We spent 3 nights with Wayne & Jo in June 2013. This is long for us ! we normally only spend 1 night anywhere ! Lovely place ! Lovely people ! Reasonable price. I would recommend Neptunes Lodge to anybody looking for a relaxing holiday in a brilliant setting with fantastic hosts and the best prawn meal that I had anywhere in Mozambique ! We happened to be there on the occasion of Neptunes first anniversary party which was festive affair ! You cannot go wrong here !
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Owner run, self-catering casitas & one of the most popular beach bars in Barra; Neptune’s Lodge & Beach Bar offers a friendly, island style vibe just steps away from the clear, warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Always a hub of activity with ‘Barra Reef Divers’ and ‘Walk On Water’ on-site who boast an array of activities to suit all; ranging from diving, whale shark safari, snorkeling with sea horses to kayaking through the unique Mangroves & surf lessons. Neptune’s rustic beach bar specialises in the local, delicious Mozambican cuisine as well as your seafood favourites. Our awesome Jumbo prawns & crab curry (bought fresh from the beach) are a popular choice, of course with a generous splash of the famous ‘peri peri’For any excuse owners Wayne & Jo are known for lighting an impromptu bonfire on the beach along with a drumming session and local singers (quite the characters!) An awesome way to spend an evening in Mozambique, soaking up the atmosphere under a perfect starry sky with a local Tipo Tinto Rum or three!Our homely casitas (small houses) have all you need for the perfect beach holiday. Nestled just over a small dune from the beach bar they are all personally decorated and furnished with a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and private braai area. If you are lucky enough you can spot the odd breaching whale from your stoep and to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean is something else!Thankfully we don’t have a bustling mall close by or a tar road with traffic lights but to us this is paradise. If you, like us enjoy the simple things in life, colorful &friendly people, breathtaking beaches and a slow, relaxed pace of life we are sure that you too will have found your piece of BARRADISE! ... more less
