We stayed with Pam at the dolphin's playground back in 2012 and it will forever leave us with happy memories. The rooms are warm, clean and inviting, the breakfast is delicious, but most of all we were struck by Pam's hospitality. She might be the nicest host we have ever crossed paths with and are forever grateful for her hiking...

We stayed overnight in the Whale Room. We were met by the owner and gracious host, Pam. She went out of her way to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. The room was well appointed and very clean. There is attention to detail and a lot of thought has been put in, to make the guest very comfortable. Our breakfast...

Unfortunately we were only able to stay one night but would highly recommend Dolphins' Playground for a short or long stay. The situation overlooking the beach is perfect and Pam is a very gracious and helpful host. We stayed in the Seahorse suite which was spacious and very well fitted out. The breakfast was beautifully presented and tasty. All that...

We stayed in Dolphins Playground some twelve years ago and loved it so decided to visit again. What a great decision!

We spent a four night stay at Dolphins Playground and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Pam is the most considerate and accommodating host who really does go the extra mile. The house is in a quite part of Plettenberg Bay but close to the very best part of Robberg beach. After a delicious cooked breakfast in the morning we would...
