Duna Branca in Barra, Mozambique has 3 bedroom (8 sleeper) self-catering houses from R3,200 per night. Situated on the Beach

Duna Branca in Barra, Mozambique is a popular choice for holiday-makers, sunny skies, palm-fringed beaches and soothing warm waters.

Accommodation at Duna Branca comprises very comfortable self-catering 8 sleeper chalets. The chalets comprise 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen (fully equipped for 8 guests), spacious living area and an outdoor deck.

Service: Good (housekeeping)
Friendliness: Good (housekeeping)
Cleanliness: Average
Facilities: Bad
Overall: Fair

The unit needs general maintenance.  2 of the 3 toilets were leaking. The room with the single beds was missing a curtain and had a broken door lock. Light bulbs need to be replaced. The air con remote did not work. Missing windows. Housekeeping was friendly and helpful and the sea view was amazing.

I hope the owners of the unit will look into the general maintenace of the unit.
