Our trip to Cayo Espanto was an "11". The accommodations and the food were both wonderful (Kudos to Patrick, the head chef), but the overall quality of the staff and outstanding service is what was truly impressive. The people who work here make this a truly special place. Everything they do is focused on your enjoyment. We had a tremendously... More

Let me tell you, this was the best honeymoon ever. We just knew about this place looking for over the water bungalow. Bora-Bora was too far and in November does not have the best weather. This place is just 90 minutes from Miami or Dallas. You will rent a private Villa, ours over the water ( Casa Ventana ). You... More

My wife and I went for our first trip to Cayo Espanto in Oct 2013 for our 20th wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived in Belize City, we were taken care of like royalty. Our bags were handled all the way to our villa. We were met by the entire staff along with (2) Espanto Waves (you must try... More

I just don't have the word to describe our wonderful, fun and exciting, perfect, getaway trip to celebrate our 20th anniversary at Cayo Espanto. . San Pedro was a blast! Staying at the villa one day never leaving our private dock was sooooo relaxing and being completely taken care of by our Houseman Elio and Rick! (Elio I meant it... More

We looked everywhere online for a fabulous resort to visit over our holiday break, but could not find anyplace that compared to Cayo Espanto, where we'd gone in July...so we went again! The staff at Cayo Espanto made our Christmas so wonderfully relaxing and special!! The privacy there is our favorite part, but we totally love the pampering and delicious... More

We stayed at Cayo for a week in late November, 2013. Our expectations were sky high going into the trip, and I can say without reservation they were greatly exceeded. We had somewhat bad luck with weather (strong winds most of the time and rain on a few days), we still had an amazing experience. We stayed in Casa Manana,... More

Wow! I've travelled the world and have stayed in many luxury hotels but I've never experienced the level of service we received at Cayo Espanto. Our "housemen" spoiled us without being too overbearing. They showed up at all the right times. Upon arrival the whole staff was standing on our private dock welcoming us. It made us feel so special!... More

My new husband booked this for our honeymoon as a surprise for me. Imagine my surprise when I found out we were spending 5 days on a tropical island with every amenity known to man and service of a quality that I have never experienced before. From the moment we stepped off the plane in Belize City we were met... More

This is an overdue review! My husband and I are approaching our three year anniversary and naturally we thought about Cayo Espanto. We stayed here in 2010 for our honeymoon and had an amazing time. My husband told me he felt like James Bond the entire time we were there. We stayed at casa solano and the views were breath... More
