Bottom Line

This 405-room Marriott resort is one of the few four-pearl properties in Myrtle Beach, and it's a good deal more elegant than the typical run-down chains you'll find in the area. With two lovely outdoor pools as well as an indoor one, a nice spa, two solid restaurants, and direct access to a wonderful beach, this property is a solid pick. Rooms have somewhat generic decor, but are comfy and spacious, and have large windows, most with at least partial ocean views. Plus, there's plenty to keep kids entertained, including a fun waterslide, a basketball court, a ping pong table, and a kids' club with lots of activities.

In a quiet area a 15-minute drive from the heart of Myrtle Beach

Map of Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes

The hotel is located right on the beach, next door to the Dunes Golf Course and some blocks from two large shopping centers. The area is less crowded than downtown, and it's a short drive to the heart of bustling Myrtle Beach. There’s not much in the immediate neighborhood, but if you walk a couple of blocks, you will find restaurants and bars, mostly along Highway 17.

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.
