Priced as a 5 star hotel but absolutly not worth it. Room without aircon but a fan that is not working. parking on the street. No personel in reception at night. You can find better deals in St francis. Make a better choice and save money.

Jarner on the same day as your review we get this below from a very happy client! And so many more ... We are well priced in the 4 star guesthouse range and certainly not the most expensive in St Francis or elsewhere. We DO NOT advertise aircon at all so please check your details before booking if this is...

Delightful looking building with thatched roof. We were in main building over looking the pool from our balcony. Friendly greeting and we were soon walking along the local beach at the bottom of the road, fresh air sea and sand what more could you want. Delightful thatched houses abound. We had already lunch at St Francis Golf Club on way...

We only stayed one night here but could easily have we'd stayed longer. The building has a thatched roof giving it a quaint feel. The rooms are clean & individual in nature with a private balcony. The staff are lovely, the breakfast was great & there's a very nice pool. It's very close to a wonderful beach & within east...

Stopped here for one night. Unfortunately, it was raining when we arrived, so we didn't see it at its best. The staff were very welcoming and showed us places of interest. The room we had was at the front of the hotel, with a separate seating area behind a glass door and an outside shower. It was very easy to...

Hopefully you can be back and stay longer in full sunshine. What a pity! We are blessed with a lovely village and surrounds! St Francis has so much to offer the holiday maker. Thanks for the lovely compliments.

We stayed for 3 nights at Sandals, comfortable room with a private enclosed terrace area overlooking the pool and well maintained garden. The shower was outside which was a bit quirky. The staff were very friendly and helpful, excellent breakfast. Very good location for the beautiful beaches, canals and a safe short walk to the restaurants. The down sides were...

Thanks for the good review of staff, breakfast, garden & room. However, I am sorry if there was some breakfast setup noise and other guests? We will address that and the noisy fan. Thanks for bringing to our attention. They have a shelf life in heat of summer. Fridges are also very noisy in rooms... and we really do not...

We stayed one night at Sandals and the room we had was lovely. Right outside the door which had a sliding glass door about 12 feet across looked out onto the garden and pool. The room was huge and very well appointed. The only down side was there was no evening dining which meant we had to go out again...

Thanks for the time taken with just a one night stop to review your stay-over. Appreciate it. Happy to hear you enjoyed the spacious room and our garden and pool, and especially the bird songs from the garden! It is a peaceful haven teaming with bird life, the occasional mongoose and vervet monkeys too! We do not advertise bar fridges...

Definitely catering to the discerning international traveller this B&S is very conveniently located. Excellent freshly cooked breakfasts in addition to a healthy buffet. Rooms are clean and well equipped (for a seaside B&B). The owners are friendly, well travelled and take great pride in their little bit of ocean island feel on the South African coast. Easy walk to the...

We spent 2 nights at Sandals and were taken with the quirky nature of the rooms - plenty of room with balcony/terrace and outside enclosed showers.

Wonderful review and we do appreciate the feedback. Dec/Jan always a very busy time and we want our guests to appreciate and enjoy the various local dining establishments so we do make provisional bookings for all our guests long before the "rush". To "chill" by the pool in the late afternoons in the privacy of the peaceful garden, glass wine...
