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

In fact, I always hate to write reviews of the great places we have stayed, because inevitably it makes it harder (and oftentimes more expensive) the next time we want to visit, but Frank and Gabby certainly earned this review. Greeted at the airport (even though hours late on the local flight; "Take Bahama Air if you have time to... More

We stayed for 6 nights recently at Shannas and can only echo the praise found in other reviews! Frank and Gabi and their staff were perfect hosts: organized, friendly, and sensitive to their guest's needs. Resort is impeccably clean. Meals are gourmet but not pretentious. While we were there, dinners included beef tenderloin, strawberry grouper, duck breast, bahamian lobster, scallop,... More

Everything was so perfect! The hotel is spotless. The beach is unreal. The food was out of this world. Nothing I can say will accurately describe just how amazing this vacation was for us. Most of the time we felt like we were on a private island with just to two of us. If we wanted to I'm sure we... More

Cannot get tired of this great place and the host and hostess. Frank and Gabby thanks for the great time, good food and escape. We flew ourselves in from the states easy travel through North Eleuthera. They are still maintaining the 5 star approach to the business. I will state it again, the St Regis quality all cooped up in... More

Most previous TA-reviewers have already mentioned everything nice about Shannas Cove resort. The beach is spectacular and almost deserted (and there is another beach just as nice around the corner and another and so on). The water is fabulous, blue/green and absolutely clear (or so it seems). The staff at Shannas Cove is very friendly, Gabi and Frank the owners... More

Thank you Frank & Gabi for sharing your piece of Heaven with us. We are not sure when we first "tried" to get a reservation at Shanna's Cove (or even how we found it on TripAdvisor). We say tried, because Shanna's Cove STAYS full. We booked our vacation in February for November 5-12, 2014 when they just get back from... More
