This was our 4th stay at island vista and the ocean front condo and staff were excellent as usual. We always book a grand one bedroom two bath for my wife and I, and cannot say enough about the cleanliness, spaciousness, and comfort of the unit. The kitchen is well equipped, and the living room and bedroom furniture are exceptional and beyond my expectations. There is a large balcony with a table and chairs as well as several comfortable rockers to enjoy the oceanfront sun all day long. The resort offers numerous outdoor and indoor pools. The beach is just a short distance over the well maintained sand dunes. The parking garage is very easy access and conveniently located to the condos. The Cypress Room offers exceptionally good food and genteel southern service. The resort staff are friendly and very hospitable. The housekeeping team is efficient and does a great job even by my picky standards! We always are sad to leave at the end of our stay and anxious to plan our next visit. We cannot be more satisfied nor think of a better place to vacation.

We stayed in a 10th floor suite with a great view ( I think all the suites have an ocean view). This is a beautiful stretch of beach..not overly crowded in November.
Helpful staff and a very fine restaurant,,the Cypress room.
There was carpet upgrading in progress in parts of the building...Our suite was in need of this ; maybe it is on the list for next month.
Housekeeping was good most days some inconsistency but overall good..We had to close our balcony doors several times to keep out the cigarette and cigar smoke from other balconies (presumably) It is supposed to be non smoking but I suppose that it difficult to enforce

Passes the eye test with flying colors just not what I expected. Looks like a very nice 5 star hotel but with 3.5 star quality! Stayed here for 1 nite in room 420. The room is set up nicely and is comfortable for the most part. My issues though was the shower has waaayyy too much water pressure and couldn't be adjusted felt like needles beating your skin. Also while sleeping you can hear the nxt room showering loudly enough that it wakes you up. The lamp on nite stand nxt to bed was broken so had to get up out of bed just to turn off. Not really a huge issue or deal breaker but for the way the room is set up it would've been better to just turn over and hit button on lamp to cut off instead of getting out of bed and walk over to cut light switch off. Remote to TV very slowly response

Thank you for your review and for those positive comments. Once in a while, you might read about very low water pressure at other resorts, but you probably won’t see that here! It can usually be adjusted with the control valve, but that and other items are checked on a rotating schedule as part of a detailed preventative maintenance program. We are very busy throughout the year, but when a room becomes available for such attention, we want to find something like that before our guests do. We apologize for any inconvenience that you experienced.

We are very excited about some new construction procedures this year which will include (among other things) beautiful new flooring throughout the resort. Each year when the quieter winter months arrive, we take advantage of the time and find new ways to assure that we provide the best vacation experience available in Myrtle Beach. Thank you for letting us hear from you, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

We stayed in a 3 bedroom corner suite. The suite was clean although I thought a little dated. The dryer took a long time to dry our clothes.
The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful!
We enjoyed our stay and will visit again next year!

We wanted a weekend getaway for our first anniversary so headed to Myrtle Beach. The Island Vista suited all out needs. We stayed on the "penthouse" level. Lovely view, full kitchen, spacious room. It felt clean.

Little odd that the bedroom is far from the balcony and that it has a window that looks into the hotel's corridor.

Restaurant downstairs was very convenient (will review it separately)

Several sparkly pools and even a lazy river right on the lobby level. Wish it had been a little warmer.

We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.
