I was somewhat skeptical regarding all of the accolades Shannas Cove had received from other reviewers. Let me just say they were all accurate. Frank & Gabi Wolff are wonderful hosts, having created a wonderful small resort with a beautiful setting, great food, and privacy at a reasonable price. The rooms are comfortable (5) and all have a great view.... More

The other reviews are spot on. Miles of unspoiled empty beaches, either in front of the resort or a short hike or kayak trip away--and many more by car. Beautiful water, great food and hospitality. Rented a car and drove around Cat Island one day. Was an unexpected solo trip, but I felt welcome and enjoyed it anyway.

We just returned from our second trip to Shannas Cove, and enjoyed it just as much this time as we did the first time. You can definitely believe every five star review that you read. The food is incredible, the views from the rooms are amazing, and the beaches are unbeatable. This time instead of hiking to Man-o-War beach we... More

Second time at Shannas Cove and it was even better the 2nd time. Gabi and Frank are the best, the food is crazy good and and the beaches are simply unreal...the staff is incredibly friendly and responsive. Already booked for next year....Every review has mentioned just about everything you need to know, so no reason to go on about just... More

This is the one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve been on – and I’ve been to a lot of islands and beaches – and it was just sitting there, waiting for Gabi and Frank to screw it up. They did not. As you can see from the avalanche of praise they have received in these reviews, they have created... More

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
