This place is stunning and the attention to detail is spot on. This is by far one of my favorite luxury travel experiences (hard to beat a yacht)! The food was delicious and chef was creative and open to create off menu items. The island is small but still feels very private and intimate; only spent 4 days so didn't...

So I had read the reviews and went ahead and booked 5 nights in Estrella for my husband and I plus our 15 and 17 year old sons. But I was nervous about whether this romantic place would appeal to all the family. It was a massive hit all round. The staff are without exception, exceptional. Warm, authentic, thoughtful and...

If you've read other reviews I've posted, even of world class hotels, you know I'm stingy with praise. Not this time. Cayo Espanto is perfect. It lives up to whatever expectations you have, without seeming to try. Wow. We spent five nights in Casa Solana with our daughter. I highly recommend Casa Solana. It is the most private of the...

Tiny island with 7 villas. Service unbelievable...our housemen, Obed and Eddie, had us figured out in one day...cocktails, early coffee, and discretion. Daily checkins from staff to insure satisfaction. Menus/cuisine extraordinary. Spa services excellent. Services from housemen included Hobie Cat sailing, fresh flowers and anything we asked. We are septuagenarians and world travellers still on our bucket lists, but neither...

When you want to be spoiled this is it. We have travelled around the world with a small group and this is the best place we have ever experienced. Great service from beginning to end, food that is spectacular and accommodations that are second to none.

Cayo Espanto has got to be one of the most romantic places in the world. 2 hour flight from Dallas, arrived at airport and was greeted by their staff whom escorted us straight through customs and to our helicopter ride to the island. Upon arrival we were met with cool cloths and our first Island drink. The entire staff was...

We spent 6 nights at Cayo Espanto to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary and had the time of our lives! Everything was absolutely perfect - the staff, the food, the drinks, accommodations. Casa Solana is by far the best spot, wrap-around deck and beautiful views of the sunset every night. We were pampered and waited on, yet it was so...

My wife spent four amazing nights and 5 days here, staying at Casa Estrella. The most romantic place ever! The accommodations, staff, and food were all absolutely fantastic. The snorkeling was amazing, and every night they set up a romantic dinner for two somewhere differently. Recommend taking the helicopter from the airport to the island, great views. We'll definitely return...

Can we give it 6 STARS or 10!! This place is AMAZING!! Definitely a dream come true for us and we've stayed all over the world in some very nice places. Cayo Espanto tops them all. Fight from Houston was quick, 2 1/2 hours, followed by a puddle jumper to San Pedro and then quick boat ride to the island....

Ya'll. This place is what you dream about at night, or daydream during work about just getting away. I am a newbie to the travel world - this was my first international trip/flight/stamp in my passport. We flew with Southwest Airlines from Houston which was a breeze flight - 2-ish hours to Belize City. Upon arriving in Belize City, Emilio...
