I stayed here for 3 nights last week. Great locaton, only a 50 metre walk from the beach and if your not into swiming in the ocean they have a great pool with a bar. The rooms were very clean and modern. The restaurant is also great and the owner Bruno is really helpful with tips and hints on what... More

We traveled to Vilanculos in mid Augustus 2013 we were planning to stay 2 nights in self catering units and 2 nights camping, on the first day we arrived at Vilanculos we ate something at zombie cucumber, and there was just something special about the place, so we decided to stay over there instead of camping. It turned out to... More

The place has a fairly nice atmosphere but is not very well maintained and the service is poor. The managers are particularly unhelpful when it comes to helping travellers which is really very needed in Mozambique as getting around is not so easy. - we got the impression they had no clue about local matters and were only interested in...

We stayed at Zombie Cucumber for a week, and enjoyed quite a lot. Got a nice discount for the long stay (bargaining before booking is very advisable). The pool is nice, the room (we got a double room overlooking the pool) is recently built and the owners help a lot with excursions or recommending things to do. The restaurant is... More

I stayed three nights in one of the bungalows - and had a great time. This is exactly the type of medium prized accomodation I am looking for when I travel on my own. A place to hang out and meet nice people.

We stayed for one night at Zombie Cucumber and would recommend it highly. We stayed in one of the cheaper rooms but it was still very nice, clean and safe, and there is a bar area where you can sit outside and have some of their delicious food or a cocktail. The location is very convenient, too.

We were well received by the nice couple from Zombie. The bungalows are good value for money and the whole lodge is a very nice area to be! We had all the meals in the restaurant and very well served as well. The bar is a get together place where you could find people coming from the surrounding places. It's... More
