We made a 1 night stop at Mossel Bay to go shark cage diving ( sadly saw none) and were so pleased we stayed with Noel and Alida. What lovely people! We weren't enamoured with Mossel Bay itself but they made us feel very at home. Alida was kind, friendly and welcoming right from the beginning. We sat on their... More

Stayed two nights. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. We could not fault anything. Everything was provided, even toothpaste. Breakfasts were fantastic and the pancakes with fresh fruit were delicious. Although a little expensive, we would definitely stay with Noel and Alida again and recommend Aqua Marina.Very good hosts.

Noel and Alida were wonderful hosts and made us feel at home. Indeed that's exactly what it was. We had a gorgeous room overlooking the bay with first class toiletries in the spacious bathroom. The breakfasts were superb ; Alisa said that if one stayed there a fortnight there would be a different breakfast every day! They were very helpful... More

From the minute we arrived, Noel and Alida were nothing short of incredible! On arriving we were shown to our spectacular room with incredible bay view, and between the brochures and helpful advice, we knew exactly what there was to do and where in Mossel Bay from day one. We stayed for seven nights and every morning were treated to... More

The owners were so friendly and helpful and made us feel right at home. The room had a balcony overlooking the bay and a large bathroom. A little bit up the hill from the beach but an easy walk. We were also kindly lent beach towels after checking out to use for the day. Highly recommended!

The hotel is a part of the house, where the owners live. So I have a chance to feel like being home, sitting together in the kitchen, having nice talks, enjoying the sea view of Mossel bay. The room was perfect, the breakfast was just great - we got ask about our wishes and got everything we wanted, and the... More

We stayed at Aqua Marina Guest House for several nights. On the first night we arrived late due to some issues during our drive from Cape Town. I thought that this might be a problem for our host, however we arrived to find that out of concern for us she had put heated beanbags into our beds to make sure... More

Beautiful view of the harbour and removed from all the noise. Alida and Noel are both very accommodating and I left, feeling like part of the family. Breakfast was something to look forward to every morning. Would definitely stay here again on my next visit to Mossel Bay.

Noel and Alida are a lovely couple, nice to talk to and full of advice. They go out of their way to provide that little extra care, which shows in the details everywhere, from the way the towels are presented, the soaps and shampoos are provided, the bottles of water in the fridge, to the chocolate on your pillow.

Trip Advisor didn't let us down here! Noel and Alida are the perfect hosts making you feel so welcome from the moment you arrive. Alida brought us fresh fruit juices to drink on the balcony, and showed us our lovely room. We were staying in the Sailfish room, with a balcony and panoramic view of the harbour and the bay....
