Our Opinion

A secluded, luxurious golf & marina resort and condo located in the developing Barra de Navidad area. In and around town there are some great little seafood spots as well as lovely hand crafted souvenirs. The Grand Bay Hotel is run by Wyndham Resorts and the unique suites are pure luxury. They do not do free nightly entertainment here but they do have live music around pool during the day. This resort is also great at hosting large groups. The Grand Bay Resort is perfect for couples who want a relaxing, luxury vacation. This resort is also great for golfers!


Bordered by beautiful natural coves and a tranquil lagoon on a private island, this Spanish-style luxury resort features a spectacular 27-hole golf course and 199 well-appointed rooms and suites in several 3-storey buildings. At the Grand Isla Navidad Resort one can experience the luxury of modern conveniences complemented by the charms of Old Mexico. This four diamond hotel is ideal for a luxury Mexico vacation. Play a round of golf on the gold medal course surrounded by majestic mountains and crashing ocean waves. In addition to golf, deep-sea fishing, horseback riding and a private marina are a few of the other recreational features of the Grand Bay.

Location: On a cove and marina in Barra de Navidad, approximately 30 minutes from the Manzanillo city and airport.

Balance in Mexico

We decided to test the balance of local Mexico with luxury Mexico. The Grand Isla is a great resort, very big, very nice, and offers a great getaway. The rooms are great, the beds very comfortable, bathrooms luxurious, robes delightful, and the staff very helpful. Breakfast was included in our stay. We stayed for dinner the first night and ventured out for more local flair from then on. Surprisingly the shoulder season rates pared with very less appealing places in Melaque. All-in-all, great place to stay although I prefer being closer to local Mexico.

Good all around marina, hotel, restaurant(s), resort

We sailed into the Marina, which is well kept, offering power, water, wifi, showers, etc. The hotel is well appointed with wonderful views, pools, a small beach, and good restaurants. It is serviced by a short and inexpensive water taxi which regularly goes between the resort and Barra de Navidad or wherever else in the area you'd like to go. There is plenty to walk to as well if you want to skip the water taxi at some point. We stayed on the boat so cannot comment on the rooms themselves.

Great destination location

Traveled with some girlfriends for a little getaway and what a beautiful place for it. We arrived and immediately were served a delicious juice and offered a seat in a gorgeous lobby. When show. To our rooms we had beautiful views and they were decorated perfectly and very clean. The pool area is very large so it is easy to escape the crowds. We ordered drinks and fish tacos one day by the pool and they were delicious. The swim up bar is one of my favorite things. The hotel does need some minor repairs probably due to the recent storm but with this fabulous location I would highly recommend it. Being able to take the water taxi over to Barra where there are many wonderful restaurants is perfect!!

Great, although it could be better

We were at this hotel to close our Riviera Nayarit city/beach tours. It was an excellent choice because after being 7 days hoping from one beach to another a little luxury pampering feela awesome! The hotel itself is impressive, the views are spectacular (sunsets) everything is very nice, great rooms, great views, lobby bar has an excelent view. The only thing I was not impressed with is the food and drinks, we were on an all-inclusive rate that did not include certain domestic beers, which I would understand if they are imported drinks like scotch or champagne but beer? Really? Then, the restaurant needed a lot of maintenance and the menu needed way more variety. The pool area is great, it has a water slide for the kids, the kids club is ok, and the hotel boutique had very cheap deals. Oh! The beach area is beautiful, don't forget to visit! Loved the place, would definitely come back!
