Very good staff and a great place for the family. 3 bedroom oceanfront had more than enough room for 2 adults and three teenager's. Shopping and restaurants are within walking distance. Planing another trip for October!

The ideal location on the beach. I have to agree with the comments I have read below. Maid service was almost non existent. I did go to the front desk and raise the issue of no service and that resulted in clean towels and a garbage removal. On the third day I (myself) had to request housekeeping to make the... More

The location of this hotel is excellent. The beaches are not that crowded. The hula show on Monday night was very entertaining. The cleaning people were ok. They didn't come to our room one day. The pool bar was ok, but I wish it stayed open longer. The pools are small but they were not over crowded. It was a... More

My family and I went the first week of Aug and we had the most wonderful experience. We absolutely loved the hotel from the beautiful spacious balcony overlooking the pool and beach to the private beach and beautiful spacious room. The kids loved going from the beach to the pool which they stayed tell late. Restaurants and shopping areas are... More

My family of 3 stayed here from last Tuesday to this Tuesday. In arrival we were able to check in a little early which was great since we had an 8 hour drive. We had a suite. My 2 year old found pills on the floor in the living room. I have no idea what kind we trashed them. The... More

Thank you for your recent review. We are happy that we could accommodate your early arrival, but you do describe an unusual experience after check-in. We do not have a report of a child finding pills on file, but if such a thing were ever reported, we would take the serious steps required in that circumstance… that is definitely something... More

I have a lot of mixed feelings about this property. My family of four (which includes 2 boys 14 &10) arrived on a thursday at 4pm and stayed one week. Our room was immediately ready. Because I read so many reviews I knew what to expect in regards to location and set up of the lobby. Our room was on... More

Thank you for your review, and for posting the positives about your experience here. One of the characteristics of Trip Advisor that makes it a little difficult to provide specific address to a specific guest is the anonymous nature of the site. Two-bedroom suites and larger have much more space in the kitchen areas and much more storage, but guys... More

We enjoyed the visit. The linen could have been in better shape but overall we were pleased with the hotel. Really enjoyed the chairs and umbrellas being set up for us. The food at the hotel's restaurant was great!!!

1. Location - on the plus side, its located a good distance from the funky and busy downtown area and the hotel faces a very nice and spacious beach. There is a good jogging track along ocean blvd. On the downside, you have to drive to get to many activities (jet skies, parasailing, etc.) 2. Rooms - We stayed in... More

Thank you for your review. Sometimes, it’s a little difficult to begin a response… that is so in your case in that most points seemed to be positive in nature, and we thank you for that! The issue that seemed most obvious might be our fitness center… this amenity is meant to be just that, not a full gym. We... More

Island Vista is located in the heart of MB. But it gives you a private feel. There are homes and condos on both sides of the hotel. You will have a lot of room on the beach. The hotel is very nice with quite rooms and nice beds. You're a short drive to the north and south MB. The hotel... More
