Member Review
"Just came back from a great week! We have been at Marriott resorts in Florida and Hilton Head. Myrtle Beach has them all beat. We especially liked the woodsey area. When finished with the beach a short walk put us in the "country" with a great pool and water slide. We really enjoyed the contrast. The rooms were great and the staff wonderful. When the final building is finished there will be a basketball court, boche court, and shuffle board. This along with all the great things to do in Myrtle Beach makes this place a must to stay at."
