My wife and myself spent a week in this resort in the summer of 2010, after visiting several US cities. The accomodation is either in bungalows or in a few villas. The villas are, of course, larger and more expensive. We have been staying in one of the bungalows, which are right on the beach ! The bungalows are pretty... More

What an amazing get away. This place definitely wins the most beautiful beach award. If you are looking to just relax in the sun this is your place. The resorts staff were so helpful and friendly. The bungalows are a perfect size and the beach is literally right outside of your front door. It just doesn't get much better than... More

If you are looking for a beautiful beach with good food, this resort is perfect. There isn't much else to do on the island - don't expect shopping or a party scene, but if your expectations are right then you will not be disappointed. What we loved: The staff, conch fritters at happy hour, the beach/water is gorgeous and there... More

The beach and the sea is beautiful. The rooms are just few steps from the beach. The sea is safe for the small children. The quality of dining was sometimes great, but sometimes really less than avarege. Staff was quite helpful. Rooms rather avarege, bathrooms needs renowation. However if you want to spend few days close to nature in a... More

Just finished our 8th year in a row at CSM and we hope to keep the streak going for many more! There is no better place in the Caribbean for total relaxation. In the beachfront bungalows there is no TV, phone and internet may be spotty, there is no pool, but the bathtub warm sea, crystal clear water with hardly... More

When the Bradfords arrive at the Cape it's like welcoming family back home! I loved witnessing you both welcoming new, young couples to your 'paradise found'! It's heartwarming to see guests like yourselves take such pride in the Cape! Thank you for your kind words and your recognition of what are truly the most important aspects of a beach holiday...

We have stayed here 2 years in a row. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Some of them even remembered us from last year! The beach is gorgeous! We snorkeled right off the beach a few times.

Thank you Wendi! It is so awesome to hear you enjoyed your return visit to the Cape. Snorkelling right off the end of the boardwalk is a real treat.

This was our sixteenth visit to Long Island. In the past we have always rented a house but splurged for a week's stay at The Cape. It was lovely and the staff was extraordinary. The ladies at the front desk always had a smile on their faces and always called us by name. Housekeeping was terrific and each day remembered... More

My husband and I recently spent 5 days/4 nights at CSM Beach Resort. We stayed in a beach bungalow--probably the smallest one--and it was perfect for us; a king-sized bed looking out to the pristine beach just steps away. The unit was modest, but clean. It felt very "authentic" as far as we expected an island resort to be. The... More
