Thank you for a most wonderful stay. We fell in love with your place and look forward to many more visits.

Hi Guys Liz and I had such a great weekend from when we arrived at Friday lunchtime that I had to write and thank you.The room had all the facilities we look for (very few rooms usually do) and was spacious and close to the central amenities.The staff were outstanding. From reception to waitrons and the bar staff all were competent, friendly and helpful.The weekend special which included the seafood platter was a very good deal and the platter absolutely fantastic. The other meals we ate in the restaurant were all of a high standard and well priced (especially the Friday hake special). Considering the large wedding group to be catered for the food quality and service were first class.You even gave us 2 days of good weather!
10th August 2012
Thanks a million for all the arrangements regarding our stay on 6 & 7 August. The service was superb and so was the food!! Everyone was well fed and a special thanks to the chef and the staff. Warm regards. Ria
8th August 2012
Good Morning Chelsea (and the team over the weekend).Thank you very much for a great weekend! Ashliegh, Rachael and I had a lovely evening on Friday, and time to finish off all the admin! The ladies were very happy (an issue arose with the room allocations which is not uncommon with a group but it was sorted) and was grateful for their lovely chalets and outstanding meals. Thank you again for all your hard work! It is appreciated.Sincerely,Denette.

Hi Anita ,I was bowled over by the very efficient handling of the Fynbos Forum Conference which I was invited to attend as a birder and field trip leader.The staff was polite, friendly and helpful, each and every one of them, nothing was too much trouble. They quietly and unobtrusively went about their duties, almost unnoticed, but everything was in position and the food was absolutely superb. It was well cooked, well presented and really delicious. I don’t know how it was possible to cater so well for so many people so appreciation to the chefs and their assistants.I was not involved in the accommodation side, so cannot comment on that, but everything else seemed to be just right. As participants we had loads of fun and interaction was possible during breaks as there was sufficient space to network, chill out, chat, and laugh without disturbing anyone else.Thank you to you and your entire staff for such an impressive time.
Kind regards and best wishes Yvonne Bosman (Craig)

Tony's comments are typical of the response that we have received.Venue and food are the two most important aspects of this type of event.

We just want to thank you for all the tips and support to us in hiring a car and organising our recent "four windy days" in Cape Saint Francis (really two and a half, because we spent all of our last day in the beach!).We experienced a very good service from you and all whom interacted with us (at the reception, at the restaurant, and the man who carried us to Saint Francis Bay and received the car keys we rented), we always saw a smile when talking with us.We also felt you were worried about us and we really appreciated that.
Best regards,Pizarro family

I would like to thank you and your staff for a wonderful weekend spent at Cape St Francis Resort. Despite the weather not being so great the food, accommodation and friendly service was awesome.
A great big thank you also goes to a staff member at Joe Fish (Sarafina) who went the extra mile to offer to make my husband a delectable omelet, which he thoroughly enjoyed.
I will remember to mention this to my Corporate Clients.Keep it up.Best regards.Maya Loonat. Fusion Fantasy.Corporate Catering and Event Management.
Monday 18th July 2011
I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and the staff at St Francis Resort for the wonderful service and friendliness that they displayed during our teambuilding last week. Everything was absolutely wonderful and the staff thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The venue was perfect, the food was awesome and very plentiful and the bar / waitressing staff very professional. Ricky was also a blessing to work with and she had everything sorted to a fine tooth comb. The accommodation itself was wonderful, the rooms very clean and comfortable. I had absolutely no complaints at all. Keep up the good work and I really must make an effort from a personal perspective to enjoy a weekend there with my partner. Please send our thanks and regards to the staff at St Francis!

