I want to make special mention of Abraham, Andrew, Antoinette and Lindiwe for their exceptional service. Also Colin and Chris in the restaurant are amazing. These people are assets to the BI and make visiting a pleasure. The entertainment team were amazing with my kids. All round an incredible 10 days!

This is a superb venue. A truly magnificent beach to either stroll along or walk with exercise in mind; approximately 10 km there and back. The hotel staff are very friendly and extremely helpful; they are particularly helpful with your Wi-Fi needs. The restaurant was excellent; extremely good value and very accommodating to your needs.

Best kept secret in South Africa. A week is not enough at the Beacon Isle. So many things to do and places to eat. You dont even need a car you can walk every were you want or use transport from hotel. Robberg Nature Reserve my absolute best.

Our week at Beacon Island could not have been better. The weather, the food and the attentive staff made it a very special break. Rooms are luxurious, facilities excellent and sea views spectacular. More than adequate exciting activities closely situated and you could shop till you drop in quaint little boutiques or antique shops. This will be our "go-to family"...

This is the perfect base for exploring the...

We enjoyed every aspect of our week at this resort and were able to fully recharge our batteries in an idyllic setting where the level of low key entertainment and staff were perfect. One small aspect which needs attention by management is for small luxuries such as toasters and microwave ovens, electric irons/ironing boards to be included in the rooms....
