We stayed at Exuma Palms for five nights at the end of may / beginning of june and had a great time. This is a place for people who want to get away from big resorts and cruise ships, and for travellers who like to explore and are not fussy. Don't expect 5 star rooms but they are clean, big, and very very comfortable. There's satellite tv and towels etc are changed everyday. We were very happy with the room and the place is very affordable. You get your own balcony overlooking the beach. It's perfect, we don't ask for anything more. The food is amazing. Ben is a great chef. Hosts ben and clare are fantastic, and did everything they could to make us feel comfortable even though we had two bad days of weather. The beach is absolutely stunning, and great for a morning swim/run if your into that. You can walk down without seeing a single person. I would suggest you rent a car - you will most definitely need it to get around and taxi's are ridiculously expensive! Ben is very knowledgeable about the island and will give you some tips to go to other beaches around the island, which, again, are stunning and your likely not to see a footprint in the sand. Exuma is an island you need to explore - if you like sitting in a hotel room, swimming in a pool and being constantly catered for don't stay here. To be honest if that's what you want, you probably shouldn't even be on Exuma at all. The place is absolutely stunning, we had a great time. Highly recommended!
