For the most part I still love this place..however the price is premium with no room service foe less than a 6 night stay. The Cypress Room service was terrible, way too many people standing around doing nothing. The door on our balcony wax so hard to open I was actually trapped on the balcony for 10 minutes waiting on my sons to open it. They struggled and they are all athletes. I would definitely go back but I hope they find the management team to bring this place back to excellence.
This place is wonderful! From the moment you walk into the lobby, it looks and smells clean and fresh. The unit we stayed in was so clean and the beds were very comfortable! We had ample supplies in our unit. The view of the beach and access to it is great! We even saw dolphins jumping out of the water! We ordered food from the restaurant on the premises and everything was great. I highly recommend the pizza. I am very picky about where my family and I stay when on vacation. This place ranks at the top of my list for cleanliness, great accomodations, and friendly service!
We just left Island Vista after another fabulous vacation! We love this resort! You will not find a better staff anywhere else! The rooms are amazing and very clean! The beach is never crowded! We look forward to many years to come at Island Vista!
We loved Island Vista! It’s clean, beautiful, employees are so nice, good food and awesome outside area and pools. Beach isn’t too crowded since there isn’t another hotel on either side. Would definitely recommend!
We returned to Island Vista last week after trying this hotel for the first time last October, and this is now our home away from home at the beach. Everyone we encountered from the hotel staff was friendly and helpful. We had a couple of minor maintenance requests that were taken care of quickly, and Teli at the front desk went above and beyond to help with anything we needed. This hotel is clean, safe, and family friendly. We look forward to returning as soon as we can!
The Island Vista is truly an island of calm in the midst of the hurricane of activity that makes up the rest of Myrtle Beach. Our room was spacious and had a nice balcony with an ocean view.we ate at the Cypress Room for dinner and enjoyed the food as well as the outside dining. Great staff too!
Great place to stay friendly staff never have had a bad experience here The food in the Cypress room is great just had breakfast there Jami gave us great service .. what more could you ask for? Great food and a great place to stay
First.... I was pleasantly surprised by the room! Definitely a view of the ocean but not face on... Which was a little sucky bc I had a corner room but it was ok.... Huge 1000 inch flat screen.. microwave.. refrigerator.. COMFORTABLE BEDS!!!! What!!!! And the bathroom!!!!! Nice! But with all that let me mention Ms Teli!!!! Front desk personnel.... Sooooo pleasant... Soooo professional... Soooooo knowledgeable.... Sooooo Sweet!!! Soooo aware.... I thought she was the front desk manager! She should be!!! She didn't check me in BUT I truly enjoyed listening to her check in others and take phone calls. I was blown away by her customer service and demeanor! Spot on!!!!! Managers... Owners... PLEASE acknowledge this young lady! She IS the front desk!!! Love her everything!!! ❤️ Stay here.. ask for Teli... And enjoy yourself!…
Had an amazing stay overall. Stayed with my wife in may 2022. The property is beautiful, staff was friendly and helpful, food and drinks were great. The only thing we didn't like was the parking situation. The parking garage was not at all fun to navigate, very narrow and parking spots were all different sizes and cement barriers in random spots. It wasnt too bad when we visited since it wasn't quite peak season. But I imagine it gets a little tricky when you have more people coming and going. A valet option would have been very nice and made this much less of an issue. Other than that this place is fantastic! You have an amazing view of the ocean from the balcony and even while you are at the pool. And if you would rather just lay on the beach it is located right on a beautiful stretch of beach that is a lot less crowded than a typical hotel beach. The property is located in a more residential area which makes for a much quieter experience. Hotel was very clean found no issues there, seemed like a safe area as well. They had security pretty regularly walking the property. Wasn't sure but security seemed to have an actual firearm which I found a bit odd for such a quiet area. Food and drinks from the restaurant and tiki bar were good and service was fast. The pools were very spacious, but they are very strict about pool closing times as they mentioned on their website. …
I thrive on efficiency. I was not disappointed. One minor issue, not uncommon, was cared for immediately. The only disappointment was having to leave this quiet and relaxing environment to return to the "hustle and bustle" of daily life back home. Must give a nice shout out to Lisa Prokowich, Assist Guest Services Mgr.: She was professional, warm, courteous, and attentive. Felt her sincerity for the property's guests! The general, restaurant, and maintenance staff were all a full complement to the property.
