“Lovely views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Mike & Rene are such friendly hosts, and make you feel that you have known them for ages. Mike is very keen to help and advise about places in the area to visit and eat and will not hesitate to lift the phone and book something for you.
Our room was well furnished , light and airy, spotless and had a balcony with a lovely view of Plettenberg Bay. We also had a kitchen area. Breakfasts were delicious, fresh fruit , beautifully presented and anything you wished freshly cooked to order.

Room Tip: Self contained apartment with balcony is good value.

Had the most Amazing time at this lovely b&b. Renne and Mike the owners went out there way to make our stay perfect for us. Our room was comfortable and very clean and had a lovely view overlooking Plettenberg bay. As we only stayed 2 nights Rene and Mike helped us decide on the best things to do while we were there, they couldnt of been any more helpful. We loved Plettenberg bay and will definatley be going back there. We hope to keep in contact with Renee and Mike as they are such lovely people and made our honeymoon very special.

We had a great night's stay in Panoramic Blue. Mike and Rene are such gracious hosts and they have a lovely home. Our room was clean and comfortable. It was in a very safe area and in a good location. But the highlight of our stay was definitely chatting with our hosts and other guests over breakfast. Mike and Rene make you feel at ease and they have such a warm and positive energy about them.

We would definitely recommend this B&B to other travelers.

Mike is a great host. He was very welcoming and full of local information which he was keen to give us. The views of Plettenberg Bay from the rooms is perfect. You will not be disappointed and it is very good value for money.

We stayed only one night in Panoramic Blue. We also booked a standard room but we were upgraded to a bigger one because it was empty that day (without extra charges).
The room is a mini apartment. It is full equipped. Cozy. It might be cold but you have heater. There is a balcony with a beautiful view but there is a tree (the neighbor's tree) that blocks a bit the view. The other rooms have also beautiful view.
Mike and Rene are a lovely couple. They were very nice and helpful! Mike explained to us everything and told us what we could do during the sole day we stayed in Plettenberg Bay.
The breakfast was prepared and served by Mike and Rene! It was delicious! Fruits, yogurt, coffee, tea, toasts and orange juice. She also offered us eggs and bacon.
There is parking and the house is very safe.
Tips: book directly with them. We have problems with booking.com. You have to pay by cash there (no credits cards accepted as they do not have the machine).
You will not regret to spend your vacation in Plettenberg staying in this place. We hope to go back!

Room Tip: All rooms have beautiful view. If you plan to stay only one night in Plettenberg as we did, I think...

We booked a standard room at Panaromica Blue, but on arrival, we were upgraded to the biggest room, which had its own private balcony and (in our opinion) the best view.
The room was huge, with a balcony as well. It had a kitchenette (we only used the kettle!!) and a fantastic bathroom, with walk-in shower. If you wanted to get up early enough, we think you could see the sunrise over Plettenberg Bay (we never managed that!).

The breakfast was nice, with fresh fruit and a choice of hot breakfast. It was served on the patio area of the main house.

Mike and Renee were great hosts, and very welcoming. Earlier reviews say they made people feel like personal friends, and we completely agree with this. Mike gave numerous suggestions of places to visit, things to see, and restaurants to eat in. All of these helped enhance our experience in Plettenberg.
Mike and Renee said that one of their favourite restaurants was Emily Moon, and Mike kindly booked us a table there one evening. After going there, we can see why it is a favourite, and we would recommend visiting.

The only downside of this B&B (and we would imagine many other B&B's too), is that it is not in the centre of Plett, so you have to drive to restaurants. For us, this was not a problem, and it is worth a drive to Emily moon anyway!

We would stay here again in the future and would recommend it to our friends.

It was absolutely fantastic staying at Panoramic Blue. Not only was the accommodation itself gorgeous, with a fabulous view, comfy bed and luxury bathroom, but the hospitality was second to none. Mike and Rene gave us such a warm welcome, we felt like personal friends. The breakfast was great, with pancakes on our last morning, and Mike gave us lots of tips on things to do and places to eat. He even gave us a piano lesson! Would definitely recommend staying here - it's great value for money, brilliant hospitality, and we can't wait to return. Plett itself is also fantastic, but the warm welcome we received made it that extra bit special!
