In a word, fantastic. My husband and I had a lovely three-week stay in Nov-Dec 2016 and we just got back for an entire month. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and the GM and his deputy are always available for a friendly chat to see your needs are being met and things are running smoothly. The breakfast buffet is...

I stayed for 4 nights on a business trip and had a very nice stay. My room had a view which was a lovely surprise. Breakfasts were fantastic, and I had two excellent dinners in the restaurant as well. The room was clean and staff were friendly. No complaints!

Did you know that Southern Sun Maputo is the only hotel in Maputo that’s based on the beachfront? It’s true! Pool and beach at your door step. Excellent services received. We learned a bit of Portugues language. Wonderful employees who were willing to assist at all times.
