You can't beat this location as it is right on the beach. The rooms appear to be almost brand new. Really nice bathrooms too. A great place to stay in Plettenberg Bay for the money as most hotels are a little pricey here
Just keep in mind that things are not ran in good order as the staff seems out of touch with things. Even coming to the hotel is hard to do. You can see it from afar, but there are no signs or directions on how to reach the hotel. You have to figure that out on your own and this takes a little time and asking questions to passerby's. Room service can't be charged to the room. You must pay cash. Never heard of that! Parking is at your own risk and believe me, there is plenty of risk in South Africa when having any asset you want to keep. And the parking is quite a distance from the hotel. No air conditioners in the rooms. Just ceiling fans. But the temp here on the water is usually very very cool. You dont need the a/c.
Other than the above, it is a good place to stay and really the only choice. Breakfast a mere $2.50 for a full breakfast.
