“Plettenburg Bay”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

Plettenburg bay, what a lovely town to visit. Its beautiful, warm and friendly. My wwarm visit was completed by a stay in Beacon Island Resort. The place is built is built right in the middle of the ocean,magnificent sea views and mountains. Though I was not with my kids but I noticed that the resort would have been heaven for them. Great place for the entire family with excellent service.

The position of and views from the hotel are superb.
The restaurant food was ok but the staff were exceptionally willing to please.
The rooms especially the bathroom are small and the lack of air conditioning is a huge disadvantage.
We booked through time share which was very reasonably priced and for the cost we could not have got better. However this may not apply to the daily rack rate.
Overall we had a wonderfully relaxing stay in a one of the most exquisite settings in South Africa.

Room Tip: The rooms facing Robberg are cooler. If possible book a sea facing suite.

The dining experience is not up to past standards.
The facility, Management and Staff EXCELL AT CUSTOMER SERVICE.
Parking can be a bind. The SHUTTLE SEVICE NEEDS TO BE MORE READILY "ACTIVE"
The LOCATION is SUPERB. Lots to explore

All the staff are very cheerful welcoming you on arrival and always willing to help during the stay.
The rooms are very comfortable with views over the beach. The food is varied and staff willing to vary the menu to give you what you wish if they have it. They do not charge for room service and no corkage in the restaurant.
Lots of places to go and dine at with beautiful views

If you have a look at my previous review, REAL HOLIDAY, you will see we enjoyed an awesome week at The Beacon Isle Hotel in January 2014. What can I say, I just had to get back...all be it just for a weekend, a mere month later!
Another magical stay, this time on the 6th floor at the front of the hotel. With this in mind, no matter which room, equally fantastic.
Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: First choice, any corner, I stayed in 212 which has a balcony, although all views are just spectacul...
