I recently had one of the best dinners of my life at Windjammers inside the isla grand. The food was some of the best I had ever eaten, and the staff was very nice! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone near the SPI location. Try the buffet it was great!

We sat outside and it overlooks the pool as well as the beach. We ordered sides for our meal and they were really good and the food came quickly. The hotel looks really nice and the pool area is stunning with the colored lights once it starts getting dark.

Great service with good food. We love setting over the pool area in the mornings. The staff was some of the friendliest I have had the pleasure to be around.

Windjammer was our favorite restaurant on the island. It has a beautiful view of the outside grounds and the Ocean in the distance. The ambiance is great the service was excellent. They made my favorite drink which they weren't familiar with. The food was well presented and excellent. You won't go wrong here.

It has great food and live entertainment. Sitting outside near the pool and looking out at the beach is also a big plus!

I enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant, it overlooks the pool and all the palm trees on the property. The service was as good as I have gotten on the island and that's what really made this place special. The food was good as well, but nothing too special.

Food is great and fairly reasonable but watch out for beverage prices, OJ, tea, etc. Way overpriced.

We went for breakfast before heading to the beach at around 8:30 and the noise from the vacuum cleaner generally killed what was a great view. The waitress took our food order and disappeared without asking what we wanted to drink. She came back by several minutes later and we were able to flag her down for some orange juice... More

We arrived late. There were four adults and two kids. We waited a short time for our table. They escorted us to a table and gave us four adult menus. They quickly gave us water. There was no view from our table. We had to ask for children's menus. They were very slow to take our order. The bread and... More
