Definitely NOT luxury. I really wanted to like this place. I cant fathom the 5 star reviews, maybe we came at a bad time. My husband finally planned a trip so I was so excited. But when I came home to see what they are asking for this place. It's a big no for me... I'll keep it simple. PROS: 1.Location and views perfect. A bit away from attractions and stores for basic needs though. Beach is stunning, although you can not setup just anywhere, you have to be behind the resorts rental chairs or use no umbrella. 2. Cypress Room, every meal was perfect. 3.Maintenance and housekeeping staff nice and helpful. 3. Room was large and clean and with all the appliances one needs. CONS 1. NO HOUSEKEEPING!! just once a week and we apparently came the day after they service. As a mom of two young sons weekly housekeeping turns a vacation into work. 2. No Amenities. Other than the pools, and the pools are more for lounging not swimming unless your a kiddo, and the one restaurant, there is absolutely nothing else there to do. Beach is beautiful but when it rains, all you have are limited basic cable options and DVD's. Literally. 3. Very dated. No USB ports, dated coffee maker etc.. For what they charge especially calling it luxury there should be more luxurious furnishings. 4. Finally the little things.. no bedding for the sofa bed or Murphy bed, trash in the parking garage for days. Security posted in the lobby instead of more discreetly, having to ask for everything extra you need, trash bags towels etc. If they were asking $200 a night maybe, but slmost $400. Just be mindful, it's a pretty basic stay.

Hotel's Favourite
This place is wonderful! From the moment you walk into the lobby, it looks and smells clean and fresh. The unit we stayed in was so clean and the beds were very comfortable! We had ample supplies in our unit. The view of the beach and access to it is great! We even saw dolphins jumping out of the water! We ordered food from the restaurant on the premises and everything was great. I highly recommend the pizza. I am very picky about where my family and I stay when on vacation. This place ranks at the top of my list for cleanliness, great accomodations, and friendly service!

We stayed in an Oceanfront 1 Bedroom Suite, which was clean and fully equipped as expected. Great views and nice place to stay. Staff were all helpful if you needed anything. Our teen enjoyed the beach and pools and said this place was his favorite of the three we stayed at on our trip. We would definitely stay here again!

For the most part I still love this place..however the price is premium with no room service foe less than a 6 night stay. The Cypress Room service was terrible, way too many people standing around doing nothing. The door on our balcony wax so hard to open I was actually trapped on the balcony for 10 minutes waiting on my sons to open it. They struggled and they are all athletes. I would definitely go back but I hope they find the management team to bring this place back to excellence.

We loved Island Vista! It’s clean, beautiful, employees are so nice, good food and awesome outside area and pools. Beach isn’t too crowded since there isn’t another hotel on either side. Would definitely recommend!

We returned to Island Vista last week after trying this hotel for the first time last October, and this is now our home away from home at the beach. Everyone we encountered from the hotel staff was friendly and helpful. We had a couple of minor maintenance requests that were taken care of quickly, and Teli at the front desk went above and beyond to help with anything we needed. This hotel is clean, safe, and family friendly. We look forward to returning as soon as we can!

The Island Vista is truly an island of calm in the midst of the hurricane of activity that makes up the rest of Myrtle Beach. Our room was spacious and had a nice balcony with an ocean view.we ate at the Cypress Room for dinner and enjoyed the food as well as the outside dining. Great staff too!

First.... I was pleasantly surprised by the room! Definitely a view of the ocean but not face on... Which was a little sucky bc I had a corner room but it was ok.... Huge 1000 inch flat screen.. microwave.. refrigerator.. COMFORTABLE BEDS!!!! What!!!! And the bathroom!!!!! Nice! But with all that let me mention Ms Teli!!!! Front desk personnel.... Sooooo pleasant... Soooo professional... Soooooo knowledgeable.... Sooooo Sweet!!! Soooo aware.... I thought she was the front desk manager! She should be!!! She didn't check me in BUT I truly enjoyed listening to her check in others and take phone calls. I was blown away by her customer service and demeanor! Spot on!!!!! Managers... Owners... PLEASE acknowledge this young lady! She IS the front desk!!! Love her everything!!! ❤️ Stay here.. ask for Teli... And enjoy yourself!
