We recently spent 2 weeks at this beautiful resort to attend a family wedding. There are not enough words to describe how truly wonderful this place is! From the time we got there to the time we left, there was nothing negative to be had. The casas are very spacious, clean and are well equipped. We loved sitting on the...

We spent 1 week here where some friends of ours got married. The lodges are very spacious and comfortable, housekeeping services great too. The lodges at the front overlook a lush green lawn and shaded by the magnificent tress, above all they overlook the Ocean with amazing views. The restaurant serves up great food with a variety of choice to...

We stayed there for two weeks over Christmas and New Year and had a fantastic time. Staying in a casa in the front row gives you a broad grassy area shaded by big trees. Great for evening braais (barbecues). It is, essentially, self catering. We were able to get most of what we needed in Vilanculos and some members of...

This resort has everything. It is secure, beautiful, spacious and has excellent service as well as a good restaurant and pub. The beach front chalets overlook the bay with access to beach via a short road down which is locked at night. The chalets are big and very comfortable. Service and support is impeccable.

We stayed for 4 days with our 3 children at the resort and this was definitely too short. Lots of things to do and see around the resort, which is beautifully located just near the ocean. Stunning views, nice bar and pool and friendly staff. We are animal lovers and enjoyed the company of the dogs, who are so very...

Reviewed 23 July 2016 via mobile

Beautiful and well maintained grounds. Very secure. The accommodation is clean and extremely spacious. The restaurant/bar/swimming pool area has an awesome view. The food is outstanding. Especially the seafood and the pasta. Strongly recommended place to stay. On the down side it's a bit expensive - accommodation is charged in USD.

Our stay at the resort was amazing. Big, spacious and beautiful casas with lovely sea views. The staff and Pricilla are very friendly and nothing is to much to ask. We enjoyed the self-catering options with our kids and then to also enjoy a great meal at the restaurant. We loved the bar and the swimming pool.
