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

We had a one bedroom and there was so much space for the 2 of us. The kitchen was fully equipped, and it had a nice balcony. The bathroom was huge, and there was a... More

Grand Isle is a beautiful Resort with a very tropical upscale feeling. As soon as you arrive you will have the feeling of "wow" this is great! Our Bahia Mar 2 bed was very well appointed , had great wifi and anything you would need in the kitchen. If you have to choose between Sandals and Grand Isle this would... More

Love! Love! This place. Accommodations are fabulous. Pool great, beach unbelievable. Only downfall is only 1 restaurant - which is good, but no others close. Recc having groceries delivered ahead of time for fee. Cost of fee is cheaper than the round trip cab fare of 112.00 plus tip to get to grocery store.

My husband and I chose Exuma for our wedding destination without stepping foot on the island beforehand and the Grand Isle Resort exceeded all of our expectations by far. The wedding was just the two of us – we wanted a romantic beach wedding with no stress and the Grand Isle delivered that and more. I had communicated with Claudine,... More

I read many reviews of this hotel and they helped me a lot, so I wanted to continue and help others with my very own review. We (two couples in early 30's) just got back yesterday and I couldn't wait to write a review because everything was superb and I believe that this resort DESERVES the credit! We did check... More
