Crown Reef Beach Resort and Waterpark is Family Haven

Crown Reef Beach Resort and Waterpark is a family fun resort located oceanfront near the south end of Myrtle Beach; this resort is one of the top destinations along the Grand Strand for families. A rich history, scenic oceanfront rooms, and generous “kid approved” amenities are just a few reasons why guests can’t stop buzzing about Crown Reef Beach and Waterpark Resort. These are the top five reasons Crown Reef is a haven for families:

Family Sized Accommodations

Crown Reef Resort offers six unique oceanfront accommodation options to ensure guests will find exactly what they are looking for without being overwhelmed with choices. Most rooms have a view of the ocean, they range from deluxe rooms to suites, making it easy to find your best fit AND stick to your budget. The suites and efficiencies offer full kitchens, ideal for longer stays and quick meals. Crown Reef is one of the only hotels in Myrtle Beach to offer Jacuzzi Suites – available in a Queen Jacuzzi Suite or a King Jacuzzi Suite. All guests will get to enjoy the ocean breeze from their private balcony, perfect for an early morning cup of coffee or winding down after a busy day at the beach.

Enclosed Waterpark

The oceanfront waterpark  is a huge hit with guests of all ages. The waterpark includes two winding slides that are enclosed and seasonally heated – the TWISTER Body Slide and the EXPLOSION Tube Slide. The slides lead guests down into the play portion of the waterpark which also features the KIDZ Twister slide, a silly sub, water tree house, and plenty of splash room. This area is open-air during the summer and is enclosed and heated during the cooler months for year round use. Crown Reef also offers a 575-foot oceanfront lazy river, one of the longest in Myrtle Beach, a spacious oceanfront pool deck with several sparkling pools and whirlpools, and direct access to the sandy shoreline.

On-site Arcade

Are you looking to beat the heat or escape a rare rainy beach day? If so, be sure to check out the Game On! Video Arcade and Redemption Center, conveniently located oceanfront on the lobby level of the resort inside the Town Center Fun Zone. The arcade offers a slew of both classic and contemporary games like air hockey, Doodle Jump, Pac-Man, Monopoly, and more! The arcade is run on a state of the art card system - gone are the days of change machines and toting quarters; just add a specified amount of money to a game card and play till you need to reload. The games dispense tickets that can be traded in for cool prizes at the redemption center, Winner’s Circle.

“Kid Approved” Dining

Finding the energy to make dinner after a busy day of soaking up the sun can be daunting. Even getting dressed up and rallying the crowd for a stuffy dinner on the town might seem exhausting. Don’t fret, Crown Reef has a solution for this common dilemma! Good eats, cool drinks, and killer ocean views are just a few reasons why families and groups of any size enjoy dining at Loco Gecko Beach Shak. Loco Gecko offers a casual, “come as you are” atmosphere and tasty beach treats that will help you refuel. Menu selections include wings, pizzas, burgers, sandwiches, salads, wraps, and fried baskets – plenty to please even the pickiest palate. Other on-site dining options include Swirl Ice Cream & Sweet Shop, the Grab n’ Go Grill & Coffee Bar, and the seasonal Pool Bar & Grill.
