We researched several places before booking at Island Vista Resort, and we were very happy with our choice! We chose the larger room with two bedrooms for our family of four. We ended up with an ocean view in the penthouse and loved it. An added bonus was a washer and dryer right in our room. The kids loved the...

Here for four days at a conference. Suite on 7th floor overlooking ocean was a bargain. Our conference fee came with a food package. While the food quality was very good, and the dining room service was attentive, the kitchen seemed to be continually overwhelmed and took way too long to get out breakfasts. The one formal dinner went better...

We visited this hotel because our usual hotel was booked for the week we chose. We were not disapointed!!! This is a great resort! We had an oceanfront room with two queens, very clean and excellent room service. Pools were great and warm. The locations was fantastic as it was in a quiet residental area but only a minute from...

My family of five stayed here the first time we came to myrtle beach. I was overwhelmed by the amount of hotels and condos there are. But finding the right one was hard. The condo we rented was amazing. We got the one bedroom suite with the ocean view. The rooms don't seam like a hotel but much more like...

This hotel was a real let down, and we were shocked that Frommers (which we usually find reliable) gave it 2 out of 3 stars. The beds were uncomfortable, everything was really dated, the lobby was musty and cramped, and the corner "ocean view" rooms had a terrible setup. The way these corner rooms are set up is as follows:...

Thank you for your recent review. I must say, the commentary about the Island Vista by Frommer’s on their travel site certainly was a glowing review. Frommer’s even mentioned the beautiful cypress wood throughout the lobby… many guests have commented about the warmth offered by that craftsmanship, our exclusive floral arrangements, and even our fireplace. This year, we have replaced...

Stayed here for the 4 bedroom suite. We had six guys for a golf trip. The suite was huge and was very clean. All the bedrooms had their own bathroom with shower. Our package included breakfast which was very good. Resort is secluded and quite. Nothing close by to walk to, so a car is recommended. Unless you drive a...

Had a wonderful stay at the Island Vista Resort. Everything was top notch from check in, to the room, to the Cypress Grill where we had a fabulous breakfast. Close to everything without being in the crowds of Myrtle Beach.
