I visited on a girls-only trip with family while going through a painful divorce. It was just what I needed to relax and recharge. The resort grounds are beautiful and impeccable. The staff was extremely friendly and always very helpful to answer questions about the resort, local cocktails to try, and activities around the island. The villas are beautifully appointed... More

My husband and I recently (July) stayed at Grand Isle to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. I am sure my review will not completely do this place justice. The Grand Isle is absolutely exquisite. If you are contemplating choosing this resort, don't contemplate any longer. This is arguably the best resort on the island. This island is beautiful and this... More

We stayed at Grand Isle in mid August. I booked the vacation to swim with the pigs of course, but the whole experience was SO MUCH BETTER than just pigs! Grand Isle is stunning - small, unique and beautiful. The villas have fully equipped kitchens, so bring food from home and cook some meals. The restaurant is good but it... More

I came here mainly to see Pig Island and booked this hotel not know hie gorgeous it really was. The rooms are town homes decorated beautifully and the people couldn't be any nicer and the amenities are superb. This is more like a 10 STAR hotel! I though maybe a time share but I was wrong. The restaurant is amazing... More

Loved the villa, the restaurant, pool and beach. The staff was friendly and helpful. We used the snorkels, paddle boards and kayaks. If you're going to Exuma this is the place to stay! We will be back.

The resort is very well kept. Beautiful surroundings, gardens and beach. The pool is lovely. The villas are very well equiped ( all you can ask in kitchen utensils) very spacious. Very clean. However, my personal experience wasn't so perfect. We went with 2 children ( 1 baby and a pre teenager), we arrived at 14, and we were very... More

Our 3 bedroom ocean-view villa was absolutely beautiful - the rooms were all great, it was hard to decide which was nicest! The kitchen had every appliance and gadget you could think of and wish for...except egg cups! The resort is very quiet and relaxing, lovely restaurant and amazing beach. Do it!

While in Great Exuma, my wife and twin 16 year old boys stayed at the Grand Isle Resort . The property has its beach and golf course shared with another hotel. Each villa has the opportunity to rent a golf cart for the duration of your stay ($15 a day). It's both fun and relaxing. I highly recommend this option.... More

From the moment we arrived at Grand Isle Resort, we were warmly welcomed at the front gate, as well as at Reception. There were six of us, so we rented a 3-bedroom villa with an ocean view. Far better than a hotel, we had more than enough space, balconies and the living room was an added bonus that we most... More
