“Great for the ocean, could use a few improvements”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

The Avista is a great place to spend time in North Myrtle Beach. It is located on the ocean in a great stretch of beach. The resort is fairly new and is well maintained. Two things about the Avista stand out to me:

1) The pools, hot tubs, etc....are nice. However, there is NOT a large swimming pool and not enough pools for the number of guests in the resort. Thus, the available pools are crowded.
2) The parking garage is located across the street and there is not a sky walk. Thus, every time you need to go to your vehicle, you are playing frogger. A resort of this size needs a skywalk. Period.

The rooms are nice, the view is wonderful, the price is competitive. We are returning to the Avista in July.

Room Tip: Check in time is "guaranteed" for 4 p.m. However, we did not get our keys until 4:30.

The pool indoors was warm but the chemical smell was overpowering. Love that it was right on the beach - we were there on an exchange with a timeshare deal & they put us up here. The room was PERFECT! There was a hide-a-bed and a murphy bed, in addition to, two queens in the bedroom. Everything was what we needed for our family, especially the ocean view! The maid did towel animals that reminded us of being on a cruise - nice touches all around!

Room Tip: We were on the side of the building so we had noise from the street but the ocean sound usually cove...

Our family stayed at Avista for Spring Break (3/31-4/06). There are so many resorts to choose from, but I settled on Avista not only because of the reviews and pictures, but when I called to ask about the resort (and I called several times) each person was very helpful and very nice. Upon checking in, my family and I were pleased...AND our room was on the 17th floor! Gorgeous view!! We stayed in a 2 BR 2 BATH and it was perfect for the four of us. There were two grocery stores close by on Main St so we could stock the kitchen with little snack foods and quick breakfast items. The room had a washer and dryer, which we used daily for swimsuits and towels. Housekeeping came daily and we never had an issue. The kids LOVED the inside pools. We learned to go at 8am when the pool opened to avoid the crowds. The only negative thing I would say was the 20 minute parking area to unload. It’s a bit confusing at first, especially if you have never been there before. There are only a handful of parking spots in the garage underneath the hotel. This is where you are supposed to pull in and unload. During Spring Break, this was nearly impossible to do with all of the cars that were steadily arriving. Also, you had some cars that just parked and stayed for hours. The actual overnight parking is in the garage across the street. The garage has really tight corners to maneuver around, so be careful. Other than that, everything was great, and my family and I will definitely be back soon!

Room Tip: If you want to see the sun rise, choose an ocean front room in the SOUTH tower. Also, if you dont li...
