Unfortunately, our last minute Bahamas trip meant that Shannas was booked, but our experience there was nonetheless impressive. The food was delicious, the diving was personal and effortless, the location was fantastic and the hosts were amazing. The walk to a remote nearby beach was well worth the effort. Will return to stay here next time.

This was a return trip for us and beyond all expectations, as usual. This is paradise, pure and simple. The gourmet food that comes out of Gabi's kitchen rivals the best in the world. (Funny how couples staying at nearby resorts came to Shanna's Cove for dinner.) Scallops, shrimp, duck breast, veal, red snapper, lamb are just a few of...

This is our 2nd stay and to think of anything negative…I can’t…everything was excellent! The accommodations, the service, the people, and the food, Excellent. Well the food, it was some of the best we have experienced. Frank and Gabi have this wonderful Chef, Andrea. She is a wonderful girl that has a natural talent when it comes to cooking. I...

This time 6 days, not 3, nothing changed and we cannot wait to return in January. I can only say dido our last review, and Frank was solo and did a great job holding down the fort. Nothing changed five star food and accommodations. Found some new beaches and visited Da Smoking Pot for some off property good food and...

Not a whole lot to repeat as past reviewers have stated much of what exists and what to expect. Shanna’s does indeed have a prime spot, situated on a hill with a beautiful look out to the bay/cove in the back. We were in the “Parrot” Bungalow which really does offer the most privacy, although privacy in general is not...

We were lucky enough to have 8 wonderful nights with Frank & Gabi at this amazing place. We won't repeat what other visitors have already commented on - only to say you can walk for miles on sandy beaches and probably not see any one else; the little bungalows are clean, comfy and roomy. We loved waking up in the...

It was my privilege to spend a few nights at this wonderful little resort and restaurant. I went solo and wondered if I'd be lonely. Not a problem. Relaxed easy atmosphere. Beautiful beach. Some walking paths and "secret beaches". The cottages are very nice. Well appointed and comfortable with a nice sea view porch. Gabby and Frank, the owners, make...

Although we didn't stay at Shanna's, we spent a lot of time there. Frank took us diving on his boat and we had lunch and dinner there almost every day. It was a huge surprise to find a place with such incredible food. We basically had the dive boat to ourselves nearly everyday with Frank diving with us. Gabi is...
