As I mentioned the other day, my family and I took off for 3 nights, 4 days at the Captain’s Quarters Resort in Myrtle Beach last week. This is a sister resort of Crown Reef, which we visited this past fall.
Upon arrival, we checked out our Angle Oceanfront Suite. My favorite part is the full working kitchen! We were able to make food right in our room to save money and to eat healthier! This suite features a full-size refrigerator, microwave, stove, toaster, coffee maker, and basic cookware and dinnerware! It worked out perfectly for our family!
The first room in the Angle Oceanfront Suite has a double bed and a privacy door. This comes in handy when you’re on a trip as a family and the adults need a little alone time. 😉 Side note – the door did not have a lock.
From there, you walk through the kitchen and the bathroom is off the kitchen. The bathroom featured double sinks and a large shower/tub. The next room featured a King size bed and a pull out sofa. I thought I grabbed a picture of that, but I’m sorry to say that I didn’t. This room had a table with 3 chairs and a large TV with DVD player. We also had a deck with absolutely gorgeous views! Check it out!
At Captain’s Quarters Resort, we found a lot of things to fill our time. Of course we spent plenty of time walking on the beach, but honestly it was too cold to enjoy the water. My crazy kids did get their feet in, though.
Since it was the off season, what was there to do? For starters, Captain’s Quarters has their own bowling alley on level 6! It was a full working bowling alley, not anything virtual. Resort guests get a free game of bowling each night, shoe rental extra. We totally took advantage of this! Bowling alley opens at 11am every day. For the kids just learning, they offer bumpers that will pop up and help keep their bowling ball in the lane. They also have this neat dinosaur that my little girls were able to use that acted like a ramp to send the ball down the alley. I think this was the first time that many of my kids went bowling and they loved it! The alley was clean and smoke free, which is important to our family. Snacks and a game room are available in the bowling alley as well.
We tried several of the snack foods at Level Six. I loved their fried pickles and virgin strawberry daiquiris and the kids really enjoyed their slushies. Speaking of food, in the mornings, Captain’s Quarters Resort offers a breakfast buffet for an additional charge. The food was great and they even have an omelette station! YUM! You can also walk right across the street to The Loco Gecko, which is a very highly recommended restaurant for lunch and dinner items.
Besides the bowling alley, Captain’s Quarters has an indoor swimming pool, toddler pool, and lazy river that are heated. During the summer months they have more pool options, but we were very happy with the indoor options. My kids loved riding down the lazy river and swimming in the pool.
Captain’s Quarters is also located close to all the major Myrtle Beach attractions. This trip, we decided to visit Wonder Works. It ended up being a super awesome and educational place and we cannot wait to go back! I cannot say enough good things about this attraction, plus it’s close by Captain’s Quarters so you don’t have to drive very far.
Captain’s Quarters Resort is a great and affordable hotel in Myrtle Beach. I have no complaints at all from our 3 night stay other than I wish we could have stayed longer! I left the resort feeling more relaxed than I have in a while, but perhaps that is because my sweet hubby did most of the cooking 😉
