smell of the beach. I did smell the same smell in other areas so it very well could have been the beach. The kids loved the pools, there was an indoor pool with a lazy river as well as an outdoor pool and small kiddie water park. In the front of the hotel there is also another water play area that was being worked on and it looks like they were putting in a new waterslide in that area. I would definitely rate it good for families. It was very easy to find and on a "nicer" part of Ocean Blvd in the northern part of Myrtle Beach. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Oceanfront rooms are actual oceanfront, ocean view 3 bedrooms are on the side of the hotel which is...

Great value for families. We are returning guests and are happy to say that the Ocean Reef has maintained consistent values and amenities. We appreciate the beach front location, indoor pools and play areas, and spacious clean rooms.
This property does not offer many ammenities, but is well placed and in walking distance to Starbucks and several other dining experiences. I don't consider this a full service resort because there is no valet, room service, kids programs, bell hops, on site restaurant serving 3 meals, etc.
There are indoor, 4 jaccuzzis, a great toddler indoor pool play area, indoor lazy river, indoor pool in addition to the outdoor pools. We value this because our kids burn easily and in case of bad weather. All areas were very clean and everything was working during our stay.
We stayed in a one bedroom queen suite, which had two queens in the bedroom, a queen Murphy bed in the living room and a pull out queen couch. One bathroom with a jack and Jill door, small dining table, sink, stove, dishwasher, fridge, and washer dryer combo. Everything was clean and in good working order. Only complaint was that the shower head was low for 6' hubby.

Room Tip: Get a higher floor to avoid pool noise (9th floor and above) Go to food lion and get snacks and dri...

We took our 4 nieces and 1 nephew on a weeks vacation at Ocean Reef Resort. The 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo was very comfortable and the price was great considering all that you got. The kitchen was very well equipped and beautiful. Living/ dining room was great. THERE WERE 4 TV'S!!! No arguing over who is going to watch what. Because the weather was so good, low to mid 80's, 8 of the 9 water features were open. The kids tried real hard, but couldn't possibly get bored. It was a great value, too. We just filled up the fridge and cut the kids loose on the beach, pools and game room. No need to leave the condo. Our 2 beach front terraces were a great place for the grown ups to hang. Everyone was happy. We will be back!

Stayed at Ocean Reef Resort for the first time. This is my 17th consecutive year on a golf package and was very pleased with Ocean Reef. The Golf Desk was wonderful--worked through a customized golf package and it was very reasonably priced. Ocean Reef has a variety of room configurations...1-4 bedroom condos, single rooms, parlors, and suites and penthouses. There's something for everyone. We stayed in a 1 bedroom executive suite, which had 2 bathrooms and an ocean front bedroom. The rooms were a little outdated (thus a Very Good vs. Excellent), but they were comfortable and clean. The common areas in the hotel had been updated nicely, and ALL the staff were welcoming and friendly. The on-site breakfast was wonderful, and with a cook for special requests. Quiet and centrally located, this is a great option for a Myrtle Beach get-away.

Room Tip: Look at the Ocean Reef website and you can see the room floor plans and pictures. Helpful if you...
