3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Some things about this resort are questionable. My family of 10 rented 2 three-bedroom condos and the rooms were completely different. One room was very modern, clean - no issues. The other room was something out of the 80's. The furniture was so old and outdated - we put sheets down when we sat on them. The tv's were the big box tvs and everything had a thick layer of dust on it. The couches were so worn and soiled as was the carpet and the biggest issue was one of the bathrooms. It was evident that no one had taken any time to clean the toilet. It looked like an explosion happened in there. Very disgusting. Having half of the family in a updated modern room and the other half in this time warped room, put a damper on the vacation as everybody wanted to stay in the clean modern room. We also made reservations 3 months in advance and requested our rooms be on the same floor and the reservation agent said that our rooms would be side by side. Of course when we got there, this was not the case. Our rooms were on different floors and so far apart. Very disappointing. The rest of the hotel was nice, and maintenance and housekeeping were more friendly than the front desk workers. Pool area was nice, easy access to the beach. But I definitely would not stay here again b/c its going to be a crap shoot on whether you get a room that the owner keeps up or not.

We had a great time staying at this resort over the last couple of days. Our entire family of 11 was amazed at the location and the direct beach view. We stayed in a three bedroom ocean front suite on the 5th floor.

Be prepared to bring the kitchen necessities, as salt, pepper, paper towels, dish soap, etc... are not provided.

Our only complaint would be that with the kind of money the owner of our suite has, he really should invest some of it back into the room itself. Beds were cheap and the dining room table was on its last leg. Also, if you are depending on a certain number of beds in each room, make sure you double check when you check in. One of our extra rooms had only one bed when we were told it would have two.

Cleanliness was great and the master bathroom is gorgeous.

We would definitely go back as you can't beat waking up to the ocean right in front of you each morning.

Enjoy!

I have been staying at Myrtle Beach for years, Mar Vista Grande is by far my favorite place so far. We stayed in the penthouse Room 1411 and it was great. Plenty of space for everyone to spread out with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, all with upgraded higher-end finishes. The balcony is very large; it had a lounge chair and a table with 6 chairs. The parking garage is not crowded at all and very convenient to the 4 elevators. There are different amenity coupons that come with the room, free game of golf daily, Grand Prix tickets, and a few other options. There is a DVD box in the lobby with free rentals. My 7-year-old loved the kids' activities, which included a magician, clown, and several crafts he could choose from.
We received an abundance of towels daily and our trash was taken. I do recommend you place your dirty towels and trash cans on the floor near the front door, as the housekeepers don't go room to room in the condo. If you are expecting hotel maid service this place is not for you. Not an issue for us as I really don't like strange people traipsing around with all my belongings when I'm not there.
Overall this was a great stay and we will definitely go back to Mar Vista Grande.

Great place for the family vacation. Nicely located to any MB attractions you may want to visit. Right by the bypass so you can get about anywhere without the dreaded Hwy 17 traffic. Outside and inside pool, 2 hot tubs and a small lazy river. Great beach access. Plenty of room. Fitness center is just ok, but for most it will be fine. I am used to a state of the art fitness center. But how many people workout on vacation anyway. Honestly I did it to not feel terribly guilty about eating everything in sight while here.

Amazing thing about this place is that for a high-rise condo it doesn't seem overly crowded. Plenty of parking and plenty of room around the pool. 4 elevators so you're not waiting endlessly for a ride up not down. 4 level parking garage with plenty of parking. Very convenient!!

The actual accommodations are outstanding. We stayed at a friend's condo. It is a 3-bedroom. Spacious and wonderful.

My third stay here and it was wonderful!!

This was my third visit to the property. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. the front desk staff were courteous and helpful. I appreciated the call after checking in to make sure everything was in working order. This end of Myrtle Beach was desirable. The location is near restaurants and convenient to shopping at Barefoot Landing and Tanger Outlet Mall. I like the three bedroom property with three full baths. This was convenient for all in my party. The cost was a little high, although most properties of this type are pricey.

First time renting from Mar Vista Grande, upon arriving the staff was very personable and my condo was upgraded from a three bedroom to a four bedroom. The condo was nicely furnished and clean. I will definitely be returning , our ocean view was awesome!
