My husband and I have been on at least 8 different trips to the Carribean/Mexico. We have enjoyed every trip. But Fernandez Bay on remote Cat Island takes the cake! We were looking for a relaxed, not crowded, quiet place directly on the beach, and boy did we ever find it! The owners, Pam and Tony, are nice as can be, and EXTREMELY helpful/approachable if you have any questions. There are so few people on the resort, (it being fairly small, but seemingly always booked up), you tend to get to know one another, at least by sight. However, you can choose to interact as much, (or as little!), with the other guests as you want.
The food was excellent! Every morning there was a HUGE buffet selection of delicious breakfast choices, and in the evening an even BETTER buffet dinner! We're talking all you can eat gourmet 5 course dishes including dessert, all for a very reasonable price! We only ate off the resort once or twice, which is unusual for us as we like to try the local cuisine. There just aren't a lot of dining out options on Cat Island, and many restaurants are simply too far away to get to easily. That being said, while the places we went off-resort were good, the BEST food was at Fernandez Bay.
The water in the bay was relatively calm most days. Some days were gusty, and the water was a little cold to get in sometimes, but all in all, one of the best beaches I have ever been to. You can use the kayaks and bikes on the resort for free! We spent 9 days biking, swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, (bring your own gear, they don't have any), and just generally lazing around the beach. PERFECT!
