This is my second stay at Sandals and I cannot praise it enough. Lovely room both times with private seating area and outdoor shower. Staff are always friendly and it's really nice to see the same faces a year apart. The garden around the pool is well kept, peaceful and tranquil. The breakfast was lovely and the staff really attentive....

This is a lovely guest house to stay in - delightful staff and nothing is too much trouble- best breakfast ever and arranged a lovely boat trip around the canals - thoroughly recommend. It would be difficult to find anywhere better whether single or as a family

Very comfortable room but best was the attitude of all staff. They went out of their way to fit us in to a nice room and help us with every thing that we needed. A delightful stay, as always. Thank you

A very polite man was working in the reception but the guesthouse was expensive as the 5 star hotel we visit last week. Our room at Sandals was without aircon or working fan. Sorry, you can have the same standard i St Francis for much more resonable price.

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.
