A first class place to stay in the St Francis Bay area - good for golf and beaches. If possible get the " new" garden room as it is memorable. Staff always happy to give advice on eating out and guidance for the area.

Where to start.... this was our last stop of our honeymoon and if it was the first we would have probably stayed for another 2 nights. From being Welcomed by the owners to the day we checked out was just amazing. Being in the hospitality industry myself I could not fault anything. Our room was spacious, clean and well equipped....

What can I say, we had an amazing stay, all the staff are amazing and friendly, the breakfasts are to die for and the local knowledge is second to none. We will be back again next year and I have booked for my parents to visit in November of this year.

Had we not had pre-paid prior to our stay we would have driven on and not bothered. We were welcomed by the owner upon arrival but had to wait to check in as other guests had arrived at the same time, which wasn't a problem. However as more guests arrived we felt were rushed through the check-in procedure and weren't...

We stayed at Sandals Guest House for 2 nights over New Years. During our stay in SA we stayed at about 5 different places and this felt by far the most luxurious. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, the rooms were perfectly clean and we especially enjoyed the outdoors shower although I think that could be a little cold...

Thanks for your lovely review and time taken. My staff are deserving of so much praise. We certainly hope you do COME BACK to our lovely village and Sandals GH. The outdoor shower options are wonderful...but yes, winter showering outdoors could be more challenging! Wish we could have summer all year round!
