“Great vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

If you want to get away from it all, this is the place. i think what inmpressd me the most was it was clean and like being at home. Rooms were big and the pictures are accurrate.

I wouold take my family there again.

Room Tip: We were in the middle of the complex had a nice view straight out into the ocean.

Check-in and out was quick and efficient,very roomy 2BR Condo with wonderful view of the ocean.The room was clean, roomy,well appointed,and comfortable.Large HD TV in living area,but a real stickler for me,ancient CRT TVs in the bedrooms.We ate both in the lounge(appetizers) , and Just Off Main (breakfast buffett),the food was lacking in quality and taste.At night(after golfing) we lounged in the 2 outdoor hot tubs,and even at 43* outside,they were hot and relaxing.Overall; a very nice resort for the price,and I will return to Avista again,(we will just eat out),I am looking forward to the friendly staff and excellent rooms.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a wonderful view.

Stayed in a 3 room condo, 6 adults. Right on the beach. Rooms were very clean. Large balcony. Great staff. Easy to check in and to check out. Is at North Myrtle Beach, in a more quiet area then Myrtle Beach. More place on the beach to place your towel. Absolutely recommended.

We enjoyed our two night stay. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable (a big deal for my husband who has back issues) and the staff was friendly, especially the wait staff at the Just off Main restaurant. The only issue was the free wifi never worked properly. I called the front desk twice and they reset it but it still did not work so I ended up activating the mobile hotspot feature on my moble phone. Overall though we would definitely stay there again.

Thank you so much for your positive comments on our staff, I will be happy to pass them on for you, they will appreciate it as they try very hard. I am sorry about the wifi I will look into that right away as we should not have reset it twice and it not work. Thank you for taking the time to let us know though so hopefully our other guests will not have the same problem though we should have had it fixed for you. Please give us another try as we promise to get it right the first time.

This was our 1st stay, but it won't be our last. Check-in was a snap, with friendly staff. The room was amazing. Didn't expect what we walked into. We had awesome views of both the ocean and the strip towards Cherry Grove. Couldn't focus on any football games sitting in the living room, the eyes kept wondering off to the ocean or the strip. Nice private balcony. Super comfortable beds. Walking to the OD clubs was great. Short ride to great shopping. Nice wide beach area. Great for resting. We would highly recommend Avista.

Room Tip: We were on the north end, 9th floor. Views were awesome.

I have stayed at the Avista 5 times now. Each and every time has been great. It's located in such a great area for shopping and eating out. The beach area is fantastic! I highly recommend this resort. The staff are very nice and helpful and want to make your stay a great one. The rooms are always nicely decorated and clean! Also you feel very safe and secure in this resort.

I read many reviews and some were very concerning, but others were positive so I took a chance. I have to say, as with most properties in MB area, that it depends on the season you visit. During summers, everything is busy, slow, late, not thoroughly serviced, etc. Even at the high-priced resorts, I've seen bad reviews during summer months. But staying in off season, I found this resort to be a very good value for the price. It's not fancy and overly luxurious, but it was very comfortable and a good place for a relaxing stay. I found the beds to be very comfortable for my personal tastes (everyone's is different of course!). Also remember that each condo is slightly different even in the same room type, so it does somewhat depend on which condo you're assigned how happy you'll be (as with any condo at the beach). Be sure to ask for full information about the type of room you want, and review the pictures and floor plans on the website to be sure you're happy with your choice. I also advise talking to a live body to reserve rather than just booking on the website as you'll get better information about the rooms and probably a better room choice.

Room Tip: One bedroom units are not real large in some floor plans, but great for a single, couple, or small f...
