My wife and I stayed here for 4 wonderful days. The managers, Tameron & Jason are friendly, helpful, and generally eager to help in any way they could. The resort was a true "out island" experience and is a well cared for property. We travel very frequently and find ourselves in the Bahamas often. The food was good, the honor... More

This facility and location is magical. Wide clean bay, wonderful sands, water is somewhat protected, water sports available free to guests, food is excellent, staff are friendly and Jason has to be the most positive manager I have ever met and cannot do enough to help. You have to like nature and quiet, but there are actually many things to... More

I have been to Fernandez Bay almost every year for over 8 years now, and every time leaves such a lasting impression. The owners, and all the staff, go out of their way to make sure that you are having the best time possible, whether it is dietary/allergy restrictions, off site excursions or suggesting other parts of the island to...

We really enjoyed our stay at Fernandez Bay. The staff were very friendly and we felt extremely at home. The honour system bar is a great touch and you can enjoy fixing yourself a drink whenever you need. The restaurant is on the beach which is beautiful! One suggestion for the owners - perhaps not charging gratuity on the drinks... More

Although we stayed at a cottage about 100 yards down the beach, the staff at Fernandez Bay was fantastic to us, allowing us to join them for cocktails and dinner when we asked. They have a great location, and wonderful beach activities. Cat Island is an "off the grid" destination, but FBV provides a perfect oasis for island guests.

Well most rave about it but I don't get it. We were recommended by friends who go there. We spent a week on Cat Island. Yes the beach is great & secluded, but there are many others like it in the Caribbean. This place is way overpriced, for what you get. Food was only average quality and prices were crazy... More

Flew in on a privat plane and spent 2 nights at FBW on a "island-hopping" trip around the islands in the Bahamas. I have visited there before ( in the early 1990's), but the place has not changed much at all since than. The pace and the smoothness in the way things are done to please the guests is just... More

From the moment we arrived, we were treated like family. We never felt so at home as we did here. Nothing from the outside world to bother us, unless we wanted to get on the internet at the clubhouse and that was not something we really wanted to do. The rooms were nice and quiet. The garden bath was very... More

I've just come back from my 6th trip to Fernandez Bay Village ("FBV"). Writing a review for this place isn't easy, because you just can't quite put words around this very special place. Let's start with the beach. It's really the most beautiful beach you can imagine. I'm pretty sure I could continue to travel the whole world and never... More
