I think this hotel is more suited for business trips but it does have a nice pool area for family. The potential to be a great hotel is evident but it just lacks that extra touch. The staff are friendly and seem motivated but I get the feeling the process or systems are holding them back (management!). The rooms and...

Nothing special about this hotel. It is a basic hotel and the facilities are as basic as they come. I chose this hotel as it was close to my work. The good thing is that they offer free airport pick up and drop.

I have stayed in a lot of hotels around the world all price levels. This is sopposed to be an upscale hotel. The lobby is a bit outdated. The rooms are small but nice. Its a quite area as long as you get a room towards the back. Our visit started with that they didnt have our reservation from Hotels.com...

Last day in Maputo we decided to try high tea on the terrace, nice setting good view over pool area and sea. Service was slow even though it was not busy food average displayed nicely but lacking, prices are for an expensive hotel but food does not reflect so just paying for the seat on the terrace

Good central location near businesses and government buildings. Friendly and helpful staff. Attractive grounds and decor. Definitely geared for meetings and functions. Rooms are clean and functional, generally very good internet connectivity. Restaurant is first-rate, although menu choices are somewhat limited. Wish they had a gym or fitness center, but overall a very good experience and good value.

So the hotel is one of the most expensive in Maputo... And is rated 4.5 but feels more like a 3 although you will be reminded of the 4.5 star rating once you get the bill. The pool area is stunning and the restaurant is pretty large. I went down for dinner around 5:30 pm and was told that there...

I have stayed in this hotel for a week. I was having a business trip so the company that I was working with booked this hotel to me. If you stay in this hotel, make sure that your money, passport is with you. My money was stolen when I was out of my room.
