Whilst residing in Maputo our neighbour kindly advised us of a late late party so we decided to over night on a Friday at the Southern Sun. The sea facing room was clean and the bed extremely comfortable although an ironing board was leaning against the wall which detracted from the decor of the room and layout so I tried...

Lunch at this beautiful hotel overlooking the ocean is spectacularly good. the choice and quality of the food and wine is difficult to fault in any way. Service is discrete and efficient, and comfort is unsurpassed. Detailing the choice, range and variety of options would take considerable space - suffice to say we were most satisfied.

Maputo sun is conveniently located for the business traveller. The staff are friendly and very caring. The hairdresser is such a convenience. I was a bit dissapointed by the buffet ....expected a lot of seafood, only got sword fish😥 all three nights.

Comfortable and good facilities. Food is good and close to a local market. Nice view of the beach but I would not swim there as raw sewerage is dumped into Maputo Bay. Rather use the lovely swimming pool of the hotel.

The hotel is a bit old, but the service is great. The food is of an exceptional quality and the view from the hotel of the sea is absolutely stunning. The rooms can be a bit small, but are comfortable and always clean.
