“Wonderful, clean and peaceful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2011

I have hotel-phobia and we don't travel much because of it but Island Vista was a place in which I would stay again! Very clean! Peaceful and calm! Pools and beach access were great! Very convenient location. Nice kitchen in our suite. Staff was friendly and check in and out was fast. Parking garage was a little tight but it was very nice. We will stay at Island Vista on our next trip!

We enjoy staying at the Island Vista because it is so quiet and clean. We like the high ceilings and the way the rooms are decorated. All the rooms are extra large and the furniture is beautiful. Everyone is very nice, and the meals at The Cypress Room are the best of all the restaurants at Myrtle Beach. Of all the places we've ever stayed at in Myrtle Beach, this is our favorite.

My son and I spent 4 nights there and had a great time even though the weather did not cooperate fully. The room was spacious enough so that we did not feel shut in.The food in the Cypress Room was delicious and the presentation of it was superb.

I love the location of the Island Vista resort! We spent 4 nights this past week, and found the resort to be uncrowded and very private and peaceful. The beach and pool areas are beautiful. The room was clean and spacious. Unfortunately, I woke up sore every morning from the hard mattress. I would have given an "excellent" rating if the bed had been more comfortable and if there had been more comfortable living room furniture.

It was our first time in Myrtle Beach and it was great. We checked into the Island Vista and recieved a 60 dollar coupon for The Cypress Room .The location was nice There weren't other Hotel's right next to it. The rooms were very nice and clean. Beautiful view of the beach from our balcony, on the 12th floor. The beach wasn't crowded. The staff were very friendly and helpful.The only problems were getting towels there seemed to be a shortage of them. This was our first vacation in two years and we will be going back. I would highly recommend this hotel. Thank you Island Vista!!

This is really a NICE HOTEL. It's right on the beach & is much different from many other places there. Rooms are very pretty & clean. The sheets are soft, pillows are fluffy & you just feel like a VIP. It's my favorite place to stay & if you have a need for a suite of rooms get the corner ones with the pretty views of the beach from every bedroom. I LOVE IT!!! Lazy river, 2 pools, 2 jacuzzi's. Rocking chairs overlooking the ocean. AHHHHH wish I was there now!!

Room Tip: Corner suites are light & airy & the higher the floor the better the view.

Location, dining, cleanliness, value: all excellent! Great location including a wonderful ocean view as well as being close to attractions like Broadway at the Beach and restaurants. Our dining experiences at the hotel's Cypress Room were delicious and affordable (thanks to a meal voucher for dinner, breakfast always affordable). I did not feel ripped off like I did after dining at a nearby Brazilian steakhouse and at Murrell's Inlet. The scallops with bacon risotto and corn casserole were delicious! The room was immaculate and attractive. All of the pools were fun. (It was nice to get a cool drink from the Tiki Hut only a few steps away). If you can drive, the parking garage is fine and free. My husband wanted a plunger for the toilet, but a maintenance person came right up and fixed the problem. I took advantage of the fall discount special and, therefore, saved some money. The only negative is that a mini-convenience store on site is needed for paper items, snacks, and essentials.
