I knew about this island back in the 90's before it was developed. We used to anchor in Big Majors and I used to think what a great piece of property this was. I was pleased to have found that someone felt the same way I did. The Browns did a more than remarkable job building the perfect blend of luxury and family friendly, and their vision is still evident today, even under the new ownership.

We spent a week with our two young children (1 and 3) and my parents in Blue Moon. The staff grabbed our kids the moment we arrived and treated them as their own. I probably did too much research on the property before we left, and I was still amazed at how much better in person the resort was.

You can read all about the water, the food, the service, the boats, etc. in other reviews. It is just as described. I spent many years on yachts and the only way I can describe Fowl is that it is like chartering a yacht on land. The service, attention to detail, anticipation of your wants and needs is exceptional.

Jump in your fully stocked boat (cooler of drinks, snacks, lobster sandwiches, etc.) play on the beach, island hop, etc. come back, throw them the keys and presto, your boat is cleaned, restocked, refueled and ready for the next day, all while you relax poolside or lounge around your villa. Its great catching up with the other guests at night during cocktail hour, and the dinners are as good as the other reviews state.

We booked for next year the week we returned and have enjoyed the photos that have been shared from the staff once we left. A side note, we lost a very nondescript underwater camera with photos we desperately wanted. Yes, of course it was found and mailed to us. When my sons kite went down in a afternoon squall, it was found and brought back to the house.

Yves, Marta, Nicole and Grant (not to mention the other staff) are a remarkable group of people. We selfishly hope that they will stay for a very long time and will be able to see our kids grow up in what we feel is one of the greatest places on earth!

We just returned from our second trip to Fowl Cay. This is the best vacation spot on Earth. The
water is unbelievable and the staff even better. The days spent on the water stopping at
secluded beaches for lunch or just to laze in the crystal clear water is just fantastic. To top the
day off, returning for gourmet dinners every night at the Hill house was icing on the cake. We stayed at Sweetwater, everything first rate. Thanks to Yves and Marta, Grant and Nicole for
a great time.

I don't know where to start! Fowl Cay Resort was an experience like we have never had! It is pure paradise and more! The Managers and Staff treated you not only with fabulous customer service, but as part of their family during our entire stay. The Villa we stayed at (The Lindon) was gorgeous and beautifully maintained and fully stocked with every amenity (comfort, food, and drink) that you could think of. Every morning we woke up to fresh fruit, coffee, and other delicious treats and waiting for us! The biggest decision for us was, "What were we going to do?". From the boat that each Villa gets to use, to the beautiful beaches at the Resort, to relaxing at our Villa, you could determine your own pace. A delicious picnic was made for us each day if we wanted it to take to the beach, hop on the boat at eat it at another destination or beach, or delivered to our Villa. The evening dining at The Hill House was 5 star! The food created by the Chef's was amazing, perfectly prepared with explosive flavors. Everyday was a new experience with next day being more amazing than the next. All in all, I can go on about each and every individual thing great about Fowl Cay Resort, but the biggest compliment I pay to not only the Resort but also the the management and staff is, WE WILL BE BACK! Hands down, without a doubt, Fowl Cay Resort is the most magnificent resort/vacation/experience that we have had and that everyone should experience in their lifetime. Words can't say enough to describe the experience the Staff provided us along with this beautiful resort on its own private island. Thank you all again for an amazing experience!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Lindon Villa, Absolutely great!

We were at Fowl Cay a year ago and decided to return with friends that wanted the experience as well. The previous time we stayed in the Lindon Cottage as there were just the two of us. This trip we stayed in the Bird Cage and again had the time of our life! The Bird Cage is a great villa if you want an almost 360 degree view of the beautiful waters. We never had an issue with noise or too much water traffic. In fact it was fun to watch the occasional Jet Ski travel the cut in between the islands.

The scenery and fun things to do while enjoying your own boat are just some of the great parts of Fowl Cay. We did the usual and fed the pigs at Big Major, swam with the sharks at Compass Cay, went to Thunderball Grotto and many other fun things. Most importantly, the staff at Fowl Cay does everything they can to make your stay the best vacation experience ever. You're always greeted with a smile and someone wanting to know what they can do for you.

We never wanted for anything while we were there. All of our meals were prepared as we wished. Fresh pastries and fruit are delivered each morning. You always have the opportunity to make a larger breakfast with the stocked items in the kitchen. Picnic lunches are prepared for your daily outing and consist of great sandwiches and plenty of fruit and snacks. For dinner you're always given a choice of a fish or meat with artfully prepared sides.

The staff does a great job in everything they do to accomplish the difficult task of running an island. When you arrive and look around at the logistics to get food, fuel, items for fully stocked homes, non stop electricity on generators, and the many other supplies that it takes to run a resort, it's amazing! I think you'll agree when you're sitting in one of the most beautiful spots in the world enjoying your coffee, it will be the best cup of coffee you've ever had!

We just left 7 days in the beautiful Exuma Cays and found it to be amazing at Fowl Cay Resort. The island was everything we had envisioned it to be and more and the surrounding turquoise waters were incredible and left us planning our next visit. The entire staff was so accommodating, kind, welcoming and treated us like we were family right from the start of our vacation. Our villa was spacious and fully stocked with food and drinks and all the amenities we could need to satisfy our party of 2 parents and 4 teenagers. The food at the Hillhouse island restaurant was artfully prepared, delicious and varied in cuisine and they were happy to prepare our very own fresh catch of the day as a part of our meal. We even enjoyed karaoke one night with the talented staff who sang for the guests. We hired an incredible local favorite fisherman from nearby Staniel Cay named Cliff Smith who took us out for bone fishing, deep sea fishing, and to explore sand bars and island caves that he knows well. Aside from our guide, our villa included our very own boat to use to explore all the local attractions and that was so much fun for all of us. Thank you, everyone at Fowl Cay, for making our wedding anniversary trip so special. We look forward to a return to paradise soon!
