For generations, the Crown Reef Resort & Waterpark has been playing host to happy families, couples, golfers and convention parties on its spacious oceanfront property.

With an on-site, year-round waterpark and plenty of other amenities, guests can enjoy their Myrtle Beach vacation without ever leaving the oceanfront resort.

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.

The rooms overlook the Atlantic Ocean and the Crown Reef’s spacious pool deck with more than 15 water features. Relax by the 125-foot outdoor pool, soak in one of 10 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 kiddie slide. 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 fitness center, cool off with a frozen drinks from the Pool Bar & Grill and enjoy a delicious dinner 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 surrounding area includes The Market Common, an upscale urban-style shopping center with all of the above.

"Sooooo many things The Crown Reef has done right!!!"

Honest positive review- I was married here in 2007. Great ceremony and reception- thank you Crown Reef. I have not been here since 2007, and my family and I came back because of the great rates and to show our children where we were married. (I am soooo glad that we came here!) Okay…. It’s like this- 1. Clean 2. Great and friendly staff 3. If you have children you can not beat this place. The water park is oceanfront- so you can do the beach, pool, water park, and kiddie area is all in close vicinity. Might I add - it’s nice to have a water park on site!!! Love it. 4. The arcade! My kids love it! 5. The breakfast downstairs 6. The mascot - Salty walked around and took pictures with the kids! How cool is that? 7. Hair wraps and braiding on site! Love it 8. Italian Ice - on site! 9. Big plus- The refill cups! Love them and going for soda refills at anytime! 10. The restaurant downstairs 11. People constantly painting, cleaning up, and taking care of the place! I love that! 12. Banana Boat rides, parasailing etc. right on the beach. The only thing that I miss is the purple railing, purple lighting, and hints of purple that used to be everywhere. But that’s okay. Things change. If you have children and want a clean, fun place to stay this is for you. :)

"Fun fun and more fun!"
by Beth Akers

This is the place you want to be at for adventures and unique activities all in one place. Not overly crowded, so much to do, great staff and lifeguards. Lots of food options to choose from, comfortable rooms, walking distance to the steakhouse, great entertainment and fun activities for the kids ,water slides on sight and parasailing next door, what else could you ask for?
