Your Guide to the Ultimate Family Vacation at Ocean Reef Resort

There’s a lot that goes into the ultimate family vacation. To achieve that lofty status, there are lots of boxes to check. You’ll need a clean, comfortable room, for starters.


One close to the fun stuff you come to Myrtle Beach for.


Location, on-site amenities, staff, convenience. They all play a part in making a vacation memorable. Families want to be close to the things they love in Myrtle Beach. But they also would like to stay in and luxuriate.


Ocean Reef is the ideal spot to find all that and more. Here’s why.


Luxury takes many forms at Ocean Reef Resort, with a lineup of styles and floor plans. All come with incredible views of the ocean and resort grounds. Choose rooms for as many as 12, with features such as full kitchen and oceanfront balcony.

Ocean Reef Outdoor Pool


Splash and slide or sit in solitude with Ocean Reef’s water features and tranquil pools. There’s a Shipwreck Water Park for young pirates, and a lazy river for anyone in need of slowing life’s pace a bit. Unwind with cornhole, oversized chess and checkers, and ping-pong, or take the short walk to the shore.


Your culinary conquest at Ocean Reef begins with a breakfast buffet at Cafe du Port, on the ocean. The Banana Boat Lounge has savory treats for your pool-area refreshment. Order your drinks and snacks in a jiffy at the poolside bar and get back out to relaxing.

Brittain Resort members get a few free perks for staying at resorts such as Ocean Reef. How about free attraction tickets, for a little fun in the sun (or out of it?) See cool places like Myrtle Waves Waterpark, Ripley’s Aquarium, and Broadway Grand Prix.


Here are three places you can eat close to the resort:


Happy Hour at Hook & Barrel


This cool place serves local seafood and hosts one of the best happy hours on the Grand Strand. Try the Ceviche and a glass of house white wine.

Lunch at Fiesta Mexicana


You’ll find delicious food, excellent service, speedy lunch, and a late-night option, too. You can’t go wrong with Mixed Fajitas and a margarita here.

Dinner at Mr. Fish Seafood Restaurant


Treat yourself to amazing seafood — the scallops are a big hit here, as is the service. Try the Crab Mac & Cheese and a Bahama Mama.
