This is, by far, the best of the Bahamas-- not luxury resorts stealing the show, but an enhancement of the natural beauty and rhythm and friendliness that is unique to the Bahamas. There were other guests at the Bay, but Jason, Tameron, Tony, and Pam made us feel like we were the only people on the island. Honor system at... More

This was our second trip to Cat Island and Fernandez Bay Village. I just booked for our third visit. I can't imagine vacationing anywhere else now that we've found this place. FBV and the people of Cat Island treat us like family. The resort is beautiful, the people that work there are amazing, and it's easier to get to than... More

We've been to Cat several times as it has some of the best beaches in the world (no exaggeration) and we've stayed at various locations. FBV is just minutes away from New Bight airport and FBV will pick you up so it's very convenient. There's a reason why generations of families keep coming back to FBV. If you want to... More

FBV is one of the most friendly, relaxing and beautiful places we have experience (and we travel a lot!) We have already booked for next year and we are so looking forward to be back and maybe organize a special event in the future! Thank you again for making our vacation special!

Quintessential Bahamas! We have visited several locations in the out islands in the Bahamas, this is the best! Will definitely go back! The setting is just spectacular, secluded bay, gorgeous water, great beach! If you are looking for luxury accommodations, all inclusive resort, fine dining restaurants, this may not be the place for you. But if you are looking for... More

FBV is with out a doubt the best, most relaxing venue in the Bahamas. Family owned and operated for years, FBV just keeps on getting better and better. Oh yes, the food, the service in support of the restsurant and cottages is supreme. Lobster night is beyond description! You must meet Donna.....

The suites are picturesque and the setting is perfect. The staff could not be nicer or more attentive. Everyone in our party loved the self service bar. This was our second year in a row at FBV, we will be back!

The location is wonderful. The people are nice. The rooms are overpriced. The food is overpriced. The snorkeling equipment,; I would bring my own. They need a bartender for the bar. They need some good vegetarian options. As far as I am concerned it was not a good value for the money.

We are so happy you enjoyed the beach and staff at FBV. Our time honored self-help tiki-bar is a favorite among new and returning guest. While it's not a common request we do our best to accommodate all dietary restrictions - food shopping in the out islands can have it's challenges. It is best to bring your own snorkeling gear....

This was our second trip to FBV. Decided to stay a bit further down the beach for more privacy. The cottage is small, but we were never in it, so it really wasn't relevant. The best thing about FBV is the privacy. They were fully booked, but we rarely ran into anyone except at the clubhouse around meals. It's busiest... More
