4/10 Fair

This hotel is not worth the money, the breakfast was a disapointment.
Verified Expedia guest review

8/10 Very good

Bom hotel. Preços elevados
O hotel é bom e se destaca o ótimo atendimento de todos os funcionários. A limpeza é levada muito a sério e o lugar, mesmo sem luxo, merece elogios. Um dos dias faltou água quente para o banho, mas no dia seguinte tudo estava consertado. O isolamento acústico no quarto não é bom e durante a noite pode acarretar alguns sustos, especialmente em vista das paredes do quarto serem de "lona". Café da manhã simples, mas bem servido.

6/10 Good

Achtung bei der Buchung
wir haben über 8ßß Euro pro Nacht (2 Personen / Beach view) bezahlt. Andere bekamen das Ganze für die Hälfte. Die Lodge ist fantastisch gelegen. Das Mineralwasser war aus und es gab es dann auch nicht mehr. Bei dem Preis war das schwer zu verstehen. Naja, wir hatten trotzdem 6 schöne Tage. Wir waren dann noch zwei Nächte in Maputo. Dort können wir das Pesana Serena Hotel empfehlen. Einfach grossartig!!!
