Cruise ship shaped building of the resort will give you feeling of a ship docked at bay. heated pool, restaurant/bar on top of ocean, sumptuous food, warm and friendly staff and kid's activities were a few highlights of the resort. Small and beautiful town of Plett is also not very far (2-3 kms) from the resort.

It was like being on a cruise ship, docked in Plett for the duration. Great going out of season, no queues or parking hassles. The staff are all wonderfully helpful and cheerful, despite being end of season! Hotel entertainment activities could be beefed up for a little more excitement.but the prizes for the lucky ones are very gererous. A must... More

Had a great stay at the Beacon Island, even though i was alone until my husband joined me, I never felt uneasy, as if I was welcomed by my own family.

Everything was A1. Friendliness & helpfulness of the staff, excellent food, service, entertainment & the feeling of privacy/seclusion once in your own suite even in such a busy hotel. Enjoyed every moment.

One's again it was a pleasure to stay at the Beacon Island hotel. Every thing from the arrival to check in was great as always. the beautiful view over the ocean makes this very special. The friendliness and service at the restaurant make the dinner even more special

Something you should allow yourself to experience!! The climate in Plettenbergbay is usually something to dream of. With such an excellent resort; food and entertainment you do not need to look for anything else. I have been at the resort since 1980 ( sometimes more than once a year) and still love going there whenever possible!!!!

I haven't stayed at the hotel but after having a cocktail in the bar we were very glad we chose to stay in The Plettenberg. The setting and views are spectacular but the service in the bar was terrible and let's just say we could have made better cocktails ourselves!
