My boyfriend and I visited from Feb 10 to 16/2013. We had a great time at Playa Cayo Santa Maria. The resort layout was great with easy access to nice pools, great food and the beautiful beach. There was plenty to do from water activities, meals, drinks, snacks or entertainment but quiet time at the pool or the beach was easy to find also. The resort staff were very helpful and friendly and there were plenty of choices of delicious foods available in ths buffet, snack bar, sandwich stands and 4 à la carte restaurants. There were a few lines at the grills or stations at the buffet but they moved quickly. There were many bars available and we never had to wait for drinks. The beach was incredible with soft white sand and turquoise water. The only issue I had was with my shellfish allergy on lobster night at the buffet and at an à la carte. I was able to eat outside at the buffet, but I had to leave one dinner early. Check the menu when booking dinners if you have an allergy, the seafood aroma was too much for me to handle, but everyone else seemed to really enjoy it. I really recommend this resort for couples and families.
