Me and five other friends stayed two nights on the 12th floor. The view was absolutely beautiful, The suite was clean as clean could be. House keeping was awesome we always were asked if we needed anything and the staff helped suggest places to go eat or things to do for fun. I loved the lazy river inside the resort.... More

If you want excellent beach access, excellent views, clean comfortable rooms, and a good deal, Island Vista is for you. Unlike many beachfront hotels in Myrtle Beach, Island Vista has indoor room access only, adding to the security of the facility. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and are relatively cheap for what you can get.

Shellie and Gail were lovely. Expedia lost our reservation and they were able to quickly fix the situation. We were given a fantastic penthouse suite with an ocean view. We enjoyed the hot tub both indoors and outdoors. They have a cool system for checking out towels by the pool. We would absolutely recommend this location to anyone.

My husband and I stayed in room 1100 October, 28-30th and it was great! The rooms are a great size and a great view. Affordable and great housekeeping. The room was excellent when we came back from our adventure. We will always choose island vista when we return.

We have been going to the Island Vista for a number of years and enjoyed our stay immensely. This year we were irked a little by the cleaning staff who did a semi adequate job but left extensive notes about enjoying our golf and god bless and have a great time every day. We found this a little much. Don't... More

Thank you for your review. We are beginning to realize that thoughts like “have a nice day” have begun to show the potential of having unintended effect, and have changed the policy for our housekeeping staff to prohibit such notes. We thank you for allowing those from the Baptist group into the Cypress Room ahead of yourselves, and we also... More

.....because though I really like it, they keep doing things that make me scratch my head. One example would be pricing. When we arrived we were quoted one price for a one week golf and accomodation package, but a few hours later we were told it was going to cost 75 percent more. Management was able to justify it and... More

Thank you for your review. We must apologize for the confusion at check-in… typically a golf vacation package is complete with a per-golfer package price that includes accommodations, daily breakfast, tax, greens and cart fees, and golfers’ gifts. The way it happens is the group leader contacts our Golf Director, indicates the components of the trip, the selected courses, times,... More
