“Rooms outside”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

If you have to reserve a room in this hotel than choose the ones inside Nr. 1 Nr. 2 Nr. 3 or the upstairs room for 20€ more .The other around the swimming pool are a total MESS. We had a room N° 9 with cockroaches inside I had to insist for a better room. The ones located behind the pool do not have windows, they have a bay window with a curtain (the curtain must be permanently closed) otherwise we see everything inside your room and you are in the dark . we had a power outage I went to ask a candle at the reception we stayed over two hours in the dark, the reception wanted me to pay the candle.This hotel has no Generator group when we were there the owner of the hotel was building a terrace (esplanade) overlooking the road on July 24 and the mounds of trash!!! .120€ it's outrageous, for 120 € in Europe the standard is much higher!!!

I was at this hotel for 4 nights... it is an oasis in the middle of busy Maputo.. Stayed in an upstairs room ... which had a balcony overlooking the magnificent and always warm pool. The roo beautifully decorated.. the bathroom modern and the shower absolutely perfect.... safe in working order and a flat screen TV with over 20 channels to choose from.. English speaking and very friendly staff.... bed linen and towels pristine white.

Despite the tacky cheap decor and the mosquitoes, it would be ok (but certainly not worth the price) if not for the very disagreable staff who seemed to resent our arrival and stay. The first morning, we came for breakfast at 8am to discover that there was hardly any food left (we were told some guests had taken the food away!) and it took a lot of arguing to get some bread fruit and yogurt. The coffee is bad instant. The day of our departure, we needed to store our luggage for a few hours and the front desk employee refused to let us store it behind the desk arguing it would be safe in the entrance itself. We left to our meeting with officials with our luggage. Never again. For a bit more, you can get a much nicer and friendly place to stay in Maputo.

I used to love staying at this hotel, and decided to return there to find the wonderful atmosphere i remembered, despite the bad reviews I was reading now.
It was a mistake. Things have deteriorated and I will not go back there. Here are the reasons:
A very small room is given to the single traveler. Bathroom is still ok even luxurious, with a real bathtub. Bedding is not very clean and some plastic foil is inserted between sheet and mattress, presumably for protection of the latter... making sleep a not very nice experience.
The breakfast is a rather symbolic and small meal, with "Ricoffy" as a substitute for coffee. This meal is nowadays taken in a small room, an ex-clothes store, whereas it was taken before in the nice front restaurant.
WIFI Internet is for a fee. The pool, still beautiful in the patio seems forever to be occupied by a cleaning robot trailing a plastic hose, spoiling the otherwise delightful setting.
Staff is ok but on the rude side.
The price was ~100 EURO.

I booked Hotel Villa das Mangas for the 17 and 18 September. When I got there, I was simply told that the hotel was full and they transfered me to Hotel Vila das Arabias. This was never mentioned on my booking confirmation. I was not happy but accepted to go to Vila das Arabias. This was so bad that I refused to stay and cenceled my booking. There was no power in Maputo that day and they dont have a generator. The room was tiny and with no windows. The maid that was supposed to be cleaning was sleeping on the bed and locked herself in while taking her nap. They had to knock very hard until she woke up and open the door. Seeing this i simply walked away. They acted as I was just beeing demainding. No apologies, nothing. Absurd!

Dear Ms. Dana Prista,

Many thanks for your valuable feedback!

We apologise for not being able to attend your booking at Mangas Villa Hotel and regret you did not use our services either at Arabias Boutique Hotel.

The power cut you experienced did not last longer than 30 minutes and affected Maputo city in general. It had been publicly advertised by the electricity supplier resulting from a major technical intervention that took place during the day to affect users as little as possible.

As we have informed when you approached the Hotel, your room was not ready yet because we had had a late check-out and the maid was still in the cleaning process. We apologise for not having the room available for your check-in.

We are confident you would have had a different impression should you had actually stayed with us and enjoyed the dedication and attention of our Teams and the exquisite atmosphere of our premises.

Looking forward to seeing you again soon and remaining at your service!

The appearance of this place is great and the food and service were also nice but I wouldn't want to spend very long here. We only stayed one night on our way down from the north and thought we would splurge after some fairly basic living conditions elsewhere. It was a little bit disappointing but I suppose Mozambique is on it's way up and is not the cheapest place in the world to stay these days.

Very sweet little hotel in the middle of Maputo. My children (3 and 5) love the place, nice staff never tired of making an extra effort. Rooms are small but new renovated. Owners are very kind and will make a true effort to accommodate you. Sure you can find more luxury - but you will have to pay the double.

Room Tip: Have reception show you the rooms available when you arrive, there is a a number of different choice...
