We really had no idea how awesome our trip would be. I surprised my girlfriend (stole her passport and told her to pack light but to pack for a beach vibe)...well we were both surprised by how awesome it was. If you read a negative review on here, forget it and book it...as long as a cottage is available. We... More

My husband and I holidayed to Great Exuma for our honeymoon and took a full day boat trip which included stopping for lunch at Staniel Cay Yacht Club. The grounds and dock area are just beautiful and extremely well kempt. The bar area of the yacht club is what I would consider as a tourist to be 'authentic Bahamian' -... More

Let me start off by saying that I have visited the Exumas 3 times. This was my first time staying on Staniel Cay, and I chose to stay at SCYC. The staff are very friendly and willing to help in anyway they can. The food from the lunch and bar menu is average. The dinner meal for those staying at... More

We traveled by private plane and the airport was closed by the government so the resort had no control over that and did try to accommodate for transportation by ferry from the nearest island airport. We had to get our own transportation or wait for hours for the next shuttle but it was worth it when we got to the... More

We stayed two nites and just got back. It was fabulous. The rooms were very nice s we stayed in the Blue and the Key Lime cottages. The food at the yacht club was beyond compare. Try the lobster, biggest ever for $42. This included a soup, salad, lobster, veges, and dessert. Wow, and the breakfast french toast and pancakes... More

This review is a bit overdue, as we stayed in December, for eight days, through Christmas Eve. There is rarely a day goes by that I don't think about Staniel Cay, and there's no doubt we will return as soon as we can. From the moment we arrived we found ourselves relaxed and unhurried, it is the kind of place... More

If you want Monaco do not go to Staniel Cay but if you want good food, awesome deserted beaches, crystal clear water and wonderful boating with no big hype just natural beauty then I know of no better holiday than Staniel Cay Yatch Club. I was there in December 2014 and the weather was definitely warm enough to swim and... More

If you are looking for 'total time out' Staniel Cay is the answer. Pristine waters, beautiful beaches and the best 'resort' you could ask for. Keeping the feel very Bahamian, the cottages are more than you need as you spend all your time outdoors. The food is great, the staff are fun. Get your cooler full of goodies and the... More

What a great place! If you want to disconnect and relax and see some awesome blue waters and beautiful wildlife this is the place to go. The staff is soooo friendly and helps with any needs. Great restaurant and awesome marina. This is a place I will return many times to reenergize and reload. The exumas and the surrounding deserted... More

As everyone else has said, the setting for this place is breath taking. Most cottages re on the water. We stayed 2 nights, before and after a 7 day kayak adventure with Spirit of the West. First night we stayed in the Periwinkle cottage. It is a 2 story cottage that would sleep 4 adults easily. It has 2 full... More
