“A great place to hang out in Myrtle Beach!”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

My wife and I just returned from a long weekend in Myrtle Beach. One of the highlights was certainly our stay at the Island Vista. Based on its ranking here and the positive reviews, we had high expectations - all of which were met. We booked a one bedroom ocean-view suite, that was fantastic. We didn't use the kitchen or dining area much, but the TV area and balcony were great places to relax. Their restaurant Cypress Room was great for breakfasts. It was too cool to swim in the pools, but we enjoyed a few hours of sun on the "south lawn". Overall, a very positive experience - we will certainly return!

Room Tip: Spend a few $$ more for an ocean-view.

Resort was top notch. Staff was very friendly, indoor pools were great. We loved the location, close to everything, but nice and quite. Room was spacious and clean with all amenities. We already booked another room for November. Our 6 & 7 year old girls loved our stay.

From first contact to wee-hours check-out, these folks know the true meaning of hospitality. Reminds me of boutique hotels in service, but without the attitude. Everything was better than we expected, and our only regret is that we didn't get to stay longer. Beautiful coast view from master bedroom and living room. Every amenity including free movie rental in the lobby. Lots of elbow room, basic kitchen set-up, clean, and great beds. Very quiet. And the insomniac with us slept like a baby--now how do you put a price on that?!

Room Tip: We were assigned to the PH floor (penthouse). I don't know how it differed from the other rooms...

Just stayed at Island Vista. Had a wonderful stay, accommodations, service, amenities, and food outstanding. Could not have asked for more, except for some better weather. Only other comment, exercise room could be a little bigger and therefore have room for more equipment.

I was very impressed with the room. We had a one bedroom ocean front suite. Great size, full kitchen, clean, comfortable beds. The resort was very nice. Our room was nice & quiet. My only suggestions wood be to freshen up hall paint, brighten up lobby & complete outdoor hot tub repair. I would definitely consider staying here again.

I cannot think of a nicer, well maintained resort in Myrtle Beach than Island Vista. We have never been disappointed with our vacation experience . My wife and myself think it is the finest resort in Myrtle Beach.

Room Tip: There is not a bad condominium in the resort.

My boys and I spent the weekend at this hotel for a mini-vacation. I loved how it was located away from all the "hype". Very clean. Nice speedy service, fast check in/out. My only complaint was the woman staying next to us spent hours talking on her cell phone outside the room and was completely loud & annoying!!! At 11:00pm!!! But I see my family staying here again next time we are in the area. Two thumbs up!
