We had a lovely stay, except for one night when our neighbour had his Television full blast @ 1am in the morning. Will recommend it for families, beautiful place and an awesome private beach. Will definitely be back.

The pizza at the restaurant is AMAZING - get the dunes pizza - you will not regret it! The only issue I had with the room was that the safe did not work. Everything else was good. Room was very large and airy and the bed, pillows and bedding were comfortable.

We were suitably impressed with the all-round service and location of the Dunes Resort. Well kept facilities and lovely, simple rooms made it a very enjoyable stay. We loved being able to lie at the pool with a drink on hand, thanks to the friendly waitering staff!

The Dunes Hotel is in a very good location, only a short walk to a beautiful clean white sandy beach. There is no life saver on that beach, so we went to the main Plettenberg Bay beach for swimming. The Hotel is in mint condition with groomed gardens around all units, the Hotel rooms are very spacious, modern clean bathrooms...

The overall experience was very good, especially the location of the resort, but certain aspects of the buildings itself require substantial maintenance and perhaps an upgrade. The breakfast was adequate, but could provide more of a variety for guest who are staying for a longer period.

I have in my entire life never experienced such utmost incompetence. I called earlier this afternoon, reserved a room with a lady at reception. She called me back and assured me there is a room with aircon as well as a camping cot for hire for my 1-year old twins at an additional R150, and breakfast the next morning. We...

We rented at The Dunes. It is equivalent to about 2 - 3 star quality. Very disappointing. The units aren't bad but the overall condition low. There are storage areas in Mrs near the pool that are poor. Full of excess couches, fridges etc. Just enter the main door at the resort reception and look at the filthy frame. The...

It is unusual for me to write an unfavorable review but I do not recommend this hotel. I booked this hotel during peak season so they were likely busier than usual. That being said, they were not prompt with communications. I had to send them numerous emails to get a response confirming my booking. In general, I found the service...
