Maputo, Mozambique

I had a wonderful stay in Montebelo Indy Maputo Congress Hotel. It is like living in a nice and quite village in the major city Maputo.
Although the gym and the pool were closed due to Covid restrictions, the hotel succeeded in maintaining some part of their entertainment program: they have a very nice SPA and professional hairdresser services with friendly personnel.
Following the Covid measures: I was very comfortable with their hygene policy and the way they put this in practice. Their hygene standards are comparable with or even higher than the ones of a 5 star hotel in Maputo.
The hotel also maintains a high level of security, the rooms are nice and well maintained and the breakfast was very good.
In short: if I would ever return to Maputo I book again a room in this hotel.

Nice infrastructures, rooms are good but service from reception is terrible
Never seen an hotel where you have to carry your luggage by yourself to the room that is far away from reception... Same when checking out. Also recurrent key issue... had to walk back and forth to the reception from my room as the key was never working. Also ladies at the reception can't put a smile on...

In the far Maputo lies a hotel organized by villas where you can enjoy the warm autumn and a delicious sun almost in the middle of the city but nearby the sea at the same time. Excellent service. Quiet secure and well organized

NEVER AGAIN!! This hotel charges $99-$135 per night and does not maintain their locks properly. I was LOCKED OUT of my room overnight because the lock had stopped working (flat battery), so I couldn’t spend the night in my own paid room with my clothes, toiletries etc.

I had a flight to catch early the next morning and it still was not fixed!! I was only let back in 10 minutes before my taxi for the airport arrived!! So stressful!

When I told the manager he sat there very condescending and patronisingly offered me a future hotel voucher and said “you still slept at the property”. What use is that when I couldn’t shower, brush my teeth or put on clean clothes?!!! What use is a voucher when I’m never coming back to Mozambique again?!!! And I sure as hell would never stay in that hotel again if that’s how they treat their guests, particularly female travellers... it’s disgusting. This is NOT ok, I would NOT recommend staying here.

Positive aspects: great location, great care with mosquitos (malaria), recreation area, spa and gym well and newly equiped.
Negative aspects: It was by far my worst experience in a Hotel in my life. I was staying with my wife and the hot water shower worked only in the first bath. I took a cold shower several times, even after conplains the problem was not fixed during our stay. Our room was without lights for about 4 or 5 times, the staff was not able to solve it during our stay. Nobody answered for sure what happened.
The room service was a joke. Delays up to one hour with frequent errors of plates, forgetting cutlery, glasses, etc.. Even asking the same plate to the same room several days the problem persisted.
The Staff has not received proper training in my opinion. Repeatedly entered the room even with the warning signal of "Do Not Disturb" or even with the key locked.
There is security all over but they had never stopped my car in the entrance gate to check which room I was staying or been asked for my card to make sure that I was a guest.
Checking Out was a great and sad episode. When I told that I would like to make the check out, the front desk said that they could not do it because it was before the reservation date (???). To solve the problem wrote a letter saying that I would not stay there anymore. The bill had several undue expenditure and the staff could not explain what it was but didn't fixed it saying that they were in their system for a reason.
Well, I would never get close to the hotel again. It's amazing how bad it can get paying more than USD 300 a day.

I've stayed ten days in Girassol Indy Hotel and I was disappointed with the overall stay. The positive aspects will be the location and outside gardens of the complex which are well kept. Negativelly, I didn't liked the rooms and the cleaning. The fact that the rooms have a door directly to the outside doesn't help. For instance, I had a small gecko on the wall of the room that has been there during several days. Not that I would very impressed with that, but it's something you shouldn't have on your hotel room wall.I've not stayed in other hotels in Maputo, however I heard that comparatively to others it's not a bad choice.

Stayed here for one night during a visit to maputo. Villa room away from check in. Attendant gave a ride on a golf cart. Same in morning when leaving. Room was dated but adequate. King bed was two singles together. Not very comfy. Breakfast in morning was fine, not amazing but was adequate for getting the day started. In town again would stay as not many other choices there and was fine

I stayed during a business trip with the company doing the booking. The hotel was clean and comfortable with a nice gym and a decent restaurant.
The service at the front desk was however slow and inefficient - for example, when I came back after a couple of days up country, they could not find the booking I had made prior to leaving (fortunately there were rooms available).

Food is good, swimming pool and spa really good. Service needs to be improved a little, staff appeared to be lethargic but overall experience was really pleasant. Weekend or business hours, they greet with smile and try to offer you the best!

Our daily meetings were in the Convention Centre, so I found very convenient to in this hotel. I like more this type of hotel (more horzontal developped than vertical. To have a chance to walk to the restaurant instead of using an elevator.
Rooms are big enough and cleaned every day. Garden was beautiful and relaxing, pool was just ok.
Food in the restaurant was good.
See view was missing, but all in all is a good hotel.
