Pros: Had a lovely 4 nights here.... slept, read, lay in the sun, walked the beach...this place is isolated on a lovely stretch of beach. If you’re looking for nightlife and hustle and bustle... this is not the place for you. I had the privilege of having XAVIER look after me and he was perfect... smiley, happy, caring, professional and super helpful! Thanks, XAVIER for looking after me! The beds are comfortable, and my room was kept super clean each day. The menu was right for me.... delicious and healthy!
Cons: Nothing
Excellent 9.6
Pros: great hospitality, especially xavier; pool and beach area like paradise
Cons: camping abulitions in good state but not great - but were cleaned several times a day
Excellent 10.0
Pros: A little piece of heaven! John was incredible made our stay so personalized and such detail to great service. We loved our stayed it was perfect for a relaxing break while soaking up the sun!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Lets start with this - YOU NEED A 4X4 VEHICLE TO GET HERE!!! No ifs, no buts, if you choose to drive yourself there you will not get there without one. Once you do get there though you will just be blown away by the location, the greetings and just everything. When you check in you are greeted with a much needed drink, and assigned your own helper for the duration of your stay, I had the absolute pleasure of Xavier. An exceptional host who genuinely wants your stay to be the best it could be, his willingness to help, his local knowledge and general air of happiness are a joy to behold - a wonderful asset to the whole establishment. This does not mean the other staff are any less professional, they are all genuinely willing to help and are honestly the most pleasant crew of people I have ever seen within the hospitality industry ( I stay at least 100 nights per year in hotels across the world). The food is tremendous, this is seafood heaven ( and why not?). Don't expect your burger/pizza/hot dog straight out of the freezer rubbish, this menu is fresh, and I mean fresh. Each night you can sit at different tables around the hotel grounds if you choose, next to the pool, next to the sea, within the gardens or around the fire pit, the choice is yours and please do vary your tables, you won't regret it. Breakfast is generally taken by the pool but of you wish to do so you can eat on your own room porch area. During the day I lounged by the pool getting total relaxation, plenty of room in or out of the sun, again, your choice. On one of the days I went on a boat trip ( all organised by Xavier) and it was just outstanding. A short 30 mins or so boat ride across the sea you get to your first stop where you drop of the chef and all the equipment needed for cooking lunch, then you take a short hop across to another island to see the dunes (sand hills), words cannot describe the beauty so I won't bother - just go and see for yourself.
Cons: I loved it all - actually ran out of letters to finish off what I was saying.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The location is great (you can swim right in front of the lodge, unlike in other lodges in Vilankulos) and the staff was super friendly. We had dietary restrictions and they were very careful with all our meals. They were also very flexible in accommodating our check in and check out times.
Cons: Breakfast was a bit disappointing (you pay extra for it, but they ask for yet another extra charge for eggs or yogurt), and the downside of being in such as peaceful and secluded location is that you kind of have to eat here all your meals and the value for money at the restaurant is not great. The lodge can only be reached with a 4x4 and the transfer price is also quite high.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: The location is absolutely a paradise. The hospitality is great. Especially the dinner sites. It is a romantic scenery. With children is also perfect. And you must take the excursion to the archipelago (100 dollar pp), with a fantastic lunch. Not cheap, but a experience to never forget.
Cons: The road is -even with a 4x4- bad. Real bad. With a 4x4 you can do it, but is hard working. The food is relatively expensive, the rooms are not expensive.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: A very pleasant and well-managed hotel. We stopped here with the whole family (two adults and two small children) for three nights and we are very happy with this choice. The bungalows are comfortable and clean, the dishes in the hotel restaurant are tasty and in addition the hotel has its own motorboat and organizes trips to the islands. This is the last point of the long line of beach hotels in Vilankulos, so you can easily walk around and see villages of local farmers and fishermen within a short distance and observe their live.
Excellent 9.6
Cons: Little paradise.friendly staff
Okay 4.2
Pros: The view and setting is great: right on the beach, blue water and palm trees.. dreamy! The hall appearance of the hotel seems amazing. When the weather is sunny the place is a dream (but when the weather does not shine upon you, like in our case, its kinda boring...) A massage service was offered and was great, the pool is nice and the food in the restaurant is also nice.
Cons: First, the room: lighting is weak and the room is kinda dark. The room constantly smells like sewage, twice we had ants and other insects coming up from 2 different holes in the bathroom. We took the Deluxe double room which the hotel indicated has a double bed (which is perfectly logical for a "deluxe double room", and also logical for us for being a couple) but surprisingly they just took 2 twin beds and put them together - wasn't comfortable at all. Breakfast: included in the price of the Deluxe double room is a "continental" breakfast. Which only consists bread, butter, croissant, jam, plate of fruits, 3 slices of ham and cheese, juice and coffee. No eggs, no bacon, no vegetables. If you wish to "upgrade" your breakfast to something a bit more satisfying you will pay aprox. 400-500 MZN. Staff: 2 first days we received a very weird and sarcastic approach from the guy who's "in charge" of you, the last 2 days he was perfectly fine. Overall experience: we were deeply disappointed from Villas Do Indico, the price they charge is high and the value you receive back is very low, we will never go back.
Good 7.5
Pros: Our host, Xavier was particularly friendly, helpful and attentive. He made our stay very enjoyable. The accommodation is very relaxing with a lovely pool overlooking the beach and sea. If you want to just chill out, it is a great spot.
Cons: The accommodation was a 15minute drive outside of the town and was only accessible by a 4x4. This meant you had to use the hotel's transportation which was very expensive. $10 USD each way per person to the town/airport. As the accommodation is out of town, you also end up eating in the on site restaurant. Food was nice but double the price of restaurants in the town. Our stay ended up being more expensive than planned. The manager of the property also informed us that our flight back to Maputo had been pushed forward by 2 hours and that we had to leave earlier than arranged. Our driver then told us that our flight had not changed but that he had to pick up other guests and it was easier to do a round trip. This meant we were at the airport almost 4 hours before our flight! We would have understood if this was explained to us but were very frustrated that we were mislead by the manager.

