The place is nice, and we were the only ones there. On a first glimpse, the place is fabulous but when you look into little details, you then realize, it needs some upgrading as it starts to look old and run down. There tile around the pool is dangerous and you have to be carefull not to cut yourself. It... More

Alright, I'm usually not the type to write bad reviews unless they are warranted. I can usually look over the minor shortcomings of a hotel and see the positive, but there were simply too many glaring issues I had with this establishment. To begin with, upon choosing to stay here, the hotel requested that I put a deposit down. I... More

Beautiful location, very remote so perfect for complete peace and relaxation. Food was fantastic and the team are incredibly helpful. Thy excursion to Santa Carolina was really good and the island itself beautiful. If you are looking for a complete escape, for sleeping, sun and good food this is the place to go.

Having travelled 10km along a dirt track we didn't think we could turn around and leave immediately after seeing the "campsite" offered by this place. Campers are stuck out the back where they have to trudge through black, dirty sand and gnawed dog bones. Otherwise the place looks very luxurious. Upon closer inspection we found that you had to wear... More

Unfortunely, due to some personal incidents, we could not stay in this lodge, but Javier was very kind and helpful in every question we asked him! We are looking forward to staying at yours next time! Thank you so much Javier! See you next time!

Stayed here in July 6 nights. The only disappointing thing was the swimming pool. The water was very cold but this depands of the winter time we think. The rooms were very nice except the beds. For us too hard. Excursions are expensive but very nice and you cannot do something else. We loved the food and that makes the... More

We were lucky enough to spend a night at Villas do Indico while on a two day trip to Bazaruto. The rooms are wonderful, tastefully decorated, comfortable and spotless, of course. The bathroom was delightful. We enjoyed a great dinner served by lamplight by the swimming pool, lots of delicious cocktails and loved every moment we spent there. I would... More

A small but beautiful lodge. Nicely decorated and with an excelent staff that really makes you feel good. The new management does everything to please the client. The price is within the Mozambique level, and consider that, compared to other lodges, the price is ok for the quality and service. The only problem is the access road where you need... More

We drove to Villas do Indico from Harare, Zimbabwe. The lodge is about 20-30 mins from the center of Vilanculos town and requires a solid 4x4 vehicle because the sandy road is very difficult to maintain traction on otherwise. Upon arrival the management and staff were very personable and the rooms were clean and comfortable with a sense of privacy.... More
