We recently stayed in the Southern Right suite at Mosselberg and were greeted with one of the best views from a hotel room we've ever had the pleasure of. The room was large, airy, well appointed and very comfortable. Furthermore, the service we received was very warm and helpful but not overbearing. We had great time, and would whole-heartedly recommend Mosselberg to others.

Fantastic welcome and stay at this beautiful boutique hotel. The room was very well decorated with very comfortable bed and all the accessories you would expect in such a well thought out accommodation. The central pool is lovely and there are lovely rooms off it that you can sit and read or escape for a while. Breakfast was very good and cooked to order. Staff were all lovely. Very peaceful. Wi-Fi strong. Would definitely recommend staying here and we will when next in the area.

If you're looking for low key, non-glitzy excellence, Mosselberg on Grotto Beach is for you. Great location, spacious accommodation, outstanding staff and excellent breakfast with dinner available on request.

One of the most outstanding hotels that I have ever stayed. Beautiful, architecturally designed building and pool area that take your breath away. The rooms are huge and so relaxing with large shutters and the most stunning views and attention to detail. Fantastic staff too. Basically a top notch place.

Mosselberg on Grotto Beach is probably my favorite place on earth. I love every single detail about the hotel. This was my second time visiting, this time with my boyfriend. It is small, but not too small, very familiar, extremely kind and attentive service, our room was huge and the views of the ocean are beyond beautiful. We have booked a private cooking in the evening and have been served a delicious 3 course vegan meal. Our waiter and cook have both been amazing, we cannot thank you enough. Hope to see you again very soon.
