            Loved every minute of it, Heidi and the staff were fantastic they were professional but also welcoming. The view and the sound of the ocean from our room was out of this world! I would definitely recommend The Sands to anyone and I will definitely be back for another visit 😊

            Lovely view ”

            The Sands was by far the nicest guest house to stay in St Francis, the view and proximity to the sea fantastic. The staff were very friendly, and room very nice, But for the price paid, I expected a lot more. I arrived around lunch time, and wanted to order lunch, but was told that the chef was off for lunch and could only help later. When I did get offered something, there was no menu, just the suggestion of a toasted sandwich Or a chick salad. For a 5 star guest house I would've expected a better selection. Breakfast was very disappointing- the sausages and bacon seemed boiled. There are stairs to the beach- which are broken so require using a side path, which isn't well made. I'd also called and asked for help to move a deck chair into the sun (as little space to navigate around the pool) but no one came to assist. Overall it's a nice place, stunning location and view, but very overpriced and could do with abit of an upgrade.

            The location and the staff

            We loved our stay at The Sands, the room was fabulous with stunning views and the staff really went the extra mile. Our only concern was that the steps to the beach were damaged to the only way down was a dangerous scramble over the rocks. They need to fix these.
