Myrtle Beach's Finest Hotels Offer Luxurious Rooms with an Ocean View

There's a reason that the best hotels in Myrtle Beach also happen to be oceanfront - location, location, location. If you've ever enjoyed a cup of coffee on your private balcony while watching the sun rise, walked out your back door and felt sand and surf between your toes, or relaxed in the ocean breeze at night after a long day, you understand the added value of staying beachfront. Myrtle Beach offers many options for families, couples and golfers looking to score some beach time during their vacation time. For families looking to keep the big ones and little ones entertained, there are oceanfront resorts like Island Vista and Dunes Village that offer large indoor/outdoor water parks so the kids can splash and play on water slides and aquatic playgrounds while the adults chill out in the lazy river and hot tubs. Couples can enjoy a romantic stay at upscale resorts like North Beach Plantation, which features a swim-up bar a la the Caribbean and the relaxing Cinza Spa. Golfers can enjoy the best of both worlds by staying at an oceanfront resort that also features an adjoining golf course, such as Litchfield Beach & Golf Club. Tee off in the morning and spend the afternoon soaking up some sun - is there a better way to spend the day? The answer, for some, is yes, and there are oceanfront hotels available up and down the Grand Strand that can match your plans and lifestyle. Here are 10 that rise above the rest.
