We had a great time at Machangulo Beach Lodge, Raquel and Greg were fantastic hosts. The whole adventure started with a 90 min boat trip across Maputo bay, we were greeted by Raquel and from that point on we were really looked after. It looks like some more renovation work is on going but that didn't detract from a great experience. We had 3 meals a day, and practically had the place to ourselves.
As with most places a few tweaks would have added to the experience. Having a wine list would have helped, also being asked if you wanted a drink with your meal would have been great. There is a need to have some sort of communication system between the pool bar and the main building. Also maybe a swing or climbing frame on the beach for the children would also be a nice touch.
Saying all that however we had an awesome time out little one was on the beach most of the time and so she was kept busy, whilst there we celebrated our anniversary for this Raquel and Greg organized a Dhow cruise in the afternoon which was stunning.
We also experienced some amazing sunsets n the viewing deck and was the perfect place to down a bottle of bubbly.
We didn't want to leave but on the boat trip back to Maputo we came across a pod of hump-backed dolphins who followed us for a while.
All in all and fantastic trip brilliantly looked after and we will be going back.
