“Favorite Vacation Getaway Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2013

This is my FAVORITE VACATION GETAWAY SPOT!! Whether traveling alone, with someone special, or with a group Stella Maris Resort always delivers a personalized vacation experience. I've travelled here on holiday with friends and family for over 35 years and every visit is better than the last one (if that is possible). Now into the third generation this is an ideal repeat vacation destination. The hotel rooms and home rentals are ideal; and the island experience is refreshingly unique!!! A 'must-do' location - over and over again!!!!

GO!!! After having traveled to a number of the Bahamian islands, long Island, and in particular, Stella Maris, is the highpoint of all those trips. Jill, Joel and the rest of the staff @ Stella Maris go out of their way to make sure you have the trip of a lifetime. My son and I were there to fish and while the fishing was tremendous, the stay at Stella Maris exceeded all our expectations. The accomadations, food, service, and beauty of the resort and surroundings are all first rate. Don't miss the Friday Conch fritter/Rum Punch gathering!

Stella Maris was a wonderful place to reconnect with our kids. We’ve been there twice and have loved it each time, looking at the photos constantly and delighting in the memories. Our 11-year-old also did his open water scuba certification there with the support of dive instructor Robert. Bravo, Maclain! Thank you, Robert!

Room Tip: I like the villas by the water for the breeze and the sound of the waves - Rainbow, Dolphin, Flaming...

Isn't this a great place to learn to dive? I'll never forget my resort course and first dive with Peter - is it really more than 20 years ago?!? That first peek of the color and vitality below the surface of the 'gin-clear' Bahamian waters filled me with awe. How wonderful to learn that 'diving' doesn't just mean plunging head first into a pool.
Robert sends his regards, and thanks for your compliments; and hopes to have you back diving with us again soon.
Sunny regards from all at Stella Maris - Elizabeth

This is my fishing groups (Annual Fishing Trip AFT) 24th trip to Stella Maris. We started the trip in 1990 with the idea of going a different place every year. We never executed on that idea because it was so perfect and still is today. As I have said before if you want a Sheraton or Marriott this is not the place. If you want to relax slow down and experience what life was like in the island 40 years ago this IS THE PLACE. Long Island the people are just some of the nicest people with a great sense of humor and grace. This is not Atlantis. If it rains there are bug, if the wind blows hard it is rough. The food is amazing (Thank you Bruno) the service is great (thanks to Jill, Joel, and staff). I have been over 30 times and will be back for AFT 25 a quarter century. Thanks to all of Long Island of being such good hosts.

Henry and the AFT 24 group

We have traveled to Long Island several times and each time, we stay at Stella Maris. It is a beautiful resort on a beautiful island. We are always treated like a member of the family by Joel, Jill, Peter, Jorge...and the rest of the Stella Maris staff. I can't imagine visiting any other island in the Bahamas besides Long Island, and I can't imagine staying any place else besides Stella Maris.

This is a terrific facility on the outer eastern edge of the Bahamas. The island surroundings are remote and a bit rugged but the facility has just about anything that you need. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the restaurant was awesome and the staff were some of the most friendly and professional that I have seen anywhere.

We visited in the Summer of 2012 and it was very hot and humid. There was however, great fishing and incredible scenery. This is truly the place to go to get away from it all.

Room Tip: All rooms have a nice and spacious screened porch and face the ocean

We appreciate your compliments to Stella Maris Resort management and staff. We are 'off the beaten path', but the destination is well worth the journey. Summers can be hot, especially if the usual ocean breeze slows, nothing a dip if the ocean or a nearby pool can't remedy. Hope you are planning a return visit this summer, or maybe this fall - October and November are lovely!

The perfect spot for kids and adults. Quiet, lots of history, popular spots, no better service anywhere. The best quiet beaches anywhere. We've been six times and have not desire to go anywhere else. Each time has been special and unique. We've always been treated to make us feel special. Its such a safe place too. We feel like we belong there and have gotten to know the staff and enjoy talking to them and learning some island history. It always makes our trip when Peter is there. He really loves the island and does many projects to build it up and restore some sights. We hope to go back many times and hope it keeps its atmospere.

Room Tip: Try them all. There's a good view all around

Thank you for your compliments, we are so very happy to be your 'Island Home'! Peter does know so very much about Long island, have you had the opportunity to visit the Adderley Plantation ruins with him? There is even some great information available from a archaeologist who has visited several times to 'dig in' to the historical site.
Again, thank you for your review, and we look forward to your next visit.
