We sent our dates and paid for the accommodation, then the day we were leaving she said we can only come the next day. While looking for another play she messaged me stating she will cancel our booking. We were left stranded in a foreign country. Dont book here

The landlord single handedly ruined our entire Mozambique experience. Firstly the entire place is infested with mosquitos, there is no privacy se would just enter our place with no warning not even a knock on the door, she took most of our cutlery after the first time we had guest over for breakfast, there was no hot water for the first 5 nights of our stay, you aren't allowed to plug in your own fans, we made flap Jack's one morning and when we returned later the afternoon she took the mixer we used as well despite the fact that we cleaned it afterwards and when we raised some of the issues with her she took the remotes for the TV. Overall a horrible experience would not recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday. Great views tho.

Should have trusted my gut when I read the bad reviews.
We were still on our way to Tofo when Graca sent a message requesting we pay the remaining amount in Meticals because this would benefit her... our deposit was paid in Rands. We booked through booking.com and didn't expect that. Meaning it will cost us more as we would now have to withdraw a large amount in a foreign country at an ATM .
To get to Mar-me-quer you will have to drive in 4x4, which is not a problem as we knew that, but the bushes next to the sand road are overgrown and will scratch the hell out of your vehicle ( we also lost a mud flap on our 4x4)
As previously stated in reviews... No privacy, she will enter your room when how she sees fit, because as she states: this is her home and she built the place. We arrived in Tofo When we arrived for check-in after a 11 hour drive and requesting an early check-in, they were still cleaning (excuse was the rain the previous day). We are not difficult guests so we went to lunch to give them some time. Returned and was given a tour... the tv not working, the stacker doors literally falls out if opened, no hot water (because of solar), Going to the beach is climbing down dunes and back (no real beach as the waves break against the dunes, wouldn't recommend trying to swim there), beach riddled with plastic and waste. The hot tub seen in the photos we were filling with water (cold by the way), it takes forever so we went down look around a bit. We returned only to have the hot tub's water closed half filled, meaning she entered our room and decided this was enough. First night we noticed huge gaps everywhere meaning mosquitos galore. The ceiling fan makes an unbearable noise (so good luck with a good nights sleep).
Next morning we are sitting at a restaurant and she messages us that she has confirmed that we have a camping fridge (12V), which has now drained her solar system and she has unplugged it, which means once again she was in our room to snoop around. We let her now that it is not a problem and that she can leave it unplugged. We get there by 15H30 thinking we are going to take a nice nap and long behold they are in our room still gardener/ maintenance guy is also in there cleaning and rearranging our stuff (This is a problem as I am not comfortable with a man rearranging my clothes etc. Once again not her fault (maid is sick). Long story short I leave the room, my husband loses his patience and a argument ensues. He tells her that if this keeps on we will be checking out the next morning to which she replies: If you want to check out, then check out. Which would benefit her we already paid the deposit for the 7 days and have only stayed one night. We decide to go into town to look for alternative accommodation and find the most stunning place at Liquid dive adventures with very friendly competent staff. Half the price with breakfast included.
Went back to Mar Me Quer packed our stuff and left. Our holiday was almost ruined by this place...
She has since updated our booking on Booking.com to one night only, and we are not able to review on Booking.com either.
PLEASE DON'T BOOK HERE!!
She will probably reply with some excuses and accusations...believe what you will at your own expense.
