Lovely small hotel with lovely rooms, great food and excellent helpful staff. Recommend a few nights in this relaxing hotel as their is not a great deal to do in the surrounding area. Great beach with nice walks.

Room Tip: Room on ground floor. patio doors opening up beside the small pool.

We stayed for one night and were really glad we did, a beautiful luxurious and peaceful place right on the beach. The receptionist was really friendly and helpful and directed us to a nice local place for a drink and some food in the evening which was a short walk from the hotel and safe to get to. Couldn't fault the room, great size and facilities. There didn't seem to be a lot to do in the area so we were happy to just be staying the one night. Perfect for a luxurious stop off.

A fantastic, friendly boutique hotel right on the beach. Beautiful rooms and great food and service. Go to sleep listening to the sound of the ocean . A real highlight of our trip.St Francis Bay is very charming with its waterways resembling Venice.

A very relaxing 3 days .. a beautiful room .. excellent breakfast and dinner. Right on a lovely beach . The pool was lovely and outside space comfortable.
The staff were helpful.. the only little thing was we asked for decaf coffee they didn't have any but went out especially to get some. But then said my husband couldn't have more coffee as we had this extra which seemed a little odd!!

Ncie personal touches. Sadly the wooden steps to the beach were out of action . Not sure I would go to this area again as it was lots of big houses by canas.
But the Sands was a lovely place to relax and be pampered.

Room Tip: upstairs... brill view!

We stayed at this B & B for 3 nights as part of our stay in South Africa. We had flown into Capetown and then gone down the garden route. This was our last stay before our safari. The room had a great view overlooking the beach, however it was dark and the furniture didn't help as this was very dark wood. The breakfasts were good, most cooked to order, however, items such as lattes etc were chargeable. We had one evening meal at the Sands, the main course was good, however the dessert was lacking. We spent three days here and in hindsight this was too long as there was little to do in the surrounding areas. It was useful to us as it made our next stop, at the Shamwari easy to get to.

Stayed: March 2017
