This is such a lovely place to stay. We had a first floor room in the small block of four rooms facing the sea. The room was simple but well designed with a king size bed and a spacious balcony with a day bed and swinging seat. Little details made a big difference - good linen, an excellent mosquito net,...

Before getting to Vilanculos, people told me it was paradise. They were right -- but it was especially wonderful at Casa Babi. First, the setting -- on a small bluff, with sandy stairs down to the beach, overlooking an active fishing village. The changing tides, the exposed sand bars, the blue of the water and the sky that merge into...

Amazing place in Vilanculos. The hotel is located right in front the beach, rooms are beautiful and have a absolutely gorgeous view. The breakfast is very very good, dinner too. Most helpful and lovely staff I ever seen. Our luggage was lost during our flight and Sabrina provided all we could need for our first day (insect repellent, sunblock). She...

Dear Dimitri, thank you very much for your very nice review. We don't have air-condition by choice (we try to have the lowest possible impact on the environment) but our guests appreciate the natural breeze and the fans inside the nets are a good help when it gets a bit too hot! We hope we'll have the pleasure to welcome...

We had a very enjoyable stay here. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and the food was a highlight!! We were fetched from the airport and taken to our next resort at no charge, very worthwhile and will stay here again.

Spent a week here waiting to do some diving. Unfortunately, due to heavy seas, that could not be but that didn't prevent me from having a lovely time visiting the islands, walking around town and generally kicking back.
