My husband, son and I have been going to Myrtle Beach for about seven years now. Up until this year we stayed at Dunes Village...never again. It's changed management and has gone downhill fast. One spring day on the May long weekend I was in our local pool shop getting supplies to open our pool for the summer. I saw...

Husband and I took a long weekend in myrtle beach and wanted to stay somewhere we haven't before. I can say that this resort had beautiful grounds and pool area. The location is a little more private which was perfect for us, and it was right on the beach. Loved that. The only complaint I have is the mattress on...

The staff is friendly and the food in the restaurant is amazing. Each morning I wake up to the beautiful sound of the ocean and amazing views of the sun rising and setting. Can't wait for my next trip back to Island Vista....❤💤😊

We stayed at the Island Vista for one week in February. We loved it. We stayed in a one-room suite on the top floor. It had a full kitchen and was outfitted with everything we needed. The view was amazing and there were comfortable chairs on the balcony. We have no complaints about the room. Wait, one complaint. The bedroom...

This was my first trip to Myrtle Beach and I stayed at Island Vista. The stay was absolutely awesome! Check in was fast and easy. Shelie and Lorie were amazing!! My suite was on a lower level and I prefer to be higher for the oceanfront view. Shelie and Lorie immediately accommodated me by switching my room to a level...

Island vista sits on a Beautiful strip, not many other hotels around, so much less chaotic as compared to other myrtle beach hotels. We rented a 3 BR corner unit and were on 10th floor. Great view. Unit was fine, clean, but nothing special. Amenities were excellent. Heated outdoor pool was great and indoor pool was fantastic for the kids.

My extended family and I come here every year and it never ceases to amaze me how friendly the staff is and how beautiful the property. The room was clean and well maintained, we had a wonderful time at the pools (the indoor pools are just the right size for fun; you can see your kids from every angle of...

We spent a weekend at the Island Vista and it was great. We had a 1 bedroom ocean front suite and it was really nice. The staff was friendly and the view was gorgeous! The location worked well for us. It is just a bit north of the boardwalk so many of the fun things to do are only a...

My husband and I loved our stay at the Island Vista. We visited Myrtle Beach at Christmas because we wanted to see all it had to offer for the holidays. We also chose Island Vista because we wanted to be away from the action and just have a quiet vacation. The room was spacious, clean and had everything you could...

“Lower rooms have direct garage access, but upper rooms are further from the pool 'noise'. Both good options.”
