“Breath of fresh air”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

After having stayed in down town Maputo, I was glad to come and enjoy the cold breeze of winter up here.

I was here for dinner with colleagues. The staff were very professional and the food was really good. I notice that Mozambique-ans eat almost the same food, but the taste and presentation was actually good.

They allowed to give us free-wifi since we were just eating and not staying there.

I probably would visit again, if not for the ambiance and quiet: the food.

This hotel receives a considerable amount of its business from conferences and exhibitions so one would have thought that the hotel facilities and standards were similarly, business standard but regrettably not. No hotel driver at the airport even though I had prebooked my airport pickup; there is no desk in the room so its very difficult to do any work in the room unless cramped in the corner using the coffee table; the wifi keeps timing out unless you use it constantly and its only one device per password. It would help if front desk would tell the guest that at check-in. Room service took one hour to deliver a chewy steak and chips. This hotel needs to take measures to improve on what could easily be a more than decent product and service.

Room Tip: Book a room near reception or else you have considerable walking distances

I've stayed ten days in Girassol Indy Hotel and I was disappointed with the overall stay. The positive aspects will be the location and outside gardens of the complex which are well kept. Negativelly, I didn't liked the rooms and the cleaning. The fact that the rooms have a door directly to the outside doesn't help. For instance, I had a small gecko on the wall of the room that has been there during several days. Not that I would very impressed with that, but it's something you shouldn't have on your hotel room wall.I've not stayed in other hotels in Maputo, however I heard that comparatively to others it's not a bad choice.

A very nice hotel, calm and clean. Beautiful territory. However, wifi is quite expensive, which is disappointing. Quite far from the center, but taxis are available 24/7 and the surrounding areas are nice.

This was real value for money. It may not look like something but it is conveniently situated in town basic yet tastefully decorated and clean. The breakfast was nice and had a wide variety of dishes. I really enjoyed it and will come back if I can....

Positive aspects: great location, great care with mosquitos (malaria), recreation area, spa and gym well and newly equiped.
Negative aspects: It was by far my worst experience in a Hotel in my life. I was staying with my wife and the hot water shower worked only in the first bath. I took a cold shower several times, even after conplains the problem was not fixed during our stay. Our room was without lights for about 4 or 5 times, the staff was not able to solve it during our stay. Nobody answered for sure what happened.
The room service was a joke. Delays up to one hour with frequent errors of plates, forgetting cutlery, glasses, etc.. Even asking the same plate to the same room several days the problem persisted.
The Staff has not received proper training in my opinion. Repeatedly entered the room even with the warning signal of "Do Not Disturb" or even with the key locked.
There is security all over but they had never stopped my car in the entrance gate to check which room I was staying or been asked for my card to make sure that I was a guest.
Checking Out was a great and sad episode. When I told that I would like to make the check out, the front desk said that they could not do it because it was before the reservation date (???). To solve the problem wrote a letter saying that I would not stay there anymore. The bill had several undue expenditure and the staff could not explain what it was but didn't fixed it saying that they were in their system for a reason.
Well, I would never get close to the hotel again. It's amazing how bad it can get paying more than USD 300 a day.

I stayed at the Girassol Indy hotel in the executive chalets. Very nice hotel and ground. Only complaint is the shower head was totally blocked and no water pressure, so morning showers were irritating. Good location if you have own transport, but lots of taxi's outside hotel to take you to restaurants.
