The location is stunning. But that is Plet. The house has been done up beautifully and the owners have chosen their designers well. The food was excellent and staff accommodating: but seemed a bit stressed. They choose their staff well. I would particularly like to compliment the manager who did an excellent job. HOWEVER. On the Friday night they have...

We were down for a wedding last weekend and stayed in one of the pods for three nights. We had a brilliant stay, the location is incredible, the staff friendly, rooms comfortable and great food and drinks. We were actually so bleak to have to leave on Monday. Will definitely be back.

Just went for couple of drinks and food. Staff were fantastic and food and drinks were tops! Excellent spot and would thoroughly recommend. They got pretty busy for a while and apologised for a wait for one of our rounds but really didn't even wait long so was all good. You should go check it out.

Found this place quite by mistake as my wife and I strolled along central beach in Plettenburg. What a find, just a couple of days before we return home. Worth a visit, food, wine very competitively priced, excellent value with the quality and friendliness of service many should seek to emulate. Will be back when next we visit

We had a wonderful stay at The Bangalow. Best burgers ever, beautiful setting right on the beach. The decor is amazing!!! The beds are comfy. Its very clean. Excellent staff. The food and drink prices are very reasonable. Loved sitting on the deck having breakfast watching dolphins swim past. We will definately go back.

Awesome food with the most beautiful views in Plett. Situated only a few paces from the beach. This is def the trendiest hotel in Plettenberg Bay. Arrive as a guest and leave as a friend. The rooms are stylish and very comfortable.
