I've thought long and hard about this review. What you need to take into consideration when visiting Vilanculos is that it is not a typical beach resort destination. It is the village that time has forgotten, it is slow, needs a coat of paint and is a little 'backward'. This is why I love it, but admittedly, coming from the...

A wonderful option for those looking for an alternative to the nearby Mozambique island resorts or even for a stopover before heading out to the resorts. A beautiful location on and overlooking the channel to the Bazaruto Archipelago. Attractive rooms with wonderful views. Direct access to the beach and if you like to kite surf, there is a kite surf...

We spent 5 nights at this delightful hotel that I cannot recommend highly enough! Mel and her superstar staff are lovely, without being obtrusive, from helping my boyfriend to pump and launch his kite to peeling our stall bought pineapple, nothing was too much trouble. I asked for a birthday surprise and they organised us a private dinner on the...

When our guests enjoy themselves, go out and about and experience the advantages of our mainland position with all the added activities it offers, we are delighted. You did this and more and so were able to enjoy a truly Mozambican holiday. We thank you so much for visiting and hope that you will return. Melonie

I really enjoyed my stay at Casa Rex where I stayed for 3 nights earlier this week. Friendly staff, nice clean rooms, superb breakfast. The service has improved compared to when I used to stay there for work 2-3 years go. Thanks to Mel and her team. I was glad I came back!

Our experience before and during a six day stay at this property can probably be summed up as ‘OK’ but disconnected in most operational aspects. We booked and paid a deposit for the honeymoon suite in February for an early October stay – Less than two months before our stay we received an email from their third or fourth party...

We spent two blissful weeks at Casa Rex. Mel and Jay welcomed us as family. Mel spoilt us by giving us two lovely cottages overlooking their beautiful gardens, with awesome panoramic views of the ocean stretching out to the Archipelago islands of Bazaruto, Benguerra and Margaruque in the distance. The staff were very attentive and the chefs presented meals which...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As you arrive at Casa Rex Boutique Hotel, you will instantly feel at peace - surrounded by the lush gardens overlooking the turquoise crystal blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Our room types are spacious & comfortable, each with an individual style and breezy perspective of the bay. Wireless internet access is found throughout the hotel for your convenience & for business traffic, we have conference facilities. The lounge and dining area, with custom crafted wood furniture and fittings and large sofas will make you feel right at home.... Casa Rex is renowned for its excellent open air a la carte restaurant, including a magnificent array of fresh seafood dishes and imported wines, many guests like to try the crisp local beer. A range of activities are available from Casa Rex including scuba diving and snorkeling at magnificent world renowned sites. Unbelievable deep sea fishing is most popular here & one has the opportunity to fish multiple areas around and past the islands. Go on an island dhow safari, or visit the islands - Bazaruto, Benguerra, Margaruque & Santa Carolina - by motorized boat. Or try your hand at the exhilarating kite surfing, with kiting safaris for the more experienced. Whale watching is best from August to October, and sunset cruises in traditional dhows a favorite with most holiday-makers . If you want a change from being on and in the water, try horse riding along the beach. Explore the local market, schools and visit the various craft shops for a taste of the local culture. After an active day, relax with Spa treatments from our visiting therapists, sip sundowners on the Casa Rex terrace or refresh yourself in one of our 2 sparkling swimming pools overlooking the harbor - the perfect way to end a day.....or begin one! ... more   less
