We booked a week long stay at the Breakers' Paradise tower, and have been satisfied with everything except the indoor pools! The first day that we got there the large hot tub was the same temperature of the pool.... COLD!! The sign read that it had been tested that day and was 102, no way possible. We complained and they fixed it by the next day.
The entire week though, the large indoor pool has been freezing.cold, way too cold for an indoor heated pool. We stayed in January so the hotel wasn't very busy, but even on the weekend when it did get busy, everyone was crowded in the kiddie pool, lazy river (which was a few degrees warmer than the pool but still chilly) or the hot tub, not a single person in the gigantic pool! We forced ourselves into it several times because honestly, the indoor pools is the main reason we are at the beach in January! After 30 minutes of playing we were all still chilly, but noticed that my 1 year old's lips were a deep purple! We had her get into the hot tub to warm back up and after 5 minutes they were pink again, we're just SO disappointed.
I called the front desk to let them know that something terrible had happened and that it needed to be fixed promptly because obviously the heater was turned off (like the hot tub had been earlier in the week) and they called back to the room and said that they had checked and it was set to their standards.
I guess in the summer it isn't so bad, but in the winter a freezing indoor pool is not fun at all. We'll definitely not stay here again for this reason.
