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

Wonderful area of Cat Island, Fernandez Bay is peaceful with beautiful water and beach. The village itself meets all that is said above, but pricey for meals and somewhat lacking in personable staff. They seem to have an attitude, which fortunately, the rest of the island doesn't. If going, get off on the best side of staff so you won't... More

I just spent a wonderful weekend with my boyfriend at FBV. The place is beautiful and so peaceful. We really loved everything about it. We stayed at the Royal Palm Cottage. The room was clean, bed was comfortable, and the cottage was cozy and welcoming. We loved that we could just walk outside our room and relax at the beautiful... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful New Year's getaway in beachfront Shane's Shack and could not have had a more lovely time. Everyone at the resort makes sure guests have the best possible experience and we did! From the unspoiled beach with stunningly turquoise clear water and powdery sand, to the fabulous food and handy honor bar, we savored... More

I love when the water is the same color as the sky, and you walk on the beach while enjoying the sunset. We biked, kayaked, swam and hiked then came back to a super friendly dining area (barefoot is norm) for nice filling meals. Each night a beach fire allures you and if you’re lucky, a full moon and stars... More

My husband and I got married and spent our honeymoon at Fernandez Bay. We could't be happier we chose Fernandez Bay. Our time spent there was perfect. The staff is so friendly, without being intrusive. The owners, 3 generations of lovely people, made everything possible to make our stay and wedding a lovely experience. The matriarch, that we called Granny,... More
