It's beautiful with gorgeous views but please research all of your possible hotel choices and choose wisely. Also look at previous issue reported to see how Managment responded. The area is very and quit.

Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor. I agree completely, definitely use caution if you are reviewing all of your possible hotel choices, especially if they don’t include The Island Vista! The previous report was actually 5-star, and we can’t help but wonder if you meant to hit the fifth one instead of the first one? That last statement... More

Pleasantly surprised by the spacious one bedroom we booked. Full kitchen with dishes, washer and dryer, nice deck overlooking the breathtaking Atlantic. The pool is lovely, but pool deck area isn't huge, although is sufficient and we enjoyed it. We love the seclusion of Island Vista is in a residential area, makes you feel like you have the beach to... More

Thank you for your review and especially for the positive comments about our location, amenities, and front desk staff. One feature of Trip Advisor is the anonymous nature of the site… that’s great, but it really makes it difficult for a host hotel to investigate specific instances such as a delay in housekeeping, a mechanical malfunction, or poor communication from...

THE UNIT: We stayed in Condo #913...privately owned and not managed by the resort. So, no daily maid service. No replenishing of supplies like trash bags, tp, paper towels, etc. No beach chairs as promised. Boogie boards broken. Pool towels in unit old and slightly bigger than hand towels. Cost us about $150 more than if we would have booked... More

Thank you for your Trip Advisor review, and we certainly agree! It is unfortunate that you didn’t get to have the true Island Vista experience.

We loved The Island Vista. Our grandchildren especially loved the pools. The grounds were beautiful and immaculate. They had plenty of chairs and umbrellas throughout the lush grass surrounding the pools and grounds, including rocking chairs. Our condo was great. The resort is in a perfect location. Unfortunately, Hurricane Matthew was on our heels and we were forced to leave... More

If you are looking for a ocean front hotel off season with a great rate this is for your best bet. Clean and well maintained plenty of parking. my only complaint was the pool side bar was closed but considering the season I understand. There is an indoor pool with a large comfortable hot tub.

The facility in the condo is very nice and very spacious. We did have an issue with the housekeepers- we were planning on giving a tip and we put it in the envelope for the housekeeper and she took the money without actually cleaning the room or restocking towels or anything. Other than this, the resort is lovely and convenient,... More

Great place to stay. Always clean and the view is second to none. Every room faces the ocean. Watch the dolphins in the morning on the deck. Close to great restaurants and all attractions, yet quiet and not too busy.
