We stopped by for a swim at their beach (actually a little lagoon) last week while bareboat chartering. But we will be returning for our 4th week-long stay at the end of February. This small resort, 9 cottages, offers spectacular views of Sir Francis Drake Channel, the quiet little beach with comfortable chaises and a few cabanas, a great restaurant,... More

We went over just to check out what Frenchmans cay was all about... Tourists shopping in cute shops, really beautiful marina, bars and restaurants....really sweet if that's what you like..not our style, but pretty if it's yours.

I came to the island by sailboat, where I got everything I needed in a short time, output documents, shopping for boat ride, internet and a cold beer with good food .. Good waypoint.

A beautiful drive along the southern side of the island to Frenchman's Cay. We boarded a sailing boat for our trip to Jost van Dyke at Soper's Hole (Pusser's Wharf) as well as catching the ferry to St John's on another day. An interesting place to visit and walk around. I wouldn't stay there though unless you wish to boat... More

I had the opportunity to visit Frenchman's Cay a number of times, as I was staying on the west end of the island. It's a nice place to spend a few hours, with various shops and restaurants, along with Soper's Hole Marina nearby. Unless you are doing something specific in Frenchman's, there isn't much to see just by wandering about,... More

This is a very attractive restaurant, with nice view during daylight hours, but all you can see at night is the swimming pool. It's kind of a typical expensive restaurant including the necessity of buying a bottle of water. Service is fine. A glass of average wine is $15. We could have been in any big city restaurant(yawn). At any... More

We ate here and really enjoyed the food. The wine list is spectacular! The chef puts a lot of love and detail on the food preparations and presentations. The setting is also quite romantic - nice place for a special evening!

As soon as you arrive at this hidden gem you'll be greeted by the the friendliest staff anywhere. The menu choices were over the top for selection. The food was exquisite. They also have a wonderful wine selection served by staff who know their wines. It was by far the most romantic and delicious meal on the Island

We visited the beach because we heard great things about the villas at this location, and the restaurant here is wonderful. However, unless I made a wrong turn, the beach here was surprisingly bad with rocks all over. It made me appreciate our beach at Fort Recovery more.

this area did not impress me, and there is a terrible stench coming from the marsh outside the area that you had to go through each day.
