Snowbird Fun
Every year we welcome our Snowbirds back to our property and offer many different activities for them to enjoy while they are here.
 
Snowbirds
The Snowbird activities have been going well this winter with our Ice Cream Socials and Bingo being a big hit. A new activity this year is our Trivia Night which is hosted at 3500 Ocean Grill on Mondays.
 
Snowbirds are our long-term guests that come and stay with us every year from a month up to 6 months during the winter. "We have enjoyed staying at Prince Resort for a month for the last three years. We enjoy the convenience of being at the pier since we fish during our visit. The accommodations are perfect for our getaway." said Kathy H., Snowbird guest.
 
If you're looking for your own home-away-from-home to ease those winter blues, contact our reservations team at 877-619-5635.

Property Improvements
Prince Resort exteriorThe Engineering Department has been working around the clock to keep Prince Resort the beautiful resort that you have come to love.
 
Renovations are usually completed during the off season months to minimize the impact on our guests. This year the Engineering team has been working on painting the doors and window trim in both towers. In addition, a gate has been installed on the 3rd floor of the parking garage to improve the security of our guest parking area.
 
We hope you enjoy our continued efforts to keep the resort pristine and up-to-date.
 
Prince Resort Hosts Softball Teams
We are proud to be home to the multitude of softball teams that visit every year for the Fast Pitch Dream Springs Classic, a softball tournament hosted in February and March at the North Myrtle Beach Sports Complex.
 
 
This group of talented young women has been staying with us for several years now and we couldn't be happier to be their host. We start their days off right with our fresh cooked breakfast buffets and end their nights with a hot dinner. The teams also love being able to come back to the hotel and relax after a day of grueling play in one of our hot tubs, pools, or lazy river.
 
Sporting events are not the only groups Prince Resort caters to. Whether you are dreaming of getting married at the beach, hoping to host a long-awaited family reunion, or are seeking a location to host a business event, we can accommodate your needs. We have spacious meeting rooms, an onsite restaurant, and an assortment of 1, 2, and 3 bedroom condos. Click here to view more information about our group and event facilities.
 
News from the Cherry Grove Pier
The Prince Resort is known for being located just steps from the Cherry Grove Pier, which is a popular reason many of our guests stay with us. Continue reading to learn about the latest updates and news from the Cherry Grove Pier.
 
Cherry Grove Pier
We have been taking advantage of the slower months and doing a few repairs and pressure washing the pier. We have also modified the pier hours for winter. The pier will be open from 8AM - 6PM through February.
 
Water temperatures have been warmer so we are still seeing a lot of whiting and croaker being caught. Whiting normally only weigh in around a couple of pounds, but their mild-tasting, flaky white filets make for good eating. Croaker is lean and full-flavored, with an almost sweet taste. The flesh is firm, similar to that of black drum and the skin is edible.