the only decision to be made was which beach. In the end we settled on having our ceremony on the beach at the Cape St Francis resort, a place we have come to love since my brother bought a holiday home there - and we could not have made a better choice. Not only was the venue spectacular and the catering excellent, but from start to finish the staff arranged everything on my behalf and went out of their way to accommodate our every request. They made us feel like movie stars on the day. We stayed at the largest of the three Beach Break villas, three luxury homes right on the dunes with direct access to the beach. With five double bedrooms and a huge open plan living area, deck and garden it was perfect for accommodating us and many of our guests, as well as providing a venue for drinks and canapé after the ceremony. Oh, and did I mention that there were 2 swimming pools? Not for the complex but for our villa, one heated and one not! My young nephews thought they'd arrived in heaven. Each of the (huge!) bedrooms was individually decorated and our master suite was in a "wing" of its own, with a private upstairs lounge, its own small balcony, and a gorgeous four-poster bed. The bedrooms under thatch, meaning that you go to sleep surrounded by the wonderful clean scent that only thatch can provide. The day before the ceremony was near-perfect, with the sun lingering until the last moment and flooding all my pictures with golden, late-afternoon light; and the day of the renewal dawned much the same... until shortly after lunch, that is. The first hint that things were a-changing was a subtle change in the temperature of the breeze - a new chill that was not there an hour earlier. The next rather broader hint was a sonorous blast from the foghorn at the lighthouse on Seal Point. A quick scan of the horizon confirmed everybody's suspicions: the thick mist was rolling on across the peninsula and along the beach to where the resort had already set up our beautiful driftwood arch and deckchairs for the ceremony.When I was ready, I simply walked to the end of the garden where my nephews were waiting for me, and then we made our way down the dune path to the beach where the guests (and Nick!) were waiting barefoot in the glorious sunshine(!). After the ceremony and the many, many photos were was all over we simply walked hand in hand back up the dunes again to the house, where the fairies had paid us a visit, cleaned our room again and laid out fresh towels. And I'm sorry, but nothing says "you are a princess" better than fresh towels twice in one day. Through the resort restaurant I had ordered canap�and champagne to be served in the villa, so as soon as we got back to the house, waiters started circulating with glasses and trays. I had chosen four canapé from their menu, namely: tomato and basil bruschetta; smoked salmon and cream cheese blinis; fillet steak and wasabi mayonnaise phyllo baskets; and roasted vegetable and Brie tartlets. Although all were good, I have to say that the fillet steak phyllo baskets actually blew me away - not only gorgeous to look at but even better to eat, with perfectly pink meat and wonderful textural contrasts. And from there, we strolled into the warm night and over to the resort's restaurant, Joe Fish, where our beautifully-laid long table by the swimming pool awaited us. As we had already had copious canapé I figured we could skip the starters and had ordered seafood platters for the whole table and large bowls of Greek salad to share. I had eaten the Joe Fish seafoof platters before, so I was prepared for their size and quality - but I think it is fair to say the guests were astonished, in a good way. Each platter consisted of generous portions of fish, mussels, calamari and prawns, as well as rice and fries. They are meant to serve 2 people each, but easily stretch to three and the quality of all the seafood was excellent - fresh and tasty. And once the plates had been cleared, we stayed on until late into the night, talking, laughing and enjoying each other's company. It was everything I had hoped for. And if anybody reading this is remotely considering a beach wedding in South Africa (or a renewal of their vows!) I cannot recommend the Cape St Francis resort highly enough - it is a beautiful setting, good value for money, and has professional staff who will go out of their way to help you and accommodate your wishes (Danni in particular was a total star!).
Monday 23rd May 2011
Many of the teams and officials stayed at the Resort and appreciated the reduced prices you gave them for the duration of the event. In addition, the conference facilities were magnificent and entirely appropriate for the functions we held there. Please pass on our thanks to the caterers who produced quality food throughout the event. I really would like to thank Dani, Chelsea and Keith for looking after our many requests and requirements with such efficiency and attention to detail.

What a fantastic experience. Worth every cent. The last time I stayed at the estate was nine years ago at Sharks Point Cottage. Things have only gotten better. The rooms were clean, the facilities were great, safety was not an issue. Furthermore, the booking process through SafariNow was fantastic. Great product and service.

Thank you for the excellent service. It's a pity that we never have enough time to enjoy the accommodation.

Sunday 6th March 2011
Thank you, thank you, thank you to you, Anita, Danni and the great team from Cape St Francis Resort who made our stay at Cape St Francis Resort so enjoyable. From our arrival, I knew that we were in very capable hands and things just moved so smoothly. If there were hiccoughs I mostly certainly did not hear of them, and from the feedback that I have received, everyone had a fantastic time. There is no single person from the resort who did not go out of their way to assist in any way they could. Of course it's a beautiful place and I know that many of the folk who stayed over, enjoyed the food and relaxed atmosphere of the resort.

Huge thanks to the entire team at the Cape St Francis Resort for making my big day so special. As always, Beach Break remains a very special place and it was so amazing staying there for the weekend. Planning my party was a breeze and I have to thank Dane, Barry and their respective teams for putting in the dancefloor, building up the fires, supplying the bar and making sure that everything was in place for the event. Break and Loerika were incredible and nothing was too much trouble in terms of their service. Our Champagne Brunch the following day was DELICIOUS thanks to Danni, and Geraldine, our housekeeper, was simply amazing & I wish to congratulate you on a spectacular venue, an awesome team and a fabulous party! Thank You So Much & I will be back!
