Nice location, ambience is too good. Go for top floors for the magnificent views. Tariff not too high but yes a bit. Nice swimming pool, gym, bar and tennis court. It is really beautiful. There are other resorts nearby where rooms are much closer to the ocean but this one is the most beautiful.

A little more attention to detail before this is a true resort. While nice in its day, some upgrades are needed. Staff were pleasant and helpful. If your going to charge resort prices its important to take those few extra steps. I have read over and over no coffee, yet its ignored. To have to walk all the way to...

We always stay at La Isla Grand when we travel to South Padre. I have never had any complaints until now. Upon arrival, our TV didn't work, phone didn't work and the coke machine ate our money. Upon complaining, we were transferred rooms and we're given credit for the cokes. That was nice of management. The next day we were...

This is a great place to stay for winter sun fun! Pools-one has nicely warm water, hot tubs, fantastic beach, restaurant had very delicious Valentine's day specials and very pleasant wait staff. Room isn't exactly clean as I would like. Janitorial staff was very polite and helpful in getting light bulbs replaced. Maddeline at the front desk is wonderful and...

It's great to hear that you had a good time when you were here! We're disappointed to hear that it was a bit loud, though -- it's true that it can get pretty noisy in the bar area, but we wouldn't want that to affect your sleep. We hope to see you again next time you're in the area. All...

The room is very very outdated. The shower/tub didn't drain very well. So water filled up to the ankles while showering. Room Smelled like old musty mildew. And wind and rain came in through the sliding glass door. That being said, we made the best of it. The View is amazing, the people were real nice. The bar club area...

I expected a really grand place, based on the price and past reviews. Therefore, things like no coffee in the room and no room service to get any (you walk to the lobby and my room was far from the lobby) damped my enthusiasm. I paid for an ocean view. To get the ocean view, you had to stand right...

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.

Just spent Christmas weekend at Isla Grand Hotel and what a disappointment. I paid extra and reserved a beach bungalow with no beach, just an 8' vegetated sand dune blocking the view of the ocean. The room had dead cockroaches and spiders. It was a nice room with a bar sink but no microwave and no coffee pot so no...

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.
