This place has a very good location, on the beach and close to Tofo town, but still far enough away not to here it. The buildings though, are very run down. Service was alright and we could use their old kitchen for cooking... 3 stars, because I dont think the price matches what you get.

Best budget accommodation on right on the main the beach and easy walking distance , as in 5 minutes or less from all the action. It was clean and comfortable with mozzie net. We looked at various other places in Tofo as well, notably the Turtle place and the Mozbeat place. Both of those were very far from the main... More

Hard to understand why this place is not always packed with people... On a prime spot just by the beach, 3 minutes walk from the market... Rooms are basic but breezy, shady, silent (unlike Fatimas, where a lot of parties take place), clean, the staff is friendly... really good value!

Nordins is more of a budget place with a lower end price for Tofo but it is safe, secure, clean and quiet so we were very happy with it for our week there. It's right on the beach, just set back behind a few trees which was great for a bit of shade and also put a small gap between... More

We had a great time in Tofo but to high expectations (because of all nice reviews from this site) when we arrived to Nordins Lodge. Maybe to high... Because after a visit at "Baoba beach" in Vilanculos, with the same price, this became a little bit of a disappointment. + The beautiful sea view + The cute and helpful receptionist... More

Great huts right on the beach. Porches were big and included chairs and tables. The room was nice, although it was quite dark due to a lack of natural light, but I suppose that's good in the summer when it's really hot. We had a fridge and water boiler in our room. Staff was friendly and helpful. I'd definitely stay... More

We stayed at the peaceful Nordins for 7 nights in March 2015. All the huts are beach facing and proper 'open-the-door-and-see-the-sea' style. Our hut was brick walled, thatched top, large interior with adjacent bathroom & hot shower. Net is included and some basic storage. Each has a shared porch which you can dry washing on or read in the shade.... More

Tofo has the best beach. And Nordin aka Benjamin aka Bino is very friendly and helpful. Two great reasons to stay at this place. Also because it's really affordable. If the rooms get a liitle more air, to cool down in the evening, it's the perfect place to relax.

Very impressed - I was travelling with two mates and we decided to get our own spot after a (fun but busy) time at a backpackers. Nordin's is very chilled, you get a basic room with 1-3 beds (upon request, they vary inside), all with mosquito nets, small bathroom with shower, and a sheltered patio outside, where you can eat,...
