“Cape st francis”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Very quite place with beautiful beaches. Teenagers could be bored, as very remote. Good value for money. Relaxing holiday. Good selection of TV channels, although only 1 TV in a 3bed unit, could have had one in the bedroom. Unit could have had a washing machine. The boat trip at st francis was great.

The cottage was neat and clean and very well planned. It was surprisingly quiet inside compared with outside.There was not a noise problem at the resort during our stay but the normal sounds from other braai's could be heard outside but certainly not inside.

We had a fantastic time at the resort. The swimming pool right next to the restaurant was a huge success with the kids! My 8 year old had a fabulous time surfing the waves in the Bay.
The resort and beach lends itself to a great family holiday.
Thanks so much for a lovely stay!

Our wedding arrangements and accommodation were all handled very professionally and efficiently by the staff at the resort, leaving us with nothing to do but enjoy the wedding and the reception. P.S. The food served at Joe Fish was amazing!

The people starting from the reception were so welcoming, restaurant staff Abegail! Jullie, Sarafina and others whhhauuuuu!!!! Guys, my stay at St Francis was wonderful l got the rest l was longing for. The tranquility soothed me.
My room at Beach Break sea facing was the best room ever l still have pictures of the sea taken in the misty morning taken through the window. Whenever l look at the pictures l just begin to long for my room even more.
Maggie, Akim and Benji , guys, once l think about you l just pause and take a big breath, you were my family, you are such a warm team even to those like me (lonely). My stay was great, l feel so refreshed indeed after that stay of 5days there with you. I miss your breakfast everyday.
I also met friends from Germany Dorothy and her sister. The beaches in St Francis are really out of this world and each and every corner is just safe you feel safe at all times.

I miss my big and spacious bedroom it was so cool. Thank you to everyone l met at St Francis Resort, guys you all important to me.

OK but not "luxury". Hotel style room with breakfast (62A) all facilities in room were adequate. However, whole unit smelt musty, possible previous people had pets or smoked, could not put my finger on it. For a new up market resort style area these units are very tired already. Accomodation areas and surrounds are quite poorly lit (little street lighting), only one restaurant and one pub, much more in the main village, but quite a drive.

Bathroom was dirty and not well cleaned (hair on floor) and cupboard was very cheap materials with lack of finishing around edges.

At 1118R inc breakfast I suppose not too bad, but not four or five stars!
