Thank you for the great review! we sure appreciate it.
We stayed in a family chalet, two bedrooms, one with en-suite toilet, full bathroom with lovely shower but not too much hot water, open plan kitchen and living room, outdoor seating and barbecue. Be aware that you need to bring your own towels, even hand towels are not provided. Good air conditioning and cable tv was a plus.
Resort has a nice pool area, access to the beach and the onsite cafe/restaurant serves good food. The staff were wonderful, very helpful and courteous, they even brought our evening meal to our chalet when we were driven indoors by the mosquitoes which were ever present and plentiful during our stay. (This we were told is unusual)
Not cheap accommodation and adding food and drinks all adds up but a good place to get away to if you are in Maputo.
Thank you for the great review, we are working on the hot water and towels i can assure you. unfortunately mosquitoes are a hazard for all of Mozambique but you are correct they are normally not in a sufficient number to be a bother to anyone.
I have been in Lugar do Mar in several ocasions. On the chalets, on hotel rooms and to spend a day. The hotel rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The chalets offer comfort enough to spend a few days by the beach. But the best is the restaurant by the pool, with very good dishes. They also have a shuttle service between the ferry and the lodge, which is very helpful. Definitely my place to stay at Macaneta.
Thank you for the great review!
After beeing totally frustrated with the service in the neighboor guest house, we decided to go for a lunch in Lugar do Mar... and what a great turn over. The best dezert since I got to Mozambique (2 years). A great environment, and the couple in charge (Angela and Damion... the chef) were amazing. Thank you Damion for the special moment you provided my kids with those baloon artwork :D Keep it up and we will see you soon.
Thank you for the great review!
Well ventilated and regularly cleaned rooms and linen.
Menu doesn't offer choice and variety of food.
Shuttle services available between hotel and ferry. Accessible by all vehicles.
Wi - fi available though limited to 100mb
Thank you for the great review, we are working on the WiFi but it is a process to get a good and affordable internet connection on the Island... Hopefully we will have that sorted soonest!
Setting wise, this place it's great. The proximity to the beach is what we had hoped for. The food offered in the poolside restaurant is ok, I say this because although good it's a bit overpriced, seems they are targeting South Africans, hence charging SA prices which could be lowered to keep people from dining elsewhere. They offer a limited connection of 200mb of WiFi per person which I find rather strange, why not just make it complimentary? Last thing is security. Although I don't feel unsafe in this establishment, they don't have keys for their rooms, meaning all rooms remain open and accessible. There are also no safes in the rooms. This is a big one for me as I travel with other currencies, passports, and other valuables that I don't want to carry with me at all times in such a location. I suggest management look into this to make the set-up more friendly for the security of their guests.
Thank you for the great response, we have had challenges with getting affordable prices for food but this will be solved with the bridge that will replace the ferry as constant fuel for refrigeration will not be needed in the future. The WiFi will be sorted soon as well.
Our Resort is very safe but we take your advice to heart and will consider a safe in every room and some safety upgrades are on the horizon as well.
