Fodor's Expert Review Island Vista Resort

6000 N. Ocean Blvd., Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, 29577, USA

Nestled along the residential north end of the Strand, this resort has room to breathe, instead of being smack up against the clutter of hotels clogging the coastline farther south. There's plenty of room at every turn here, from the hotel-length oceanfront lanai, tiki bar, and cavernous indoor pools to the roomy guest suites and high-end Cypress Room restaurant.

PROS

  • free on-site kids activities
  • room furnishings are tastefully tropical, not tacky
  • less crowded beach area than its peers

CONS

  • you'll need a car to reach the boardwalk
  • there's less to do within walking distance than at other resorts
  • restaurant hours limited during winter
