We visited for lunch only.

We ordered medium rare steak and lobster salad. We were, however, advised that although the lobster was available it was not fresh. We appreciated this and changed to a calamari salad. The service was very friendly but slow, albeit probably on par with other restaurants in Mozambique. The salad was very good but the steak was overcooked. The prices were reasonable.

Very nice and clean facilities.

We will visit again but won't be ordering steak.

Sophistication with a warm breeze and spectacular views - loved the food (though the staff must learn that guests generally don't want a party atmosphere at breakfast) and the overall vibe of the place was chic and modern. A European style venue in the heart of Africa. Sadly wifi doesn't reach as far as far Room 14, so beware if you're addicted to the net.......

Very clean, very nice rooms, lovely views both from the rooms and from the outside pool/restaurant area.
Very close to the cathedral and the centre of town.
Welcoming staff, good breakfasts and light bar menu.

Old Captain's house - then a tea room / ice cream spot - refurbished by well know architect Forjaz about 8 years ago - dining room smart and unfussy décor.

Upon arrival at the airport, we realised that the hotel had forgotten to collect us from the airport. We never received any real apology or reason for this, other than it being a communication error. We did confirm our arrival with the hotel the day before.

Our overall stay was disappointing. The food was mediocre, breakfast was bland. The amount of food prepared for the morning breakfast buffet was not enough to feed all guests. First comes, first serves. The chef is also yet to learn how to prepare a medium egg. There was daily limitations with food availability on the menu. Not all waiters were English speaking. It was a normal occurrence to wait 1.5hours for your food to arrive

The TV channels are limited, we experienced constant power dips. We had to constantly request for reception to reset the TV Channels after electricity was restored. Wi-Fi reception was non-existent.

Location of the hotel is not ideal for holiday purposes. We had to take a taxi to Tofo and Barra on a daily basis. The hotel is boring. Nothing special was done on Christmas day.

The mini bar was only restocked once during our 10 day stay with the hotel. Expense slips was added to our account for payment which was not incurred by us. (i.e. cigarettes was added to our bill, yet we are non-smokers). They also billed us each day for the missing stock in the mini bar, yet the mini bar was never replenished.

Some of the staff was very friendly, the hotel has a great view and the room was very comfortable. We chose this hotel based on the recommendations made by Bookings.com, which I feel was misleading and inaccurate. Our overall experience was very disappointing. I won’t recommend this hotel to anyone. You don’t get your money’s worth.
