I read all of the reviews prior to making my reservation, and wanted to stay here given the other options in Mossel Bay. This hotel is located in a very residential area, where most of the other homes are owned by part-year residents. I stayed here in May 2012 (just last week!), so it was off-season and the solitude was great. The honeymoon suite offers a great view and the room is very comfortable. While the internet service was horrible, I was on vacation so actually did not care that I was not able to connect to the internet, though the lack of quality internet may concern some travelers. The breakfast is more than adequate; since the hotel is located very close to lots of restaurant it was easy to go out for lunch and dinner, and then bring left-overs back to the room. I would definitely stay here again if visiting Mossel Bay. I am from the U.S. and was not familiar with the term "self-catering", so I did not know that the hotel does not have a restaurant, but this did not bother me. Overall, it was a great 2-night stay and a wonderful way to conclude a 2-week vacation in South Africa.

Room Tip: The web site has photos os each room, so it is easy to select exactly the room you want.

Thank you for your kind review. We are glad that our connectivity problems did not bother you too much. The internet in South Africa is not nearly as good quality and speed as it is in the US. This is something we are working on. Soon we will have good connections in every room.
We hope to see you again, have a great day and thank you again for leaving a review.

We stayed here during our recent SA trip. It's not always easy to find such fabulous accommodation when you're traveling w a child (18 month old son) so we were very pleased. They were able to provide a cot in our (very spacious ) room and highchair for mealtimes. The breakfasts were delicious, and the guest house has a lovely lounge area we were able to make use of in the evenings after the baby had gone to sleep. Right on the beach which our toddler loved too!

This is one of the best places we stayed at during our recent trip to SA. I had made an error on reservation dates. Called to explain and was immediatly acommadated. We were upgraded to the Honeymoon suite which was just beautiful (suite 5). The breakfast was delicious. My daughter has suite 9 which was a two bedroom with one bath and just beautiful. Don't miss this place if going to Mossel Bay.. I will surely return next year...

Room Tip: All the suites are beautiful

Amazing location & view, great room, friendly staff. One of the best places we stayed in during our visit to SA. Delicious breakfast. This is a place I would definitely return, and spend a week or more.

My family and I thorough enjoyed our stay at African Oceans. My wife and I had suite #5, which has an unobstructed view of the beach and the ocean. The suites are all spacious and well appointed, and the breakfasts delicious. No question about it - this is THE place to stay in Mossel Bay. Only caution I would add it that it is not walking distance to restaurants, so having your own transport is essential.
