Upon arrival we were greeted by the friendly staff and showed to our room. The room was fresh and tidy with ample space for all our international baggage that we brought with us. The wide variety for breakfast will not leave you hungry and once again the friendly staff was there to assist. A gem worth the visit...

What a peaceful and relaxing getaway! Gorgeous rooms and amazing breakfasts! I would highly recommend the Caribbean Pancakes, though all their breakfast options are great. A wonderful place to unwind and relax. The staff are friendly and helpful and you really are made to feel welcome. :)

This is an exquisite B&B in a great location. Beach and restaurants are within walking distance and there are lots of nice walking trails in the area. The B&B is smartly designed with open spaces for lounging and relaxing and there is also a beautiful garden and a swimming pool. Rooms are tastefully decorated with attention given to every detail,... More

Location; two minutes walk from the beach (but no-one seems to use it) and 4 minutes walk from Christy's restaurant. It's just off the main road but there really isn't any traffic so it's really quiet. It's quirky; we had a room in the grounds - bright with a covered deck outside for our sole use. Outside shower, thatched building... More

A charming guest house with friendly staff and a welcoming but relaxed atmosphere; it is close to the beach, shops and a number of good restaurants. Highly recommended. Our only disappointment was the weather, which could have been kinder, but no-ne can control that!

St Francs Bay is a fabulous village in a stunning location but when we were shown to our room we were very disappointed. The building is large and I think the important thing must be to specify a garden or upstairs room. The weather was damp and clammy so our downstairs room was difficult to ventilate and has a musty... More
