We just returned from a fabulous 10 day vacation staying at Exuma Palms Hotel.
The location is magnificent. Island is beautiful, lots of things to do for everybody from snorkeling, swimming, and frolicking in the water to visiting local restaurants (they are expensive and mostly fried food though).
The property needs some work - the steps to the beach are broken and you need to use your skills to help yourself among the stones. That must be brought to Fred's (owner) attention - it may become an unpleasant situation if somebody falls trying to use them... Also, there are some lose wooden panels left to the main stairs..
However, the staff is outstanding. They do everything to satisfy your every need. They are truly amazing people who want to make sure you are having a great time given the some property flaws.
We were promised that the place would become better. If that is true, we are definitely coming back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are a new hotel on Exuma, in the midst of a transition, striving to bring you casual but fine dining, ensuring you have fun, minimizing your impact on the environment and maybe teaching you something along the way. Our on-site marine biologist Nicole will be happy to assist you in your personal discovery of the local flora and fauna. She has also implemented many environmental reforms guiding the resort to a more sustainable and harmonious place without hindering quality nor comfort. Because her passion lies with the ocean, Nicole is very knowledgeable about the marine environment and is willing to help you organize excursions. You can experience the world famous swimming pigs, James Bond's Thunderball Grotto, the world's oldest marine conservation park or discover the life beneath the turquoise, clear water. We want you to have a nice, relaxing holiday, enjoying local customs and activities, but ultimately coming back to the comfort of your ocean view room with private balcony. Here you can enjoy coffee in the morning or Caribbean cocktails as the sun sets. We would love to share our passions and values with you, in a way that will only enhance your vacation, leaving your footprints in the pristine white sand, and not on the environment. We are not a chain hotel, therefore we offer the ultimate personalized experience for every guest, including young adventurers. We look forward to sharing our piece of paradise with you, and your visit. ... more less
