Shannas Cove Resort
Ranked #2 of 10 Hotels in Cat Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 July 2010

Our 10 day stay at Shannas Cove Resort was one of THE best vacations we've taken in our 40 years of marriage - and we've been to several Caribbean islands, Bermuda, the Balearics, & Mexico for "warm getaways". Frank and Gabi's hospitality is outstanding - they (along with Katarinna) work diligently to accomodate their guests' needs. Gabi's cooking is excellent - especially her fish dishes and homemade bread. The grounds are well groomed and planted very nicely. Our cottage - the Parrot - was perfect, with an incredible view of the ocean with its changing colors. The staff cleaned meticulously every day, including the sliding glass doors that opened onto our porch. The resort is positioned towards the end of an extensive beach, so that you can walk for what seems like miles in the other direction. And if you prefer your own private beach, there is one "next door" that can easily be reached by walking at low tide, or swum or kayaked to. Gabi and Frank, thank you for making our 40th so special!

We stayed at Shanna’s Cove over Christmas ‘09, and were more than thrilled by the experience. First, the location – the resort is at one of the most beautiful beaches on Cat Island. Guests stay at oceanfront bungalows with beautiful views over the beach. Each bungalow is essentially a one room studio, some larger than others, with a very comfortable bed, desk, couch and refrigerator and coffee maker and satellite TV as well as a separate modern bathroom and shower room and expansive outside porch overlooking the ocean. Second, the warm welcome – Frank and Gabi, the couple who run Shanna’s, are very welcoming and spare no effort to make you feel at home. They are also fun and very nice! Third, the food – without doubt, Shanna’s has Cat Island’s best. We tried a number of places on the island, and to come anywhere close to fine dining as we know it in the US or Europe, you must come here. Gabi imports specialty food items from the US and Europe, and served the most amazing Christmas dinner for 19 people, with an unforgettable feast of duck breast, cabbage, potatoes and salmon. Amazing! Every day we were there, the food just seemed to get better and better. While the lack of cooking facilities in the bungalows limit somewhat your options for eating in, as Gabi’s restaurant serves three meals a day, you won’t go wanting. Fourth, Frank has a state-of-the-art diving school on the premises of Shanna’s Cove, offering trips to all levels of divers to some of the most beautiful spots located right nearby. Both Frank and Gabi are passionate about their resort; they clearly love what they are doing, and their enthusiasm added that much more to our stay. We felt very lucky to have discovered Shanna’s, and would recommend this as the top destination on the island for foodies and divers.

arrived for 6 days to Shanna's Resort after hours of searching the web for a relaxing beach vacation. We couldnt find much about the resort as it was opened late 2009...but had a good feeling that we made the right choice..And we sure did! the resort is quiet & relaxed, clean and beautiful (design of room, balcony, bathroom, rest, etc), the beach is incredible, soft sand & miles of private walk, turquoise water to swim in (the real carribbean thing).

Frank & Gabi are great people, they have all the knowledge, facilities and connections that you will need if you wish to explore the Island (we went fishing, wondered around the Island, the heritage, visited some of the small, cool cat island bars, considered Scuba diving but didnt make it this time, etc).
The restaurant is great, we had a spoiling breakfast every day at the deck facing the lovely beach, good fresh salads or homemade pizza for lunch and for dinner fish or (very) good steak, prices were very reasonable.
We enjoyed the company of the lovely guests that we met at the bar and went out to the farmers' market in town all together- had good fun there!


Overall- we had the best vacation ever, Shanna's is THE place to be in this magical Cat Island!

--as for sand flies...remember to use spray and they will stay away : ) worth it!
