If a beautiful Bahama vacation is calling your name, be sure to put Grand Isle Resort in Exuma at the top of your bucket list! These condo style rooms are perfection with plenty of luxury and space for families or friends. Bathrooms are large and brimming with real stone, beautiful fixtures, & the best products by L'Occitane. The open floor... More

This review will be somewhat redundant but I will try to add some practical tips. Like past reviewers I cannot say enough nice things about this property. My experience there was during the almost off-season so keep in mind that it will be more crowded during the busy season. It is a fairly spread out property so I think it... More

We stayed here for our anniversary and were expecting it to be fantastic looking at other guests reviews. Nothing could have prepared us though for the beauty of the resort itself and Emerald Bay. Our suite was so lovely with everything we could need. A week was really not enough. We felt like we'd died and gone to heaven. Special... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights at a garden villa and loved it. 5 nights was the perfect amount of time. Pros: + lovely, large suites with fully functional kitchen, living rooms, large jacuzzi bath and washer/dryer. Lovely decor and furnishings.

This is a condo resort with 78 condos. It is very quiet and I really enjoyed that. The people who work there are very nice - we especially loved Shug (a waitress) and Emerson (he helped us to our condo and also worked at the activities hut). There is a pool and a beach to sit at. There is one... More

My husband and I traveled to Exuma for our 30th anniversary. We stayed at Grand Isle in a beautiful villa, and had the time of our lives. We have been to several Caribbean islands, and this is our favorite. The setting is absolutely stunning! We loved exploring the island, eating at local spots (Big Ds), and enjoyed a boat tour...

There are a couple of things worth noting... Here are my negatives: - Oceanview Villas do have an ocean view, however it is obstructed by their Oceanfront Villas. I can't really say that that bothered us too much, however had I known about the oceanfront villas, I may have opted to stay in one of them or a Garden View... More

Only ate lunch and toured the place. Pool and grounds were top notch. The lobster and tomato salad was amazing. The pizzas and other items others ordered looked just as good. Outside guests are welcome. Drop in if you are in the area. The gaurd working the gate at sandals rec'd this place. Free wifi too

The villas in this property are big (but I live in Manhattan so it's all relative) and very well furnished. The kitchen has everything you need to make meals short of groceries.
