If you're looking for a beautiful location, simple but super-sweet accommodation and the friendliest and most helpful service in Mozambique, this has to be the place!
We had escaped from an accommodation disaster near Vilanculos, and so arrived a day early. The casita that we had booked was not available for that night, but the friendly receptionist offered us a casa at the cheaper rate of the casita. What a wonderful welcome!
Our little casa was just perfect, with beautiful views across the bay from the upstairs bedroom and balcony. It was well equipped and maintained, and serviced every day. The grounds are meticulously maintained, with little gazebo's dotting the cliff which overlooks the bay.
Resort facilities include a lovely swimming pool, bar area (with pool table, darts and other drinking paraphernalia) and restaurant. Food and beverage prices are very reasonable, and food in general seems to be good. Unfortunately the king prawns that I had been dying to have were overcooked, but the rest of our stay was so perfect that it hardly mattered.
The ace of this resort must be the staff - from the very energetic and hands-on manager (pity I can't recall his name now) to the receptionist, guards and the cleaning ladies.
Our reason for staying here in the first place was to go diving with Scuba Galaxy, the on-site dive shop. Unfortunately heavy winds kept us out of the water. But judging by the way the resort is run, I feel confident that the diving matches the general high standards here.
This little gem exceeded my expectations in every respect. If I ever had the opportunity, I would go back in a heart beat!
