Great food gem in a new developing area.
The food was just amazing here! Even though this was truly the only dining option in Catambe, Maputo, MZ, no dish disappointed us. Worth a 2 night stay, but no more unless you want to just completely relax and do nothing. Not much to do but to walk the bay. The staff is very kind with good customer service. My only con of the stay would be that the sewer smell creeps in from the bathroom. And don't take the ferry. The bridge seemed like it should be opened soon. The locals who "man" the ferry on Catambe side are rude and a nuisance -not only to foreigners, but the local merchants. They demand money to take "your belongings" off the ferry that had to be placed in the front. Put your foot down, grab your items and walk away - if you have to take the ferry.

Catembe Marvelous!
The service at Catembe was extra ordinary! The staff never seem to tire and always ready to be of service. What ever it is you need, they always offered and never frowned for a second. To be honest I didn't enjoy the breakfast. The food in the Resturant was just okay as well. I thouroughy loved how the beach is private. The pool was always clean and spacious.

Bad mgmt ruined my holiday - will never return
Shuttle booked in advance was more than 1 hour late! Didnt take me directly to hotel. Instead I had to walk to a ferry, which I had to pay extra for, and then wait at the other side for a new car that didnt arrive for until 40 minutes later. Upon arrival to my AC beach hut, I found out there wasnt any AC (+hardly any light). Nor was there any tea/coffe kettle. Asked to get another room. Got a cheaper one, but promised to get a better one the next day. During my whole stay I was still waiting for this "better" room that never materialised. No tea/coffee fac there either, although advertised. When I pointed this out, I was told to go to the restaurant. There I waited, in an empty room, for 50 mins before having my tea. I was later told there was a place in the corridor where they had a tea/coffee station. Only open 22.00-06.00? Toilet broken 3 days in a row. Had to go downstairs to the resto to get to the loo. Breakfast. Sometimes when coming down to the breakfast room it was completely deserted and no food left although within the breakfast hours. Staff in reception giving wrong information. (There are both big buses, and small minivan buses on road outside the hotel, going to the ferry! Walking takes 35-40 minutes, not 20.) No reimbursement for the diff between exp hut and cheap room. They wanted full price for the failed shuttle. And in spite of all the negative things happening, the mgmt wouldn't agree on any compensation whatsoever! Shame on management!

Our getaway
The Restaurant staff were great and accommodated all our needs. The ferry ride was also an experience as this is not something we do in ZA. I would not recommend the standard room if you don't like small spaces as it is very small. Comfortable, but small. Walks on the beech were cool as there are many different objects to inspect while walking. Once the deck in the ocean is complete I think this will be a great place to have some 2M's and see the city change to beautiful colours.
