“Superb place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2013

Aqua Marina really is a great guesthouse. Alida and Noel are brilliant hosts and Alida's breakfast - well words are just not enough! Spotlessly clean, well appointed bedrooms with lovely bathrooms, and fabulous view across Mossel Bay from the balcony. Quite a steep walk down into the town/waterfront but really quick by car. Incredible value for money and if we go back to Mossel Bay, we wouldnt consider staying anywhere else. Superb!

After 2 weeks of cruising around South Africa staying exclusively at B&B's and small hotels - This was by far the best stay.

The rooms and beds were big and very clean. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Every amenity has been taken care of (even chocolate). The view is amazing. Alida is very welcoming and warm with the visitors - it was difficult to leave after only one night. Would definitely return again to Mossel Bay and stay at the Aqua Marina!

I'm hard to impress... But I was blown away by this b&b. Beautiful location and very nicely appointed rooms. Every comfort you need has been addressed. Alida is a super sweet host and you can tell she loves what she does. Always smiling! She cooks up a wonderful breakfast, which you get to eat overlooking the gorgeous bay. Absolutely a 5 star b&b!

Why to stay in Mosel bay? They have great beaches, white shark cage diving, golf courses good fishing, good range of restaurants, scuba diving and the main reason Aqua Marina Guest house.
I can go on and on of how wonderfull they made our stay there.
The ownsers are the friendliest couple i have encountered. The rooms are superb, The breakfasts are like taken out of a movie.
Why not have three diffrent types of shampoo? biscuits, tea and fresh milk in the room, sewing kits, laundry service And a view to DIE for.
in the afternoon you can just sit on the deck and look at it for hours talking untill you need to ruch before the restaurants closes ;)
We want to go back to ZA just to stay here again!

If I should say something negative about Aqua Marina it is that since the owners are som nice, you have a tendency to end up a bit late to everything else.

I still don't know why one should stop in Mossel Bay in the first place but if one does, the perfect place to do so is the Aquamarin Guest House. Beautiful rooms (room #1 is the clear winner!) and a stunning view over the beach are the rewards. And if one plans on dining out 'downtown' she/he faces a healthy digestive uphill walk back to the guesthouse. Good breakfast and friendly service are included.

Room Tip: room # 1 !!!

After a three week tour of SA and stopping at 13 different overnight accommodation spots I can honestly say that from a woman's point of view Alida & Noel (Alida probably though) had thought of everything you could possibly need, everything from flannels to a hair dryer, bath sheets & even chocolate, they not only recommended some amazing restaurants but called through & booked for us too, Noel has some very funny golf stories & Alida lays on a fantastic breakfast. Thanks to them both for making us so welcome, a definite 5* b&b, oh, and nice views from the rooms too.

My husband and stayed a night at Aqua Marina Guest House on our drive from Cape Town down toward Port Elizabeth. It was a perfect overnight rest stop during our long road trip. Noel and Alida are very responsive with email and reservations. The Guest House is a great safe location overlooking the beautiful bay. Both our room and and ensuite bathroom had great views of the bay. To top it off, Alida is a great artistic chef. She made a yummy fruit and nutella crepe, followed by a tasty hot breakfast. Again, a great view of the bay in the dining room during breakfast too! Great place at a great value!
