We were at Shannas Cove in the middle of March. This was our second time there. Everything was excellent. We went with family and friends and everyone is still talking about Shannas cove. We rented a car for a couple days which Frank arranged for us. We drove around the island and stopped at most of the local watering holes.... More

I'm not sure there's anything more I can add to the other reviews-all true! Reviews, pictures and niceties can't do Shannas Cove justice. Just wanted to pinch myself each day as Shannas seems surreal with its beauty and peacefulness. Deserted beaches for miles! I've never seen more beautiful water. The food was out of this world and Frank and Gabi's... More

We just returned from our vacation at Shanna’s Cove, and I have to say that we had the time of our lives! First, there is no need to worry about finding a taxi. Frank will pick you up from the airport and take you directly to the resort. Along the way, Frank will explain a little about the resort, and... More

My wife and I travelled from Ireland and stayed in Shannas Cove from the 14th to 21st June 2014 on our honeymoon. Following on from the reviews below I would say that the stunning views, beautiful beaches and superb local home cooked food are a given and come as standard. Don’t be fooled by Gabi and Franks German exterior, they... More

I know some of you will not believe me when I tell you this, but I must reveal my secret: of all guests past, present, and future, we are Gabi and Frank's favorites. I know, it's hard to take in all at once, but here is my evidence: from the moment we stepped off our plane in Cat Island, our... More

.... as we don't want others finding out about it. Support all other comments made - great place, fantastic location, lovely friendly staff, wonderful fresh food, generous drinks, cute dog (Tia), the bluest clearest sea, very hospitable hosts in Frank and Gaby. If you prefer anodyne 5* star hotels that could be anywhere in the world, then please stay away... More

We didn’t think it was possible to eclipse the wonderfully perfect experience we had during our stay at Shannas Cove last August, but much to our pleasant surprise, our second stay in this unique paradise was even better. Since we jumped at the chance to book our next visit while staying last August, we were able to enjoy a full... More

Unfortunately, our last minute Bahamas trip meant that Shannas was booked, but our experience there was nonetheless impressive. The food was delicious, the diving was personal and effortless, the location was fantastic and the hosts were amazing. The walk to a remote nearby beach was well worth the effort. Will return to stay here next time.

This was a return trip for us and beyond all expectations, as usual. This is paradise, pure and simple. The gourmet food that comes out of Gabi's kitchen rivals the best in the world. (Funny how couples staying at nearby resorts came to Shanna's Cove for dinner.) Scallops, shrimp, duck breast, veal, red snapper, lamb are just a few of... More

This is our 2nd stay and to think of anything negative…I can’t…everything was excellent! The accommodations, the service, the people, and the food, Excellent. Well the food, it was some of the best we have experienced. Frank and Gabi have this wonderful Chef, Andrea. She is a wonderful girl that has a natural talent when it comes to cooking. I... More
