From the moment i made my booking with Amanda via email in June till the time we checked in we were treated like royalty. The receptionist on duty was very friendly and knowledgeable, She booked our cabs and all our activities during our week long stay. Our room was clean. airy and well stocked with shampoos and clean towels every day and the chambermaids always had a smile if you see them. They have a great restaurant on the premises called La med and we had great breakfasts and 3 dinners there during our stay.... a must visit for great seafood. Will be back in January again

Room Tip: request a room with a balcony for smoking

I don't have time to write this review, first we were given the wrong room, then the room we got had an air on that didn't work only to be told there are only two air cons in the whole hotel! The pic on the Internet of the room next to my confirmation has an air con in???the carpets were dirty, the toilet disgusting looked like someone had diaorea when u lifted the seat and hair on the floor / the windowsill looked like it had never been cleaned and the balcony gutter was full of hair and cigarette butts! The carpets dirty too

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. I can only apologise for your experience at our property. The cleanliness of the rooms is of utmost importance to us and we are busy implementing more staff training to avoid situations like this in future. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Booked the honeymoon suite because everything else seemed to be booked in Plett for the Christmas/Summer holidays. The room was spacious and the balcony had a nice view of the bay. Staff were friendly and helpful.
However, first impressions were a bit mixed as although the room was spacious and the view of the bay was nice the bathroom was not what I would describe as "sumptuously appointed" (their own description on their website) and the floor was a bit grubby. There was no ceiling fan or even a sign that there ever had been one and the safe did not work. I will say that we did not bring this up with them directly as we were only there for a short stay. I did have to ask them for some clean glasses on the second day as the ones left by housekeeping had lip marks on them.
The honeymoon suite is directly above the outdoor dining area (which although the restaurant closes at 9 there was still noise from the clearing up and then it all started again early for the breakfast shift). The room is also on Main Street which is very busy with people and traffic late into the night. This meant that it was quite noisy and we didn't get great sleep.
The bed was comfortable and the staff were nice so perhaps we would have had a better experience in another room away from the main road. Otherwise would not recommend the Honeymoon Suite unless you're not bothered by noise. I feel we paid more than it was worth because it was peak season.

Don't go buy their pics on the websites.. You don't have see facing room at all.Secondly they claim to be 3 star category of hotel but i will give just 1 star.. I stayed 27 and 28 dec'15 with my family... My experience was very bad.. Reception will tell you to drink the water from washroom basin as they don't provide even a bottle of water In the room a complementary... No breakfast included ... Bathrooms was having stink... We have asked extra blanket, it never came.. We waited for half an hour and slept... Layer of rust in kettle.... So many issues... So better to stay some where else....
