I made reservations for our summer 2014 vacation in Island Vista way back in February of this year. This gave me the opportunity to get a very good price and to learn a lot about the resort because I frequently read reviews of the property posted in TripAdvisor by previous travelers. For instance, I was advised by the reviewers to... More

My boyfriend and I and our 6 children(ages 18-27) stayed in an Oceanfront 2 Bedroom Deluxe Suite 7/13/2014-7/19/2014. The rooms, views and grounds were just beautiful. We really felt like we were at the Carribean. Although there is plenty to do at Myrtle, we felt satisified just relaxing at the hotel beach and pools all day. The hotel itself is... More

I hate the beach in summer when you stay at a hotel. It's always so crowded that I can't relax. So I had reservations about a week at the beach in July. Fortunately, the Island Vista is in the perfect location for those who want don't want to be isolated, but also don't want to be elbow to elbow with... More

I swore I wouldn't return to the Myrtle Beach area for the family vacation> I am so glad my Children (now adults) talked me into keeping a family tradition alive! While we travel other beach destinations, MB was always their childhood favorite- not mine.They researched with my "must haves"- Cleanliness referenced in good reviews, Tiki Hut, restaurant on site, close...

This was our second stay at the Island Vista, and there definitely be a third. We have visited Myrtle Beach many, many times and stayed in several hotels. The Island Vista has become our favorite place to stay. The onsite restaurant, tiki hut and bar are convenient, affordable, and serve great products. The bar tender (wears bow tie)at the cypress...

We first visited this property in June of 2014. We had several complaints, such as heavy construction and loud location of room (on the end of hall with constantly slamming door), and completed the customer survey. We never hear a word from the resort. My in-laws had already booked a trip for the week of 7/6. This time, we stayed... More

This was our second year back at Island Vista and we LOVED it! The hotel is not surrounded by other hotels which makes the beach so much quieter and spacious-unlike other hotels there that sit right on top of one another. We stayed in the ocean view hotel room which was perfect for the two of us. Last year we... More

My husband and I are frequent visitors to Myrtle Beach (normally for long weekend trips). We normally stay at Hampton Oceanfront located at the southern end of MB.  If we stay at the northern end we typically choose Dunes Village.  Hampton Inn is becoming a little pricey so were looking for another option and we found it! During our stay... More

Currently spending my 60th here with 2 of my daughters and a friend. The suite (#603) is a one bedroom with a Murphy bed and sofa bed. The furnishings are newer and 5 he view of the ocean is breathtaking. The lobby isn't much to look at but that doesn't matter once you enter the room. Also spent a night... More
