We spent five nights at Shanna's Cove in late March. The weather was perfect, and the resort exceeded our expectations. We wanted a quiet place and we got it! We enjoyed miles of perfect beaches, and almost never saw anybody. We walked and swam several miles a day, and read on our balcony. Sleeping at night to the sound of...

This was our 3rd stay at Shannas Cove Resort. The only addition to this review is that our stay was even better. Service is first class plus. Frank and Gabi are First class plus hosts. Staff also are First class plus. We experienced another Chef – Simon – who, in my opinion, is one of the best. We had a...

Loved the resort, the food, the beaches and the island. Lots of places to explore on the island. Rent a car and drive the entire island, and you will find beautiful, deserted beaches. Highly recommend the resort.

From the moment we were greeted by Frank at the small airpot on Cat Island, we knew it was going to be a relaxing holiday. Shannas Cove Resort is a lovely oasis tucked into a small hillside off a very rural road on this small island untainted by tourism. Our cottage was lovely, comfortable bed, restful front porch and everything...

Shanna's Cove was our first choice for accommodations when researching our trip to Cat Island. Frank replied quickly to my emails with the dates available, however we dragged our heels too long, by the time we replied what was available was not. We booked a nearby beach house with the intention of visiting Shanna's Cove, but were disappointed to learn...

We are repeat visitors (as are most of the guests). The resort beach, as well as Man O' War beach, is still spectacular and unspoiled. The rooms are tasteful and impeccably cleaned. Cabins are private and the views are spectacular. Balconies are very large and there is comfortable seating everywhere outside.The perfectly trained staff (Gabi is responsible) are unchanged and...

This place is gorgeous. There are 5 bungalows all facing the water. The bungalows are well laid out and have everything you need including a lovely verandah to enjoy the view. The beach is very pleasant and private with kayaks and paddle boards available. There is a long beach walk with barely another person around and a walk through the...

We traveled to pristine Cat Island in mid-January and spent a full week at Shanna's Cove Resort. The bungalows were clean, well kept, and quite affordable given the location. The views were spectacular. The food, while a bit pricey, was excellent. Service could not have been better. Owners Frank and Gabi have hired an excellent team. I hate to single...

We just spent a week on Cat Island with our two teenagers and ate several dinners and lunches at Shanna's Cove (though we did not stay at the resort). The food was always excellent and Gabby, Frank and their staff were extremely attentive and friendly. Dinners are served at around 7 with guests congregating at the bar for a pre-dinner...

I'm going to echo another reviewer hear and say that I almost don't want to tell you how great this place is for fear that my wife and I won't be able to get back in. Spotless property, amazing staff, great bungalows, good food, isolated beach, and the owners Frank and Gabi are mega attentive without being creepy or gooey....
