  Overnight at Smugglers
(South Africa)   Mrs Lowry 20 January 2010
Our overnight stay at Smugglers was great. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The beautiful pools and shady gardens were a welcome relief from the heat. The food was outstanding by Mozambique standards and there was a great variety of dishes. The room was comfortable. Other than that a wonderful stop over.
