Family-Friendly Captain’s Quarters Resort in Myrtle Beach


This post was created in partnership with the Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce, opinions are my own.

Myrtle Beach is a family friendly city with lots to see and do, but a visit to Captain’s Quarters Resort is a destination within itself. Multiple indoor and outdoor pools, a lazy river, a bowling alley, an arcade, restaurants, whirlpool hot tubs, an outdoor kiddie waterpark, ocean view rooms and, of course, the mighty Atlantic Ocean just a few feet away make Captain’s Quarters a great place to stay when visiting Myrtle Beach! 

There are lots of different room configurations, so depending upon your needs it’s likely you’ll find a combination that works for you. We stayed in a Angle Ocean Front Suite, which was perfect for us! This suite includes a double bed and a flat-screen television in the bedroom, a separate living room with a king bed, double sleeper sofa, and another flat-screen television. This suite also has one bath and a kitchen with full-size refrigerator, microwave, stove, toaster, coffee maker, and basic cookware and dinnerware. 

My oldest son took the double bed room for himself and my middle son took the double sleeper sofa with the amazing view of the Atlantic Ocean right outside the large window, while my youngest and I shared the kind size bed. My middle son is an early riser and enjoyed some creative drawing time with a magnificent view while his brother were still snoozing.

We didn’t eat much in the room for this trip, but typically having a small kitchen area in a room is a lifesaver, especially in the mornings. Since not everyone tends to get up at the exact same time, it’s a great way for us to leisurely have breakfast when it works for each person. 

Our room also had a small balcony to lookout over the resort and Atlantic Ocean. The views were amazing!

My kid’s love swimming in a hotel pool! Captain’s Quarters has 15 different water features + the Atlantic Ocean, of course. There were so many different ways to have water fun!

If you don’t have time to pull together breakfast in your room there is a buffet style breakfast on the ninth floor at Vista 9, with an ocean view!

There is also a seasonal Loco Gecko Beach Shak and a Tipsy Turtle Pool Bar for additional refreshments and meal options. 

Captain’s Quarters has it’s own parking garage we regularly charted our course through the hotel to our room! 

Even if the weather is poor or you are tired of the indoor water activities there is another level of entertainment available with the Level 6 Entertainment Center! 

Bowling lanes with electronic scoring, video arcade games, a pool table, and a bar that overlooks the entertainment center, all on the sixth floor! Guests currently get one free game of bowling each day they stay (shoe rental not included). 

If you are planning a visit to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina anytime soon I highly recommend staying at Captain’s Quarters. Even if you don’t have children- the pools, ocean-view rooms and entertainment options make for a great time for adults too!
