“Third anniversary”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

Islan Vista is the best place to stay in Myrtle Beach. On arriving, the friendly staff upgraded our room from a regular king room to a three bedroom, three bath unit with lots of room. We had a lovely view from the 12th floor balcony. The staff also gave us a $20 meal card to use at the Cypress Room restaraunt. What a surprise!! It was the best meal we had in Myrtle Beach! If you are traveling to Myrtle Beach I would wholeheartedly recommend Island Vista as your destination place!

Absolutely perfect place to stay for some rest and relaxation. Our room was on the Penthouse floor and the views were breathtaking. Our condo was beautiful, spacious, comfortable and exceeded our expectations. We spent our days enjoying the many choices of pools, hot tubs and the beach being pampered with food and drinks from the Tiki Bar. Morning and evening meals at the restaurant were delicious. The staff was amazing, friendly helpful and always able to provide for our comfort. We will definitely return for our next vacation.

Room Tip: For amazing views ask for the penthouse floor. Loved watching the sunrises!

We stayed on the 8th floor. The balcony had a great view. This area of the beach is not very crowded. Wireless internet was fast and I did not have any trouble with it. Staff seemed friendly. My only complaints are the parking garage and pools. The parking is very tight. But it is attached to the hotel so you don't have to cross the street. The heated pools were cold. The pools and pool area were clean. Rest rooms near the pool is a plus. I would most likely stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a room on a higher floor

Absolutely the perfect resort! Our extended family of thirteen spent our Easter break at Island Vista again. Spotless facility..delicious food in the restaurant..plenty of space in our four bedroom condo to spread out or hang together. The rooms are spacious, the view amazing. Staff were on the floor throughout the day to take care of our needs. The area is residential so our beach is family oriented and not crowded. We can't wait to return!!

Room Tip: We've stayed in corner rooms and mid-hall room and found each to be roomy and comfortable. Grea...

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.
