Pros - Accommodations were clean, spacious and very comfortable. Pool was nice being ocean front. Nice to have a poolside bar. Free Fire Show was a lot of fun. Cons: Indoor Lazy River - was tiny and over chlorinated. We spend a lot of time at a chlorinated pool all summer and my eyes couldn't even take the air near... More

Just got back from 10 days in Unit 805. Stayed with my husband and two teens ages 17 and 15. Unit was beautiful! Very spacious, clean and perfectly decorated. View cannot be beat. Kitchen was well stocked. We also found 3 beach chairs in the closet, but 2 of them were broken. Still, a nice touch that the owners had... More

Let me begin by expressing my surprise for several of the reviews below. Many of the complaints I've read in previous reviews either are entirely false or an exaggeration of the truth. I'm not sure what Jennifer (reviewer below) was talking about, I can't for the life of me recall anything that she was yapping about. The lobby is not... More

The location is wonderful! The hotel sits right on the beach, as opposed to many which are across the road. There are private or rental houses surrounding it on the land side and maybe 10 houses on either side right on the beach. Being the only hotel in the immediate vicinity means the beach is not overcrowded at all! The... More

Not my first visit to Myrtle Beach but my first stay at this property. Generally in the past we had stayed at more child oriented properties with all the entertainment amenities for the kids but now they are at an age above those type of places this was easily my first choice and I'm am glad I picked it!

We stayed in a 4 bedroom condo. It was awesome. We had plenty of space for 8 of us. A few things didn't work when we arrived - lamps, tv remote etc. We called the front desk and they were repaired quickly. On site restaurant is quite pricey. Pools are great. Pool furniture is superb. They have typical pool lounge... More

My sister and I stayed at Island Vista to celebrate her 50th birthday. We couldn't have chosen a more perfect place to stay. The suite was clean with an amazing ocean view. The staff were very helpful and friendly. In-room massage service was incredible! The beach was usually not very crowded. The only negative thing I can think of was... More

Our family has always cherished this resort and it did not let us down this year. Our stay was perfect, from the enjoyment of the pristine pools and beach, to the pleasure of sleeping in crisp, cool, clean sheets. I had children in my extended family that particularly loved the pools, and I don't believe I have ever seen water... More

We hadn't been to Myrtle Beach in years so I wasn't sure where we wanted to stay, but i knew I wanted a place away from the crowd and traffic. The good things about it are it is very easy, laid back, away from the crowd. It has easy access to grocery stores and places to eat. It is very... More
