Our time on Cayo Espanto is something we will never forget. From the moment you arrive to the time the staff wishes you farewell on the dock, all of you worries seem to drift away. Our housemen were outstanding and we looked forward to Chef meeting us every afternoon with our menu for that nights meal-- We did the Day...

We traveled to Cayo Espanto from Belfast Northern Ireland this summer, and wow was it a trip. Our travel took 2 days to get there, with a total of 4 planes and 1 boat ride. We stayed in the villa Casa Estrella From when your trip is booked, the staff are in constant contact with you to learn about you,...

This is an amazing small resort with five star service. The rooms are on the water with your own pool and your own dock. For food they prepare whatever you like and even setup romantic dinners every night. I highly recommend taking a helicopter to the island as it is beautiful. You can also take the helicopter to see the...

Wow, this place is unbelievably great! Fantastic setting, great food (not good, but great) and the service is unparalleled. Our 2! Butlers/housemen was bringing delicious food and drinks every time we used the magic WalkieTalkie! We only stayed for one night, but it left quite an impression.

This was our second visit to Cayo Espanto and as before we were beyond impressed. This is not a resort – it’s an experience. This visit we stayed in Casa Estrella, a two bedroom villa with the most amazing views of the Caribbean. Once again, the staff was incredible - Rosita, Eddie, Chef et al are amazing. We celebrated our...

All photos in this review were taken by me with an iPhone. Casa Brisa is a one bedroom villa, it's very spa sous but trust me you're not going to be indoors a lot. The food is very good and fairly fast delivered. We had a cheese plate, pasta salad and fruit plate for a snack mid day and it...

We loved Belize and Cayo Espanto! The whole experience was amazing. I recommend the day at sea. We stayed in Casa Salona and had amazing sunset dinners every night. The bonefish were plentiful and the staff was always on the lookout for us.

It is expensive. But what you are paying for is complete ease. All excursions are on your own with whatever personnel you need, not in a group. Meals are whatever time you want to eat. Drinks snacks whatever, the staff is there for you when you want them and that creates a leisure that is impossible to reproduce even at...

The overall experience was incredible from the moment you arrived in the airport where representatives took you through customs, to the personalized arrival with the entire staff greeting you, to the attentive service and attention to detail. The service was exceptional. We had Luis and stayed in Solana which was nice since it was on the corner of the island....
