We stayed at Moonstruck for 2 nights just after Christmas 2008. Having arrived with no expectations (sometimes it's nice to travel "blind"), we were immediately won over by the place and it turned out to be one of the highlights of our 2 week holiday in South Africa. This is no small praise given that we were lucky enough to stay in some top quality places along the way.....
For us, it hit exactly the right note on many levels - very relaxed atmosphere (reflecting that of Pringle Bay itself), great attention to detail (without being fussy), friendly & helpful yet unobtrusive staff, lots of lovely little touches that are well thought out and not over the top.
And then there's the setting.....we were in room 4 which has a huge terrace with table & chairs plus a daybed. The view of the bay over the fynbos (great for birdwatching) with the mountains in the background is spectacular. The room itself was spacey and very tastefully kitted out - again, plenty of care and thought has clearly gone into this. If forced to come up with any negative points, I would say the shower isn't great (not very powerful) but that's a minor quibble which is greatly outweighed by everything else.
We have already talked about returning to South Africa just so we can go back to Moonstruck on Pringle Bay for a longer stay - highly recommended !
