  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Great clean unique spot that is quiet and calm. The food is not great and expensive though and it is a bit of a walk to town, ~25 min.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Nice place!

    Nice clean place. It was very quiet during our stay as there were only 2-4 cabins booked. We almost felt we had the whole place to our selves. Breakfast was nice. The rest of the Food was some days good and some days alright, it wasn’t consistent. The walls are very thin so we can easily hear people talk or walk close to the cabin. We were a family of 5, with 3 young kids. We easily walked to the beach and center of the city everyday (30 min kids Pace). We enjoyed it as we could encounter locals and their homes.

    Cool Hotel!

    Very cool hotel for people who want more than just a place to sleep. Mozambeat has very nice common areas and nice plans organized every night. Only bad thing is that it's a bit far from tofo's center (15-20 mins walking distance). I'd suggest them offering a "taxi service". Anyway, I'd defenitely recommend this place.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Tiene unas buenas instalaciones para poder haber creado un gran hotel, sin embargo, la nula limpieza de las habitaciones y sus baños (bichos por todas partes, mosquitos como en ningún otro sitio de Tofo, almohadas malolientes y con arañas en su interior...), así como una atención poco cercana (a diferencia de todos los demás sitios de Mozambique), hacen que tu estancia se amargue. Aunque se indica en la web, la distancia al centro es otro inconveniente, así como sus múltiples fiestas y cines (a todo volumen) y menús diarios basados en cómo superar tu resaca (parece que estás en Ibiza y no en un país tan increíble como Mozambique). No lo recomiendo a nadie, a menos que tú objetivo del viaje sea emborracharte todos los días.
