It's a perfect place to be in Inhassoro. Magnificient view over the bay of Bazaruto under lovely shady place around a fine group table. The house is self is big and has all you need. Not everything is entirely new, but the style of the building more than makes up for that.The help of the staff which come with the house is a great joy. Friendly and helpfull.We were there only for three nights but it'll stick to to our collective memories as a tropical paradise. Tip, go to Santa Carolina. And snorkel a bit.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a lovely stay at Ponta Mapalo house for three nights. It's a good location for the market and getting around Inhassoro, as well as enjoying drinks and food at some of the other nearby lodges and bars. A very reasonable price as well for staying right on the beach and having the use of a fully equipped, beautifully laid-out cottage! There is also a lovely guy, Timoteo, who speaks fluent Portuguese and English, and he is on hand to sort out anything at the house or to help with organising island trips etc. Definitely worth checking this place out if you are a couple...
