“Real colonial gem. After staying in Mozambique this was truly an extraordinary experience. Old world charm. Try to get a room with the ocean view. As swimming in the ocean is not the way to go lounging by the pool is excellent,” Patrick from Toronto, Canada posted his guest feedback on TripAdvisor.
