GUEST REVIEWS FOR MAR E SOL IN PONTA DO OURO, MOZAMBIQUE

Thank you for everything, we had a wonderful stay. I would rate the stay a 4 (good), there was a room where the air-conditioning was not working well and in the heat, would have been a blessing to have AC working in all the rooms. The only other thing was that the DSTV was not working in our unit and despite the technician’s attempts there was nothing that could have been done about it. It would have been great for those days where we wanted to lounge around at the house prior to starting with activities to have access to this facility. However, all in all it was a great experience.

Z. Malla, Unit 11 (April 2019)

 

 

We enjoyed our stay and the facility was perfect except for the Patio sliding door was not working properly, we reported and hoped that it will be repaired soon.

Friendliness: Excellent

Cleanliness:  Excellent

Facilities: Good

Overall:  Good to Excellent

Thanks, I’ll definitely recommend to my family and friends.

S. Maelane, Unit 29 (December 2018)

 

 

Our stay was great and we enjoyed the beach and the house we were booked (Unit 2) in though the walk was long to reach the house because our car was not a 4x4 so we had to leave our car by the reception parking.  We eventually got used to the steep walking which turned out to be our work out for the weekend but the challenge was walking up with our luggage but we were assisted by the local staff who helped carry our bags and we appreciated that.  All in all our stay way enjoyable.  We also want to thank you for allow us to extend our stay to Sunday after our incident which caused the delay in reaching the border.  We really appreciate your flexibility.  

Friendliness: Excellent - The staff members from Security, Receptionist and Cleaners were friendly, very welcoming and of assistance.

Cleanliness: Excellent - We found our house clean and fresh.  The lady responsible for cleaning our house came in on both days when we were there and she cleaned the house well.

Facilities: Excellent - Our house was fully equipped to the extent that we found everything we needed.  Maybe you can consider providing an iron, otherwise the ice maker, topped it all since we needed to load some ice in our cooler boxes which helped a lot.  We just loved the grill, fans to fend off those mosquitoes, air conditioners, your lovely furniture, bedrooms were comfortable with nice clean linen, fully fledged kitchen etc. I can go on and on.  We were satisfied

Overall:  Our house was very comfortable to stay in and that made our visit a memorable one.  We shall consider coming back to Mar e Sol in the near future and will recommend to others. 

F. Dlamini (November 2018) - Unit 2

We had a wonderful holiday and loved the house that we rented!!! In fact, we are seriously considering booking it again next year July!

Please thank the owners for letting us stay in their lovely house. We could see they have had many amazing family memories there and we feel privileged to be able to share the space.

The door going out to the deck was not able to lock, but luckily there was no trouble.

The wooden walkways in the resort needs some attention as some of the walking planks are loose/missing.

Unit 20 - Some of the furniture and the braai were broken or were not useable. Some aircon remotes were missing, no aircon in one of the bedrooms

A. Lee (January 2017)

The break was great thanks. There is a massive difference between the units at Mar e Sol.

Unit 41 was fabulous and is well equipped, including a generator for the regular power outages.

Unit 13 was not in the same class. No power regularly, no working dstv, no mosquito nets etc.

More clarity on things like what it has per specific unit would be good as the info says bring toilet paper etc. which as we enquired was not required.

We had a great stay at house 38 in Mar e Sol. The house was well equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I would suggest adding mosquito nets to the house, though. It would be great to be able to sleep with the doors and windows open instead of using the air conditioning but it just wasn’t possible with the number of mosquitoes hanging around. We would happily stay at the house again. The house is very convenient to the beach. There is a walkway from the house that passes by two more houses and then down to the beach. Very quick and easy. We also appreciated the warm water tap in the outside shower. It was a bit cool one of the days we were coming back from the beach and the kids appreciated warming up while washing the sand off.

Mar E Sol Unit 23 is a nicely appointed accommodation with spectacular views of Ponta Beach. Please note that you do have to climb many stairs to get up to the unit.

This was our second visit to Casa 11.  We had a stunning time in Ponta but sadly our accommodation was not up to scratch. When you page through the guest book (for House 11) you can see that most of these complaints have been ignored.

• Toaster doesn't work
• Braai doesn't work - gas leaks
• Blocked drains
• Wooden planks in the bathrooms rotting
• Toilet seat broken
• Shower in second bathroom only has cold running water
• Main stairs about to detach from the house
• Lights don't light up the path
• Kettle doesn't switch off after boiling
• Uncomfortable "small" beds - double beds in main bedrooms
• Only one set of house keys and difficulty locking and unlocking front door
• Door latches to rooms don't work
• Small single door fridge

These were a few of our grievances.  The Casa (House 11) absolutely requires maintenance before being advertised with any agent.  There was a comment in the guest book about UK tourists leaving on their second day to look for alternative accommodation as they felt they were lied to! This is so embarrassing as a South African/African continent citizen.

One would have to question your brand been tainted by Casa 11 and you should perhaps reconsider letting this unit out in future until all the above issues have been solved.

C. Timms (October 2016) - Unit 11

We had a lovely time in Mozambique. The chalet (Mar e Sol Unit 6) however needs some maintenance.  Most of the crockery is cracked. Insufficient crockery and serving dishes. Same for serving spoons. Showers don't work well. Electricity trips too often.

M. Navias (February 2016)  - Unit 6

The only complaint really were the staff were miserable and totally unhelpful

Thank you very much for your assistance with my booking for last week. Mar e Sol (Unit 11) was great! Very modern, clean, comfortable and close to the beach. Nice that it was serviced and had air cons!! We really enjoyed staying there and would definitely recommend it! Thanks again.

J. Preiss (October 2015) - Unit 11

Lovely place to stay at with all your requirements.  Will definitely book again for next year.
