Archipelago has everything a holiday maker is looking for! We have been going to Archipelago for 10 years and it is still by far our most favourite holiday. We call it our second home. Arriving there is surreal. No time to unpack, but put costumes on, head into the beautiful blue sea for a swim and then onto the deck for a delicious seafood lunch! The Casas are situated high up with a full view of the sea and constant breeze and a few footsteps onto the white sandy private beach. There are beautiful walks and boat trips out to the islands and the snorkeling at 2 mile reef is magical. The restaurant offers the best food in town and the menu has a wide variety. Priscilla and her staff go out of their way to look after you and you don't want to leave when the time comes! Days are filled with swimming, snorkeling, walking, island trips, making new friendships, reading, building sandcastles, buying seafood, trips to Vilanculos town and marketing shopping! The countdown for our next trip has already begun!!…
One can only kick back and totally relax at wonderful Archipelago. It NEVER ever disappoints. Being back after these past 2 tough years was just fabulous. As always Priscilla and her amazing team looked after us with the utmost care and excellent service and welcomed us back like family. Priscilla’s paella is second to none and to eat it on an island with a cold glass of vino from the bar. Magnificent! I don’t think there is a seafood platter anywhere to match the resorts and the tiger prawns are epic. Be sure to ask about their lemon garlic sauce and prawn rissols. The casa’s are looking amazing and I love the new fresh look. You can’t beat those views from the deck, watching the dhows come in and tides change. Those incredible blues! We have been coming here for nearly 20 years and it really is the most perfect family holiday spot. We are now the “oldies” on the beach, sipping on Savanna’s reading our books under the beautiful palms but love to be part of the fun the young families have. Easter egg hunts and pizza evenings put on by the resort, sandcastle and volleyball competitions of Olympic standards, swimming across to the sandbank, seafood braais, boat trips to the islands, exceptional snorkeling at 2 mile and Margaruque, climbing the dunes on Baz, savannas, 2M, sunset swims, laughter, dancing, friendship and family. That’s what this special place is all about- all those truly good things in life. We will most definitely be back soon. 🌴🍹🏖…
We have just spent another two weeks at Archipelago Resort in Vilankulos. We have spent several weeks there over the last 20 years and each year it gets better. The view from the pool deck is stunning. The beach is the best in Vilankulos and is perfect for young ones. The options to go snorkelling at Magaruque or diving at two Mile Reef or just relaxing on the magical Bangue Island by yourselves are always there. Priscilla and her staff were excellent. The service and food at the bar and restaurant excellent as always. Prsicilla is a real star and is always prepared to assist wherever she can without complaint. Really superb holiday again . Thank you.
We have just spent 2 weeks at Archipelego resort in vilanculous, this is not our first time to the resort. Such fantastic service,staff,casas are perfect and a lovely beach with incredible island visits. Priscilla and her team make the stay a superb experience! Every one in the family’s needs are met! Great place and we will definitely be back!
A second amazing stay at Archipelago Resort, Vilanculos. From booking through to ALL arrangements at the resort they have it covered. Its strength is its value for money because of the per Casa booking. We will be returning for another Archipelago holiday.
A fabulous family resort, incredibly attentive stuff and made to feel like family. Beautiful location right on the sea front, it is a must. Wonderful restaurant in the resort, serving delicious and reasonably priced meals. There’s a dive shop facility within the premises, catering for all your activity needs
Our stay at Archipelago Resort was amazing, the view is just Fantastic (magic) !!! In a dream setting, Priscilla the 'conductor', and her team make your stay even more pleasant. The positioning of the hotel is wonderful, easy access to the beach, to everything... Our Priscilla knows everybody and always has good advice, horse riding in the ocean, boat trips to the surrounding islands, snorkeling on the two-mile reef, name it she knows...! We would love to come back (soon)!
Our stay at Archipelago Resort was absolutely great. Superb facility, very good food and a special mention to the utterly helpful staff. Priscilla, the manager, has been great, going the extra mile to organise things for us and also helping sorting out a tricky passport situation. We will definitely come back and recommend Archipelago for families who want some independence - thanks to the self catering villas - but also the ability to enjoy all the perks of an hotel. All this a stone trhow away from Vilanculos, allowing one to avoid the most busy and touristy beaches.
Hats off to Priscilla and the team! My family had an absolute blast. Everything from the food, the views, the accommodation, the staff it was amazing ! I tried everything on the menu and it was delicious, look out for Priscilla's legendary curry, something to die for! Peace and tranquility with beautiful horse riding in the ocean, boat trips to the surrounding islands, snorkeling on the two mile reef! Canoeing in the wetlands! Heaven on Earth! Keep up the good work Archipelago (Vilanculo), we will definitely be back for more!
We have just had the most wonderful 8 days at The Archipelago Resort. The positioning of the hotel is wonderful...easy access from the Airport and a breath-taking right-on-the-beach sea view. Nothing is too much trouble for all staff . Thank you so much Archipelago Resort...we will be back.
