If ever you in the Plettenberg bay area, then this is the place to go to. Awesome service from the reception (JP & Louise) to the restaurant staff (Busi and Latoya) to even the housekeeping staff. 5 Stars isn't enough for the service we received and if you need your hair done then ask for Sharon at the "Hair Affair Studio". My wife and I would most definitely come back.

My experience staying at Formosa Bay Resort was not a good one. The pictures on the internet looked like paradise, but on arrival my family and I were disappointed to see that reality did not live up to the expectations of the photos we saw online... the facilities and interactive areas are pretty small, as is the living area (so not good during winter time when you can't be outside much). There was construction on the premises during our stay - which they did inform us about beforehand, so I won't complain about the noise - but we had to share the bathroom facilities with the construction workers (which they left really dirty) and they were directly next to the pool area, so every time us girls wanted to get some sun, we had an audience... perhaps my family and I just visited at the wrong time, and some people might not feel the same... it may be great for someone else. But just a heads up that it might not be as big or extravagant as the pictures may portray... we can't see ourselves going back.

The rooms look better than most in its grading category. The new look kitchen gives the rooms an upmarket feel. Overall, Formosa Bay Resort is not a bad place to visit.

The one star rating on my posting is totally incorrect as the rating system only allowed me one tap and promptly vanished. Have been to Formosa a few times now. It has an excellent & very neat environment with friendly assistance at all times, great to spend a relaxed time here.

Had a very nice stay for a weekend at Formosa Bay. The rooms were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. The biggest bonus for us was all the activities to keep us busy such as putt putt, tennis and a gym, as well as a stunning swimming pool. Perfect for a weekend away.
