My husband and I went to Shannas Cove last May for the first time. We are going again in 2 weeks. I didn't want to write a review because I don't want everyone to know just how great this place is. I want it all to ourselves! The word is out, but hopefully we have pull now that we are... More

Although we didn't stay at Shanna's, we spent a lot of time there. Frank took us diving on his boat and we had lunch and dinner there almost every day. It was a huge surprise to find a place with such incredible food. We basically had the dive boat to ourselves nearly everyday with Frank diving with us. Gabi is... More

We were looking for something quiet, private and unique. We got all three and were so impressed. The reviews on have been amazing and this is really how we settled on staying at Shanna's Cove. We can't really contribute anything more to this review other than that we fully agree... On Cat Island you get a real "old Bahama" feel... More

We stayed at a family "resort" on Cat Island, and went to Shanna's Cove for lunch. This is a beautiful property! Lunch was awesome, great pizza and wonderful service and views. The owner showed us a bungalow and all I could think about was "what movie stars are here?" Gorgeous. And the 2 mile private beach had seating for 10... More

We went here on our honeymoon, a perfect destination no matter your age, as long as you have a bit of the adventurous spirit about you. We were here for five nights(not long enough).There have been so many things said about Shanna’s (all of them being true) and we read every review before deciding to book our stay here. I... More

So my wife and I just return from our third consecutive year of visiting Shanna's Cove Resort on Cat Island. This stay was two weeks in length, which has been the norm for us, though most visitors are there for a week or so. This is also the third review I have posted on TA, since I feel so compelled...

This will be short, because we can't add much to all the other 5 star reviews, which we fully agree with! We wanted to watch the Olympic gold medal hockey game and Frank and Gabi delivered, even sending someone to our room to wake us up for the 7:30 am start. The level of service and attention to detail is... More

What can I say that hasn't already been said here about Shannas Cove. Beautiful surroundings, incredible food, friendly staff, clean and comfortable cottage, and owners who go above and beyond for their guests. From our first hours on the island spent at the Cat Island Humane Society benefit (so much fun!), to our last hours of beach time at Man-o-War... More

We just returned from our second visit with Gabi, Frank and the Shannas family - we truly feel like it is our second home. All of the accolades stated here are true - it IS a hidden slice of paradise; one you want to keep a private secret, but that would be unfair to all involved. A couple we met... More
