Here's where we started our trip from Port Elisabeth down to Cape Town. St Francis Bay is a lovely, quiet place with a lot of southafrican charm. The water canal system and inhabited islands make it a unique architectural spot. Sandals Guest House is centrally located in a town close to the ocean, beach, shopping and dining options. In particular...

The guesthouse is 3 minutes walk from the beach at St Francis Bay, a village of white-washed thatched houses situated along canals and residential roads, the like of which we’d never seen. Out of season it’s home to some 3,000 people but in season – December – this number swells to 30,000 and is apparently very noisy! We had room...

What a gem! This hotel is so lovely and Tess and her Team are excellent. The breakfast here (which is included) is second to none. There is a lovely pool area and an honesty bar. Some rooms are better than others but they are ALL good - some with outdoor showers which is lovely! If you are visiting SFB you...

We stayed at this guest house for 2 nights and enjoyed it. The location is great since you can go walking downtown or to the beach. As we were a family of four, we got a duplex room which was confortable. Buffet breakfast offers a good variety of food. The house is nicely decorated and you really feel at home....

Staff very friendly and helpful, made canal and restaurant bookings for us and arranged some local transport - but do agree a price beforehand, we didn't and felt perhaps we were a bit overcharged (price more like a UK taxi than South Africa rates). Food was superb and the honesty bar made it easy for drinks, although limited hot drink...

Friendly staff, good service but a quirky ground floor room with an outside shower and unreliable wiring. Quiet location but no views although only a few minutes walk to a superb beach. For a B&B, overpriced at the equivalent of UK £130 / night.

This is my second stay at Sandals and I cannot praise it enough. Lovely room both times with private seating area and outdoor shower. Staff are always friendly and it's really nice to see the same faces a year apart. The garden around the pool is well kept, peaceful and tranquil. The breakfast was lovely and the staff really attentive....
