The Diaz Hotel is located only 50m from the high-water mark and offers spectacular ocean views from every window and balcony. The Diaz Hotel was named in honour of the famed Portuguese navigator, Bartolomeu Dias, who landed in Mossel Bay in 1488. Themed on the long and vivid history of the area, we offers guests a comfortable home away from home, with luxurious suites, surrounded by the charm of heritage, with attentive and considerate service throughout your stay.

Those who prefer a somewhat faster ride, can take in a superb high-speed view of the ocean whilst zooming down the seaside super-tube.
Play a round on the putt-putt course.

Area Information:
Mossel Bay is a bustling holiday town and port, set on the sunwashed slopes of Cape St Blaize overlooking the expansive bay, against the blueblack backdrop of the Outeniqua Mountains.

Mossel Bay lies halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, close to the towns of Swellendam, Outdshoorn, Plettenberg Bay and Knysna on the Garden Route and is synonymous with the Mossgas project, where offshore gas fields are mined for gas that is then converted into petroleum.

Despite this obvious industrial leaning, Mossel Bay has a tradition of unhurried hospitality and there is sufficient natural beauty in the town and its surrounds to make a stopover essential. Mossel Bay features in the Guiness Book of Records as having the mildest all-year climate in the world, second only to Hawaii. Add to this the long stretch of beaches, the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, a championship golf course or two and Mossel Bay becomes an ideal retreat for both summer and winter.

Mossel Bay has a significant history and there are a number of historic houses worth a visit, including about 200 stone homes built a century ago by Cornish stonemasons. She received her present name in 1601 when the Dutch navigator, Paulus van Caerden found a collection of mussel shells in a cave at the headland of Cape St Blaize although Mossel Bay was ‘discovered’ as far back as 1488, when Dias first encountered the ancient Khoi-San people upon stepping ashore.

Mossel Bay is still famous for its mussels and oysters and some of the largest catches of tunny and black marlin are made on this part of the coast. Tunnel Cave is a 60-metre passageway through the headland of Cape St Blaize, which emerges on stretch of wild coast where the beaches are notorious for their variety of sea shells.

Of real interest is the fact the very first Post Office in South Africa was at Mossel Bay in 1500, when a man named Pedro de Ataide left a letter in a shoe under a milkwood tree. Today the ancient Post Office is a national monument and mail is still sorted here.

Amongst the surfing fraternity, Mossel Bay is up there on the list with Jeffreys Bay and Port Elizabeth and Outer Pool is probably Mossel Bay’s most famous wave. Water sports are enormously popular and whale and seal watching and scuba diving a way of life.

Mossel Bay with its wide beaches for safe swimming and the awesome cliffs of Cape St Blaize’s southern shores, with the ever-watchful Outeniqua Mountains in the background provides a welcome and a worthwhile stopover on the Garden Route.

Our rooms are key card operated, non-smoking and are cleaned daily. Please note that not all rooms are equipped with air-conditioning. Wake-up calls can be arranged with reception.

Diaz was a great hotel friendly staff and wonderful location. The breakfast was good but the indoor restaurant lacked in service and quality of steak was poor

Ek en my vrou het ons twintigste huweliksherdenking in die luukse wittebrood suite gevier. Amanda en haar personeel het dit so aangenaam gemaak, van die reël vir die pragtige blomme, die vonkelwyn tot elke vriendelike glimlag. Twaalf uit tien vir julle. Julle sien ons beslis weer!

We booked via a special and was worried about the level of this 3 star hotel but we received excellent value for money. Their local restaurant Art Cafe provided great food and value for money. Great place to stay and very friendly staff. We will go back anytime.

Love the general look. The reception area is stunning. Our room was definitely newly done ... stunning. We were on the 6th floor. Great view. We went for an under roof swim in the hot pool next door one day. We loved it and recommend it. Value for money! See you again soon.

Diaz Beach Hotel & Resort situated above the beach in Mossel Bay, is a hotel with stunning views from all rooms with nice balconies over looking town on right, and Outeniqua mountains on left. Rooms are clean nicely sized and bathroom has shower and bath - no step into bath type shower. Good value for money. Definitely my place of choice when in the area. Staff friendly too. Secure parking.
Superb. 5 out of 5
