“Stunning views and a warm hostess”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

I visited Plettenberg bay with my parents. We were greeted by Pam and the offer of coffee was welcome after a long drive. We had the seahorse and dolphin room. All rooms open on to a big deck, which has this gorgeous view of the Indian ocean. I am sure the sunrise and sunsets would be simply splendid but unfortunately for us it was over cast every single day during our 3 day stay. Woke up to a delicious breakfast spread and Pam helped plan our day with suggestions and map. Each evening when we came back she offered us tea/coffee with cookies, which again was welcome. The heated blankets and room heater worked well and was needed as it got cold each evening/night. Pam was very warm to us and even helped us with our luggage. I would defi stay here again.

Dolphin's Playground were selected because of its proximity both to Robberg Nature Reserve (hiking) and Tenikwa Wildlife Awareness Center.

I was greeted by Pam the owner when I arrived and showed the room and told about general house rules. Were served a beer and some peanuts as well. Since I was going to get up at 6 am each morning I did not think about a hot breakfast, but I was actually served fruit salad and a full English breakfast at 6:15 am which I thought were great.

Room was comfortable, clean and had direct access to the great balcony. The B & B is a 5 minute walk to the beach. There is also an honesty bar here.

I really enjoyed my stay here and would stay here again if I'm returning to Plettenburg bay again.

Had a great greeting from Pam the owner - a couple of beers which were very welcome after our long drive from Cape Town. We had the Whale Room - beautiful views. We stayed four nights and unfortunately the weather wasn't very kind to us for a couple of days so we had to have breakfast inside. However, we did manage to eat breakfast on the decking for the last two mornings. Plettenberg Bay is stunning, only a very short walk to the beach and a short drive to the Lookout - we had a couple of delicious meals here. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Thank you Pam for making us so welcome.

Room Tip: Whale Room has best views.

A big thank you to Pam Mears. We booked the Dolphin room which was lovely, welcome drink, superb breakfast and a super location just off the beach. Plett is truly wonderful wish we could have stayed longer. Had a super meal at the lookout which Pam recommended. Hope to go back again someday.

Room Tip: You must go to Plettenburg and stay with Pam.

Stayed recently for 4 nights in the lovely comfortable Seahorse Room. Breakfasts were beautiful and served by two lovely ladies on the terrace overlooking the ocean-bliss! Pam, the owner, a lovely lady
was a wonderfully warm host and offered good advice re things to do,restaurants etc. She will even make reservations for you.
All in all, we were welcomed into Pam's lovely home and had a thoroughly nice stay. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Pam

Located near the beach (2-3 minutes walking), its has just a few rooms, all of them very well decorated, spacious and clean. The room we booked didnt have aircon, but the fan did the job. Also, there is no fridge inside the room, but they one you can shre with other guests.The owner Pam is very friendly and will give you hints about what to do and where to go. They have space for parking car, but there is no gate for them. In any case, we felt very safe in our stay at the city. A very complete breakfast is served at a deck located at the upper level, where you can see the sea and, with some lucky, maybe dolphins and whales. If you have plans for dinning at one of the restaurants the city has, you will need transportation because they are not in walking distance. If you have plans for a nice beach holiday, this is your place!
