I'm not going to attempt to compare this AI to crusiing as they are each quite a different...

Cayo Santa Maria is Paradise on Earth. Unspoiled by capitalism, and isolated by 50 kilometers of tide pools, sandbars and mangrove forest, the beach at Santa Maria is among the most beautiful in the world. Twelve kilometers of fine sand, gently caressed by clear warm waters of the Caribbean is sure to satisfy even the the most critical sun worshiper....

My bestfriend and I stayed between March 11-18 to get away for my birthday and it was the best birthday ever! My only complaint is the plane ride on Air transat (most uncomfortable seats that I had ever sat on) but that has nothing to do with the hotel. As soon as we arrived, staff were at the entrance awaiting...

From Ottawa on an evening flight, we took the 11/2 hour bus ride to the hotel resort. The airport was fast and easy, the hotel check-in very quick and the room (a junior suite) very inviting.

We stayed at MCSM March 11-18th. We had a fantastic time! We are both under 35 and found this resort to be quite laid back. A little more of an older crowd so do not expect too much night life. Everything was pretty quiet after 11pm. I would say the nightly shows were above average. They dancers are truly amazing...
