One of my all time favorite places. The thing that really makes this place is the beach, you step out of your cottage and onto a perfect beach. I live in the Caribbean and have never been anywhere that even compares to how nice it is, just sitting in the water. Word of warning though, drinks and meals are very... More

Our third island on our Bahama Island Hopping Holiday was Cat Island. We had stayed on Cat Island in 2011, but that hotel was pretty rundown so this time we decided on Fernandez Bay Resort. This resort is also rundown and needs some TLC. The bar is honor system, the food at the restaurant was fair. Food was served several... More

My wife and I just returned and we cannot express how incredible this resort/hotel is. A family operation through and through. The staff is 100% happy and considerate. More than that, they will go out of their way to accommodate any needs/wants that pop up. Thank you to the entire Fernandez Bay Family! -Chris and Michelle Corey

As you may know we have spent 4 Christmas holidays here and we're always glad we did. This Christmas we couldn't book any rooms so we took the family to another island. Right before they left after 10 beautiful days they said"call Fernandez Bay now and book 3 houses for Christmas!!! My oldest daughter, her bone fishing husband and 2... More

FBV is a great resort for couples looking to get away from it all and relax in a beautiful beach setting. Located on Cat Island, an outer-island of the Bahamas, it is only a few hours away from east coast airports, plus a short hop from Nassau. The air travel is simple, and the car ride from the tiny "international"... More

This place is rustic yet Charming, secluded & paradise! I love the indoor/outdoor bathrooms and the beaches are amazing. We went to a little restaurant that made everything from scratch using goat milk etc. it was a great authentic local experience.

Just got back from FBV and had a great vacation. The people of the island are fantastic. The resort was wonderful. The staff, beach, water, rooms, food, honor bar, sunsets, total atmosphere was just perfect. Jason was the BEST! That guy is maybe your number one asset. The reason why I say maybe, is because its tough to compete with... More

Although I have never stayed at Fernandez Bay Village, I have come here for lunch and dinner three times over the course of three years. Every time is just as enjoyable. For lunch we always enjoy having a burger on the outdoor patio, their beach is stunning. The dinner we had was almost buffet style and the lobster thermidor was... More

This was our third time to FBV and Cat Island, and the third time is still just as charming. My husband and I are blessed to be able to take a nice vacation every year. There was a time when visiting every Caribbean Island was on my bucket list. I always thought it was strange for people to go back... More
