I came across a CNN article that named Cayo Espanto as one of the 10 best over water hut resort locations, which piqued my interest to contact them regarding reservations for my honeymoon. The prompt correspondence and thorough information provided by the US based staff solidified our desire to confirm our reservation, which proved to be the best choice for...

My husband and I visited here for our anniversary. It was a wonderful, once in a lifetime experience. We chose Casa Solana and that was the perfect choice. It's on the sunset side of the island so I would sit on the deck and watch the sunset for at least an hour every night. It was very private, though you...

We spent 7 days on Cayo Espanto and have fallen in love all over again.... With each other and with this wonderful resort. Our Days were spent swimming in the shallow waters around the island, snorkeling on the reef, eating the most fantastic food we have ever had in the islands and just enjoying the island. We had no bugs,...

Amazing!!! I was there in November and this trip still ranks in my top 3. In fact, it probably always will. It's hard to top the A+ service, food and location offered by Cayo Espanto. The people in Belize are some of the nicest I have met anywhere in the world. They truly welcome you and make you want to...

Cayo Espanto is a great place to unwind and get away from stress and a busy schedule. The staff was incredible and the villas amazing. The only problem we had is the "sea lice" that they never tell you about until you get there. So don't plan on any snorkeling or swimming off your private villa because it is all...

This isn't going to be a long review. Because there's very little I can say about Cayo Espanto that hasn't been said here already. But I do have a question for anyone who's actually stayed at Cayo Espanto: Can you name any resort destination anywhere in the world that is more scenic AND more luxurious than Cayo Espanto? I certainly...

Actual trip date was August 2010 not 2011. We stayed in Casa Ventanas which now has a window on the floor so you can watch the fish swim underneath your bungalow! I was a little concerned about some of negative reviews but I we were pleasantly surprised; bugs, no water fleas. Food was absolutely amazing (you run out of room...

To summarize our experience at Cayo Espanto one must first understand that as seasoned travelers we have high expectations. Like most of your guests we are Ritz Carlton regulars. The “average” amenities and accommodations are certainly acknowledged; however, superiority is not an easy quest. It requires a few things. First, things must run like a finely tuned machine, and secondly,...

From the minute the boat picked us up at the dock in San Pedro - we knew were in for a special experience. Stepping off that boat onto Cayo Espanto was just as it looked in pictures, beautiful and so peaceful. This paradise is everything we could have imagined and more!

We are world travelers. Our experience at Cayo Espanto was not 5 star. 3 at best. The villas are exactly as you see them online. The beds are indeed very comfortable. The meals were hit or miss. On three occasions the Chef was not capable of producing an entree temperature of medium rare. (In our opinion, this should be mastered...
