Renovated rooms, helpful staff from the bottom up, nothing too much trouble, everyone pools together to make our stay as more than enjoyable! Service prompt, valet parking, could teach many other hotels a thing or two about customer service! They got the WOW factor award! I last stayed here about 17 years ago but visit Plett at least three times...

After a twenty year break our whole family , kids and grandkids went again to Beacon Isle again, and it is better than ever. Maybe not the 5/6 star luxury of some resorts in Mauritius but the friendliness and willingness of the staff , facilities and the public beach and ocean make it fit for purpose, more relaxing and certainly...

We absolutely love the Beacon Island. There are constant activities for both adults and kids and you just cannot find a better location in Plett. The rooms are very comfortable and impeccably clean. We are already planning our next trip back.

Still one of the best places for a beach holiday with friendly staff, excellent facilities and a coast full of outdoor adventure opportunities. The new Crags wine route is a 'must visit'... the sea lounge at the hotel gives you the opportunity to watch the sea / sea life on non sunny, but on sunny days the beach and pool...

What a wonderful and beautiful resort. Stayed for a total of 2 weeks and I found everything about it amazing! Great facilities, the indoor heated pool, games room and gym.

Always surprised at how we are able to find a spot and soak in the setting at the Island Diner. Pizzas a hit with the kids. They did stop walk in diners between Xmas and NY, but no problems later on. We always use this one as a last night out before we hit the road back home.
