This is a lovely hotel in the beach - i have stayed here numerous times. The breakfast buffet is ample but could do with a little more attention to vegan meals. They do have soy milk now which is great. Rooms r pleasant size and very comfortable. Wifi is not often reliable

The rooms&service are not acording the price you pay. I had a bad experience since they charge me in my credit card 200 € extra (they said it was a bank mistake) It took me nearly a month to get the money back, 20 phone calls, and no less emails. A nightmare.

There was a problem with our take-away breakfast when we left early morning but the manager acted quickly to sort things out. The pity is that one...

Staff was friendly, even the cleaning ladies. I have stayed at many places in Mozambique but nothing like this. Professional staff and clean rooms. I would recommend anyone to stay there, whether you going on holiday or a business trip.

Well located on the beach front in Maputo and adequately appointed facilities. Staff are efficient if not overly friendly. If this all seems a touch, well, bland, you would be correct.
