Isla Grand Beach Resort sits on 10-acres of beautiful green tropics on the beach along the Texas Gulf Coast—a tropical escape in south Texas since 1959, continuing to make vacation dreams come true for its guests. Your own little slice of paradise awaits you at Isla Grand South Padre Beach Resort! Come on, and let’s play.
My family and I were invited to a South Padre Island on behalf of the South Padre CVB and Texas Travel Talk. All opinions are my own.

Isla Grand South Padre Resort Accommodations
We were met by gorgeous tropical parrots who love to chat outside the Isla Grand entrance! I’m always surprised to hear a bird repeat words back to me, even at my age. “Hi!” The kids looked forward to coming and going when it meant an encounter with these guys. At least we did.
The accommodations at Isla Grand exceeded our expectations!
Isla Grand offers cabana rooms and two-bedroom condos with views overlooking the Gulf. The condos feature a full-size kitchen, dining and living area, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms. When looking for a family getaway to spend time together and build memories, it’s such an asset to have a gorgeous, spacious home away from home. That’s what we found at Isla Grand Beach Resort.
After hours in the sun, and it’s time to wind down and relax in your condo, you will have the space you need to enjoy a good movie or a game of cards with the family. Everyone can pitch in with the meal prep in the full-size kitchen.
In the morning, I took a peek outside, it was so beautiful and calm that it drew me out onto the balcony, where I sunk into a chair. I couldn’t help but think how lucky I was to be with my family.
Breathing in the ocean air and listening to the seagulls and ocean water in the distance is one thing I’ll never tire of. My eyes feasted on a fantastic sunrise as I felt the stress leaving my body. Now, that’s a vacation!
So, you may be tempted to sleep in after a full day of activities, but might I suggest a nap in the afternoon instead. Watching the sunrise from your balcony is well worth the early wake-up!
Things To Do At Isla Grand Beach Resort
I’m sure by now you’re in love with this beachfront full-service resort, but what’s outside is remarkable.
Two Pools At Isla Grand South Padre
Not one, but two huge pools! Splash with the family, then read a book on a beach chair while enjoying the ocean air. and watching your family have fun. What could be more satisfying than that! And, after enjoying swimming in the pools, you can take a short walk from the pool area to the beach.

Fine dining with the family is the perfect addition to your ultimate family getaway for lunch and dinner. You can’t beat the tropical view! You’ll find yourself repeating, “I can’t believe I’m still in Texas!” I know I did!
Being so close to the border of Mexico and the ocean, you can imagine that seafood and Mexican food rule here. Windjammers has a great combination of both.
Writer’s Favorite: We recommend the melt in your mouth fajitas.
The Mexican Taquitos were tasty and served just the way I like them, topped with avocado, cheese, cilantro, and onions. Yum!
Everything we tried was excellent. We give Windjammers a 2-thumbs up.
