We stayed for 5 nights, and totally enjoyed ourselves. Kamillia and Ziggy were great, attentive and very helpful. The local staff was well trained. We stayed at the traditional room, which was a little smaller than we expected, but the surrounding ambience far made up for it as we could sit and lounge in the garden/ pool/ bar areas. We... More

We are a couple travelling around africa for a month. All we can say about cinco portas are good things. Managers really care for their guests and help in every single task such as activities, restaurantes, transportation. The place is very nice, with very cute pool by the sea. The food is good and they do their best despite sometimes... More

Often our evaluation of the places we visit are a matter of expectations fulfilled or not. We expected from Ibo's Cinco Portas just a clean room in a calm place, and it was widely exceeded. Our room was one of the small ones, but impeccably clean and well attended, in front of the swimming pool and the sea, ... and... More

My partner and I stayed at Cinco Portas for three nights in mid August. We had booked the colonial room, located in the obly part of the property that dates back to Portuguese times. The room still preserves some of its former allure, with a marble bathroom and a stylish bed. The ony drawback about the room is that it... More

We strongly recommend it. Rooms are very clean and the service is excellent. Food is good as well. You can arrange several activities once there, such as whales watching (if you are lucky), walk to quirimba island and others. Kamila and Ziggy will make sure that you have a great experience there. The location is very good as it is... More

I stayed on Ibo a week and enjoyed the food at Cino Portas so much that I chose to eat there every night. Great care is taken to valorize locally sourced fresh fish, with a mix of recipes from Mozambique and elsewhere. And after a bit of traveling around the country you’ll soon find that that this good food is... More

A lovely relaxing place to stay on Ibo. Staff could not be more helpful and the owner was a wonderful host while we were there. We ate dinner there every night with the kids and the food was delicious and different each time and great value for money. They were also accommodating to the children and their fussy food requirements... More

The views, the pool, the rooms and the general layout are delightful. You walk in from a dusty main street and can't imagine what a lovely view onto the Ocean you'll get. The rooms are fine, although could benefit if some thought were put into where guests should hang/fold their clothes (just a couple hooks on a wall, no shelves... More
