Reviewed 14 July 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a short holiday for 3 nights. On arrival we where warmly greeted and immediately upgraded at no extra cost. Our room was stunning! Very comfortable and clean. It was cleaned and made up every morning by friendly staff.

Breakfast was the highlight of the stay, as we where spoilt for choice with various yogurts, cereals, fresh fruit, hams, cheeses, toasts and spreads also the options of a hot cooked breakfast, which was delicious!

Another standout factor was the friendly and very helpful manager, he went out of his way to ensure our happiness, such as providing us with all BBQ utensils necessary for us to enjoy a BBQ on the deck at sunset, also equipping us with free 24/7 WI-FI in our room.

I highly recommend Bliss on Beacon Isle to any traveller or holiday maker, as it is low in cost but of the heights standard. I know if I travel to Plettenberg Bay again, I will definitely treat my self to another stay here!

We visited Becon Isle and found it to be so outdated in its decor.... we also had tea, coffee and apple tart. The display fridge was so "tired" and tart...sad to even have put on display, nevermind selling it. A huge need to refurbish and do away with this old age home look. They got position in abundance -make use of it!!!

We arrived and were promptly met by Deon, even though he just had a new baby! He catered to us even though he was busy! We booked the Milkwood suite and a budget double, and he upgraded the budget to a very nice suite. The rooms were good sized, had fairly large refridgerators, and huge bathrooms. The place was built by Deon and his family and had wonderful wood counters and beams. It felt very luxurious, and was really reasonably priced. The full breakfast was cooked by Deon and served in a nice dining room. Deon suggested a restaurant right on the beach for dinner, which was fun and good food. If the weather had been better, we would have spent time on the beautiful beach.

Room Tip: We loved our rooms, although apparently some people came into a room over our daughter's room re...

We enjoyed and savoured every minute of our time at Bliss. We booked the budget room as it was a last minute decision to stop over in Plett, and were pleasantly surprised when we were upgraded as the TV was not working in the budget room. Our bathroom had a massive bath and shower and wonderful bed that was a comfort after a stressful journey. The surroundings are gorgeous and Bliss is a stone's throw away from the beach. And the breakfast was so delicious. Excellent service all round and definitely a place I will go back to.

Room Tip: Rooi Els was our room and it was really divine. Also great size for 3 people

We've stayed for one night in a basic outside room - clean but very small. I've checked all the photo's but just can't find a picture of our bathroom ( !! ) there, in fact, the toilet/shower area's been very compact and small indeed. There's been a little problem with ... ants.

Reviewed 26 January 2013

we used Bliss on Beacon Isle as a stop-over on our trip from Cape Town to Addo Elephant National Park, so booked the "budget" room through booking.com as somewhere to spend the night for a great price. Upon arrival we were greeted with a friendly welcome and shown to our room. While we weren't expecting much due to the price of the room, it was tucked away under one of the main rooms, making for quite a noise coming from the room above late into the evening. The budget room had a musty smell and also the linen was threadbare and bathroom door only opened partially. Rusks to go with the coffee and tea provided in the room was a nice addition and an attempt had been made to improve the odour of the room by adding incense sticks.
While not a great review for this particular room, the friendly staff and looks of the other rooms would probably lead to an enjoyable stay if staying for more than one night.
