Two things I was unhappy with: our listed complimentary shuttle was a $20 one way taxi ride. The menu at Pallappa Grill is very limited.
The rest couldn’t be better: the minute we arrived, I was very impressed. Villa’s were clean, inviting and well-appointed. Manicured grounds, attentive staff, nice spa service and delicious food dishes. Chef Ann prepared the best steaks and I LOVE her peas and rice. My hubby enjoyed Ann’s burgers.
Yes, we like to eat… lunch and dinner at the Grill each night we stayed. Flies became an issue during lunch so some days we‘d take it to go. We choose not to rent a vehicle when visiting the islands but we enjoyed the golf cart to frequent the local store (confusing at first, it’s actually down the road a bit then across the street). We tried almost everything on Pallappa's menu so took a taxi to Georgetown our last day there. If we return to Exuma we’ll probably stay closer to "downtown", but overall I’m very pleased with our stay at Grand Isle!
Oh, I refused to pay $360 for a day pass to eat at Sandals.
