“They don't even realize how bad it is”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Booked via telephone as it was a transition night. The information passed was wrong, as the price combined by phone was for one person and we are a couple. Although we speak Portuguese, the communication is an issue. The room was really unclean, ants all over the place, humidity on the walls, stained towels. Would stayed there for ten times less the price. Outside looks very nice, but it just won’t be that way. When asked for a better room, willing to pay more, they proudly gave one that was exactly the same...
Down the road there’s Wimbi Sun Residencial that is a bit more expensive but they offer buffet breakfast. Didn't saw the rooms though.

As with most places in the north of Mozambique, this hotel is not value for money at all. The lock was hanging out the door, the bathroom wasn't very clean, and despite paying over 2,000 meticais for the room, breakfast wasn't even included. I suppose it's a bit more expensive because it's over the road from the beach but the beach is not particularly nice and even dirty so it's not worth paying the extra.
