Basic chalets near the beach - plus great pizza!
The chalets at Zombie Cucumber are fairly basic but have everything you need - and the outdoor bathrooms are definitely a plus! There is also a beautiful pool area as well as excellent wood-fired pizza. The staff were friendly, and the owner was very helpful in explaining how to take public transport to Tofo. Though the lodge doesn't directly overlook the beach, it's just a one-minute walk away from a truly spectacular stretch of ocean. The only downsides are that the room was quite hot at night, and the ceiling fan also made a lot of noise which made it a bit difficult to sleep. The mosquito net had a few holes so we frequently had to get rid of the mosquitoes that flew inside the bed net. The chalets were also quite basic and not very well-lit - we thought they were a bit pricey (we paid $64 per night for a double room) for what they were.

Nice hotel close to the beach
Good stuff: Nice hotel, nice room with balcony, excellent mosquito net, nice garden, good location. Good pizza in the restaurant. Could be better: internet didn't work for a day. Breakfast is heavily overpriced. For the room price I paid, breakfast should have been included. Vegetarian menu in the restaurant is slim. Vegan menu non-existent sadly. Overall for the price of the room you get much more in Maputo or London for that matter.

Trevlig och hjälpsam personal och god mat. Wi-fi fungerade inte hela tiden och den närmaste stranden är inte bra.

Boa estadia..
Espaço agradável, jardim muito bem cuidado. Gostamos muito do quarto em estilo tradicional e da casa de banho ao ar livre. Como pontos negativos tivemos alguns problemas com a internet sem fios e achamos o pequeno almoço extremamente caro e básico comparativamente com outros hotéis perto. O hotel fica perto do centro da vila e em frente a uma praia muito bonita mas com vidros na areia, é necessário fazer uma caminhada de cerca de 30 minutos para chegar até uma praia limpa. Staff amigável e disponível.
