We stayed in a 3 bedroom oceanfront Villa 1011 on the far end of the resort, so no neighbors on our left. It was beautifully appointed with lovely french toiletries, fancy glassware, and every kitchen gadget imaginable. It was spotlessly clean. The grocery delivery service and golf cart rental were wonderful. Can't say enough about the people working at this...

Dear Adventurer957, Thank you for the lovely review and for being so forgiving of the power outage which is rare on our island! You went out on one of the best tours the island has to offer the half day tour with Exuma Water Sports is clearly a top on the to-do list. That is unless you really want to...

Top notch accommodations, supported by an amazing staff. From the front desk team, to Mr.Troy by the beach and pool, everyone was genuinely friendly and concerned about ensuring everything was taken care of to highest level of service. The term "family," was used we believe it!

What a great place! If you can, go in the off-season! We had great weather and a small number of other guests at the resort but still the same attention and kindness you'd expect from an on-season visit. We loved it here!
