Firstly for the price a traveller should be entitled to far better everything! The food and service in the main lounge is really shocking. One can wait ages for the meal to arrive and more often than not when it does it more closely resembles hostel rather than hotel food.
The accommodation section (This hotel is laid out more in the format of a barracks than a hotel its rows upon rows of blocks with units of 1, 2 & 3 beds in each block) is not any better and the service here is equally bad. Room service is a joke. The delay from the dining area compounds into a disaster, as the food has to travel to the other side of just about a city block on a tray, with very little attention paid to keeping it warm. I have yet to have a meal to the room that was palatable.
Internet is iffy at best and pricey. I have used the gym and its acceptable at best.
The compound seems to host more long term guests and so it almost falls more into a self-catering villa and residential hotel than a business or holiday hotel.
It’s a miss if you need to be in Maputo for only a night or two. You will be better off elsewhere (Good luck with that!!!)
