The Best Pools in Myrtle Beach

Pools in Myrtle Beach are a must-have amenity, and for many, staying at hotels with the best water features can transform a good trip into a great one. To help you find the right resort for your next stay in the Grand Strand, we’ve gathered a list of the top 10 Myrtle Beach hotels with pools. If you love water parks, discover excellent properties with sprawling splash zones, lazy rivers, and wild waterslides. And if relaxation is your jam, we’ve included the best hotel pools in Myrtle Beach for lounging around that offer spacious pool decks, hot tubs, swim-up bars, and all the extras adults love. Those who fall between these two points will find resorts on this list that offer a little of everything, indoors and out. 

When planning the best time to visit, remember that some of these beautiful pools aren’t all open year-round. Most hotels have indoor pools that never close, but outdoor pools are available only seasonally. If you arrive in March before the weather warms up, you’ll find pools open at Dunes Village, The Breakers, Avista, and other properties with fully enclosed indoor poolscapes for swimming, splashing, and soaking. April brings warmer temperatures, so you’ll find most outdoor pools are open at the start of the month, allowing you to choose from all of the area’s hotels for your spring getaway.

You really can’t go wrong with any Myrtle Beach hotel or pool, but our list will help you find the best match for your next couples getaway, girls’ trip, or family vacation.

Compass Cove Resort

2311 S Ocean Blvd, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577

based on 331 reviews

This hotel on the south side of Myrtle Beach is deceptively impressive. The small covered pool area is actually a water wonderland. The retractable roof allows for sun or protection from rain. The waterslides are a thrill for adults and kids, and the pool area also features hot tubs, a lazy river, and a kids’ splash park with a yellow submarine. But the best offerings are on the oceanside, which includes two spacious pools, hot tubs, a waterslide, and the top shuffleboard courts in town.

Breakers Resort

Ocean front at 21st and 27th Ave N, Myrtle Beach, SC 29578

based on 346 reviews

This multi-building complex encompasses tons of water-related fun that makes it one of the best pools in Myrtle Beach for families. A giant pirate ship is the centerpiece of a children’s water playground with shallow water and small slides, and you’ll notice statues of pirates throughout the facility. Bigger kids and adults will enjoy The Cove, the oceanfront indoor water park that offers four fun slides, rain or shine. With 19 total water features, vacationers can take advantage of many outdoor pools and hot tubs, a winding indoor/outdoor lazy river, indoor pools, and more.

Beach Cove Resort is home to one of the best pools in Myrtle Beach thanks to its tropical outdoor oasis full of pools and privacy.

Keep the kids busy with the 350-foot lazy river or let them play under the fun mushroom-shaped fountain in their own kiddie pool.

The list of water amenities at this multi-building complex is long and comes with all the usual features, plus some unusual extras. The indoor pool provides year-round fun, and the outdoor pool, lazy river, and kids’ waterpark will meet your expectations and keep children busy, but the seventh floor is where the Caravelle sets itself apart. This area features an outdoor sun deck that allows you to soak up some rays without the beach crowds, and a glass-enclosed pool that literally lets you swim in the sky. The St. Clement’s Beach Bar nearby is a great place to hang out and play beach volleyball with locals.

Dunes Village Resort

5200 N Ocean Blvd, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577

Often considered the best pool in Myrtle Beach, the indoor water park at this property has something for every kid or kid at heart, and the outdoor amenities are just as nice. Thanks to the 30,000 square feet of water fun, you can park the car at check-in and leave it there until check-out. The north tower includes thrilling waterslides and the south tower features a lazy river and a kids’ zone with a shallow pool outfitted with sprinklers, waterfall buckets, and a submarine play area. The indoor water park is heated and fully enclosed seasonally so you can enjoy it any time you visit.

Grande Cayman Resort

7200 N Ocean Blvd, Myrtle Beach, SC 29572

based on 123 reviews

This is the best pool in Myrtle Beach for a winter getaway or a summer escape. When it’s cool outside, the Grande Cayman can enclose a large portion of its waterworks to make it feel like summertime year-round. A large pool and lazy river are heated to the perfect temperature and the sauna and hot tubs are always comfortable and relaxing. The outdoor amenities allow you to enjoy the summer sun on the oceanfront pool deck, complete with hot tubs, sun lounges, and a seasonal water park.

North Beach Resort & Villas

based on 107 reviews

The beachfront pool is an oasis for guests looking for a getaway in the Carolina sun. Adults appreciate lounging on the pool shelves, and even though the swim-up bar was one of the first in the area, it remains one of the best pools in Myrtle Beach. Kids enjoy the large oceanfront pool and the lazy river indoors is fun for all ages.
