“Exceeded expectations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

Have just returned from a stay at Island Vista over spring break with my family. I booked online, read previous reviews, but was delighted to find that the accommodation exceeded our expectations. Our condo was beautiful, and huge, and was comfortable for the 6 of us. The view of the ocean from the lounge area and the master bedroom is spectacular, and you can fling the doors open and just listen to the waves. The pools are great, both indoor and outdoor, and the beach is just steps away. It is a beautiful stretch of beach too. Only had breakfast in the restaurant, but it was very good, and we had drinks at the Tikki bar in the afternoon. Would have liked that to stay open longer, but we were there in low season. Everything else in Myrtle beach is a short drive away. We had a wonderful time and have no complaints. Our car would not fit in the garage as we have a roof box, but there was no problem parking outside. Would love to go back!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms have sea views? we were on the 9th floor, and all we could hear were the waves...

Our family spent Spring Break 2012 at Island Vista, Myrtle Beach and had an incredible time. The resort is beautiful and the staff is warm and friendly. Our queen suite was clean, comfortable and well equipped with a kitchen. The resort is right on the beach in a residential area so it was not crowded. I would highly recommend staying here and our family is looking forward to returning.

We came in 2009, 2011 and 2012. Island Vista service is excellent and the employees are very gracious. Only issue we had was the parking garage is a tight squeeze but we worked it out. Plenty to do in MB. We love Barefoot Landing! The pool and hot tub was great even the outdoor pool was heated better then it had been the first two times we came. I highly recommend eating in the Cypress Room. The food is really good. We also had room service and even the breakfast portions surprised us! It was a really great vacation and we look forward to coming back 2013. This year we stayed 6N and 7D but are thinking of extending it next year if we get a good price. Awesome place to take your family.

My husband and I spent the month of March 2012 at the Island Vista Resort. It was the best vacation we have ever had. The staff was really helpful, the rooms were beautiful. It was very clean and the grounds immaculate. The restaurant on the premises , The Cypress restaurant had excellent food.
The resort is located on Ocean Blvd in a mostly residential section so you really had the beach pretty much to yourself. The location also was within a short distance from other restaurants and attractions.
Saw a show at the Alabama theater which was very good. If you have a chance to go to Myrtle beach. I highly recommend the Island Vista.

Room Tip: Basically all the rooms are great. All are oceanfront. The only thing I would do is ask for one from...

On a recent trip to Myrtle Beach, SC, we stayed at the Island Vista, and it was first-class!
Suites are beautifully decorated and clean! Three Bedroom suite/condo had plenty of open area living space ... even dining room table for 8!!! Staff was friendly and courteous! Great first impression driving up to the property and it lived up to all expectations! A must stay in Myrtle Beach, SC!

We recently stayed 4 nights here on our Easter break wih our family. This resort exceeded our expectations and we found the online reviews to be very helpful and accurate. The only complaint I had was that the parking garage was a tight squeeze, but it was never a problem to find a spot. The suites were very clean, and were cleaned promptly every morning. Every request we had for extra supplies etc was met with quick service. The pools were a big hit with the kids and the beachfront is really well maintained. The location is ideal if you want to be close to activities but away from all the night/adult activities Myrtle Beach is known for. We would go there again in a heartbeat.
When we booked our room we were unable to get the same room for the entire trip due to availability. However, when we checked in they had upgraded up to a better suite so we would not have to change rooms. This made our whole vacation so much easier and was greatly appreciated.

Room Tip: I think they are all good- all face the water.

Just got back from an incredible 4 day stay at the Island Vista in Myrtle Beach. This hotel is phenomenal. Had a 1 bedroom condo with lots of room. Housekeeping staff kept it spotless. Had in-room spa treatment - I highly recommend it - price was excellent and quality of treatment outstanding. Dinner at Cypress Room was superb. Staff gave excellent advice for other restaurants to try. Already planning next years trip!!!!!

Room Tip: Get an oceanfront condo rather than an oceanview room, for the few extra dollars - the view is worth...
