We stayed at Grand Isle for 5 nights with our two "tween" children in February. Every staff member was so friendly and accommodating during our entire stay. The villa itself exceeded our expectations. We had a two bedroom oceanfront in a building at the end. It was beautifully and comfortably furnished, with high end appliances. Beds were comfortable, linens crisp...

The accommodations are very nice and what you would expect for the money. the part of the restaurant, was the location. Food and service were below what was expected for the price .. if you want to experience the island you will have to leave the resort. for small children this is a good place to stay.

Despite it being a 'open restaurant' and anyone can go eat there since it's cash payment they were rude to us. The waited about 25 minutes to...

Dear Benottitim, Please accept our sincere apology. I can not explain what happened it should not have happened! We do have a small restaurant and cater to our resort guest since we do have such limited seating, but normally can take several outside reservations. The team and I will look into this immediately and get to the bottom of what...

Jamiel Clark made my sister and I feel special from the moment we stepped on property. He is truly a "hands on" manager that takes care of his guests. We can't thank him enough for looking after us! Our two bedroom penthouse was fabulous with bay view out of the front and ocean view out of the back. The penthouse...

Just returned from the best vacation of my life. After much research, my sister and I decided on Grand Isle based on the pictures and reviews. We couldn't be happier with our stay. The first thing you notice when you drive through the gates is how beautiful it is. Palm trees, beautiful flowering bushes, immaculately maintained, just breathtaking. Even though...

I was incredibly pleased with Jamiel's thoughtfulness and willingness to problem solve concerns raised during our time (my husband and I) at the Grand Isle Resort. His interaction with us during our 7 day stay were genuine and resulted in us definitely planning a return. In addition to great resort management, the picture perfect surroundings in the resort and area...
