  • If you want to have the most beautiful vacation ever, then this is your place. Don't even bother looking elsewhere. I did so much research on peaceful and uncrowded resorts and this was the one I chose. Most people would be content with visiting Nassau or the exumas. I urge you to go a little further. Long island is amazing. Smiling faces everywhere along with a friendly wave. The roads aren't the greatest but really you won't be on them long. It's a short ride in a taxi to the resort. As soon as we stepped out of the cab it greeted us, the sounds and smells of paradise. We were greeted with joy and handed pamphlets on what the island has to offer. We settled into our Villa and looked out our front door to the most beautiful picturesque scene we have ever gazed upon. I didn't even know beauty like this exsisted in real life. The color of the water and the white sand brought a tear to my eyes. I don't know if I will ever be able to match that level of beauty in my life again. I have included pictures of the area but they will not be as amazing as seeing it in person. Our hosts Matt and Darby, along with the rest of the staff at Cape Santa Maria, were so amazing. We had many great conversations with them over the week we stayed there. We were suggested a few things to do over the course of the stay that we are glad we experienced. We took a bike ride to the Columbus monument which had stunning views, went on a pig excursion which included conch catching and a delicious conch salad prepared for us by our incredible captain Colton. Speaking of delicious food, we ate almost every single meal in the restaurant right there at the resort. Every thing we tried was amazing. Our favorites were breakfast foods like avocado toast and their omelette. During happy hour (from 5-6 each day) they serve free conch fritters which were delightful. Oh we also tried almost every mixed drink on the menu and they were all delicious. I'm partial to the bahama mama or rum punch, my girlfriend loved the Nothing Compares to Blue. I could go on and on about this place but just take my word for it (and everyone else's) and just book it as your next vacation. And do yourself a favor if you can and stay longer than a week. It's just not enough time.
  • This is where tranquil vacation meets best beach.
