I had a wonderful visit with my husband. The room was fantastic, we have stayed in several different rooms and this time it was a one bedroom. More than adequate for my husband and I. Quiet,great service,excellent staff. We have stayed here often enough that we have learned the quirks of the parking garage and that is not an issue.I...

We have stayed at the Island Vista many times and the stay is always great. The grounds are immaculate, the staff is friendly and professional. It is set on the beach by itself, so you are kind of away from the crowds and at night it is quiet. The condos are clean and are extremely nice. These are the reasons...

I love this place. We have been staying at Island Vista for our July vacation for numerous years. Some may say that it is pricy, but it is worth every penny. The facility is located in an upscale residential area, is beautiful, clean, well maintained, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We stay in a three bedroom condo...

Island Vista Hotel is a beautiful condo hotel unlike any other in Myrtle Beach. The beautifully landscaped lawn and pool area offers both a place to relax under shady palm trees and a place to relax in the sun. There is also a covered pool area for children. There is a veranda with comfortable chairs that overlooks the lawn and...

We go to Island Vista every year and can't wait to get back. Our family get's multiple suites - a three bedroom for me, my husband, son (15) and daughter (16); and a three bedroom for my sister, her husband and two boys (ages 7 and 8) and our parents (over 70). So here's what I love, there is something...

We stayed at the Island Vista for a week in June. We booked through the hotel rather than VRBO, which would have been much cheaper, because we could not book Saturday to Saturday due to our schedules. So, I knew going into it that we were paying twice as much as some others. When we arrived, the front desk was...

Thank you for your review and for your kind comments. I am not actually familiar with rates offered through VRBO and I suppose they depend on the individual owner. As a guest of the Island Vista, there are many things available for your pleasure and convenience… the 24-hour services at our front desk, complimentary newspapers, bellman service, pool towel service,...

Let's first say that I was more than skeptical to try a new hotel. It takes a lot to meet my expectations and to make me happy and this hotel did just that! It actually exceeded my expectations. We visited this hotel from July 7 - 12. Check in was a little delayed by 20 minutes but I'd rather the...
