First time to Tofo, which I must add I fell in love with immediately. Wasn't too sure about our accommodation as we just came from Fatima's in Maputo. The place was actually nothing like Maputo. The most amazing view from the bar/restaurant area. Staff was helpful, not overly friendly but helpful. There is unfortunately only one plug in the room,... More

I really enjoyed my time here. It had a really relaxing loung area in the bar although sometimes the barman played music whilst we were sleeping there but that's fair enough. We were a group of divers and we all passed out in that area. It overlooks a beautiful beach and really has good food. We ate there lots. They... More

This place is right on the beach with a great bar and friendly staff (special thanks to Tinashi!) There's a few things which need improving through - foremost is the kitchen. There's only 2 plates and barely 2 sets of cutlery.No washing up liquid so all the equipment is super gross. The staff use the kitchen too, which would be... More

Fatima's nest is a very nice place to stay but definitely has some flaws. Bad: has no place to charge your phone and camaras, one plug for a room of 12 is not enough. the wc's could be better, a bit more clean and the water less brown. And the rooms could be a bit more clean too. Good: nice... More

After reading so man bad reviews of Fatima's nest, I was a bit concerned about staying here, but my experience was much better than expected. I was a solo traveler staying in a doom, which was clean, had fans and mosquito nets. Yes it was basic and the beds bedding wasn't the most comfortable but it's what you'd expect for... More

Be aware of the very aggressive dogs on the beach next to Fatima's nest. They are attacking people on regular basis. In the last 3 days, two tourists got bitten (high risk of rabbies). Avoid their shuttle service, they don't have place for bags, but put them on the floor so that everybody has to step on them (just imagine... More

The camping site is good @ 800 Meticas per person per night but it would be the best if we can have more shades. It is 7:30 in the morning and it gets really hot in December. The location of Fatima's nest is really good to go to beach and play. The New year's eve party wasn't too bad.

This place is wildly over priced and incredibly poorly run. It's useless! The food takes 60mins for a simple dish and the bungalows are massively over priced. No one has a clue what going on. Great location but stay Stay else where in Tofo....
