Compass Cove Resort
This hotel on the south side of Myrtle Beach is deceptively impressive. The small covered pool area is actually a water wonderland. The covered roof is retractable, so you get sun or protection from the rainy one. Two waterslides let out in the indoor area, which also features hot tubs, a lazy river and a kids’ waterpark with a yellow submarine. But the best is on the oceanside – two big pools, hot tubs and waterslide and the best shuffleboard courts in town.
This three-building complex encompasses a hidden jewel of water-related fun. A pirate theme is pervasive, with a giant pirate ship serving as the centerpiece of a children’s water playground and statues of pirates spread throughout the facility. It also includes a long-winding lazy river, longer than a regulation football field. One outdoor pool features a stage with a live DJ and music and the Red Parrot Bar serves cold drinks to keep the pool deck hopping.
Beach Cove Resort is home a tropical pool deck with plenty of privacy and water! The oceanfront pools and whirlpools are surrounded by palm trees and bubbling fountains. 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. Breeze’s Beach Bar and Grill and the Tipsy Turtle Beach Bar are open seasonally and serve cocktails and snacks.
Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort
Hilton Myrtle Beach oceanfront at Kingston Plantation has a giant waterpark that includes 50,000 square feet of water fun. It’s conveniently located just a short walk from the beach and is the perfect place to cool off during the summer months. The park has water slides, spray spouts, jets and a giant dump bucket (possibly the largest one at the beach) plus massive pools, a lazy river and whirlpools.
This North Myrtle Beach resort is a one-of-a-kind design along the Grand Strand and offers great water amenities. Topping the list are two lazy rivers (one indoors), a kiddie pool and variety of hot tubs. They also have two outdoor pools and a climate-controlled indoor pool for the cooler seasons.
Long Bay Resort
This is the place to stay for a winter getaway. It may be cold outside, but Long Bay can enclose a large portion of its waterworks to make it feel like summertime year round. A large pool and lazy river are kept heated to the right temperature and the sauna and hot tubs are cranked up enough to boil your blood even when it’s freezing outside. It also features an large outdoor pool and a nice indoor/outdoor bar on the second level that makes it a spot for all seasons.
The Caravelle Resort
This multi-building complex features all the usual amenties – outdoor pool, lazy river, kids’ waterpark – but it’s the unusual that ranks it so high. The seventh floor features an outdoor sun deck that allows you to tan even closer to the sun without the beach crowds and a glass-encased pool that literally lets you swim in the sky. Also, although not technically part of the property, St. Clement’s Beach Bar is a great place to hang out and play beach volleyball with locals.
This resort features the best indoor/outdoor combination for those who like to have their fun in the sun and have it made in the shade. Two pools and a cave-themed lazy river are ideal for a break from the heat and two large pools on the pool deck are great for catching rays. The tiki bar and live entertainment throughout the summer months are also an added bonus.
Dunes Village Resort
Perfect for the family that wants to park its car at check-in and not move it again until check-out. The two huge towers have indoor waterparks on both ground floors. The north tower includes two giant waterslides – one twisting trip down the two-story drop and another freefall with a fast splashdown. The south tower has smaller slides, a water playground and a big lazy river. The outdoor facilities are just as nice. With all the fun under two roofs, there’s no reason to leave.
North Beach Plantation
North Beach Plantation is all about luxury, and the pool scape offers a break from the ordinary. The Caribbean themed pool area features three acres of water features, including pools, personal cabanas and plenty of space to catch some rays. The swim-up bar is not to be missed – it’s received accolades from TripAdvisor for being the best in the United States.
