On our way
We arrived in Mozambique at our destination to stay for only one night. Totally dissatisfied with the place that belied the advertisement, we were discussing our choices for late December! Off we sent two of the group: Check out the Polana. The rest of us calculated the unexpected extra expense. Back they arrived: Big surprise! Polana had SIX rooms! We were on our way! At the reception everything went perfectly. Porters, front desk staff were great and the room I got was everything I expected from this old lady, but for the subtle background smell of stale smoke. The bed was comfortable, but the towels old. The view, pool area etc was splendid, except for the slippery floor of pool and surround. Breakfast was substandard. Will I go back? Yes, but at the same deal, no more
Just for a quick lunch
We didn't stay at the hotel since we only had a couple of house to spare in Maputo as we were visiting one of the islands. We had lunch here only, and it was great! A vast buffet selection of all sorts.
Incredibly Beautiful Hotel
A magnificent Hotel steeped in history. Everything is immaculate, the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly, rooms are amazing, good wifi, amazing food.... just worth every penny if you're looking for a luxurious stay in Maputo whether corporate or for a holiday.
Polana Serena, Maputo
This was my third visit to the Polana Serena and it lived up to the high standards I expected. The staff are ever helpful and always get you a huge smile. For nervous travellers or woman travelling the security is the best I have seen in East Africa.
Great service, awesome food and spectacular location/view
Stayed with my team for 4 days and had one of the best experience in the hotel. The rooms are carefully designed to meet the homely experience, nice wall papers. The building was built in 1922 and gives the royal feel. Excellent spa and gym facilities, nice restaurant and service. We had an event at the hotel and it was well managed. Definitely a place to stay when visiting Maputo. Enjoy the pictures!
