I just had lunch in the restaurant, didn't stay in the Hotel. This was a Saturday and we were the only persons in the restaurant. We had to wait for an hour(!) before coming our meals. The garlic bread was from a loaf of bread(first time), the croutons seemed to be there for more than 10 years. The view is... More

I stayed there a week and loved it. Inhanbane is a perfect city to be based in to visit the area ( Barra, Tofo) if you do not want to be stuck on a beach. The location of the hotel is fantastic with all the rooms looking out on the lagoon and the sea. Sunrises and sunsets are amazing and... More

This is a great little hotel in a fantastic location and with wonderful architecture (José Forjaz Architects). The rooms are very beautiful, comfortable, clean and well decorated, with a nice balcony facing the bay. Waking up facing the beautiful bay is a great bonus! The pool is fantastic, in a beautiful setting. It is not definitely a 5 * hotel,... More

I booked and paid for my stay 3 months through safarinow.com in advance but when I arrived they informed me that they gave my room away. We had been in contact just 2 weeks before as I required some information yet they failed to tell me that they were closing the hotel to a convention during the period I was... More

Lured by the amazing pictures and the great reviews I was really happy to book this hotel as the last stop on our holiday. I booked it for 11 nights (initially!), and had one of the suites. Firstly "kerb appeal" is not good... Trip Advisor say it's a 4*, they rate themselves as 5*. I'd say Trip advisor is closer... More

We didn't actually stay here but we were dropped off by our Dhow crew and easily welcomed onto the premises on the night they were having a complimentary wine tasting that included hors d'oeurves to die for! They even provided us with live music and outdoor seating by candle light. I cannot say enough about this place, an accidental stop... More

We were lucky to visit this beautiful, stylish hotel on the advice from the managers at Bara Beach club where we were staying. The view and decor is stunning and a pool you just want to dive into. We look forward to coming back and having cocktails and lunch around the pool

My wife and i spent 3 nights at Casa do Capitao. Lovely, newly renovated hotel. Lovely rooms with a superb view of the lagoon. Friendly staff. We only had breakfast in the morning which was great with a good variety. Hotel needs to offer transport to local beaches and interact with guests more in terms of "whats on offer in... More

I didn't stay at this hotel but called in for lunch. My party and I sat under a huge parasol on the terrace adjacent to the pool and enjoyed a delicious meal of fresh fish and salad, followed by coconut pudding accompanied by flambeed pineapple. Not cheap (around US$100 for four people for two courses each and soft drinks /... More

This hotel has everything going for it. Situated in the quiet section of Inhambane town, (Inhambane Province), it dreamily rests on the banks of the tidal estuary or the "Bay of Inhambane". The position is prime. The hotel building is fresh and modern. Here sadly the platitudes must end. Over the last 2 years this hotel has steadily gone backwards.... More
