Having never visited Plettenberg Bay before, we were really amazed at this hotel. It's location is excellent - right on the beach (a little walkway takes you across from the hotel grounds onto the soft white sand). The resort facilities were great, too: a lovely bar lounge, an outdoor pool (which affords you a sea view), an indoor heated pool (great for kids), more than enough pool loungers, attentive staff walking about, and a kids entertainment programme (the one day we were told by our 3-year-old that she didn't want to go anywhere else as she wanted to "paint a t-shirt, make a musical instrument, create a bouncy bird, and complete the treasure hunt". Sherideen, who runs the programme, is a real credit to the hotel. The room was spacious enough for the baby camping cot and sleeper couch folded out for the toddler - and the huge window (that could open) giving you a sea view was awesome! On a negative side, we missed the card saying "please service room" so we didn't have clean towels the one day. And there was a little inconsistency with the cocktails - on arrival we ordered a mojito, which was excellent. The next day we had another and it was not at all enjoyable. Food was very good (cinnamon sugar french toast was excellent value for money). Very accommodating with kids sharing meals/drinks.
