Our villa was fabulous – spacious, clean, well-decorated and furnished, quiet, with a great kitchen. Our rooms were wonderful, too. The kitchen aspect is especially important to me because I have Celiac Disease (strict gluten free diet) and often have to cook for myself to avoid cross contamination. So, having access to a large refrigerator, full stove and oven was... More

We had the most wonderful stay at this resort. The staff and accommodations were truly wonderful. Spectacular restaurant, beach and pool area. The staff was very helpful and accommodating for any car reservations, tour or excursion reservations or recommendations. We will most certainly be back next summer. We recommend the wave runner tour and renting a boat for a day... More

Major Kudos to Jodi and the entire staff at Grand Isle. We had a very enjoyable 7 night stay. The service was exceptional, with a special shout out to Marchello (Concierge) and Eduardo (Behind the Bar). We had a three bedroom villa with an ocean view ... what a beautiful view from the king bedroom and both balconies. The villa... More

We recently stayed at the Grand Isle Resort and Spa.Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted to this tropical paradise. We stayed in a one bedroom suite that had a fabulous view of the ocean as well as overlooking the marina and a hole on the golf course. Each unit has a golf cart for easy transport around the resort.... More

Excellent accommodations, idyllic setting, superb service. Thoroughly enjoyed the Spa facilities and the local excursion to swim with the pigs and see the iguanas. One of the most relaxing vacations ever. Would definitely return.

My kids (11,13) and I just had a great stay at Grand Isle. The villas are luxurious and the beds are great. We were in an ocean view 2 bedroom and would have liked an ocean front, but oh well. The beach is very pretty. It was a little too windy for paddle boarding or much kayaking, which would otherwise... More

The villa was stunning. The water was the clearest I have seen anywhere. The ocean is so blue the sea gulls reflect the color of the ocean as they fly overhead. Not a lot to do on Exuma. However the accommodations are second to none. Relax..Relax..Relax.. The golf cart assigned to each unit is an added treat. The meal are... More

The villa we stayed in was amazing, fully equipped with everything and anything you might need. Staff was courteous, food was good, beach was nice, I can see why they are #1 on Trip Advisor! However, those looking to boat around the exumas must know this hotel is far... far from the marina, far from the tour agencies, far from... More

Secluded luxury in natures paradise. This is upscale and comfortable. Every Villa comes with a Golf cart. Splurge for the ocean view. The beds are wonderful. Have dinner one night at the Palpaya grill. Rent a car for sure. Walk on the beach and go to the infinity pool. Great location to take daily excursions. You will love this place
