Island Vista is set right on a beautiful sandy beach, we had booked a Queen Suite that had 2 queen beds and a murphy bed and sofa bed but when the bellhop (the nicest man ever) went into the room , it hadn't been cleaned. Back at the front desk he did the complaining for us and the manager upgraded... More

We spent an entire week in a 1 bedroom suite at Island Vista. We were able to check in a bit early, which helped after a 9 hour drive. Check-in was so easy and fast. Fastest I've been through. We received a $40 card to use at the restaurant which we used for pizza. The restaurant looked lovely but a... More

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...

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... More

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.

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!!!... More
