“Arctic Plunge anyone?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

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.

We would like to thank you for choosing the Breakers as your destination while visiting Myrtle Beach. We are pleased to hear we met your overall expectations with our hotel, and that we addressed the hot tub temperature issue in a timely manner. Always at the Breakers, our water amenities are a constant focus to ensure the highest level of guest satisfaction. This includes friendliness, cleanliness and maintenance. We pride ourselves with having the largest ocean front lawn on the Grand Strand.
We are disappointed to know that we fell short due to the temperature in our indoor pool facility. To assure that improvement comes from any negative experience here at the Breakers, and to ensure this is not a recurring situation, we have implemented a new procedure in which we display the indoor pool temperature as we do our hot tub temperature. This change, along with increased monitoring of the room and pool temperature during the winter and shoulder seasons, will ensure we do not disappoint our valued guests in the future.

My family and I stayed for a quick get away and the Breakers hotel is the best value for ocean front. The pool area is awesome and Starbucks is across the street.
The room was clean and comfortable. Service at the hotel was exemplary as we always find it.

We had a great time staying in the Palms Tower, I inadvertently book a room at another breakers location when we wanted to stay here the staff was super nice and helpful the moved my reservation so we could stay at this location, they were very professional and handled this change with great ease, I felt bad for my mistake but they repeatedly assured me it was not a problem. we just stayed last weekend and I am ready to go back.

We stayed at the Paradise Tower for the New Year's Eve in One of the Deluxe 2 room units. Pros:
- Had a small full kitchen, which was ok except missing some cooking pans.
- We were surprised by the fireworks at the beach around midnight. Nobody mentioned it beforehand.
- Beds were pretty comfy and clean, even the pull out bed in the living room area.
- Location. It was close to everything and was right at the beach with great views.
- Seemed to have good size, entertaining pools for the kids. They seemed clean as well.
Cons:
- Furniture was definitely dated and a little dirty.
- Only 2 guys at the registration on one of the busiest days of the year? Wow. There were 7 people in front of me waiting in line at the checkout.
- Breakfast buffet the hotel offers in the restaurant accross the street was mediocre, but the staff was very nice.

Overall, a good stay for a short term like a weekedn getaway, but wouldn't be my choice for a week long beach vacation.

Room Tip: The Paradise Tower seemed a little dated, I don't know the other buildings at the resort though...

Excellent hotel, nice size room, excellent location, friendly and helpful staff. We left two small bags near the elevator and before we traveled too far, the staff called to tell us we left them behind and had the bags held securely in the office. That is excellent customer service and it was greatly appreciated. My family was very comfortable staying here and would return in the future.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and have less noise

We stayed here for new years and my Birthday, we had a room on the 20th floor with a great view, both ocean front and city view to the south. We were in the Paridise Tower, it is the newer of all there buildings, is getting to were it need some upgrades, we had a few maintance problems, the maintance man told me there getting ready to gut it remodel soon. In general we had a great weekend and enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tubs.

Room Tip: the south and north end unit are the nicest

My wife and I stayed in a very nice Oceanfront room. Excellent location for all of the Myrtle Beach tourist attractions (very close to Broadway at the beach, Dixie Stampede, Ripleys, the sky ferris wheel, popular restaurants, etc). Very friendly staff. We had a great time, and we will be back :)

Room Tip: Oceantfront is the very best - and usually not much more money.
