Resort is beautiful and staff is friendly and attentive. Food is quite good but expensive (as is everything on this island where everything must come by air or water) Beach is stunning, transparent, light blue water and pure white sand. Villa was in great shape and well appointed. Only thing I would like is an option for groceries to be bought in advance and delivered because shopping is very difficult.

We stayed in a three bedroom villa with beachfront view. The villa was beautiful and had everything we needed. I would stay there again if going back to Exuma. The only draw back is you have to eat on property as you are somewhat isolated and it is expensive to get a taxi into Georgetown. The food is just fair but we did not go there to eat so we were fine.

My family gave me the best surprise birthday party. Our party of 8 arrived from Atlanta, Georgia and were greeted with exceptional hospitality and service. The grounds are impeccable, as well as the villas. The turquoise water and white sand beaches are exquisite. We used Luther's Taxi service around the island and Aquadisiac Adventures for a private tour of the outer cays. The concierge desk was helpful in arranging all of our services. I can't wait to come back for another visit!

We loved our stay at Grand Isle! I cannot say enough good things about this hotel! We had a two bedroom, ocean view villa and it was gorgeous and clean. I definitely think the view was worth the money for the ocean view. It was breath-taking and so nice to sit on our balcony at night or to just look at the ocean as we ate any meals in our villa.

This resort on Grand Exuma is a well manicured property with nice paths linking one unit to another. The pool which is contiguous to the restaurant is an infinity pool. The only disadvantage is if you were hoping for a romantic dinner, the pool is a distraction. The staff is very helpful and want their guests to be well taken care of at the pool the beach or in their room. They have kayaks and paddle boards for guests to use as well as towels for the pool or off property excursions. You can... Read more

My primary reason for coming here was to visit the pigs. Yes I love pigs and all wildlife/animals that much to make a trip out of it. Well, we ended up enjoying Exuma and the whole area as much as we did the visit with the pigs. Grand isle resort was beautiful. I would give it 4 1/2 stars if I could. It takes a lot for me to give a hotel/resort a 5. There were only 2 of us, but we stayed in the 2 bedroom just because the view of the ocean was supposed to be better than the 1 bdrm. Honest...

It is our last day in exuma and time for a review: Exuma: amazing island with many hidden and wonderful beaches, crystal clear water and white sand. Never seen such beaches before. It is easy to navigate as there is only one main road going north/south. Shops/foodstores/liquor stores quite expensive. Everyone very friendly.

After staying at Breezy Hill (which was lovely) we wanted a bit of luxury and certainly got it at this resort. The villa was stunning and I could easily have lived there for a lot longer than 2 nights. The pool, restaurant and beach was fabulous and I loved the fact that they supply free snorkels, floats, canoes etc. The only negatives were the fact that you had to cover-up to eat at the pool side restaurant (it's by the pool!) and that they had no covered shower available for after check out. ...

The day tour arranged by the concierge of the surrounding islands, including pig island, was a highlight.

Grand Isle is a nice resort at one end of Emerald Bay. Sandals is in the center of the mile long stretch of beach and the far opposite end is quiet with only the few who walk down there.

6 of us stayed here for 3 days in a large 3 bed/3 bath villa in August. The place is pretty much faultless. My only observation would be that unless you have a car you're pretty much at the resort restaurant for every meal, although to be fair the food is of such high quality that's not exactly a hardship! The beach is without a doubt the best beach I have ever been to or seen in my life and I'm not a huge beach fan. The tour to Pggy Beach with Exuma Watersports is an absolute must.

Without reserve, one of the best times I've had on holiday. My fiance found this place while "surfing the web" for our honeymoon destination. The food was excellent! I can't say enough about the clear waters, great snorkeling,friendly staff, Overall, had a wonderful time and plan to return.

We stayed 3 nights in a one bedroom ocean view villa. Everything was excellent! The unit was practically brand new, very clean and well appointed. The service from all was great-prompt, friendly and enthusiastic. The food at the on-site restaurant was also very good. The only drawback is the resort's location was a little isolated.

