We just returned from Grand Isle and if we could go back tomorrow, we would. We stayed in a two bedroom villa, which was beautiful and beyond spacious. The beach was stunning and never crowded, and the pool was warm so the kids swam for hours on end. Best of all, no one played the 'towel on the lounge chair'... More

We just returned from an amazing stay the Grand Isle Resort and are already planning our next one. I was traveling with my wife and 11 year old son. I can't think of a negative thing to say... Villas - large, well designed, felt like home. The kitchen had all the appliances you need, The bedrooms were roomy, the beds,... More

Ok, the Villas are AWESOME! And while it may be an odd thing to comment on, the housekeeping was excellent. We were so happy with the accommodations...for the same price as a nice hotel, you get 2-3 bedrooms and a spacious kitchen/living room with outdoor decks...and washer/dryer. The pool area is very nice, not huge but it was never crowded.... More

We went with two families. The villas were very spacious and clean. The views from our villas were amazing. I took amazing pictures of the sunrise and sunsets from the porch. Renting a golf cart is not necessary but a nice perk to help you get from the pool to the villas. The kids loved the Huge beach, with white... More

We just left the Grand Isle resort and were very pleasantly surprised by it. We expected a hotel room and quickly found out they were all villas. Beautifully decorated and well kept rooms. The pool area was the perfect mix of quiet and secluded with some action. The pool restaurant and bar was great and the staff was friendly. Our... More

My husband and I visited Exuma for the first time and we really loved the resort. We had a huge 3 bedroom villa complete with tasteful furnishings. Take a golf cart, its a nice way to get around the resort grounds and also to tour around the yacht club next door or to drive the golf course. The bed was... More

This is a beautiful resort, and an oasis on Exuma Island. You will not be disappointed with your the resort itself, except for the food. The restaurant is my only complaint, mediocre food and very slow service. The rooms are fully equipped and you can cook your own meals if you wish to do so. The restaurants on the island... More

We wanted to get away for five nights at an out island in the Bahamas. My wife found Grand Isle on the Internet, pictures and descriptions looked great. On our arrival we weren't disappointed, great grounds, villas, pool, beach and a GREAT staff. The in house restaurant had great food, and we had a more than relaxing stay with periodic... More

Dear Rich, Thanks for the review and we are so pleased to hear your expectations were exceeded. That said your next trip let us know and we will either get some groceries delivered to your Villa or help you find a grocery store that is about 10 minutes from the resort. Although it is not as large you can normally... More

Returning to Exuma and Grand Isle for our 2nd time, my husband and I booked a two bedroom ocean view for our stay last week (as the 1 bedroom ocean views were all sold out). I couldn't imagine the rooms and views getting much better than the 1 bedroom ocean front room we had our 1st stay, but was I... More

This was our second stay as a family at GIR. Having been on numerous exclusive Caribbean islands for weddings and holidays over the last 3 decades, I would say these "rooms" (which are really spacious 2 story villas) are probably the best in the Caribbean for the money. It's quite amazing what you get. It's your well appointed house with... More
