Upon checking in the reception wad very nice and professional, we received a $19.00 gift card just for booking directly through them, which I though was awesome!!!. The room is everything my husband and I expected. The oceanfront view is amazing. The room was clean, bed sheets clean, however, the sofa in our room was very dirty. Other than that... More

Checked in to this hotel because we saw the great reviews. First room had soap scum and hair still in the shower, dust on furniture and hanging from the ceiling fan. Called down and they sent a housekeeper, who told us the shower would have to be cleaned by maintenance? Asked for a new room, this room had mildew covering... More

This was our family's 2 time to this resort. The rooms were very clean and nicely decorated. The staff were very friendly. We ate in the Cypress room for dinner and it was superb cuisine. The only negative of this resort is their exercise room. The equipment is slightly outdated and have limited treadmills which are always a favorite. We... More

Amazing place to stay. The staff was super friendly staff, beautiful setting right on the beach, food at the Cypress Room was great. Two large outdoor pools were great. The indoor lazy river was fun. Nice indoor and outdoor hot tubs. 2 bedroom oceanfront suite was great.

No complaints. Everything as expected. Probably the nicest place we have stayed at in our 15+ trips to Myrtle Beach over the years. The absolute best part is the location; not in the center of everything so it has a nice private beach and mostly quiet residential area on 3 sides. Yet, close drive to all activities and to North...

I couldn't find anything else with near the amenities of this hotel anywhere near the same price. We visited in early September getting in after dinner on a Friday night after driving from the...

We loved our stay at Island Vista! We stayed in two rooms while there, and both were beautifully appointed (get a front view room, not ocean view). They have a great outdoor pool area overlooking the ocean. It is family friendly with a great indoor pool area for kids, but has more of an adult feel. Just the right balance... More

Stayed at island vista this year instead of the caribean resort. We loved it ghe rooms were bigger and more updated. I loved the pool area. There were plenty of seats and lounges with lots of umbrellas and palm trees to get out of the direct sun. Staff has friendly and helpful

We decided to just take a quick 2 night trip to the beach. We typically stay at the North Beach Plantation but they have gotten so expensive. I started doing research and the Island Vista kept coming up. Boy, what a find. We choose a 1 bedroom suite (904). My only disappointment was they did not have a king bed... More
