I came here to celebrate my birthday and had to take the buffet option on the day. While the quality of the food is reasonably good, there are just too few choices in the buffet - 6-7 dishes + desserts + salads. Some of the other hotels who charge the same rate offer more choices. I mean when something as...

Im pleased to see that since my last stay at Girassol Indy, the service has improved considerably. Airport pick up and check in were straight forward. New WiFi has been installed at the hotel and conference centre was is now very good.

Spent 3 nights. A great place for meeting. A bit outside the city centre. Though most people don't speak English, most staff were conversant and super helpful. Breakfast buffet has varieties. Had lunch buffet as group. Gym is well equipped in addition there are 3 morning group classes (Monday, Wednesday and Friday). Loved the Wednesday spinning class. There are tennis...

After having stayed in down town Maputo, I was glad to come and enjoy the cold breeze of winter up here. I was here for dinner with colleagues. The staff were very professional and the food was really good. I notice that Mozambique-ans eat almost the same food, but the taste and presentation was actually good. They allowed to give...

This hotel receives a considerable amount of its business from conferences and exhibitions so one would have thought that the hotel facilities and standards were similarly, business standard but regrettably not. No hotel driver at the airport even though I had prebooked my airport pickup; there is no desk in the room so its very difficult to do any work...

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 very nice hotel, calm and clean. Beautiful territory. However, wifi is quite expensive, which is disappointing. Quite far from the center, but taxis are available 24/7 and the surrounding areas are nice.

This was real value for money. It may not look like something but it is conveniently situated in town basic yet tastefully decorated and clean. The breakfast was nice and had a wide variety of dishes. I really enjoyed it and will come back if I can....

I stayed at the Girassol Indy hotel in the executive chalets. Very nice hotel and ground. Only complaint is the shower head was totally blocked and no water pressure, so morning showers were irritating. Good location if you have own transport, but lots of taxi's outside hotel to take you to restaurants.
