Thank you Ms. H for taking the time to review Carolinian! We value you and your business and will be continually working to improve the facility over the next year. Currently we are working on a plan to solve the heat-soak, issue in the 33 units - those panoramic views and the huge wall of windows definitely work for, and against. I will certainly pass along the Kudos to Martha for always being such a positive sight at CBR as she works to keep her crew of monthly guests happy. Herb W. GM

Hi FarAway643641, Thank you for taking the time to review Carolinian Beach Resort. I am happy to see the positive notes regarding our service and the breakfast. The elevators are a continuing maintenance project as they are both indoor/outdoor. We are working to improve the experience in that regard. As for the pool enclosure, I completely agree that it is not up to standard. I am working with the vendor to have it repaired from the wind damage the week prior to your arrival. We hope to see you again! Herb W. GM

I have always used the Resort Website. Just make sure that you get a room/ suite in the Tower Building. The views are incredible. I’ve stayed here every year for the last 16. They are working on a few issues and last time I was there, Fall 2018, they were hiring a new company for housekeeping.
