It was an okay place. I brought my in-laws with their little dog. We booked a room online (a suite) and mentioned we had a pet, but they said nothing about the little dog until we arrived and moved us into a unit that allowed pets. When we got there the little cottage was small, but cute, however, we had... More

I stayed at the Blue Dolphin Inns and Suites on Grand Isle on Friday and Saturday nights September 23 & 24. While I wasn't expecting it to be the Marriott, it wasn't quite what I was expecting. The first thing I noticed was the smell. I was in room #9 and the smell of mildew hit me right between the... More

Nicest place, beautiful view, can't wait to stay again this summer (see you in a week) Rooms are cozy and the staff makes you feel like family. Quick walk over the dune and you are right on the water with miles of clean beach to walk at your leisure.

This was my first trip to grand isle, we stayed in cabin 12 and it was a very short walk to the beach. This isn't a luxury kinda cabin but was exactly as advertised. The cabin was small but that being said it was perfect for my family of five. The staff was a pleasure to deal with, Mr Mike... More

New air conditioners made the stay comfortable. Soothing beachy colors on the walls and decor was cheerful. Two bedroom deluxe room large enough for four. Convenient to beach. Nice deck out back to gaze at the water. Bar right across the street. Not fancy, but good value for your money.

We made it in late and the owner was most helpful. The cabin was very clean and well kept. Both owners are friendly kind and helpful. Perfect for a day or surf fishing, or a charter. We had everything we needed for a shrimp boil, and the cabin being so cool was much welcomed at the end of the day.... More

Really enjoyed our stay. Everything was so clean. Our cabin was freshly remodeled. Beach was right across the road. Any fishing we did wasn't far from our cabin either so not much time spent driving. Already planning on going back soon.

Grande Isle is a fishing community and the Blue Dolphin is appropriate for the community. Our first trip there, but it isn't a four or five star property. Everything is relative. We had a lovely trip.
