This is our second time staying at the Island Vista Resort and is was worth the money! The hotel is clean, in a great location, updated rooms, and definitely a cut above the rest of the "resorts" in MB. The staff are very attentive and the hotel is upscale compared to the others on Ocean Bvd. This hotel is worth... More

The hotel staff was very friendly. Asked what floor I wanted and I said two and she warned me of the view and said if I wasn't satisfied to let her know. I prefer lower floors so I took it. It is oceanfront but the palm trees do block viewing but like I said that was my doing just get... More

Room was a spacious suite, which absolutely looked better online than in person. The room was unclean, especially the bathrooms, which upon arrival had sand and hair in the tub and the floors. All surfaces such as night stands, kitchen counters, etc. were dusty and gritty with sand or had tanning oil on kitchen chairs, remotes, etc. In vacation mode... More

Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor! I must say, the conditions you described are certainly not in line with the high standards that we have had in place for years. In a very busy summer season, an occasional item can be overlooked, but even then it’s rare. Our software allows for identifying the different phases of housekeeping and... More

Staying here right now. Most people have no idea where to stay. There are so many hotels to choose from. This is the best!!! Besides, the condo with an ocean view balcony, living room with upgraded carpet, full kitchen with granite and all the utensils, huge bedroom with 2 queen beds, very large bathroom with granite, and believe it or...

This was our 4th time to Myrtle Beach, 1st time staying at the Island Vista. The hotels we've stayed at previously were just up the beach. This is our preferred area to stay (between 60th-72nd street North). As other reviewers have mentioned, the Island Vista is surrounded by private homes, so the beach is not crowded. We were here in... More

This was our first stay here and we would definitely return. Staff were friendly, food was awesome at the Cypress Room, great views, nice pools, and just steps to the ocean. The location is perfect if you don't want to be near all the highrises. It's a short ride to the downtown/boardwalk area. We had a couple minor issues with... More

What a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The pools hot tubs and lazy river were lots of fun. We will definitely be back. Laying in our kingsized bed looking out at the ocean was amazing. Love Love Love

From the moment we walked into the hotel, we were treated like royalty. The staff and accommodations were superb! The only minor flaw was the tight parking in the parking garage. Other than that, we loved it! The food in the Cypress Room was the best I've had in years! Worth every penny!
