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

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

What a special place! We recently returned from an extended family vacation (14 of us!) and spent 4 nights at CSM. My husband and I, two boys ages 16 & 18 shared a villa-the screened in porch was great at night. Every detail was thought of, candle and matches for the porch, umbrella in the closet (not that we needed... More

After 6 months planning this trip, reading tons of reviews, looking at lots of pictures, etc I was still amazed at this island, this resort and the staff! My husband was worried that I would be disappointed when we got there because of all the research I did and ranting/raving with excitement to get there. He couldn't help but tell... More

Just returned from PARADISE! What a wonderful place! The staff was amazing, and the villa we had was spectacular. I went bonefishing every day, and my wife and our friends really enjoyed the spectacular beach and wonderful ambiance. Can't wait to return. Richard & Susannah North Andover, MA

Just stopped in there for lunch, food was good but very pricey. Didn't get good vibes from the staff or guests , too snooty for me.

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
