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.

As soon as our friendly taxi lady pulled up to the property I realized that none of the photos can even do it justice. It was paradise! I found Greenwood Beach online after looking for kitesurfing and diving spots in the Bahamas and it had good reviews (I've been to quite a few spots around the Caribbean before). . But the location and layout of this place and the way Antoine and Pauline immediately made us feel like it's our home was exceptional and it only got better from there.

The resort is right on a pristine secluded beach. If you don't feel like lounging under the trees or on the grass or next to the pool, there are miles of beach each way to explore. There's perfect snorkeling and kiteboarding right in front of the resort. No-one to bother you.

The food was excellent. (Keep in mind the difficulty and logistics of producing restuarant food on a remote island - so the choices are limited but well prepared). We ended up having a full traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all guests, staff and neighbors. You'll read about Antoine's incredible side passion for magic - and he's an excellent entertainer btw. This in addition to being a great and patient kiteboarding and diving instructor. Kiting is excellent right in front of the resort and we had amazing dives off of their well-equipped dive boat a short drive away in Port Howe.

We left feeling more like family and friends. If you want to break away completely and lead a fairly luxurious yet Robinson Crusoe style existence for a week, this is the best place on the planet. If you expect an Aruba or Nassau-style resort - please rather go there and don't ruin this special place for the rest of us who prefer an authentic secluded piece of paradise we can share with likeminded folks.

You know the feeling: work's been hectic, Just moved house - just need to get away?

That was our starting point two weeks ago. We'd read the reviews and as late "forty somethings", just wanted to relax and not have to DO anything. Thanks first of all to all you previous reviewers who have captured Greenwood's spirit marvellously. We'd been to Grand Bahama before and loved it, but this time wanted to try a different island.

Pauline met us on arrival (taxi took 40mins) and welcomed us into the resort. I told her her fame had spread to Europe for hospitality. A warm welcome, and orientation of the resort: then taken to a clean comfortable bungalow in Island style, we felt very much at home.

One reviewer stated it's like a cross between a friend's beach house and a hotel - that is very accurate. Their motto is 'Find yourself'. We spent two weeks doing just that. Antoine appeared, briefly, to say hello, as he was busy on jobs. He was always busy doing something - even finding time to kitesurf on the beach.

It's very laid back. I never know what to pack when I go away, but casual is the order of the day here. Beachwear for day and shorts/teeshirts for evening. The breeze can get chilly so a hoodie or sweater can be useful. I found it hard to stay up later than 10:30pm most days!!

Breakfasts can be as continental or full as you wish. Lunches are delicious - the wings with the hot sauce my favourite. Dinner choice is requested during the day, with fish or chicken the Bahamian way being just what you need, created by their in house chefs. Visitors come for lunch and wander in most days.

But the BEACH!!! Must be how Branson feels on Necker. Almost a private 8-mile beach! We saw two strangers in 14 days while doing our daily walks. The wet sand is like silt between your toes - the finest sand and best we've ever had. It is just so beautiful on the beach. The Trade Winds keep you cool belying the sun's power - care is needed.

For the more actively minded, kayaks, snorkelling, dive trips, kiteboard lessons, bicycle hire, car rental - all right here. For the less inclined there's "hook and ring" (lol), painting the driftwood, chess, pool in the cellar, wifi in the bar and just plain old fashioned reading.

There's an honesty bar, serve yourself, that I found novel. But don't come looking for nightlife - choose another place. Antoine will get you up to jam on guitar if you can play. We had a 'movie night' which was great - the other guests also just 'got it' - the relaxed vibe.

We rented a car one day and visited the whole island - to Shanna's Cove in the north and Hawks Nest in the Southwest- all in a day with a stop for lunch at the Old Bight Fish Fry. Go and see The Hermitage too!

Antoine and Pauline are perfect hosts. Just the right amount of visibility. Their dedication to improving the resort can be seen in action during your stay. We cannot thank or praise them enough.

Supplies are tricky here - go with the flow - sometimes something runs out. I've seen people spoil their own holiday in the past by not being flexible to Island life.

So what's not to like? Well...

The 'No-see-ums' or microbugs can be a pain. You need deet. Don't know if they get you in the day or the night but they're out there. No mozzies seen though. We all got little itchy bites from something invisible.

The deserted beach does get some flotsam and jetsam wash up during high tides. It's a shame but a scourge of modern times and it's not litter - just plastic junk.

That said...

If you want beauty, relaxation and an unhurried and an un-pestered vacation, this is definitely worth a look. You'll be well looked after and find it hard to motivate yourself to even go and snorkel!! You'll definitely want to write a review so that others find it and it will be very hard not to come back again!!

We stumbled onto Paulina and Antoine and the Greenwood Resort while we were exploring this little slice of paradise...Paulina showed us around the resort with all bungalows and dive pool and then left us to enjoy the 8 mile beach and the rest of the islands most southern tip...We will book a future vacation at Greenwood for sure...

Our daughter and son-in-law were married on Cat Island (He proposed to my daughter here too!). We had the Wedding Reception at Greenwood for about 30 guests including family and friends from all over the US. The accommodations were charming and the staff was so friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home. Many of us stayed the entire week at Greenwood. Some went Diving, others snorkeling, some fishing and some just relaxing in the beach chairs or hammock with a tasty drink in hand. We all loved the pool! We made a sign at the end of our stay that we painted on driftwood with our Last Name and Month/Year of our visit. It hangs at the resort with the many other signs made by other guests. The locals are wonderful, helpful people! We loved Greenwood. Our Granddaughter is a "Cat" baby too. She was conceived on the honeymoon! So we have local ties to this beautiful place on Earth now, too!
