Island Vista Dining
Our take on Southern hospitality – you’ll never have to leave the resort! Our award winning Chef Mike McKinnon invites you to experience world class cuisine created to satisfy the most discerning palate. From citrus-encrusted grouper to our own handmade dressings, sauces, and desserts, you’ll remember this dining experience. For lighter tastes and times, there’s in-room pizza delivery (made fast and fresh on site) and the poolside Tiki Bar for lunch and frosty pool side beverages seasonally. The Cypress Room Cocktail lounge opens for happy hour at 4 pm! Be sure to experience our award-winning Cypress Room restaurant for an outstanding southern breakfast and family-friendly dinner. Island Vista is proud to offer several on-site dining options to appease any palate.
Our plans for children include BIG fun! We believe children deserve the same customized courtesies we extend to their parents. Our world-class supervised Kids Club offers unlimited entertainment and activities, from face painting and scavenger hunts to pool games and beach activities. Fun time for the kids and worry-free relaxation for the parents!
Our activities directors are experienced Elementary Education professionals and student interns, and they know what’s FUN! From tossing water-balloons to finding that elusive shark’s tooth treasure… our Children’s Activities provide a great way for kids to meet other kids and for parents to have little time for themselves.
When it comes to water and all the ways to enjoy it, we’ve got you covered. Inside and out, you’ll find an aquatic playground perfectly suited for both kids and adults– outside are two pools and a hot tub, and inside, our waterpark includes a lazy river, waterfall, another hot tub and kids splash area with an Ancient Ruins atmosphere. And, of course, no one can forget our secluded stretch of pristine, quiet beach – a rarity on the Grand Strand.
