Ocean Reef has to be The Greatest Motel I have ever stayed in down there. The staff is very friendly an very helpful.I really enjoyed stayin there..
This is a great place to stay. I’ve been going to myrtle beach since the 80’s and this resort kept the tradition going. Wonderful for all ages. The staff were very friendly. We definitely recommend this resort and this beach for anyone.
Great place to stay during your vacation!!
Our stay at Ocean Reef was outstanding, the resort was clean and welcoming and there was plenty to do and see and the beach was wonderful, would highly recommend it.
Great rooms. excellent dining facility (food, drink, staff, awesome). Sign in a breeze, prices for everyone's wallet.
Been coming here since 1990 with my then “boyfriend” now my loving husband. The hotel staff is attentive. Stavaros at papaguyos is the best!!! The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The grounds are well kept. The kids love the pools, lazy river and the game room. My brother in law even got engaged here! It’s my happy place. Put me in a hair facing the dunes and that’s where you’ll always find me. The breakfasts are delicious and the beach burgers are a must. We love you Ocean Reef! Every year we come back!!!
Nice spacious clean rooms great views of the ocean nice location great access to the beach clean pool helpful in friendly staff
This hotel never fails my expectations. The staff is awesome. Hotel is wonderful. Love the location. Excellent staff. Lovely rooms. Breakfast staff and food is great. Will always stay at this hotel. Travel to Myrtle Beach at least 2-3 times per year. Always stay at this hotel.
We have been traveling to Myrtle Beach since 1984, at that time Ocean Reef was the Sheraton. We feel in love with MB and we still love it today. Can’t wait for June to get here so the grand kids can have a blast at the Reef and oh boy do they love Angela at Harry’s. It would not be Myrtle Beach if we did not eat breakfast at Harry’s.
My fiance and I loved our oceanfront room on the 15th floor. The sounds of the waters were as soothing as the bed was comfortable. We witnessed dolphins playing by day and jellyfish lighting the ocean by night. The staff members were very friendly and accommodating. We appreciated the discounted tickets to nearby attractions offered by the hotel and can hardly wait for the opportunity to return.
It was very relaxing and enjoying.
OUR STAY HERE WAS GREAT. THE ROOM WAS WONDERFUL AND THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT. THE STAFF WAS COURTEOUS AND FRIENDLY AND COULD NOT DO ENOUGH FOR YOU. rnCOULD HAVE MORE HANDICAP PARKING AND LITTLE BIGGER PARKING SPOTS SO AS TO GET A WHEELCHAIR BETWEEN THE CARS.
Had a great stay again. The staff and all around condition of tje Reef again was outstanding.
Absolutely wonderful, staff was excellent, great place for vacation.
Been bringing a group of golfers to Myrtle Beach and staying at The Ocean Reef for over 25 years. The accommodations, service and Buffet breakfast has always exceeded our expectations especially Maggie in the restaurant and the entire front desk team and the golf coordinator is always cooperative and takes care of our group.
We have stayed here twice and we are planning on coming back again. The amenities are great for kids and adults. They make you feel welcome at this resort and they have every style of room to fit your needs. Plus you not in the hustle and bustle of myrtle.
One of my favorite places to stay in Myrtle Beach. The best breakfast buffet on the Strand and all familiar faces. I can't say enough about this place except to keep it a secret. It has great personnel, great rooms and atmosphere and the breakfast is hard to beat. The homemade omelets are worth the trip. Good parking and great water activities for the kids and great small local bar for the adults to have a beverage before heading out. What more can I say except that i forgot the great pool bar with food, yum and the game room!!! This is a gem people, you can't beat this place.
Customer Service is the best. We have been coming to Oceanreef every March break for almost 20 years. It appears that the majority of the staff have been working here for a long time, which tells me that it must be a great place to work as well as stay at.
I really enjoyed my stay at the Ocean Reef Resort. The rooms were great And the housekeeping was excellent. I would definitely recommend this resort to my family and friends.
We love Mrytle Beach & Ocean Reef!
