We had an excellent time! Obie Cheryl was spectacular at the front desk. We have nothing bad to say. Everything from the rooms to the service to the food and the beaches were great! We used Exuma water sports for a 1/2 day excursion(swimming with the pigs) and that was great too! Will return!!!

The place is beautiful, beach amazing and top golf course very close. Rooms are big, new and very comfortable. The 5 star did not happen in my case due to service beyond expectations. House keeping kept missing the extra towels, room service hard to get, slow and very limited, food below average. Besides, I had a personal problem and had...

Sad to see how much plastic & trash float up despite daily sand raking. Visited 7 years ago, this was not a problem. Sandals (shared beach) keep there side more picked...

Dear Nique301, So happy to hear you had a great return trip to Grand Isle Resort. It is so interesting that you mention our calm bay! I always know it was a lovely bay but realize more then ever how calm it is after moving near Tar Bay which for the past week has not been an ideal place to...

Our family of 6 and grandma stayed here for spring break for a week. The hotel is very nice overall. Our suite was clean and offered a lot of space. The pool is nice and the beach is beautiful. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. The only complaint we had is that the food is average at best. We...

Just got back from a 4 night stay (should have been a 5 night stay) at the Grand Isle Resort.

I cannot say enough about our stay at the Grand Isle. We were completely shocked by our 2 bedroom unit. We had anticipated a suite, but instead it was like a house! Two story, complete condo with exquisite views (we did ocean front), full kitchen, washer/dryer, two and a half baths. Truly beautiful. We did arrange transfers with the hotel...

Dear Dee M, We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and that we were able to exceed your expectations. Can you believe the resort is almost 100 full? Yes its true, it just that people go many different ways, some cook in the villa, dine out or at Palapa Grill. Then during the day they are either fishing,...

The rooms at the Grand Isles are spacious and well appointed. Our condo was clean and comfortable and came with a golf cart to ride around the property (which you don't really need as the property is small). The one restaurant on site serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and the food is good quality and reasonable. They even have GF...