Mediocre 2.9
Pros: I didn’t like anything about this place. It’s like a trap, far away from everything.
Cons: Despite the fact that our beach bungalow had been already paid in advance, when we arrived (earlier than the expected time of arrival) it had been given to somebody else. No WiFi in the room. Very rude staff.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great location, good atmosphere and fabulous activities to fulfill the unforgettable days we spent there. But I must say I met the most fantastic staff ever. Thank you Matilde. You are one of a kind. Best wishes from Hugo e Raquel
Cons: Can’t say anything!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: I loved the unique furniture and personal touches. The location cannot be matched. Short walk from my bungalow to the beach where the tide is either far in or far out. I love being able to swim without waves. There’s kite surfing next door too. Maybe I’ll try it next time. As for the prawns, delicious. Best I’ve had in years. I’ll be back.
Cons: Hard to say. I suppose the WiFi could have been better.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great location, beautiful beach, staff helpful and kind. Will especially remember Raul. He took us on a tour through the city on his own time, free of charge.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The staff was caring and efficient...helpful and friendly! The bedrooms very large with air conditioning that worked! Beautiful location with lovely beach.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The charming owner Bob runs this intimate, casual, one in a million place. IF : A spacious comfortably furnished bungalow right on the beach, a casual local bar, a restaurant with truly fantastic a la carte food and a relaxed friendly vibe are top priorities then you’re in the right place…..it has a pool too., and the rooms have good wi fi, a desk, fridge lots of comfortable chairs inside and on their verandas and all is very reasonably priced ( for Mozambique ) IF : luxury “ Resort”with a big pool, landscaped gardens, boring buffets, trendy decor and a fancy reception desk with uniformed staff? is more your thing,? well this is probably not for you. It’s casual, it’s a touch on the scruffy side, but give me that anytime in preference to big impersonal places with no atmosphere or soul and where you could be anywhere in the world. When deciding where to stay in Vilanculo I nearly made the mistake of opting for the top advertised “ Beach Lodge” but after carefully reading ALL the reviews I decided on Casa Cabana and I am very glad I did, especially after I walked up the beach to the other “Lodge” one day for lunch, I didn’t even stay for lunch the place was so boring… Bob has created a wonderful little gem here and long may it last because this type of place is fast dying out everywhere and being replaced by boring characterless ‘Resorts”
Cons: I bit of gardening wouldn't go amiss.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Staff were great , very friendly. Restaurant and bar plus pool were fantastic as well.
Cons: The wifi was up and down and had to go to certain locations on the property to get signal however not a major issue.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Best accommodation in Moz by far. Good staff, clean and organized.
Excellent 9.2
Pros: The house ai just at the beach. Great stay with friendly people there. Good kite surfing school
Cons: Menu could have more options but still ok
Okay 4.6
Pros: It is THE only property on the beach. The beach is ok but not fantastic. You have to take a boat out to the other islands to get the dream beaches you arrived for.
Cons: It is THE only property on the beach. A beach with massive high and low tide differences. Being the only place on the beach, it means it gets packed from lunchtime onwards, and you can wait up to 2 hours for your food! It can get rowdy in the afternoons as well, as ppl sit there and drink. I can not recommend it. The sun sets behind the hills as early as 5pm. We had booked a premium room with seaview and were terribly disappointed upon arrival. For what they are charging it was outragous! We asked to be moved to a beach bungalow that we got for 40% less of the price, STILL feeling that we were paying through the nose for something that DID NOT match our expectations. There are no other places to eat or drink on the beach. It was a bit dirty. I would actually not recommend anyone to visit Vilanculous. And if you still do, choose a hotel that is further away from the town (there is nothing to see or do there anyway, and no restaurants to go to) that has more amenities, is newer and of higher standard. I cannot recommend this place at all.