Have stayed here several times over the years. Use their golf package, and have been very pleased with therncomfort of the ocean front room, the cost of our stay, the very pleasant breakfast room each day, and the openrncooperation of their golf department. We come down in November when the traffic is easy, and therncrowds at the restaurants are tolerable to say the least. Will be coming down again this November as well, andrnare looking for it big time!
From Sylva North Carolina what a great place to spend a few days. We fully enjoyed our stay at the Ocean Reef Resort in North Myrtle. While we were there we enjoyed great entertainment at Carolina Opry. Great breakfast meals at resort. Friendly people everywhere we went. Plenty shopping malls close by. Plenty things to do at Broadway at the Beach. Great food at the original Captain Benjamin's in North Myrtle. We will be back.
from planning to arriving the service from the staff was great, I was celebrating my 50th birthday with 8 sisters and 1 daughter. and they made us feel so at home. and the people was so friendly. one must show theirselves friendly to have friends. and I call the ocean reef staff my friends in south Carolina.
What is not to love about Myrtle Beach.....the beach, food, friends.... time to unwind on Myrtle Beach time.
Myrtle Beach.com is so great. It keeps us up to date on anything new we want to see or do when we come to visit. We come every Sept for 3 weeks and we've been coming since 1981 when our oldest daughter was 3. Now we have grandchildren and love to have them down here when we come as often as they can. It tells us about the up and coming things at Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing. Our 2 favorite places. Plus all the new places to eat in the area.
We had an absolutely wonderful relaxing stay at the Ocean Reef Resort. This beach front property has some thing for every member of the family. Kids loved the water park and slide as well as the lazy river. The rest of the family enjoyed the hot tub as well as the pool. Not to mention the ocean which we all enjoyed. The property has a wonderful buffet breakfast which is included in the price of the room if you book directly with the property otherwise the breakfast is $9.99. In the evening you can rent a movie which is included in the room rate or you can head over to the game room which has Giant checkers, ping pong, and assorted video games. We will be back!!! Fun Times for all of us !!!
We visit ocean reef every time we can. We love it. The pool, dj, restaurant, and kids slide. Fabulous year after year
My husband and I stay at the Ocean Reef every year in September. This year, we had two visits - one in May and one in September. We love the proximity to the Tanger Outlets, grocery stores, and restaurants. We always start our day with the fabulous breakfast bar. The friendly staff is always polite and helpful. We spend our days lounging by the pool, playing a friendly game of ping pong in the arcade area, and enjoying the beach. We end our day with a relaxing sit in the jacuzzi. We have stayed at many hotels near the downtown area, but we prefer the quiet of the Ocean Reef. The Ocean Reef has so many amenities that make it the perfect place for families! We enjoy it so much we are planning an extended family trip next fall! Give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
This was our third stay at this resort and as usual we found it clean, comfortable and loads of fun. The pool was a little crowded but since we went at peak season this year that was not a surprise! The poolside "eclipse"party was great although we couldn't view the eclipse because of the clouds,lol!!
Missed last year,due to Death in family, and Hurricane. I have stayed at the Ocean Reef, for all of those years, but one. That's got to say something. Friendly and helpful staff, who remember you. Great golf, maybe rained out five times in over 150 rounds. Never a bad time in Myrtle.
Have been coming to this property since the early 90's. The location is great. The hotel is clean, th staff is very courteous. Enjoy staying here every year. Would tell anyone to stay at Ocean Reef. Most of my relatives have been staying now.
Stayed 3 nights at Ocean Reef and enjoyed every minute of it. Had everything you need right there in reach.
Nice accommodations great breakfast each day and the courses we chose to play were beautiful.
Love, love, love it, every year !
Great great away love staying at Ocean Reef clean rooms and great staff.
We love the Ocean Reef Hotel. We have stayed at the Ocean Reef a number of times. The rooms have always been very clean and quite nice. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. On our last stay, I was greeted at breakfast one morning by a hostess who recognized us. She came over a gave me a big hug. What a nice way to start the day! Their service all around is exceptional. We will be staying there again in September. I am looking forward to it!
The staff was very accommodating during a very busy and stressful time. My cousin was getting married on the beach at this hotel and everything was beautiful. The rooms were excellent, clean and large. We had 3 separate bedrooms, a large living space and a decent size balcony overlooking the pool w/an ocean view.
