I had the chance to spend a night in this lovely B&B, very little time to enjoy a wonderful view on the bay with great sunset from the window of my super bedroom.
Everything has been perfect, starting from the location, the space available for all the guests, the extreme cleanliness as well all those details that make a difference when travelling starting from the heather (the outside temperature was "crispy") to the little treats before going to bed.
Pam has been a great host and at the sumptuous breakfast I had the pleasant surprise to see the flag of my country on the table as warm welcome.
A place that deserve more than a night !!!!

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.

Had a great relaxing stay in this well run B&B, so close to Robberg beach which is perfect for walking, running and swimming. The lovely owner is so hospitable, and has thought of everything which you might need for a comfortable stay and also gave helpful ideas on what to do in Plett. We particularly enjoyed being offered a pot of tea on our return from outings, which we enjoyed on the big deck in front of the 3 guestrooms. The deck has a view of the sea and spaces for relaxing, and it's where breakfast is served in fair weather, sometimes there are dolphins to watch in the bay. Highly recommended!

We have been coming to Plett for decades and for the last 10 years we have stayed in Pam Meara's Dolphin's Playground. We come all the way from Canada and we love it so much here we stayed for 7 weeks this time. Pam is a charming hostess and her staff are always friendly and efficient. Pam has extensive knowledge of all the attractions and restaurants in the Plett area, and is always ready with a helping hand. On top of all that, the view of the bay from the rooms and deck is gorgeous, with frequent dolphin sightings...and even a whale from time to time. The beach and safe swimming are just 50m away. If you come, we strongly advise staying for at least a few days.

We stayed one night with this BnB Playground. It’s a beautiful place. Pam the owner is very nice and informative. She introduced good restaurants and even called to make reservations for our dinner. Breakfast was fantastic on the deck with ocean view and sunrise. We loved the stay. Lovely stay . Highly recommended to stay here.

I'd stay in this B & B just for the view. We stayed for 4 days/3 nights and had breakfast every morning in the terrace which gives you a fantastic view of the ocean. We saw a pod of dolphins our first morning here. It's also only a stone throw away from Robberg beach.
The room we had was clean and cozy with a comfortable bed. Kudos to Phanicka and Patience for providing us a wonderful breakfast each day and the fantastic service they provided us on our entire stay.

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.
