We spent a great weekend at the Isla Grand Beach. The best part about this resort is being able to have the patio slider open and hearing the ocean, and being only a few feet from the beach. Great place, great local restaurants.

My wife and I stayed at the Isla Grand over a few days in February. The room wasn't in the best shape, but there wasn't anything overly concerning, just worn out a bit. The bed was excellent. The resort grounds are absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed the heated pool and hot tubs, but it was too cool to swim in the... More

I was at Isla Grand recently for a conference. The location is excellent, very hard to beat. The front desk folks were very efficient and helpful. The room was nice, but nothing fancy. I imagine they get a lot of wear and tear between the Spring Break/Summer crowds and the challenge of being a hotel on the beach. I will... More

The resort it self was great. The room was the bad part. Bed was old and had a strange odor. we first had a room with a broken tv and aN unclean shower with hair clung to the wall. We then asked for a new room and we're furnished quickly. It was very good customer service. The pool and hot... More

Glad I stayed in 232 for only one night. The room smelled old and moldy. Dirty Curtain, damaged wall, black stuff on the mirror trim, the tub looked nasty. I really hated to have to touch anything. Nice view.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom condo. The floor plan was perfect and the view off the two balconies was great. The decor was very up to date and the kitchen/dining area was great for 4 adults. We will definitely return to the Isla Grand Beach Resort..

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

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.

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
