all in all was excellent. The Bath handle was broken, needs to be fixed. The entrance door gets locked during day break, good it's for safety. But the guards need to be awake to open for guests. we had to knock for a while before they came to open.

Hotel staff was great. Reception, cleanliness and in room service was superb. Food was great starting from breakfast, lunch and supper. The room allocated to us had a magnificent view of the sea. The location of the hotel is ideal for peace and calm.

Once again reception and general service top standard. The restaurant setting is also unbelievable. However had to complain about the room.

I sure one can contract a disease from this smell. The loud...

I have stayed here over the years and have never been disappointed. Service is excellent, food great. One of the best breakfasts ever! But the location is wonderful. The hotel is right on the beach. I have been upgrade several times to a room with a sea view. You just don't want to leave the room, Highly recommended.

Great views, food and service. A sundowner on the terrace is a must at this location. Close to some world class seafood restaurants and easily accessible to the centre of town. 15 minutes from the airport. All round a decent place to stay.

I stayed in Southern Sun, Maputo during December 2016 for over a week. It was a great place to say. The dinner was awesome - each day they change the theme. I was lucky to be there when they had the Indian and the African theme. The view of the Indian ocean is amazing.

Many years of staying at this hotel and the quality is consistently high. Extremely clean rooms. Great restaurants especially the Indian cuisine and memorable breakfasts. Very comfortable rooms with excellent wifi and comprehensive range of TV channels and it's great if you can get a sea side view. The bar area is a great place for informal meetings both day...
