This was a nice experience. Nice room that had kitchen, huge bathroom with amenities and nice area to stay at. There were two restaurants around, one at the lodge area and the other one across the street. We chose the lodge restaurant. Ok food, not more nor less. Nice walk to the ocean, not good to swim there because of...

Very spacious and clean accommodation with exceptional staff. There is so much to do from walks on the beach to lovely boat cruises in St Francis. We also had a night at Joe Fish restaurant and will highly recommend them to anyone.

Great location on a great beach in small village town that offers it all. Family or romantic getaway it has it. Everything slows down and the facilities are great and more importantly in one place. Get the right position and spot though, Beach side for example, not in the middle.

We would highly recommend staying at Cape St Francis Resort. Accommodation is clean and very comfortable. Amenities at the resort are great and it's a walk away from the beach. Extremely good value for money.

To wake up to that view is just Priceless. Venue, Restaurant, nothing can beat it. We have spent over 2 weeks there and have booked our next trip already. Just so easy walk to beach and the kids play in dunes for days. Then you have the restaurant and small shop providing for all your needs every day. This time...

We really had a lovely time at this resort. Everything was in close approximate of the resort. We loved the cleaning services and getting fresh coffee & tea sachets every morning. Next time we would love to get a unit closer to the beach.
