Reviews are exactly as it is. Small place on a beautiful beach and picturesque scenery. Rich is a true ex-pat New Yorker with huge heart that landed on the this amazing piece of sand and never left. If your looking for Starbucks, super fast Wifi, and cell service: go away this is not the place for you. Speaking as a... More

Most of the reviews I read prior to booking ended up spot on. Cat Island and the north end, in particular, is the perfect place to unwind, decompress, relax, revel, and chill. If you want amazing beaches, lovely people and great fellow travelers, this is the place for you. The locals were kind and gracious and our fellow travelers were... More

There isn't much to say that has not already been written. Staff is excellent, everyone feels like family at Tail Winds. Location is amazing. We rented a car one day we were there and looked around many of the other resorts on Cat Island. We still think Tail Winds in the best decision. For variety, walk, drive or cab it... More

Like most on Cat Island, Tail Winds is a small resort. Four bungalows right on the beach and a few more rooms behind the restaurant. Tail Winds is not a resort for extravert party addicts who are thinking of Las Vegas fun and games. It is heaven in a (coconut) nutshell for the rest of us rather introverted peaceful couples...

We stayed at tailwinds February of 2013 and had an excellent time. Rich really knows how to run a small resort, and is a really good guy. He's not going to be the polished and proper (stuffy) type of host, but his laugh is genuine, his opinions given freely. We were proud to have had the opportunity to make his... More

It was our first stay on Cat Island. Renaldo picked us up at the airport. The beach is awesome! Tailwinds is a great place to stay. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. A perfect location to relax. The room was very clean and directly at the beach. Thanks Renaldo and Mispah for your service! People on Island are very... More

Will look forward to staying at Tailwinds again. Had a great time, very relaxing. Accommodation and staff were excellent. We were able to see most of the island and thought Tailwinds' beach was among the best

We recently stayed at Tailwinds Resort, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. After flying in to Cat Island, Rich and Renaldo picked us up from the airport (and took us to the airport for our departure) which was really a nice thing. Renaldo and Mesba were great, and Renaldo is especially focused on making sure you have an enjoyable... More

My girlfriend and I spent a week island hopping over the Bahamas in a rented small Cessna private plane. Cat Island in general and the Tailwinds Resort in special were our first nightstop of choice, as I had already been there before and had been amazed. This is the secluded resort you've ever dreamt of. The reservation through the website... More

Beautiful location and spotless rooms. We loved the set up of the villas and common area and it's so close to the water. Unfortunately during our 6 day stay the hot tub was not working, the tikki bar on the beach was closed (something about the refrigerator not working), and the common room with the honor bar was locked by...
