                                                  When they say this is a “one night stopover” they really mean it! It’s all one can tolerate, plus you have to pay for it....!Most people experience this place as their first Mozambique interaction. What a pity!! It’s a dump and a rip off. From the food in the restaurant, to the awful beds and bathrooms, it’s embarrassing. They cater to the bare minimum that is required, and the saddest thing is that their staff are cheerful and positive(despite the poor product offering).Travelers need to stop staying here until the owners bring the place to an acceptable level of accommodation. Never again!

                                                  We only booked for 6 night, but loved every minute of it. The resort was empty, but considering the time of month we booked, it was understandable. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We only went into town (Xai Xai) once for some groceries we couldnt find at the small shop.
