Very nice hotel, excellent food. Very nice view. Good services. The room has very little balcony, they are little and you can feel the umidity; but was very clean. I've to be upset only for the offers from some staff for girls to have fun with, under payment . What happen was my first time in a luxury hotel.

Due to my work, I had to spend 2 days in Maputo and I have taken my wife with me as well. It was the best escape. The hotel is just extremely nice, colonial style mixed with modern style. The staff is incredible customer oriented, doing their best to help and make you feel like a king. The room itself...

This hotel is absolutely gorgeous. I travel a lot due to my job and I basically live in hotels. But this hotel is just perfect. Since you enter the hotel, the lobby area is very pretty with big sofas and furnished in a very nice style. The rooms are big enough, nicely furnished as well, with a king size very...

I am currently in Maputo for my official trip and it's always a feel good factor when you stay in Southern Sun. Excellent castle type beach side property with wonderful food and friendly staff along with beautiful sea facing room with small balcony gives you feeling of real luxury and comfort.

In front of the hotel, on the beach, it would be important for the staff to collect the garbage instead of bury it in the sand of the beach, creating the false sense of clean beach. This task is performed very early in the morning so that tourists do not realize that the garbage is buried there.

I enjoyed my weekend at this hotel very much! From their promotion material I expected the room and balcony to be much bigger, the room was a fair size but the balcony about 30 centimeters wide! The corridor had a very strong musty/damp smell. But on the plus side the staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was...

As a reasonably regular visitor to Africa, I have learned to temper my expectations of hotel accommodation. A clean room, a reasonable breakfast, half decent wifi and I'm happy out. The Southern Sun met - and exceeded wildly - these expectations. My room was clean and air conditioned. The bathroom was large and well appointed, with excellent water pressure and...

This hotel is like a home from home. Friendly staff and management. The food a bit pricy, but good. Too much to choose from breakfasts. The buffet is a must if you stay here. Unfortunately I did not get a room with a sea view, although stayed three weeks with a week at a time.

I had a family suite booked at the Southern Sun. The room included 2 x double beds. My daughter was sleeping in one bed and my husband and myself in the other. At 2am when we were fast asleep we were woken with a crack and the bed literally crumbled in the middle. We called reception who didn't really know...
