Cape Santa Maria Beach Resort & Villas
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Long Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 July 2012

After a fantastic holiday at Cape Santa Maria Beach Resort 3 years ago, my fiance and I didn't hesitate to choose the resort as our destination wedding. Thanks in big part to the wonderful staff - Ewa + Brook were best in class wedding planners and made the planning from afar a lot of fun and stress-free. Breanda executed exactly what we had imagined our day to be like! Our 70 guests (including 9 children) from 9 different countries seemed to all find activities that suited them. Not only was it the perfect venue for a celebration of love on a secluded beach in the Caribbean amongst family + friends but it was a fun-filled adventure, where our friends + family had days to get to know each other over happy hours, beach chairs, walks, swims, kayaks, site-seeing, fishing, boating, snorkelling, biking, and long meals. My husband and I stayed there for our honeymoon and upgraded from a bungalow to a villa on the second floor that offered lots of privacy and beautiful views. If you're a fish fan, be sure to try the blackened grouper and the lobster salad. Happy Hour was part of our daily routine - we'd walk the 2 minutes along the beach boardwalk to the Beach House for complementary conch fritters (a local appetizer) while Rashad, Kelly + Jessica whip out delicious cocktails, including my favourite Miami Vice!
We splurged for a treatment by massage therapist Omar + his team, on site at our villa patio with the sounds of ocean in the background. We are already planning our next trip!

Room Tip: Bungalow #14 has a king bed facing the beach view.

I flew in privately to the resort. It cost us $36 for the trip from Stella Maris Airport. The resort is small and a little dated (but clean), but the beach totally made up for the rooms and the service was great. It's one of the nicest beaches I've been to - period. As they say, it's all about location and they have it with their beach. They also take great care of their beach. Someone is cleaning it every morning for sure. Watch out for the mosquitoes!

I also recommend renting a car which they have onsite for $70. Take a trip to Dean's Blue Hole. The food is great, but it gets a little expensive night after night.

My wife and I needed a little get away from the stresses of our business and had heard about Cape Santa Maria at the Sun & Fun Flying Convention. The five day mini vacation was just what the doctor ordered. What a beautiful place! It was quiet, clean, peaceful and just a great place to relax. The staff was extremely friendly, the food was great and we met some super nice folks from all over the world. The beach was amazing. It was almost like having your own private beach. After lounging around on the beautiful beach all day we would head to the lounge for a cool cocktail, chat with other guests and learned a lot about other cultures. The beach bungalow was really quiet, well maintained, clean and comfortable. We have been to other islands in the Bahamas over the years and I must say Long Island is one of the prettiest. If you want a place to do nothing but relax then this is the place.

Room Tip: We chose a bungalow on the beach at the very north end and were extremely pleased. It was quiet and...

We have spend unforgettable time at CSM.
Everything was perfect and either matched or exceeded our expectations.
The beach is absolutely amazing, since you may feel nostalgic every time when you go to a local beach.
Rooms were clean with breathtaking views right out of the window.
The staff was nice, friendly and attentive. I agree with some reviews that the restaurant service was not the fastest in the world, but I personally liked it, since we wanted to go to a remote place with relaxing atmosphere and disconnect from busy city life as much as possible.
This is a perfect place to relax and unplug; servants running around would simply not fit into this picture. Take a moment off, calm down, talk to you loved ones over a nice meal!
I would like to express our special thanks to Brook, Ewa and Breanda for making our wedding a special day which we will remember for the rest of our lives!
We can not wait to come back.

Room Tip: The bungalows are duplexed and the villas are quads (4 units in one building).

Dear Dennis123123,

Thank you taking the time to post a review as we appreciate all feedback received from our guests. I want to thank you for your comments regarding the hotel and specifically our Front Desk staff. In fact, they are the best Front Desk staff I have had the pleasure of working with. I am discouraged to read your comments regarding our restaurant's service staff. Each day we receive warm comments regarding the hospitality, good food and friendly service, so my hope is this is an isolated situation. In such a competitve industry, we are always trying to improve and your comments certainly allow us to assess our service standards and training programs. Hopefully you will think of us for your next beach vacation and give us the opportunity to show you why we were recently rated by Tripadvisor as the #5 resort in all the Caribbean and #1 in the Bahamas!

Best regards,
Brook Castelsky
General Manager
