“A perfectly relaxing and beautiful destination”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

i did not unfortunately get to experience the rooms, however lunch was a pleasure. The location is spectacular, with gorgeous views. It's cool around the hotel due to the winds so a bit chilly for a swim. Though perfectly charming to flax. My only disappointment would be the lack of finesse to the establishment. The structure is very reminiscent inside of the Gugenheim in New York, but the decor and layout inside was not as complimentary to the welcoming ambience. I did expect singing a little more suave in a relaxed manner for this particular location. Otherwise a wonderful destination with lots of great activities close by.

Nice setting I mean, you can have room at left or right, the sea is on your doorstep. With good restaurants and atractions around you, you could not ask for more. Will defnitely return with family as their is alot to do!!!

Room Tip: Anyone, accept at the back! Front is obviously the best.

Their own logo is " a home away from home" if you stay longer than two days. A real family holiday with good events for family members. The service from all service staff is excellent and friendly. Security 100%. Restaurants are fine and very reasonable in their prices and a very good variety of choices. The daily service of the bedrooms are very punctual and leave the rooms very neat and tidy. It has now become our annual holiday to the envy of all our friends.

The Hotel is really worthy of its 5 stars ! We stayed there in May 2013..... My only concern is -- I did not know if the heated pool.... was for kiddies or grown up?? Coz every time my husband and I wanted to have a quite relaxing time in the heated pool.... It was full of screaming and yelling little kiddies. This was a real run away for us.

The food at the deck restaurant was absolutely delicious. The staff was very friendly and went out their to keep us updated of our order. Lovely place to unwind. The pool areas is amazing indeed. The lunch experience was worth driving from Knysna.

As you arrive at beacon island you feel you have arrived in paradise. You get the amazing setting and then the super friendly staff. The biggest decision is then what to do and the biggest problem is that there is never enough time. Lie by the pool or private beach drinking cocktails, swim in the indoor or outdoor pool or sea, scuba dive, snorkel, tour, eat, whatever you desire it's certainly available here

Room Tip: Sea or pool facing is best. Don't bother with laggoon or robberg facing. Treat yourself to a lux...

Stayed at Beacon Isle hotel for a week in September. From the start at checking in and having no problem even though we were early to the entire week, Best service and an excellent and well run Hotel. Nothing was too much trouble and all staff seemed happy to make the experience something special. Breakfasts really reasonable and well presented. Decent selection of dinner option inside the hotel and so many outside! Excellent facilities and rooms were immaculate and a pleasure to stay in, Will definitely stay here again and feel well rested and relaxed :))
