Best Hotel Water Park in Myrtle Beach

Best Hotel Water Park in Myrtle Beach


The top Myrtle Beach water park hotels offer endless entertainment with a variety of kiddie splash zones, adult-sized water slides, and wading pools. Save time planning out an itinerary and let the hotel water park take care of the daily activities. When everything is right on-site, you won’t have to pack up for an all-day outing at a local water park, pay admission, or drive across town in your swimsuit.

Since your oceanfront hotel in Myrtle Beach makes beach days effortless, you’ll definitely want to spend a day or two on the shore. But when the forecast calls for rain or you need a break from the sand and saltwater, spending time at your Myrtle Beach hotel’s water park is an excellent backup plan that doesn’t feel like a compromise. 

If you’re new to Grand Strand vacations, you might be astonished by all of the kid-friendly hotels in Myrtle Beach. While nearly all resorts feature oceanfront swimming pools and swirling hot tubs, they don’t all offer twisting water slides and splash zones. North Myrtle Beach hotels with water parks are hard to come by (though the family-friendly beaches in the area may make up for it), and many of the Myrtle Beach hotels on the strip forgo this water feature, so choose your accommodations carefully.

If you promised the kids a water park hotel for your next vacation, make arrangements early to get the room of your choice—especially if you’re arriving in the busy summer months. It’s a win-win when kids get to enjoy a water park and parents get a hotel room with an oceanfront balcony or a Jacuzzi tub. For off-season trips, consider Myrtle Beach hotels with indoor water parks, though some hotels heat their outdoor pools during chillier months. 

What is the best hotel water park in Myrtle Beach for kids?

This south-end Myrtle Beach resort features impressive water slides in its water park that towers 40 feet above ground. The two slides for big kids and adults deliver adventure seekers hundreds of feet worth of twists and turns, shooting them into the wading pool at the end. For kids not meeting the 36-inch requirement, there’s an 8-foot-tall, 20-foot-long slide for little ones that supplies all the thrill they need.

Excitement and relaxation go hand-in-hand at this resort’s oceanside water park. With water slides called The Schooner Screamer and The Compass Cruiser, you know you’re in for a wild ride.

In addition to the 15 pools, hot tubs, and lazy rivers, Captain’s Quarters Resort is home to Shipwreck Lagoon Kids’ Waterpark, a water-wonderland featuring water cannons, mushroom water falls, leaky barrels, water-dumping buckets, and a genuine pirate! And when they’ve worn themselves out, take a float on one of their two lazy rivers and relax as a family.

At the H2OASIS Waterpark, guests can enjoy all manner of fun throughout the 9,800 square feet. Three 40-foot slides are the main attractions here, offering twists, turns, and exhilarating speeds. For those under 4 feet tall, a kids’ splash area features a lion-themed water slide, plus a play station with water jets, barrel bucket dumps, and rain tree umbrellas, along with pools and hot tubs for the grownups.

This shallow-water playground features a silly submarine, waterfalls, a sunken pirate ship, rain-makers, and water jets. Watch your kids while they wear themselves out, and then head over to the large outdoor pool, hot tub, or oceanfront lazy river.
