Was upgraded to a 3 bedroom suite because of damage to some of the 2 bedrooms. Awesome food, atmosphere and staff! Highly recommend to anyone! Restaurant was delicious! Pools were awesome, inside and out!

After Hurricane Matthew forced the Hilton Head Marriott to cancel our reservation two days before our trip, my family and I headed to Myrtle Beach instead. We were extremely fortunate to find Island Vista and book one of the few rooms they had available for the weekend. We have a 9 month old so that "home away from home" feeling...

This resort has incredibly friendly staff and the resort is beautiful! The week after Hurricane Mathew and the resort was spotless! I went with a group of ladies New River Community Church and we were treated like welcomed friends. From housekeeping to food service the customer service was impeccable! I will go back as of then as I can.

Best part is the hotel is right on the beach and it was a great ocean view. Beyond that it is very mediocre. First of all they gave us a $10 gift card to use in the bar/restaurant for booking directly with them... I thought cool... let's get a couple drinks. It was happy hour and they said drinks were...

I had read enough reviews about this place being "run down" or "not clean" that I did not expect much. I booked a room here because I wanted to be right on the beach but away from the boardwalk area. (That turned out to be a wise move as motorcyclists kept revving in the street near the SkyWheel area and...

My wife and I recently stayed at Island Vista in Myrtle Beach. We got lucky and hit a great week of good weather in between two rainy weeks! Our room was nice, but not as nicely decorated in the photos on line.....the furniture and decorations were a little dated. Over all the room was comfortable with everything we needed. It...

I'm not sure I can add much of what other reviewers have said. We stayed for five nights with family in September. I splurged and got us a two bedroom, then we were upgraded to a three bedroom, three bathroom. We probably will never have a bigger nicer room. The master bedroom had a huge bathroom with a large tub...

Perfect couple of days as Island Vista. Unpretentious staff, very comfortable beds, good breakfast, nice pools, and a beautiful beach. We were there in the run up to hurricane Matthew and had to leave a day early, but we will definitely return next year and hope that the hurricanes stay away.

Location is the major consideration for us when choosing this hotel. The rooms were nice, big, and clean. The greatest thing about the hotel is the ocean view. If ever you want to be truly pampered from the time you drive up to the last minutes of your departure this is the place.
