The accommodations are fantastic. Well appointed villas, very nice furnishings and finishes. In fact the whole resort is nicely presented, the pool, the beach, the palms and the lawns, everything is well made and properly looked after, and spotlessly clean. Perfect!

My husband and I just got back from a three night stay at Grand Isle Resort and I can not say enough good things about our stay. We were impressed from the moment we saw the front gates. Check in was a breeze and we were driven to our villa in a golf cart. I highly recommend renting one for... More

A great Out Islands destination. Exuma is a beautiful island with pristine beaches and turquoise blue water. There are no crowds and the locals are very friendly and accommodating. The 3 bedroom villa is nicer than my home. I did not want to leave. Recommend doing some groceries at the big supermarket in Georgetown as there is nothing within walking... More

We usually do not go to the same place twice because we always like to go to new places for our family vacations. But we will definitely come back here. Our 9 year old and 2 teens are having a wonderful time, just enough adventures but also relaxing time. It's quiet and everyone's friendly!

Friends, Luxury is synonymous with service in most parts of the world but NOT in Exuma and definitely not here at the Grand Isle. Re calibrate your expectations. The hotel is beautiful (ie. the actual room finish out) but do not expect a high level of service here. Check in: FYI - Check in is at 4pm (checkout is 10am... More

Couldn't have asked for a better villa, 3 BR, 3 bath for our trip. Beautiful views, Emerald Bay is stunning. The grounds were perfect and well maintained, enjoyed the spa and the restaurant. You will need to take a taxi to get to other activities and restaurants on the island, so count in that expense.

After staying at Breezy Hill (which was lovely) we wanted a bit of luxury and certainly got it at this resort. The villa was stunning and I could easily have lived there for a lot longer than 2 nights.
