Authentic, exotic and sublime

Immerse yourself in authentic Bahamas at the Grand Isle Resort, set on the ivory sands of Emerald Bay overlooking the brilliant turquoise Exuma waters.  Welcoming couples and families alike with a low-key and relaxed atmosphere, this exotic paradise immediately sets you at ease, whilst the tropical grounds blend seamlessly into the surrounding tropical landscape.

The resort offers a wide range of activities both on and off-site, you can skim across the crystal sea with the complimentary kayaks and paddleboards or feed the local stingrays. Alternatively keep your feet on dry land with a treasure hunt or beach bonfire. Take it down a gear and stretch out next to the resort’s infinity pool with a signature cocktail before restoring the body and mind in the SeaStar Spa with one of the many treatments on offer.

The Grand Isle Resort is a sun-kissed tropical haven, surrounded by natural beauty with friendly and attentive staff. Soak up the magnificent views, sip on a cocktail and savour the memories that will last a lifetime.

Less than desirable experience

Pros - gorgeous beach - food at 23 North especially fish tacos and rice noodles - villas were beautiful Cons - very poor service and staff that was consistently indifferent to serving customers ( we heard many many “no’s” to reasonable requests that would be included in service in the US) - no flexibility to accommodate any change in food other than menu (for example: I asked for just pineapple on the side instead of an entire fruit plate and they absolutely refused) - they didn’t clarify that breakfast included was only up to $30 pp despite the fact that we asked 5 separate times (and were told we could order “anything” off the menu) and then ended up billing us for everything we ordered. We were able to resolve this and they covered the cost but this could have been avoided had they been clear upfront. It was rather unpleasant to sort this mess. - weird hours for facilities such as the adult only pool - 12-5 pm - no towels allowed from adult pool to villa - sand flies at this time of the year (everywhere on the island, not just this resort) - they refused cabanas on a super rainy day (we used the pool to make the most of a rainy day and got under the cabanas only when it was pouring heavily, but they asked us to leave or pay up) All in all, I wouldn’t recommend this property.

Family Vacation

Argyle Shore, Canada

OMG! Our trip was so great! Crystal and Kevica are the best at the front desk! We had a rough travel day and first night and then I went to complain about our room and met Crystal. She took care of us and really changed our whole trip into an awesome trip for the rest of the time! The rooms are big a spacious and service was good! The pools and beach were great but I think what really puts this property over the top is the ADULT POOL. It’s right by the ocean and has the chairs built into the beach area of the was the bomb! Que & Davon took really good care of us down there as well! I can’t wait to come back to this paradise! We will bring bug spray with us next time.
