This is a great hotel - the previous reviews have said it all, really, but I would underscore the biggest advantages (in my mind), which are value, cleanliness, food, and service.
- This isn't a backpackers hostel, so you wouldn't expect to pay backpacker prices, but I think the price is very fair.
- The hotel is impeccably clean, despite being in nearly untouched natural surroundings which could easily take over if were not diligently maintained.
- The food is EXCELLENT; best seafood I've had in ages, all incredibly fresh and based on what's available that day. Highlights for us were some perfectly cooked lobster and crab. I salivate just remembering it.
- Every member of the staff is charming and helpful - great job all around.

The cons, as stated in other reviews, are the cost of food and the distance from town, which could be undesirable for travelers looking to socialize/party, or those on a strict budget. That said, we would stay here again!

Room Tip: We stayed in a deluxe suite. Every room appears quiet, but some are more removed from the beach than others; would recommend choosing one that is closest to the beach.

We loved this beautiful place on the beach! We enjoyed the hospitality of management and staff, the beauty of the environment, the beach, the archipelago, the food and the wonderful, beautifully decorated rooms. Good service, nice and clean and in a peaceful setting 10 kms outside town.

We came for a restful beach holiday and got exactly what we wished for. We certainly would like to come back some time

We spent a week of our honeymoon at Villas, and we couldn't have been happier. Beautiful rooms, stunning location, incredible pool, and the friendliest service you could wish for. And the food! We had 4 course feasts every night that we will remember for many years to come...

A really really special place, all the more special for the fact that it's miles away from town! Also the perfect place to stay while doing a Sailaway Dhow Safari - which they can organise for you. Highly highly recommended.

Loved it, and can't wait to go back once the spa is built!

We had an amazing stay at Villas do Indico. The rooms were clean, comfortable and private and the remaining of the resort was peaceful and relaxing. What a rest! Most of all, the owners were extremely helpful and nice, and really did everything possible to ensure that our stay was perfect.
On the downside of things, the resort is 10km out of Vilanculos (which we were not told), down a dirt road that even our low clearance 4x4 couldn't take. Which means you have to rely on the owners to drive you to town (for excursions, schopping etc) and that you have no option but to eat at the restaurant of the resort... where the food is delicious but a bit pricey!

Room Tip: The renovated rooms have more light and new bathrm
