We stayed 1/13 to 1/15/15 in room 262, with a direct view of the ocean. I wouldn't stay here unless I could see the ocean straight on….there are very few of these rooms. Isla Grand is very grand, but most rooms are side views of the ocean, and many have hardly a view at all. Our room was dated to... More

The lobby smells deliciously fresh and clean. Staff were pleasant and very accommodating. We stayed in a two bedroom condo in main building and enjoyed our space and use of kitchen. The rooms were very clean, as well as the grounds. We found the food at the Cafe to be superb and plentiful. We enjoyed Starbucks coffee in the morning... More

Mario, a server at the Isla Grande restaurant has always made my family's visit so enjoyable. Not only did he make frequent visits to our table to make sure we had what we wanted but he was a great conversationalist and listener. He made us feel like family and we continue to come often knowing we can count on him... More

What started out as a great escape turned into disappointment fairly quickly. The room was nice, had great views, but we were disappointed when we ordered room service (steaks) and our food was cold and there was no butter for the baked potatoes. There was not even a microwave to heat it up, and there was no coffee maker. Unfortunately,... More

We stayed at the Isla Grand over the Thanksgiving holiday. The weather was beautiful and the hotel was lovely. We had a great view on the 5th floor over looking the pool and ocean. The grounds are so well landscaped and at night the lighting by the pool mimics a volcano glowing. The staff were very friendly and each time... More

My wife and I, son, daughter-in-law, and two grandsons spent the Thanksgiving holiday at this lovely beach hotel. We had a GREAT time, and were very pleased to find the beaches almost empty, pools, hot tubs and restaurants not crowded, friendly service, and a great Thanksgiving buffet. First time in 35 years I didn't have to do dishes... we really... More

Waited a few days to post this to calm down. On December 7th we took another couple to the restaurant for the Sunday Brunch. How plain and canned could an entire buffet be? With the exception of the fresh fruit and the pancakes. Looks and tasted as though everything was from Sysco.(Could at least heat the canned stuff up) The... More
