Mar Vista Grande

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel was nice but not much staff so checking in was weird. We got there around 8:30 pm and the office was closed. I finally noticed a sign that gave me instructions on how to obtain my key. Very small swimming pools. Good value for the price.

Rented 3 bath, 3 bedroom unit. Unit was huge. Furnishings need to be updated. Front desk closes early so if you have an after hours need, you're out of luck! No maid service. Pools are nice.

Beautiful 3bed 3 bath condo, steps to beach. Great location. Friendly staff.

We had a little difficulty figuring out how to get into the building but once we figured that out all was good. We called about extra TP and were told this was not a Holiday Inn. We knew that but still didn't know how to get it. So they assume a lot and don't provide much information to their guests - but still a great experience!

The room was great. Nicely furnished and very roomy. The pool area is small and was very crowded. Trying to get an elevator at times was difficult. Only 4 elevators for the whole resort. Waited 25 minutes to get an elevator to check out because every time one came it was full. There wasn't any house keeping. You have to wash your sheets and bed linens everyday and take out your own trash to the trash shoot. The hotel does provide laundry detergent and trash bags if you go to the front desk and ask.

Great location right on beach with a variety of swimming pools available for all ages. Rooms were spacious and were well equipped for family activities. Hotel personnel were friendly , helpful and courtesy. Highly recommend!

Mar Vista Grande was a beautiful resort with nice sized pools and one of the cleanest beaches we have seen. Check-in went smoothly and our room was fabulous--except from the housekeeping standpoint. We had a three bedroom, three bathroom unit and it was very spacious. However, it was dusty, had dirty floors--black feet = eeewww!--no toilet paper in two bathrooms, no wash cloths, food wrappers under beds and dirty glasses in TV cabinet. Our second day, we were suppose to receive towel exchange and trash removal but they didn't come. We were also locked out of our room because our keys were programmed with an incorrect checkout date. On day three, we received towels but no wash cloths. We were told the linen truck didn't come. (???) On day four, we received only four wash cloths (for a unit that accommodates 10.) Finally on day five, we received more. On the last day, our microwave quit working. The pools and hot tubs were always full of sand. (Yes, it's beachfront property but this was excessive.) Unlike most resorts of this caliber, food and drink were allowed in and around pools. Kids used the lazy river as pool and nothing was said by staff despite complaints from multiple guests. Kids Club was the only bonus. Ms. Nancy was good with the kids, made great crafts, and our daughter loved it. Overall, this resort doesn't meet the four diamond standards like others we have visited. It could but housekeeping needs to kick it up several notches and the staff needs to make an effort to care. We weren't even asked how our stay was when we checked out.

Will definitely return! What a great deal! Beautiful beach, nice pools. Staff is great!

Everything about this hotel was absolutely GREAT!!!! We loved the beach as well as the pools. The location was perfect for us! The room was fantastic with a remarkable view! The Mar Vista is where we will be returning to the next time we vacation in Myrtle Beach!

Beautiful,luxury and very clean condominium with a great kitchen and balcony,perfect place with family, but this hotel needs at least 1 Resturant or cafe and small store for necessary things!!The mini bar at the pool had just alcoholic beverages!!!and there is no bathroom around the pool area!There is no receptionist at night!

This hotel was very spacious! Location was very convient to various places. Customer Service at this hotel was excellent! Pools and lazy rivers were not crowded - great beach access! Really loved this hotel! Received massage at hotel it was AWESOME!!!
