We spent an awesome week (January) celebrating our 25th anniversary. We were the only couple (on our plane) that did not go to the big resort and have every activity be large group outings. Margaret Taxi #5 picked us up at the Georgetown airport and had us at the "dingy-dock" in less then 10 minutes ( there is a set...

Staying here was just a perfect vacation ever. The resort was just fantastic and stunning. Great location, it was like in the island where the ocean was so clear and white.

If you want some privacy, serene views, and wonderful hosts - St. Francis is truly the best. My girlfriend and I visited in March 2011 for about a week and we still remember the soft sand and amazing adventures. I couldn't recommend St. Francis enough when we returned and now that the trip has digested with us for several months,...

My wife and I travel a lot, and while I've had many good TripAdvisor recommendations, this is the first time we liked a place enough that we felt compelled to write a review.

8 rooms directly facing the ocean on a deserted beach. We arrived with a double rainbow greeting us as our view over the ocean. Amazing that this is the only development on the beach, at least that I could tell. Never saw more than 2 people walking the beach at a time. The bay (facing Exuma) equally stunning, and much...

We spent 5 nights over the U.S. Thanksgiving week at the St Francis Resort. I had read the reviews here and had a good idea of what to expect. Still - it exceeded my expectations. There are some trips where you may want a luxury resort with extensive facilities and lots of onsite activities. Then there are some trips where...

After spending a week in New York we were looking for a relaxing break in a low key resort - St Francis did not disappoint.

For us this was the perfect place for our honeymoon. There was blue water, blue sky, and the whitest beaches I have ever seen. The staff was friendly and gave the sort of 'mom and pop' hospitality we looked for and expected. I really can't say enough about the natural beauty and seclusion we were able to find. We would...

My husband and I went to St. Francis in 2010 and had such a wonderful time we went back in 2011. St. Francis is perfect for enjoying snorkeling, talking to fascinating people, meeting new friends, very quite with no loud music or bars and sitting out on your own private beaches. Jill, George and Greg are one of a kind....

“We were in a room with a king bed, #2. There are only 8 units at the resort, all ocean front, so you can't go wrong with any room.”
