Mr. Anderson "마이클/Mouse" wrote a review Apr 2022

The rooms at the Radisson was awesome, I had the apartment sea-view. Waking up to that, propping the door open to the fresh breeze was amazing. The air conditioning was good, the quality of the rooms was great. Rain shower, soft bed wide toilet, deep bathtub and breeze made the trip 75% and the great staff sealed the deal.

I would like to address Uisla, Shelia and the breakfast staff. They were A+ when it came to ensuring my breakfast was prompt and the way I like it. They took very good care of me and made my morning. I appreciate their support and to the whole staff. My only takeaway is I wish a bigger gym and more equipment. The gym got packed for a couple of weeks.

Secondly, Marlene and Jose were the reception MVPs to include Alexandria from OTC. Any of my evening issues were handled along with Jose taking the time to ensure that my needs were met. The thing about Marlene that I liked was that all I had to do was say it and I never had to worry.

Veronica, superb at her job! Ensured my second Radisson stay was 120% better than my first one.

Philamando and Rogerio from housekeeping made every time I come to my room look as if its my first day but also cozy just the way I liked it.

The overall staff was delightful, helpful and made things easy. The reason why I can point out names is because I dealt with them on a normal basis. There were some staff not mentioned that were just as great in the small experience but I have to point out the ones listed and say THANK YOU for making my stay the best Radisson Experience.

Could not have asked for a more comfortable and convenient place of stay in Maputo. The rooms on the east side have a fantastic view of the Indian Ocean and its lovely to watch the sunrise over the ocean! The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. Can easily accomodate a couple of people. The wifi connectivity and the TV channels are good. The breakfast spread is a great spread and the staff are very courteous. On arrival, if you are stuck for local currency for taxi payments etc, the reception gives you local currency against a taxi voucher which can then be billed back to your room.
The hotel is right next door to a decent mall with a theater. there is a casino within walking distance as well. One of the best and high end restaurants and lounge is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The city centre is about a 10 minute taxi drive from the hotel. A full fledged mall is about 5 minutes taxi drive from the hotel.
Overall a great location and a fantastic place to stay. Really liked the hotel.

What I liked: COVID-cautious, modern style and furnishings, natural light in the rooms with beautiful views and landscaping, multiple locations to eat, work, and meet with colleagues within the complex, and staff who went out of their way for customers. For example, I accidentally left a notebook behind at the restaurant one evening, and the reception desk flagged me the next day as I was passing by to return it. The Radisson is especially nice compared to *in my personal opinion* the darker, dated feel of the Southern Sun and gaudy, stuffy feel of the Polana.

What could be improved: Bathroom towels could be upgraded to higher quality, the current ones are stiff and scratchy, which detracts from the luxury feel.

Overall: This was an ideal place to work-from-"home" during my time in Maputo. I highly recommend it and will be looking to stay there again.

Spent two days at the Radisson Blu and enjoyed the comforts that any serious business traveller would require. Attentive staff that referred to you by name. The room was well equipped and had a magnificent view of the Maputo Bay and cityscape.

The location was ideal in that it felt close enough to the meeting places I needed to get to and yet far removed from the madding crowds! :)

We booked a 1 night stop-over for a family of 4 on our way back to South Africa after a Mozambican beach holiday. We chose the Radisson as they could assist with a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment, as opposed to 2 separate rooms which would be less appropriate for a young family.

The room was huge, the decor was modern and the beds were like clouds. The curtains block out all light so you can easily sleep in. The air-conditioning is brilliantly effective and silent. The kitchen was fully equipped for a long stay if needed. There is a guest cloak.

We had excellent room service and the included buffet breakfast was of outstanding quality and variety. The staff are proud and professional.

This hotel was such a treat between 2 days of hard travel. I would stay here again and would recommend without hesitation.

What an absolutely wonderful experience staying at this Hotel. Staff- super friendly. Rooms- spacious and comfortable (ask for east facing towards the ocean). Great gym and pool facilities too!

Location is a short 15 minute drive from the airport ( rough estimate about 7kms). Situated on the beachfront in a safe and pleasant area.

Have a meal at the Filini Restaurant and experience the superb hospitality from Team Filini- Chef Joao Macuacua, Bonguekile Mkhonza, Dercio Nhancale, Aderito Come, Alberto Francisco( barrister) and Supervisor Cheguevera Mata. What mind blowing hospitality!

Looking forward to my next stay at this hotel! If you want a 'Wow' hotel experience in Maputo, give Radisson Blu a try.

Dreadful Hotel - we got picked up at the airport in a bus far too small to accommodate everyone and their luggage, we booked months ago requesting a family room for 4 and 2 twin rooms with a sea view. The family room was a huge suite but only had 1 bed, the other rooms had small doubles, when we asked reception for another bed to be added to the room this was promised but never delivered. We then tried to order room service as at 10 all bars and restaurants were shut and we arrived late due to a flight. It was impossible to order room service no one answered the phone and when we went to reception no one seemed to know what they were doing. Also one room was in a building across the car park from all the other rooms and it did not feel safe walking over.

I am currently finishing up a 10-week stay at the Radisson Blu in Maputo, and I simply have to sing the praises of the lead waiter at the Filini Restaurant’s Breakfast Bar. This is my second visit to Maputo in two year’s time, and Elves’ professional demeanor, organization skills, and consistent delivery of 5-star service, are second to none. Elves understands the meaning of ‘added value’ and knowing his customer on an individual level. Case in point: Upon my return to Maputo after having departed some 18 months ago, I walked into the Blu Azul restaurant. There was Elves, standing at the podium. He greeted me, by name, with a sincere “Welcome Back, Ms…”. Can you just imagine! Who does that? Elves, that’s who.

This review of Elves’ talents and skills would not be complete however, without making mention of his leadership skills. Elves ‘runs the floor’ at breakfast and makes sure everything runs smoothly by seeing to it that every customer need, and his fellow waitstaff’s needs, are met. He does everything from greet guests, to assign tasks, to assist the sous chefs when needed, to making take-away boxes for guests so they can relax over a coffee. Obviously, I could go on. But suffice to say that Elves is worth his weight in any currency you care to name. I hope the Radisson Blu management team knows what they have in him, and compensates him accordingly.

Best wishes Elves, much success, and thank you for another memorable stay. Roni J.

I stayed in Las Residencias (the apartments) for a more than one year. The security and parking is excellent. Desk relations and billing good. Thanks to Isilda for professional and polite help at the front desk.

The location is very convenient with Deli, ATM, , and a shopping center all within the complex or nearby.

Special mention for the breakfast staff. The buffet is good quality and has a lot of variety. Uisla Uamusse and Victoria provided consistent, cheerful, and satisfying service each morning that made my stay at the Radisson much better.
