Reviews for Grand Isle Resort & Spa
I don't even know where to start.. that's why I'll start from the beginning. We started off in that amazingly beautiful resort with Delton at the reception. He was super fast and very nice. Lovely Paul helped us with our luggage and introduced us to our "home" in such a beautiful way.. that was sooo sweet čśŹ Later that day we met Aketha and Dendrigh as our two concierges we met during our stay. We felt so comfortable, we trusted their tipps and advices and we did NOT regret it. čśŹ oh and thanks to Brendi(Reception) I found that water Swing and ate some heavenly delicious crack Lobster čśŹčśŹčśŹ All of the housekeeping staff was nice and patient, especially when weren't ready for them to come in :) they did their job perfectly! The pool and the palapa grill were always a pleasure. The pool was clean and very nice to chill. The Palapa grill has some amazing staff working there too! Super nice and they always truly made our day! The hummingbird hut knows exactly what you need for whatever tour you've booked. Especially Modesta has been a big help for us, because he was so patient with us. He taught us how to stand up paddle :D For the tours: We can recommend the sun fun tour with captain Ty!!! Best tour guide ever! Maybe you've realized it, I was able to memorize all those names, because whenever I talked to someone, I felt like bonding. It was such a pleasure meeting them all. Without them, that resort wouldnt be so succesfull.. also special thanks to Dia (you're doing an awesome job there!), Anja, Obie and RodgerčśŐ it certainly doesn't matter who you talk to, they are all amazing. čśŹ I hope to be back there again čśŐ
My husband, daughter (5 years old) and myself stayed at Grand Isle for 7 days last week. The property is beautiful. We had a one bedroom garden view which turned out to be a 2nd story golf course view. While we did miss the ocean view (our choice) we were only in the room to sleep so saving the money to spend on excursions and food was worth it to us. It is very quiet in November and we were often the only people in the pool. The guys in the pool hut were SUPER friendly and helpful. I loved talking with them and they were always there to give us fresh towels, put up our umbrella, provide fins and water toys, etc. They even asked my husband 'what could we do at Grand Isle to make your stay even better?' We were very impressed that the pool attendants cared so much about our happiness! The room was gorgeous! Quality furnishings and well-stocked kitchen. We loved having our own washer and dryer and went home with all clean clothes. Housekeeping always smiling and saying 'good morning'. Everyone was so genuinely friendly. The only thing we were disappointed in all week was the lack of communication about the dinners/entertainment that the restaurant had on two separate nights. We were never told at check-in or any other time that the restaurant would have live entertainment during the week. We drove to dinner at Augusta Bay and had a very poor meal only to return to find out we missed a bonfire, special dinner offering and live music/performances. One day I even asked the hostess what was going on for dinner and she told me they were having a Bohemian buffet but did not mention the entertainment. We were sad to miss these special experiences. We know our daughter would have loved it. The resort could also benefit from a hot tub and hope they plan to put one in with the new pool. All and all, our week at Grand Isle was EXCELLENT! We would definitely return and highly recommend it! Thanks!!

I am just returning from an 8 day vacation at Grand Isle, and my experience was overwhelming. I was waited on hand and foot- drinks delivered to the beach, a beautiful 3 bedroom villa and the most pleasant people to take care of all my needs. Gail Rolle was usually our server at breakfast and Tailia Rolle would sing to us when we walked in! Gail was very professional, always smiling, and truly seemed to enjoy her job. Tailia made us laugh every time we came to the restaurant or bar. Bertrum makes the best bloody marys !!! As we were an older bunch, Roger would ride us to our villa as we were at the end of the property, which by the way was beautifully maintained. I have been to this resort twice, and will continue to return. I'm even looking into purchasing a villa there for my use in the winter. The entire, and I truly mean ENTIRE staff, was welcoming, professional, fun, and determined to fulfill your every wish!

A friend had recommended this resort and the island to me. It was a little higher than I'm usually willing to pay, but 2 master bedrooms; 2 en suite bathrooms, full living/dining/kitchen upstairs with a gorgeous balcony overlooking the golf course and ocean is hard to beat. We had our own golf cart to ride around the resort or down to the liquor store. The restaurant was terrific -- we ate there almost every meal. Service personnel were mostly gracious, highly trained, and will to do whatever it took to make the guests happy,. Could not have asked for more!

Grand Isle Resort was extremely accommodating and took the time to make sure we were having the most comfortable stay as possible. The rooms are large, clean, and the resort offers all the usual amenities including room service. Each villa is equipped with a golf cart located in a small garage and parking spot outside your door if choose to rent a car. There is only one restaurant currently on the property (with great but understandably expensive food), but construction has been started to remodel an old beach home into another place to dine. Would definitely stay here again! Special shoutout to Paul with the "5 Star Smile" and Jonathan at the front gate! You were both so friendly and genuinely wanted to know about our lives. Thank you for being a source of laughter and recommending some great places to visit on the island.
