Myrtle Beach Hotels With Lazy Rivers

Myrtle Beach Hotels With Lazy Rivers


Hotels in Myrtle Beach with lazy rivers are some of the best family-friendly accommodations, offering fantastic water amenities for playing and relaxing. When you’re researching places to stay in the Grand Strand, you’ll be happy to know the oceanfront pools and lazy rivers are as exceptional as they seem. If you’re arriving in the off-season or prefer shade to full sun, look for a Myrtle Beach hotel with an indoor pool and lazy river. But if soaking in the summer sun is your top activity, you’ll enjoy staying at any of the Myrtle Beach oceanfront hotels with a lazy river in their outdoor pool decks. 

The best part about lazy rivers is that they’re fun for adults and kids to ride. Unlike some waterslides with height and weight limits, there are fewer requirements for hopping on a tube and floating a lazy river. Most lazy rivers at Myrtle Beach hotels do not have age restrictions because of gentle currents and shallow 3-foot depths, so little ones can ride with mom or dad or float solo—with supervision, of course. Some resorts in Myrtle Beach with a lazy river allow more than one person per tube and others do not, so brush up on the posted policies before you dive in.

Water features vary from resort to resort, but the 300-foot lazy river at Landmark Resort is among the longest in Myrtle Beach, and the 350-foot lazy river at Beach Cove is North Myrtle’s longest. Other impressive lazy rivers in Myrtle Beach include Dunes Village Resort’s 250-foot indoor oasis and Sea Watch Resort’s two oceanfront lazy rivers that total 450 feet.  While most of these winding pools are three or four feet deep, The Caravelle and Landmark Resort are two hotels in Myrtle Beach with one-foot-deep lazy rivers just for kids. 

The variety of Myrtle Beach hotels with lazy rivers makes finding accommodations in your dream location simple. If you prefer to stay at a hotel on the Myrtle Beach strip, you won’t have any trouble finding lodging with a lazy river on its amenities list. If you want a quieter getaway, browse North Myrtle Beach hotels with a lazy river, including Avista, Beach Cove, or North Beach Resort.

Dunes Village Resort

5200 North Ocean Blvd., Myrtle Beach SC 29577
191 review(s)

This Myrtle Beach hotel with an indoor lazy river and water park is fun for more than just kids: The resort’s waterpark includes a 250-foot lazy river and the area’s first adult-sized indoor waterslides. If you find the lazy river more exhilarating than relaxing, a soak in the hot tub or a trip to the hotel’s full-service spa ought to help you unwind.

The Caravelle Resort

6900 N Ocean Blvd, Myrtle Beach SC 29572
130 review(s)

The block-long poolscape beside The Caravelle Resort’s main hotel tower features not one, but two lazy rivers. The kiddie river is one foot deep for little ones to ride and splash in and the adult-sized river is three feet deep. Don’t be surprised to find a mix of ages, though. Both rivers are heated seasonally.

The indoor and outdoor lazy rivers are 300 feet long each and offer views of other pools as you meander the waterways.

A duo of lazy rivers at Captain’s Quarters Resort plus 13 other water features make this an excellent spot for water lovers. Cap off a long, hot day at the beach with a relaxing tube ride inside on the 232-foot indoor lazy river. Or stick to the sunshine and float along the 150-foot outdoor river to keep an eye on the kids as they play in the nearby pools.

Strategically located behind the rest of the water features, Hotel BLUE’s lazy river is a relaxing getaway tucked away from it all. This indoor amenity is ideal for a peaceful float out of the sun. When you’ve had enough chill time inside, head outside to the swim-up pool bar, MIXX—one of the best hotel bars in Myrtle Beach. Mingle with fellow vacationers and sip on a cool drink while the kids splash in the nearby pool.
