As pointed out in other reviews, the only true positive about this hotel is its spectacular location right on Diaz beach. Unfortunately that is not enough.The place is simply run down, sad and tired. It is very obvious that maintenance is not being done as it is supposed to, and that management does not seem to care much. The neglect... More

We stayed for a night before continuing home. We were greeted by a friendly porter who helped us to our room. The guy at the reception was also friendly and helpfull. This is a lovely hotel with a lot of potential. Unfortunately most of the amneties was closed because the hotel -according to staff - are being sold to new... More

Stayed here 2 nights as part of a tour and was the worst of the 9 hotels we stayed in. The indoor pool and Jacuzzi were closed. Bathroom needed a fan or something similar installing as funny smell from bathroom. Some of the staff just seemed as though they couldn't be bothered, even wearing outdoor coats to serve you at...

We've been to the hotel twice before and always had a great holiday. So this year we decided to stay for a night before heading to Plett. The first sign that something was wrong was there wasn't a porter and my husband had to carry everything himself - not cool for a 4 star hotel (R1000 a night). The service... More

We spent 4 days on the 10th Floor of the Diaz Strand Hotel. The views from the room are incredibly beautiful and the sound of the rushing waves makes the stay there a memorable one. The hotel itself was extremely empty so there was no atmosphere - on the first day we were told there were only 7 people but... More

Not the best hotel on the tour we with Saga, but had a wonderful sea view room over looking the Indian Ocean, saw the sun rise and set, very spectacular. Can swim in the warm waters of the Indian ocean. Staff not as attentive at this hotel. Food was good and the restaurant faced the sea Big problems with the... More

Good place to unwind with views to die for. If I wanted to be petty then I could complain but I was extremely happy with the good value for money. The endless beach walks were so welcome after the buffet breakfast. Rooms very clean and serviced like clockwork.

The Diaz Strand Hotel is located right on the beach. The rooms all have beautiful sea views. The rooms were clean with comfortable beds and linen. The only disappointment was the small tv. Breakfast was delicious with a large variety of food. The views from the breakfast room windows are stunning. You can walk to Hartenbos along the beach, good... More

Absolutely terrible experience. The only enjoyable aspect was the view. The hotel had parking which was suppose to be exclusively used by the residents, yet was physically open to the public. Since it is the festive season and given the hotels proximity to the beach, the parking was used by the general public, so parking was almost impossible. The parking... More
