Initially I thought the reviews had been a bit harsh: the staff were very friendly and the reception and bar staff competent, the breakfast was fine, and the wifi worked very well. Yes the room were not great, but they were average enough to not complain (though don't count on the TV for entertainment - that said, in Maputo, why... More

This supposedly five star Hotel is NOT up to scratch. Let’s start at the entrance. Empty water bottles in the flower beds. A Doorman that does not greet you. Breakfast served is cold, no bacon, fried eggs or omelettes are available. The passage smells dusty, there are stains every where on the carpets. The Hotel rooms needs serious attention. The... More

Staff are not very helpful in trying to make the stay easier and don't even try organise cheaper taxis. The hotel definitely needs a revamp soon to stay with the... More

Average hotel which claims to be a 5 Star, average rooms, blankets stank, room service was pathetic, breakfast buffet was terrible. I would recommend anyone who plans to visit here have second thoughts and book another place instead.

I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights because we had a large conference in their facilities. The hotel is extremely bare and bland, it has no character whatsoever. Formally, it may have all the features of a 5*-Hotel, but everything is of the minimum. Start with the sausages on the breakfast buffet (they look like the cheapest, offputting sausages... More
