"We stayed at this condo for 5 nights at the beginning of August. The condo itself is very nice and perfectly roomy for my husband and I and our 2 young kids. The kids loved having their own room and bathroom and I loved that it was toward the back of the condo as opposed to by the balcony. The views from the large balcony and the living area and master bedroom are perfect. The nature of the condo's situation make it quite and private, even from the balcony. The resort grounds were also very nice and had lots of options for the kids and even when the beach was busy, there was still plenty of room to relax and play. Daily housekeeping was also a great plus and they did a good job of keeping the place clean. While the high floor gave the best views, it did make the walk to everything a little further, but definitely not a problem.
All of the pools are easily walk-able, however, I would note that if you have a lot of beach toys and small kids, the walk to the splash park area can get a little tiresome, but definitely not bad for the amount of times we did it. Depending on the traffic in the hotel at the time, you may want to buy ice cream and have coffee for the room as opposed to trying the snack shop in the Hilton lobby in the early morning or late evening as the line can get long. The pools were quite crowded during the middle of the day as there are many of them, but none that are extremely large. This was mostly difficult with a 4 and 5 year old that have recently learned to swim, but we found it was remedied by going to the pools in the morning when they weren't busy and then heading to the beach in the afternoon.
Food at the restaurants on property that we tried was pretty good, but a bit pricey as to be expected. We enjoyed meals out or in the room most of the times. The pool decks say there are no coolers allowed and no outside alcohol, but we found that no one really policed this as long as you were being quiet. We toted our cooler for snacks and such during the days as well.
Overall, I would recommend this condo to anyone, especially if traveling as a small family or trip with another couple and especially if you can go off peak season a bit to avoid some of the crowds, but this is just a typical situation with peak season in a popular destination. The location of the resort though, does help to make you feel like you are in a less busy area of Myrtle Beach while still being close to everything you may want to do."
