5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

The Beacon Isle is the Beacon Isle... Will recommend it to everyone, old and young. It has the perfect location in Plet and there is a lot to do in the area!! Have been there twice and it stays amazing!! Truly a legendary and iconic hotel.

PS: Go sit in the front of the hotel with a cocktail and look over the ocean!!

Warm and friendly welcome and room and facilities exceeded all expectations. Walked on the 3 beaches, found a pansy shell (wow) and visited friends. A really special part of the world and not to be missed.

Great stay at the Beacon Isle. Rooms have a sea view, are well maintained and the staff are friendly, helpful and professional. The food was good and the menu is comprehensive with a whole page of meals for Vegans. We were disappointed, though, that their table top barbecue, prominently displayed on their menu was not available. The hotel caters for families, particularly those with young children and while we were there in the off season there was still enough for the youngsters. Our only negative experience was the wi-fi. While it is available, the bandwidth was so poor that after numerous attempts I gave up and used my 3G card.

A good road from Port Elizabeth and only just over two hours away. The re-vamped hotel is really great for the whole family. The rooms are outstanding and the grounds are first class. The food is at a price to meet all pockets.

We stayed here with 2 kids (6 and 2) over December. We were fortunate to have superb weather. This hurl is extremely organized and all the staff are ready for the crazy season. The whole city is packed, however things are completely seamless at beacon island.

I am very impressed. Me and my wife had such a good time and would suggest this place to anyone. Awesome honeymoon spot. The staff is professional and friendly. The amenities are top class. The view is spectacular. And Plettenberg Bay has so much going on. Loved every second.

The food at the Restaurant is exceptional! We even had the Chef who came to find out if my husband was happy with his tender steak. Indigo Bay Seafood and Grill House atmosphere is very warm and relaxing with the waves splashing next to you. This Restaurant is surrounded by glass and therefore opens-up a unique dining experience. They come highly recommended; I can't wait to dine there again.
