Wow! This resort is truly beautiful. I appreciated the hospitality that was displayed to us. Ana Paula was willing to accommodate us when I called a day before arrival. She was warm & receptive. Paulinho was generous with his time, giving us his afternoon off to visit the dunes & to take us to places where we could buy certain requirements. The staff in general made us feel at home & very comfortable. The rooms were cleaned efficiently & on time. We enjoyed the food, which was prepared with care. The resort has 10 units but it was so peaceful. All I wanted to do was to enjoy the tranquility which the place had to offer. It was awesome to be right on the beach. I would definitely return there & I would certainly recommend it to others.

Our family spent the July 2022 holdiay here . The setting was magical. The luxury accomodation was well appointed and clean. The fact that there is only 5 chalets means that it can never be overcrowded. The staff was fantastic looked after us very well . I can certainly recommend this place . We will visit again .

Wonderful experience, the staff are amazing ( especially Alex ) the food was pricey but very good. The views are out of this world, and the beach fantastic. The only reason I give 4/5 , is bcoz the pool was not working, and the road to the resort is terrible.

Wow, from beginning to end! Stayed for 6 nights and we enjoyed every single second! Ana and Maritsa are AMAZING humans and made our stay so welcoming! Any silly thing we asked, they helped with a smile, room was clean, bed was heaven, the pool and seating around it (and on the beach) was perfect, enough shade was a good welcome from the heat, aircon rooms. The staff, Paulino, Sergio & Francis were out of this world friendly and accommodating, the chef deserves a Michelin award as well! You cannot complain about costs when you’re getting such quality and beyond fresh meals! I shed a tear when we had to leave, 10 out of 5! Thank you so much!

THIS PLACE IS NOT RELIABLE. TERRIBLE SERVICE. OK, now that I have your attention. Villa dos Índicos is not professional. As others have reviewed as well - your booking may not be secure once you have booked this place. We were four guests ready to relax for six nights, only to be told on the DAY of our arrival to Vilanculos that we did in fact _not_ have our cottage securely booked, even when we had received our booking confirmation email and booking number - without indication of further booking steps needed. Their routines are awful, and they could not have handled the situation more poorly. They could not provide any alternative solutions as other lodges were fully booked. Truly disappointing. Their communication and routines need severe do-overs, and they did not offer any form of apology.

Booked 2 rooms in a bungalow and paid for them 6 months ahead. Our stay was planned 2-5 JAN20. On 2 JAN 2 hrs before our flight from Joburg to Vilanculos, we get message from the hotel that they cannot accommodate us due to overbooking. They offered to stay at Dona Ana hotel. Since there was no time to look for alternatives, we decided to go to the destination. We were picked up by hotel driver and brought to Dona Ana hotel for one night. Rest 2 nights they found spaces at Villas do Indico. Dona Ana hotel was a horrible one with horrible location, horrible service, horrible breakfast. Our short holiday was ruined. On second day we arrived at Villas Do Indico. Very nice hotel, great location although quite secluded, you cannot go out from the hotel, lunch and dinner can be arrnaged at the hotel directly. Rooms are very authentic in african style, but there are clouds of ants everywhere. Breakfasts are very good, but juts have to ask for an omlette, otherwise what is at the tables is not enough. We tried lunch and dinner. All food and drinks are perfect. There is nice pool, shower at the pool. Access to the beach across the reef on a wooden passway. The beach is less influenced by the tide-off. As a compensation for the night at a horrible hotel Dona Ana, we were offered 60 mins massage. A good sign of care but still I cannot understand how management chose to bump off guests with two rooms confirmed and paid reservation who would stay only 3 nights....Obviously it is bad management that results in overbookings.

My partner an I came here for 7 nights as part of our hoilday. 1. Stunning surroundings. 2. Excellent food. 3. 1st class customer service. We had the most amazing time, John made our time there so special with attention to detail and 1st class customer service. The breakfast was included with the cost, and there was a little something different every day. The evening meals were tasty and John made sure our dietry requirements were catered for. Our last meal we had was the fish to share, we couldnt fault it. Our room (room 5) was extremely clean and comfortable. The owner had 2 German Shepards, which for us were the icing on the cake as we were allowed to interact with them and we loved it. I cant wait to go back. I would like to thank Everyone there for our holiday.
