    The rooms are tiny and have many problems with cleanliness. If you are at all fastidious do not book into this hotel. If you are prepared to accept a rural African environment then you won't have a problem. Overall the hotel is a little run down and the kitchen is very slow. It is very expensive if you compare it to a South African standard. Personally I would not swim in the sea in this area. There are no tourist points of interest in the local area.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Great food gem in a new developing area.

    The food was just amazing here! Even though this was truly the only dining option in Catambe, Maputo, MZ, no dish disappointed us. Worth a 2 night stay, but no more unless you want to just completely relax and do nothing. Not much to do but to walk the bay. The staff is very kind with good customer service. My only con of the stay would be that the sewer smell creeps in from the bathroom. And don't take the ferry. The bridge seemed like it should be opened soon. The locals who "man" the ferry on Catambe side are rude and a nuisance -not only to foreigners, but the local merchants. They demand money to take "your belongings" off the ferry that had to be placed in the front. Put your foot down, grab your items and walk away - if you have to take the ferry.

    Chalets on the beach are beautiful.

    Nice older place. Shows some age, but kept very tidy. Great staff.

    God udsigt

    Udmærket hotel. Personalet var søde og hjælpsomme. Værelserne var meget slidte og toilettet løb.... Vi havde en dejlig udsigt over Maputo.

    Mysigt hotell med fin trädgård med pool. Fantastisk service från den trevliga personalen. God mat i restaurangen. Hotellet ligger på stranden en bit från andra hotell och restauranger. Erbjuder bl.a. guidade turer i Maputo, vilket rekommenderas.
