Could Not Be Happier
The Guesthouse came recommend by friends in Maputo. The room, staff, and facility were wonderful. We took the upstairs suite and the patio with sea view were great. Breakfast was excellent every morning. The staff were always trying to help and make sure all of out needs were met. Highly recommend.

Lovely big rooms, comfortable bed and a very nice bathroom. and as a bonus, in my room, there was a small secluded balcony. It was so nice to have a space outside the room. and the wifi was great. Breakfast was also good. The pasta de natas were extremely tasty.....

Comfortable and helpful overnight stay
We were warmly greeted upon arrival. The room was what we were expecting, although the incense/perfume in the room was a bit too overpowering for our liking. This was just an overnight stop, so we were not in the room very much. There was safe parking for our vehicle (although I imagine that this is very limited, as only 3 cars can fit in). The reception was very helpful in organising a taxi to take us to a restaurant, and even organising another to collect us at a designated time. The afternoon tea was a nice touch, and unfortunately we were not able to get full enjoyment of the breakfast, as we were rushing to leave in the morning. We only had a continental breakfast, but this was very tasty, with many options for a small establishment. As the guesthouse appeared to be fairly full, we were worried that it may be fairly noisy, but we did not notice too much noise from our room.

Tastefully and beautifully decorated!
This place is a little jem. I have stayed at Joli Guesthouse more than four times and I love it every single time. The staff is extremely helpful. The breakfast is the best part and the chef went out of his way to get lactose free milk for my breakfast