Excellent 8.8
Pros: Best Hostel in Moçambique. It contains everything one could need: it has a bar & restaurant, swimming pool, very plesant outdoor areas, shop for essentials and one can open a personal tab and pay at the end.
Cons: There are minor organizational issues but management is quite effective at ensuring that all runs as smoothly as possible.

Pros: The place is a very good budget option in vilankulus and it is nicely located! Overall we had a pleasant stay and the staff was really nice and helped us to arrange our diving trip! The security was always so kind opening the back gate for us to drive close to our room.
Cons: The food wasn’t good. The pizza especially was very disappointing! We had a curry and the grilled fish and we weren’t impressed by those either. We didn’t have breakfast but I think that looked nicer.
Good 7.9
Pros: People were very friendly, very nice food and good location
Cons: Some mosquitos in the room! Also I had to ask for a kettle as not all the rooms have it.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: It's directly on the beach, beautiful garden. Our hut was tiny but cute and for the money totally fine! Our bed was made for us every day and fresh sheets every second day. The showers were next to the hut and always clean and there was always hot water for the shower. Staff was very nice and helpful! The wifi was free and was good.
Cons: Can't say anything negative

Pros: Breakfast was absolutely delicious at Casa Babi....wonderful homemade bread, scones, muffins accompanied by homemade jams...papaya & ginger, baobab, passion fruit, fresh pineapple juice and of course, a great selection of eggs and more!! However, this was just the beginning as all meals were beautifully prepared, creatively put together and delicious!! Casa Babi exceeded all our expectations on every level - it was a hugely welcoming and interesting experience! Sabrina and Deny are perfect hosts, and great people! Their team of staff were extremely pleasant, attentive, efficient and not obtrusive!! Casa Babi is right on the beach and has its own dive centre (finely equipped) next door (with qualified instructors) - trip to Bazaruto Archipelago a must...

Good 6.5
Pros: The staff were amazing, as was the location and the food
Cons: No hot water - even after they sent a technician to fix it. The room was spacious however the bathroom is badly in need of a revamp. There was very little "value for money" when it came to the room!
Excellent 8.3
Pros: The location is amazing, with stunning views. The staff is friendly and efficient. The food is great, with a great variety, including for vegetarians. The prices are very affordable. Transfer to the airport is free. The list of activities to keep guests entertained is quite good.
Cons: Unfortunately the hotel keeps strict hours for meals and closes the kitchen and public spaces rather early (at 9 PM). We also asked for an extra blanket and they could not give us, because the laundry was already closed when we asked. We would suggest that every room had extra blankets, just in case it is needed (even if most days are warm). It would also be good if the hotel provided parasols and towels for guests to enjoy the beach (even at a cost), which currently it does not. We also thought the lighting in the leisure area of the rooms was too low (we stayed in the courtyard rooms on the ground floor). This could be improved with a floor lamp. Finally, the water in the shower in one of our rooms did not warm properly. People had to bathe in the bathtub. Also some of the lights were not functioning in the bathroom. On a positive note, before check out someone came to check if everything in the room was functioning well.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: The tranquility and peacefulness at the venue was just what I needed. The friendliness of the staff and the management at Casa Rex was very welcoming.

Excellent 9.6
Pros: Large room with a terrace!! The property was great with a fabulous location, staff, and restaurant.
Cons: The water in the shower never got hot....it was lukewarm at best. Also they probably should upgrade to place TV’s in the rooms to add additional value. Overall however, excellent place!

