This place was right on the beach. It had a great pool, tennis courts, and volley ball courts to have a great time. Housekeeping was also geat and cleaned the room very nice when we stayed there. However, the pool was a little dirty the 2nd day but soon they cleaned it up. It was a nice hotel on the beach. The bartender Rafeal was also very nice and attended our needs at the poolside bar. If you are expecting something like 5 start, this is not the place for you. Try looking some place diffeent.

We have been back two times since my last review. We still love this place. The food is great at the Windjammer along with the view of the beach. We enjoy dancing to the live music at the Quarterdeck. David Gracia makes our stay very relaxing. The entire staff are always very kind and helpful. Days are spent at the beach or pool area, and we always enjoy drinks and our visit with Rick and Rafael at the Whiskey Shak. This year our room had been remodeled and it was very nice. Its just a great place to relax and enjoy great food and entertainment.

OoThis was our second stay at this hotel. Last year we stayed in one of the cabana rooms and didn't really like it but we noticed that the tower rooms were much newer so we tried that out this year. Our room had two bedrooms, two restrooms, living room, full sized kitchen (with microwave, toaster, dishes, cookware), flat screen TV in the living room, and an incredible view of the beach. We were very happy with the room that we got but about 20 minutes after we arrived, we noticed that there were ants in one of the bedrooms and the hallway. We called the hotel staff and they quickly offered to move us to another room. This room was great as well but one of the toilets stopped working the first night we were there. The maintenance worker came in to fix it the next morning but told us that he would not be able to fix it quickly so were offered another room. The third room we got was amazing! It was much more spacious, very modern, clean, had flat screen TVs in each of the bedrooms, and the balcony wrapped around the side so we had a view of the bay as well as the ocean. THIS room was definitely worth the money that we paid. However, having to move twice was really irritating when we were supposed to be on vacation. Hotel staff should have been more aware of the ant problem in the first place. The pools are pretty nice. There was strong winds the day we arrived so there was debris in the pool but I saw staff cleaning the pool as soon as the wind died down. There is direct beach access from the hotel which is very nice. I would definitely recommend this place to others but would encourage you to ask hotel staff to inspect the room with you when you check in.

Right on the beach, nice size room, good service, good food , great live music in the bar. Pool was not kept as clean as it should have been--we reported twice that the skimmer wasn't even turned on, but it was never corrected. Serious mosquito problem, but the resort can't be held responsible. Will definitely return.

Room stinks like a cheap hotel. Furniture broken and beat down like a crack house. Amenities, none! Why put a sink and kitchenette in the room with no coffee pot or a microwave. Waste! I can't think of one positive thing to say and I'm here for my 41st anniversary. Thought we were going somewhere nice.

Room Tip: Don't.

Just got back from a girls get-a-way to South Padre Island. We stayed at Isla Grand Beach Resort and it was perfect. Absolutely beautiful! We stayed in room 108 which was right across from the pool area, yet had an ocean view too. The room was roomy enough for three ladies and all of our stuff! There would have been room for 4 also, Let me tell you, the pool area was beautiful! We enjoyed many of hours out at the pool and by the beach. The beach access was extremely nice. The hotel keeps their beach area super clean! The hotel offered everything we could have asked for. Pool side bar, pool side grill (hamburgers were the best!), nice dining restaurant (everything we ate was good and the view is breath taking), pub that offered Monday night football with taco bar (which was very good) and live entertainment every night. The band that was playing while we were there was called Passion and they were great! Good dancing going on...
All the staff was wonderful! Everyone was nice and friendly and you could tell they enjoyed being there. We were all impressed by the security staff they had too, always felt secure and safe.
While we were there we checked out some other hotels and we found they either had small pool areas or they had a long haul to the beach.
I just cannot say enough good about this place. We will definitely be back and I highly recommend Isla Grand to anyone looking for that perfect place to stay, play, rest or eat.
Oh two things in regards to previous reviews. While we were there they were upgrading their internet access. Never had a problem, in our room, out by the pool or in the restaurants. The second thing they do not have coffee makers in the room. I took care of that by stopping by the dollar store and purchased one for $12.00 (problems solved!).
I am not adding any pictures because what you see on their website is exactly what you get and more.
Last thing.. I have always been a Texas Coast Snob! I have been going to Destin and the Panama City beaches for 40+ years! SPI beaches were beautiful, I was pleasantly surprised and because it is quick trip from Dallas, I will be back and the only place I will be staying is here!

Room Tip: Stayed in room 108. Great location to pool, beach and hotel lobby, restaurants etc. Great View.

Some friends and I planned a girls weekend and were so excited to stay at this resort. We checked the pics of the hotel online, and it looked beautiful it was right on the beach and seemed to be a true tropical paradise. What we got instead was a poorly maintained hotel. We got to the hotel after having driven 6 hours and were sadly disappointed. When we arrived to the room it smelled as if though it had been closed up and not opened for a long period time. The floor was sandy, the A/C unit was full of dirt and spider webs. We were not able to shut the curtains because the track they were hooked on were broken. The curtains themselves were stained with mold, and were fraying at the edges. This was just the first impression. Once we put our luggage down we noticed that the walls were all scuffed up as if though the furniture had been moved around and scraped the walls. The beds were sleep number beds but did not function. The ice bucket's lid was full of sand, and was filthy. Thank you for the plastic bag it helped not get the ice dirty. My greatest disappointment thought were the sink fixtures. The fixtures had water stains on them, and looked as though they had not been cleaned for a while. They were old, and seemed to have calcium, and soap scum build up. This hotel was not well kept at all. I feel if you are renting out a room you should make sure everything is properly cleaned and sanitized. This hotel advertises modern, clean, beautiful rooms on its website but, the reality comes up very very short. The night before arriving we stayed at a Holiday inn. The holiday inn was less than half the price of this hotel room, fresh and beautiful. Had I known better I would have booked our whole weekend at a Holiday Inn. This hotel is not worth the time or money.
