Resorts in Myrtle Beach

Updated on April 3, 2008

One Reason Vacationers Stay at Resorts in Myrtle Beach

Why Am I an Expert at Resorts in Myrtle Beach?

I should offer an explanation for trusting in my opinion of resorts in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I have traveled for various reasons in my lifetime. It seems I was born with wanderlust. I have migrated because of the military, vacations, to visit far-away relatives, business, and job transfers. I once relocated halfway across the United States just to get a change of scenery.

My experience with Myrtle Beach started when I was a teenager many, many moons ago. My father and practically everyone in the region where he lived had "discovered" Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Not only did I go to Myrtle Beach every year with my father, but also with cousins, aunts and uncles, and friends.

As a result, I have gathered lots of experience and information about resorts in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Of course, I haven't visited every resort in Myrtle Beach, but I have been to several. And after a few years, I kept returning to the same resorts in Myrtle Beach. I have narrowed my list down to my favorite three resorts in Myrtle Beach. One isn't technically Myrtle Beach, but North Myrtle Beach- close enough for me.

Here is the list of my all-time favorite resorts in Myrtle Beach.

Resorts in Myrtle Beach - Marriott at Grande Dunes

Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort at Grande Dunes

Ocean Creek Resort in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Dunes Village Resort in Myrtle Beach

Dunes Village Resort at Myrtle Beach, SC

5300 North Ocean Boulevard

The Dunes Village Resort in Myrtle Beach is a great choice for families, although everyone else will love this Myrtle Beach resort as well. It is one of the newer resorts in Myrtle Beach located on the oceanfront. The price for a hotel room varies depending upon the season, but it is a very good Myrtle Beach value for what you get in return.

The big attraction to The Dunes Village Resort is the indoor water amusement park. The water park includes a river ride, water basketball, numerous hot tubs, a water slide for adults, and lots of water games. Because it's indoors, weather isn't a factor for fun at this resort in Myrtle Beach.

      Nice list! Hit the nail on the head with those. They are always some of the top favs. Very luxurious. Also check out the new North Beach Plantation at 719 Beach Drive. It's one of the newest hot spots. HUGE pools, plus a swim-up bar.

      John, yes, Myrtle Beach has certainly changed in the more than 20 years since I first went. It is much more developed and crowded now, but compared to many other tourist areas, it still is more peaceful and relaxing to me.

      Thanks, Diana, hopefully you will get to visit Myrtle Beach in reality soon!

      myi4u, I hope you will get to visit Myrtle Beach someday and see a Myrtle Beach sunset in person!
