I booked a standard room and it was much more spacious then I expected. The spa bath was the best surprise. The staff is friendly and the security great. Will defnitely come back. I was treated like a queen.

The team at the La Vista Lodge were absolutely brilliant, in particular Cornell! They were all so friendly and attentive, and made the stay memorable. The views from our room (Luxury King Suite with Lagoon View) were gorgeous and we really enjoyed having breakfast on the patio upstairs too... felt very spoilt the whole time. Definitely recommended if you are... More

We booked the honeymoon suite, mainly because we wanted more space and did we get more space! A lovely private lounge opening onto a huge terrace, a large bedroom and en-suite. The whole lodge was lovely, the view from our private terrace beautiful. We couldn't fault it. Breakfasts were delicious and everyone there was friendly and helpful. We wouldn't hesitate... More

We had such a wonderful stay here and the managers and everyone involved made sure that this part of our honeymoon was extra special. The rooms were big, spacious, clean and had such great views. Location was great, as was the food! Certainly no complaints at all - thank you for such a great few days!

I had a great stay at La Vista, in summary: My room was spacious, clean, comfortable, well appointed. The staff could not have been more friendly, helpful or professional. Breakfast is delicious. It is a 5-10 minute down the steep hill to Lookout Beach which makes for a great morning run, or an easy drive. The Lodge is quiet and... More

My mom and I recently stayed at La Vista Lodge in Plettenburg Bay. I cannot recommend this Lodge more highly. Incredible views, excellent friendly service from all the staff and the most beautiful luxurious room. Everything possible was done to meet my diet requirements and to make our stay special. Thank you La Vista Lodge. We will be back!

Rooms and bathrooms are extremely big, neat and comfy. Good breakfast spread inclusive. Location is good with lovely views over Plett. All in all an excellent experience and will highly recommend to all.

Our room was enormous with a large bed and a separate area for chilling and watching TV. the balcony had a table and chairs to enjoy a great view of... More

We stayed only for one night as were travelling down the coast. All staff were very accommodating and the standard of the rooms are very good. Excellent views. The breakfast was included and was excellent, although we did have to wait a while for the cooked, we didn't mind this as there was plenty of other good food to nibble... More
