My wife and I stayed here for a few days and the aggravations we suffered outweighed the beauty of the resort. It started when we waited several hours to get to our room. Then we were sent to what was advertised as a water view room to find it was far from a water view. After complaining to management, they... More

Almost like staying at one of the Four Seasons residences resorts, wonderfully built quality construction (not found in many out island vacay spots) We stayed two nights at a different place that was advertised as a resort style place but once we got there it was just a gated residence community with managed vacation rentals, it was remote even though...

This is one of the most well-kept and incredibly managed resort we have stayed in before. I must agree with all the great reviews about this place. Everything was perfect: The resort, the villas, the restaurant, the pool, the nice beach, the amenities, and even better, the staff and management team led by Mrs. Sandra. Let me briefly unpack it...

Just got back from a 4 day trip after spending a week at the Atlantis. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind after a hectic week of a mega resort which in itself is beautiful.

It's an all right place nothing really special Sandals controls the island and does a fairly good job. Has a great infastruture was a four seasons. The marina is an after thought for Sandals and needs attention desperately. Grand Isle doesn't really offer much in the form of amenities

This resort is nothing short of spectacular. Posh very spacious villas, attentive friendly staff, reasonable prices, very good restaurant and you are surrounded by spectacular beaches. It seems that every road leads to a beach a number of which have no (human) tracks in the sand and not a person in sight, but with expanses of white powdery sand, gin... More

This was our first visit to the Bahamas and we are so happy that we chose to travel to Exuma for our family vacation. Overall, Exuma seemed very laid back and calm, and Grand Isle was a dream come true. Our family has visited many nice tropical beaches and we always target villas or apartments as our accommodations.
