“Great Time in Myrtle Beach, SC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

I was very pleased with my stay at Island Vista Resort in Myrtle Beach, SC. I read an article about this resort in a newspaper and a co-worker of mine also recommended this place as well. I loved how the resort was located in a relaxing residential neighborhood. It was very easy to get to and was near a great deal of area attractions. The staff was wonderful. I was very impressed with the check in and check out procedures and the front desk attendants even remembered my name when they saw me. The maintenance staff was great as they came by to help us with the television and the safe. I loved the indoor pool and lazy river. The outdoor pools were very nice and the beach was uncrowded due to the fact that they were no other high rise hotels located right next to Island Vista. I loved walking out on the beach and not feeling like you were crammed up against other people. I also enjoyed being able to walk right out of the parking garage and into the hotel hallway where my room was located. The rooms were very nice. I loved the one-bedroom suite. The bathroom was spacious. My family also enjoyed the murphy bed that pulled down from the wall in the dining area. The furniture was very comfortable and the kitchen was up to date. The view from the balcony overlooking the ocean was wonderful. Overall, I would definitely stay here again and I would recommend this resort to anyone.

The Island Vista Resort was like finding paradise. We arrived at Myrtle Beach booked into another hotel. We visited Island Vista and immediately changed our booking. The staff was extremely courteous; the suite which we were fortunate to get was beautiful; clean and comfortable with a direct view of the ocean. The on-site restaurant (Cypress Restaurant) was great and the food was delicious. We are going to return to Myrtle Beach this fall and we are definitely staying at the Island Vista.
Thank you Island Vista

The Island Vista is a nice property between the Myrtle Beach boardwalk and North Myrtle Beach. The rooms are a little tight and dark but they offer everything you need. The property has several pools. The indoor pools have a wall of sliding glass windows that can be closed off when the weather gets bad. The resort offers activities to entertain kids and evening entertainment for all ages. We were able to spend an entire day just at the resort without having to venture out for food or entertainment. This property has all you need.

I always stay at Island Vista when I travel to Myrtle Beach. This hotel is located in the middle of a residential neighborhood on Ocean Boulevard. It is very quiet and offers the absolute best views of the ocean and of the Myrtle Beach skyline. The Cypress Room has excellent food, as well! I cannot wait to return!

We stayed at Island Vista for 8days and loved every minute of it! There are so many points to review, here are the basics:
Room- we stayed in a one bedroom, which was spacious and immaculately clean. Plenty of extra blankets and pillows provided. Bathroom was huge, but it would be nice if sink was separate from toilet/shower. View of ocean was perfect! Balcony was super private. One negative- lighting. The bedroom was so dark (good at night) that it made it difficult to unpack/pack. The lighting in the bedroom frustrated me all week. Kitchen good, counter space limited.
Elevators- extremely efficient and available.
Parking- garage was tight to pass and negotiate at times, but we always found a good spot for our pilot. There was always a spot out front for our larger sequoia.
Pool- wonderful for families! Deepest is five feet, two pools to choose from outdoors. One has a large 1.5' area for toddlers. Great sunbathing areas where you can see entire pool area. Tiki bar has great food poolside. 2 hot tubs. Indoor lazy river is also great for kids. This area could be cleaner, and chairs are few.
Ocean access- could not be better! Not too crowded at any point.

We recently stayed for four nights and would definitely recommend the property. We are always interested in two-bedroom accommodations when traveling with our two daughters, now aged 20 and 22. Island Vista was perfect for us with both spacious pool seating (complete with Tiki Bar) and adjacent beach access. They also had an indoor pool with lazy river, but we didn't try that out. The beach was the main reason for our visit and was wonderful. We rented umbrella and chairs and had no problems. There were enough people to keep the people watching interesting, but we never felt crowded. (We also visited the public beach near the boardwalk one afternoon to experience the bigger crowds.)

Good cleaning service, no unwanted attention, fast elevators, free parking. We had an ocean front room and LOVED sitting on our small balcony in the morning and evenings. We even had a fireworks show one night courtesy of a wedding at the hotel.

My family stay in a couple of the 4bedroom ocean view suites may29-june4. We take a family vacation every year. this is the best vacation so far. We had a wonderful experience from the time we arrived until check out. This resort make sure its nothing u need to ask for because they have already provided it. The restaurant was excellent. My whole family from the 2 year olds to the 60 year old had a great time. I will be returning.
