I cannot really image a better resort than Mucumbli. Everything here is really perfect. The bungalows are very comfortable with a beautiful african touch. Awakening in mucumbli is fantastic........great view,sound of the ocean and twitters of multicoloured little birds...simply unforgettable. The restaurant is excellent. You can choose local or Italian dishes; both are very good (the best spaghetti I've ever... More

The individual bungalows offer some of the best views on the islands. Spending time on our secluded veranda watching the birds flit around as the sun went down was among the highlights of our trip. There is a fabulous black sand beach with some decent snorkelling just a ten minute walk away. The lodge offers a lot of excursions. We... More

We stayed 3 nights, could have stayed much longer. We had booked and opted for the family bungalow, with the kids sleeping on an upstairs platform (although we were offered two adjacent rooms for the same price). A larger, two-bedroomed bungalow is currently nearing completion. Our creeper-festooned bungalow was charming, comfortable and well-designed, with privacy and lovely views. Good shower,... More

Just loved the place. You get your own bungalow, apart from the world, with amazing sea (and sunset views). The rooms are great, with a nice bathroom and great light. It's just the right place to relax. Breakfast is good, the restaurant also very nice and you can just go the beach in a 5 minutes walk. You get the... More

I stayed in Mucumbli for two weeks together with my best friend. The staff was very friendly and warm, although we had a few communication problems....the staff speaks only Portuguese and I don't....apart from the very helpful and amazing owner Tiziano who speaks English. He was awesome, helped us to plan tours and did everything to make us feel comfortable.... More

Mucumbli was our best stay in Sao Tome and Principe. Nice clean houses with beautiful interior, nice view from the balcony, good breakfasts, lunches and evening meals. Of course you can ask if it is smart to serve pasta so far away from Italy, but we had had so much fish and bananas so we were happy to get something... More

I visited Mucumbli for lunch. The place serves fresh food, relaxed and unobtrusive service and is reasonably inexpensive. Keep enough time to sip beer while watching the ocean. If possible, call ahead and order, to save time later.

Mucumbli sits on a lovely high spot of the lesser visited Northwest side of the Island, near Neves, overlooking the vastness of the Atlantic. It has an organic feel throughout thanks to the locally handcrafted furniture and building materials or the vegetable garden. Our sea facing cabin was colourful and very clean. There was a good shower and hot water... More

This is perhaps the most delightful place that it has been my pleasure to stay in. The property is well situated, wonderfully run, clean, charming, delightfully furnished and wil a fine restaurant. It is hard to put a finger on what this resort has that thousands of others do not, and after a while I gave up pondering. Suffice it... More
