Having read all the reviews on Trip Advisor, we were really looking forward to our stay at Sandals but we were very disappointed. Firstly the welcome was non existent. The owners were not to be seen and there was a young caretaker who let us in. I understand the 'rustic' look but this was just old and in need of a serious upgrade. There was nobody on site after 6pm and we were very unsure of the security. I found it impossible to lock the sliding glass door which is the only way in. The breakfast was most disappointing and the whole experience is a million miles from Lairds Lodge where we stayed the night before however it has the same star rating and is amazingly enough slightly cheaper than Sandals.
On the plus side, St Francis bay is lovely and the beach excellent, however if this is really number one in the bay, what must the others be like?
