My wife and I just returned from 8 days at S/Cove. What a beautiful location. No reason to add to the rave reviews about location, food, bungalows, beach, nor the people of Cat Island. Everything previously posted is true. What made this so memorable are Frank & Gabby, Simon the cook and their fantastic staff. We all went out Friday... More

We searched and searched for a place to vacation, read all the reviews and kept going back to Shanna's Cove. We read all the reviews here and wondered if so many excellent reviews could possibly be true. Well I'm here to tell you that they are! And probably even better! Everything is top notch, the rooms have all that you... More

For those of us fortunate enough to do it, world travel can be a richly rewarding experience. To meet new people, hear new ideas, see new places, learn new things. How surprising that a hidden Caribbean getaway would provide such a remarkable cultural experience. I will let the other reviewers speak to the unique charm and unsurpassed quality of Shannas...

This is simply the best hotel I have ever stayed in, and I have travelled extensively in the Bahamas and Europe at a premium level. I regularly visit this hotel for meetings, conferences etc apart from leisure breaks, and the standards are consistent throughout the year. The ambience is perfect, the food simply faultless, and the service is beyond reproach.... More

Just returned on April 13th and one again it was a wonderful relaxing trip. The moment we landed and Frank picked us up it felt like we came home to our paradise away from home. It had been two years since our last visit and it felt like nothing changed and we just came home. Frank, Gabi, Tara and all... More

We wanted a quiet, relaxing and intimate vacation. The location at the end of the cove was perfect. Gabi and Frank were incredible hosts from the moment we arrived to the ride back to the airport, they took care of us as if we were family. We took walks on the white sandy beaches and swam in crystal clear water.... More

If you're looking for Atlantis- choose another hotel- Quiet resort with 5 immaculate cottages situated overlooking pristine Shanna's Cove. Although the wide cove contains one other small hotel and several houses, the beach is empty and it is easy to find privacy just steps from your cottage. Swimming ,kayaking,and paddle board are right in front and snorkeling from the beach... More

My husband and I have just returned from our third vacation to Shannas Cove. Gabi and Frank are "The Best" Hosts anywhere, and we always feel like we've come back home to Family when we're here. They have an incredible Staff, including a Chef who prepares gourmet meals every night. The accommodations are spotless and provide wonderful views of a... More

We can't say enough good things about Shanna's Cove. We were looking for a place to disconnect, and owners Frank and Gabby have provided the perfect retreat. It's pretty much at the end of civilization on Cat Island; however the beach is beautiful, the water is pristine (prettiest in the Caribbean IMO), and the food was fantastic. Our room was... More

Everything about staying at Shannas Cove is just perfect from beginning to end. The thought and care that has gone into the hospitality and environment makes for the most unbelievably relaxing vacation. The beach is unreal and practically deserted, the rooms are spotless and have breathtaking views (we think ours, Turtle, was the best). The food was wonderful and the... More
