The wife and I love Myrtle Beach, and last 3 trips we stayed at the Ocean Reef, a sister hotel to Island Vista. This year, we wanted to stay at a place "a cut above" a standard hotel. Island Vista did not disappoint, though you do pay extra to stay here. We rented a 1 Bedroom Oceanfront Suite, with full...

This was our second family vacation in Myrtle Beach, but our first time staying at Island Vista. With three families vacationing together, we booked a 3 bedroom/3 bathroom oceanfront room. The suite met our expectations as it was clean and had a well stocked kitchen. I was concerned after reading some reviews of hard beds and pillows, but we were...

This is the place I always stay now when I come to Myrtle Beach Spacious, clean , friendly staff at check in and a wonderful maid service. I have stayed at many places on the beach but this is the absolute best....It is pricey but so nice to be in a quiet and upscale condo.

Nice place, not quite a resort as it purports to be, but more of a resort/hi-rise condo hybrid. For the most part it works though. Location is terrific and beach beautiful. All rooms have a great ocean front view and only disappointment there is that main bedroom windows facing ocean do not open. Fantastic set of pools and hot tubs...

On my visit to Myrtle Beach, we stayed at a beautiful family OV resort, that housed one of the best restaurant on the planet.

This is the first time I was in Myrtle Beach and really loved it, mostly because of the hotel. This vacation was planned late for labor day weekend. We were able to get a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 3 tvs, suite. The parking garage was tight, but we were able to get a spot. When we arrived our room wasn't...

This hotel doesn't quite live up to its stars. We stayed from Sunday, August 27 through Friday, August 31. I made reservations at least 3 months prior to arrival.

Thank you for your recent review… this is invaluable in helping us to recognize areas that need attention. While we always prefer to read about good experiences, it does help us to know when a guest’s expectations are not met. A principle complaint seems to be with regard to the menu availability in the room and in-room delivery. Your review...