Our third visit to Ocean Reef Resort and we will definitely be back with family and friends. The property was very clean and well maintained as during our first two visits.
Our room was very clean. The breakfasts each morning in the restaurant were better than I thought they would be (eggs made to order). Each staff person we encountered was very friendly and helpful.
Ocean reef was great as always. Mb. Is always great and fun. Love it there. So much to do. Food is always great. My best vacation spot winter and summer. Have been conning there 24 yrs
Ocean reef ok is a clean hotel with the best breakfast on the beach. The staff is always friendly and helpful.
The hotel was beautiful, clean and offered many amenities for a wonderful vacation! We are going back to the same hotel this year!
Very clean. Wonderful stay.
We loved our room. It was the King Parlor. Super clean and spacious. Staff is always helpful and the pool is awesome. We love having our morning coffee outside on the deck facing the ocean. We've been going to Myrtle Beach since 1982, only missing twice. Our family has the best memories there. It's home away from home.
This is a great hotel to stay for your visit. Always very friendly, very clean with updates in the kitchen and baths, and don't miss trying the breakfast buffet. Great food and the friendliest waitstaff I've ever encountered in MB!
The staff are friendly and accommodating. We always stay at the Ocean Reef and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. We love the pools, the Café Du Port and all the amenities!! They also have lots of activities for the kids. Ocean Reef is also in the perfect location in MB and have referred friends to the Ocean Reef and they now won't stay anywhere else! They make you feel so welcome!
Our extended weekend was great. The room was clean and the staff was very friendly. Loved having breakfast outside on the patio. What a great way to start the day! Didn't really mind that parking garage was across the street.
We loved staying at Ocean Reef, Myrtle Beach is beyond great! We could have honestly stayed anywhere and been happy. We have only been able to make the trip once due to finances but it was amazing! We would love to be able to take our children again, now that our daughter is old enough ro remember a lot of the experience.
We stayed at Ocean Reef 2 years in a row. We went back last year because we had such a wonderful time the first time. This time we brought my inlaws and they can't wait to go back.The Hotel was great and the staff was friendly. My kids loved the pool. Can't wait to go back
We LOVE Myrtle Beach and our family has been vacationing at Myrtle Beach every year since 1978! We always stay at the Ocean Reef. We love the area there and the hotel is fantastic. It is always sparking clean and you couldn't find a nicer staff. Some of the staff is the same people we got to know in the 70's! It's like coming "home" again each year when we arrive. The South Carolina breeze can be felt nonstop there and it is a very family friendly area. There are so many places to go and restaurants to try within just a mile or two. We have recommended Myrtle Beach and the Ocean Reef to friends and now they want to return year after year as well. We already have our reservations for this August and can't wait! We absolutely can't miss our MB vacation! Even when traveling to Disneyworld 3 years ago we were able to fit our MB vacation in by staying at MB for 3 days on our way to Florida and then for 4 days on our way back (we live in PA). It worked perfectly and made the trip SO much more enjoyable! My 8year old grandson loves to travel but won't give up our MB trip for anywhere else and neither will we!
Great place and great people. Ocean front is the only way to stay .
The room was great we had 2 bedrooms, kitchen, living room best part it was oceanfront. Everything was convenient. We could walk just about every where we wanted to go. The pools were awesome and the beach was beautiful!
The staff are very friendly and courteous.
Our Hotel was nice. It had a lot of accomdiations and it was on the beach.
We've stayed many times and it's always clean! Never had an issues with the rooms. We love coming to Myrtle Beach and our family always has a blast!
Very clean, nice hotel with friendly staff. The pool areas are awesome. The only drawback is that the hotel is so big, when you go out onto the beach, there are people EVERYWHERE. We carried our stuff a little further down just to have some extra space.
My stay was very nice my daughters had a wonderful time.the view from the balcony was awesome.
We had a wonderful stay with no problems. The hotel was very accommodating to our needs and we could of just spent our whole vacation relaxing at the hotel if we wanted to because they have just about everything there. We had no problems finding local attractions and the concierge was very helpful!!
