“We'll be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

We chose Island Vista from the reviews and ratings on Trip Advisor, and we werent disappointed! Just finishing up our 4 night stay and we will def be back here soon! The rooms are super spacious and beautiful. They are very clean and kitchen is fully stocked with all the glasses, utensils, pots, pans and plates you need. The bed, sheets and furniture are very comfortable. The staff is friendly. The Cypress Room restaurant had great breakfast, but wouldnt recommend spending your money there for dinner. Over priced for the quality of food. If you are looking for luxury at a very reasonable price, Island Vista is your place.

This was our second year of staying at the Island Vista Resort. It was a wonderful month, but this year the weather was not good. The resort has an outdoor hot tub that a lot of people used because of the cold temperatures. The river ride inside and the indoor hot tubs were also used a lot. They do heat the pools outside, but because of the weather it still wasn't warm enough to enjoy. The hotel was clean as always, the restaurant was great as usual, and the staff at the front desk was friendly and helpful as always. The grounds are always immaculate also. You always knew what day the maid was coming in, so that made it easy to make your plans around. We will be going down again next year, because we love this resort and the beach is so wide and beautiful to walk.

Room Tip: I 've had two different rooms on our two stays down there and both were great. All are oceanfro...

I usually only stay at Marriott when traveling for vacation, but I chose this place b/c Marriott was booked for the week. And I was not disappointed! We had the very basic 2 queen oceanfront suite, and it was very spacious, clean, and all the furniture was in excellent condition. There's a washer/dryer, full kitchen w/ oven, microwave, garbage disposal in sink, dishwasher. I didn't even have to buy utensils, as the cabinets were full with glass cups, full set of knives, forks, and spoons, plates, bowls, pots/pans, baking ware, etc. The oceanfront balcony view was perfect, the sun is directly overhead in the morning, but can't see the sunset from the hotel's location. You have easy access to the indoor and outdoor pool, and just a few more steps you are out on the beach. And the hotel is minutes away from the mainstream/boardwalk of myrtle beach. The staff was very friendly.
The only problem was the parking. They have a garage that have very tight and small parking spaces. You have to pretty much unload/load your luggage before you park because there will only be enough room to squeeze your body out of the car. The hotel is very much kid friendly, and I heard during the summer they have tons of children's activities. We've already booked our stay for the summer with them

My family went here for a 3 day weekend in March. We got a great deal on a fabulous room. There "basic room" is like a small apartment. Lots of space and could have easily slept 7-8 people. It was clean, the beach was clean, the staff were very friendly and polite. This was our first hotel experience in about 5 years as we normally would rent a beach house but we wanted a nice indoor pool for my daughter. The pools were great and heated. Great decor. Very relaxing atmosphere. We had breakfast in the hotel restaurant and it was very good with a great view of the ocean. I would highly recommend this hotel resort!! They did offer in room massages but I am afriad I did not get to try those:(

The staff are really friendly and professional. It is really clean and looks great. Makes you feel cozy. I have decided that every time I go to Myrtle Beach I will always stay at The Island Vista. You are able to see over the city and the ocean from most rooms. The balcony oversees the ocean while your front door oversees the city. I am glad I choose this Hotel to stay at.

Room Tip: You could see the Ocean and city from most rooms. Try to get in the center of the building due to pa...
