Just finished our 8th year in a row at CSM and we hope to keep the streak going for many more! There is no better place in the Caribbean for total relaxation. In the beachfront bungalows there is no TV, phone and internet may be spotty, there is no pool, but the bathtub warm sea, crystal clear water with hardly... More

When the Bradfords arrive at the Cape it's like welcoming family back home! I loved witnessing you both welcoming new, young couples to your 'paradise found'! It's heartwarming to see guests like yourselves take such pride in the Cape! Thank you for your kind words and your recognition of what are truly the most important aspects of a beach holiday...

We have stayed here 2 years in a row. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Some of them even remembered us from last year! The beach is gorgeous! We snorkeled right off the beach a few times.

Thank you Wendi! It is so awesome to hear you enjoyed your return visit to the Cape. Snorkelling right off the end of the boardwalk is a real treat.

This was our sixteenth visit to Long Island. In the past we have always rented a house but splurged for a week's stay at The Cape. It was lovely and the staff was extraordinary.

My husband and I recently spent 5 days/4 nights at CSM Beach Resort. We stayed in a beach bungalow--probably the smallest one--and it was perfect for us; a king-sized bed looking out to the pristine beach just steps away. The unit was modest, but clean. It felt very "authentic" as far as we expected an island resort to be. The... More

The location is amazing with Beautiful beach, calm water and fantastic sunsets. The evenings were peaceful and star filled. The food was excellent and a pleasant surprise. The meal plan was an exceptional value. The fruit and vegetables were fresh and creatively prepared.

The term 'escape' is commonly used by our guests to describe their time at Cape Santa Maria. In an often complicated world, we are thrilled you managed a peaceful few days spent along our beautiful stretch of beach. Even on our busiest days, there is plenty of room to soak in the quiet, clear the mind, and recharge the batteries.... More

Our villa was simply luxurious, very well equipped and decorated with great style. Just meters from the dream beach. Cooking is first class on international level. Staff in service and front desk very nice, helpful. Size of the resort is perfect to feel individually hosted.
