“The place needs better management”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We've been comming here for about 7 years. It has great location. Great potential. We have seen the decline though especially in the last 2 years. We problably will shop for a new place now. We used to be able to sit at the pool and watch the kids play while enjoying pool side service. You will be lucky to get anyone lately.Went into the Red Parot to watch a sport event. The bar staff was rude and not really friendly. Papas was at one time a great upper scale buffet. Now low quality food on the buffet. Cleaning crews do a great job but you usually feel you are in their way.The elevators are slow and staff has them running for the cleaning activities. Im just sayin......a change in management with someone with hospitality experience will turn the place into a gem.
Great service keeps people comming back. I understand the economy is bad...but the best will survive. Dont cut quality food and service to save money. Manage what you have more efficiently. A server can push drinks and food poolside, great looking food and drinks creates wants from others. Cleaning staff should be out of site and deployed during low activety times. You dont schedule towel deliveries during check in times!

We've stayed here twice within the year and both times were great. Staff are friendly and helpful, rooms are clean, pools and pool areas are clean. We were in walking distance of many shops and restaurants. And it is nice to stay at one resort but able to use all the pools. This is our home away from home and love staying here each time we visit Myrtle Beach.

My two friends and I stayed here for a girl's weekend. We were happy with the location and the resort itself. Nice pools, excellent beach access, free parking in garage across the street and a very good restaurant. The food and drinks were inexpensive and tasty.
Only negative is that the rooms were a bit dated and the bathrooms were dinged and scuffed up. We didn't spend much time in the room anyway!
This was our first time to Myrtle Beach and we will probably stay here again next year.

Room Tip: Choose Ocean Front. It has a wonderful view!

We went to the Breakers Resort Aug. 17-21, 2013. We booked our stay through Groupon and it was my first time making a purchase through Groupon so I was a little nervous about but we had the best time. There was so much to do in the area that we didn't really need to drive anywhere. Loved having the DJ at the pool, just wish he would play music for more than 4 hours. Wifi wasn't too good but who cares I was too busy splashing around in the pool and having a great time. My kids loved it as well. The people there were great, there were people from all over. I definitely want to go back but next time I think I will stay longer than 4 days.

We have a great stay at the Breakers Seaside room 584 for four nights from August 15 - 19, 2013. When we arrived the weather was 67 degrees and rainy on both Thursday and Friday. However, the weather Saturday and Sunday was beautiful so I went to the front desk and asked if we could extend our stay by one day without changing rooms and a customer service representative by the name of Lauren was extremely pleasant and helpful and provided with great customer service. We were hesitant to stay in the Seaside building as it is an older building, but the room was clean, our room was quiet 90% of the time except for some fools who checked in the final night which could happen at any hotel in MB, the maid service was superior and took the time to vacuum the room of sand each day, and we had an excellent unobstructed view of the beach and were able to take some wonderful sunrise photos. We had breakfast at Papa's each morning and the waitstaff, especially Stacy, were wonderful, friendly, accomodating and personable. There are several pools, a lazy river and hot tubs to chose from, and in the afternoon there was a deejay playing music at the main pool area including music from the 80's which was fun. We generally stay in the North area of Myrtle Beach but our stay at the Breakers Seaside exceeded our expectations and I will be back next year.

Room Tip: I would recommend paying extra for an oceanfront room.

We went to the The Breakers Resort in the summer of 2012. The hotel was so nice we are going back again this year.

We stayed in the Sailfish Oceanfront 2 Bedroom Suite which was perfect. Our room was 911. The best part of the room was having a washer and dryer. The only bad thing was that our Wifi never worked.

We are going back again in the summer of 2013 but this time we are staying at the
Paradise 2 Bedroom Oceanfront Suite which we received a great deal on.

My fiance and I stayed here at this hotel for 5 days. We were pleasantly surprised by the speedy check in. The receptionist upgraded us to an ocean view room (we booked a resort view) and gave us a card for unlimited free movies straight to our room!

The parking garage is right across the street from the hotel, and it has 8 levels. Parking was not an issue. Beware though, by 11pm parking is very scarce.

At the bottom of the parking garage is a starbucks, ben & jerry's, and a couple of other little restaurants (which deliver to the room!)

There is also a convenient store, tourist shops, surf shops and fast food restaurants within walking distance. Broadway at the Beach is a 5 minute drive and the airport is about 15 minutes away. We loved this convenience!

Our room was located on the 11th floor in the Palmetto building. The view was absolutely incredible and our room was CLEAN and spacious. It also included a fully stocked kitchenette (stove, oven, mini fridge and toaster)

Our resort was beautiful. It is a family oriented resort, with pools, hot tubs, a lazy river and the beach, just steps away.

We didnt use the pool as the whole point of our vacation was going on the beach. There are life guards that set up chairs and umbrellas and you can rent them for the day. We just bought an umbrella for $10 at the tourist shop.

Every day in the afternoon there was a DJ playing music which can be heard whether you're on the beach, in the pool, or on your balcony. He plays all kinds of music for all ages, ranging from today's top 40 to oldies for the parents.

A couple things that could be improved is the elevators take FOREVER. A good 3-4 minute wait. And when you finally enter the elevator, you jump around to different floors and no one is even there when the doors open. Another issue we had was the wifi. The resort offers free wifi, however the wifi wasnt working. The front desk gave us a tech support number however after being on the phone for an hour, even the tech support couldnt figure out the issue. We just used the wifi at starbucks across the street.

The hotel staff is so nice, very hospitable, and very helpful. Our housekeeper was a very nice polish girl. She always came to our room first thing in the morning to give is fresh towels. We loved her, she made our day!

All in all, we absolutely LOVED this resort! We will definitely be returning here and we have already been recommending this hotel to our friends and family!
