The Auberge St Francois is at the image of Rodrigues: simple, authentic, calm and relaxing. The friendly and smiley team takes pride in everything they do and you feel valued and looked after at every level . The suite I stayed in was very big, spotless, quiet with all equipment I needed and such great value ! I would however... More

The staff are amazingly friendly, the food is deliciously local and the rooms are perfectly clean. The peace and quiet was unbelievable. Having the beach across the road is the icing on the cake. Would recommend this to any one looking for a relaxing holiday.

If, like us, you want to experience the opposite of an impersonal stay in a generic hotel...then St François is the place for you! Please don't get me wrong, the auberge is impeccably kept, the rooms pristine, every comfort provided. But in addition to all the basics, St François possesses that rarest of qualities in a hotel : authenticity. The... More

Very few places anyplace in the world offer the miles of white sand beaches that Rodrigues offers where you are more likely to see cows and goats rather than people. The south coast, including Plage Saint Francois, have the prettiest beaches. The horizon is an incredible array of blues and greens from turquoise to blue and lavender. I spent New... More

Auberge St Francois is a lovely and relaxed place to stay, perfect location to just take off for a day hiking or diving nearby and the beach across the road was always deserted when I was there. The highlight for me was the lovely ladies who worked there, who not only provided such professional and friendly service and amazing food... More

The truly best part about the place was its location: just across from a lovely pristine beach. Aside from the odd cow grazing, you feel like you are completely on your own. As for the accomodation, there was definately room for improvement. When we arrived, it was evening time and very hot. We were given the room key then the... More

It was a nice place with peaceful environment to relax. Was an overall good experience. However, there is still room for improvement such as being able to access the common tv room at any time and getting free wifi.

This guest house is right opposite a very remote and deserted beach on Rodrigues island and is a great spot to unwind. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The GH provides free filtered water for guests. Breakfast was good but the coffee wasn't (very hard to find good coffee on Rodrigues). WiFi wasn't free - you paid per day.... More

As an outdoor person who enjoys peace and quiet and solitude I really loved staying at Auberge St Francois. The decor was simple but elegant, with everything that we needed for a relaxing few days at the coast. The staff were kind and happy and provided whatever we asked for, even though our French was somewhat lacking.

Myself and my girlfriend booked in here for four nights recently and had a fantastic stay. St Francois beach is right on the doorstep and it is also just 20 mins walk from Trou d'argent beach which in my opinion is the most beautiful secluded beach on the island. Staff were very friendly and courteous and quite helpful when it... More
