We really enjoyed staying 4 nights at this lodge. Chris was such a great host and he and his staff went extra mile to accommodate all of our wishes from choices in food to activities. He is an excellent chef, if I may add!! Would go again definitely!

Chris is a super chef and lovely person caring for his clients (going the extra mile to make your stay super great). Rooms are a bit tiny for the price but clean. (Mosquito net had holes.) Transport to the island can be arranged through the hotel or individually easily.

My wife and I came to Cinco Portas as part of our honeymoon in November of 2015. We stayed for a week and absolutely loved it! We were the only visitors so Chris gave us a good deal on the two-story room with its own terrace. The hotel is situated in a lush garden with a nice pool. One can... More

Cinco Portas was the base of our week long visit to ilha do Ibo. It is a fabulous place cared with a love to detail that warms and welcomes. Zaza and Chris made all aspects of our visit easy, from the transfers to the island to the various and unforgettable activities ilha do Ibo and the Quirimbas have to offer.... More

Situated close to the dhow harbour and central to the historic section of Ibo island, this lovely place stood out for us for a couple of reasons. The incredibly friendly atmosphere and reception from Christopher (manager and exec chef, and what a chef, more about that later) and Isabel ensured a smooth arrival and hassle free stay. Our room had... More

We stayed for two nights and had a brilliant time. Ibo is a special place in its own right, and Cinco Portas simply added to this. The pool is beautiful and the gardens, furnishings, the kitchen and the bar are all very tasteful. The food is the thing to really write home about though. It is original, delicious and generous....

We didn't stay at Cinco Portas for the night because we travelled on a small budget but on our first evening on Ibo we tried the food of the chef Chris and fell in love!! The place is amazing right next to the sea and the lovely manager Sasa allowed us to stay at the pool during the day even... More

Had booked in a different place down the road, which was admittedly beautiful too - but this place just had a panache to it, great atmosphere, beautiful pool, amazing food, wonderful owner set in a gorgeous restored colonial building. If I had to do it again, I know where I'd come back to.

If you are looking for good food. Look no further. The current chef Chris is a master. The lunches and dinners are absolutely excellent. A five star lodge it is not. But nor does it charge five star prices. The rooms are small. Clean but tired. The bedding is clean but not fancy. The manager Ian is friendly and accommodating... More

My family and I stayed at Cinco Portas a few weeks ago, whilst on a 2week vacation in Mozambique. Out of the places we stayed in during our holiday, this was hands down the best. The manager Juerg was warm, caring and really forthcoming and made us feel like at home. And so did the hotel's waiter Pemba, who in... More
