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.

We came for a night and were lucky to be able to extend our stay to 3 nights. This is a perfect beach front property located virtually on the beach with easy access to all the attractions of Plettenberg Bay. The room was extremely comfortably furnished with great sea views.

Pam is a really friendly and hearty host with a tremendous knowledge of good walking trails in Tsitsikamma or Robberg Island. You don't need a guide, she knows it all. The guesthouse is almost at the beach and from the terrace you have a fantastic view over the bay and to Robberg Island. The rooms are spacious. The furniture is...

We were very impressed with our accommodation at the Dolphins Playground Beachfront B&B in Plettenberg Bay, Eastern Cape, South Africa. Located near the beach, our ocean view suite was tastefully and comfortably furnished, the large beautiful patio offered panoramic ocean views, and the hot and cold breakfast choices were a traveller’s delight. Pam, our hostess and her staff provided excellent...

We made a reservation at the Dolphin's Playground because it is ideally located to do the Robberg hikings. But when we arrived it was immediately obvious that this is not the only reason to book a stay at this place. The host was very friendly and helpful and we felt very welcome immediately. Nothing we asked for was too much,...

We had a short but lovely stay at Dolphin's Playground. The Dolphin Suite was small but perfect for our needs.
