From the time that we arrived at The Plettenberg, it was evident that our stay was going to be exceptional. The security staff in the street were first to welcome us: Lucky had a list of all the expected guests!
We arrived early and our suite was not ready [understandably] to check-in and our luggage was gladly kept in storage. When we did arrive everything was ready and our suite was everything that we had expected.
The suite is super luxury and the view our the sea is spectacular! We spotted around thirty dolphins in the bay.
Suite 51 is the suite to request because it is on the ground level with easy access to the rim pool and the conservatory.
The service is outstanding: every member of The Plettenberg makes you very welcome...everyone greets and they know what they're about - to make their guests stay, as pleasant as possible.
The amenities are great and we were treated to a bottle of bubbly that we enjoyed whilst watching the dolphins.
Definitely the place to stay at in Plettenberg!
