We made a short stop in Mossel Bay on our way along the Garden Route. I don't really know what people do in Mossel Bay as the town seemed… well, dead. Anyhow, the Aquamarine Guest House was a real treat! I really liked the sea inspired turquoise interior and the starfish details. We got a nice room with a glass door where we could go right out to the pool area. Big nice tub and shower in the bathroom. Very nice staff and lovely breakfast. I rarely complain, and even more seldom watch TV, but for some reason I turned the TV on when I was in Mossel Bay. It showed only static (I'm sure the staff could have helped me out, but I was too lazy to go get them - and the reception was unmanned during the night). Also, we left the guesthouse in a hurry and actually left all our travel documents in the room. One would think the staff would have called to let us know, but I still haven't heard from them.
Ok, now I'm just trying not to be so damn positive in all of my reviews… The thing is - I really liked the Aquamarine, and if you happen to go to Mossel Bay, this is a good place to stay! And the maintenance person/gardener cleaned our entire car while we had breakfast - perfect service.
