Casa Rex in Vilankulo Nov 11, 2009
The Casa Rex is a great little inn in a beautiful garden looking out over the Indian Ocean. The rooms were really pretty - not luxurious but very nicely appointed and clean. My room had its own balcony overlooking the sea. There's a beautiful garden and pool at the back, overlooking the sea, and a small path down to the beach. I really enjoyed the restaurant, and the view is incredible. The food was delicious, but a bit on the expensive side. It did get a little boring looking at the same menu for several nights - but there aren't a great deal of other options in town. Life doesn't get much better than sitting in their pool and looking out across the garden to the ocean. This area of Vilankulo also felt very safe for tourists.
The place is run by a couple (Eva and Mel) who really take care of the place and keep it well manicured. If you ask for something, the staff is usually happy to help out if they can, and seem to know pretty much all you'll need about the area. The only complaint I heard about from some of my colleagues who were staying in the courtyard rooms was the noise. These rooms are adjacent to a local bar and I guess it gets kind of loud over the weekends.
The Bazaruto archipelago is the draw of this place; it seems everyone except our group was here for that. Rates here are fairly high if you don’t get some sort of a discount.
