The BWP - Carolinian OF is a great place to stay and will definitely consider it if we go to Myrtle again. I chose the property based on comments I saw on Trip Advisor and wasn't disappointed, so I figured I would add comments of my own. The good: We stayed in the tall building in a 1 BD OF suite - 2 adults, 3 minors ages 9-13...we had plenty of room. The room was always cleaned and ready for us when we returned for lunch. I asked for extra towels daily because we showered multiple times and they always delivered with a smile. The staff all over the resort were helpful and pleasant, never had a problem. Washer/dryer in the room was GREAT with all the wet stuff from the beach daily. The balcony was good size with good chairs for sitting and enjoying the view. This hotel offers free mini-golf at a nearby course (see pics) anytime before 7 pm daily. You can also go to the Wild Water and Wheels water park every day as well, for free, with your stay. VERY nice bonus, which we took advantage of. It's a great park with a ton of water slides!! Things I would like the hotel Mgt to think about: the closet door in the living area was off the track and would not go back on. We pushed to an 'open' position so we could still use the space for coolers and such, but it would have been nice to have a working door. Housekeeping must have been aware of it, but nothing was ever done to fix it. It wasn't that big a deal to us, so we let it go. (Room 1831) The suite sleeps 6 due to the pull out couch, which we used for 2, 13 year old girls. Thank goodness they are young and didn't mind, because that mattress is SHOT!! All springs - no support - no way would an adult be comfortable sleeping there. The OF windows and sliding door only have sheer window coverings. Again the 2, 13 year olds slept mostly without issue, but when the sun comes up at 5:30 am and it's shining bright right on your face, I can't see how anyone could sleep. Hotel really needs to consider adding blackout drapes that can be closed at night!!! The kitchen was really nice to have - and was stocked well with pots/pans etc. However, the room says it sleeps 6, so I would have expected it to have at least 6 of each for glasses, plates, bowls, and silverware. IT DID NOT - it only had service for 4, so we ended up buying paper and plastic to make due. Not a huge deal, but something that would be nice for the hotel to update in the future. The beach was wonderful, great access from the pool area at the hotel. They did offer pool towels, which was a nice surprise and very convenient. The outside pool was nice, but not very large. The "indoor" pool was actually just in a covered section and VERY small, not completely indoor, as was the lazy river and hot tub. I would have preferred to have the lazy river and HT both outside so I could enjoy them in the sun, but that's just my opinion. Overall a wonderful week with just minor inconveniences - am hoping Management sees my review and takes some things into consideration.
