We loved our stay at Cape Santa Maria! The beach is beautiful and the there are no crowds! We had the beach to ourselves and found that it was the perfect place to unwind and enjoy a Kalik! My kids ages 7 and 9 loved using the kayaks to explore the calm ocean waters. The day that we arrived, we found several dozen starfish along the shallow waters near the beach. We split our vacation (staying 4 days at Atlantis water park) and my kids definitely loved Cape Santa Maria in Long Island more!

Although my take on the meals is less than enthusiastic, this is not a reason to not come here. I agree with the vast bulk of glowing reviews; beach, cottages, service, and so on. It's not that the food is bad, its just not up to the quality of the rest of the experience of being here. Menu is very light on salads and fresh fruit. At the end of a week stay, lack of variety starts to weigh heavily. Dining room service was erratic and on an occasion or two, surly. This wouldn't keep me from coming back. I just wish management would pay more attention here, making a stay at Cape Santa Maria absolutely perfect.

Room Tip: Ask for cottage away from main building - less foot traffic in front of your veranda.

Dear kwieder,

Thank you very much for the great review and we appreciate the feedback. I am sorry to hear that you were left with anything less than a stellar impression of the service in our dining room. We are always working to improve the service levels throughout the entire resort. Each year we hire a trainer from our Canadian operations to assist in training our staff. In fact, this year we are focusing on the service in our dining room. I sincerely hope you choose Cape Santa Maria for your next beach vacation, and I am confident you will be as impressed as many others continue to be.

I am a little surprised to hear your comments regarding the selection of salads because we receive a great deal of positive feedback in this regard. People tell us they enjoy the Pear and Blue Cheese Salad, the Long Island Lobster Salad or the Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna Salad. In addition, the Crescent Beach Salad or Lobster Terriene are very popular. Of course, there is always the Classic Caesar or traditional Bahamian Conch Salad.

We hope to see you at Cape Santa Maria for your next beach vacation.

Brook Castelsky
General Manager

On the way to Haiti Stella Maris makes a great aviation fuel stop. Decided to spend the night on the way back the island looked so beautiful on the way down. So glad I did will make Cape Santa Maria it's own destination in the future. The cottage was wonderful, the beach picture perfect...coming from someone who grew up in Hawaii-Oahu. Really enjoyed the restaurant, and more importantly the staff and couple that manage the resort were present and personally involved in making sure you had everything to make you comfortable. It's one of those places that's hard to believe exists.

Room Tip: Beach front cottage

Dear PappyBoynton,

Greetings from Paradise! Thank you for the kind review. We are glad you had a chance to stop at Cape Santa Maria on your way to Haiti. Cape Santa Maria is a fun destination for pilots. In fact, over 35% of our guests fly their own plane to Stella Maris Air port, only minutes from Cape Santa Maria. As you say, Stella Maris has AV gas and it is a Port of Entry. We look forward to seeing you once again. Perhaps you should join one of our fly-in groups in early November!

Brook Castelsky,
General Manager

If you want to completely unwind, no question, go directly to Cape Santa Maria. The beach can not be beat, the new villas are spectacular and best of all, there are no crowds. It is a great place for families, or couples, or for that matter, even on your own. We have been going to the Cape for 10 years now, and each time we go, we always say, we have to come back sooner next time!!

Room Tip: They are all directly on the beach, but the new villas are worth the extra price.

Dear IIIIIII99,

Greetings from Paradise! Thank you for the great review. We agree, the villas are worth it. They are well laid out, private and execellent for a couple or family. I personaly love the view from the villas on the second floor, however many guests prefer to be on the lower level where they can walk straight to the beach. We look forward to seeing you for an eleventh year, and yes, come back sooner!

All the best,
Brook Castelsky

Beautiful, relaxing. Words can hardly express what a wonderful time we had. Our family, which includes 3, 17-24 year old daughters, had an incredible experience. This was our first trip but will not be our last. The service was beyond compare, and the noticeable lack of people made it our own island paradise. wow!
