Stayed here with my husband and 3 year old daughter. I was shocked at how huge our room was! We stayed in a one bedroom, ocean view on the 9th floor. The views of the ocean from our balcony were fantastic! The kitchen in the suite was well stocked and had all the basic things we needed to get by. I loved having the stacked washer and dryer in our room as well, really helpful when you are spending time at the beach. Housekeeping was great, never actually saw them but our room always ended up being clean when we'd come back from the beach. Front desk staff was great and got us tickets to a dinner show at a discount rate. Loved the grounds and the pools. The pools were great for kids and great for parents too with the tiki bar for drinks and entertainment. Steps from the beach. We will surely return next time we visit myrtle beach.

The staff at the Island Vista was great. Everyone at the front desk was super nice but Daryl Clark really stood out. Joey Barker in the golf department did an outstanding job I had to amend my reservations at the last minute and she took care of it very timely and efficiently with a big saving for me. The restaurant is great and the wait staff can not be outdone. Breakfast every morning hot and prepared the way that was requested. They even opened early for us the morning we were leaving so we could eat one more time. We were so impressed that we're returning in April for another vacation.

Wonderful time. Staff, accommodations, and breakfast were great. Golf staff did an excellent job and we were always treated with a friendly staff and clean conditions. Location is a plus. parking is next to building which helps so much.

My husband and I stayed at the Island Vista this past weekend and it was fantastic, from the front desk attended by Micki, who made us feel so welcome, to the beautiful room and the wonderful restaurant. We stayed on the top floor with a view of the beach. The room was spotless and decorated beautifully. We love to walk and the hotel is located in a beautiful neighborhood. The manager of the hotel, Mr. Adcox, was very accommodating and took time out of his schedule to tell us about places to go in Myrtle Beach, which we enjoyed during our stay. We ate breakfast in the hotel resaurant and the food was delicious. I have to say the grits were the best I have ever had!This was our first stay at the island Vista and we will return. Kudos to the staff!

We stayed 8th floor side ocean view , very nice room good size bath 2 comfortable double beds came with small refrigerator and microwave . I called front desk one time-- the controls and the heater/ac could not be read , service man came right away and fixed . The room was clean and had flat screen tv which was good however the cable not that great .Did not use the pools and I didn't see any one else either , they were some under roof but not enclosed heated space The breakfast in the restaurant was good not crazy about the lunch and late check-out was not allowed . The location is on the north end of Myrtle Beach where they are not quite as many other hotels , its a little less crowded than further south overall I would stay again as it one of the nicer hotels on the strand

My husband and I stayed at Island Vista for our honeymoon in October. We got a great rate for the week. The room was fabulous...it was very large and spacious with 2 bathrooms, an in-room safe, washer/dryer, full kitchen, awesome master bathroom with shower, double sink and whirlpool tub plus much more. My favorite part was having the balcony accessible from both the bedroom and living room. The view was fabulous. Nice indoor and outdoor pools/jacuzzis. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. We checked out and after spending the day around Myrtle Beach decided to stay another night and went to another hotel down the strip. It was a horrible experience...needless to say we came back to Island VIsta at 10:30 pm and we got a penthouse room for a GREAT rate. Everyone was very nice. We won't go anywhere else when we return to Myrtle Beach. I would recommend this place to everyone!
