Great place great staff great service and good food in a location that (luckily) it's not for all. Kilometers of sandy beach just in front of your bungalows, nice and clean bungalows lovely service for dinner, never too crowded. Nice aperitifs with conch fritters at 5, enjoy the laziness of this piece of paradise, eat lobsters every night or pick... More

This was our first visit to Long Island and Cape Santa Maria Beach Resort. We've been exploring the Bahamian out-islands for years and prefer their quiet laid-back experience over larger, highly developed resorts. There's an authenticity and funk-factor in the out-islands you just don't get anywhere else. So for starters, if you're after a "go-go" vacation with lots of attractions,... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a very detailed review of Cape Santa Maria Resort. Long Island is one of the more remote islands in the Bahamas and is ideal for those looking for a serene, quiet retreat from the crowded bustle of Nassau. The natural beauty of our beaches and the calm clear water provide a relaxing... More

Beautiful beach, great weather, relaxing, clean and comfortable. Myself and a buddy flew our airplanes into their private airstrip just a short walk away from the resort. Perfect for folks with their own airplane. While the runway is a bit rugged I would not hesitate to base out of there again. We met other folks who had flown in too... More

It is always great to read a review from someone who has flown into the private airstrip. In fact, one third of all the guests at Cape Santa Maria fly their own planes. I am happy that you were able to meet other guests who also flew in, and enjoyed a day of island hopping to truly experience the beauty... More

We just finished a very enjoyable week at Cape Santa Maria. We stayed in one of the beachfront bungalows which was very nice and quite large. We have stayed in other fairly remote island resorts in the past, and these bungalows are the nicest that we have experienced. There was a large screened patio with comfortable furniture, an in room... More

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your week’s visit to our wonderful resort. We are lucky to be located on such a beautiful, remote island with such an amazing beach.
