This was an amazing destination for our honeymoon. It was devoid of the typical distractions that can occur at a resort. Just amazing sand, crystal clear water, excellent food and quiet time with my wife...what more could you want?

The best relaxing Caribbean beach experience ever! It may not be the Four Seasons, however, the exceptionally beautiful location and relaxed quality service makes Cape Santa Maria our preferred choice and a 'must visit' resort. We are definitely returning!
