We had never been to Great Exuma before and our choice to stay at The Exuma Palms Hotel could not have been better. Ben and Clare (our hosts and the owners) have taken great care to makeover this marvelous 2-story hotel and have worked to make it an enjoyable place to rest, relax and revive. An amazing location, right on the beach next to 'The Three Sisters Beach', it afforded us a most spectacular view of the ocean; the beach was, literally, a few steps away from our room. Very nice room, complete with a refrigerator and a microwave, had a nice patio with a wonderful view. The A/C worked very well, (they've installed all new units) and the bed was dreamy comfortable. Very clean, comfortable and cozy. The sliding door to the patio was a bit of a challenge but, it worked fine once we got the hang of it. Very friendly staff that made us feel very welcome, but the main attraction has to be their on-site restaurant! 'blu' is an absolutely delightful dining experience! Ben is a wizard in the kitchen and loves what he does. The meals were superb (we were there in July '13 and in the summer they serve breakfast and dinner) and Clare and her dining and bar staff did a totally top notch job of keeping us well looked after. Clare and Ben also helped with getting us hooked up with a good bonefishing guide and a snorkel charter, as well as making suggestions for day trips and we also enjoyed those excursions. A wonderful stay, with two wonderful hosts/owners, and we are looking forward to a trip back to the Exuma Palms Hotel, in the not too distant future. Here's a little tip, which we were given before we traveled to Great Exumas; you're going to want to rent a car. There is plenty of parking at the Hotel, so not to worry.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are a new hotel on Exuma, in the midst of a transition, striving to bring you casual but fine dining, ensuring you have fun, minimizing your impact on the environment and maybe teaching you something along the way. Our on-site marine biologist Nicole will be happy to assist you in your personal discovery of the local flora and fauna. She has also implemented many environmental reforms guiding the resort to a more sustainable and harmonious place without hindering quality nor comfort. Because her passion lies with the ocean, Nicole is very knowledgeable about the marine environment and is willing to help you organize excursions. You can experience the world famous swimming pigs, James Bond's Thunderball Grotto, the world's oldest marine conservation park or discover the life beneath the turquoise, clear water. We want you to have a nice, relaxing holiday, enjoying local customs and activities, but ultimately coming back to the comfort of your ocean view room with private balcony. Here you can enjoy coffee in the morning or Caribbean cocktails as the sun sets. We would love to share our passions and values with you, in a way that will only enhance your vacation, leaving your footprints in the pristine white sand, and not on the environment. We are not a chain hotel, therefore we offer the ultimate personalized experience for every guest, including young adventurers. We look forward to sharing our piece of paradise with you, and your visit. ... more less
