My husband and I just came back or rather were forced to leave the Island Vista due to a oncoming hurricane. Although the skies were beautiful at the beach. Anyway the Island Vista was not what I am use to when it comes to resorts at the beach. THE ROOM: Our view of the ocean was beautiful. The Island Vista is located in a residential area. Surrounded by homes. Very odd. The inside of the room however is pretty sad. The bathroom was terrible. The walls were painted yellow but had cuts on them-major cuts and paint was peeling everywhere. The air condition unit was so loud you could barely sleep at night. The room itself was tiny. Their advertisement said they had an indoor pool that was heated and an outdoor pool and saunas. The indoor pool and the outdoor pool were so very small. The saunas which we used were not even turned on. We also tried the lazy river which absolutely no current. Probably would not stay here again unless I could not find any where else to stay.

Room Tip: In a residential area

Thank you for your review. We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced in having to leave early. The governor’s mandatory evacuation was a necessary precaution, but we were so fortunate here in Myrtle Beach to have had the storm pass to the north of us. The north side of the eye is the damaging side and as such, we had very little issue… the original storm surge prediction turned out to be minimal and even the dunes are intact.

We are definitely in a unique location in the middle of a mile of residential community, perhaps the only circumstance like that along the Grand Strand. Many travelers like to be right in the middle of everything, but we find that many others prefer our quiet neighborhood and beach. This is the time of the year when we inspect and renew every accommodation after the busy summer season… we have yet to find conditions like those you described, but if we do they will be addressed immediately. It sounds as if you might have preferred a larger unit. Our suites are available in all sizes all the way up to about 2,500 sq. ft. Because we are located in the residential area, it is a different perspective, but our property is actually the size of a city block, and our swimming pools traverse the entire oceanfront deck.

Thank you for your patience in dealing with the mandatory evacuation, and thank you for choosing the Island Vista as your host in Myrtle Beach. We hope to see you again soon!

We just stayed 6 nights at the Island Vista. The hotel was amazing! The staff is nice and the housekeeping did an awesome job! The rooms is really good, spacious and the view is perfect! I woke up early a couple days just to watch the sunrise! For sure we're going back!!!

This is by far one of the nicest places we’ve stayed. Mark, Steve and staff are wonderful people and make us feel so welcome every year. We’ve started coming twice a year to enjoy this resort. The views are spectacular and the rooms are clean. Becky from Housekeeping was wonderful this year! We will be asking to stay on her floor the next trip. All staff was most accommodating and enjoyable. Really makes us feel like we’re coming home. Island Vista is highly recommended for anyone that wants to relax and enjoy themselves to stay here.

This place has so many features to make your vacation enjoyable, why would you stay anyplace else? The suites are clean, quite and spacious with full kitchen, washer dryer, balcony. The in resort restaurant has very good food. Lots of free extras, such as movies, parking, wi-fi and pool towels (get them early, they run out fast). The staff was very helpful, inviting and pleasant. Private beach is clean and well maintained. Everything was perfect.

We stayed in a one bedroom condo. The room was immaculately clean, and perfectly styled. I've been coming to Myrtle Beach for over 20 years straight, and this hotel, by far, gave me the best experience of all.
The staff was amazing! Everyone from the receptionists to the maintenance men were all super nice, and always said hello when we passed them in the hallways.
We enjoyed the live music and the pools were very clean and plentiful.

We will be back next summer! Please don't let anything change because I've been looking for a consistent and comfortable place to stay for too long!
