We were surprised when we discovered our two-bedroom condo was actually two units, an A and B unit. The decor was built around yellow daffodils and blue carnations. Dutch Delft vases and lamp bases gave a homey atmosphere. The bamboo and rattan furniture was comfortable and carefree. Both units were nicely color-coordinated using multi-colors for the drapery and bedspread with a basic but expensive upholstery fabric on the furniture. Walls are painted yellow, and the emerald-green carpeting is in good condition.
Interesting detail in the cathedral ceiling added to the enjoyment of being there. The jacuzzi for two and huge glassed-in shower in the master bedroom gave the place a romantic touch. Outside on our balcony we could see the pond behind our unit. The grounds are nicely landscaped. In the clubhouse you will find the elaborate lobby, as well as the pool and a nice big exercise room. The pool has a basketball hoop and volleyball net to keep things interesting. It's an indoor/outdoor pool, but it would be too cold to swim outdoors in December. There’s shuffleboard, racquetball, and volleyball courts as well as tennis at that resort. I also noticed an interesting playground for small children in the southwest corner of the resort.
At the present time, there are 252 units available, with more under construction.

The units are decorated with bright colors and a cheery attitude. The kitchen is just to the left of the entryway, and the guest bedroom with adjoining full bath is to the right; this room has two double beds. The dining room is at the end of the entryway with the living room just past it. The furniture is comfortable and the couch is a sleeper sofa. There is a large screened patio off the living room; the master bedroom with a huge king size bed is to the right of the living room. There is a whirlpool tub and sink in the bedroom, and a separate area off the bedroom with a shower and commode. It is a very large unit that's tastefully decorated, two full baths and three TVs. Very comfortable! Also for your enjoyment, there is a very nice outdoor swimming pool, a hot-tub, and a heated indoor swimming pool that is just beautiful!

The second bedroom has two full beds so you can, depending on the size of the guests, fit four in this room. The drawer space in the room is adequate for twopeople,but may be pushing it for more. There is a television with cable and remote in the room and a separate entry into the second bathroom.
The second bathroom is a standard tub and sink arrangement. The water pressure in both bathrooms is impressive, which feels nice after a long day of vacationing and/or swimming. There is a glass table that seats six in the eating area just outsoide of the kitchen with place settings that match the decor of the room.
Past all of this is the family room. There is a sleeper sofa, which is neither comfortable to sit on, nor comfortable to sleep on. There is also a separate chair to sit in. A coffee table sits in front of it bearing some resort info and the remote control for the television. In the TV armoire, I was pleased to find a full CD stereo system. This is a very nice touch and gives off great sound. It is much better than trying to make do with a portable stereo or walkman.
From here, you can walk out onto the screened in balcony, which also has an entrance from the master bedroom. There is seating for four here on white plastic deck furniture. Our room overlooked one of the ponds and fountains that wind through the resort. Hearing the water running gives you the nice relaxing feeling of being away, even though civilization is a VERY short drive away.
The master bedroom is very nice. The king-size bed is super and the mattress is just a tiny bit softer than normal. This was such a plus for me! I slept through every night, which is unusual for me on vacation because of how hard some mattresses are in resorts. There is also a television in an armoire with some drawers for storage. Should you need more drawer space, there should be a bachelor's chest next to the television in the family room.
The jacuzzi tub is a really welcome presence in the bedroom. It is large enough for two and the warm bubbles are the perfect nightcap after a day of vacationing and relaxing. There is a separate room to the back with a standing shower. And, like I said before, the water pressure is welcome. Any sand you might bring home from the beach will just be blasted off of your body!
There are charcoal grills placed strategically around the resort. The pool is large and they were still building more while we were there. This resort still had PLENTY of room to grow a couple years ago. Everything, from the grounds to the pavement to the buildings, was in tip-top shape. The only physical flaws were from contruction or refurbishment, none of which detracted from the beauty and the serenity of this resort.
The staff was very friendly and quick to accommodate any request we had. We did the timeshare tour and were pleased that it wasn't too pushy.
When we return to Myrtle Beach again, I will stay at Broadway Plantation and there alone. It is hard to believe that any other place could stack up to this perfect resort!

