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

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

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.
