Such nice staff. We were at the resort for a two family getaway-5 kids! The kids loved the pirate ship pool area. I really enjoyed how quickly we moved from floor to floor on the elevators. That makes a big difference! Made our July 4, 2012 an excellent getaway.

Room Tip: Oceanfront always!

we have been staying at either the Paradise Tower or the Palmetto Bldg twice a year for about 9 years and have always found the staff and facilities great... it is central if you don't want to drive,, everything is within walking distance or you can use the MB shuttle to get around.. they were updating carpeting, etc. when we were there this April.. What more could you ask than an oceanfront room on miles and miles of beautiful beach...

Room Tip: if you want one bedroom go to Paradise Tower oceanfront if you want efficiency go to Palmetto ocean...

Stayed in the Paradise tower at the Breakers Resort in Myrtle Beach this past weekend. Grandson had a baseball tournament, and the Breakers was the affiliated resort for teams playing in the tournament. We have stayed at various properties in Myrtle Beach for 15 years, and we would rate this one average due to the normal aging of the property. It's a very busy resort, with 5 separate buildings on site. Although the weather was not the best, the oceanfront amenities of the property were great. Nicely landscaped, many lawn chairs, nice beach, etc. Kids really enjoyed the indoor pool and lazy river. The oceanfront room was pretty worn, carpeting furniture and bed linens. The bath had been recently renovated and was in fine shape. Staff was very helpful and professional. Bottom line was for the rate the property provided for the baseball team families, it was a great value for the price. However, at best it is a middle of the road facility for Myrtle Beach.

I have been running a trip for 16 golfers for years. We'll never leave the Breakers. Awesome resort, help, central to a lot of courses. The golf shop help is awesome, especially Gloria, she's the best at anything you need! Good food, rooms, pools, ocean view, right on the beach? The Best

Boston Strong!

I was on a weekend getaway with my siblings.

The cons:

We stayed at the Sailfish Tower, and unfortunately, we got placed next to the loudest and most inconsiderate group of people. We were there for only two nights, but could not sleep at all thanks to them. They'd storm into their room in the middle of the nights, making loud commotion as if it was the end of the world. And may I also add, they were men in their late 30s-early 40s. (Some people never grow up.) We called the front desk the first night it happened. But obviously, nothing was done as it was repeated (and even worse) the second night.

We were in need of toilet paper the second day. The room service ladies only gave us one. There were 6 of us. One roll of toilet paper will not last long. So when we needed more (the third day), we called the front desk. Toilet paper (just 1 roll again) finally came after an hour. Also, they came to clean our suite during the time we were still in so we asked them to come again later. They never did. I suggest they also invest in new and clean bedsheets and blankets. The bedsheets are stained/old, and the blankets were very light and uncomfortable.

The lady at the front desk did not seem to know much about the Breakers Resort. I asked her if we needed our card key to get into the other towers. She sounded hesitant but said yes anyway. I also asked her about the price of their breakfast buffet. Her response? "I think it's $8.25. Or it could be $8.95." She also didn't know how far it (Boutique Tower) was from the Sailfish Tower.

The pros:

The ocean front view is beautiful. We also enjoyed the many amenities that came with the room (pool, hot tub, sauna, etc). You can walk to the beach and boardwalk in minutes.

I would not mind coming back to Breakers Resort, but if I do, I will definitely be staying in a different tower. Possibly in a more quiet setting (if there is such thing).

LJ is the best bell hop ever! He greated us with a smile and helped us get our bags in the car! The amenities were good. My only suggestion is that there should be toiletries and or first aid items available at the front desk
