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

Courteous pleasant receptionists greet you on arrival at Hotel Villa das Mangas; The overall ambiance of the hotel, with its swimming pool, outdoor dining tables and gardens is a pleasant one. However, I have to agree with other reviews that the rooms are rather small; Although a small room usually does not bother me, I did feel rather cramped, as... More

I stayed for 5 nights in Villa das Mangas and will do my utmost best to never stay there again. The only acceptable thing was breakfast. My room was on the other side of the street, in one of the high appartment buildings where the hotel has apparently placed 6 additional rooms (numbers 30 - 35). The security arrangements in... More

I stayed at this hotel during a business trip, and for this purpose it is an acceptable place to stay. However, if you are looking for a place to go on holidays this is not the best choice! Although the hotel is a 4 star, it doesn´t meet the european standards! It lacks organization, the breakfast is very poor and... More
