We recently sailed in to the north end of long Island called Cape Santa Maria and anchored for the night. We decided to take a dinghy ride into this resort and check it out.
Although we did not stay at the resort we did stop at the bar and had a very pleasant time.
The resort is immaculate with a beach of fine white powdery sand and lovely white painted chalets. The staff were amazingly attentive and helpful. I would certainly return here for an extended stay.

Room Tip: Check their web site All of the chalets face the beach and have there own porches

It had been several years (too many) since we had last visited Cape Santa Maria. On this visit, we found it to be better than our fondest memories! We flew our Baron to Stella Maris (MYSL) on 27 December, with just enough time to completely unwind in preparation for New Year's Eve. The resort was "JAMMED" - about 80 people for 4 MILES of Pure Sugar White Beach. This has to be Heaven's definition of PERFECT! What a contrast to Everywhere Else! The Staff are tremendous, the food consistently delicious and the prices within reason. The weather was spectacular, the fishing was great and the diving delightful in that amazingly clear water. In fact, our experience was So Good that we considered sending our Passports back and just staying! Without a doubt, we will return "Soon & Often". Don't miss this spectacular Jem! One of the World's Best Experiences! Jim & Darlene L

Room Tip: Treat yourself to one of the privately owned Villas! They are spectacular by any standard!

Our staff are very excited about this prestigous award.

We hope to see you soon.

This was by far our best, most memorable vacation EVER!!! Even our teenage sons were utterly impressed! The food was absolutely amazing. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The beach -- out of this world - eye-popping beautiful, just heavenly! The water -- perfect temperature, incredible color, so relaxing! We could not say enough to express how truly wonderful our visit was. Cape Santa Maria is on the top of our list for suggesting family and friends to visit! No phone or TV in the room was an added bonus! We had complete family time and it was amazing! We would love to visit again and again and again!

I've only been twice but our first time was our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for a better place. The beach, the local staff are amazing! Then we came back with our 2 kids and had even more fun this time. There is never a time that the beach feels busy and the water is beautiful and calm. You walk out your front door to white powder sand and pure bliss. My kids were 3 1/2 & 1 !/2 when we went and I loved that when they went for naps I could grab my baby monitor and stay on the beach and relax you can't do that any other destinations! The restaurant food is amazing and we never really get sick of it! They are willing to make you anything too so don't be afraid to ask! I can't wait till we go again, and maybe someday we will be Villa owners!

Room Tip: We stayed in the bungalows our first time and we liked being on the Villas side cause the beach is a little bit better and right outside your door!

We went there for our honeymoon, and it was great! The only problems we had were with getting to the island itself (there are very few flights to long island each day), but once we were there it was excellent. The staff is very nice and helpful, the villas are extremely nice, and the beach is beautiful, of course.

We were there near the beginning of November, and the weather was mostly cloudy and it was very windy that week. The weather made the water kind of choppy, so we never got a chance to use the kayaks available to guests, but it was still nice enough to be on the beach each day. The staff told us that the weather is almost never like that, however, so we will make a point to go back so we can experience more things.

We didn't do a meal plan, opting to pack our own food to save a little money. The kitchen was fully stocked with cooking utensils and you can have groceries delivered to you if you need anything more.

If you want seclusion and a beach with very few people, this is the place for you. If you want lots of restaurants and clubs, then go somewhere else. But we will definitely be back!
