“Island Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

This was my first time back to Island Vista in over 4 years, and what a pleasure it was. Arrived Thursday for a long weekend, and guest services had been able to move some reservations and put my daughter and I in the Queen Suite a night early. We love going to the Cyprus Room for breakfast each morning, and then heading out to the pool for the day. All of the staff are friendly and courteous, and our stay was fabulous. The rooms, the view, the beach area with certified life guards all made for a great trip! Wish I was still there, but school and work calls, so we will look forward to our next trip with great anticipation. BTW, the Filet Mignon at the Cyprus Room on Sunday night for dinner was outstanding, be sure and ask for the corn pudding. Thank you to all the great staff!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: The Queen Suite offers a 1 bedroom with two queen beds, and a Murphy Bed that pulls down from the di...

This was our fourth visit to Island Vista with our children and grandchildren. Once again they exceeded our expectations. The staff is first class, check-in was a breeze and plenty of safe, secure parking. We had a three bedroom unit which was spotless, perfectly appointed throughout including the kitchen. We thoroughly enjoyed the pools and lazy river. There was plenty of organized activities for children each day, our grandchildren enjoyed arts and crafts, hair braiding, etc., when they were tired of spending time at the beach. All activities were conducted by very polite, well prepared young adults. We enjoyed the on-site entertainment a couple of evenings which was family friendly and very entertaining. The restaurant is top shelf with a great menu. Island Vista is the only facility we consider when vacationing at Myrtle Beach.

Room Tip: We have never had a bad room at Island Vista, any room should be a delight....

Great location north of the busier parts of Myrtle Beach. Rooms are nice. Service is good. Beach is very nice. Umbrellas set up every morning..but I think you have to pay for them. Pool is nice. There is a covered pool with a lazy river as well.
When I go back to Myrtle Beach I will be staying here again.

This was iur first stay at the Island Vista. We have stayed at various hotels in Myrtle Beach over the past 6 years. This was by far our favorite hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The facilities were kept very clean. The layout of the facilities was great. This is located in a quiet residential area but, is in close walking distance to resturaunts and shops. The price was comparable to other places that we have stayed. We enjoyed the pool side music and shows on various nites. We were happy that they had entertainment offerings and did not have to leave the resort. We will be returning to the Island Vista soon.

We stay at Island Vista a lot and are ALWAYS pleased. Wonderful amenities that you don't always find. New beds, living room furniture and a great kids club too. Kids can enjoy time with other kids doing fun supervised activities while you enjoy some adult time!!

The on site restaurant is Fantastic for both breakfast and dinner. The staff is outstanding!! Truly a great price for a quality meal.

This ocean front resort has much to offer whether a family, group of golfers or snow birds!!! Super clean, super comfortable.

We stayed in unit 702, a three bedroom ocean front ( they are all ocean front) with many extras (flat screens, stocked kitchen, DVD players, games etc)

You cannot go wrong at Island Vista!!

We celebrated our 50th anniversary with 21 of our children, their spouses and our 11 grandchildren at Island Vista. We chose the location off of TripAdvisor because it seemed to have everything: beach, pools, restaurant, tiki bar, large suites with kitchens, and balconies, We were not disappointed. Our week long celebration was enhanced by this wonderful hotel. Everyone had fun especially the kids who range in age from 6 months to 24 years. This is a family resort; if you don't like lots of kids, chose another hotel. We travel a great deal and this is, by far, one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at.

Room Tip: All five suites we rented were lovely, beautiful and comfortable bedding, completely equipped kitche...
