We didn't stay at the csm. We went there to sit on the beach and have lunch twice. It is beautiful - fine grain white sand beaches with clear blue water so calm. The restaurant was very good as well. The lobster salad is great. My husband had the fish tacos. The staff was super helpful and always friendly.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

The beach and the ocean alone are worth the price of admission but the facilities and staff are top notch. The restaurant and bar are open air with excellent food and drinks. We really enjoyed our 1/2 day reef fishing trip with Capt Gene and Bert. Not only do they provide everything but they also clean all the fish and...

Our family has stayed at Cape Santa Maria three times in the last five years. We could go anywhere else for our spring break, but we know what we like and this resort is exactly the laid back, go-at-your-own-pace (or don't go at all) sort of place our family loves. We've dived with three different dive masters (through both Cape...

Cape Santa Maria is a truly little slice of paradise, very tranquil and serene. That being said I had challenges. I tend to plan every detail of a vacation and struggle with failure to complete my plans. I came with intention of a beautiful island as something to enjoy between scuba dives. Due to weather, my family and I were...

Managers Matt and Darby were beyond outstanding and made sure our experience was unsurpassed. They set the bar very high and clearly the entire staff knows their expectations for providing top notch customer service at every possible opportunity.

You will step into paradise. All rooms are situated on the stunning beach with its crystal clear turquoise water. We stayed in a 1 bed bungalow, which although a little tired was well maintained and clean, bug spray was provided though I didn't get bitten once without it (I am very fortunate as my husband was bitten a lot, even...

Don't get me wrong: we had a amazing time! The hotel is located north of the very wild Long Island. The beach is simply breathtaking: crystal waters, white sand... The bungalows are all facing the beach and are very comfortable. One regret is that most of them do not have a window that allows to face the beach while in...

I'm so late in writing this review and I understand management staff has changed since we were there but going by recent reviews, it's still amazing. This place is just *sighs* paradise. We had a regular bungalow which isn't the fanciest of rooms by any stretch but it was fine for us and we would stay in these again. The...

We have stayed at the Cape the past 2 years and have already booked for next year. The people, water and beach are fantastic. Just what you visualize as the ideal Bahamas location. It take a bit more effort but well worth it. People return each year and it is a common question asked by guests- how many years have...

Incredible beautiful peaceful. Best place on the island and likely in that area of the Caribbean. Up to date and perfectly sized amenities. Only complaint is that we should have requested a bungalow further from the clubhouse, evening bar noise was a bit loud (definitely not a party resort, but it echoes) but always quiet by 11-midnight.
