Ocean Creek Resort is probably one of the nicest, safest resorts I have ever had the pleasure of visiting IN MY LIFE!!! Okay, so that’s a nice way of saying it ROCKED! First, let me say that the first level of my own bi-level home is about 1100 square feet. Our room at Ocean Creek was larger than that!!! WOW! So we pulled up around 11 am, which was a little early for check-in and they went ahead and checked us in early b/c the room was ready. The check-in area is a little building just outside the security gate, which was nice because there is absolutely no way to get onto the property without registering. We got our key (yes, real metal keys) and drove a half mile towards the North Tower. We parked in the garage and unloaded all of our stuff. Now this took a while because my wife likes to pack our entire house for those ‘just in cases’. We finally got up to the eleventh floor and it just took my breath away.
The room itself isn’t a room- it’s a condo. It had two bedrooms, a kitchen the size of ours back home, a beautiful living room, two bathrooms, and a washer and dryer!! I think the latter was my wife’s favorite part because we could clean our bathing suits every day so they weren’t wet or sandy!
The room was more than I could have ever asked for. There are only about 5-7 units on each floor depending on the floor so we never heard our neighbors. In fact, we only saw them once during the four days we were there.
The view was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Yes, it was truly amazing. The balcony stretched from the living room to the master bedroom and the view was breathtaking. As soon as we got unpacked, my wife and I made the 5 minute walk to the beach with our 2 year old. Hannah was overjoyed at the amount of shells that she was able to find. The Ocean Creek Resort is in a very unique location. It is the first large hotel complex in a series of hotels that work their way up towards North Myrtle Beach. It’s isolated. That means you have quieter beaches and lots of very cool shells! Hannah was so excited as she raced across and came running back to show me her newest treasure. Lacy and I lounged on the beach and enjoyed the quiet away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Myrtle Beach. Another cool thing- Internet on the beach!! The resort has a small tiki bar that provides internet which will work on the beach!!
The resort itself has over 5 pools indoor and outdoor, but they are not located in a single building. Ocean Creek Resort is actually a LARGE resort. The towers are essentially on the ocean, but they also have villas and other condos that are a short walk away. All in all this is a fantastic, safe, quiet resort that will provide excellent memories. I really can’t say anything bad about it!! If you are planning on visiting the Myrtle Beach area, this is one of the best hotels / resorts you could ask for!
