Every year millions of visitors flock to the Grand Strand for the beach, attractions, restaurants and waterparks. Guests at Myrtle Beach’s Ocean Reef Resort can enjoy those amenities without leaving the property.

That’s right, in addition to the clean and comfortable accommodations, convenient oceanfront location and family-friendly atmosphere; Ocean Reef also offers some of the best and most luxurious amenities on the Strand. There are so many it’s hard to list them all, but here are five of the outstanding amenities to experience at Ocean Reef:

Food/Beverage: Ocean Reef happens to be located in one of the most popular dining districts in Myrtle Beach, but guests can find great food and beverage options in the resort’s lobby. Start your day with the sun rising over the Atlantic Ocean and a delicious breakfast buffet at Cafe du Port. When you start to run out of fuel from playing on the beach, dip in out of the sun for lunch and frozen drinks at the Banana Boat Cafe & Pool Bar. At night, have dinner at Cafe du Port and have a nightcap at the Banana Boat for some relaxation with an ocean view.

Indoor/Outdoor Pools: Whether it’s a beautiful day to be outside in the pool or a rainy, cloudy day for indoor activities, you can always have a splashing good time at Ocean Reef. Lounge chairs for soaking up some sun, and the indoor pool, lazy river surround the outdoor pools and hot tubs and kiddie water attractions provide a perfect alternative for beating the heat or the rain. The outdoor pool hosts a live DJ and a festive atmosphere throughout the day, and you can unwind at night in one of the hot tubs.

Kids Club: Even an ocean, beach and aquatic attractions aren’t always enough to keep the little ones entertained. They can get bored pretty quick, which is why the Ocean Reef Kids Club can be a parent’s best friend. Offering a wide range of arts and crafts projects, pool and beach games, face-painting, treasure hunts and ice cream parties, the Kids Club is designed to keep children engaged with fun activities and help them make friends with other kids staying at the resort. Check the weekly schedule upon checking in and let your little ones pick which events they want to take part in. Most activities are free but some projects that require materials come with a minimal fee.

Ship Wreck Waterpark: You can spend a lot of money taking the whole family to a waterpark in Myrtle Beach, or you can stay at the Ocean Reef and have one on the premises. Experience the new Lagoon Launcher waterslide, splash-and-play areas, tiki statues, elevated bamboo structures and a kiddie playground. The Lagoon Launcher waterslide is a twisting track that splashes down with the sounds of water and laughter. Smaller children can spend all day playing in the kiddie waterpark and parents can join in the fun or watch over the little ones from the dry comfort of a lounge chair.

Sun Fun Rewards: In addition to all the great on-site amenities at Ocean Reef, guests can also enjoy special discounts on attractions off site. For every room reserved, guests receive free admission to some of the top attractions in Myrtle Beach, including Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament, Myrtle Waves Waterpark and Broadway Grand Prix. Visitors also receive free and unlimited DVD rentals so guests can enjoy a family movie night in the room or take a break from the heat with an afternoon matinee. It’s just one of the many extras that keep visitors staying and playing at Ocean Reef Resort, Myrtle Beach.
