We go to Myrtle Beach at least once a year and this is one of the resorts we like to stay at. It has a great location and is ocean front. It was in walking distance to the Myrtle Beach Pavilion, but that area has now been torn down. There are a lot of souvenir shops within walking distance. One thing about this resort that some may not like is that it is in the middle of everything and right on the boulevard that gets so much traffic and cruisers. If you are looking for a quiet vacation, this is not the place for you. We like staying here when we are going for short stays that we want to get a lot of activities packed into. When we stay for 4 or more days, we choose to stay in a more quiet area of Myrtle Beach.
The hotel is between Surfside and North Myrtle Beach. It is a very close to Broadway at the Beach where there is great shopping, restaurants, nightlife, and Ripley's Aquarium. There are also several miniature golf courses very close to the hotel.
The hotel itself has nice rooms. There is a parking garage across the street. Most of the other hotels in the area do not have parking garages. Spaces are tight, though. The kids really love the pool, especially because there is a pirate ship. There is a lazy river, an indoor and outdoor pool, jacuzzis, and a sauna. There is a kids club, but it only runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The beach in front of the hotel is very nice. You can walk to the pier where they sometimes have live music.
There are 3 hotels to choose from and we like to stay at Paradise Towers - it is the main building. Starbucks is right across the street. One of the 2 is up the road a couple of blocks, but you are still able to use the pools at Paradise Towers. The rooms at Paradise Towers are nicer than that one that is down the road.
Room rates vary, according to the time of year. Of course, summer is most expensive, but in the winter you can get a real bargain. We've gotten a Jacuzzi Suite for as little as $50 a night in January.
