This has been my 5th time at VdM. It's once again one of my best holidays ever. Great food, aircon in rooms, excellent service. Great value for money. Basically on the beach with beautiful northern faced see view...only a few in the world. I will be back!☺

Had an excellent stay with friends. Staff and management were great, friendly and extremely accomodating. Facilities were above expectations and service comparable with any five star hotel. Will go back without a doubt. Thanks Gys and Schantal.

Great lodge with great management and friendly employees. Very comfortable rooms and the food is the best in the Inhambane Province.
Every time I visit the place it has been improved. The activities are great and the yacht trip to pansy isle land was brilliant.

We were delighted with our time at Vista do Mar - from the room right on the beach to the wonderful staff headed up by Chantelle and Gys who went out of their way to make our stay special. We definitely would like to return, but next time we would fly rather than drive. A great place to unwind

This was my 3rd visit to Vista Do Mar and sadly it has lost some of it's sparkle. The location is fabulous but we missed the small touches. Previously the sense of arrival was great, bottled water in the car when being collected from the airport, chilled facecloths upon arrival at the hotel, a welcome cocktail and a small bag of local nuts on the bed. By comparison this year we got a melted Italian chocolate on the bed. In terms of repairs and maintenance one can see that very little has been done over the past few months; the timber decking and the pool area is in need of some attention. The general cleanliness of the pool was concerning; the walls of the pool were covered in black algae. Previously the manager would personally attend to the pool area every morning, hosing down the deck, ensuring the lounger cushions were placed out and running the creepy and pool pump. There was absolutely no supervision what so ever. And I think there in lies the problem; management was only around for breakfast and again for dinner....and then only in the kitchen. There was no chance of a salad or sandwich at lunch (kitchen closed) and we all had to high-tail to neighbouring restaurants. On the positive, the staff are fantastic and it is a wonderful place to relax.

Room Tip: 1st floor away from the restaurant
