“Beautiful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

My stay at the Island Vista Resort was a rejuvenating experience, which I witnessed each morning movement and sound of the ocean tides from my oceanfront balcony. I enjoyed the walks and jogs on the beach along with absorbing the sun on the beach recliners that are provided by the Island Vista Resort. The luxury of the Jacuzzi and Oasis (indoor pool) enticed my children and me to return each day. From customer service to the comfort of the suite and other amenities/conveniences made me feel at home. My family and I will definitely stay at the Island Vista Resort again.

This was the second time my husband and I stayed at Island Vista. Beautiful views of the ocean with large, less conjested beach area. Property is clean and maintained excellently. Several pools & hot tubs. There are a variety of sizes of units. The unit we had this time was actually called a suite, with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, large living room.. It was beautifully designed and spacious. Furniture & appliances looked new. Dining room/restaurant provides very good food and service, and views of the ocean waves. We enjoyed breakfast and dinner very much. (The best Grouper meal I've had in MB!) The staff, from the front desk, to the restaurant, to the housekeeping crew, to the bellhop, were always courteous and helpful.

I at first gave them an excellent rating, but changed it due to the only negative I find with the property. The parking layout is not the best. I know parking, and a lack of space, is an issue for many resorts on the waterfront in MB. This is better than some, worse than others. The parking garages are "tight" and not the easiest access to rooms. My husband has mobility issues, so close "handicapped parking" was important. With only two HC spots, and limited 15 min. loading & unloading spots in front of the resort, in a non-garage setting, it caused some turmoil.

I just hosted a conference here, and I was delighted with the outcome. My participants came from all over the U.S., and they raved about the spacious rooms, the reasonable rates, and the incomparable view. The Island Vista is in a peaceful residential neighborhood, and all rooms look directly out on the ocean. The group sales staff is professional and competent, and they will guide you in making all the best arrangements. The food is first rate, and the service staff is warm and accommodating. What a relief--they made event planning relatively painless!

Room Tip: The 3-bedroom condos are amazing.

hotel located in a quiet section of M.B. All rooms have a balcony over looking the ocean. our group - 12 people - were treated very well. Breakfasts were great - had 1 group dinner. Excellent.

Could walk to busy section of M. B but it was probably 1 mile. We drove it; plenty of parking in May but don't know about summer time.
Caution - GPS did not recognize the number of the street.

A nice beachfront property away from the bussle of "the strip". The staff is very pleasant and welcoming which gives the feel of a much smaller property. Beautiful stretch of beach with nice outdoor and indoor (mostly for kids) pools. Convenient to restaurants and shopping.

Room Tip: All rooms are oceanfront or oceanview. We saved money with a oceanview and had a great view of the...

Great place to stay away from the crowds. The Vista is situated in a residential area which is a quiet street. Our room was very clean & up to date. It was actually more than we had reserved. The staff was kind enough to uprade us to a 2 bedroom 2 bath suite oceanfront!! Great views!! We were close enough to several restaurants on the Grand Strand. The Cypress Room was a nice restaurant & we ate there a couple of times, but my wife & I like to go out & explore the town. All in all, we will return

Room Tip: Always go for the oceanfront

The Island Vista Resort is the # 1 hotel in Myrtle Beach in my opinion. Myrtle Beach has been my family's vacation destination since the mid 1950's. We have stayed at a lot of the hotels in the area, but now Island Vista is our hotel of choice! The location is perfect and it's located in a residential area, so it is not congested. It's quiet and a great place to relax. And to top it off, it has a wonderful restaurant with excellent food! The hotel staff and restaurant staff are very friendly and accommodating. The indoor pool is awesome! I wish I could own one of the condos there!!! I have recommended this hotel to other family and friends and would highly recommend the Island Vista to anyone! Check it out, I feel sure it will become your family's hotel of choice!
