This was my first visit to Cat Island in a number of years. Discovering Shannas Cove for myself after hearing so much about it was a wonderful experience. We stayed in Bennett's Harbour and the drive took about a half an hour. Arriving at the Resort, the first thing that hits you is the view. I walked right out to... More

My wife & I enjoyed Shannas Cove so much the first time, we decided to visit again. In short, the ambiance, service, food, and relaxing atmosphere were equal to our first visit. Would we return for a third visit ? Absolutely ! Those 8 nights went by too fast !

A friend and I recently visited on a whim and we absolutely loved it! The meal was delicious, the service was very friendly and attentive without being intrusive, and the location, scenery, and atmosphere could not be more perfect. I can't recommend this place enough if you're in the area and I know for sure I'll be back again when... More

We drove up here from Bennett's Harbor, had a pizza (tasty - about $20) and then walked over to Man O War beach. Had the beautiful spot all to ourselves, all afternoon. Well worth the hike! We brought snorkeling stuff and could see the snorkeling would be excellent, but were having so much fun swimming and exploring we didn't get... More

Shanna's Cove Resort has an on-site restaurant with exotic specialties and delicious cocktails that can be enjoyed from the ocean view terrace. We came here by boat. And we were there all day, from breakfast to dinner. Phenomenal! Phenomenal as the sympathy of the two owners. Besides the on-site dining options, fish and meat of all kinds...vacationers hoping to find... More

This restaurant is an exception on Cat Island and the out islands in general. It is fine in the sense of European dining. Most of the entrees are imported: duck, veal, lamb. One night we had hogfish, caught locally, that was far better than it’s name implies. The first night we stayed at the resort we had the duck. I... More

Excellent dinner which consisted of a wonderful quail and spinach salad. The quail had been deboned and therefore easy to eat. Lobster was next served with potatoes and asparagus. I can't remember exactly what we had for dessert, but I think it was a chocolate tart which was also superb. White Bordeaux accompanied our dinner. Frank picked us up as... More

We rented a cottage about 20 minutes away but came to Shanna's Cove Resort for lunch and dinner multiple times because of the food and atmosphere- such a treat. Every meal was outstanding: the chef is a creative genius, the owners Frank and Gabby serve dinner and drinks themselves in a casual but lovely dining room and make it clear... More

We took our kids here for lunch (7 and 10) and had pizza. It was excellent. Service was fantastic, view was amazing and the pizza was really good. This was probably the girls favourite meal of the two weeks we spent on the island. We did the man o war hike and lounged on the beach, it was a great... More

While we didn't stay at Shannas Cove resort, we did have lunch there several times and drank our weight in Pina Coladas. :) Frank, Gabi, Tara, and the rest of the staff were extremely friendly and hospitable. Service was fantastic and the pizza was to die for. The pizzas are large enough for two adults to share. My husband and... More
