One Couple’s Perfect Anniversary Getaway to Paradise
Crystal Williamson and her husband, Bryan, have five kids, so when they get away for a “just the two of us” trip, they’re looking to really relax. Recently, the High Point, N.C., couple took a few days to themselves to celebrate their 11th anniversary, and stayed at the Myrtle Beach hotel Paradise Resort. What did they find? A true paradise.
“Literally everything, from the staff being so polite to everything we needed being so prompt, and the room being clean and orderly, to the facilities, the gym, the pool—everything was in perfect working order. I mean, the breakfast—oh my gosh the breakfast—that was great. I mean, really, there just wasn’t anything to complain about,” Crystal said.
“When we travel, we’re typically on a budget, and when you’re looking for a hotel that is actually budget friendly but still really nice, it can be hard,” she said. That’s why they were so impressed with both the winter rates and the fantastic amenities they found at Paradise Resort.
“We actually stayed at the resort quite a bit. We went to the gym every morning, we used the indoor pools, we used the free DVD rentals there, and then we got free tickets, too, so we rode the SkyWheel, did some shopping,” she said, referring to Paradise Resort’s Sun & Fun Bonus, which includes free tickets to many area attractions as well as free, in-room DVD rentals. “You do get so much for free.”
She also said the winter trip was just what the couple needed. “We love that time of year. We just love it because you don’t have to deal with the crowds of summer, but yet there is still enough open it’s not as if you’ve gone there and the whole town is shut down.”
In fact, the couple had originally reserved an ocean view room, and when they arrived and saw how fantastic the weather was, they asked at the front desk to upgrade to an oceanfront room. “He was very accommodating, very nice. And the room was just fantastic.” Overall, Crystal said she’d highly recommend Paradise Resort. “This was by far the beset hotel we have stayed in in years.”
