“Absolutely Unforgettable!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Wow Wow Wow! Childhood memories of 2 visits more than 40 years ago were confirmed and exceeded! Went for 1 night to show my husband why it's always been a special highlight and ended up staying 3 nights. Thanks to Andrew for moving us to a fantastic corner unit with views of the beach, lagoon and ocean! All the staff was friendly and the resort felt brand new.

Will be back!

Exellent holiday accommodation, clean and beautiful, friendly and professional staff. Pity though that the architects failed to incorporate 2 or 3 floors of undercover parking within the hotel building at that time - a bit late now. Would also have been nice if the river were left to flow to the sea under a bridge where the road to the parking is now.

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.
