As with a number of other reviewers we broke a journey from Plettenburg to an Eastern Cape safari park with a one night stay at the Sands.We were greeted with a refreshing drink then shown to our wonderful first floor room with an amazing picture window overlooking the beach and sea and complete with a deck, loungers and a hot tub! We were a little surprised given the prominence on the website of the dining experience that the chef wasn't available that night, but, as we had booked to dine out it wasn't a problem for us. We slept well in a comfortable bed and were treated to the customary fulsome South African breakfast. With hindsight it really would have been nice to have spent a second night.
Finally and as an example of the hospitality and kindness that we experienced throughout our stay in South Africa; I managed to leave a set of keys behind in our room, Heidi the manager contacted us at our next stop and arranged to have the keys sent to her head office near Port Elizabeth airport so that I could collect them prior to our flight home.
We would recommend the Sands to anyone needing a stay in St Francis.More
