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....

For those, like us, who have only seen ad photos of secluded beaches and pristine Caribbean landscapes, this is the real deal. Shannas Cove met our travel expectations above and beyond the call of duty. From the food to the accommodations, our hosts Gabi and Frank and their team of hospitality experts made for a truly memorable experience. One of...

My wife and I have just returned from our second trip to Shannas Cove. Sea, sun, snorkeling, calm, and a great kitchen and bar. Dinners are always excellent. What more could you ask of Frank and Gabi, who are amiable and attentive hosts. The local staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. The bungalows are nestled up against what must be...

Frank and Gabi are outstanding hosts and we loved our visits to Shannas Cove. The Greek pizza is highly recommended, and they make a wonderful Pina Colada. Dinners were a real treat; their menu is very authentic and most dishes are made from scratch. The brunch breakfasts in particular were a real treat; we had run out of coffee and...
