Lovely hotel Greta Smart, South Africa

This is a lovely hotel with very nice rooms, and good clean linen and bathroom facilities. We had a lovely view over the bay. The pool area is also very nice with great views for sundowners.

This was the third time I stayed at the Cardoso Hotel. I travel to Maputo every fourth night and stay at different venues. Regretably I will not stay at the Cardoso again. The beautiful view was spoilt be the dirt and cigarette butts on top of the outside balcony. The rooms were dusted but not cleaned. We had breakfast in the Fiamma restaurant, the tray used to grill the eggs was an absolute disgrace. This was not not cleaned for a long time. The following day this tray was still not cleaned. (I took photos of the tray) The chef was not even disturbed with my reaction. If the front look like this I can only imagine what the back kitchen looked like. Therefore I can not recommend to any one to stay at the Cardoso Hotel.

The stay was good, and the staff was helpful and friendly. We didn't encounter any problems and the breakfast was awesome. Getting an iron was a bit difficult and on our last day we ended up wearing clothes that were not ironed. I would recommend it.
