Grand Isle is not a resort locale. It’s a more secluded destination. There’s a nice, clean beach. That’s about it. No light after the sun goes down. Great for stargazing!

1/5 Terrible

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Room comfort
It was not what I expected and I go down to GI a lot so my expectations weren’t real high. I had lots of issues and I’ll sum them up with the fact there was no toilet paper in the place.

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We stayed in one of the lodges. Good privacy, no wall-to-wall neighbors. Furniture basic and some of it home made looking, but no serious problems/issues. Basic but comfortable, we would definitely stay again. Two of the three TV's did respond properly to the remote, but that's not what we came for. Just a few steps from the beach.

I liked the cottage but it was not cleaned when I checked in. When I told the office it hadn’t been cleaned yet he said “check in isn’t until 3:00”. It was 2:58 when I checked in.