Excellent 8.8
Pros: Great location, close to town centre. They make a great pizza. They also own a restaurant {Daytime only} about 5 minutes walk which has good food and is right on beach, and very friendly/helpfull staff. Take a cultural trip with Castro. Very informative and worth the trip. Some great local restaurants (Leopoldinas and Zitas) within 15 to 20 minutes walk. Safe to walk at night. Odysea dive within walking distance.
Cons: Beaches are better on the northern side of town. No windows in garden bungalows ,not really an issue as you spend very little time in room. Noisy fan, didn't need it as it was winter but would be an issue in summer.
Excellent 8.3
Pros: The place is lovely and the French/Belgian owners take pride in the place. The staff are friendly and obliging, and the food very nice
Cons: We had to ask for a mosquito net which I think should be mandatory in a malaria area, and there were no curious on the outdoor furniture. The beachfront was FULL of broken glass, very dangerous for running kids (and adults!). I feel it's the owners 'back yard' they should have a hand in cleaning up. It was significant enough to not go back to that bay again
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Wonderful staff and managers, very nice place to stay near downtown Vilankulo!
Cons: Nothing
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The location is great, 50 m from the beach. It's quiet. The place is beautiful and Well maintained. We slept in the chalets, very confortable and decorated with good taste. Attention To details is everywhere and made our stay very enjoyable. The staff was very Nice and helpful. The food was excellent. Plus, the owners also have a restaurant 100m away from Casa Jules with good food and amazing location, right on the beach
Okay 5.8
Pros: Palm trees
Cons: We were charged upfront for five days accomodation only to find out on day four that the owner rented out our room to somone else therefore we had to vaccate our room one day early. All in all she gave us some conflicting stories which didnt sound genuine. Very inconsiderate and disrespectfull act. When it comes to the surrounding area its filty and pretty much dodgy. There are tons of litter everywhere and doesns of broken beer bottles at the beach. One need to be extra careful not to get badly cut. Wouldnt go to Vilankulos ever again.
Excellent 8.3
Pros: The chalets were very charming, the property was beautiful and the staff are super nice and helpful. Also they have really good lobster on the menu at the bar restaurant!
Cons: Our chalet was at the far end of the compound which meant we had zero wifi and had to go to the pool area to get a signal. Also the external bathrooms were very charming, but when it is cold and windy, it can become a bit of a challenge to take a shower!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Casa Jules is the perfect breakaway spot where you can relax and take in the atmosphere of the beautiful Mozambique. Our hosts Bruno and Valerie were absolutely amazing in every way. Staff are excellent and go out of there way to make each moment perfect. Best seafood and pizzas in town by far. We can’t wait to go back
Okay 5.4
Pros: Nice staff in general; both the restaurant and its pool are fine. Indeed the restaurant it’s probably the most outstanding element of this sort of boutique hotel
Cons: The location is bad -very close to a disco that it’s playing crazy loud music until 4 or 5 am (!) The chalets are probably too small and the place has no aircon which becomes as an issue in the warm nights
Excellent 8.3
Pros: Great food in the restaurant. Helpful staff, clean room and great wifi.
Cons: The fans didn't work very well and the ventilation in the room wasn't great.
Excellent 9.2
Pros: -Value for money! -Lovely hosts that’ll help you in everyway they can. -Nice restaurant with fun animation (music) on some nights. (Take the seafood platter!!!) -We loved the local tour organised by one of the staff (Castro) -Near the center where you can experience the local market and some local restaurants. -Near the water for some amazing views!

Good 7.9
Pros: We recieved breakfast at our room that was fresh and well prepared. They cleaned everyday and this is a perfect budget stay as the room was spacious and clean.
Cons: Don't have a sea view... But on the beach front. There is one restaurant close by as the Lodge dont have one currently meaning we had to go out each day. Wifi only worked at reception.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: A great place to stay close to the beach. Very quiet, beautiful gardens. Air conditioning and Missie nets. Fabulous breakfast. The staff go out if their way to help you. They can organise tuk tuks and day trips.Close to walk to restaurant bars and cafe. About 20 minutes walk to super market and other restaurants. We felt safe walking back at night. Bit far to walk from the main street at night but a short tuk tuk ride. Wi-Fi available near the office but a bit hit and miss. Loved staying at Palmerias Lodge and would definitely stay again
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Great staff,breakfast could be more buffet style beyond beverages.great place I liked the accommodation and the staff are the best part of this accommodation especially the hands on manager.no words do justice to describe their service.
Cons: Only down side is the beach access but not so bad either
Excellent 10.0
Pros: We have to commend Oswaldo and his staff (especially Oswaldo) for the job that they do. The place is beautiful and value for money. Will definitely go back! During our stay it was my husbands and my 1st wedding anniversary and my husband told this Oswaldo, after a stunning early morning walk on the beach I came back to a breakfast on our patio, then after a day out and about came back and our room was done up so beautifully by Oswaldo and his staff for our anniversary. I would highly recommend this place to any couple out there.

