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.

Great Experience

Everything about our stay was first class. Highly recommended. A truly beautiful place. Food was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful! The spa service was exceptional. This is a true gem located about 40 miles from Manzanillo.

La Plazuela for Lunch

Caught the water taxi ($30 P return) over to Isla de Navidad and Bay Grand for lunch in La Plazuela, the poolside patio cafe. Nice setting, comfortable table. Started with stiff margaritas, on the pricy side at $120 P each. Appies arrived next, good pico-de-gallo and excellent guacamole. For lunch we ordered the Cowboy Burger, The Veggie Panini and the Grilled Chicken Sandwich. All OK, served with fries and coleslaw. Good service, washrooms clean, credit cards accepted, price on the high side. Hotel grounds lok to be in need of some TLC.

A once-glamorous resort in need of an update

We had planned a quick getaway to Grand Isla Navidad resort in hopes of some rest and relaxation. We usually go to Cabo or the Riviera Maya for beach vacations. We wanted to try something different. The resort looked nice on the website. The resort hasn't been updated in years. The room was very dated. The food was ok. There is no beach. The pool loungers were worn out. We will not be back.

Fabulous Room! Fabulous Hotel! Fabulous Pool! Fabulous Property!

I felt spoiled staying here! Our room was huge, with a couch table and chairs, balcony overlooking the harbor with two chairs and tiny table. A/C was plentiful. Were able to use the fridge after taking a picture of the contents (honor bar). Big bathroom with two sinks, separate bathtub (big with handheld) and shower, toilet behind closed door and bidet. The entire property was gorgeous, well tended, friendly and helpful service and the breakfasts to die for (I gained 3 pounds in 5 days). On property sports - foosball, tennis, badminton, golf, ping pong, numerous pools with slides and pool bar. Hiking venues, water toy rentals, yoga and a few restaurants/bars. Really very, very nice! Use water taxis to get across the little estuary to the town - very romantic/fun! Luxury hotel at not to be missed prices!

Beyond Expectation

We stayed at the beautiful Grand Isle Navidad resort for 3 nights while our boat was docked in the marina undergoing some repairs. They gave us a discounted price and a beautiful large room on the tenth floor which only has 6 rooms and suites including the presidential one with a private swimming pool , jacuzzi and a terrace with a bar overlooking the lagoon. Stunning. The room was beautifully appointed with everything you could want . Free wifi, bar fridge, bath tub, bathrobe , chocolates at night. The list goes on and on.The service is great. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is really really good and plentiful. The gardens are huge and well groomed full of bird life tropical flowers, a waterfall and long interesting walks. There are tennis courts, yoga on the beach, a spa, gym, pool bar in a large pool and a gorgeous area on a small intimate beach complete with private pagodas, lots of water sports, a golf course, shops, and marina. Anyone with a boat is welcome at the resort. The hotel provides a water taxi service to and from the quaint little town of Barra de Navidad 24 hours a days. Not that you even need to leave the resort.But it was the architecture and interior design of the hotel that was so impressive. Very different from the bland rectangles you so often find with chain hotels. Tremendous detail, and It's homely despite it's massive size. Beautifully lit up at night. It reminded me of Disneyland. We will definitely stay again. It is by far one of the most beautiful resorts we have ever stayed at. Congratulations to the management and the architect!
