Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Awesome spot for a family - kid friendly! Spacious interiors, clean environment. All crockery and utensils available . I guess my only recommendation is to replace the toilet unit which seems to be decades old, seat loose and rust build up on the base, and in the kitchenette perhaps a extra work top counter for meal prep. Found room 36 not to have any space to work on . But overall I will recommend the resort for family or couple stay overs. Resturant’s delightful, chilled and relaxing environment!

Convenient and clean St Francis stay
The overall experience was fairly good and satisfying. It is close to the swimming pool and not to far walking to the beach although it is not advised to be swimming at the beach in front of the complex which meant thar we had to drive to the swimming beach which is really worth the effort. The unit was very clean. It does however lack some cooling in terms of a fan or airconditioning. The kitchen is very small. The communial braai facilities cause a bit of noise when fellow visitors makes use of it as a get to gether place in the evenings. Even though the above, the overall stay was delightful and very clean.
