The mooring ball was sturdy and reliable. Great holding in 37 knot winds. The food at the restaurant was pretty good.

Very pleasant stay, Arthur the owner was very helpful from docking to sharing info for boat parts, we had to fly home for few days and we felt very safe to leave our boat at the dock. Food are very good, there is no pool but a beautiful beach and many walking paths. A short dinghy ride to town. We will come back here for sure.

My husband and I are currently staying here from Virginia. This place is about natural beauty and charm. The hotel is ran with love. The beaches on this island are the best beaches in the carribean. Some you would need to take a water taxi but we’ll worth it. Rooms incredibly clean with great air conditioning. The hotel is rustic and they are working like hell to make improvements. Please remember on remote islands, repairs are harder to do. They might not have everything on the menu but what they do have is amazing. I wish I could post pictures

I can’t say enough nice things about the kind people. The owner Sidney was fabulous. An added us is that the food is some of the best in the islands. We will be back. Great people

Location is perfect, staff friendly. We had a small problem during our stay that was swiftly fixed and corrected once we had informed the staff. We will come back and do recommend!

Stayed on mooring. Entire mooring pulled out of ground and we hit boat behind us in the middle of the night. From what I can understand, we were the 5th mooring to do so this season.

We arrived at Stocking Island late afternoon and as it was our first visit here, happily reserved the weekly mooring ball to insure a spot in the busy Georgetown area. The ball had nice anti-chaffing protection on it - made it a little more challenging to pick up - but do-able. Had a very protected ball for the blow that came thru and were also really close to the Chat & Chill and cruiser activities.

We were on a St. Francis owned mooring ball for 2 weeks. The entire mooring pulled out on 3/5 at 1015pm and we quickly drifted and collided with a nearby vessel. Moorings were advertised as “helix driven moorings”, but a Manta Ray mooring anchor is what was still attached to the ball, tackle, and our boat. Dockmaster was apologetic and allowed us to stay at the marina at no additional cost for a few days while we assessed damages and made some repairs. He stated (as does their rental agreement) that they have no liability whatsoever. Area cruisers suggested this was the 4th failure in the past year. Dockmaster said the moorings are inspected every 6 months and that there has only been one incident due to an oversized motor yacht that piled out a mooring. We are a 41’ catamaran, well within the stated 45’ maximum length allowed.

This is 5-Star Bahamian style! What you may miss from the Ritz or Chubb Cay, you gain in gracious and friendly hosts, million dollar views of sunrises over the Atlantic ocean and personal service from the new owner Arthur. Purchased only a year and a half ago, Arthur has undertaken an ambitious effort to upgrade the facilities, restaurant and service without compromising on a thing. The result is a relaxed and friendly resort that captures the essence of the Bahamas. Rated at a 5' maximum draft, you can easily enter the marina at high tide if you draw a little deeper. And the floating dock is a nice feature for getting on/off your boat w/o straining. Enjoy your stay.

Terrific place. The staff couldn’t be better. They are all wearing smiles and go over and above to accommodate you. We’ll be back soon.

Staff extremely friendly and accommodating. They need to add power for Yachts on the dock, we ran the geni for 10 days. Magnificent protection and ocean beach access.
