We loved this place. Great for kids and adults. Restaurant was ok and convenient, but not quite up to par with other restaurants in the area. House keeping was good but spotty since they missed our room a couple of times. The biggest complaint was the wifi. Almost usable and no good cell coverage in the place. Overall a great... More

We had a great stay at Island Vista! We were in a 3 bedroom oceanfront room, very clean and had everything you could need. We enjoyed the quiet section of the beach, the pools were clean not crowded. No dislikes...we will be back in August! Everything from checkin to checkout was pleasant and welcoming.

Inside the Condo was beautiful! Great deal on price for the place. We went at the end of April. Kid friendly. We were a party of 4 adults, 4 kids all 5yrs and under, and they had a blast. Apparently was off season, the outside bar was open limited days/hours. Love the Mai Tai's! Great vacay, would definitely come back... More

I decided to have my staff meeting at the beach...yes I'm the coolest boss ever...lol. The staff at the resort went above and beyond for my Team. We had beautiful accommodations...sleeping rooms and meeting rooms. Kathy and Sheila in the Sales dept made sure every detail was taken care of. The hotel is beautiful, well kept, plenty to do and...

To start with we had no expectations but overall it turned out to be a good stay. The check in was delayed, the room was not ready till 4:15 PM - we were waiting in the lobby after a very long drive. Accommodation: we had a 1 bedroom unit on 8th floor. It had a large living room, good sized... More

Location: solid location only about 15 minutes from everything give or take. Room: we stayed in a three bedroom suite on the 11th floor. Room is very nice and clean and fully equipped. awesome balcony with fantastic views. My wife loved the room.

Thank you for your review and especially for all the positive points! I agree, our location is tops… even during the busiest weeks of summer, the nature of our residential neighborhood allows for a much less crowded beach. The only issue seems to have been the exercise room… it is actually meant to be an amenity for those who want... More

We were disappointed in the customer service for the first time. Previous years, we had found the staff very welcoming and accommodating. As a repeat guest having spent over $10,000 at this resort over the past years, we encountered one problem after another. Walked into a dirty room (coffee filter from previous guest in coffeepot, large food crumbs all over... More

Thank you for expressing yourself on Trip Advisor. As with any issue reported, we respond immediately with the solution… IT issues are a mystery to many of us, and this is why the experts arrived. Wireless signals travel via radio devices installed in various locations throughout the resort. In the first visit, when the problem was analyzed, it just vanished... More

We had an awesome week at Island Vista! The villa was clean spacious and completely stocked. The unit we stayed in exceeded our expectations and we definitely hope to get it again. We love the Cypress Room-everything was delicious but breakfast is our favorite. All of the staff at this restaurant is friendly and efficient but Terry was above and... More

In the past we have loved coming to Island Vista. It was a perfect place for families. This year we noticed several issues that changed our opinion. The first being when the staff was making repairs in the indoor pool. It was during peak swim time for kids and they had some sort of contraption crossing over the lazy river... More

Thank you for choosing the Island Vista as your host in Myrtle Beach for so many years. Some explanation of the process you saw should have been offered at that time… just a few years ago, state safety laws changed to require that pool enclosure windows and panels become permanent fixtures, not the removable sort from previous years.
