Grand Isle is a world class resort within a 1 hour plane flight from Miami. Our experience started with expert assistance from Crystal, an extremely competent concierge, who assisted not only in making a number of arrangements for us, but also sharing tips on things that would make our stay more enjoyable. The property itself is beautiful and meticuously maintained.... More

We were looking for a quiet place to relax for 4 days and could not have been more pleased with Grand Isle. The property itself is beautiful and maintained in top condition. Our unit, an 1 bedroom on the second level overlooking the marina, was furnished to a very high standard and the kitchen had whatever we needed. Everything worked... More

Our villa was fabulous – spacious, clean, well-decorated and furnished, quiet, with a great kitchen. Our rooms were wonderful, too. The kitchen aspect is especially important to me because I have Celiac Disease (strict gluten free diet) and often have to cook for myself to avoid cross contamination. So, having access to a large refrigerator, full stove and oven was... More

We had the most wonderful stay at this resort. The staff and accommodations were truly wonderful. Spectacular restaurant, beach and pool area. The staff was very helpful and accommodating for any car reservations, tour or excursion reservations or recommendations. We will most certainly be back next summer. We recommend the wave runner tour and renting a boat for a day... More

Major Kudos to Jodi and the entire staff at Grand Isle. We had a very enjoyable 7 night stay. The service was exceptional, with a special shout out to Marchello (Concierge) and Eduardo (Behind the Bar). We had a three bedroom villa with an ocean view ... what a beautiful view from the king bedroom and both balconies. The villa... More

Excellent accommodations, idyllic setting, superb service. Thoroughly enjoyed the Spa facilities and the local excursion to swim with the pigs and see the iguanas. One of the most relaxing vacations ever. Would definitely return.

My kids (11,13) and I just had a great stay at Grand Isle. The villas are luxurious and the beds are great. We were in an ocean view 2 bedroom and would have liked an ocean front, but oh well. The beach is very pretty. It was a little too windy for paddle boarding or much kayaking, which would otherwise... More

The villa was stunning. The water was the clearest I have seen anywhere. The ocean is so blue the sea gulls reflect the color of the ocean as they fly overhead. Not a lot to do on Exuma. However the accommodations are second to none. Relax..Relax..Relax.. The golf cart assigned to each unit is an added treat. The meal are... More
