Hotel Dona Ana has beautiful views and renovated rooms are OK. Hotel restaurant is average. There are probably better options in Vilanculos, including for the same price or below, but not a bad choice.

A quick visit for lunch. Wanted to order pizza but were informed that they have no pizza. As we walked out pizza's came out of the kitchen one by one. Not good. Not sure why only some guests can order.

HI Sunette D Compliments of the new season. The first week of the year is always the busiest, and unfortunately we had to implement a set Menu due to the high demand. We apologies if certain items were temporarily not available. All the best for 2017. The Hotel Dona Ana Team

I was on a very short stay on business and was well pleased with my accomodation. The staff were extremely helpful and thoughtful.
