After a very long hot journey this was a very nice place to stay. Hotel staff are very friendly and the manager goes the extra mile. Rooms are very nice and big with a bath and shower. The aircon works very well which good as it gets hot and humid in Pemba. Only down side is as with all Mozambique...

The best place to stay when you are in Pemba. Rooms are very clean, the food is of the highest quality and the staff is very helpful. The beach is very close to the hotel so walking distances are short.

Very pretty hotel in surprising location. Great facilities with super spa. Food needs more variety but what is on menu is done well. Some staff amazingly polite and keen to help, others would perhaps rather be watching TV somewhere but there you go!! Wifi needs upgrading- tragically slow at times. Pool area beautiful and stunning views. We spent some long...

This hotel changed my perspective on Africa! I love the pool, enjoyed the food, especially in the Naval Club, we had a great project dinner in this restaurant. Everything seems perfect until you'd reached the internet service situation. One-hour-free internet wifi is just a bit useless for business purpose. Make it unlimited instead!

We only stayed here as a transit night before heading to Azura Quilalea. The staff was wonderful- greeting us at the airport, filling our room with flower petals and bubbly (it was our honeymoon). The food was good (seafood stew) and the grounds were well-maintained. It's close to the airport too. Bed was comfy, plenty of hot water for the...

The only thing needed is to variate the breakfast menu. since the last time I was there last year the breakfast has been the same, I would advice to make new entries and variate weekly. besides that, all good.

We used the resort as a conference venue for a small team. It was a very positive experience: the staff is always friendly and helpful, the food at Club Naval was good, the gym and swimming pools are of a high standard.

I have stayed at this place a few times now and the service just keeps on getting better. It is a little expensive but the place has stunning infinity pool features. This time they gave me a room on the beach, ground floor. As I opened my balcony door, the beach sand was a hop across the hedges. The waters...
