                                  We spent 3 lovely days at Sandals Guesthouse. The gardensuite was superb and the owners and the staff so kind. Lovely breakfast too!

                                  We had the most wonderful time staying at Sandals. Their hospitality is Top Class and everybody so friendly and helpful. I will definitely go back in the future.

                                  Nicely located just 100m from the shore. It is also very quiet; the room has a typical St. Francis bay roof construction which is nice, with a comfortable bed. Helpful staff.

                                  We had a lovely relaxing stay at Sandals and would recommend it to our friends. Everyone is very friendly and willing to please.

                                  The Sandals gives you every minute the feeling of being at home, to be welcome. You are not a guest but more a family member. People are extremely friendly and rooms as well as all the settings are very cosy. Whatever problem you may have you get the impression they will help you out. It is not a host-guest relation; moreover it is a family-experience. To be that close to astonishing beaches and to the nicest town of South Africa (at least as far as we have seen) is an additional plus!
