Samantha Norton's avatar By Samantha Norton Follow me on Google+

What’s more satisfying than finding a resort that has all the amenities you and your family want so that you never have to leave?  Crown Reef Resort is just what you have been looking for! Here are 10 reasons why you and your family should stay at Crown Reef!

1. We start the list with the most important start to any parent’s day…no not breakfast, coffee of course. Coffee gets you geared up for a full day of frolicking between the beach and the pool and coaxing your kids into nap time so they can enjoy nightly activities. Coming to the Town Center Dining, Entertainment and Fun Zone in mid-April, you can get your daily fix of caffeine at Grab N’ Go Grill & Coffee Bar.

2. Speaking of breakfast, after your fortifying dose of coffee, wake the kids up and head to breakfast. Crown Café features a mouth watering breakfast buffet to satisfy even the biggest appetites. In the mood for something lighter, choose your favorite dish off of our a la carte menu and express breakfast, featuring hearty omelets and home-style French toast. Come somewhat hungry or completely famished and leave ready to take on the day with a fueled family.

3. Activities! There are so many activities to partake in and to watch when you stay at Crown Reef Resort! We will be featuring some of Myrtle Beach’s favorite seasonal performers this year! We will welcome our very own mascot Salty the Shark to entertain and pose with the kids for photos. Captain Sneaky and Tiki Bird will be making weekly appearances to delight children and adults alike. And weekly the ever entrancing Chief Kamu Fire Shows will be taking place on the pool deck.

4. While you are here make sure you stop by the Fun Zone in the Town Center, coming in mid April 2014 the Video Game and Redemption Center will be open and boasting classic arcade games as well as many modern games to play for tickets. The tickets can be redeemed at the Redemption Center for a variety of prizes.

5. Crown Reef Resort is also located close to popular area attractions and activities. Some of our favorites are Ripley’s Aquarium and Ripley’s Odditorium. Other entertaining family activities that will keep your children in awe are Wonderworks, Family Kingdom and Nascar Speedpark. Take advantage of your VMB card and get discounts at all of the above locations as well as many more!

6. The longest Lazy River in Myrtle Beach at 575 feet is located in the middle tower of Crown Reef and a relaxing way to spend an afternoon.

7. Coming soon to Crown Reef is our very own waterpark! The waterpark will hover 40 feet above the ground and feature two slides, The Twister and the Explosion Tube Waterslide! Also featured will be an all ages enclosed fun area. Crown Reef Resort Waterpark will be open year round, so rain or shine, cold or hot, you can get your water fun on!

8. Pools, pools and more pools! Pools to please everyone! We have a tropical island pool and a heated indoor pool we also have our 125-foot oceanfront pool for the adults and big kids. Or take the younger kids to one or our three kiddie pools. Looking to relax and wind down? Try one of our 11 whirlpools and let your worry and stress float away.

9. We also will be opening our newest restaurant, Loco Gecko Beach Shak, mid April in the Town Center. Loco Gecko Beach Shak will feature American Fare with a Myrtle Beach twist and some southern favorites like fried pickles! Don’t forget to ask about our specialty cocktails like an Island Margarita or the ever favorite Texas Margarita to sip along with your lunch or dinner.  After a satisfying dinner stop on down to Swirl Ice Cream and Sweet Shop to satisfy your sweet tooth on a hot summer day.

10. One of the most exciting Crown Reef features to look forward to are our newly updated and upgraded rooms! The upgrades are set to be complete mid April 2014. Some of the most exciting features are all new kitchens with beautiful cabinets and counter tops and stylish appliances. The rooms will sport new carpet and paint along with new furniture and beds for an all around sparkling and beautiful feel. You will be tempted to never leave your room but we promise you do not want to miss out on all the amenities and activities to be had at Crown Reef Resort!
