Welcome to ten acres of tropical paradise at the Isla Grand Beach Resort. Our cabana rooms overlook lush foliage cool pools and tennis courts just steps from the beach. The two-bedroom condominiums located in the high rise tower overlook the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Business is pleasure at the Isla Grand. Our 10000 square feet of meeting space can adapt to your special needs. Relax in the Windjammers Beachfront Cafe while you enjoy an elegant seafood dinner with a panoramic view looking over our pools to the surf. For a more casual fare dine on the Hammerhead Deck or the Whiskey Shack will serve you poolside. Once the sun goes down the heartbeat of the island nightlife pulses at the Quarterdeck Night Club featuring the best bands from all over the United States and hot local talent.

South Padre Island vacation

I stayed at south padre in the middle of September. Perfect weather. No crowds or lines to wait in. The hotel was very nice. They have a nice restraunt, and bar next to the pool. The pool is extremely nice with a jacuzzi on each side. The pool closes at 10 pm, which Is a little early for me.The bar next to the pool is nice, but the drinks have next to no alcohol in them. After the first day, I went to the liqour store and started making my own drinks. The room was nice. We stayed in the cabana rooms which are outside access. Granite countertops and ceramic tile throughout the room. No carpet, which was great. The beds were cheap and were full size instead of queen size which we payed for. They do have baby cribs if you need one.There is no breakfast included. You can eat breakfast at the restraunt for around $11 per person. The beach at the hotel was nice. Very close and easy to access. There are tennis courts. They have live music every night except Monday. Overall, a very nice hotel. I would definitely stay here again!

In need of renovation

The place is okay, the location is great. We have been coming here for decades (since well before it was a Radisson) and I don't think the rooms have been updated in that entire time. We stayed in a beach view room. When we got up early a few times, it took more than 5 minutes for the hot water to arrive. The sink spigot was tight, hard to use, and leaked to the point that the room below us had to call for service. The bed was a sleep number, but I was not impressed. There is a hill between the two sides. The bedding was odd, you can either be cold with just a sheet or broiling under the blanket. The pillows were awful. Did not sleep well. Many of the fixtures are in disrepair. Things that fail are not replaced, it seems, just patched back together. Now I know the beach chair concession is a separate thing, but the same holds. The chairs are awful, stained, some broken, some missing a vinyl strap. The umbrellas have holes in them and are ragged, and in spite of a huge beach area, they cram them together so close that they touch. We were there labor day weekend, it wasn't that busy.

Family Getaway

Very nice condo #507. This condo is beautiful! Only complaint would be the noise outside the 2nd bedroom (near the hallway/walkway). We stayed 5 nights and this went on practically all night every night. We have been staying at the Isla Grand for years and the other condos (2nd bedroom - near hallway/walkway) on the 11th, 9th, & 3rd floors were noisy as well - just the way the condos were designed. Master bedroom faces the pool area and ocean - very quiet. Otherwise, no other complaints. Beautiful view of the ocean! Pool area is very nice and clean. Loved the kiddie pool area for the little ones. Will be back next year!

Family Getaway to Remember

I'll begin with check in. Upon our early arrival, the hotel staff was happy to check us in at 10:45 a.m. The check in process took only a few minutes! Our cabana room overlooked the beautiful pool. Everything, from the pool to our room was ALWAYS clean! The beach location was perfect! The poolside grill served delicious, affordable burgers, grilled chicken, and hot dogs. Our room was a nice size and nicely updated. My one recommendation would be regular mattresses instead of sleep number beds. We can't wait to go back! We will stay at Isla Grand Beach Resort in the future.

Great staff and service. Had a great time knowing the hotel was right next to the beach and the amazing pool to jump into on a warmy day.
