I just returned from a 5-day trip to Exuma. Although I have lived in and travelled to Exuma for almost 15 years, it was my first stay at Grand Isles. The homes were clean and beautifully appointed, with fine furniture, beautiful linens, and fully stocked kitchens: large fridge, coffee maker, dishware, cookware, etc. The onsite restaurant, however, was another story: typical slow, apathetic, snail's pace Bahamian service, inadequately trained staff, half-cleaned tables, and plenty of flies. It was not uncommon to have to wait an hour or more for somethiing as simple as eggs and bacon for breakfast -- which isnt a big deal, I guess, if youre on vacation and have all the time in the world!! But if you are there on business, or have a flight to catch, best to give yourself PLENTY of time in the restaurant beforehand, because chances are you are going to be there for a LONG time!! All in all, for the exorbitant prices they charge for their supposed "5-star quaity service", you would expect something much more than 2- star "fish fry quality service."
