I feel like I stayed in a different hotel to your reviewers - but I didn't, it was the Southern Sun Maputo. We had arranged for the hotel shuttle to collect us from the airport and although the driver was there, he had no knowledge of picking us up but did take us to the hotel. We later found out...

Very good value for money! The breakfast buffet is amazing, very rich, lots of choices for every taste.

The rooms are clean and comfy, furnished with ACs, all necessary...

I travel all over and stay in decent hotels, but the Tsogo Sun Maputo is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The breakfast is outstanding!!. We had lunch only once, sadly not dinner and that was absolutely tasteful. Rooms are amazing. Will be back.
