Stayed here from July 10 through the 15th. What can I say? This place is spectacular not only in it's view and surroundings, but in the owners and staff. Felt like I was visiting with old friends. I have been to Nassau and Freeport, and did not enjoy as much. If you are looking to unwind, unplug ( well sort... More

Lovely relaxing break, staff great, room beautiful. Loved Kayaking and the deserted beaches. Food and drink good, no complaints at all. The owners are wonderful hosts and the service is excellent, hope to return one day.

Hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, relaxing for me: fishing, fishing, and more fishing for my husband! This is not your museum/art gallery/gothic cathedral vacation place. Be ready to relax and pursue activities on your own schedule. Restaurant food was outstanding. The hot breakfast entree was different each morning. Loved the Tue. and Thurs. poker games. Most definitely rent a boat. We brought... More

My husband and I stayed at St Francis Resort May 8 to May 13. We had and excellent time. The location is spectacular. Many places to walk around, the beach was beautiful and nobody else there. Consequently it was beautiful and clean. We felt so relaxed that we didn't even want to leave. Now we are planning another visit. The... More

St. Francis is ideally located in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Gillian and her son, Greg, were very warm hosts and really bent over backwards to make sure that we had everything we needed for during our stay. All of the staff were very nice and helpful, and we enjoyed quite a few delicious meals overlooking the... More

If you're looking for a big, generic, all-inclusive resort, this isn't the place for you. If you truly want to get away to a beautiful island with simple, lovely rooms and friendly, charming hosts, you can't do better than this. My 17-year-old daughter and I came for her spring break the first week of April. We arrived late, and Gillian... More

This place is basically heaven on earth. You just cant describe how beautiful it really it. Endless white sand beaches and amazing landscape are backdrop to water so clear you think its a swimming pool. This is coming from a couple who lives in Sarasota, FL home to the #1 rated beach Siesta Key. Let me tell you, this place... More

We were at the resort in Mid March for three days. We traveled to Exuma by way of Silver Airlines from Fort Lauderdale. Once we were on our way to the island, the taxi driver phoned St Francis to have them send the boat over. There is a grocery store at the harbour and we quickly picked up bottles of... More

The other reviewers tell the story. The managers, Gill and George, with the ladies Sandy and Kiska, who wait tables and tend the bar, made our week long stay a very memorable event. The rooms are quite large, very clean and well equipped with microwave, fridge and hot water maker. The Atlantic is the view from the room deck and... More

We spent a week here and had a wonderful time. When we landed in George Town the taxi driver to the waterfront called the resort and they immediately sent someone over by boat to pick us up. Once docked at the resort we were greeted by the owner Jill and were shown to our room. There isn't really a check... More
