“Perfect Family Resort at Myrtle Beach, SC”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

From the moment you check in and all through your stay the staff is so friendly and goes out of their way to meet any of your needs. We rented a one bedroom condo that was large enough to sleep 6 (sleeper sofa and pull down murphy bed). All rooms are oceanfront and the beach is very wide for families. Very large pool area with a heated lazy river section. All attractions are close by if you need to leave but why would you. If you do leave must check out Barefoot Landing-great shopping and numerous eats-the best is Fish Market for the freshest seafood.

Room Tip: all rooms face the ocean so its a matter of how high you want to go up-very large complex

I stayed from 12/26 to 12/29. We were 30 families. I really enjoyed it. The hotel is clean and very close to shopping center. The staff was friendly and we all felt welcome. The meeting room is nice and secluded.

Stayed here weekend after Christmas, WoOnderful view, weather was perfect on Saturday. Only comment was the sofa bed needed blankets for it, only 1 of 4 burners worked on stove and there were no paper towels or napkins, but nothing major. we got around all of it.. Sunday morning the shower watrer took about 40 minutes to heat up, but again no big deal. The rest of room was excellent and met or exceeded our expectations. Breahfast food and service in Just off Main was excellent. Dinner there Saturday night, not so much. Fried seafood, hushpuppies were way over cooked. but everytrhing else was ok. Server needs some personality. Will definitley stay again and would recommend to others. Location was perfect

I have been coming to Avista for about 10 years now and I see they have done some upgrades and like usual it is wonderful. Very relaxing, decor is great, views are wonderful.I will keep coming back again and again! Only negative would be probably need to replace the mattresses though, they are sagging a bit and not good on the back.

Dear snowcamp2010,

Thank you so much for your review on your most recent stay with us but as well as your continued support of the Avista Resort. We are thrilled that you had another great time while with us and that we have been able to continue to impress. We do want to apologize that the mattresses weren't as comfortable as they could have been, but if you could please give me a call at the property so I can see what room you were in so that we could discuss possible mattress upgrades with the owner of that respective unit. I look forward to speaking with you soon and having the opportunity to host you and yours again.

Warmest regards,

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the resort. Rooms were very clean and nice.we were on the 16th floor and had the best ocean view. The indoor pool and hot tub was so relaxing, I recommend this resort to all my family and friends.

Room Tip: "Corner suites are larger and sunny, and has a wonderful ocean view .

Resort was very nice and clean. Great view of pool and beach. Indoor pool and restaurant were very convenient and property was in walking distance to Ocean Drive. However if you want to smoke on property you must reserve a smoking room.

Room Tip: We chose a corner room which gave us view of the pool, beach and street side.

Dear Beatrice T,

Thank you so much for leaving your comments in regards to your stay with us. I am happy to see that overall you had a great time but do apologize for the inconvenience with the smoking rooms. The reason that we do not allow smoking on the balconies any further is due to an ordinance that passed in North Myrtle Beach making it a smoke free city. Smoking must actually be done 150 feet away from any doors and windows. Once again thank you for staying with us and we do hope that you return in the future.

Wife and I stayed for two nights in December 2013. Made reservation on phone and got a good rate of $74 per night included tax. Room oceanfront 15 floor. Clean and very spacious. Garden tub in bath. Highly recommend this place, actually these are condominiums.