Pros: Really nice place to stay in Vilanculos. In front of the beach, nice little houses, very clean and tidy. Marco, the manager, was very nice to us and helped with everything he could do. He also arranged the trip to Bazaruto, which went great.
Cons: No restaurant at the moment, but not a problem since there are many options nearby.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: The best location in Vilankulo, close to the beach and few minutes from the center of Vilanculos. One of the best owners we ever found in our travels: very kind, full of suggestions for the activities on the bazaruto archipelago and much more, but very discreet and not too pressing. The place has a beautiful garden around the lovely bungalows and a swimming pool. Great!
Cons: It was all wonderful!
Excellent 8.3
Pros: Nice hotel in a qouiet place. Owners are verry kind and friendly and a marvelous kitchen

Pros: The German owner is very helpful, the place has an amazing sunrise view, and location is right in between beaches (~2km walk). Important to note this is a real backpacker place. You get what you pay for, no luxury, very simple. Good for those who travel on a budget and not good for those who need/like comforts when traveling.
Excellent 9.2
Cons: Most of the staff do not speak English, which was a bit of a problem. Luckily other travellers helped me out! The place is a little bit of a walk from the beach and town, but this isn't really an issue as it is such good value! The rooms are clean and the staff changed the sheets everyday. Wifi is only on for certain hours of the day (5pm-7am). The restaurant attached is really good, with local food for cheap prices. A lot of locals come here too. Would definitly stay here again!

Pros: Shower was good, that’s about it

Cons: No wifi
Excellent 9.6
Pros: The property was really spacious clean and really nice arranged. On the same place there is a restaurant with good prices for dinner, so it’s really nice after coming back from a long day. The host was really helpful with us when trying to figure out how to move around to other places.
Cons: The location of the property is not right on the beach, however it is within a walkable distance. Would’ve been perfect if there was WiFi available.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Everything!
Excellent 9.6
Pros: The location was amazing. It's like a million dollar view. Close to beach town.... The professional service of the owner and his crew is outstanding. Food and drinks very good and affordable.
Cons: Nothing I can remember . Except that the infinity pool is not ready yet

Mediocre 2.5
Cons: The location of this lodge showing on booking app and google maps is wrong. It shows the location in the city center but is 10 km out of Vilanculos. At the end we din't stay there because we din't have our own transport.
Okay 5.8
Pros: Friendly staff, a pool, lots of frogs and other animals at night which was nice. The location worked for me because I needed to be on the main road for unwards travels but it is not near the beach or town. A tuk-tuk is needed to go in to town. Very quiet because only one other guests was there while I visited.
Cons: I booked a tent so did not expect much but it was very disappointing for me. The tent literally only had a bed and a bed side table. The sheets had not been changed so here changes while I was waiting in the tent! The only electrical outlet in the tent did not work so I had to leave my phone and iPad to charge in the restaurant. Only one flat pillow was provided, poor simple breakfast, terrible mattress, a ton of mosquitos, no fan in the tent so it got very hot, the advertised WI-FI had to be picked up across the street from a dairy farm business. So in other words once had to sit on a step outside the farm and use their WI-FI! Terrible bed, the shared bathroom was dirty and I got locked in there because the lock was broken. No hot water in the shower, very expensive for what was offered. I booked 2 nights but checked out early. Very disappointing stay.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Environment and place is relaxing very quiet nice staff members nice swimming pool and bar
Excellent 9.6
Pros: lighting sytems outside needs to be imroved,car park needs roof

Excellent 8.3
Pros: People really nice and helping. Beautiful place in a quiet lugar but outside the city and not at the seashore (about 20/30 minutes with tuc tuc) good food!

Pros: the view
Cons: We were not informed that the restaurant was closed even upon paying the 50% deposit required, also the wifi wasnt working at all. We were told this only on the day we arrived. The towels didnt get changed everyday. There is not kettle in the room but a flask. The shower water pressure is very very low.
