Sea Watch Resort consists of two towers towering over the Atlantic. Guests stay in luxury one-, two- and three-bedroom condominiums. Units feature living rooms with Murphy-style or sofa beds, fully equipped kitchens and washer/dryers. The decor typically displays pastel colors that compliment the ocean views. Six oceanfront pools, 10 hot tubs and two lazy rivers are on the grounds. Two of the pools are covered and can be enjoyed year-round. A game room is also at the resort with arcade games such as pinball. Kids’ activities are planned throughout the year, including movie nights, pool and beach games.
Captain’s Cove Cafe offers breakfast buffets with Southern comfort foods, like French toast and bacon. Seasonal lunches and dinners are also served. A coffee shop is a must-see for children, as they also serve ice cream sundaes and banana splits.
The resort is minutes away from Tanger Outlets and Restaurant Row in Myrtle Beach.

After a rocky start involving us being given key cards that didn't work for our assigned room, and then Jerome, from Maintenance, (He was the best!) coming to let us in only to find the door damaged and the room having a bit of a strange odor, we were treated to an upgrade on the floor I had originally requested (My husband's fear of heights makes him uncomfortable on a high balcony, so I had requested something on the 4th floor). So sorry I don't remember the name of the lovely woman from Guest Services who showed us to our new room. It was quite the upgrade, a beautiful 2 BR condo on the 4th floor.
Great location on the beach. Close to many stores, activities and restaurants. Some rooms are more dated than others. I would recommend asking for an update room at reservation and check in and also get the breakfast package if you like to start your day with breakfast. Parking deck isn't bad and feels safe when you are in it. Staff is friendly and professional.
