Entry and parking obstacle course

Posted Sep 6, 2014
Who would design a hotel with temporary park/unload on ground level, checkin/lobby on 2nd level and parking garage across the street (uncovered route rain or shine)??? Housekeeping knocked on door both mornings we were there in spite of do not disturb sign.

Good resort, great location

Posted Sep 4, 2014
Pros: Location. Amenities.
Cons: Certain staff.
Check in staff, housekeeping and bartenders were good. Had a terrible last night when another guest on our floor was pounding and yelling on his door at 1:30 am and again at 4:45 am. Complained to front desk and she giggled and said that security had to deal with him. Obviously they didn't otherwise I would have been able to sleep. It was a good reason to get up early and leave. Overall, great experience except noisy neighbour and useless staff around pool and parking area. They did absolutely nothing which wasn't a great feeling upon arriving. Would still go back again though despite their poor service.

Nice hotel right on the ocean

Posted Aug 30, 2014
We rented a 1 bedroom condo oceanfront. Our room was nice and clean and the beach was not too crowded. The staff was friendly and willing to help if needed. It was a relaxing vacation for sure. The only downside is that it is about a half hour from Myrtle Beach, which is where most of the things to do are. But if you're looking for a quieter, less busy getaway I would definitely recommend Avista!

Nice hotel on the beach

Posted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: The room set up. The bedroom was placed in the back of the condo.
Cons: Build at least one large pool and add restrooms at the pool level.
Location: Location was great. Lots to do with the pavilion, shopping, and golf.
It is a nice hotel on the beach with a good location. The room size and set up was good. The hotel is large and proclaimed five pools in it's ad. They do have the five pools but they are all small for the size of the hotel. Compound that with the fact that they do not have restroom facilities on the pool level and there was no way that I was going to get in them.

Small and Dirty

Posted Jul 2, 2014
Pros: Checkout
Cons: Tear is down and rebuild it
Room was small and dirty. Hallways and elevators had no air conditioning and dirty. We left a day early just to get out of the filth. Parking for check in and out is a joke. Took an hour

Family vacation with adult children and grands.

Posted Jun 28, 2014
Pros: OCEAN FRONT LOCATION. Clean condo's. Lazy River and Pools.
Cons: Maid service earlier in the day.
Location: OCEAN FRONT LOCATION....close to good food, entertainment, and shopping.
We love the resort and plan to use it again next year. Comfortable, with good activities for all ages. Love the ocean front site. The only neggie; a few days the maid service was very late.
