Ocean Reef Resort Informative - Complaint - Hotel/Resort

Review by Tina Nugent on 2008-05-17
MYRTLE BEACH, SOUTH CAROLINA -- I witnessed a young man be brutally beaten at the Ocean Reef Resort in Myrtle Beach, SC. He was swimming in the pool, and when he left, 5 men brutally beat him. I watched helplessly from my balcony. I reported it to the manager, and he did not seem to care at all. Security was not heightened, and nothing was done to prevent future attacks. I saw this young man through out the week, and he had many injuries and it upset me to know someone was so injured, but nothing was done to help him.

I want people to know that the Ocean Reef Resort is not safe, and did nothing to further ensure the safety of its' guests. It was sickening and ruined my vacation.

Why didn't you call the police?

Why didn't you call 911? If I witnessed a crime I would call 911 not the hotel manager or security. I certainly wouldn't watch and do nothing and then complain it ruined my vacation.

The police were called and did come. But by the time they got there the attackers were gone and the victim was off to the hospital. You try watching a man be beaten and you can't get to him in time to help. Then have to see him all week at the hotel knowing what happened. I spoke with other witness and management did not even so much as send up extra ice to this boys room. His face was completely disfigured. I gave all my info to the cops and management and they did not even try to locate the attackers. Nor did the hotel heighten security. 2 nights later young men were back at the hotel pool setting off fireworks and screaming at guests. I think management should be doing something about who is on their property.

I would have thrown drinking glasses, ice buckets or anything else I could get my hands on to try and divert the attention away from the victim and hopefully bash one of these clowns over the head with it.
