My husband and I stayed at French Leave for 11 days this past February. It was my first vacation in YEARS and had a lot of expectations to live up to - and French Leave lived up to every one of them. Our bungalow was perfect, beautifully designed for serenity, and waking up to that view every morning... wow. The property is beautiful, and it felt so private (it is built for Social Distancing because you have your own bungalow and there is never a reason to be inside when you aren't sleeping). As amazing as all the beaches are on Eleuthera - and they are mind boggling beautiful and always PRIVATE, you won't find a beach anywhere more wonderful than French Leave Beach - a mile of pink sand - never more than 30 people on the whole beach, and short 5 minute golf cart ride right from the property. We tended to end our days of beach exploring hanging off the side of the pool, watching the sunset over the ocean and the pelican's fly by - what could be better? And the entire staff, especially Karell, were wonderful. In the midst of such a difficult time we were so grateful and lucky to find such a perfect place on such an astonishingly beautiful and peaceful island, to escape. I can't wait to go back.

My wife and I arrived yesterday to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and her birthday (I’m not allowed to say how many years 😍). Upon our arrival we were greeted by the most exceptional resort and an equally exceptional staff. I look forward to leaving a more detailed review upon our departure. We have had the good fortune of traveling extensively throughout the globe and have experienced many extraordinary destinations- Thus far, the French Leave Resort is a solid 10 out of 10.

My husband and I absolutely loved our week long stay at French Leave. We rented an oceanfront villa which allowed us to wake up to beautiful views of the Caribbean and nightly sunsets from our balcony. The villa was extremely comfortable and very tastefully decorated. We enjoyed the espresso coffee throughout the day and it was fun to have a golf cart, equipped with a cooler, to head over to stunning French Leave Beach (a four minute ride from our Villa). We also enjoyed the stunning infinity pool and hot tub, both in full view of the gorgeous Caribbean. Lots of privacy at the pool and on the beach every day. We also took advantage of snorkeling (so-so) and kayaking (wonderful) on the Caribbean side. The Restaurant, 1648, was excellent. We enjoyed breakfast there one morning and had two of our best dinners at 1648 during our stay. I highly recommend the French Leave Resort to anyone who is interested in having a very relaxing, peaceful vacation in STUNNING surroundings. Shout out to ALL the employees.... they are friendly, helpful are really there to help guests enjoy every minute at the resort.

The French Leave Resort is a hidden gem. The property is immaculately kept and offers spectacular, untouched, natural beauty. The Villa’s are clean, well laid-out, and offer plenty of amenities. We preferred the Full Ocean View Villa for the most amazing sights and awesome sunsets. Each Villa comes with its own golf-cart, and access to kayaking, snorkeling, and surfboarding equipment whenever you like. There is a large pool on the property as well as a very good restaurant (1648) open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The French Leave beach is a quick golf-cart ride from the Villas. The beach itself is quite large and very secluded with pink soft sand and clear aqua blue waters. Aside from the natural beauty and seclusion at French Leave, another notable and commendable feature is the professional service. The service here is way above par. They go out of their way to make your stay a memorable one. Room service and other requests were handled quickly, if not immediately, and efficiently. Chuck, the General Manager, is an excellent host who makes you feel right at home at his wonderful resort. Chuck is totally in tune with his customers and it shows. Jusaid and Donnoy seemed like they were always there to assist with whatever request we had. Koral was excellent at recommending and booking dinners, coordinating transportation, and handling the check-out process. All amazing people who made our stay as close to perfect as you could possibly get.
