“great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

A very nice hotel, calm and clean. Beautiful territory. However, wifi is quite expensive, which is disappointing. Quite far from the center, but taxis are available 24/7 and the surrounding areas are nice.

This was real value for money. It may not look like something but it is conveniently situated in town basic yet tastefully decorated and clean. The breakfast was nice and had a wide variety of dishes. I really enjoyed it and will come back if I can....

Positive aspects: great location, great care with mosquitos (malaria), recreation area, spa and gym well and newly equiped.
Negative aspects: It was by far my worst experience in a Hotel in my life. I was staying with my wife and the hot water shower worked only in the first bath. I took a cold shower several times, even after conplains the problem was not fixed during our stay. Our room was without lights for about 4 or 5 times, the staff was not able to solve it during our stay. Nobody answered for sure what happened.
The room service was a joke. Delays up to one hour with frequent errors of plates, forgetting cutlery, glasses, etc.. Even asking the same plate to the same room several days the problem persisted.
The Staff has not received proper training in my opinion. Repeatedly entered the room even with the warning signal of "Do Not Disturb" or even with the key locked.
There is security all over but they had never stopped my car in the entrance gate to check which room I was staying or been asked for my card to make sure that I was a guest.
Checking Out was a great and sad episode. When I told that I would like to make the check out, the front desk said that they could not do it because it was before the reservation date (???). To solve the problem wrote a letter saying that I would not stay there anymore. The bill had several undue expenditure and the staff could not explain what it was but didn't fixed it saying that they were in their system for a reason.
Well, I would never get close to the hotel again. It's amazing how bad it can get paying more than USD 300 a day.

I stayed at the Girassol Indy hotel in the executive chalets. Very nice hotel and ground. Only complaint is the shower head was totally blocked and no water pressure, so morning showers were irritating. Good location if you have own transport, but lots of taxi's outside hotel to take you to restaurants.

The Indy Congress Hotel is probably the best conference venue in Maputo. The hotel is unusual - spread out over a few acres of landscapes gardens. Room are functional as are the public areas. Good pool, spa and gym.

This hotel have nice and modern rooms. The service needs to improve and some of the staff need training to increase their performance. The food is great, specially the sea food. The gym fees are extremelly expensive for the small space they have. The pool is nice and have good size. Besides this weak points, we had a great time there.

Stayed here for business on a colleagues recommendation. More suitable for a family of holiday makers than for business. It claims for stars, but feels more like three!! The rooms are functional and simple but the beds are hard and uncomfortable. The bathroom was ridiculously small and poorly designed...you have to enter the bath from the back!!!

My TV was not working and it took 10 hours and 6 calls just to get someone from maintenance to have a look at it.

The only redeeming feature was the food, which came in large tasty portions.

Will i return? Not by choice.
