Could not have been happier with our experience. Beautiful setting and everyone was so friendly and helpful. Long Island was the highlight of our four-stop vacation and Cape Santa Maria played a large part in that.

We travel a lot. This was our first visit here. I was so impressed by the accommodations and the wonderful staff. No matter what time of day, you are always greeted with a big smile and friendly conversations! You can choose to be as private as you want, or take part in fun activities. Matt and Darby are two wonderful...

Spent a weekend with some friends at Cape Santa Maria and it was wonderful. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo units and it was quite comfortable. Plenty of seating for 4 people, lovely kitchen and bathrooms, and spectacular view from both the living room and screened patio. Only drawback is the mosquitos and the hotel...

Great place. The 2 managers are attentive and excellent. Bungalow was simple but very adequate. Right on the beach literally just steps from the beautiful water. Would definitely return. Screened patio was great. Food was good.

We will hold you to your promise to return! So happy you enjoyed your time with us. We just started the process of renovating our ten 'northern' bungalows. Stay tuned for some great improvements and comprehensive updates. One thing that won't change is they will remain steps away from that beautiful water you enjoyed just days ago. Thank you for...

Well, that was veeeery disappointing! Supposed five star? Certainly not for service! My wife and I visited after returning from visiting the Columbus monument for a celebrity wedding anniversary lunch. After we seated ourselves we were asked by one of three surly waitresses "what you want?" No hello, etc, or even a menu given until asked. Turning and going away...

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to the Cape Santa Maria bar and dining room. Although I much prefer to hear when we have surpassed our guests' expectations, it is often of greater value to understand when we have fallen short. Please accept my personal apology for the less than stellar service you encountered. Opening...

My wife and myself spent a week in this resort in the summer of 2010, after visiting several US cities. The accomodation is either in bungalows or in a few villas. The villas are, of course, larger and more expensive. We have been staying in one of the bungalows, which are right on the beach ! The bungalows are pretty...

Thank you for your review! I am happy to report that, not only have we updated our A/C units since your 2010 visit, we are also currently in the midst of a full renovation of our beachside Bungalows.

If you are looking for a beautiful beach with good food, this resort is perfect. There isn't much else to do on the island - don't expect shopping or a party scene, but if your expectations are right then you will not be disappointed.

Thank you for this great review of Cape Santa Maria. Long Island certainly is a serene Caribbean paradise away from the hustle of Nassau and Freeport. It is the perfect place to unwind and get away from it all. Despite the lack of a downtown shopping district or a nightclub scene, we feel that there are countless things to do...
