Cayo Espanto
Ranked #26 of 54 Hotels in San Pedro
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 16, 2004

We spent 5 extraordinary days in 12/04 in Casa Manana at Cayo Espanto. It is difficult to write this review because words cannot truly convey the outrageous excellence of this place. Having spent time at Jumby Bay, Four Seasons Nevis, and La Sammana, we feel we have a relatively good perspective on excellence. Cayo Espanto is the summitt that none of the other resorts came close to reaching.

The five star system doesn't apply here. We had a private villa, with walls that could be completely opened to the gorgeous azure sea. Two housemen were at our beckon call at all times, and Leo, our main guy, provided the best service either of us had ever experienced.

All of our snorkeling trips were led by a divemaster who spent three hours showing us the various fish and coral, and dealing with me, a total geek who can barely swim. Totally charming, and never condescending.

All the meals were served in our villa, with votive lighting. All drinks were provided freely. All the fish and lobster were in the water several hours before preparation. The conch cerviche was beyond belief.

I have never encountered a more majical wonderful place. The expense is extreme, but worth every penny. Please e-mail me if you have an questions at aadesmd@yahoo.com.

I keep looking for that little man saying La Plane, La Plane!!!

It is impossible to match this anywhere in the world. The service is the best in the world. The massages are fantastic. Whatever you can think of, they can do for you. The people in San Pedro are warm and friendly. It just slows you down, the beauty, the water, the food, endless fantasy. Expensive but when you consider what is included nothing can touch it for value.

note to self. Take the plane from belize city no matter how sketchy it seems.
