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!

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

Just arrived back from our 2nd visit to Cape Santa Maria...boy oh boy do we miss the beach! Last time we went, it was just my wife and I and she literally found out we were having our first child on the day we arrived home (shout out to the fertility magic in #21!)

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. On the days that the Stella Maris people did not visit (what a commotion they made sheeesh...) it felt like we were the last two... More

The beach at Cape Santa Maria is amazing. The beach is long, the sand is perfect and the water is crystal clear. But equally amazing is the calmness of the water and the shallow depth especially during low tide. Our 2 year old was able to stand in the water 30ft from shore during low tide. It is a perfect...
