I spent 2 weeks on business in Maputo, and stayed at the Southern Sun. I found the staff to be so friendly, polite and pleasant, and the food is great. Nothing like a bitterly cold 2M cerveja on the patio overlooking the Indian Ocean after a tough day!

The hotel service offers relatively good service, but can be even greater. Breakfast is always amazing. Certain staff at certain times deliver excellent service, but unfortunately not all. Lacking consistency. The location is perfect and front desk staff are absolutely warm.

The best experience ever!! An oasis in a busy city where nothing is too much effort from very friendly staff. It was two nights of an unbeatable deal we just couldn't refuse. Evening and breakfast buffets you can't miss with choices, choices and more choices. What a wonderful birthday for my wife with chocolates and champagne in the room when... More

We spent 5 nights here in a sea facing room, which we can highly recommend. Our accommodation was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The lounge and bar area were very attractive and inviting and the breakfasts were well worth it! Plenty of choice and very attentive and friendly staff. Definitely the best location and the perfect place to relax. Would... More

The Southern Sun is situated right on the beach in Maputo. Formerly a Holiday Inn this hotel provides a really enjoyable base from which to conduct ones business in Maputo. There are newer hotels, including a massive, and seemingly almost empty, edifice recently open by Chinese and an ultra modern one, owned by Portuguese that feels like a private hospital,... More

Undoubtebly the place to stay and this for very many reasons. Having spent thousands and thousands of nights in hotels, it is immediately apparent this one is extremely well managed. It did not take me very long to spot out the General Manager and the Deputy General Manager as basically one or the other are on sight at any time... More
