“a small piece of heaven..”
Reviewed 3 September 2014

The view from my room was exquisite, we spotted whales and dolphins. Great restaurants and facilities in the hotel all with excellent service. While sitting down for breakfast and enjoying the sun and magnificent views, we had the pleasure of meeting the hotel's charming resident birds. These birds wait at the door expecting someone to open the door and walk in and out whenever they need to- was too cute! We will certainly go back for more!

We stayed at the Beacon Island Resort recently and I can not wait to return. Beautiful location, right next to the sea, with great restaurants and friendly staff. Counting the days till we return and then the whole family will join us. The ultimate holiday!

Whales and dolphins galore to be seen from this beautiful Hotel. The 5 star service and views are magnificent. Our corner suite had panaramic sunfilled sites of both river and beach area. Surfing and diving available on your door step.. Relaxing outdoor sun lounges, indoor pool and gym facilities are great.. Really a holiday worth enjoying!

An excellent venue providing sterling value for money.
Outstanding facilities, entertainment, service and restaurants.
I've been going to the Beacon Isle for over 10 years, and I have yet to have a bad experience.
Highly recommended!

I have been holidaying at the Beacon Isle Hotel for years and years, and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone - in particular to families! The staff is very friendly, the hotel is in a PERFECT location and the rooms are clean and in very well maintained condition.The service is very very good. and the staff is always very happy to see you.

One thing that is very important to mention, is that the hotel and it's services etc is always consistent. It is always kept at a high standard, which makes it great, as we like receiving the service that we expect!

Thank you everyone at the Beacon Isle for making our stay very enjoyable yet again.

As we have timeshare at this hotel we have been coming here for many years. The hotel goes the extra mile in catering for the needs of the family and has a very busy activities desk and a very full daily programme for the whole family. The restaurants are of a good standard and the catering manager & manageress always seem to be interacting with the guests. Service can be a little slow, but when you are on holiday I don't think this is particularly relevant. An added bonus, at the correct time of year, is the whale watching. Magnificent creatures. Definitely a great stay.

Room Tip: Higher rooms facing the main beach, overlooking the swimming pool, are, in our opinion the best

Once again we stayed at the Beacon Isle Hotel for our time share week 31. We find this hotel very peaceful and are able to relax completely. The lovely new sitting area above the indoor pool which is for adults only, is a beautiful addition and you are able to get full sun exposure. So nice when you have come from winter, rainy weather. All the staff of the hotel are most pleasant and very helpful, which is a plus, they will go out of their way to be of assistance. The hotel is doing a upgrade of the Sea Lounge so next year it should look even better. Also a lovely place to sit and watch the whales, Dolphins, or read and just relax. If you are thinking about coming to Plett this is the hotel that has everything you need, and you do not even need a car, they will take you anywhere you need to go, and fetch you. Great. Will be back:-)

Room Tip: Always try and ask for a room that faces the grass and sea, beautiful views and worth it, also ask f...
