Stayed in this little gem in April. The first thing that struck me is how welcoming it is. It is very comfortable with huge big sofas to loose yourself into. The views of the ocean are to die for. We had courtyard room no 2 which was beautifully decorated very comfortable with great mosquito nets !!!! The food is lovely... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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 More

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... More

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... More

A truly tranquil retreat where the rest of the world and all your troubles and problems in life are completely forgotten. The walk on the beach to the Point and back allows ones imagination and thoughts to run away with you. The rooms and staff , excusions to the various islands enhances this peaceful process.
