What a great experience my friend and I had at the Robberg Beach Lodge. We were greeted by Victor who gave us a rundown on the lodge and certainly knew his stuff. We were taken to our rooms which were spacious yet cosy as the rooms are so tastefully decorated. The bathrooms are enormous! The little kitchenette tucked away in... More

Oh wow, it sounds like you had a wonderful time. It must have been so nice to spend some quality time with your friend in what we think is one of the most beautiful spots in South Africa (we may be a little biased though). The sound of the sea is sometimes all you need and we're so glad you... More

We used Trip Advisor to plan and book this, and we were not disappointed. Robberg lodge was everything we expected and more. We had a sea facing room, which was spectacular. The staff were very friendly and assisted us with local restaurant choices etc. highly recommended, and we will be back!

We stayed for two nights in a spacious suite with sea view. The lodge was perfect with bright rooms, fantastic breakfast, and excellent service. We especially liked the 'port/sherry nightcap' provided in the bar as a delightful finish to a busy day spent learning to surf on the beach directly in front of the hotel. We really couldn't fault this... More

Many have tried, many have succeeded and many continue to make the most of it. We hope that you had heaps of fun. It sounds like it was the perfect family vacation for a family... More

Stayed at the lodge for 2 days in late April and we could not fault the place. The location, the service and staff, the breakfast, the rooms were all great.

We're delighted that you got to visit Plettenberg bay in April, the weather was absolutely spectacular for this time of year. Although the seasons were changing, we totally agree, it is the kind of place you can just relax and as you said, "watch the world go by". Before I drift off from your relaxing reminders, thank you for your... More

We stayed at the Robberg during April and were blessed with 3 fantastically sunny, warm days. Our rooms (2 adjoining) were large and extremely comfortable. The restaurant, lounge and roof top bar were all decorated very stylishly, as were our rooms. Thanks to Beth in reception our 3 days were action packed and we ate like kings in the restaurants...

If you are looking for a great place to unwind, in a stunning setting... this is the place!! The gorgeous blue flag status, Robberg beach, is only steps away, and is only a short drive to the shops of main street or to the hiking trails of Robberg Nature Reserve.

Travelling with family to Plettenbergy Bay is perfect for exactly what you're talking about: relaxation and exploring the wonders nature has to offer. It sounds like you did lots of walking: between the sights and sounds of Main Street and the hiking trails of the Robberg Nature Reserve.

The rooms are beautifully furnished, decor is classy-beachy, perfect for us. We are used to beach vacations down the California coast, the islands & cape of mass, and this felt just like home to us.
