The Hotel worked with me to established the golf package and the selection was very good.The suite was very nice on the ocean.The breakfast which was included the golf package was excellent. In fact we ate several dinners at the hotel and they were excellent.This was the best hotel we have stayed in at Myrtle Beach and we have been at myrtle many times.

My husband and I came across Island Vista while walking along the beach last summer. It seemed to have everything we needed for our family vacation. It did not disappoint. We just spent 8 wonderful days in early May. Our 3 bedroom, 3 bath room was immaculate and stayed that way thanks to excellent and friendly housekeeping. The view of the ocean was spectacular. We enjoyed the uncrowded beach as well as the pools, hot tubs, and lazy river. We enjoyed lunch from the Tiki hut on several days. And the food from the Cypress Room was outstanding.
We will definitely return next year.

Recently spent six days at the Island Vista and absolutely loved it. Room was spotless, and everyone from the front desk to the cleaning staff could not have been more pleasant. The restaurant at the hotel was top shelf and definitely worth a visit. They treat you like family. The only advice I would give is that if you drive definitely bring beach chairs, umbrella, etc. because they do not provide them and you will have to rent them at $30.00 per day which can be quite costly if you intend to go to the beach every day. Definitely coming back!

I'm very picky when it comes to choosing a hotel for my family. Utilizing the trip advisor app on my iPhone, allowed me to compare the top five hotels. After doing this and visiting the hotel websites, Island Vista had everything that we were looking for in an oceanfront hotel! I can honestly say that we were amazed at check-in, and pleased with our decision! We will definitely be staying there from now on, every time we visit Myrtle Beach!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Island Vista resort. We were in room 411, and the view was spectacular. The beach was uncrowded and clean. Service abounds at this location, from the front desk staff to the bartender at the tiki hut. The Cypress Room restaurant located on site was intimate and and the food and service were very good. We took this little getaway for our 19th anniversary celebration, and it was perfect!
