4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

Stayed there with my wife and 7 year old for 2 nights. Very nice location right on the beachy road, sea view room as promised . All the rooms opening up the front deck where breakfast is served if the weather is good. Nice living room with TV and Wi-Fi. The rooms are well maintained and the host Pam is an excellent and hospitable lady

One suggestion would be to improve on the breakfast spread and quality a bit. The mushrooms on the side were not sauted properly and cereal options can be increased. Also a couple of more variety of breads could be offered. Cheese was missing

But overall loved our stay there and would recomment this place hands down

Room Tip: I think Dolphin rooms are bigger and a full window opening one the sea

Pam is a charming and wonderful host who goes out of her way to accommodate each of her guest's demands and requirements. We had a great time exploring Plett from there and loved our 2 nights. Amazing views over the entire bay and close to everything.
Breakfast is served on the terrace if the weather permits which is an added bonus. Rooms are clean, spacious and bright.
Plettenburg is a great place to spend some days and relax.

We came for a night and were lucky to be able to extend our stay to 3 nights.
This is a perfect beach front property located virtually on the beach with easy access to all the attractions of Plettenberg Bay.
The room was extremely comfortably furnished with great sea views.
The spacious common deck area also has great views and is ideal for meeting other visitors.
The breakfasts, with the nice touch of country of origin table flags, were perfect.
The staff were very friendly and efficient and it was a bonus that the caretaker was a qualified birding guide

Pam is a really friendly and hearty host with a tremendous knowledge of good walking trails in Tsitsikamma or Robberg Island. You don't need a guide, she knows it all. The guesthouse is almost at the beach and from the terrace you have a fantastic view over the bay and to Robberg Island. The rooms are spacious. The furniture is not state of the art but it is very clean and comfortable.

We were very impressed with our accommodation at the Dolphins Playground Beachfront B&B in Plettenberg Bay, Eastern Cape, South Africa. Located near the beach, our ocean view suite was tastefully and comfortably furnished, the large beautiful patio offered panoramic ocean views, and the hot and cold breakfast choices were a traveller’s delight. Pam, our hostess and her staff provided excellent services, and the next time we are in Plettenberg Bay we will definitely stay at the Dolphin’s Playground B&B.

I can only but reinforce and concur with all of the positive comments made by others in their reviews.

Lovely friendly welcome from host Pam who was helpful throughout our stay. Very clean and comfy room. Great view, much enjoyed during breakfast. Good location for touring with a short walk to the beach where we did not swim but got bashed by the waves - all good fun.

Minor down side in that internet connection was not good in the room but hey on holiday not checking emails.

Highly recommend to others considering a stay at Plett and would have no reservations about returning.
