Only stayed one night on our way to Addo. Wish we had stayed longer. Our room was wonderful and we had so much space. We loved the outdoor shower and patio area. Breakfast was very good and I loved the pancakes. Couldn't fault a single thing and highly rrecommend this guest house.

We recently spent time at this gem and cannot recommend it highly enough. The place itself is amazing with a great layout, really comfortable rooms boasting plenty of privacy. But the real beauty of Sandals is the staff. They MAKE Sandals the special place it is. If you're staying in St Francis, there is surely no other place to consider... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sandals and we definitely come back. Our room was beautiful (no 5), very friendly staff and a lekker breakfast. We had our own outside terrace with direct access into the garden. The outside shower is amazing.

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. :)