The heavens declared the glory. The stars and the moon lit the skies so bright. If you're looking to get away from the rest of the world for some peace and quiet, this is the place. The beach is beautiful, the staff is friendly and helpful, the environment is clean. Also good for retreats and family vacations. Just bring your clothes. I fell asleep at the spa having a pedicure. It was that good! No complaints.

After several traumatic months of cancer treatment, we were in desperate need of rest, relaxation, and healing. The beauty, peace, and luxury of Grand Isle worked its magic on us, and we left after 5 days feeling so much better. The 1-bedroom villa was beautiful, spacious, and well-equipped, with a nice view of the marina. The bed deserves special mention, simply the best I have ever experienced, it was like sleeping on an angel's wing. We liked to wash off the sand and salt in the big jacuz... Read more

This place is amazing! The location, the food, the beach, the pool, the staff, the accommodations, all can't be beat. Also, a great central location to reach the northern cays, downtown Georgetown, and the airport. We can't wait until we can come back. And bring all of our family and friends!

Stopped by for lunch while driving around the island. It was a great. The place was very nice, lunch was good and a great change from a week in a different location (3 star not 5). We ate at the pool bar and the bartender was so friendly and informative. Walked down to the beautiful beach and it was next door to the other big resort Sandals which was closed due to the hurricane. This is the place to come to to be pampered and spoiled.

Booked this place for a long weekend get away having no idea what was in store. What a wonderful place!! The staff was so helpful and kind!! They all really care and want to make it a great stay for every guest. We have to mention the concierge Walleacher- she was awesome and helped us with everything including airport transportation and our tour with exuma water sports! We also loved (not sure spelling) Maldonado, Tamara, Paul, mulva, Angelique and every staff member we came across was just won... Read more

This place is beautiful and roomy. Great for feeling at home. It is clean and well looked after. The main problem with this property is that it is lacking food wise. There is only one restaurant and there is not too much on the menu. After a few days you get tired of the same food. If you want to eat somewhere else, you have to make sure you have rented a car, and the rental cars are all run down, banged up and old. Even on the island itself there are not too many good options for dining out. Th... Read more

All i can say is there is nothing bad to say!!! We rented the 4 bedroom penthouse and there were 6 of us, 3 couples and we were extremely pleased with our stay. The people are super nice. The facility is 5 star plus. I have stayed at some very nice resorts but this is my favorite. 20 minutes from the airport. The most beautiful beach and water you can imagine. I have seen some complaints on here about slow service, maids not coming, maintenance, etc. this was NOT our experience. The maids came e... Read more

We have been all over the Caribbean, but Grand Isle is our favorite resort so far. The rooms and the resort are beautiful. The staff was very friendly and fun, specially, Shug and Paul. Three women cleaned our Condo every morning and it was spotless. The resort is luxurious without being pretentious. The beach was beautiful and snorkeling next to the resort was quite good. The sports massage by Kendra was the best I have ever had at any resort. This is not a place to go if you want the music l... Read more

We stayed at the Grand Isle Resort for one week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The facilities were great, the villas were phenomenal and the service was second to none. We're from the UK and were a little concerned that visiting during Thanksgiving would mean the hotel would be rammed full and too busy but that wasn't the case at all. The beach was practically empty and there was always a free sun-lounger. Our only reservation was the extortionate prices of everything, including the t... Read more

We just returned from a weeklong trip to Great Exuma, and absolutely loved Grand Isle. The staff is friendly, and the resort is beautiful and well maintained. The food is definitely expensive, but that's true everywhere in the Bahamas. However, the quality of the food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) at the restaurant was excellent!! So delicious, the five of us never had one bad meal. At least if it's expensive, it should be worth it, and theirs definitely is. We lucked out in that the nearby Sand... Read more

My husband and I stayed for 6 days recently and had a wonderful time. The beach is gorgeous! We really were impressed by the friendliness of the staff who went out of their way for us. Our villa was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We had hoped to play golf while there but found out when we arrived that Sandals was closed for renovations. The website did not indicate the golf course was closed which would have been nice to know beforehand.
