We returned yesterday from a 7 days stay -- family of three. We all had an absolutely wonderful time -- our expectations were met or exceeded in all regards. The place is beautiful and well maintained - even more beautiful than the pictures. Really there is nothing not to like. Just relax and let the staff take good care of...

Top notch accommodations, supported by an amazing staff. From the front desk team, to Mr.Troy by the beach and pool, everyone was genuinely friendly and concerned about ensuring everything was taken care of to highest level of service. The term "family," was used we believe it!

Probably the best resort I have ever stayed at! We stayed in a one bedroom with ocean views and it was simply amazing. The rooms were massive and very luxurious, the hotel grounds are well manicured and the hotel provides golf carts to get around the resort.

The views from our condo were breathtaking. The accommodations were top notch - we couldn't believe how gorgeous it was. All staff were friendly and accommodating.

What a great place! If you can, go in the off-season! We had great weather and a small number of other guests at the resort but still the same attention and kindness you'd expect from an on-season visit. We loved it here! Although pricey (but that's consistent across the island) we had great food and drinks during our stay. The...

Dear Dawn S, We are so pleased to know you loved your time at Grand Isle Resort. We will definatly look into the timing of breakfast most of the tours leave at 8am allowing guest 30 minutes for breakfast but this can get tight I imagine. Have a great year and please think about us next year for your vacation....

The hotel itself has a great location, amazing amenities and I can’t speak enough about the rooms. However, the place felt a bit staid and I assume this was because it was primarily a timeshare property so you have individuals who love to bring their whole families there. It’s still a nice property overall but I’m not sure I’d recommend...
