My wife and myself along with our four children spent Christmas at the Cape. What an amazing stay we had! The Villa was more than what we could of ever expected. This is possibly the most beautiful place we have ever visited and are already planning our next stay. What really made this memorable though, was the staff. They are... More

Our second stay at CSM, and it can't get much better. We miss the place already after 3 days back. This is arguably one of the most lovely beaches in the world, and the powder-fine sand is just wonderful. Essentially no waves, and calm waters for paddle boarding or sea kayaks. The resort keeps an adequate supply of lounges out... More

Destination resort away from everything. Food at the resort is very good and accommodations better than most in the islands. Employees were friendly and helpful, wifi good but limited to the main building. Good place to sit on the beach and drink! Not much else to do!

I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay at Cape Santa Maria Beach Resort. We have very high standards for our food, accommodation, staff and all other facets of the resort, so I’m happy to hear those standards are being met. Although the stunning beach is certainly a big reason why many of our guests stay with us, we do offer... More

Back to CSM for our 3rd time, This is an especially well maintained resort (and if you spend much time in the islands, you will really appreciate that) Low buildings set back just slightly off the beach into the palm trees, this resort is truly ON the beach. Every morning started with a stunning view of crystal clear water lapping... More

Please note this review is way overdue -- our stay was March, 2013 ... Santa Maria has a beautiful beach/water with no crowds. There was some families there but were well behaved and quiet – it is mostly couples. The bungalows have screened porches that are about 30-50 feet from the beach – that worked well for us. Food can... More

Cape Santa Maria is a Magical Paradise that everyone needs to visit. We arrived at the Stella Maris Airport on Long Island, Bahamas and the island warmth hit our faces. As we traveled down an island road with mangroves on either side, thinking where are we and we need a drink. Suddenly we arrived at Cape Santa Maria and the... More

We stayed a week at Cape Santa Maria last week and must say the beach was second to none. The rooms need updating and maintenance. Maintenance was lacking throughout most of the resort. A little paint goes along ways. The showers have shower curtains and the tubs are heavenly rust stained and chipped and need updating. The service is the... More

I stayed here about 20 years ago for a 4-day weekend in the spring. There were only two resorts on the island - the Cape Santa Maria and the Stella Maris at the opposite end.
