We had planned a quick getaway to Grand Isla Navidad resort in hopes of some rest and relaxation. We usually go to Cabo or the Riviera Maya for beach vacations. We wanted to try something different. The resort looked nice on the website. The resort hasn't been updated in years. The room was very dated. The food was ok. There is no beach. The pool loungers were worn out. We will not be back.

I felt spoiled staying here! Our room was huge, with a couch table and chairs, balcony overlooking the harbor with two chairs and tiny table. A/C was plentiful. Were able to use the fridge after taking a picture of the contents (honor bar). Big bathroom with two sinks, separate bathtub (big with handheld) and shower, toilet behind closed door and bidet. The entire property was gorgeous, well tended, friendly and helpful service and the breakfasts to die for (I gained 3 pounds in 5 days). On property sports - foosball, tennis, badminton, golf, ping pong, numerous pools with slides and pool bar. Hiking venues, water toy rentals, yoga and a few restaurants/bars. Really very, very nice! Use water taxis to get across the little estuary to the town - very romantic/fun! Luxury hotel at not to be missed prices!

We stayed at the beautiful Grand Isle Navidad resort for 3 nights while our boat was docked in the marina undergoing some repairs. They gave us a discounted price and a beautiful large room on the tenth floor which only has 6 rooms and suites including the presidential one with a private swimming pool , jacuzzi and a terrace with a bar overlooking the lagoon. Stunning. The room was beautifully appointed with everything you could want . Free wifi, bar fridge, bath tub, bathrobe , chocolates at night. The list goes on and on. The service is great. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is really really good and plentiful. The gardens are huge and well groomed full of bird life tropical flowers, a waterfall and long interesting walks. There are tennis courts, yoga on the beach, a spa, gym, pool bar in a large pool and a gorgeous area on a small intimate beach complete with private pagodas, lots of water sports, a golf course, shops, and marina. Anyone with a boat is welcome at the resort. The hotel provides a water taxi service to and from the quaint little town of Barra de Navidad 24 hours a days. Not that you even need to leave the resort. But it was the architecture and interior design of the hotel that was so impressive. Very different from the bland rectangles you so often find with chain hotels. Tremendous detail, and It's homely despite it's massive size. Beautifully lit up at night. It reminded me of Disneyland. We will definitely stay again. It is by far one of the most beautiful resorts we have ever stayed at. Congratulations to the management and the architect!

Our experience with this resort goes back several years, so yes, We've been there before, but have no affiliation except that we love this hotel/resort and the community. Called the "Grand Isla Navidad Resort" or sometimes the Grand Bay or just Isla this property is unique in that it is located out on the end of a long peninsula that makes it seem like it is in the middle of no-where. You will be on two lane roads all the way there through coconut, mango and banana plantations so don't expect to stop at the mall because there are not any coming this way from the airport. I think it is called an island or "Isla" because there is technically a stream that returns to the sea on the way out that you cross by a small bridge. The property is stand alone in that it occupies the entire end of the peninsula with no adjoining hotels, restaurants, etc. You enter the property through a manned security gate then through the massive, beautiful 27 hole, golf course (and I don't play golf) complete with it's own amazing club house and restaurant. Then through another security gate and over a hill down into the resort's main property complete with a beautiful marina. The only detraction are the limited number of flights that fly into Manzanillo Airport (ZLO), so you may have to be creative to get there, but it's worth it! There are packages available, be sure to consider one of the packages to the Manzanillo area that offers this resort as an option. It is stunning to first see the hotel from any direction. Actually I'm stunned every time I return to it. It is situated on a hillside so the structure is terraced, but with the effect from the outside that it is all a massive building. And it is a massive building, but not just one big high rise type, its unique and once your in it you look out over varied and beautiful ocean, bay and inland views and sometimes all at once. You actually enter the front lobby at the 6th floor level, you'll have to see it to appreciate it. There are several elevator towers to get you from floor to floor as needed. Built in the 1980's the hotel's overall appearance and style are beautiful and an impressive example of old school Spanish style colonial architecture. The interior common areas and rooms are equally beautiful and comfortable. The property is so unique, that I often encounter first time visitors that are always stunned by its beauty and are always amazed and surprised to have found this hidden gem, saying, "who knew"! But, pay attention to where your going and where you've been, it's easy to get confused and a bit lost in here! There are actually three separate pools, the main pool with a restaurant and palapa swim up bar. Actually this pool has three levels connected by slides and paths. The main area is huge and there are enough lounge chairs, tables and chairs to accommodate everyone that wants to be there. There are two smaller pools that are very private; you'll just have to explore to find them though. The restaurants have a very good and varied menu. The top of the line restaurant, Antonio's features stunning entrees and exquisite service. The Grand Cafe has a great menu also and hosts the buffet service except that sometimes the breakfast buffet brunch is held at the poolside restaurant. Don't ask me for the schedule or hold me to this, I think it's subject to change based upon seasonal needs. The breakfast buffet has always been excellent. You can order meals poolside, at the palapa bar or at the poolside restaurant. The fish tacos here are one of our favorites. The little town of Barra de Navidad (Barra), about 4,500 population lies just across the inlet from the sea. It was discovered by Spanish seafarers in 1564 on Christmas Day, hence (sand bar of Christmas) so it's been around a long time. Barra is a favorite Mexican beach resort community with a contingency of US and Canadian ex-patriots sharing the beautiful Bahia de Navidad (Bay of Christmas). American surfers discovered the surf break in the early 70's and some of them have stayed, married and now own businesses. We have found in season a nice variety of really good restaurants in town so we don't always dine at the hotel; not detracting from the hotel, but that's our choice. There are no banks or super markets in Barra, one ATM and a few "abbarrotes" or small grocery stores. Some people like to stay on property and that's OK too, but we think you are missing out on the ambiance of the area if you don't try it. Access to town is by water taxi, a very short 3-4 minute ride away across a calm lagoon. The hotel has a pick up dock or "muelle" on the north side of the hotel. They pick you up and when you get off at their dock you pay the $30 peso fair p/p, r/t, which is extra even if you go all inclusive. If you do take the all-inclusive route you should still go into town just to see it and have a favorite beverage at one of the quaint beach restaurants. If for some reason you come to the hotel from the Barra side that's OK too, just take the water taxi over and work your way up to the front desk. The hotel's rooms, whether a regular guest room or suite are large and comfortable, nicely furnished and appointed and all have a beautiful in-suite bathrooms. Some of the suites are exquisite! I have encountered on occasion a few minor defects or items in need of attention in my room and they have always been taken care of upon request. The check in staff are bi-lingual and the entire staff is always polite and helpful; I think doing their best to be sure that your stay is as good as it can be. But remember, if you're from the US or Canada, this is not like staying at home, you are in a different country with different customs and traditions, respect and enjoy the difference. I have only attached a few photos, there are many already posted by the hotel and guests, please explore them and inquire at the hotel about your specific needs. In my experience they will do everything they can to accommodate your needs. Enjoy!

We love this resort and it was our second time there. It's quiet and laid back and very spacious. You have the feeling that you're in the halls of a castle on a beach. Elegant and very nicely put together but also inviting. We took our 6 year old with us both trips and he had a blast. They're great with kids and take the time to get to know their names, no joke. My son had his favorites that he knew by name and knew his name in return!
