Isla Grand Beach Resort Reviews

“Excellent resort”

This was our first trip to SPI from Minnesota. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Isla Grand. It has a nice laid-back comfortable feel. The pools were great. The two outdoor hot tubs were greater. And the food at the onsite restaurant was very good and reasonably priced. We would definitely stay here again.

“Love the Starbucks! Only one on the island”

Literally went for the Starbucks! You cannot find a good cup of coffee on the island UNLESS you go to La Copa! Full Starbucks with full menu. Foamy cappuccinos, great lattes, and frappucinos. I could not have survived – it is the only Starbucks for over 50 miles!

“Grand, indeed!”

Excellent views of the ocean and it’s only a couple of minutes before your feet are wet, either in the ocean or in the pool as seen in the photo! The restaurant in the hotel was the BEST “hotel restaurant” we have ever dined in! The ONLY reason I could never give a + sign on his other-wise “A” hotel…

“Outstanding visit as usual”

We live near Isla Grand and usually get 2 bedroom condos for our friends and families visiting us. We love the hotel immensely and the views are always stunning. Fabulous hotel offering many options with the breath taking views.

“AMAZING stay at this hotel!!!!”

I was here for a family reunion and the hotel was AMAZING! The front desk was extremely helpful and patient with all our needs. I was able to try the buffet which was delicious and satisfying. My over all stay was delightful. The beautiful parrots at the entrance were also one of my favorite things to see.

“Family Reunion Fun!”

From the moment we walked into the Isla Grand, the front desk staff was very welcoming and helpful! The front office managers were willing to accommodate all of our needs and were very efficient! We also enjoyed the delicious buffet right at the hotel. We would definitely recommend our family and friends to stay here as we will be returning…

“Seminar trip”

We have been going to this hotel for many years in the fall for a legal seminar. We absolutely love it. It is so close to the beach and now they have built a wooden path over the sand to the beach which makes it easier to get there. All of the staff at the hotel are friendly and helpful….

“my favorite place to stay”

It has everything: wonderful restaurant, fun bar, relaxing pools, beautiful views and the staff is always willing to accommodate. And the big plus is I can take my dog!! I have stayed here for business and pleasure trips. It is walking distance to great restarants and to slitterbaughn.

“Great Resort”

We had a fantastic time. .we are planning for another visit, but longer. .on this stay, we chose a pool and garden view room. ..we really enjoyed the convenience of going from parking lot to room..from room to pool, restaurant, outdoor bar, and beach…

“Isla is Grand”

Great service, clean room, fun atmosphere. Great eating and bar choices. 2 pools and the beach. Food was excellent, however buffet had some cold food, but when the waiter was alerted he took care of the situation. Went in September. Very quiet during the week. Excellent accommodations for all types of people using the resort. From children to teens to…

“South Texas Fire Investigators Association”

Friendliest staff ever. Everyone is willing to help every step of the way. Beautiful resort with beach access, great food and drinks. Make time to stop and see the crab races and enjoy the pools. Thank you Pat, Shirley and Edward and all your great staff.

“Bucket List visit to South Padre”

Isla Grand Beach Resort is a perfect location for a October/November vacation on South Padre. Excellent condo hotel right on the beach with 2 beautiful swimming pools, one heated and one not. Lounges at the pool were probably the most comfortable of any at the various hotels we have visited over the past 45 years. Very convenient to have a…

“This place is awesome!!!!”

We went for a family weekend and it was all we were expecting it to be!! The room was a bit too small for 3 people and perhaps too humid. But forget that, you are spitting distance from the Gulf and it just beats everything else hands down!!!! Absolutely outstanding beach with very clear and warm water, 2 pools, tennis…


Martha is the greatest food server ever. Beautiful place. Great food Great Service. The beach is an undiscovered gem. Pool service great. We went for a family weekend and it was wonderful. I recommend this place to anyone, especially at the restaurant with Martha.

“Thanks Martha”

Great coffee and service at Windjammer Restaurant. Martha always takes such good care of us. Entire resort is clean, well maintained, and everyone who works there is so nice and welcoming. We love Isla Grand!

“Isla Grand review”

I loved the stay. Housekeeping did not refresh the shampoos everyday, and I asked for another bag for the ice bucket and they said they didn’t have one. I also think having a one cup coffee maker would be nice. My tub seemed a little dirty but it may have just been older. All that being said I would definitely…

“I will be back”

This hotel is absolutely amazing. From the front desk to the restaurant, to the bar, to the pool. My roommate and I had an amazing four day weekend getaway. The rooms needed a bit updating but the staff was so polite and respectful. They understand what the definition of customer service means. I will definitely recommend this place to family…

“Great access to all the island”

Rooms were clean and comfortable. We stayed in a condo that had a balcony and could hear the band at night. Close enough to walk to some good restaurants. Covered parking also available. Bars located by the pool area.

“Best option for the money”

Booked a room for 3 nights. Room was clean no bad smell. Was able to get lower floor with pool view. And just seconds from the beach. Decent food and entertainmemt. Being able to catch the sunrise on the beach was awesome
