La Vista was a disappointment compared to the other accommodation we had on the garden route. There was nothing inherently wrong but it lacked panache and many touches for the price. We stayed in Room 2 with a sea view. Out on the patio there was a lack of comfortable chairs. The umbrella was not set up and there was no stand for it. There was a hard wooden chaise with no cushions. There were 2 basic chairs only. Very disappointing. The bedroom was fine with a comfortable bed. The bathroom ha da nice shower but the whole room is tired and in need of a refresh. Breakfast was downstairs with great views. It was basic and not outstanding and my omelet was inedible. There is a small parking area. They are affected by load shedding and we came home one evening in complete blackness. They ahd not installed any emergency lighting which is not hard to do. we found or way back to the room using my phone flashlight. The room did not have an emergency light which it should have. It just showed a lack of caring for guests. Apparently they are due to get solar but I call it as it happened to me. I would not return and you can do better especially for the price.

Avoid this hotel. They double booked and only informed that morning of stay there was an issue. Offered no apology. Did book me into another hotel in area but when turned up they said the booking was not confirmed and let room go to someone else. Luckily found a room in area. How La Vista can say the room was double booked when they confirmed months previously is unacceptable and should be considered when booking accommodation in the area.

We booked 2 nights (2 & 3 August) for a birthday celebration. Booking was confirmed but to our horror, when we arrived we were told by a worker that the lodge was closed, owner not reachable. Deeply disappointed. Holiday totally ruined! Don’t go there

Lovely views from the top deck, also where breakfast is served, and very friendly staff on arrival and at breakfast, great small pool on the lower deck Would be rated Excellent but a couple of small issues were initially looked at then effectively forgotten about. Disappointing. I would avoid the Garden View room as it is the main route in for nearly everyone

La Vista is a charming and cozy bed and breakfast that I highly recommend. The location is fantastic, with breathtaking views of the bay. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated, and I particularly appreciated the personal touch and hospitality of the owner. The staff at La Vista is highly attentive, going above and beyond to ensure that guests feel welcome and taken care of. Breakfast was delicious every morning and offered a good selection of options. I also found the garden and pool area very inviting and relaxing. The location is ideal for trips to nearby beaches and attractions in Plettenberg Bay. Overall, my stay at La Vista was wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing and comfortable vacation in South Africa.

We had a very nice welcome at La Vista Lodge, the lodge is also very well located. We were disappointed by the room. Our room was very large, but it was located in the main buildings basement and did feel a bit moisty. There were tiny bugs too which was due to the moist. I would have preferred a smaller room, up higher in the building than this huge room that didn't feel healthy. The bathroom was also quite dirty (the blinds weren't cleaned in a while).

Amazing view, great location - a short drive to town and the beaches -, great service, excellent breakfast ! The Gral Manager, Adè and his stuff go the extra mile to accommodate all needs. Our room, Suite 7, was very nice and with a terrace hard to find anywhere. Please go stay there! Just make sure to contact them directly and stay in touch - WhatsApp works great with them for any needs.

Despite prepayment and confirmation for three nights in September, the suite was not available! With the promise of Shanti that we would be offered an alternative with a sea view in a very good hotel, we moved to the mentioned hotel (Robberg Beach Lodge). Unfortunately there was no room with sea view available. According to the internet it was correspondingly cheaper. I therefore requested the price difference from La Vista Lodge. Shanti tried to get rid of our claim with all sorts of arguments. Only on our departure day was the manager Ade Alao present. He apologized and understood our arguments. In order to pay us the money in cash, however, he had to get in touch with the owner, Axel Will. He personally accused me on the phone that we had booked a suite that had already been booked... This was the height of cheek. It was only thanks to the manager Ade Alao that we got our money.

Response from Axel Will, Owner at La Vista Lodge
Responded 23 Nov 2022
Dear friendly Swiss Almost-Guest hgraber55 I can understand your anger over not having been able to stay at La Vista Lodge. Unfortunately my employee Shanté made a human error when your suite was booked already. I myself personally made sure that Adé’s request to even cover your costs for “no-seaview” at your alternative Accommodation was met. You even stayed at a beach front property as compensation for our employee’s mistake. I of course was angry at the human error and the unneccesity to deal with this issue that could have been avoided easily and your bold demand to get compensated for the view difference to la vista lodge while you moved directly to the beach. Beach view at front Beach Accommodation is rare - even in Plett (!) It is too easy to rate a business with 1 star out of 5 nowad - Which you couldn’t even experienced. Thank you for your feedback and your 1 star rating of La Vista Lodge while not staying with us . I can live with 1 star and take this review personally - I am not here to be nice to people or to fulfill their wildest wishes. I am here to make the planet more ecofriendly (with our food forest and growing of food at the hotel and conserving wild animals). Our staff at the lodge has dealt with every request made by you and runs the lodge very professionally. In case you enquire again, we both should make sure it’s not already booked :) Grüße in die Schweiz

La Vista indeed - absolutely incredible views over Plettenberg Bay! Big rooms with a huge bathroom that included a great shower with two heads, a rarity in South Africa for us. Great staff too - we were warmly greeted by a gentleman, I believe his names was Amos, who was happy to help with everything from luggage to drinks to a fantastic dinner spot recommendation. Great spot.
