I am delighted to share my experience at Grand Isle. Of course the setting and accommodations are beautiful, but what stood out most was the over-the-top service. Everywhere you look, the grounds are immaculate and the staff is so friendly and welcoming. Most noted was the service at the poolside restaurant, Palapa, managed by Jimeon. He was so professional, genuine... More

The accommodations seemed like they intended to spoil and pamper us during our stay. The staff is friendly and kind (especially the front desk staff...Angelo, Walleacher and Dee Dee). If you really want a beautiful, relaxing getaway... Grand Isle Resort is worth every penny.

Absolutely gorgeous. The rooms are full sized townhomes and I could not have asked for more. You can rent a golf cart and park it in your own mini garage. I recommend getting one to view the stunning landscape and golf course areas. The full sized kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. There are a few local convenience... More

We stayed for 4 nights in a 2 bedroom garden view villa. The villa was well set up and much bigger than we expected. The air conditioner worked very well, there were ceiling fans in each room and the included shampoo, conditioner, soap and lotion was nice quality. The towels were thick and luxurious.

It is our last day in exuma and time for a review: Exuma: amazing island with many hidden and wonderful beaches, crystal clear water and white sand. Never seen such beaches before. It is easy to navigate as there is only one main road going north/south. Shops/foodstores/liquor stores quite expensive. Everyone very friendly. If you want to explore the island... More
