From my initial contact with Russell and Erika at Cayo Espanto, everything was totally painless!! :) Which continued throughout the whole adventure!!! Upon arrival we were greeted by Emilio, who went over and above to make sure everything was taken care of -- he greeted us upon arrival and also on departure. Once arriving on the island, we were greeted... More

Do you ever find yourself dreaming of life on a deserted island, where there was no one but you and your special someone, yet fabulous food, over the top service and every single need/want was fulfilled? That was my week at Cayo. From the moment we landed, the experience exceeded any we have had in the past and we have... More

What an AMAZING place! We arrived in San Pedro and were greeted with a personal assistant (Emilio) to usher us through security and get us on our way. Arrived by helicopter (worth EVERY penny - DO IT!!). Pilot was amazing - pointing out different sites - shark alley & barrier reef low fly over - so good! Staff was attentive... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary on this idyllic island. It is 2.5 acres of absolute paradise. The natural beauty is breathtaking, but the food, service, spa treatments and excursions are over the top. Jesus and Luis were our housemen and they provided just the perfect amount of service. At our beckon call by two way radio, but otherwise,... More

The pampering began when we walked off the airplane and took a private helicopter to the island. Emilio met us and walked us through the customs. He helped me on the helicopter, then it was off to a beautiful view of the blue hole and the coral reef. When we landed the entire staff was there to greet us with... More

We will never forget this location. The staff, including our own houseman, the chef, the beach cottage. It was wonderful. Just relax and take it all in. This was the best experience ever. The service started when we landed in Belize City, and continued until we left the airport. We were even provided a travel lunch in a cold bag... More

I had the perfect vacation in my head and Cayo Espanto made it come true. Our family of 5 (children ages 7, 12, 15) spent our last 4 nights in Belize here in Casa Estrella. This will be the one and only place in the world we will return to. It actually lives up to the hype. Celebrity treatment from... More

We are incredibly picky travelers and expect very high standards. We have stayed at many of the top rated resorts across the globe (Jade mountain, Parrot Cay, COMO resorts across the globe, Baros in the Maldives, etc...) and the experience we had was like none other that we have ever experienced. From the very moment we landed in Belize City... More

We just returned yesterday from Cayo Espanto. From the moment you arrive in Belize City to the time the staff is waving goodbye, you are treated like royalty. We stayed in Casa Olita and Obed and Jonathan took care of us. My husband loves to fly fish so he spent a lot of time getting to know the island from... More

Cayo Espanto is one of the few places I've been to that I know I will return to. This place is beyond great if you are looking for R & R. In fact, I look forward to going back just because now...I get the drill....I know more about how to maximize my experience...not that it wasn't over the top, mind... More
