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

My wife and I have looking at a tiny advertisement in some travel magazines for several years. We finally decided to go. We weren't disappointed! Getting there was not as challenging as we thought. We stayed over in Nassau on the want there since the connections were not working well. When we landed we were greeted by Danny our driver.... More

I was lucky enough to go to this family run hotel with my own family. It is a little slice of heaven. The staff is incredibly friendly and people are there to help you if you need it, otherwise, you are left alone to enjoy paradise. The food is delicious. I am a relatively picky eater and found ways to... More

We have been going to FBV for many years and absolutely love it. I almost don't want to mention this special jewel to anyone because if it becomes to discovered, we will have to find another place! The resort is "rustic elegant." The rooms are super clean and very comfortable. The staff is "family," truly. They open their arms and... More

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!
