8/10 Very good

The staff were absolutely amazing. Check in was very smooth and their direction to our room was very clear. The property has boom gates with security so it was very safe and inviting. It was also very close to the beach. The room was okay...simply okay. The bathroom shower was massive, but the shower didn't drain, so you are standing in others dirty water. The toilet upstairs in the loft was broken. I don't mean it didn't flush, I mean the flush arm was broken (something cleaning staff should have easily found and fixed). The place is pretty outdated, but for the price isn't bad. The sleeping arrangement was quite strange with 2 double beds down stairs and 2 singles in the loft. Meaning there is absolutely zero privacy for a married couple who are traveling with kids. All in all the place was okay, but hardly a "Resort".

St Francis Resort
Property generally goi and the location excellent. Could be great fir family accommodation. Limited parking space a nightmare, especially when there are guests who come in groups. Restaurant staff friendly and welcoming.

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!
