I will be dreaming of Santanna's until we meet again! We tried the shrimp, grouper, and lobster....all mouthwatering!! You are sitting right at the beach as well. I cannot wait to visit again!

If you count the cost of the car rental or taxi to get here in with the price of the meal it is a pretty expensive meal - AND WORTH EVERY PENNY! Santana's has been the deciding factor in our choosing which Sandals we will visit (Emerald Bay), and we have seriously rented a car just for this purpose -... More

Folks on the Sandals Emerald Bay Facebook Fan Page had been talking about this, so we found a time in our time on Great Exuma to make the pilgrimage. Rent a car - a taxi will costs you $100 each way. A car will be around $75 and then you'll be able to stop in Georgetown, the Tropic of Cancer... More

We went to Santanna's twice during our week stay and by far the best food on the island. We had the flashed fried lobster and then the grouper. Both fantastic. I love their beach and the rum cake that Momma makes next door. Planning a trip to go back next summer just to go back to Santanna's. Yes I love... More

My wife and I got back from Little Exuma today and Santanna's is a must stop! The lobster is as good as advertised. We each got our own plate and the Lobster was HUGE! Covered in yummy onions and served with slaw, corn and rice, it was just enough food. Even better, the lobster is caught fresh daily and at... More

My husband and I had lunch at Santana's on a Tuesday and there were only us and another couple there. The food is very good and the view is amazing. We got to see the pictures from when they were filming the Pirates of the Caribbean. While the food was being prepared I decided to go swimming in the ocean,... More

Beautiful scenery, right on the water. Best food, make the trip you won't be sorry. We rented a van with 2 other couples. Made a visit to Cancer beach, then Santanna's. Much cheaper than a taxi. I think we may have seen 7 cars on the road the whole trip. Very easy to navigate.

What a great place to eat, drink and soak in the views of the beach and ocean. The portions are huge and very very fresh. You'll want someone to share your meal with. I had the lobster and it came with two tails which I struggled to get through while enjoying the spectacular rice along with the grilled onions and... More
