Best Family-Friendly Hotels in Myrtle Beach
I know that beach time is family time, which is especially important when you’re on vacation. So I’ve pieced together a roundup of some of the best family-friendly hotels in Myrtle Beach for you and your family to take in the fun and make unforgettable memories!
Bay View on the Boardwalk, as the name implies, means it’s located directly on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, so the location itself is within walking distance to all the family-fun attractions, like the infamous SkyWheel, and a lineup of restaurants. On property, make time for Bay View’s indoor water amenities, including the indoor pool and lazy river, kiddie pool, a splash deck with fountains on the lawn, life-size games of chess and checkers, a Starbucks onsite, and shuffleboard overlooking Ocean Boulevard.
Kids of all ages (grown-ups included) will love all 19 water amenities at Breakers, indoors and out, including their brand-new indoor Cove Waterpark, where you can all slip, slide, and speed down the Myrtle Mayhem, Riptide Racers, Torpedo Shoot, and Twisted Typhoon. Splash the rest of the day away in the indoor and outdoor pools, indoor lazy river, the sunken pirate ship, and hot tubs. When it’s time to refuel, hit the Rusty Reel, the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream parlor, Starbucks, and more. Then it’s back to more fun in the sun with shuffleboard, cornhole, and the live pool deck dance party with DJ Ice Box from noon to 4 p.m. daily in the summer.
For the last 40 years, the oceanfront Caribbean Resort has been a mainstay on the boulevard at the beach. They’re known to take the family fun experience to the next level through their Pirate’s Plunge outdoor water feature, the 200-foot-long lazy river outside and inside, plus the game room, and onsite food options, like Starbucks, Ben & Jerrys, and an oceanfront tiki bar, as well as the award-winning, historic Sea Captain’s House restaurant right next door.
Find your way to Compass Cove, where spacious condos designed for families await and 23 water features are immersed in plenty of fun! Splash your way around the six indoor and outdoor pools, three indoor and outdoor oceanside lazy rivers, seven hot tubs, kiddie pools and Silly Submarine, and the resort’s newest water slides: the Schooner Screamer and the Compass Cruiser. More family-friendly amenities include their game room, giant chess and checkerboard, shuffleboard, a fire pit and outdoor grills to gather and eat around, and dining options onsite, like The Crow’s Nest Restaurant, Compass Rose, and more.
You’ll have a grand time at Grande Cayman Resort (formerly Long Bay Resort), the oceanfront oasis that will pamper you and the kiddos on the quieter north end of Myrtle Beach. The giggles and laughs will be loud here, though, when racing down their three-story waterslide or the Silly Sub Waterpark, gliding along the indoor 250-foot-long lazy river, or just jumping into any of the kiddie pools or indoor/outdoor pools. The fun continues with the resort’s array of games, like shuffleboard, Ping-pong, a giant chess and checkerboard, and mini golf. Dining options are conveniently on the property or nearby for family meals; choose from Starbucks, Due South at 72nd, Turtle Bay Cafe, and a Tiki Bar.
This resort tucked onto the serene north end of the beach has a lot to offer for the entire family, like six pools (two are covered and heated), two lazy rivers, breakfast and snacks at Captain’s Cove and Captain’s Nook, the Loggerhead Beach playground, a fire pit for toasting marshmallows at night, a game room, a schedule of year-round kids’ activities, and a fun poolside DJ.
You’ll find so much to fill up your days at Anderson Ocean Club, starting with their two outdoor pools, outdoor lazy river, indoor and outdoor hot tubs, indoor pool, and kiddie pool. Continue with the onsite spa, dining options, unlimited mini golf across the street, and a whirlwind of kid-friendly activities over the summer, like beach scavenger hunts, shark tooth hunts, pool games, beach jewelry making, mermaid appearances, and more.
Coral Beach welcomes your family with open arms with its wide array of amenities, including pools indoors and out, a children’s water park, an outdoor lazy river, a kiddie pool, and the Entertainment Zone that offers bowling, arcade games, a snack bar, and ice cream shop. If that’s not enough, find a spot on the sand and spend the day steps away on the resort’s beachfront!
Located across from Family Kingdom Amusement Park, Holiday Inn at the Pavilion is perfectly located in the center of family fun! On the property, you’ll also love taking advantage of their oceanfront amenities, such as the indoor and outdoor pools, kids’ activity pool, indoor lazy river, and Oceans Coffee Café.
Check into Sea Crest, where your days away will involve playtime at the indoor and outdoor pools and lazy rivers, and children’s activity pool. The oceanfront children’s water park is also a popular place, complete with a 50-foot water slide and large outdoor splash area designed with interactive topsy-turvy buckets, mushroom rain makers, and a large silly submarine that kids can climb into. The water park also offers plenty of outdoor seating for Mom and Dad to kick back and relax!
Home of one of Myrtle Beach’s best indoor waterparks, Dunes Village Resort offers plenty of playtime on the speed water slide or winding slide, indoor and outdoor pools, indoor and outdoor lazy rivers, Silly Submarine splash area, and three whirlpools. The resort also has your dining needs covered when you’re ready to refuel, with the onsite Admirals Room, Captain’s Café, Perk’s Up Coffee Shop, and Cabana Tiki Bar.
Your family is in good hands at this oceanfront resort under the Hilton brand. Located near the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, they offer a water park with slides, lazy river, and a splash pad. The ocean breeze is delicious while dining alfresco at the restaurant terrace, while other popular restaurants and entertainment, including the Skywheel, are within walking distance. Rooms and suites are impeccably designed.
