I have stayed here often this year. The hotel is nice as it is rooms but spread out over the gardens. Pool area is nice to sit by and work. Reception staff are fantastic and very helpful but that is were it ends. Restaurant staff though there are many just ignore you. The food is good but there is no... More

I had stayed there for 2.5 months with family. They need to improve their customer service and room cleaning. There are better options in maputo. It seems that need to improve their management. Front desk always forget to solve issues like fixing a TV set and also the laundry service. It's very expensive to the service that they have.

The location of this hotel is in the middle of embassies and expat residences. It's close to government buildings. The rooms are quite nice, but what really makes it is that you're not in some cookie-cutter high rise luxury hotel but among gardens. I didn't make it to the gym, but it's a people from the outside come to work... More

if you get a good deal on prices on hotels.com or similar website, then this place is a comfortable place to stay for a night near the airport. However, it doesn't really seem very 4 star. buffet breakfast is good if you go early, but if you arrive a little late, the eggs are cold. the pool looks better in... More

Very nice and clean hotel on a good quiet location. Big breakfast buffet and the resort have a nice spa and gym. The pool area with bar is nice for a few hours of relax. The only downside is the staffs language skills. This big resort with a lot of business people should be able to talk better English I... More

My stay was very good because the hotel is good and the service is also excellent. I was installed in the house 19. This house has a great historical significance because it was already installed Nelson Mandela, and there were signed several peace agreements. The food is very good and the spa too.

Spent a week here a few times when in town for business. The hotel is comfortable with great internet and a great gym. It is well located in Maputo and pretty central for getting around. The Resturant leaves something to be desired but the hotel is not far from a few good restaurants. Like I said comfortable place to stay... More

A bit of a disappointment in terms of service particularly in the dining area. The rooms and reception area are satisfactory but the dining room and patio have almost non existent service with a sullen attitude from some staff. Fair value for money and gym etc on site makes it a reasonable choice for business. Food was satisfactory without being... More

When we arrived in this hotel, it was late and we spent more than one hour at the reception to process the double charge of our booking that made us completely exhausted. Therefore, our first impression about this hotel was terribly bad. Luckily, the rooms were spacious and the restaurant provided great dishes changed our bad first impression.

The Girassol Indy was a great place to stay. The hotel rooms are nice and clean, basic but they have all you need. In this case it was aircon - it was extremely hot in Mozambique and the hotel had aircon working around the clock. The layout of the hotel rooms is like a complex, so you are not on... More
