I’ve been in the hotel for the NYE with my wife and the hotel was not ready to the enormous crowds, the hotel staff was impeccable and very friendly, good rustic hotel. We noticed right at the arrival that our room was not ready (apparently the checkout is at 2pm),several parts of the hotel were in maintenance (this should be done months in advance), there was a kind of disrespect with the guests, there was an Karaoke till late night and open to everyone and some guests us including we were kind of uncomfortable with the in and out and the noise etc. open Wi-Fi to outsiders which resulted in bad signal for the guests, I think for next year the hotel should prepare better to receive it’s guests. Not happy at all, lot of improvements is need here.

My Spouse and I stayed at Cafe Central during the weekend. Although the Island is very calm due to COVID19 we had a nice intimate moment, vows renewed. Tidy bedrooms, clean swimming pool and nice staff staff atendance. Recomended

Nice central location, friendly and helpful staff. We liked our stay here a lot. We had booked a double room, but they kindly upgraded us to a nicer twin room as there were not many guests in the end of January. To be honest, when we saw the ordinary double rooms on a lower floor, we would not have enjoyed staying there so much. Some of the rooms on the ground floor look very dark. Pool looked nice, but we didn't try swimming. Wifi and air conditioning worked OK. Breakfast is nice, it's just a bit slow to arrive. They kindly lent us bicycles for exploring the small island, and one of the staff also arranged a chapa to pick us up on its way from the island to Nampula. Most guests seem to arrange taxis, but you can get a chapa, if you ask in good time. (The chapa trip took a long time, and one of the tyres in it broke, but we had planned a lot of time for the trip before our flight, so all in all it was OK.) We can recommend this friendly hotel to everyone, just try to check that your room won't be one of the dark ground floor rooms.

I post honest reviews about our experience so here’s both good and bad things: Pros: Pool-Beautiful! Recently finished I think and totally stunning, especially the flowers around it! Breakfast- Fruit, cereal, bread and your choice of eggs with tea or coffee and juice. Filing! Location-perfect for everything! Staff-perfectly friendly! Manager was Brilliant, super helpful with all our questions!! Wifi-fast Hot water ✅ Aircon ✅ Tv, mozzi net, fridge and kettle in our room. Cons: Building work-Didn’t really bother us! Will be beautiful when fully finished! Breakfast-if staying for a length of time I imagine it would get a tad repetitive! Dinner- Menu isn’t very big and similar prices to other restaurants in the area with rooftops and ocean views so we chose not to eat here in the evening. Overall I would 100% stay here again and fully recommend to anyone visiting this beautiful island!
