Situation perfect, facilities excellent and service top drawer. Proximity to surrounding eating and drinking spots excellent. Restaurant of a high calibre.
The bay was filled with whales throughout our stay, adding to the magnificent vista from the hotel rooms and balconies

Very pleasant stay. Plettenberg is a beautiful town. Nearby Knysna has more activities to pass the day when bored. The staff are very friendly. Reception staff very efficient. shop is small but stocks essentials. Boutique very expensive.

We had a very relaxed stay with good food and service.
Location is great.
Recommend when not too busy.
Make sure you get a sea facing room.
The entertainment crew really did a great job even if we did not participate as much as others.

We were on holiday and stayed at Beacon Island Resort during May 2014. The Hotel is located in a wonderful surrounding with ocean on all sides with nice garden and beaches. It has a heated swimming pool inside the Hotel and open air swimming pool outside overlooking the sea. we had a room on first floor with balcony attached to it. It was nice to sit in the balcony and enjoy the ocean view. Because of the great location it is nice place to see sun rising from the ocean. Also one can sit on the rocks and see waves splashing on them. the rooms were clean and of decent size.

A warm welcome at reception set the tone for a great holiday - only too short! I had a beautiful, unfussy room on the warm side (in winter). Loved the good lighting for reading (in easy chair, bed, desk space - wow!) and general good interior design of the place. The view is magnificent and one can just wander from the hotel lawn to the beach. I was there after school holidays, so it was quiet - just what I needed. When I reported a broken hairdryer, it was fixed in minutes and with a smile. (I can't rate price as I was there on timeshare points.) Packing space was ample for one, may be a bit tight for more than one person.
