The Sands is a beautiful property located directly on the beach where you be wanting for nothing! Anything you need has been carefully thought of and at your disposal. Our room was immaculate and beautifully appointed. It was wonderful to listen to the ocean while falling off to sleep at night! Delicious meals are available in the dining room with ocean front views that are spectacular. We never felt the need to out at night with such great service under our roof! During breakfast we could watch the surfers.
The beach is directly in front you but direct access was not possible when we were there. This was no problem as the public beach access is a mere 100 meters away down the street.
St Francis is an interesting upscale resort area, truly an enclave in and of itself, with several shops and a couple of restaurants/bars.
