My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the St Francis Resort for a portion (6 nights) of our Honeymoon in mid-June 2011 and had a FANTASTIC time! After doing weeks of careful research on TripAdvisor, we selected St Francis to be the more "laid back" portion of our Honeymoon and we absolutely made the right decision!! Prior... More

We arrived at St Francis Resort on May 21st……….(the day the world was supposed to end). Once getting settled in and seeing how beautiful Stocking Island and the resort was……we were happy to spend the last day on earth at St. Francis! But luckily 6:00pm came and went and we got to enjoy a whole week of the place! The... More

We stayed at the St Francis mid June of this year. We lucked out on the weather, as June is considered storm season. There was a storm the night before we arrived so it cooled down the weather, plus it rained that night we arrived. The weather stayed an average of 90 degrees throughout our week stay and the humidity... More

I would like to start off by saying I am very torn between writing a review to let everyone in the world know that they MUST vacation at the St.. Francis Resort and not leaving a review at all, because I want to keep the resort a secret and all to myself. I have decided to write a review, because... More

I recommend St. Francis wholeheartedly! It was an absolutely wonderful experience. Katie and I went for a full week, the last week of April-first week of May. Perfect weather, even though weather.com said 30% chance of thunderstorms every day. It was perfect. This vacation consisted of laying on the beach every day for hours and hours, gazing out at comlpetely... More

What a great place. Very simple rooms with no TV and very clean. A lot of ownership pride shows in the rooms, premises and food. Bring some games for after dinner if traveling with children or teens. We did a boat trip, rented a boat for a few days, went snorkeling, shelling and hiking. Everyone had a great time and... More

We spent a wonderful week at St francis and like every moment of it. This is the place to go if you would like to relax in the sun. There is a beautiful beach and a lot of possibilities of walking in the bush or at the sand beach. It is well worth the money. The food is good and... More

Thank you to all who’ve posted, as we now “pay it forward.” We know that we’re giving up some of our vacation secrets, but you’ve shared with us, so it’s all good. Our experience with St Francis was every bit as nice as we’d expected, based on reviews we’d read here. We’d enjoyed luxury all-inclusives with waiters on the beach... More

I'm one of those people torn between wanting to rave about the St. Francis, and wishing it stayed a secret. First off, good thing you see written here is true, but there's more. The Island itself is wonderful and you can go for hours and only see a few people. We loved the St. Francis and can't say enough good... More

If you are wondering whether to choose the St. Francis...quite worrying and just GO! Go if you love the clearest water and softest sand you will ever see. Go if you want to relax on fabulous beaches all by yourself. Go to a place that makes you feel welcome and part of the local "family". Go if you have a... More
