“Kid Friendly!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

We recently stayed at the Caravelle and we were pleasantly surprised! We booked an Ocean View Suite, Monday-Friday, and it was perfect for two moms and three kids (husband-free week). We had wonderful views of the beach and the pools. The room was clean and comfortable with two double beds and a Murphy bed in the living room. The kids LOVED all of the pools and lazy rivers! It was nice having a full size fridge and microwave in the room because we were able to save money by eating breakfast and lunch in the room. We ate at the poolside bar and restaurant a couple times....pretty good and the kids loved the ice cream!
A few gripes...
1. Parking was tight and limited. HATED parking across the street and unloading with 3 small children.
2. The elevators were SLOW. My advice, use the ones by the pool, not the parking garage.
3. Wish housekeeping would have vacuumed and wiped the table daily. They didn't replace the towels one day and when we called the front desk, they didn't seem worried about it???

Overall it was a fun week and the kids really enjoyed it. I think we would stay again!

Our room was suitable for what we paid and the location. My son and I had an efficiency, and found it was all we needed. A couple of beds and a small table with flat screen TV and a chair.. The hotel has lots of onsite amenities so you don't have to go far to have fun. Our view was oceanfront as we always get so that was great also. One thing I hated - people smoking at every exit so you always had to pass the 'butthounds..'

I have been reading reviews on here for years and just started posting recently. There is one constant thing with these places - som reviews are outstanding, and some people have the worst time, so I will share this with you.

Here is what I have learned - RENT FROM OWNERS. Use VRBO or something similar, read the reviews of the room you book and about the owners and you will generally fair better in the long run. Most of the owners take pride in their condos, keep them clean and appreciate the repeat business. You bypass the management and front desk, get a good rate, and a nicer place 9 times out of 10. I've been using VRBO for many years and have found the reviews and pics of the place are great.

Thank you so much for choosing accommodations with the Caravelle. We are delighted that you and your family enjoyed your stay with us. For over 50 years, the Caravelle has not only offered accommodations, but we have also taken pride in offering our guests a terrific overall vacation experience … from accommodations and guest services to great rates on golf packages and discounted prices on show tickets. Having an on-site office gives our guests the advantage to attend various shows & attractions at special rates with no need to stand in line waiting for tickets. We offer daily housekeeping, so there is no need to bring linens. Guests of the resort also enjoy pool-side towel service, are able to take part in our children’s activity program, and use our computer center located in the hotel lobby. In addition, the Caravelle staff is available 24 hours a day to meet the needs of all of our quests who rent through our offices.

We extend promotions and specials via facebook and the website to ensure ease in making reservations.

The Caravelle is proud to say that we have many families that have been staying with us for years (from childhood to adulthood) … and we now enjoy watching their children & grandchildren make memories with us. Thank you again for your review, and we hope that you will be our guest again.

My family and extended family have stayed at the Caravelle Resort for nearly 20 years now. It has been remodeled in or around 2009 and is even nicer than before, now with granite countertops and flat panel tv's. We particularly enjoy the spacious efficiency rooms that comfortable sleep 6 or 8 and have a full kitchen. Many of these rooms adjoin, so large families can share space during the day. The balconies feature a great view of the strand, close enough to the beach to watch the pelicans and pods of dolphins swim by. The pools are kept very clean and the lazy river is a favorite with kids and lazy adults alike. The location in North Myrtle beach is perfect for getting quickly to the better restaurants, golf, Broadway at the beach or Barefoot Landing without having to be "downtown" in the more crowded urban hotel area.

Room Tip: Efficiencies are a great way tosave money on a family vacation by eating simple meals of cereal or s...

We found the staff courteous and the room really nice... Great breakfast on-site... The room was clean and maintenance responded immediately when there was an issue with our TV. We were married 3 weeks prior and this was our second stay overall. Nice hotel!

This is a nice hotel if ur on a budget. The hotel is old but its kept up nicely. We stay in a double bed effiency. The view from the 10th floor was amazing! We woke up to dolphins swimming near the beach. The outdoor pool was nice, but didn't use much after someone popped in it. The indoor pool was great.
The elevators were slow, but not any inconvience. The maid service was not good, one would think that u ask them to come in to clean they would, but they only seemed to manage to take out the trash and bring new towels. We have a small child so there was food crumbs every where, but I guess the cleaning staff figured we should clean up after ourselves.
The beds are small and very uncomfortable, we could not get a good night sleep at all. The air conditioner also did not work well, we tried to set it on 60 but woke up sweating every mourning. We would have left the sliding glass door open at night if there was a screen for it.
All in all it was not a good stay for us, but it was the right price for the money.
