Stainless steel appliances. Ensuite bath in master bedroom containing a jetted tub, separate shower and double sinks. Washer and dryer in unit with spectacular views of the ocean...

Saeed, Caudero, and Dedrigh helped me retrieve a necklace I forgot at the resort. Exuma people are wonderful people, with great appreciation for tourists. We loved Grand Isle and will be coming back! Thank you to all the wonderful staff at the restaurant and pool as well. Intimate and relaxing vacation. Many thanks.

I think this hotel has tremendous potential but still needs help. The water makes up for the lack of some of its services but if they get it together it could be really amazing. I am a 5 star traveler so please realize I'm very critical of hotels but also know what I'm talking about. Arrival Staff tells me drinks...

Excellent! The 5 of us stayed for 6 days. The staff were all extremely helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the restaurant and service. The pool was relaxing, and the beach quiet. We loved snorkeling, paddle boarding, and kayaking all from the resort. Thank you!

We stayed at the Grand Isle for a week at the end of Feb 2017. The property is beautiful and the staff all very friendly. I can't say enough about how great the food was and how the chef and staff went out of their way to handle my food allergies. It was a truly memorable vacation and a big...

The restaurant is amazing, the service is very professional and the villa was beautiful. Try the kid's mac and cheese, the cobb salad-best food on the island. The beach is wonderful. They do not have a hot tub-only setback on a rainy day. However, Sandals is just a walk down the beach and you can purchase a day pass there...

Stopped in at Palapa Grill for lunch and also walked the grounds, went to the beach, etc. The grounds are nice especially with the elevated views out across the ocean and the length of beach that leads to Sandals.
