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...

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.

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...

Lean and modern renovation of a nice old colonial building. Bright, large, super clean and nicely decorated rooms; very pleasant staff; functionning wifi; and exceptional location overseeing Inhambane's bay. We had to leave very early, before breakfast started at 7:00 and they kindly prepared baskets for us. Excellent stay.

The outside architecture of the hotel is not quite appealing; similar to Cuban communist architecture from the 1960s. However, the room are fairly spacious, clean and modern. The restaurant is very good, although service is slow. View of flamingos right next to the hotel at low tide. Helpful staff. The best option of Inhambane, although expensive.

If you decide to stay here while you are in Inhambane - and why wouldn't you? It's the nicest place in town by far - be sure to negotiate the price. We turned up laet one afternoon and were quoted the walk-in rate. We eventually bargained that down to something we thought was realy pretty affordable: but were greatly saddeneed...

I spent a couple of nights at the Casa do Capitao and would have loved to stay a bit longer. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds (a bit short though), a balcony, mosquito screens, mini bar... plus I very much liked the overall design of the hotel. The pool is large and good for a swim, the staff very...

“Rooms are all in a long passage facing out over the bay. Try for rooms in the middle of the complex, so that chatter from the patio does not frustrate you. Also ask for a room with NO interleading door to the next room as if that is occupied the noise can filter through.”