We had a wonderful time with a great oceanfront room. We spent time on the beach, at the pool, in downtown Myrtle Beach, on the SkyWheel, various restaurants and Club 2001. Our hotel room was clean and comfortable and all the people we met were very nice.
The arrival was fast and easy and very helpful. The hotel was clean and well decorated. Found the staff wonderful and polite. The pool and main area were inviting and tidy. Staff all about. Very much enjoyed our stay !
Resort was nice and clean, Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.
Wondeful. Clean.honest staff. Not enough room to write all the positive. Will always stay there. We have for the past 10 years
This was my second year staying at the Ocean Reef Resort. In my opinion it's the best place to stay at Myrtle Beach. You are close to all the top attractions, the staff gies out of their way to help you, and the place is kept extremely clean. I recommend the Queen Ocean Parlor rooms when you visit.
Everything and everyone was just wonderful;.Can't think of one bad thing .
Enjoyed staying here last year! Clean, staff was great!
We loved Ocean Reef Resort so much last May 2012, we just made reservations for September. Taking all the kids and grandkids. Love all their pools and stuff for the kids to do and love the easy access to the beach!
Myrtle Beach/Ocean Reef has become like a 2nd home to us. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The rooms are like a "home away from home".
Have stayed at The Ocean Reef for the last 2 summers. I am coming back in July for another week. Traveling with a larger group this time, so we booked a 4 BR condo. There is plenty to do for all. Very kid friendly. Can't beat the location. The resort is close to many restaurants and attractions. I Have stayed at other places in Myrtle and this is by far my favorite place. Have read some negative reviews, but other than our room not being ready when we arrived last summer (well after check in time) I don't have any complaints. Can't wait till July!
Ocean Reef is wonderful; have stayed there before. Rooms are clean and comfortable; staff is great. The weather was not good the weekend I stayed but that could not be helped;
The hotel was very clean and accomodating
The view was excellent, the staff was wonderful!!! It was everything I thought it would be and more.
i love your beach,but the most important part is where you stay and i fell like the ocean reef is my home away from home,this is such a wonderful place to stay,your city is so clean and it is a wonderful place to bring my family,great for kids,make them feel like they are so welcome,myrtle beach is paradice to me
The best resort I have ever stayed at. Everything was wonderful.
Very clean and the staff was great. We would love another get away like the first one. It was our anniversary (38th)
Awesome place to stay, very clean!
Have been there with my family ( daugters and grand kids ) Great hotel with wather playground for the kids. This happened 4 years ago and they still talk about it.rnVery comfortable 3 bedroom condo that every one enjoyed.
Stayed there while vacationing at Myrtlebeach. Loved it!! It had all the amenities we were looking for and was right on the beach. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. We had breakfast every morning there which was very good. They were friendly wait staff and took special requests. Definitely would go back!!
We enjoyed the resort very much it was clean parking was ok
My stay in Myrtle Beach was off season which was a great idea for me and my mate. It was quiet, clean and accessible to everything we wanted. Thanks for an awesome time!
Ocean Reef Great Hotel, Love the location and the buffet breakfast in the mornings.
Everyone was so very cordial and welcoming! Wonderful buffet breakfast included every morning we were there. Just a great place to stay. Elevators were very close to our rnRoom. Very clean and nice.
Enjoyed our stay very much, nice Hotel, nice beach and enjoyed eating at the Bimini sea food bar in North Myrtle Beach and enjoyed the shows and hope to be able to return someday.
Very friendly staff,clean rooms,...ocean views are great...
This is a great place to stay for a long weekend or longer stay. It's a complete resort with most rooms having a terrific ocean view.
First time staying here and loved it! We got an absolutely amazing deal on a 3 bedroom condo which was almost too good to believe! Convenient to just about everything. Really could hardly ask for more. No free breakfast was a bummer, and the pool slide was closed our entire time there. Those were just about the only downsides. The free DVD rentals are a nice touch. Our stay also came with extras like a free laser tag game for one adult, free Rockin' Jump 30 min. pass for one, free all day go cart pass for one, etc. I think that was only for a limited time though.Not sure if we just came at the absolutely perfect time or what, but if we could have the same experience we would most definitely choose Ocean Reef again every single time we visit MB!
