Guest reviews for Southern Sun Maputo

3 out of 5

business or pleasure

just arrived from Florida needing a warm break from jo'burgs weather! The hotel photographed well, on the beach ""not really useable, dirty water"" with pool - ""Freezing"". all prices in dollars, all I can say is this is an excellent ""business"" hotel, and actual staying guests, not on expenses are regarded as secondary. Prices in US dollars, don't come here on a budget! friendly small resturant 3 minutes down the road, ""Vista Mar"" 50% cheaper for pretty good food.
