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

We had read the many shining reviews and were eager to see if it was for real. The owners/operators Jillian and George and their son Greg made us literally feel like family and helped us with anything we needed. We flew into Nassau and had a 4 hour layover waiting for Bahama Air connection. Ticket agents directed us to a... More

I could not imagine staying anywhere else in Exuma. We spent a week at St. Francis and truly enjoyed ourselves, the staff was amazing! If you are looking for the perfect place to get away to relax from it all this is your place. Once arriving in Georgetown we took a taxi ride to the harbour where we were met... More

We had lunch . Beautiful patio. Great view of George Town. Service was excellent . We enjoyed a hamburger and fries. well priced and yummy! Wifi was 2.00 . Should have been free as long as you had lunch. Like the place as it's very relaxing. Will return.

My wife and I stayed in mid January for 4 nights. Gosh the temperature during this time of year are so awesome. I am use to spending summers in the Abacos, where it is so hot and humid. I was surprised how warm the water still was. Did some snorkeling out on the Atlantic side, out about 150 yards, good... More

I just returned from my second stay at the St Francis, and it was every bit as good as the first. My son and I were there for 4 nights, and George, Jill, Gregg, and Sandy, in the restaurant were outstanding hosts. All are prompt with responses, very eager to help, happy to give rides across the harbor on their... More

My wife and I stayed here early July for our 25th Anniversary. From the moment we met Jillian at the docks at Exuma Markets until the time we left, we felt like we were among old friends. Jillian, George and the entire staff made us feel very welcome. The beach is beautiful on the Atlantic side and we saw 2... More

My husband and I spent four nights at St Francis Resort on Stocking Island off Great Exuma. It turned out to be the perfect spot for us. If you want your own swimmable and nearly private beach (we saw 6 other people in four days on that beach) that goes on for about 5 miles, then this place is for... More
