Diaz Hotel & Resort
Ranked #6 of 9 Hotels in Mossel Bay
Reviewed November 28, 2012

The 4 star rating is reflecting the level of cleanliness, well-maintained property that the Diaz Strand is. It is also on a very nice, soft sand beach. The outdoor pool looks SOO nice, but it was cool and windy when we were there. This is not a 5 star luxurious hotel but it is EXCELLENT in all aspects.
The beds were comfortable. The pillows were fluffy. All rooms have a balcony facing the Indian Ocean, with a wall of glass doors so you can see it. The modern bathroom had both a tub and a glassed-in shower. There was good lighting. The 2 elevators were large and fast. The breakfast buffets were nicely laid out.
Our group stayed here 3 nights while touring in the area.

To start of with, email communication took days. Very slow response. Arrival and check in was fine, but no bottle of sparkling in room as promised per email. View from room was excellent! Dinner was nice enough, except for VERY slow service, despite only about 5 tables in the resturant, and errors with our order.

I stayed here whilst on a sporting trip to Mossel Bay and must say this was an unexpected bonus. I expected a somewhat run down sea side hotel , but was pleasantly surprised. For the amount you pay, it is a great deal- friendly staff , superb sea views ( all rooms I think) and nicely appointed . Great breakfast and al a carte restaurant. It is right on the beach and you can see all the activities and access the beach easily. Super pool and right next to a water slide park. Will appeal to families but no reason all ages should not enjoy its facilities.

Room Tip: All rooms are sea view

Lovely hotel with good service, clean linen and amenities plenty! The most wonderful view onto the clear blue sea right infront of you! All the rooms have this magnificent 180 degrees of sea view with dancing dolphins and majestic whales entertaining us the whole weekend! A long white beach to stroll or run for a fresh early morning wake up exercise! Lovely reastaurant , deck and pool right on the beach! This should be a fantastic holiday for the whole family! Also a spa available and quite close to the Mall for shopping! We had a wonderful stay during our conference, too little time to explore all the fantastic offers! Would have loved to swim in this rock free beach, but too little time and too cold weather!! Will go again!!

Room Tip: All rooms have fantastic view, but the higher the better view wise!

When a visit to the beach is uppermost in the mind, one often finds you select a place with wonderful reviews and once you arrive, the beach is quite a distance away and not a safe place for swimming. This is the case on the Southern Coast of South Africa, but Mossel Bay has the open beaches where playing in the water and having a good time in the waves is a treat for all ages. The Hotel offers very well equiped rooms, with all balconies seafacing.
We found the staff to be pleasant and visited this resort during the month of March 2012.
The inclusive breakfast deal was really good, it caters for all appetites. We are a mature couple and found all amenities very convenient For folks with young children there is a great waterworld experience.

Room Tip: All rooms are seafacing and if you do not have a problem with heights, the 10th floor was really gre...
