I loved Cape St Francis and it was ideal for us as we were travelling as a group of friends and took one of the Beach Front Villas. Great to all have breakfast together in our villa and chill out with a BBQ in the evening. We tried a few things whilst we were there and I would definitely recommend...

Overall, it was good, the location is beautiful. The rooms are comfortable, however quality of the beds could be improved and would be good for them to check for mice and rats, as well as clean the loft section in the back packer rooms.

We arrived pretty late but were still very friendly welcomed. The staff is great. The room was very beautiful in an old colonial style, it was very clean and the room was spacious. We also loved the modern bathroom, central location and the gated parking. Definitely a recommendation.

Always a fantastic and special experience to stay at the Cape St Francis Resort. Fasie Malherbe, Dale and our host Brian were absolutely awesome. The Houses we stayed in (Nautilus) is literally only a few meters from the beach. Five star quality and personal service, including restaurant staff preparing breakfast for us prepared in our own kitchen was simply fantastic....
