This is the best place to stay, with easy access to a clean and rockless part of the beach, pool, a bar right by the beach and beautiful private rooms. The staff was also really friendly so I loved staying here.

Definitely the biggest asset of the Beach Village (beside the pool shaped as the African continent) is the bar. The bar is overseing the Vilanculos beach and is one of the only one in the Vilanculos to offer such a feature. The bungalows are comfortable enough for the price and all have a moskito net. The place is well maintained...

We travelled here in August 2012 and had such a great experience. When talking to the new manageress she said she had taken over and from the old reviews I think she has really made a good difference because our trip was great. Great location and our room was basically right on the beach. The food was great and one...

The Beach VIllage is beautifully located right on the beach with lovely bungalows that have their own verandas. The best part of this accommodation was the warm atmosphere generated by the manager and staff who were extremely helpful and went above and beyond the typical duties you would expect to ensure we had a comfortable, relaxing stay in Vilanculos. The...

Based on other reviews and their website, our expectations were high but we were bitterly dissapointed in the Village, particularly as it is a new development. On first arriving we were happy enough - the pool and bar overlook the beach and it's a great location to while away a few hours. That said, as the only guests there that...

Four of us stayed for 5 nights in March and it was perfect. Chalets are great, location was amazing, free wifi, pool was an absolute bonus and Clare and Quentin who were managing it were so helpful. Short walk to the market, slightly longer to the banks but tuk tuks were super cheap if needed or late at night. Bar...

“The bungalows at $80 are roomy but still without anywhere to hang clothes, and the photos are heavily beautified on the website. Probabably the only option though.”

“Just do yourself a favour and check out this place I am sure you will not be disappointed. Happy travelling, There is a pet vervet monkey who is a treat, in the month that I stayed he became like a 'son' to me, he would climb on my lap and then my shoulder and go through my hair looking for fleas. He wasn't tame when I got there but after a month he was literally like my baby.”
