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...

I own land on Cat Island and had not been there for a few years. Went to Cat in April of 2013 to visit what I consider to be my own piece of Heaven and stayed at Tail Winds! It was wonderful! Rich and Rosie were amazing and I can't wait to come back again. I hesitate telling people about... More

This place, literally you have to be there to appreciate how amazing it is. We were worried before arriving that it would not be as fun as our previous trip in the exumas but it was amazing. We hadn't arranged any transport from airport to the hotel but as soon as we landed the resort had someone waiting for us... More

Firstly, I need to apologies for the extremely delayed review from our stay in October 2012 (I'll definitely do it next week, was mentioned a fair few times). Rich, thank you so much for having us, the location was fantastic, the food was fantastic, the beach, the rooms, the jacuzzi, the tikki bar, the weather, the sand, the water, everything... More
