Arriving at Cat Island, slightly bog eyed and jet lagged, Frank picked us up and immediately we felt at ease and comfortable. On arriving at the resort we were made to feel at home and welcome - Frank and Gabi are excellent hosts, friendly, a great sense of humour and helpful, working extremely hard behind the scenes to ensure that...

I have been to many places in the Caribbean and many islands, but nothing compares to Shannas Cove. Frank and his wife Gabby are great hosts and real nice/cool people. This is not like other island experiences.. It lacks tourists and touristy things to do. It is a true island experience. Quiet, secluded, tranquil... if you are looking for peace,... More

We visited this beautiful property in July 2012 (a little late in my review) Everything in all of the great reviews are true. We had the bungalow closest to the water, wonderful view. The beach and water are wonderful, crystal clear blue calm water. Rarely was there anyone else on the beach with us. The restaurant and food was great,... More

We stayed late June into July this year and can sum up our experience with that single word, "Outstanding" in all areas. Agree with all previous reviewers on all subjects from food, beach, drinks, Frank/Gabe, their staff, meeting other guests and the island. If you want to just really unwind and relax, this is it. One mention I would make... More

Just got back from one of the most unforgettable trips of a lifetime. Great food, extremely comfortable accommodations and two of the nicest hosts you will ever meet. But the best part has to be the beauty of it all, the beaches are beyond perfect, because 99.9% of the time, you are the only one on the beach...the clear warm... More

We were at Shannas Cove at the beginning of March. This was our first time there. We loved the accommodations, the peacefulness of our surroundings and the quality of the food. It was definitely the best food we have had during our numerous trips to the Caribbean. Only one negative point: due to their enormous popularity, it's a lot more... More

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
