Cat Island as a whole if a great place for a vacation. Little to no crime, friendly people, great beaches. Greenwood personifies all these qualities. Laid back resort, with a deserted beach, friendly staff and really good food. Our room was immaculate with daily housekeeping, good linens and mattress. The resort is older as is evident by the photo's but its in great shape, and the service is top notch. You don't have to worry about anything. Everything was easily arranged with the managers, including a rental car and snorkeling trips. We were 4 couples and everyone had a great time.
We went to Cat Island and Greenwood in a family trip and we loved our stay there! The room was sparkling clean, and cleaned everyday. The bedding was comfortable. The food is great, healthy and varies every day. The staff is beyond welcoming and helpful. Pauline and Antoine do everything to make you feel home and to make your stay the best ever. The beach is just wonderful, we had it for ourselves all the time and our little one couldn't get enough of the pool and the beach. If you are hesitating to go, just stop hesitating and book, you won't regret it.
Situated adjacent to prime beach setting; you can walk for miles without seeing people or houses. Food is fresh; while options were somewhat limited due to COVID-19, I enjoyed the simplified menu with flavors true to the region. Pauline and Antoine share their scuba/snorkeling expertise eagerly, and help coordinate snorkeling outings, car rentals, etc. They are also fun to hang out with! My room was comfortable and kept tidy daily by hotel staff. I didn’t venture far from the resort this time; it’s very easy to just spend a relaxed week at the resort. But I will return and rent a car for a few days to explore other locations for food and snorkeling.
GF and I visited Greenwood Beach Resort in August 2019. We truly had a wonderful time. Antoine and Pauline are the best hosts, and just wonderful people. The beach is spectacular, words can’t describe it. The hotel is so friendly, it’s like visiting with your family. The food was great. We both like seafood, and Greenwood has the best! Breakfast and dinner were delicious, we both agreed.
Cat Island was warm, 90s every day, so we were glad to have an A/C room. The ocean was 90, too! We were on the beach everyday. You can walk for miles and never see another person. They say the only footprints you see will be your own, and it’s true.
We liked our room. It was clean and quiet, and the bed was very comfortable. We slept like babies. It’s nice to fall asleep to the sound of the waves washing up on the shore, and wake up to them, too! And the A/C kept it comfortable.
We rented a car one day, and went exploring. It was fun, and we could have spent more time poking around, but we decided we’d rather spend our time on the beach and in the water. We did go to Old Bight Beach and it was beautiful and the water was calm. We’d like to go there again.
We loved Greenwood, and can’t wait to go back! We give it 5 stars, and 4 thumbs up!
My boyfriend and stayed at the Greenwood Resort during an amazing diving trip. We loved this cute, quiet and low key resort. We weren’t looking for an overly populated tourist trap. Greenwood is the perfect get away! Greenwood is on a beautiful beach with plenty of activities to keep adventure seekers happy. Antoine and Pauline were extremely gracious and friendly hosts. Also, very entertaining. One night they played on the slackline out by the beach with us and every other night Antoine had a new magic trick to show us!
There's a full liquor bar that runs on an honesty system. We got a bottle of wine at night and it cost about 20 USD. We love the laid back and relaxed vibe. The buffet dinner every night was delicious and satisfying.
The rooms are small but clean and comfortable. You won’t want to be in your room much anyway when visiting a place as beautiful as Cat Island. The beds are comfy and we found the sounds of nature to be quite peaceful. Our room had AC but we never had to use it due to the wonderful breeze blowing through.
We highly recommend Greenwood Resort when visiting Cat Island!!
