My wife and I spent 10 wonderful days at the St. Francis for our tenth anniversary. After a busy year, we were looking for a place to relax and unwind. As frequent travellers to the Caribbean and the Bahamas, we wanted a small, quiet resort on a beautiful beach, with access to a good beach bar, and a boat to... More

Having been an avid user of Trip Advisor for years, I have always read other peoples reviews but I have never written a review of my own, but after our trip to the St. Francis Resort I felt compiled to write my first one. First off the owners of the St. Francis Resort are wonderful. Gill and George made our... More

Having survived another four days on the water photographing the 2016 Nat'l Family Island Regatta held in George Town, decided that after four years of attending and not getting over to Stocking Island, it was time to do so. Accommodations are few on Stocking Island. St. Francis was an easy choice - directly on the beach and great reviews of... More

Probably the best lunch on Exuma. Great menu and excellent customer service. Get a water taxi and pay Gill and George a visit you will be made welcome and definitely leave well fed. The whole place is pristine and charming. Before or after lunch take a stroll along the Atlantic beach. Spectacular. Debbie and Dennis

My husband and I stayed at St Francis for 8 nights and could not have picked a better place and the people could not have been friendlier.

This is the only resort on the island. So if you are looking for somewhere laid back and quiet with beautiful scenery and the friendly personal touch of getting to know the owners and other guests, this is the place for you. The place is comfortable, nice and so inviting. The views are just incredible with great hikes throughout the... More

The folks of St. Francis are helpful and friendly. The resort is more isolated than other in that you need to take a boat to get to it. The island is fun and easy to explore, but don't forget to take plenty of water especially if you plan to go to the tower. My wife and I will definitely be... More
