“Happy family shall return”


From first contact to leaving we just want to say thanks to all the wonderful smiles and real fast service to all our needs.

Kids and wife very happy and I'm impressed with the facilities and quality of the food . But the staff specifically the booking lady and the housekeeping supervisor(head) who made sure we had no issues.

Baie Dankie Nê!

“Amazing experience in the Cultural Part of Mossel Bay”


What an incredible place to stay, from value for money, excellent service, brilliant accommodation, amazing staff.

The food was out of this world on EVERY level, the boma dinner was very entertaining and all the local cuisine was displayed with no shortage of anything!!! The rooms have such tasteful decor and the beds are extremely comfortable.

The location is safe and very friendly people around!

“Fantastic surprise”


We were so pleasantly surprised by this well kept secret in Mossel Bay.

Excellent service, such friendly helpful staff, beautifully clean with everything a person could need.

Thank you, we will definitely be staying with you again.

“Well refurbished rooms”


While the hotel looks a bit older from the outside, the rooms including bathrooms have been nicely refurbished and modernized with a beautiful wide view on the ocean and some (poorer) neighbourhoods.

The area of the hotel is not the safest, but the hotel seems well protected and secure, including the parking. The center of Mossel Bay is 5 minutes by car. The breakfast is good, as is the wi-fi connection.

“Great value for money”


I have to admit that when we arrived we were a little concerned, as the hotel is situated in a former economically challenged part of the city. However, the security measures and wonderfully welcoming staff made these concerns go away.

The receptionist Kim even kindly left us fresh flowers and chilled champagne in the room after she had learned we were on our honeymoon. We were very touched!

Also, the hotel is being renovated, so the rooms are very clean and were recently refurbished. It is not a five star hotel, but a great value for money just 10 minutes away from the city center. We had a wonderful time.

“What a find!”


A gem of a hotel, with super modern rooms, ours had a lovely kitchenette.

They are in the process of upgrading all of the rooms. Kim at the front desk was very personable and charming. Although it's just outside the downtown, thus does not matter as its a very very short drive to anything.

Our room was spacey, very clean, and was lacking nothing. Don't miss out!

En route to Mossel bay - not only was I tired and drained but extremely hungry. We booked our crew in at the Portao Diaz Hotel for a full week!

My experience was amazing, I got the best treatment from the staff, catering, room service and people who were full of life!

Management were always on par, I felt as if it's a Home Away from Home..

I couldn't have asked for a better place of living, it has made me more aware of what to expect in Mossel Bay. People are not only much more friendlier but a close-knit group that look after one another and they always have smiles, they greet and make you feel so comfortable!

I wish Hotel Portao Diaz big success! Keep up the good work! And I hope to visit everyone soon!

Thank you for having Me, and my colleagues!
