The hotel is nice, clean and the staff are friendly. The room is kept very clean and is comfortable except for a little bit of noise every now and then from the streets below (car racers especially). The Breakfast was alright with the usual stuff like eggs, bacon, bread, fruits cereals etc... The hotel is located not too far from a large shopping centre with a number of other shops. Main eating places are a few blocks away, with one or two a bit closer.
The only issues that I have with this hotel is that it is a bit too expensive for a 3 star hotel! I have stayed in 4 & 5 star hotels in Nairobi for less! Oh well... and the wi-fi is not very reliable. I bought a voucher and only managed to use internet for a few minutes the first day and couldn't again for the next 3 days until I left!... The TV had only two english channels, but they were entertaining!
I would stay there again, although I am going to try some of the small guest houses on my next trips!

For the first time arriving in Maputo on business was a culture shock to me. It is a single sprawling rubbish dump, and Girassol Indy Village offered a welcome escape, being like a well-kept little village on its own, in one of the "better" suburbs of Maputo. Unless speaking Portuguese, communication is a bit of a problem and can give rise to some dissatisfaction.

This hotel was wonderful, perfect for my boyfriend and I to rest and relax for a few days. We were both jet lagged and exhausted, and since we stayed in the beach huts, it was quiet and calm. I wouldn't stay for longer than a few days, as it would get boring, if you don't want to travel to Maputo, and the food would get repetitive. The huts were quiet, the rest of the hotel rooms seemed louder, especially on the weekend when people ? came from Maputo for a weekend party getaway.
The food in the restaurant was good, especially the fresh fish! With differing menus for lunch and dinner. The tapas bar food was really un appetizing... Not good, especially for the price. The morning breakfast was minimal, so you had to pay extra to get warm substantial food.
The staff were very helpful, accommodating, a highlight for the hotel.
The pool was nice, the beach was long and wonderful to walk on.
The room was clean, romantic, and very comfortable. We were in the high price beach huts.
This hotel is perfect for a romantic getaway for a few days, or a weekend. But there were also a lot of children/families enjoying it as well.
I would stay there again.

Hotel Cardoso has been recently refurbished and is very comfortable and smart. I was staying in Maputo mixing business and a short holiday break and this was a very good place to stay.
I would just recommend eating out - the hotel dinner is rather uninspiring, especially considering how famous Mozambique is for seafood.
Being on an economical side, the hotel provides good value for money. Restaurant on the 1st floor is a big highlight. The hotel is located in the heart of the city and well connected. I had a nice time.
