Fodor's Expert Review The Caravelle Resort

6900 N. Ocean Blvd., Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, 29572, USA

Built in 1960 and fully renovated in 2018, this stalwart family resort is as youthful and tropically trendy as ever, with a bright yellow exterior, superchic condos, and the Wild Water pool area running the length of one side of the hotel, which receives rave giggles and shrieks of delight from kids; the complex has more then 10 pools. Inside the high-rise buildings, the classy room decor is reminiscent of the golden rays of the Carolina sun, in shades of yellow, amber, and gold. Many rooms have sliding glass doors onto an ocean-facing balcony.

PROS
