We spent 4 nights at the hotel in mid-December. The rooms are quite comfortable but would not rate the hotel as 4 star, rather 3 star. Food is okay, nothing to rave about. The beach is not one for swimming in, with lots of local fishing boats. The tide is out most of the day, so no chance of swimming there. The short trip to the Portuguese Island was the only real "beach" experience but the day we went we shared the island with 400 people from one of the cruise ships that visit the island. They have a kiddies room with loads of nice new toys which was great as we were travelling with two young boys. Is right next to the local village. We had dinner at Lucas restuarant but very expensive for what we got but food much nicer than at hotel, so price vs quality. 3 nights is sufficient. There is only 1 flight each day from Maputo to Inhaca. The flight leaves Maputo at 15:45 and then departs from Inhaca at around 16:30. Due to bad weather, the flight from Inhaca to Maputo was delayed and we missed our connecting flight to Johannesburg and had to spend the night in Maputo. It was a nice break but would not rush back there in a hurry.
