Aqua Marina Guest House
Ranked #13 of 55 Mossel Bay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 29, 2011

We really enjoyed our stay at the Aqua Marina Guesthouse. We had a very warm welcome by Noel and later by Aldia. Both are so lovely and we wished to stay longer but had to continue our trip. No breakfast during our trip was so great as in Mossel Bay and we also had a fantastic view over Mossel Bay during having our breakfast. Thank you very much for everything. We will choose this guesthouse again.

Having stayed at Aqua Marina for a few days in 2009 we did not consider any other location for our base to visit the Garden Route this year. We stayed for 8 days this time and did not regret our choice for a minute. A beautiful well-appointed room. Ample breakfasts with fresh local produce. Great view across the bay - whale watching on some days!. Noel and Alida provided the perfect total pakage. When we go back to SA again this is the first booking on our list.

My wife and I stayed here for one night only during our tour along the garden route - we had a very warm welcome from Noel & Alida and we enjoyed their company very much. Alida made us a hearty breakfast and nothing was too much trouble. We ate at a local restaurant recommended by Noel where we had a superb meal and then went back to the guesthouse and enjoyed the rest of the evening in conversation with the owners. Very well done and I would certainly recommend a stay here.

We stayed here for one night as part of a trip along the Graden Route. Previous reviews have really said it all - everything was first class - welcome, accomodation and superb breakfast. We ate at a local restaurant with a pick-up service, which made a pleasant change from driving. Noel and Alida are a lovely couple and great team, and we sat late into the night with Noel reviewing some of the finer points of South African wine! We were short of time and didn't see too much of Mossel Bay but it is a very convenient place to stop on a touring holiday, and the Aqua Marina is quite definitely the place to stay!

This place is amazing. The house is great, the interiors are amazing, the view is awesome and above all, the hosts are fantastic. Breakfast was gigantic. Alida believes that breakfast should be eaten like a king and stands by her belief in the way she feeds you. I would highly recommend you to stop looking anymore and book this place immediately. Oh also, the beds are fantastic.

We were in South Africa for a wedding at a hotel which won 'Best Hotel in the World' whilst we were there. But this B&B comes a very close second!!!

The room was beautiful and clean, with lots of 5* touches like a variety of different towels and toiletries. The food was out of this world - Alida cooks great breakfasts (leave plenty of room for them!) and great hospitality in general. Noel was very welcoming and shared a beer with us on the terrace whilst watching the sun go down. We only had one night there on route but did not want to leave. We would recommend this place to anyone visiting Mossel Bay beyond any doubt.

Thanks for a wonderful stay both, Lucy & Mark

Unfortunately we only stayed for 1 night at the Aqua Maring guest house in Mossel Bay but could have quite easily stayed for longer! the guest house is lovely and the owners made us very welcome and very extremely friendly.

The rooms were gorgeous with a lovely sea view. The breakfast was the best, I have never had a fruit salad as good with over 10 different fruits made fresh. This then followed with a cooked breakfast freshly tailor made for individual likes and dislikes.

It was a short walk to a few restaurants and bars which was a bit disappointing but a nice stop over on our way to Plettenberg Bay
