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... More

The Quarterdeck Lounge has horrible servers.. We were on vacation from Iowa, came to surprise the awesome band -Passion!! The Staff at Windjammer's Beach front Cafe were great!! Dance floor is small and dancers have no dance etiquette.

I have had a lovely week of r and r at IGBR. We travelled as a family of 4 (tired parents, 2 boys aged 10 and 12, glued to iPads). We stayed in a 2br condo on level 10.

We have been to this hotel quite often for various meals and always enjoyed our times. Thanksgiving was perhaps the only time we were less satisfied. Our waiter, Jacob, was very nice and helpful. The food was disappointing. The beef was tougher than an old boot, the turkey (dark meat) was served in strings rather than pieces and not moist.... More

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.

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.

We didn't actually stay at the hotel, We went to the Quarter Deck Bar inside the Isla Grand Resort. They had a disco band playing 80's music. It was a good time. May go back again. The hotel property looks very nice.

Paid extra money to be in a room on the beach and was told on the phone I would be on the beach when I stepped out my door. Not true. You can't walk out your door and be on the beach. We had a view of sand dunes and very little water from our more expensive room. My brother... More
