“Great Beach Hotel”
Reviewed 24 December 2013

Stayed here for two nights just prior to the Christmas holidays in Room 1000 (ocean view). Nice room, and I believe it is the smallest the property offers. Quick check in, two parking decks convenient to towers and elevators, clean rooms, very comfy beds, very friendly staff (from housekeeping to maintenance to front desk to dining room servers), beautiful pool areas (and very nice indoor pool area for those staying in the winter), beautiful tanning lawn, oceanfront with nice access, great breakfast in the dining room.

Was very impressed with the friendliness of the staff. One of the maintenance workers was insistent it was no problem to turn on the water features of the indoor pool when we were just walking through to check things out. The wait staff is the dining room was very efficient and friendly. There were few patrons present for breakfast, and the staff seated us all well away from each other making for a more intimate dining experience. The view of the ocean, tanning lawn, etc. from the dining room is very nice.

We will very likely stay here again.

Check out the photos.

We stayed for 8 nights in early December. The positives:
*room service (pizza, sweet potato, banana pancakes,)
*whirlpool tub
*shower (great pressure)
*pool/jacuzzi
*size of rooms
*all the amenities needed for cooking
*good location for MB
*the view
*great beach area
*SERVICE was GREAT
The only negative was the first night when we arrived we couldn't find a parking spot. Thankfully, we found one a little later around midnight. We can't wait to get back especially when I'm not sick.

My daughter and I loved our stay at the Island Vista in a one bedroom oceanfront suite. The rooms were clean, comfortable and very quiet! The view from the balcony was great. The staff was friendly and attentive to all our needs. Great place to stay if you want to be away from all the hustle and buslte of Myrtle Beach but still be within short drive of all the action. The food in the Cypress room was also very good. We will definitely make this our place to stay whenever we are in the area.

The Island Vista and it's entire staff provided me with great accommodations and service. I was there with 5 other golfers and we all had a fantastic time. Joey Barker the golf director set up all my tee times and courses and everything went as smooth as silk. I couldn't recommend a better place to go to for a golf vacation or even just a beach vacation.

Room Tip: The corner 4 bedroom suite is great for up to 7 golfers.

This is one of the best hotels I've been too! The rooms were immaculate, service personal outstanding, and everything else was A+++. I took the family here for a Thanksgiving Day trip and wow, my family and I love it.

The View from our suite was awesome!

Thank you so much Island Vista, We will be back!!!

Room Tip: Ocean View Suite!

We had 6 adults w/3 bedrooms and 3 baths. Stayed ocean front in suite 1212. It was perfect. The full kitchen had everything we needed to make some delish means. Location was wonderful. Staff was excellent. Extremely clean facility. Pools and lounging outside areas wonderful. Plenty of chaises.
Can't wait to go again.

Room Tip: Request ocean front as high up as you can.

This is one of the Best Resort in Myrtle Beach area. We rented Ocean View King Suite for 2 nights. Full Kitchen with plates, spoon, knife, Big Fridge, Microwave, Oven, Dishwasher wow! All in one! Very Good. Front Desk staff was good as well. We were given 6th floor. Room 610. Good Ocean View. I enjoyed 2 days there. This will be my all time spot for 1-2-3 days relax and back to work life. I didnt get a chance to use Cypress Room but next time will def visit there as well. We ordered room service "Pizza", I can say its Sure HOME MADE.. what a taste!!! yum yum.... If they do breakfast like pizza "Room Service" they will be very good.
