Without a doubt one of the best hotels I have been to. Stunning decor, exquisite rooms. The staff are attentive and very friendly. They make a point of getting to know your name and remembering it throughout your visit. The restaurant is stunning and the food is fresh and stylish. We will definitely be going back.

We were fortunate to be given a garden room which meant that we had our own private patio with a gate which led onto the lawns surrounding the swimming pool. It was glorious. The staff and management were outstanding, nothing was too much trouble for them. We will be returning to them in 2021.

The location and views here are really amazing! The pools and overall the whole property are just great, you can't beat the views and ambiance. Service was outstanding, we were greeted with rooibos tea and we enjoyed it so much, they made us more...and more upon request. A nice touch! This is definitely the type of place that wants to make you feel take care of and offers that luxury feel. Highly recommend, don't miss it!!! And be sure to walk down to the beach too.

A lovely hotel, 5 star without a doubt. A tip, try to get a room in the "annex", ABSOLUTELY SUPERB. I have stayed in hotel rooms smaller than the bathroom here. I often read about staff and how good they are at hotels, but the Plettenberg Staff go above and beyond from the moment that you check in. We had lunch one day sat at the next table to Gary Player, if it's good enough for one of the best ever golfers, it's good enough for me. :-) You can book here with confidence.

From the moment of our arrival, the staff couldn't have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful. While we checked in we were given warm towels and iced tea, which was very welcome after our long drive. This level of service continued throughout our stay.
