The folks of St. Francis are helpful and friendly. The resort is more isolated than other in that you need to take a boat to get to it. The island is fun and easy to explore, but don't forget to take plenty of water especially if you plan to go to the tower. My wife and I will definitely be... More

My husband and I have gone to St. Francis 3 times. The first time was for our honeymoon. After our first trip, we decided we would try to make it back as close to every year as possible. Each year we have rented a boat from Minn's, which I highly recommend for at least a portion of your stay. You... More

St Frances resort offers the rarest of seclusion on a Incredible beach with views of a life time. I have visited Great Exuma and Stocking Island 8 times and the St Francis even when I didn't stay there was always a must visit. The owners and staff are incredibly nice the food and drinks were always really good to great... More

I did a lot of research to find the best place to stay for my honeymoon, and I think I truly found it in St. Francis!! My husband and I arrived August 4th, a day later than we were supposed to because our American Eagle flight from Miami to Georgetown was delayed 4 times, then cancelled. American Eagle made arrangements... More

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
