My wife and I just got back from our 5 night/ 6 day honeymoon from the Village and all we can say is; WOW! We both have pretty stressful jobs and needed to get away to unwind after the wedding and thats exactly what we did. Excellent food, amazing staff that makes you feel like family, and one of the most amazing locations sets this place far above other tropical locations we been to. If you are looking for touristy shopping and dressing up fancy then you should probably wander through Nassau. However, if you want to wake up looking out over a beautiful tropical bay, kayak through uninhabited mangrove islands and bike to ancient ruins, this is the place for you. The snorkeling is pretty awesome as well!

We stayed in the "Shane Shack" which, like all their rooms, is on the beach and literally steps from the water. Watching the sun set from our wrap around patio and sipping tropical drinks is something we will never forget. We look forward to coming back very soon.

We recently visited Cat Island for the first time but stayed at another resort. During our visit we, like many other travelers, wanted to check out other options for places to stay on later visits. We had dinner or lunches at several other resorts and were always made to feel very welcomed. One day we were driving by Fernandez Bay Village and it was lunch time so we thought we would drop in and check it out. After carefully driving down the long and very rough road we parked the car and approached the front entrance. On the door was a small note saying they were closed. As we turned to walk back to our car a woman stuck her head out the door and very rudely yelled at us, saying they were closed and we needed to leave immediately.

We were shocked, speechless and left immediately. I would suggest that next time they close they put a sign at the start of the long road in rather than just a small one on the front door. Or just be a little kinder to people who stop by.

12 family members were here in 3 houses for my parent's 55th anniversary. Donna and her Staff were exceptional as always, being aware of allergies, locating lost luggage, getting cakes made and champagne delivered from family members not in attendance! I always look forward to staying at Fernandez Bay Resort and miss it when I leave! Would recommend it to any and all The beach is Superb, the food Divine and the staff Sublime!

Room Tip: houses/villas house from a couple to several, and multiple singes

Stayed 4 nights at FBV during our trip to Cat Island. A great location on an amazing island, with everything that you could possibly want from a hotel. Rooms are very nice, although a tad rustic, and we weren't convinced about having the whole bathroom outside as cleaning your teeth turned into a bit of an 'I'm A Celebrity' Challenge when we left the light on one night! The food is good, but overpriced for a buffet and that probably reflects the hotel in general - it is slightly galling paying well over the odds for a local beer at an honesty bar. We found there was room for improvement on the service side too, it would have been nice to have had a barman in the evening and, compared to the other hotels on the island we visited (Tailwinds, Shannons), you don't get the same personal feel. This said, it is catering for a slightly different audience (very 'Republican' as one of the US guests referred to it...).
We had a great time and it's a great hotel with 'lots' to do - we did some fantastic kayaking and snorkelling right from the beach and borrowed some bikes for a tour round the local sites.
Would certainly recommend visiting FBV for the location, but there are, in my opinion, better places to stay on the Island where you will get better VFM and a more personal service.

Beautiful secluded beach. Gorgeous sunsets. Comfortable rooms literally steps from the water. Wonderful hospitality. Great hosts and staff. Made us feel right at home. The perfect place to relax and recharge. We cannot wait to go back to this amazing place.
