I had my first visit to Shannas Cove last summer and have been thinking about it ever since. I agree with basically everything that has been said in the other reviews about the beautiful beach, incredible food and very comfortable rooms of Shannas Cove. However, for me the real reason that I can't wait to go back to Shannas Cove...

Absolute best place in the world. It will be the most amazing trip ever, guaranteed! The view is perfect, the rooms are spotless (stripped and bleached top to bottom each year), the food is delightful, and best of all, the company (owners) is par non. Stop looking and book this trip now, you can thank me later.

For the first time in a dozen years of 2 trips a year to many 'paradises', my wife and I returned to a resort. It was and is all we could want. Fantastic people, excellent accommodations, incredible food and a setting that is perfect for us. The beach perfect, incredible flat walking for 2 miles + and rarely will you...

This was our second trip to Shannas Cove, and we have fallen even more in love with it than we did last year! Everything from the accommodations, food, staff, and beach were superb! Frank and Gabi are always so welcoming, and it is so nice knowing what to expect each year. We had the wonderful opportunity to get to know...

We visited Cat Island March 2013 for a week. Our first choice was Shannas Cove Resort but they were booked so we spent our nites at Tail Winds down the beach. We ate all of our meals at Shannas and we can only add that the service, the food and the friendship was top notch here. If you are one...

We were guests of Frank and Gabby from 11/1-11/11/13 for our Honeymoon. We traveled from Palm Desert, California. We definitely wanted seclusion and privacy for our honeymoon and that's exactly what we got. We've been to all inclusives and high end resorts, yet this was right up our alley for our honeymoon. It's exactly what we needed to relax from...

Beautiful. Heavenly. Idyllic. Perfect. We ran out of words to describe Shanna's Cove somewhere between the crystal clear waters and the decadent and delicious meals. Frank and Gabbi and their staff made us feel welcome and at ease. The room was bright and clean and comfortable. The picturesque beach was almost exclusively ours. My only issue with Shanna's Cove is...

I went with my husband last year for our Honeymoon and it was just amazing!! The villas are really beautiful, the food is really really good and of course the white sand beach is amazing!

So much has already been said by the other couples we had the good fortune to meet during our August 2013 visit. All of it true. Gabi and Frank were the perfect hosts. Gabi took great care in making sure we were well fed and the food was amazing (Thanks Andrea too). Nothing was too much trouble for Frank either...

It's so hard to know where to begin... The place is simply perfect. The five villas all have great views and modern amenities that aren't always available at resorts as secluded as these. The beach was incredible. It was clean, quiet, and the only other people we saw were the ones who stayed at the resort. Man of war beach...
