Reviewed 21 March 2014

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.

Will definitly recommend the resort to friends and family, even future brides. Thank you, for making my big day as special as possible. All the GUests that attended the wedding and stayed over really enjoyed themselves and their breaths were taken away with the view!

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!

Had a perfect stay for 17 of us at Beach Break Villa and Seagull Song next door and held our wedding in the garden. Danni and Nicole and the team made our day so special - their organisation and calm attitude made us feel so relaxed and our guests felt well looked after. Danni was amazing at finding things for us - table decorations, speakers etc. We had a spit braai and it was delicious! The decor of the houses and grounds was gorgeous as well as the wonderful beach setting and views. We had two delicious meals at Joe's Fish Bar - chef was amazing and came out to greet us, highly recommend the calamari. Brides - if you want "the full monty" - this is the place for you. Grooms, there is a great pub at the resort to shoot some pool and calm your nerves before you say "I Do". The resort also accommodated my family and friends from PE - so "everything under one roof" as such. Its a place where beautiful memories are made.

Room Tip: For a wedding party and venue - Beach Break is a must.

My husband and I recently hosted our wedding at Cape St. Francis Resort. What a brilliant location!! I have to thank Danni and all of the staff for assisting us make our special day even better. They were so helpful and accommodating to us and our guests, along with doing exactly what we asked. Everyone raved about the braai and the reception dinner food. The accommodation options offered something for everyone to stay within the resort which was perfect. The spa, while small, is wonderful (Thanks Nicole!). The only suggestions I can make would be to have better cleaners (and ensure the houses get a thorough cleaning often), provide beach towels and even rental beach chairs, given most people have traveled and cannot carry these items, and take care of the ant problem in all of the cottages. Overall our time there was beautiful, relaxing and a ton of fun. I am thrilled to have such a wonderful memory of my wedding. If you come across "Babes" in the bar/restaurant, give her a hug. She is the best waitress ever!

Just a few things should be repaired in the chalet - Oyster Catcher :
1. The clothing hook behind the door in the bathroom had broken off by the doorstop against the wall.
2. The kettle stand is missing a rubber foot so it wobbles.
3. One of the steps going up to the house is broken and could be dangerous, especially in the dark.
4. There was no back to the TV remote, so batteries kept falling out.

We stayed in the Club Break 2-bedroom unit, which was nice and spacious. Kids enjoyed having TV in their room for the first time :) Appliances and kitchen utensils were ok. The outside (private) braai area was nice and both the open plan lounge/kitchen and kids room had a door leading there. We found, however, that the rooms had a slightly musty smell. There was a fair bit of noise from the wedding happening the one evening, but it had stopped just after midnight. The beach we found to be too far really with the kids and all their paraphernalia - it may be 300m from the resort, but the actual ocean is quite a ways from the point of entry at the back of the resort. The pool was nice - a bit of work could be done to improve the grouting/tiles. And a wash line would be useful (either inside or out) to hang wet bathing costumes and beach towels on. The laundry service is a great value-for-money offering. In terms of price, they are quite expensive for what you're getting.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for a unit/room away from the construction workers (there was building taking place...
