Two of my girlfriends and I recently visited South Padre Island for a girls trip and had a first class experience at this hotel! We were treated like queens and can personally thank Alfonso, the manager, for upgrading our room to beach view for absolutely free! Wonderful customer service and I would go back in a heartbeat. The girls and... More

Although I am big on reading reviews, I am not one to write one good or bad, however, I feel it is only fair to let anyone who may be interested in staying on South Padre Island know that The Isla Grand is an amazing Resort. We have been taking a family trip every summer to SPI and once again... More

The staff was very attentive and went out of the way to make sure our stay was pleasurable. When we had an issue it was addressed quickly. No internet in the room the whole stay was the only problem we basically had. I would recommend bringing Febreez for the musty smell because it is a beachside resort and the smell... More

Thank you Wendy K. for your nice comments. We are happy to know you and your family left very happy. Anything we can do to make your stay a wonderful experience, you can be assured that we will.

The staff and management were excellent and extremely professional. Augustine Rodriguez did an a outstanding job ensuring a memorable experience for our class reunion. I would recommend this resort to anyone wanting to celebrate any special event. It was awesome!

I was very disappointed about this hotel. I saw a lot of great review on this hotel so that is why I picked it and thinking how much money I had to pay for the rooms I figure it was worth it, well I was wrong I will not be back again. First when we got to the hotel they... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. The Hotel offers two types of beds in our cabanas (kings and double/double). We are also currently in the process of upgrading our cabanas to central a/c and new beds. We are happy to hear you enjoyed our location to the beach and glad you like our food! Sincerely, Daniel...

We enjoyed our stay. The rooms were not updated, but if you have traveled to many beach area hotels/resorts you understand that is average. We spent most of our time at the pool/pool bar area. It was relaxing and we soaked up many rays of sun. You can enjoy a perfect breakfast omelette at the resort restaurant. They have hammocks... More

My wife and I just returned from a three night stay at Isla Grand. The property is nice but very dated. We stayed in a beach front cabana which afforded easy access to the beach. The first morning we notified the office that the toilet wasn't working properly, the following day someone came out and made it better but still... More

And Isla Grande was a good enough spot for a meeting. The meeting room was good, and the catering was fresh and filling. After the meetings, our cabana was located mere steps from the pool and beach. We had a private deck with a view of the gulf and some of Texas's finest beach front. The village is funny and... More

Thanks for offering up all this feedback about your recent visit here. We understand how frustrating it must have been to be without a strong Internet connection, and know how inconvenient it is as well. We had s main router go out and had no way of getting it repaired without the necessary parts, which took longer than expected to... More

I've stayed at this hotel several times while in SPI. Location is great! The pool is beautiful and the beach access is also perfect. You can rent chairs and umbrellas for about $30 for the day (until 6pm). The hotel grounds are well maintained. The hotel rooms are nothing to write home about but if you're at the beach, then...

We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us! It's great to hear that you had easy access to the beach and enjoyed renting a chair. As for our cooler policy, we cannot allow outside drinks in this area because of the type of liquor lisence we hold. We hope to see you again next time you're in town! Best, Daniel... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We value you opinion and will address your concerns with each department. The dunes are a big part of our beach by providing protection against coastal flooding and the vegetation that is growing is natural and helps in this preservation. We are glad you enjoyed yourself at the pool and... More
