“At best a 3* hotel”
Reviewed July 30, 2011

On arrival on Ilha de Mocambique for a business trip, our local colleague informed us that this was the only place on the island where he could be sure we would have hot water and electricity. It's true that the hotel did have that, but I agree with an earlier reviewer that to call this 4* is a big exaggeration. Rooms are functional but run down. The breakfast left a lot to be desired, and we didn't eat other meals here based on a colleague's previous bad experience. Of course the one thing that is 4* is the price - and paying a premium for basic conditions leaves a bad taste in the mouth! Problem is, if you're here for business there are precious few options available.

Nice hotel, probably the best place to stay in the Island of Mozambique.
The staff is very friendly and will help you out with any information or map that you will need to explore the charming island of Mozambique.
The rooms (I guess all) are sea-view and the hotel location is good.
The rooms are clean and confortable. Bring your own shampoo as apart from soap and condoms (Mozambique has an extremely high % of AIDS - no hookers in the hotel, don't worry) you will not find anything else in your WC.
Good breakfast and good lunch as well!
Not expensive...

The only hotel on the island. The remaining places are just guesthouses. Hotel claims to have 4 stars, but do not believe it: I would rate it 2-3, not more.
Simple, but functional rooms, most of them with seaview, but none with balcony.
No swimming pool, but there is large beach just in opposite of the hotel.
All rooms with AC, but the devices can be quite noisy and the temperature is pre-programmed, so you just switch it on and off.
Breakfast quite good.
Few amenties in the room: just soap and 3-pack of condoms, so bring your own shampoo.
