My wife and I stayed over at LaGoa en route from Vilankulo to South Africa on the recommendation of a friend.

The surroundings are absolutely beautiful and the cottages are inventively built. Leonardo is a warm and friendly manager.

That said, LaGoa is not for everyone.

First of all, the cottages are often half open so not only is privacy limited but you're exposed to nature. If you happen to be at LaGoa alone, the sounds of the night can be a bit scary if you're not used to it (especially when you realize that there's no-one around for at least a few hundred meters).

You need to bring your own food to LaGoa; they have a kitchen where you can prepare your food as well as a gas-powered fridge. Getting to LaGoa from Quissico is a schlep due to the 7km sandy road so you're advised to arrive with everything you need. Beer and cola can be bought from the camp.

The road to LaGoa can be negotiated with a normal high-clearance vehicle (e.g. Toyota Corolla) IF you have some experience driving on sandy surfaces but you could certainly get stuck. A vehicle with diff lock or a 4x4 will is recommended.

Although LaGoa is certainly cleverly built and quite cosy in places, I was disappointed with the cleanliness (the sheets felt unwashed), holes in mosquito nets and general disrepair of the place. If the owner can fix these issues, LaGoa will be an excellent place for adventurous, outdoorsy types.

Lovely, very quite place with calm water. We stoped there to spend night in camp on our way back to Maputo from Vilankulo. We were traveling with two small kids (1 1/2 and 7 years) and they enjoyed very much playing in lake, mixed with sea.

I paid 1700 MZN for one night (a person) to "enjoy" a horrific polyester sheets.
Unique lighting for the room and the bathroom were two kerosene lamps (they had a problem with the electrical installation of solar panels). Do kerosene at an eco-lodge?
The mosquito net for the bed, very nice but useless in the paradise of mosquitoes. I woke up with over 40 bites..
.Better look for an other lodge.....

The booking the night was totally painless, the manager was extremely helpful and friendly. We had arranged a late check because we were on our way north and needed a bed for the night.
It should be noted that Lagoa Eco village is NOT a lodge but merely a very basic group of grass huts.
The beding, mosquito nets were old and had holes. There is no shower facilities just a bucket. The toilet is outside the hut.
Not a place I will be revisiting!!!

I ended up there without knowing hardly anything about the place . But it turned out to be spectacular. I am not an ecofriendly tourist. The place overviews a lake, and if you go for a short walk you’ll end up in a beach with no one (nice swell for surfing). Having both lake and sea the place is double that what any other place can offer.
The stay was very pleasant, Victor and Felipe, made feel like some else from the eco lodge’s staff. We had very interesting conversations in macua (They are excellent teachers for local dialects).

Its the most relaxing place I stayed in Mozambique

It you have no wheels book in advance so that someone can go and pick you, because is far away from town.

Room Tip: It you have no wheels book in advance so that someone can go and pick you, because is far away from town.
