I've been holidaying at Beacon Isle for almost 40 years now - first as a girl with my parents and now as a mother with teenagers. The hotel must be one of the few in the world that keeps getting better. While some of the other RCI timeshare hotels have gone down the drain - my parents actually gave their units at Mabula back to RCI - Beacon Isle kept up with the times. They keep renovating, they cater for babies, teenagers, parents and grandparents alike with lots of activities and fun for every age. The rooms are newly decorated and look fabulous and the Captain's Cabin has a totally new and fresh look - we LOVED it! The three restaurants inside the hotel now all belong to the same vibrant couple and the food is incredible - affordable, generous portions and a big variety. There really is something for every taste bud. The juice is a bit expensive - R20 a glass, which cost the same as one of their hearty breakfasts! We also liked the new cocktail area with the swing-chairs on the deck with a stunning see view to boot. Good idea to restrict the area to 18 year and older - just a pity some parents still smuggled their kids in. It make it difficult for the rest of us who abide by the rules and the staff should refuse to serve the children. We were so impressed with the hotel that we decided to buy a second room - and hopefully we will be able to enjoy it for another 40 years!
