I spent one night here after traveling a great deal from Johannesburg to Maputo, and before spending 6 weeks at a guesthouse in Maputo. After traveling, I was excited about the great presentation of the hotel from the outside and the warm welcome. I was in the Singapore Suite which had a comfortable bed that was decorated with flowers. The... More

Spent two nights at this cozy city hotel. Lovely location, walking distance to many eating places. The rooms are of average size with basics. Didn't eat at the hotel given the proximity to lots of restaurants.

There was a big trade fair in Maputo. Rooms were fully booked at the better hotels. I was glad for a place to unpack my bag. Restaurant on street is nice. Good wine. Lots of champagne. Nice fish. Staff are primarily non-English speaking. Challenging for me. Rooms were strange. First, I was given a key. A metal key. The old... More

Everything was a terrible experience. Never ever stayed in such a hotel and to think it was $180 per double B&B. The reception was inefficient or they pretended not to understand. The service the rooms everything was not up to standard.

I stayed in this "guest house" for a night only, on my travellings within Mozambique. However, the service is really bad, at least at the reception. We were promised early breakfast because we needed to travel early, we were promised and then nothing was ready. The reception guy did not even bother to arrange with anything with the kitchen, as...

In October 2013 my colleague made me a booking at this hotel for 3900 Mts/room/night. When asking for an e-mail confirmation, the hotel said there is no need, the price is this. When I arrived I was told my room is #42. Fine. At the check-out they tried to invoice me 5900 Mts! When I said this was not the... More

I'm sorry to say that this was my worst hotel experience ever. The hotel is actually nice and clean, the breakfast is ok and the staff of the restaurant are tremendously friendly and helpful. But the staff at the reception is a disaster. It took us two hours of arguing before we got our room, as the lady at the... More

Even if Maputo is at the seaside, it does not explain why the rooms of Villa das Mangas have such a smell of moisture. And the breakfast is one of the poorest we had in maputo. It is a pity, because the appearance and the location of the hotel, on one of the main avenues would deserve better, especailly given... More

The hotel has improved since I was last there in 2011. The new owners are really trying hard but are defeated by shoddy workmanship, strange decor ideas and very variable meals BUT the staff are fantastic. A bit pricey for what you get but still worth a giggle if you are not overly anxious!

We stayed here a total of 3 nights on 2 occasions as part of a Habitat for Humanity trip. After the reading the reviews I was worried about staying here since the comments and concern made by the management after poor reviews on Trip Advisor never seemed to be fulfilled as demonstrated in future reviews. We were pleasantly surprised. We... More
