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.

Outstanding Service and Quality

We just completed a one week stay. Our days started with spectacular sunrises from our marina view room. The weather here in January is perfect! Warm, sunny, lower humidity for such a tropical destination. The rooms are large, the bedding is exquisite. Daily Breakfast was included, and we were greeted with genuine hospitality, service, and kindness from Jenifer and Lorenzo, in the Grand Café. We had several lunches at the poolside restaurant, with joyful, efficient service from Gustavo and Luis! We will miss them! And, we will miss the fresh shrimp daily! The pools, the landscaping, the views, the food....amazing. Water taxis direct from the resort to Barra Navidad are very easy, and take only a few minutes. Barra has many great, local restaurants on the beach and on the bay, all serving fresh seafood. If you want to relax, this is the perfect place..... bring your Kindle, your books, and be ready to escape into your personal space. One week here felt like one month of calm. We will happily return!

Welcome Home to Grand Bay

My husband and I fell in love with Barra 7 years ago. It was then, when we were introduced to the Grand Isla Navidad Resort, which we fell in love with immediately. We've been going back every year since our first introduction, for Christmas and New Years celebrations. We typically stay in a Parlor Suite, which is substantial in size, comfortable with king size bed, 2 bathrooms, dining area, small kitchen, etc. Not only do the waterslides, large pool, swim-up bar, boat taxis, restaurants, views, decor and location make us swoon, its the people we keep coming back to see. From the smiling, friendly faces at the front desk, the concierge, bartenders, chamber maids or Grand Cafe, La Plazuela, Antonio's and La Terazza restaurant staff, EVERYONE is a consummate professional with lovely demeanor and positive attitude.Our first breakfast back, we heard, "Welcome Home" from Lorenzo in the Grand Cafe. You can't ask for much more than that! It is like coming home. Wonderful live music in the afternoons at the pool or at La Plazuela, beautifully kept grounds and wonderful day trips to Coco Beach or Melaque...its simply a beautiful spot we will forever come back to.

Too expensive for the quality delivered

We arrived with great expectations on the reviews and notes. But the reality hits hard. The rooms are very nice, except that at night some sort of alarm activates and stays on all night long, we try to report it to the concierge, from the restroom, because room phone didn't work, after the 3rd time in a 3 hour lapsus, they never arrived we decided to give it a shot and try to sleep... so spending the night trying to sleep with a noisy room is quite exhausting.Breakfast buffet is average, the basics, eggs, chilaquiles and some fruit, with fair taste. The other restaurants, too expensive for the quality delivered. Portions are small and taste is fair. A couple with average appetite like us, spent easily $100 USD for dinner with 1 entry and a small main course, no drinks included.Bottle water from the room is not free! it's about 40 pesos each =SPools have cold water. No handicap access support, a lot of stairs for everywhere.Points on favour, the view is nice, the sea is calm and you have air conditioner in the room.Overall result: never coming back.

Great Family Vacation in One Great Location

We stayed in the Grand Hotel with our extended family. Had a great time. The location has everything: Golf (27 holes), Marina, Lagoon & beach. Great excursions from Hotel to a run-aground ship (amazing), crocodile reserve, nearby Barra Navidad. The experience was truly highlighted by a staff that goes above and beyond to meet your needs. We traveled as a large group (20), and lunch was never a concern. In the restaurant Gustavo Magaña was outstanding making sure we had everything we needed and made our stay that much better. Great place to vacation!
