Captain's Quarters in Myrtle Beach

School is starting and all I can think about is how I wish we could head back to the beach. For our family vacation this year, we went to Myrtle Beach. We thought we should find a vacation spot that was a bit more family friendly, and a resort that also believed in having a family-friendly experience.

We already planned to stay at the Captain's Quarters Resort, but I had the opportunity to get pushed up to one of their premier suites to include in our vacation spot. It was beautiful! Everything in the room was upgraded. There were granite countertops in the kitchen and the bathroom. The stone floor was a nice addition and really gave the room a luxurious look. The little decor touches like the mirror and the stylish lampshade and chairs also gave it a very modern twist. This was the nicest suite that my family has stayed in, and we would definitely return.

Why you ask? As nice as this room was, we did not stay inside all day long. In the resort alone there were so many things to do! This is a fabulous resort to stay in for a family. The Level 6 Bowling was awesome. My little ones never bowled before, and they loved it! You could also get get a meal and drinks there as well if you wanted to do a little dinner and have fun all at the same time. If your kids love arcade games, then they would love the Level 6 Arcade as well where they would have fun playing all of the games. There is of course several things to do in Myrtle Beach as well. You have a large selection of restaurants to choose from, and a tradition that we do in our family, miniature golf.

You could head to the 9th floor and visit the Vista Nine, which is a oceanfront restaurant. Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to visit the restaurant. My husband has so many restaurants on his list already, we just could not fit it all in. The resort had several pools and hot tubs as well. My kids favorite was the Shipwreck Lagoon Waterpark. There are mushroom waterfalls, leaky cannons, and much more! There are several other pools both indoor and out to experience, as well as the lazy river. All of this too much for you? Go grab a drink at the Soggy Dollar Pool Bar. During the summer you are also able to watch Chief Kamu's Fire and Hula Show. This is amazing! You have to head down early though or it can be very difficult to grab a seat, especially during the 4th of July week.

We had a ton of fun. Other amenities included a laundry facility on site, and a fitness room. The staff was very helpful and came right away if there was anything needed in the room. We were steps away from the beach as well. I LOVE the beach, and I'm thrilled that my kids do as well. My husband and daughter were able to enjoy their boogie boards in the water while my son played in the sand. It was perfect!

The Captain's Quarters has amazing deals going on right now for the month of September. What is better than heading to the beach after your little ones gets out of school on Friday? Enjoy two fun-filled days at the Captain's Quarters and head back just in time for school. You can enjoy rates as low as $49 a night! That is an awesome price, and I cannot believe the rates are that low at such a great resort.

I love CQ! Whenever I go to MB this is where I stay. A group of my friends usually go for a week around Halloween. said...

I know! I feel just the same way. And I didn't have a vacation or enjoy this summer at all. =/ Well, I went once to the beach and one bbq, but that was about it.
Work, work, work...
