Outsdanding hotel located on the beach side with very nice rooms. The hotel staff is very professionnal, especially Julia. The Chef Silvio and the manager John are very friendly, and so are all the persons we had to deal with there. I strongly recommend this hotel for private or bussiness visit to Maputo.

We could not enjoy the bar and sea facing facilities due to over crowds from non-residents, and it was too loud with easy access for day visitors and bar guests entering the residents and rooms areas.

All round great hotel folks! Great location, great service, good value, the WiFi works well and the food is world class! I had the pleasure of having a beer with the chef, eccentric to say the least....but he has such passion for the business and that translates in the service and quality of the food.
