“Fantastic stay at Beacon Island”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

We drove for 14 hours to get to the resort which was well worth the drive. The staff were very helpful, the resort was clean and had lots to do for children. As it was timeshare we assumed it was self catering which it isn't which meant we had to eat out daily which we mostly did at the foyer restaurant which had brilliant service and was good value for money.

We have been to the BI many times, but this time we totally relaxed, did not drive around the area and we recommend to all out there, that to visit the BI is a must, as once there it will call you back time and time again. A truly fantastic resort where everything is just superb.

This must be one of the finest positions for any hotel in the world.Flanked by 2 spectacular beaches, a lagoon and the Indian ocean it couldn't be more perfectly sited.We were fortunate to have a corner room which provided us with an extra large room with 2 sets of sliding windows providing magnificent views of the beach and the lagoon.the room was perfectly finished without being elaborate, modern with all the necessary fittings including a flat screen tv.Staff were all enthusiastic,knowledgeable and pleasant, at the same time giving fast efficient service. The hotel food which I understand is out sourced is both tasty and good value.Our only gripe is the outdoor morning entertainment which we find intrusive if one wants to relax, but it's hard not to relax in such magnificent surroundings.

I have been going to the Beacon Island for about 10years. There was twice that we never went, one to try another week away and then one year just never went. Well we are back. Since the renovation we have been every year. We find that it may be busy, but at our time share week there are not many children. We can sit on the lawn and relax, just watching the sea or walking on the beach, read or sleep. This is our weeks holiday for the year and try not to do anything strenuous. My partner has a very hard year coping with all his customers and just needs to chill out. We both find that being by the sea is very important for our well being. The food is good in all the restaurants. They have a wonderful spa in the hotel which helps towards the R & R. Definitely a lovely place to consider for a rest or honeymoon:-)

Room Tip: Always try and get a room that faces the lawn, its the best place to be.

Plettenburg bay, what a lovely town to visit. Its beautiful, warm and friendly. My wwarm visit was completed by a stay in Beacon Island Resort. The place is built is built right in the middle of the ocean,magnificent sea views and mountains. Though I was not with my kids but I noticed that the resort would have been heaven for them. Great place for the entire family with excellent service.
