Height of luxury and hospitality
My aunt and I had a fantastic two nights at Southern Sun. Everything about this hotel is expertly crafted, from the decor to the restaurant menu offerings (try the famous giant prawns, signature drink R&R, and pastel de nata). Make sure to book a walking or city tour with the hotel concierge. Shout out to the lovely Odete and always available Mr. Rutherford who helped us and truly made our time in Maputo that much better.

Love the Southern Sun Maputo!
This hotel is very comfortable in a lovely location right on the sea - falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean, and waking up to sunshine and the best breakfast buffet - can't be beat! The staff are extremely helpful, kind and fun. Love it! I stayed at the Southern Sun Joburg, and the quality of the Southern Sun Maputo is much better - so if you'd be deterred by having had a transit at this hotel chain in Joburg, don't worry...

Decent but I hoped for more
It's a beautiful hotel and I appreciated the English speaking staff. On the surface, the rooms were clean. My major complaint was that I found 2 small roaches one on each bed. I should have known when I saw the bottle of bug spray in the bathroom. Being that the common areas seem reasonably popular, the sound frequently reached up to my 2nd floor room but it died down before it got too late. Given the price difference between the Southern Sun and Hotel Avenida, I would probably go back to the quieter Hotel Avenida next time.
