This beautiful beach resort is situated on the tranquil Long Island in the Bahamas. Families will love being only steps away from the white sands and ocean but then have the convenience of the outdoor pool as well. The kids can swim while the adults relax in surrounding lounge chairs or in a hammock. One- to four-bedroom accommodations are available, so larger families are very welcome here. The villas feature large living and dining areas and a fully equipped kitchen and a grill outside. There is an outdoor dining patio too. Meal plans are an available option as well at the onsite restaurant and may be more convenient for families who don’t want to have to worry about cooking.

Love coming to the bar every time on Long Island. Really old school class hotel that blends into its tropical environment and set metres from outstanding Atlantic scenery.
Love sitting at the bar with friends eating the club sandwich and wondering at all the different rums on display.
I read the review complaining about sand flies - but if there is rain and no wind they will be everywhere in the north of the island and you need to wear proper clothing - as bone fisherman we have all that gear and only cover the face - I find 'skin so soft' works the best.
John and I are avid divers and were beyond excited to visit Long Island Bahamas to dive Dean’s Blue Hole. After researching our options we chose to stay at Stella Maris. Stella Maris exceed our expectations. Upon our entrance we were greeted by the friendly staff with a cold water and freshly made cocktail. We were then escorted to our villa Carolyn’s favorite, a three bed two bath open concept beautiful house with amazing ocean views. The Villa was well that impeccably clean, nicely decorated and very spacious. The staff was friendly and very attentive. Jill, Yvonne and the entire staff were extremely friendly, informative and helpful. Jill was very responsive via email with any questions we had prior to and during our stay.
We enjoy cooking and were able to cook the majority of our meals in the fully stocked kitchen. The kitchen staff was very accommodating when we needed small things such as spices and even vegetables. The house had AC but we never had to use it due to the wonderful breeze blowing through. We are going to miss waking up to this amazing view and peaceful sounds of waves crashing.
We would highly recommend Stella Maris Resort for your visit to Long Island.
