Reviews for Starfish Cayo Santa Maria
Just returned from a week at the Starfish. I valued everyone's reviews so thought that I should write my own. When we arrived, we headed straight for the ocean. Breathtaking. Honestly, there cannot be a beach anywhere in this world that is more beautiful. White sand, warm water the bluest of all blues. Perfection. Bring goggles! We used them everyday. Not too much to see other than brilliant blue water but we did come across some friendly fish and a huge red sea star. On our last day, we spotted jellyfish! I only saw a few but we all got stung in what looked like jellyfish free water. They are clear and pretty much impossible to see. If the water is calm, beware. The pool was fantastic. Huge and clean and the perfect temperature. Tons of lounge chairs. Bartenders at the pool bar did not look happy. No idea why. I loved walking around the grounds and admiring the gorgeous plants and trees. My daughter loved catching geckos (or trying to). Mosquitos were pretty bad. Staff fumigated so they try to control them but every evening I was eaten alive. The buffets were very repetitive. Often times I would see the same dinner items being served for breakfast the next morning. And once an item was gone, it was gone, never replenished. I was a drill sargeant in the mornings getting my kids to the breakfast buffet before 7:30. Anytime after that and the lovely mango juice and yoghurts were gone, never to be seen again. I found it odd that they had NO spoons! I had to laugh. You can get them on special request but even then, I had to ask 2 or 3 times. How do they expect one to eat the cereal and yoghurt they provide?? Even the ice cream...My kids ate cereal with a fork and sucked yoghurt out of the container. An odd tip but bring a spoon! So very very strange. Our room was fine. Spacious and clean with a nice balcony. Swim with a tshirt on. We all layered on the 60spf sunblock and still got burned. The sun is so intense. The nightly entertainment was ok. Although I had no idea what was going on and where. Front desk staff had no info. And there were no signs indicating the weeks schedule which would have been very helpful. The staff should be well informed with the resorts happenings so guests aren't left with constant questions. So a few minor complaints but overall, a great vacation. I came for an awesome beach and pool and I got more than I expected so what more could I ask for.

I was in this resort by myself. Had an amazing vacation here. The service is really good and the food is good too. The most outstanding thing is the people that work here. All of them are amazing. The beach is beautiful too. I was in Building 01 Room 0142 so clean and comfortable, excellent maid Daily. I will come back.

This was my third time visiting the starfish and it just keeps getting better. The staff always have smiles on their faces and are very pleasant. The entertainment was so much fun from foam parties, to amazing beach parties. If your looking for an amazing place to vacation the starfish is the place to go! I definitely recommend the starfish!