The rooms were really well-planned. We stayed in what is called the deluxe one bedroom. This is one half of the two bedroom lock-off unit. It consisted of a living, dining, and kitchen area. The master bedroom had a jacuzzi in it. Off from that was the bathroom which had separate doors for the bedroom and the family area. The screened porch had a view of a really lovely pond filled with a variety of animals. My boys would spend mornings counting the turtles on the bank sunning themselves.
The poolside facilities were very nice. There was an outdoor and and indoor portion to the pool. You could walk from one to the other. There was also a kiddie pool that the boys used on a regular basis. I would take a book and watch from a lounge chair while the boys spent time in the water. They had more fun in the pool then they had at the beach.

I should note this unit is billed as occupancy four. Unless you want to be cheek & jowl do not try to use this unit for four people. The living room dining room combination is quite small and adequate for two people but not four. To support this statement the living room has a sofa and only one other chair, which is a smaller sized wicker type with cushion. I tried it on one occasion and the best that I can say is - don’t planning on using it for an extended period of time. As there were only two of us in the unit, seating in the living room seating was not an issue.
The kitchen in this unit is described as "full kitchen". The kitchen is very similar to a studio style from the point of size: sink on the left, counter about the width of two cupboards, counter top burner unit and fridge on the right side. The microwave, attached to the overhead cupboard, was a combination regular/convection with a broiling capability that is intended to make up for the lack of an oven. Only one person could work at the counter. There was also an apartment sized dishwasher under the counter that is fine if there are only two people but if trying to use it after a dinner for four you would not be able to cleanup with one load.
Having said all of the above, we did exchange our Gold Crown studio for this unit so we were not unhappy with our accommodations. However, if we had used our one bedroom Gold Crown unit for this exchange, I would have been very unhappy. The whole point of this is to make people aware that availability shown online can be misleading because not all "Occupancy 4, Privacy 4 – Full Kitchen" are created equal.
The bedroom has a queen sized bed with a chair and TV with VCR player. Here, too, some additional planning and/or design could make this room more comfortable. There is only one night table and lamp. If a slightly narrower table were used and moved closer to the wall it would be possible to include a second night table. Lack of a second table had my husband leaving his glasses in the bathroom and unable to read in bed.

And talk about peace and quiet -- we never even saw another person on our floor, although the parking lot behind our building was quite full. The grounds are well-maintained and when we were there, the workers were putting fresh mulch around the many shrubs and trees. Blue, yellow, and white pansies were planted all around the resort. Check-in and check-out were smooth and easy.
The main building has several rooms that are used for guest activities, such as a computer access room. We didn't participate in resort-planned activities because there is so much to do in the Myrtle Beach area. There is a huge pool at this resort and, though we wanted to try it out, the air was just too cool for our middle-aged skin. The pool extends inside to provide for lousy weather. Security is a priority because to enter this resort, you need to show that you belong inside. A mile east of this resort is the beautiful Atlantic Ocean and minutes away are many fabulous restaurants and shopping areas; right across the street is Broadway at the Beach with its many attractions. WHAT A GREAT LOCATION! There is no better place to stay than the Sheraton's Broadway Plantation.

One of our favorite things to do while hanging out at the resort was feeding the ducks and turtles in the ponds. Each pond has at least one water fountain in the center and is surrounded by weeping willows. Ducks hang out under the willows, or paddle around in the murky water. If you watch closely as you feed the ducks in the water, you’ll begin to see tiny turtle heads pop up, trying to get their share of the snack! The screened-in porch attached to each unit is a great place to hang out for breakfast and watch the children feed the wildlife.
The resort offers discounts at local golf courses, and we chose a day at Indigo Creek. For $35 per person, we had 18 holes of golf, a cart and lunch of a hot dog, chips and a drink. My husband even received complimentary rental clubs. We rented my clubs at Martin’s Golf and Tennis, just around the corner from the resort, for $12 for the day. Golfing in the South Carolina July humidity is not for the weak. We enjoyed it, but it was a sweaty, exhausting day.
