This hotel certainly needs renovations, so many things are broken, and simply not convenient, or comfortable for a beautiful vacation! Internet is always in and out! Our bungalow’s plumbing system was so bad, barely can flush! And water flow is so so slow! When you turn on the cold water, super hot water comes out! It’s literally impossible to shower! The breakfast is free, it’s pretty good! However dinner and lunch is extremely expensive!! And you have no option so you have to spend an astronomical cost for a plain, tiny little plate of green salad ($15)!😮‍💨 The cheapest option is the plate of grilled veggies for $20! 😖 and there is literally nothing around, you are in the middle of an island, so you have to pay! The staff are unbelievably nice! So that’s why I’m giving a star! The hotel is at a beautiful location, right between the bay and the ocean. However, (not like the pictures) there is no way you can swim right out front of the hotel (the bay side), because it’s not swimmable, there are bunch of boats, and seaweed all over, not like beautiful turquoise water… and on the back (the ocean side) it’s beautiful, but it’s not a calm ocean, wavy, and choppy. That being said, they need to hire more captains to take the guests to close by beaches “for free” because they can’t accommodate to have guest swim out front of the bay of their hotel!

St. Francis is a special place. My kids, husband and I have all said this is our favorite place to stay. The island is beautiful and the stretches of beach on the ocean side are virtually untouched. Quick water taxi rides or by your own boat to get to all of the good spots on Great Exume. Staff just was the best. Super friendly and hospitable. Food was delicious. Went for Fourth of July and chef cooked up big American barbecue Buffet island style. Food was delicious at every meal. Kids and hubby and I want to make this resort annual tradition to come bk to. Keep doing what you are doing snd thx for a great stay!!
