Vista Do Mar
Reviewed 17 August 2015

From the time we arrived until our rather sad departure we were made to feel special. Schantal and Gys are great hosts and the staff are warm and welcoming. The rooms are top class and views out of this world. And the food .. wow .. no need to consider eating anywhere else. Truly great value for money. We'll be back and can confidently recommend Vista do Mar to anyone visiting Barra, Inhambane.

Room Tip: All rooms have great ocean views, but upstairs (no. 4) is special.

We had a wonderful few days at Vista do Mar! As soon as you walk in, the view of the ocean is breathtaking. The deck space is comfortable and allows you to enjoy the beauty of the beach without getting too much sun. The room was clean and comfortable and had a magnificent view of the ocean. The meals (breakfast and dinner) were excellent. We also had fun playing pool and darts in the great room. Vista do Mar is also located within easy walking distance of several other lodges that offer food and drinks, when you are in the mood for a little more variety. Overall an excellent and highly relaxing vacation! We sincerely hope we are able to return in the future.

Room Tip: Second floor is better, but either would be lovely!

We stayed at Vista Do Mar for a week and had a brilliant time. The accommodation was perfect, our room was clean, spacious and modern with power showers, whilst the lodge had a rustic 'look' and fitted into it's beach location nicely.
The hosts couldn't do enough for us, food was wonderful and the whole environment and service they provided was ideal for a holiday to relax and take in the amazing views from the upper decking area.
Would definitely recommend Vista Do Mar for a relaxing holiday away from it all, for good food and peace and quiet. We hope to go back soon.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the upper decking for the best views of the sea and beach.

Vista do mar is situated right on the beach with fgood views of the ocean.We stayed there for 2 amazing nights just relaxing.The manager Jonathan and the rest of the staff were so helpful.We had the best prawns and crayfish on our first night which was nicely prepared by their chef and since it was my birthday they offered me a complementary birthday cake!The rooms are nicely decorated and spacious and we choose the one with a tub.Breakfast was so delicious prepared and we could have it on the lower deck.Keep up the good service.Will definately come back

Room Tip: Roomsd on the upper level have got a good view.The ones with the tub are also nicer.
