Shannas Cove Resort is situated at a prefect location near the Northern end of Cat island with gorgeous views over the turquoise waters. We tried the famous pizza and we can only agree: amazing. The German owners recently sold this wonderful resort to a couple from Germany as well. We are sure they will continue to keep this place a secret paradise!

My wife and I have a saying - we want to visit everywhere, and because of that we only have time to go somewhere once. Well Shanna’s will likely break that tradition. Everything about this vacation was superlative - from the incredibly rustic yet comfortable setting with beautiful beaches and pristine water to the elegant dining and phenomenal food to the exceptional service. Gabi, Frank, Fabian, Izzy, Garfield, Luna, Rufi and all of the staff made our trip so wonderful. They accommodated our every need and made us feel so welcome. A true gem! Thank you!

Gracious hosts, beautiful accommodations, unspoiled beauty and outstanding food. What more can we say. Loved it so much we booked for another week next winter. The staff were wonderful, the beach is pristine and the drinks are cold. This is a small, quiet place so if you are looking for night life or a party atmosphere this is not for you.

Just spent nine days with Frank and Gabe. Professionally run, super location, superb food every night. Unspoiled beaches, no crowds. Went snorkeling multiple times, rented a car to go beach combing on east shore. Weather perfect.

We had the pleasure of checking into Shanna’s Cove on the 24th December 2020 for a 9 day vacation and we were not disappointed. The hotel is beautifully kept, the staff extremely friendly, the hospitality was impeccable, and the local beaches are fantastic. There is a great 30min walk to a secluded beach along a jungle track that is a definite 'must do' for all guests. Frank and Gabby made our holiday extremely special, and the food cooked by the inhouse chef, Fabian, was out of this world. We do not have a bad word to say about Shanna’s Cove and we absolutely cannot wait for a return visit. Frank and Gabby are both extremely accommodating and nothing was ever too much trouble for them. Overall an 11 out of 10 experience and we would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice quiet get away on a beautiful beach with amazing food and welcoming, personal hospitality. The local Fly Fishing spots are also very special and the Bone Fish are plentiful - only a short 10 min walk away for some of the best DIY bone Fishing I have experienced in the Bahamas having lived here for 4 years. Thanks again Frank and Gabby for a truly wonderful holiday.
