The Robberg Beach Lodge
Ranked #5 of 13 Hotels in Plettenberg Bay
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 1, 2013

When we arrived there were a whale just 100 metres from the beach... and this is normal in this season! Our rooms and bathrooms are very big and everything is new especially the forniture. Free wi fi and a delicious breakfast served in nice room near the swimming pool. With a gps we found the place quite easily but during the night the area is very dark.

Ah, what a great moment for you to arrive to a performance by the whales! It's a great privilege for us to have these amazing creatures visit us in the bay, and we feel honoured to be able to share this with our guests. Thanks for staying with us and for taking the trouble to write a review: we appreciate it. Hope the rest of your journey was wonderful, and that we see you again at the Robberg. Best wishes from all of us.

our first impression when we walked through the doors of the Robberg was - wow!
the place is very cosy, yet elegant, and a beautiful beautiful view of the ocean is seen from the lobby.
next we were offered some coffee and a rest from our trip, which was very welcoming, and made us feel right at home!
our room was huge, the breakfast was fantastic, the staff very helpful and willing to help.
two thubms up!

this holiday destination is out of this world and our room was lovely, very clean and and staff could not help us more. from here we made many different trips, sky diving, swimming with seals, walking with elephants and bungy jumping! so we made the best of the time here. also local restaurants were great.

Room Tip: they are all very good

The first stop on our travels of the Garden Route. Very helpful staff and we met the owners whilst staying there who gave us some tips for Cape Town. Lovely location with a wonderful beach across the road. Staff organised a taxi for us one night and we paid the driver when he returned us to The Robberg.

It was great to be able to meet you and chat about your journey - hope the Cape Town leg was wonderful. We thought of you when we arrived in town. Thanks again for staying with us, and especially for taking the trouble to post a review. We appreciate it enormously. Hope we'll see you again one day in our little piece of paradise. Til then, all the very best from all of us at the Robberg.

Chantal and the team at this little haven offer excellent service. There is always tea or sherry on hand, together with pastries or some other nibble. Breakfast was excellent and fresh. A great buffet with a nice range of freshly cooked options. The honesty bar in the main house is well stocked and a second on the roof terrace of a neighbouring part of the property is a lovely place for a sundowner. Our room at the front had wonderful views over Plettenburg Bay, where we saw a pod of dolphins playing nearby and the whales that find their way there in the South African winter. The property is made up a just a handful of purpose built luxury villas with rooms in each. Modern, comfortable and attentive. We will happily return. Thank you to Cape Tours who included this in our first, and wonderful, visit to South Africa.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in Beachy Head Villa, overlooking the bay

Whales, dolphins, great breakfasts, great service, spectacular sundowners and views: you couldn't have described the Robberg experience better! Thank you and thank you to Cape Tours for matching us up. It's great to hear you enjoyed your first visit to our beautiful country so much: we love this place, and love sharing it with our guests. Hope your next trip includes another sundowner on the terrace! Til then, best wishes from the Baileys and the Robberg team.

The hotel was delicate with lovely white and light colours and a beautiful seaview in the main area of the hotel. The hotel was lovely, but the construction was not as good, as the water in the shower did not drain properly due to the slope of the piping. The service was good, but maybe a bit over the top.

We were only able to stay in Plett one night but were very happy indeed to be here. An idyllic location right on Robberg Beach with beautiful and outrageously spacious rooms. A generous and excellent breakfast after a morning run/swim on the beach. A truly wonderful visit and we'll be back!

Room Tip: Sea views available but quieter rooms, set back were fantastic and huge!

Thanks for staying with us - sorry it was only a one night stay, but that's just more reason to come back again, no? Your morning run and swim sounds perfect: glad you were able to experience some of the magic of the beach setting. Looking forward to that return visit :). All the best to you from the Baileys and the Robberg team.
