Everything works, but is essentially rather rudimentary. Our mattresses were very thin and allowed for a rather hard sleep ! Cutlery and crockery left a lot to be desired though. We borrowed wine glasses from the restaurant next door (which by the way is a very nice place to spend time and eat delicious prawns)! let's hope the renovations that have been ongoing for some time is soon completed, and the challenges Covid presents passes to allow...

We will never stay there again or recommend it to anyone. I would recommend that you check out the place. I had to rate this to submit it. Which is not good as they should get nothing.

A delicious meal at Sapphire Sands Restaurant with very generous portions. Happily lent us a corkscrew. Slept like babies. Waking with the sun to see whales frollicking close to shore - lots of them. A simple breakfast - bought some fresh bread just down the road and made coffee that we brought with us - while enjoying the view. Then a stroll on the beach and our own frollicking in the surf. The sea not as cold as expected. More whale watching and then into town for some shopping, lunch and back to Maputo. A fantastic, simple,...
