As a lot of you may have seen via my social media post, the kids and I spent a few days in Myrtle Beach at the Caravelle Resort. We had gorgeous weather , and quite the view.
There’s a dozen great properties along the beach to stay at, but I absolutely LOVE that the Caravelle. One, it’s been newly remodeled and its absolutely amazing on the inside. They also have an on site restaurant with reasonable prices, AND a Tiki Bar by the pool near the beach access – which really means, you literally don’t have to leave your hotel to enjoy your beach vacation.
My most favorite part of the Caravelle is that they are made like apartments – they have a full kitchen with a refrigerator/freezer, stove, microwave, coffee pot, cabinets with dishes and utensils. Making a stop at the grocery on the way in for snacks, drinks and maybe some breakfast/lunch items will really help your budget.
These rooms aren’t the rooms you crammed into with your parents over summer vacation – sharing a bed with your sibling, or being the one who has to sleep on ‘cot’ bed they brought to your room and you struggle to step over each other to go to the bathroom. They literally have ROOMS – as in multiple – and in some rooms you even have – wait for it – MULTIPLE BATHROOMS! So if you are traveling with a semi-large family , or a large family, there is no longer a need to get 2 rooms! The great thing is they are still super affordable; in fact, when reviewing prices between The Caravelle and other basic rooms, it’s CHEAPER than getting 2 basic rooms at a nearby hotel.
The kids absolutely enjoyed the pool , hot tub, and their favorite , the lazy river. There are plenty of sun chairs and seating, and what I love is it’s just a short walk to the Tiki Bar AND to the beach.
Of course the main attraction – the beach -was great. We had brought chairs and enjoyed relaxing, listening to the waves – and watching the kids build sand castles and have some much needed fun.
Their on-site restaurant the Santa Maria, has a wide variety of food to choose from, and is one of the best meals we had the entire trip. You can sit in the restaurant and eat, they have tables outside, or you can take it to go and eat in your room (or the beach, but I would recommend highly against that because the seagulls get pretty aggressive when they smell food!)
I would of been completely content with NEVER leaving the property, except for our fun night safari at TIGERS Safari (more on that soon, keep an eye out) and of course the warm, and ever so fresh Krispy Kreme donuts (it’s a tradition).