Great staff. Friendly and accommodating. Rooms clean and comfortable and great views. I have been here several times and would return. Always a good experience!
Our stay @ ocean reef was very pleasant.
Our stay was very pleasant. The staff was very friendly and accomadating. We only ate breakfast at the Resort, it was delicious and filling. I had a problem with my key to access the computer room, and they were there in a few minutes to help me. The resort was very busy, but for me they found the time to make my stay enjoyable.
The staff are friendly and room and property are very neat and clean. The pools are sparkling and refreshing. Just steps from the beach I can't se what else you could want.. except minutes away from fresh loval seafood. Impressed.
EVERYTHING WAS FINE, AND WHAT WAS EXPECTED. EXCEPT, A SIGN STATED YOU WERE NOT ALLOWED TO BRING YOUR OWN DRINKS TO THE POOL AREA, YOU HAD TO BUY THEIRS. THAT SUCKED.
The hotel was wonderful. Plenty of fun, entertainment, food and convenience for the entire family!! We all had a great time!!
people friendly great location when I had a problem they took care of it right away
The hotel was under going construction for a new water park but the hotel was still in great condition. The beach area was awesome and the nightly entertainment was great. The hotel is a great family experience.
My husband and I decided to come here for my birthday, and it was both of our First time there. It was mid-September so it wasn't too crowded, but enough people to not be bored. Next time I will get a rent a car and probably just go out to eat for dinner, but make my own lunch and breakfast in the hotel.
The Ocean Reef hotel was great! We had a balcony room overlooking the beach and my 2 year old loved playing in pools at the hotel and enjoyed learning the boogie board on the private beach area! We also loved Broadway at the Beach and the Ripley's aquarium! We can't wait to come back.
Great service, elevators need to be serviced.
Bed was hard-not firm but hard. Other than that had a wonderful stay there.
Nice resort! Cooking utensils were minimal, though.
Had a blast will return every year
It was enjoyable and very nice. Loved the wirlpool the most while I was there
it was very nice the staff was great the only thing i would change is the bed
Nice staff. Friendly. Rooms have been remodeled. Very nice. Always enjoy this hotel!
The staff is always friendly & helpful. Housekeeping is always checking to see if extra towels, etc. are needed. Love the location!
It was a great vacation. Was our first family trip with our son. He loved the splash pads. Hotel room was clean.
rooms were nice, clean on our arrival. housekeeping seemed a little lazy and lax during our stay. comfortable beds, and friendly staff.
The hospitality is always wonderful at Myrtle Beach. Everyone is friendly and welcoming.
Little crowded & busy, bu tit was the 4th of July weekend so it was expected, but we had a great time.
I enjoyed the hotel accommodations. Nice staff.
They were in the middle of a remodel which kinda had thing in a uproar, but the hotel facilities were great
We absolutley LOVED everything about it. Want to go back again!!
the guest services were wonderful we try to stay here every year .the hotel staff are always very nice and helpful.my family will not stay anywhere else.
Was glad to leave due to arrival of bikers.
stay was great.room was so so clean(but when you havent taken your family on vacation in 4 years who cares!)my my kids are diabled so they made sure i had a ground floor room.that was cool.
Stay was pleasant.
Felt the room wasnt clean. Appliances were broke or near broke. Nice view of the beach and ocean though.
My husband and I have been here for youth retreat and couples retreat. Loved the resort but didn't like it being away from everything and not be able to walk to different places.
Stay is ok , Hotel is ok will be visiting soon again
Ocean Reef is ideal if you are looking for fun on your next trip to Myrtle Beach. Race down our favorite water amenity, the lagoon launcher located in Ship Wreck Waterpark, take a lap around our relaxing in and outdoor lazy river and don’t forget to grab a drink or tasty treat at the newly renovated Banana Boat Lounge. There is tons more to do at Ocean Reef and we can spend all day telling about the fun and excited in store for you when you stay at Ocean Reef Resort.
