Crown Reef Beach Resort & Waterpark

2918 S. Ocean Blvd, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577

The south end of Myrtle Beach is booming, and the Crown Reef Beach Resort and Waterpark is growing right along with it.

For generations the Crown Reef has been playing host to happy families, couples, golfers and convention parties on its spacious oceanfront property, and major recent renovations insure that future generations of vacationers will make the Crown Reef their home away from home.

In addition to upgrades to all units, the Crown Reef has built a new on-site waterpark that rivals the ones with big admission charges. And with their refreshed oceanfront rooms, excellent amenities and great on-site restaurants, there's really no reason to leave the property.

All rooms at the Crown Reef are oceanfront, ranging from rooms to one-bedroom suites that sleep up to eight. Suites include private balconies, fully furnished kitchens, two TVs, in-room safes, free WiFi and more. Jacuzzi suites are also available.

The rooms overlook the Atlantic Ocean and the Crown Reef's spacious pool deck with more than 20 water features. Relax by the 125-foot outdoor pool, soak in one of 11 hot tubs, or take a dip in the indoor pool on rainy days. A kiddie pool and an aquatic playground are available for the little ones, who will also get a thrill from the waterpark and its twin, 300-foot slides and other rides. Crown Reef also hosts a series of children's activities through the summers.

There's also plenty of enjoyment for the grownups at the Crown Reef. Work up a sweat at the newly remodeled fitness center, cool off with a frozen drinks from the Pool Bar & Grill and enjoy a nice dinner and show at the Town Center Dining and Entertainment Center, where you can keep the kids occupied in the Game On video arcade and Winners Circle.

Guests don't have to go far to find great entertainment, dining and shopping. The growing area includes Market Common, an upscale urban-style shopping center with all of the above. Damon's Oceanfront Restaurant, Springmaid Beach Pier and a par-3 and putt-putt golf courses are only steps away.


Guests can dine at one of several restaurants on the premises, splash around in the four-story water park complete with twisting slides, float leisurely in the lazy river, or have an adventure in the arcade room.

Room types

Most rooms at the Crown Reef Resort have direct, unobstructed views of the Atlantic. Choose between two queen beds in the efficiency or jacuzzi suite or a king bed in an efficiency or jacuzzi suite.
