Fabulous 8,8 From 81 reviews

Exceptional 10,0
It was amazing.
Nokuthula, za2 night family trip
Exceptional 10,0
This is an amazing hotel. The rooms are luxurious and the grounds are well kept. The elevator is a real treat dating back to the 1950's. The food is excellent and the staff are very helpful and friendly. The gym is wonderful.
Manfred, za1 night business trip
Very good 8,0
Really nice relaxing and quiet comfortable place t
I stayed a total of 4 days - I was lucky to be in the refurbished wing with very good view of the sea. The first room I stayed wasn’t great but was them moved to a really lovely room (room 526). It has a balcony that came handy for chilling with a glass of wine and some relaxing classical and jazz music. The Aquarius bar was very nice, when there was no rain. Lovely knowledgable staff (at least of the South African portfolio of wine) - teally nice.

Great place to stay. Fernando and all of the staff were wonderful. Maputo was a lot of fun but you need to fix the pavements. Abrigado
