This is an absolutely beautiful resort in a breathtaking setting. The villas are gorgeous and well equipped (washer/dryer, dishwasher, coffee maker/coffee, full kitchen, etc etc!), comfortable, and the grounds are beautifully maintained. We visited during the last week of August, which was a slow week, so a few things were closed, but it felt like we had the place to ourselves, which was amazing. If you’re looking for a place with a lot of activities and things to do for younger children, this may not be the best place for you; I visited with my 11 year old daughter and we absolutely loved the quiet and relaxation. We rented a car for a couple of days to drive around the island and to Little Exuma, which was a great experience. Highly recommend Coco Plum beach, which is gorgeous and only about a 15 minute drive away. We also did a half day excursion with Exuma Water Sports and visited the swimming pigs, iguanas, and a blue hole - also a great experience.

On top of the absolutely gorgeous location and accommodations, I can’t say enough about how helpful, friendly and wonderful the staff were at the Grand Isle. Concierges Marjorie and Sherry in particular took such wonderful care of us prior to our arrival and during our stay. It was a beautiful vacation and I would highly recommend to anyone!

Room tip: Take advantage of grocery pre-ordering or rent a car early in your stay to stock up on groceries if you plan to eat often in your villa.

Greetings Dianne,

Exuma is the perfect retreat for mother-daughter retreats, and we are thrilled to learn that you and yours had such a spectacular visit. We applaud you for your sense of adventure and we are thrilled to learn that you so enjoyed the various excursions. The swimming pigs is one of our favorites and we trust endless photos were captured so that the afternoon can long be treasured by you both.

While many would say that our beaches are unrivaled and our residential style accommodations an instant appeal, we have long believed that is really the genuine hospitality provided by our Grand Isle colleagues which brings guests back time and again. Your kind words regarding Sherry and Marjorie further affirm that sentiment and we look forward to celebrating your feedback with those mentioned as well as our greater team.

On behalf of your many friends at the resort, the pleasure was truly ours and we trust this is a vacation that may be repeated in the years to come. We look forward to your return and we invite you to be in touch if we can assist in planning your return.

Warm regards,

Dean Spychalla

My family stayed here in August 2022 and we loved every minute. The resort has everything plus nicely appointed units with a full kitchen and laundry. It's located on a quiet bay with water sports and snorkeling. I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay again.

Dear 626janat,

As you likely discovered, our residential style accommodations are ideal for those who wish to plan a two- or three-week beachfront retreat in the Caribbean, and with the hybrid and work-remote shifts still in place for many, what could be better than attending that morning conference call with the Atlantic ocean just steps away. Shorter stays and long weekends are also an option and no matter the duration, we take great joy in creating experiences just like those enjoyed by your family.

We thank you for spreading the word about your treasured experience. On behalf of your many Grand Isle friends, the pleasure was fully ours and we trust you are looking forward to your return just as much as we are.

Warm regards,

Dean Spychalla

We just returned from our trip staying at Grand Isle Resort Grand Exuma. , wow is all I have to say. It’s a stunning property that sits on an amazing beautiful beach called Emerald Bay. The staff was so accommodating, kind, and went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. The operations manager Adam also goes out of his way to make sure all of the guests are happy and enjoying themselves. I can’t say enough great things about this place. We had a one bedroom Oceanview villa that was just spectacularly decorated, spacious, and you just couldn’t beat the view. Food was excellent. It’s just a special place that I encourage everyone to visit.
Below is a few of the stunning beach this property sits on. Highly recommend it

Kevica and Shelly were both wonderful…sure we have experienced a spa experience but when u add Kevica and Shelly it rises to an entire different level. They get a 5 star rating. They r so warm, welcoming and hospitable. They r well groom and in order as far as appearance. You can tell their love language is acts of service because they really embrace what they do. They made my daughters feel like queens on a royal pedestal. Thank u!!! Excellent work Ladies!!

Dear shelanah2022,

We applaud you for spoiling yourselves with a treatment at Seastar Spa and we thank you for letting us know that the afternoon was well enjoyed. Kevica and Shelly are two of our many gems and both Spa attendants were beaming with pride when we celebrated your review with them earlier today.

On behalf of your many friends at the resort, the pleasure was fully ours and we hope Exuma is a destination you will visit time and again for many years to come. If we can offer our assistance in planning your next beachside escape, we invite you to be in touch.

Wonderful place. Can't wait to come back. Our 2-bedroom villa was beautiful with plenty of amenities and the view was stunning. Kids loved driving the golf cart that comes with each villa. We rented a car to explore the island but one could easily spend the entire vacation here.
