The staff was friendly and welcoming. I loved everything about the place.
No tv in the room
This is a special place. In a country where many simple things are just not easily available. This requires excellent management. Quite some places had to give up but the management of the beach lodge is outstanding. They make this place a great paradise where almost everything works. We had the family suite, 52 steps up the hill with nice view. Good breakfast, very friendly and experienced staff. Nice beach, clean. Pool, lawn with some nice chairs to sit on. Great place to watch the sunrise (rising over sea and pool). Good lunch and dinner, though I would suggest to also try the local places downtown for a real expierence. Very safe. Take a tuk tuk back. We hired somebody to drive us to the red dunes and walked back (5 km). Nice. Did a boat tour to Benguerra and Bazaruto. Nice islands, white sand, dunes and reef. Good for snorkeling and scuba diving. I believe though, that staying in Vilanculos is the better option compared to staying on an island. You can explore the market in Vilanculos, the dunes, downtown, restaurants. Just more options.
Immigration is not easy. Just takes time and cash for the Visa. 50 USD or 45 EUR. If you already have a visa, you will still have to queue with everybody else. But once done, 20 mins transfer and paradise is waiting.
Fantastic place with great facilities, super professional and friendly staff ! The experience was beyond our expectations !
The location, the shower on the lodge, good quality bed. Peri peri chicken excellent
Slight smell of damp in the room. It is a humid climate but could have been sorted or masked temporarily with perfume smell. Layout of basin area poor and shower shelves at head height did help and lastly basin plug was temperamental and not fixed after reporting it. Lastly getting a cup of tea for breakfast is inefficient. Just bring a pot of hot water and a small jug of milk to the table sorts it. These are tips to make things better rather than major gripes
The property is located in a great position with a huge desert beach and blue sea. In the afternoon you can see the fisherman coming back and it is really nice. The room was nice and comfortable and the staff was friendly. If you are having dinner at the restaurant we definitely recommend the Fish Platter.
