We go to Island Vista every year and can't wait to get back. Our family get's multiple suites - a three bedroom for me, my husband, son (15) and daughter (16); and a three bedroom for my sister, her husband and two boys (ages 7 and 8) and our parents (over 70). So here's what I love, there is something...

We stayed at the Island Vista for a week in June. We booked through the hotel rather than VRBO, which would have been much cheaper, because we could not book Saturday to Saturday due to our schedules. So, I knew going into it that we were paying twice as much as some others. When we arrived, the front desk was...

Thank you for your review and for your kind comments. I am not actually familiar with rates offered through VRBO and I suppose they depend on the individual owner. As a guest of the Island Vista, there are many things available for your pleasure and convenience… the 24-hour services at our front desk, complimentary newspapers, bellman service, pool towel service,...

Let's first say that I was more than skeptical to try a new hotel. It takes a lot to meet my expectations and to make me happy and this hotel did just that! It actually exceeded my expectations. We visited this hotel from July 7 - 12. Check in was a little delayed by 20 minutes but I'd rather the...

Overall it's s nice place..but clearly lacking in some areas. Front desk staff are very nice but don't have a clue if you ask them anything. The restaurant in the hotel has very decent to excellent food but closes at 10? Last seating at 8:30? Bar is closed at 11:00? The room service seems is a bit weird also..ordered breakfast...

The three bedroom unit was spacious & very comfortable. Coffee in the morning on the porch overlooking the beach was-very relaxing. The indoor pool with the tube rides was fun & gave the granddaughter a place to play when it rained. The food in the restaurant was delicious. Housekeeping kept the unit very clean. If we vacation again-we will definitely...

We've been vacationing in the Myrtle Beach area for decades. A friend recommended Island Vista, and we decided to give it a try since our mom is now in a wheelchair. We liked everything about this place and we WILL BE returning. They were very accommodating with our special needs. They had a shower chair and an eleveated toilet seat...

We are currently staying at the Island Vista resort. We have a large family, so vacations are always difficult to organize and we do loads of reseach before we book.
