Renovations Bring Style, Comfort, and New Color to Accommodations

Renovated rooms at Prince ResortWe strive to provide the most inviting accommodations on the beach. That's why when you check in at Prince Resort you will notice quite a few upgrades and renovations in many of our condominiums.

All of our rooms are getting a fresh new coat of paint. You'll love the relaxing yet stylish gray shades and new accent colors. Many of our units have been up-fitted with new drapes and modern, beige bedspreads.

We know you love dining at 3500 Ocean Grill and grabbing a bite at the Boardwalk Beach Cafe, but if you spend any time in your fully-equipped kitchen you will enjoy the new granite counter tops we've installed in several condominiums.

Clean, stylish, and comfortable accommodations await you at Prince Resort. Shouldn't your next beach vacation be beautiful inside and out?

Snowbird Activities Abound at Prince

TripAdvisor Certificate of ExcellenceEvery year, Prince Resort welcomes snowbirds from across the east coast to spend the fall and winter months with us. Our snowbirds love the mild Carolina winters and numerous social events that bring many friends, both new and old, together.

Bingo, coffee socials, cook-offs, dessert sampling, and recipe sharing are some of the events our snowbirds enjoy year after year. When it comes to games, we put on a friendly competition of Family Feud between our Prince Resort and Avista Resort monthly guests. Group outings to nearby attractions are also popular among our monthly guests.

Each month our snowbirds join together with our staff to participate in a community service project. In December, we gathered goodies and toiletries to make care packages for soldiers overseas. Our snowbirds enjoyed writing letters to show their support for our troops. We were honored to receive a response from the troops with a letter and pictures of soldiers enjoying their care packages.

Join in on the fun, meet new friends, and make the Prince Resort your fall or winter home.

News from the Cherry Grove Pier

Cherry Grove PierCherry Grove Pier improvements are underway this winter. New handrails, along with new benches, have been installed along the 985-foot pier. New paint and improvements are evident at the tackle shop. Some floor displays at the tackle shop have been rearranged for our shopper's convenience, as well.

If you are looking for fewer crowds and want to enjoy quiet fishing, winter is a good time to check out the pier. Shrimp, crab, squid, and synthetics usually work well as bait in the colder months. Water temperatures average in the mid-50's during the winter with juvenile whiting, croakers, silver perch, and red and black drum fish among the varieties that are biting this time of year.

Spring, summer, and fall offer more fishing opportunities and attract larger crowds. As the water temperatures rise, the likelihood of larger catches increases and the variety grows.

Farewell and Good Wishes to Al & Nancy Leska

In November, we bid farewell to our friends and employees Al and Nancy Leska with a celebration at Just Off Main at our sister property Avista Resort.

Nancy served as Assistant Director of Sales for the Prince Resort and Avista Resort prior to her retirement. Her husband, Al Leska, worked at Prince as a Bellman and kept watch of the oceanfront parking by the Cherry Grove Pier in the summer months.

The couple had more than 10 years of experience with the Myrtle Beach Seaside Resorts family.

We wish them the best as they return to their hometown in Pittsburg, Pennsylvannia. They will be greatly missed.

Meet Star Agent Michelle Terry

It takes more than a beautiful beach and inviting property to make Prince Resort a top vacation destination along the Grand Strand. Our guests are always a priority and top employees like Michelle Terry offer quality customer service and genuine hospitality before they even become guests.

The Star Agent for 2017 is no stranger to the top-performing role in our reservations department. Michelle got her start with the company five years ago and has twice earned the prestigious title.

"I'm very excited," Michelle says, adding that everyone in the reservations department deserves recognition. "All of them work hard. I love them and they are good to work with."

Michelle thrives in the upbeat and friendly environment. She enjoys working with people and puts her outgoing personality, good listening skills, and positive attitude to work every day.

"It's rewarding to help guests take the first step toward planning vacations of a lifetime," she says, "I'm always ready to help them get what they want."

Guest Comments
"The room was very spacious and clean. The bathroom had plenty of room - loved that it had two ways for entry. The workout rooms were great. Being across the street was great because that's where the parking deck was and our room had a ocean front view because there were no buildings blocking the view. Was definitely a condo rather than a room."

"I loved my room. It was spacious, very clean and comfortable. The maid, Kimberly, did an excellent job. She was also helpful and very friendly. The view from my room was really great too. Prince Resort at the Cherry Grove Pier is a great place to stay."

Fun in the Sun
There is never a lack of fun things to see and do in the Myrtle Beach area. Below are some tips to help you have the best Myrtle Beach vacation possible!
 
  • Get to the beach early in the day: If it's going to be a beautiful day, there's nothing wrong with heading to the shore earlier rather than later. It's not usually as crowded, and although the water may seem a bit cooler than it will be at 2:30PM, it will still feel refreshing and wonderful. The sun doesn't shine as intensely in the morning either. Afterward, you'll have plenty of time to move inside to the indoor pools for a break from the sun!
  • Check out at least one sunrise: One of the best parts about being on vacation is not waking up by an alarm clock. However, make sure to set an alarm at least once during your trip so you can get up early to see the sunrise over the ocean. It will surely be a sight you won't forgot. Early morning is also the perfect time to look for shells or take a peaceful stroll down the beach before the crowds arrive for the day.
