I've stayed ten days in Girassol Indy Hotel and I was disappointed with the overall stay. The positive aspects will be the location and outside gardens of the complex which are well kept. Negativelly, I didn't liked the rooms and the cleaning. The fact that the rooms have a door directly to the outside doesn't help. For instance, I had... More

A very nice hotel, calm and clean. Beautiful territory. However, wifi is quite expensive, which is disappointing. Quite far from the center, but taxis are available 24/7 and the surrounding areas are nice.

This was real value for money. It may not look like something but it is conveniently situated in town basic yet tastefully decorated and clean. The breakfast was nice and had a wide variety of dishes. I really enjoyed it and will come back if I can....

Positive aspects: great location, great care with mosquitos (malaria), recreation area, spa and gym well and newly equiped. Negative aspects: It was by far my worst experience in a Hotel in my life. I was staying with my wife and the hot water shower worked only in the first bath. I took a cold shower several times, even after conplains... More

I stayed at the Girassol Indy hotel in the executive chalets. Very nice hotel and ground. Only complaint is the shower head was totally blocked and no water pressure, so morning showers were irritating. Good location if you have own transport, but lots of taxi's outside hotel to take you to restaurants.

The Indy Congress Hotel is probably the best conference venue in Maputo. The hotel is unusual - spread out over a few acres of landscapes gardens. Room are functional as are the public areas. Good pool, spa and gym.

This hotel have nice and modern rooms. The service needs to improve and some of the staff need training to increase their performance. The food is great, specially the sea food. The gym fees are extremelly expensive for the small space they have. The pool is nice and have good size. Besides this weak points, we had a great time... More

Stayed here for business on a colleagues recommendation. More suitable for a family of holiday makers than for business. It claims for stars, but feels more like three!! The rooms are functional and simple but the beds are hard and uncomfortable. The bathroom was ridiculously small and poorly designed...you have to enter the bath from the back!!! My TV was... More

Firstly for the price a traveller should be entitled to far better everything! The food and service in the main lounge is really shocking. One can wait ages for the meal to arrive and more often than not when it does it more closely resembles hostel rather than hotel food. The accommodation section (This hotel is laid out more in...

Good restaurant service and SPA. I traveled with my family (husband and sons) and we had a good time. Unfortunately my son had an eye irritation and ear pain because of the swiming pool. And when the doors are open in the afternoon, a lot of mosquitos come into the rooms. Besides this, the service on the restaurant was very... More
