Picture this, comfortable, beautifully decorated room. Luxury bathroom... patio doors open onto an infinity pool... then onto stairs that lead direct to the beach... bliss!
Though there wasn’t much to do in St Francis, we really had a day of ”holiday”. The Sands was the most stunning place I have ever stayed, Charmaine the manager set a great balance between the 5 star treatment, without the pretentiousness or making you feel uncomfortable. We had an amazing meal and some drinks later at the bar there, chatting with Charmaine. Something we wouldn’t normally do.
The Sands had – comfort and practicality… it had a warmth! It also had those lovely little touches – dressing gowns and slippers before bedtime and hot chocolate brought to your room… loved it!!!
They also provide canoes, bikes etc.
The Sands ticked every box…The price may seem higher than other places... but treat yourself! You'd pay nearly as much for a holiday Inn / Novotel in London!!!
St Francis was gorgeous – I doubt we have ever been so jealous, than of the rich South Africans who holiday in Plettenberg and St Francis.
