I chose the Paradise because of the positive reviews and because I got a very good 'deal'. If I didn't get a good deal it would have been a little disappointing for the rate they had advertised. It's in a quieter location, south of the 'honky tonk' part of Myrtle. We had a double ocean front suite on the 6th floor. LOVED the beds - extremely comfortable. The bathroom and kitchen area looked new and were very clean. Kitchen utensils are limited. No measuring cup, pot holders, spatula,mixing spoon, pizza pan, coffee filters, etc. Not that big of a deal, we made do. We had a problem with the dishwasher but that was fixed relatively quickly. Maid service could have been better. We were NEVER given enough towels...a room with 5 women and 3 of them teenagers! A couple of times it took so long for room service to bring the towels we requested that I had to send my daughter to the pool area to bring some up from there. Inconvenient. I don't like how the front desk area is separate from the entrance to the hotel. Also inconvenient.
The pool area is much too small for the amount of rooms. Majority of the pool area has no sun by 3pm unless you want to move a chair to the edge of the grass. There is no staff monitoring the pool area at any time!! Children are allowed to bring pool toys and floaties into the ONLY outdoor pool? Unheard of. People were walking from the beach to the pool without rinsing off. It became very dirty by 1pm and no staff seeing to it guests followed any pool etiquette. I tried to relax in the only hot tub they have, but couldn't because children were swimming and playing in it. Parents were taking their toddlers in the hot tub to play in diapers? That was just so gross. They don't enforce ANY pool rules at all, and there is no staff to assist in seeing to it the pool area was under control. Very very disappointing. The restaurant is closed by 11am and doesn't reopen again until dinner. Very strange. Try Damon's for lunch - not even a 5 minute drive south - VERY delicious! Mammy's kitchen for their breakfast buffet...go in there starving. Trust me on this.
Bottom line...it's not a 5 star so expect some flaws. Depends on what you want out of an ocean front resort I guess. I went for the view and the price. The bonus for me was the cleanliness of our rooms and comfort of the beds...the downside was the lack of service and no supervision and rules at the pool area.
