The travel site honored the Myrtle Beach area with three outstanding awards: “#1 Beach in the United States”, “Top 10 Best Beach in the World”, and “Top 25 Destinations in the United States.
They described the Grand Strand Area as being “distinguished by panoramic views of the Atlantic [Ocean], calm waters and soft white sand”. Tripadvisor® further went on to say that the Myrtle Beach area “offers plenty of family attractions, making it perfect for beach-lovers with kids. And at a fraction of the price for other beach towns such as Miami, Panama City, Daytona, and the Bahamas, Myrtle Beach seems to be looking better and better in this economy."
Tripadvisor® not only awards certain destination cities with various honors, but also to notable hotels and motels. Oceana Resorts announced three honors they had been awarded by Tripadvisor®.
The Ocean Park Resort was also named as one of the “Top 10 Properties for Jet-Set Pets” in the United States by Tripadvisor®. Being one of only three properties in Myrtle Beach to offer a pet-friendly environment, the Ocean Park has quickly become a favorite for pet-loving travelers.
The Ocean Park Resort also received Tripadvisor’s® Certificate of Excellence in 2012.
Additionally, after recently acquiring and offering a local water amusement park, Oceana Resorts' Wild Water and Wheels was named one of “America’s Top-10 Water Parks” by Tripadvisor®.
“It is all about guest service and added value,” says Frans Mustert, President and CEO of Oceana Resorts. “Being able to offer a pet friendly resort which takes care of the extra needs of those guests who like to travel with their pets and being recognized by Tripadvisor® as the third in the nation is a great honor.” Moreover, Mr. Mustert commented on the success of Wild Water and Wheels since Oceana Resorts had acquired it. “The free access to the 24-acre park is an added value to all of our guests. It is a great experience for the whole family and besides that, it is free. It doesn’t get any better.”
