So when I saw the name of this place Dolphin’s Playground, my curiosity was awake! After we’d stayed one night, we were sorry we didn’t booked for more nights. The really friendly hostes Pam (what a doll) was very nice to chat with, we were curious about the place and the history of it. The veranda is HUGE for sunbathing! And a nice detail of the breakfast on the veranda is that you don’t have to wonder where to sit because Pam places little flags of your country on each table, HOW CUTE!!! Pam thanks again, love Kimo & Linda.

This was an unexpected delight - from the warm and gracious welcome by owner/host Pam, to the very comfortable accommodation, to the "wall-to-wall" views of surely the most beautiful bay in all the world. The layout suited our family group of 6 adults perfectly - the 3 en-suite rooms opened up onto that deck. Adequate lighting and warnings were provided for the scheduled nationwide eletricity load-shedding; the rooms were serviced daily with a fresh supply of biscuits and beverages; each room had a mini-fridge to store personal stuff and we had a daily choice of English or German-style breakfasts with a fruit platter/cereals/yoghurt included. Pam was attentive but not intrusive with loads of useful references. The site was perfect for a breakaway: a 2-minute walk to Robberg Beach which also meant we were all lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves at night. It is also perfectly named: every day we were treated to the sight of dolphins leaping, surfing and swimming, against the backdrop of lilac, sunlit mountains.

We stayed here for one night during our recent stay in South Africa. This B&B is located in close proximity to the ocean and you actually see the ocean and hear the waves from the big terrace - which I loved. The landlady was off when we stayed there, but her stand-in was just as lovely. We felt welcome from the first minute and enjoyed our short stay. Our rooms were nice, well-furbished and clean with a nice amenity of coffee, tea and biscuits. They also have refrigerators if you want to store any food or enjoy a cold drink from the honesty bar. Breakfast was great as well, with lots of variety and even Nutella for the Germans who can't go on vacation without ;-)

Arrival: Very welcoming. The hostess was warm and informative and invited us with a glass of wine. We got useful information about restaurants nearby. We loved Enricos! Room: Clean with everything you need. Big bathroom. Private fridge outside the room with minibar. Plenty of towels. Environment: Beutiful view from the tree deck outside. We saw dolphins in the morning! Beach: Great beach nearby with walking distance. Breakfast: Classic African breakfast. Both hot and cold. Nothing special. Average. Good to know: Your car will be parked on the driveway. No gates.

We stayed 4 nights here in the middle of October. Pam made us feel very welcomed throughout, often with a cup of tea. Pam knew so much about the area and helped us with tips for walks, activities and restaurants (which proved great) even booking them for us when needed. We absolutely loved the outside decking area …it had great views of the beach (we did see some dolphins) and what a place to have breakfast. The room was comfy and clean with a huge bathroom. There was easy access to the nice lounge and decking from the room. Parking was easy on the drive of the house. It’s a short drive in to town and a 10 minute drive to Robberg. We used it as a base for Knysna as well as Plettenburg Bay activities; we found all were easy to reach
