I was incredibly pleased with Jamiel's thoughtfulness and willingness to problem solve concerns raised during our time (my husband and I) at the Grand Isle Resort. His interaction with us during our 7 day stay were genuine and resulted in us definitely planning a return. In addition to great resort management, the picture perfect surroundings in the resort and area...

This is a 5 star resort that has NO concierge on Saturday or Sunday! Have you ever heard of this and they leave by 2:30 on other days so good luck booking a car or tour.

The people you meet play a significant role in defining your vacation. Of course the setting of Grand Isle is pristine and the accommodations are five star, but the best part about this place is the employees and the management. The villas are very clean and beautifully furnished, and the pool/beach area is stunning. I'm certain I can't adequately express...

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!!!
