We decided to stay in Fatimas nest in Tofo only because we took their bus from Maputo and the guys from the Maputo branch convinced us to pay in advance in Maputo also for the stay in Tofo. They told us it will be cheaper that way. The minute we arrived to Fatimas nest in Tofo we knew we made... More

I stayed her for one night and what a s...hole! Service was terrible at check inn and out. All safe boxes in dorm were broken! No utensils in commun kitchen... Just a very old and run down place, with very lacy staff! And not cheaper than other places around, if you just lokk for them!

I had my own little bungalow with ensuite overlooking the beach. Cheap, safe and handy location.. The bus ride took 10 hours (from Maputo) and was not very enjoyable. Plan ahead and fly in and out of Inhambhe saves you 2 whole days of return travel.. Staff were nice enough however don't go out of their way to make conversation..... More

The lodge has perfect location because is almost into the beach, you can really see the sea from the rooms and from the restaurant. The bar has parties at weekends, if you don't have the mood for party, don't go to Fatima's Nest. The dormitory and facilities are ok.

The location is killer. Short walk to the market, beach right out front. The staff are pretty nice for the most part and fairly helpful. Kitchen can be slow but the food isnt bad. Pool table and lounge areas are nice at night, but bad pop music is irritating and loud, even when there is nothing going on. Prices are... More

Most important thing first: fantastic location on the beach with a balcony and bar overlooking it. This is why I would recommend this place. The food was ok, the drinks reasonably priced. The irritants: wifi between 7pm and 5am, like in Maputo. Why???? This is what backpackers want the most, like it or not. Also, the dorm is a bit... More

Good location - right on the beach, but a bit of a stroll to town. Not terribly clean room, nor great value for money or food but lively at night with other guests and travellers from all over town. But the gripe lay elsewhere. When I asked about whale shark snorkelling I was told ('in confidence') that there weren't any... More

This place is located right on the beach, with a nice patio overlooking the beach to enjoy some drinks or food. The bungalows are quite basic and have seen better times, but have a mosquito net. Shower does not always have warm water, but one gets used to that. Best time is in the morning. You can cook your own... More

The location is GREAT and close to the market, but you excpect a warm sshower for the cost of this place. I stayed here for a week for 2 reasons there was other travelers and it has a great location. The value on the other hand is horrid. The service is slow, arrogant and money driven. The wifi also doesnt... More

This is a decent place. If you end up diving with Tofo Scuba you get discounts. It's convenient that the chapa goes right to their door and they are a 5 minutes walk to the dive shop. The diving was excellent. FYI though, it's about 300 mets cheaper to just wait for the chapa back to Maputo on the road... More
