This was our 4th visit to Cat Island. We have always made at least 1 trip to Shanna's Cove for lunch and or dinner as we rent a house south of them. The food is Delicious(Simon is a fantastic cook) and the view is a million dollar view. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Frank has shown us their... More

Simple but elegant. Wild but refined. It is a challenge to fully describe our experience at Shannas Cove Resort. Can't say enough about how skilled Frank and Gabi are at always being there when you need them, but giving you the space to explore the Island. Our main interest there was snorkeling - and the Island did not disappoint. There... More

What can I say that hasn't been already said by the glowing reviews; this is simply the best vacation we have ever enjoyed from our extensive Caribbean travels.

I hate to the first person to give 4 stars, as there was so much good about this place, but for three days of our visit, there was loud music from down the beach that disturbed the tranquility we came for. The beach is so beautiful, you just want to lay back and relax, but with the music audible even... More

This place is a must to get away from life's rat race. The peace and tranquility of Shannas Cove is magical to say the least and Frank and Gabi are the perfect hosts.

We were out exploring Cat Island and stopped in! Such great people! They invited us to go down and check out the beach. We spent some time swimming then headed back up for some drinks and lunch! My granddaughter said the pizza there was the best!

This place is definitely a favorite of ours, and we were already trying to figure out how to get back before we left. I don't think there is much I can say that hasn't been said, but it is a special, peaceful and serene place that seems to attract a laid back clientele. Not enough has been said on here... More

Our favorite place to relax after a long winter is Shanna's Cove Resort. We prefer places that are family owned, small, quiet and out of the way, and as usual SC exceeded our expectations.
