This is a beautiful property. The rooms are amazing, the grounds & pool are spotless. We are a family of 4 with the "kids" being 19 & 25 were comfortable in the 2 bedroom. We were able to check in early & Emerson was helpful and friendly! Our reservation had a discrepancy and it was fixed right away. I had... More

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

My family (2 teenagers and my husband) stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. The food was great, the beach beautiful and our room (condo) had an ocean view and was very spacious. The pool area is beautful and the concierge was more than willing to confirm excursion reservations I had made (not through them). Each villa comes with... More

Amazing! Probably would not spend so much money ever again, but for a once in a marriage trip, this was all we could have asked for!

I was extremely excited to come to the Grand Isle after spending months looking at pictures online of the place and it's safe to say I wasn't one bit disappointed. The place is amazing and the photos actually don't do the place justice. The water is so blue and the sand is so white that it's difficult to capture it... More

Grand Isle is a nice resort at one end of Emerald Bay. Sandals is in the center of the mile long stretch of beach and the far opposite end is quiet with only the few who walk down there. For us it was worth the effort to trek to the opposite end every day because the water was calmer the... More

Before reviewing grand isle I think I need to do a little review of exuma because I wish I had known more before I had visited. Exuma is VERY undeveloped. We have visited many Caribbean islands and I was expecting it to be kinda like Turks and Caicos but it was not at all. There are only two big resorts... More
