All our family met and had a great time at Isla Grand. We enjoyed the beach, pool, restaurant and bar. Excellent customer service. General Manager Daniel Salazar was extremely hospitable. They have brand new sleep number beds that were so awesome! Can't wait to go back in October!

We stayed at Isla grand 2 nights late August 2015. We came around 3pm, and they had few cabana rooms ready for check-in before the regular 4pm check in time. Cons first: Front desk staff was not inviting and not sure the exact word, may be detached, not-excited!! If you are thinking of renting at Isla with family, beware that... More
