We had a fabulous time at the southern sun.. No request was too much or too small. Fabulous service, friendly staff, good food. Excellent arrangements. The rooms were comfortable, big enough for sharing and well equipped. It was a very pleasant stay and definitely a place I would go back to.

We had a beautiful stay at the Southern Sun Maputo in early November. The staff definitely contributed to the smooth running of our business trip. It was a pleasure to be treated by smiling faces at every corner; Lopes, Celso, Inoque, Lopes, Sergio, Atamazaar, Lisa, Eugenio and John deserve a special mention as they really went the extra mile to ensure our stay was comfortable and all went smoothly. We are looking so forward to our next visit.
