We recently returned from our first trip to Stella Maris resort. We stayed in the Rainbow House. The whole property at the resort is very well maintained, landscaped, clean, and quiet. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. We will definately go again. We had a hard time deciding whether to stay on the rocky Atlantic side at Stella Maris or on the calm Carribean side at Cape Santa Maria resort. We visited Cape Santa Maria resort one day for lunch/beach, and although it is very beautiful there, there is nothing to do other than stare at blue water. We made the right decision staying at Stella Maris resort, as there was always a breeze, crashing of waves, and large property. We rented a car and visited Deans Blue hole and also found a beautiful secret beach down a long isolated road near Clarence town. We had our two teenage kids with us and they loved the resort as well. Only recommendation is that the gift shop could have some snack/drinks for purchase so that guests could keep these in their rooms. Beautiful resort, highly recommended, will return. Food was awesome as was the pizza delivered to the room. Spring for Rainbow House if you have large group, huge home with private gazebo and infinity pool. The resort recommended an excursion to Sandy Cay....this is a MUST and is the most beautiful place in the world.
