We weren't sure what to expect, but this place did not disappoint. The price and location are great. Make sure to walk to Jolly Hall beach. Free rentals of kayaks and paddleboards were a plus. We will be coming back!

Consider this before you commit. My husband and I stayed here October 20-26th. The location is perfectly fine as are the units. You should know however that there is a major difference if you rent form a private owner versus the resort itself. We rented from a private owner and were really treated like 2nd class citizens by the resort... More

This hotel is very clean and the rooms are beautiful and big. The food is very good, but like everywhere on Exuma, you'll have to be patient :) There is a lot of choice and even for me as a vegetarian. The beach in front of the hotel is stunning. I would recommend to go to Stocking Island for an... More

Our family of four stayed at Palm Bay for 8 days from the end on July. The resort is well maintained and we found the people at the resort friendly and helpful, especially Latovia, Pitbull, and Vincent. We stayed in #214 which is across the street, a short walk to the beach. The unit was very nice, but we did... More

Laid back and quiet. We stayed in #26 by the smaller pool. It had 2 bathrooms, kitchen, bedroom and pull out sofa. The A/C takes a while to cool but it eventually cools the place off, plus there are ceiling fans as well. I knew not to expect a beautiful beach at the property based on reading the reviews here,...
