Old world charm

RoanP (Christmas, Florida) on Dec 10, 2022

What an amazing resort, from manicured grounds that go on forever to the swim pool bar, gourmet food to immaculate marina this place has it all. The hardest part is not staying forever. Take a few swings at the 27 hole golf course or tennis courts of you're feeling frisky. Or plan a wedding here and see just how magical this place can be. We came in a sailboat and seriously considered never leaving.

Do not book through 3rd party (, Expedia)

L725VIgustavom (Menifee, California) on Jun 20, 2022

Be very careful! The resort will not help you if you have an issue with your reservation. By far the most unprofessional customer service. I booked via, when I arrived to the resort, the resort claimed they had not received payment. They refused to provide a refund so we could go elsewhere. When asked if they could cancel and help with the situation, they refused to assist and told repeatedly to figure it. Rudely was asked to move away from the reception desk until the matter was solved. Call and verified and half of the money was due at the resort(I had to have hotels.con refund the partial payment so I could pay at resort. Would not recommend this resort, I ended up paying double to stay here. Disputing the charge with my credit card company. Hotel is outdated and lots of issues throughout. Forced to stay here even though we wanted to cancel. Just beware. Looks beautiful from the outside! THE RESORT NEEDS TO UPDATE THERE PICTURES. Deceiving and misleading.

Sweet but needs maintenence

Amy123castillo on Jun 14, 2022

We just got back.. it was an ok stay the rooms are spacious with a great view. However it needs major repair. Upon arriving we noticed our keys didn't work, I was scared to turn on the lamp because it was off the brackets. The floor boards were crumbling.. there's mold all over the building. Not to mention saw several areas that were supposed to have extinguishers but were not there... the place would be gorgeous. If it had proper maintenence. The food was ok. But the coffee is always cold. We ended up having a good time besides the large water bug crawling on my leg in the middle of the night. Like I said beautiful property but they need to fix it up.

This is an historic exceptional property which overlooks a stunning bay. The rooms and amenities are the finest in this area and this is the best hotel to visit in this region. Above all the service is superior and every staff member is attentive beyond compare. My husband has been visiting this property for over 20 years. We will Always return.

Perfect ending to our time in Barra de Navidad

Verne C (San Miguel de Allende, Mexico) on May 09, 2022

We were welcomed for day use at Grand Isla Navidad Resort by Lucia Valencia Millan. Although there was a modest day use fee we found it a most excellent hotel with an accommodating staff, lovely grounds, fine dining and good access to the lagoon for swimming. During our visit to Barra de Navidad the surf was very high and dangerous and the Grand Isla Navidad was the perfect respite. On our next visit to this area, this hotel would be our first choice. Maybe I'll bring my golf clubs as well since the 27 hole course was very inviting.
