Look no farther than the Isla Grand Beach Resort; they have what you would enjoy. From their colored LED lights and fire pits to the fresh blue waters and it doesn’t stop there. They have themed buffet nightly, fancy drinks, Night club with a featured band, ocean view rooms and direct access to the beach. Some of their pool features include a walk down area which slowly drops you down into the pool. If you just want to sit there are umbrella’s to keep the sun off. Hotel has just completed an extensive renovation inside and out. Come Enjoy, Relax and Soak it all in at the Isla Grand Beach Resort!

Overall Score1.0/ 5
The. Worst. Hotel. Ever. Girl who checked us in couldn't give coherent directions to the room. Finally gave us a map when we returned, but marked the wrong room. Took an hour and a half in an empty restaurant to get a hot dog. When we complained the waiter screamed at us. Had property stolen out of vehicle at night. Shower curtain wasn't hung level so when showering we flooded the bathroom. Mirror was so messed up it was barely adequate and there was no place to hang towels or stow toiletries. Safe wouldn't open one day so had to wait in the room two hours until they opened it and replaced it. Same thing happened the next day with the "new" safe. Furniture was old, broken and filthy. We had giant roaches and fire ants in the room. Mattress was horrible. ALL THIS FOR $400 A NIGHT. DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!
