                Simple chalet accommodation”

                Formosa Bay is strategically located. Supermarkets are just 5 mins drive away and Robberg Nature Reserve is just 20 mins drive away. The resort is equipped with swimming pool and other recreational facilities but it was mainly unused by guests. Guest were also able to do laundry using the self-pay washing machines and dryers in the resort. The room itself was spacious and pleasant. However, i found the shower design impractical, leading to puddling of water in the toilet. The complimentary breakfast provided at the cafe/bakery was awesome. The staff were also generally helpful. Wifi connection at my room was crap though.

                We stayed for 2 nights in a studio apartment overlooking the 2nd of the sites 2 pools. Our room included sofa/living area, beds with ample wardrobe space, dining table, kitchen and luxurious bathroom. Very tasty breakfast in the on-site French style restaurant/café. We enjoyed the extra facilities which the site offers by using the fitness centre, playing table tennis and relaxing by/in the pool. It was a shame it was so windy otherwise I would have liked to have played tennis on the resorts outdoor floodlit court. We visited in October and it was nice that there weren't many children/families there. Overall, would definitely stay here again.

                Garden Route Road Trip”

                We stayed at Formosa for 4 nights while road tripping the Garden Route. The place was gorgeous and staff very accommodating and friendly. Onsite swimming pools and laundromat came in very handy during our trip! We did find the service and quality of dishes of the on premises restaurant lacking. The location is ideal for exploring Plettenberg Bay and surrounding areas :) Due to the current drought in the area we were asked to use our bath water for the toilet cistern which we were happy to fully support but they only provide a big bucket to put the water in which made it challenging to get the water out of the bath into the bucket and subsequently the cistern which ensued in a watery mess in the bathroom every time you use the bathroom.

                Pretty good”

                This place is bascially on the main road as you are coming into Plettenberg Bay. It is a resort which included mini golf, trampoline, games room, swimming pool and a few more things to have fun with so you don't have to leave the resort. Breakfast was included and it was very basic, 3 options, if you wanted to change anything it was an extra charge which I thought was silly. If I don't want to eat it just let me pay the difference instead of cooking it and it going to waste, oh well. The room was very open and spacious and had all the basics to have a very comfortable stay, I really liked the room. It was very quiet also which was nice. Overall not a bad stay. Thanks =)

                The rooms and the facilities are really nice. The food is just ok, and the breakfast coupons that they give you has a limit of just 40 Rand (which is ridiculous). Location is right on the N2. Staff are ok, we were a couple and asked them to give us a room with a queen bed, but they gave us twin beds, and when we requested them to join the beds, they said that they dont have any staff to do it!!

                The rooms/apartment and resort facilities

                First of all - it is now 5 days since we left the resort and we still have not received our deposit of R500 back. Secondly the reception asked me to provide my cedit card and made an imprint on the credit card machine with the amount R1657.50 already filled in. They claim that should they not get paid by Agoda then this amount will be deducted from my account. I found this very unusual and expressed my dissatisfaction but to no avail. They said if I refuse to sign this payment slip they will refuse me entry to the resort. Please advise me what has happened to my deposit and the credit card payment slip. The R500 was already deducted from my account. I very frustrated by this style of management.

                Das Zimmer war sehr schön und sauber. Die Rezeptionistin war sehr unfreundlich. Hinzu kam, das das Frühstück inbegriffen war. Wir bekamen dafür einen Voucher für das dazugehörige Restaurant. Der Voucher war über 40 Rand ausgestellt. Ein Cappuccino kostete dort schon 24 Rand, man kann sich vorstellen was man für ein Frühstück bekommt. Das Frühstück an sich war sehr lecker und die Bedienung freundlich. Es geht nicht darum, dass man etwas Geld drauf bezahlt, aber ich finde wenn man Übernachtung mit Frühstück bucht. Sollte es mit inbegriffen sein. Ich finde das grenzt schon fast an Betrug.
