Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Far from downtown Myrtle Beach
  • Generic, slightly dated decor
  • Smallish fitness center

Bottom Line

The 275-room Sea Watch Resort is located in a lower-key area a 20-minute drive from Downtown Myrtle Beach. Its studios and apartments all have full kitchens, as well as separate sleeping and living areas, but the decor is slightly dated, and bathrooms are nothing special. The main draw here is the wonderful beach to which the hotel has direct access, and the six pools (and ten Jacuzzis). The many kid-friendly perks, like the two lazy rivers, the game room, and the children’s activities program, make it a solid pick for families.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In a quiet area east of downtown Myrtle Beach, and close to great outlets and golf courses

The hotel is in between Downtown Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach, to the north of the Dunes Golf Course. It is a quiet area far from the crowds, but where you can find many restaurants, great shopping, and several golf clubs.

Continually ranked as one of America's best family beach destinations, Myrtle Beach offers visitors one-of-a-kind nightlife, more than 100 golf courses, and 60 miles of sandy shoreline. It's known to get a bit jam-packed, although the off-season brings smaller crowds -- but not those high southern temps ideal for sunbathing.

Also known as the Grand Strand, the coast has a number of water activities -- deep sea fishing, jet skiing, sunbathing, and those banana boat rides that will keep you from taking yourself too seriously. And although a Myrtle Beach vacation is as American as it gets, there are a surprising number of international restaurants, including African, French, and even Irish cuisine.
