Idyllic Spot A review of Cape Santa Maria Beach Resort & Villas
My husband and I just got back from a week at Cape Santa Maria Beach Resort. What a great holiday! Wendy, Frank, and their staff made us feel very welcome and the pristine property, the beautiful view, unbelievable beach (the sand is NEVER hot on your feet!), good food, free bicycles and kayaks, nearby snorkeling, the total lack of crowds, and the wonderful people we met there made our holiday one of the best we've ever had!
Of course we heard about the robberies that occurred to some of the members of a wedding party that were guests during our stay at the resort: that was most unfortunate. We really felt sorry for the people who lost valuables. It's a tough thing to go through.
However, as resort guests who were not part of the wedding group, we would like to add another perspective. To be fair, although guests can't lock their doors while they are out of their rooms, every bungalow has a free in-room safe in which to keep their valuables. In addition, upon our arrival, the staff indicated that we could use the inside bolts on the doors to "lock yourselves in at night." Since we always lock our doors no matter where we are, we had no problem at all with theft even though we were in the same area as those bungalows that were burglarized. Other guests near us who also had the habit of locking themselves in at night were also not burglarized.
We all have to be responsible and accountable for using any security measures available to us in order to protect ourselves, our families, and our property, no matter where we are.
We absolutely loved the resort and look forward to our next trip there.
