“Well i must say that The Beach Village is such a great place to stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2011

I stayed at the Beach Village for a month, it was hard to leave. The manager is very hospitable and nothing was too much trouble. The staff became part of my family and I can't wait to return to see them all again. I LOVE MOZAMBIQUE and the fact that Vilanculos is a small place and when you stay there you feel that you are living the true Mozambiquan style

Room Tip: Just do yourself a favour and check out this place I am sure you will not be disappointed. Happy tr...

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2011

Myself and a friend stayed here for 2 nights towords the end of our trip in Mozambique. The Manager Terrick was genuinely attentive to all of our needs. He recommened several activities that ended up being spectacular. The place is quiet, secure, relaxing. They have Wifi throughout the compound and a internet cafe if you didnt bring your laptop. The restaurant is good and bar is as well. The place is literally on the beach, with a nice well maintained pool as the centerpeice of the property. Will definetely stay here again.

This was a great backpackers place for the money! The view and close proximity to the beach was great. The service was friendly and went beyond what they had to do. Having a pool was a nice thing in case you didn't want to swim in the ocean. The only negatives is that it is still in the construction stage. It will be nicer once they finish the bathrooms and showers providing hot water and privacy. Storage areas for luggage are in the plans as well as self catering area. Lawn/pool furniture would be a great addition, especially on the porch area that overlooks the ocean! I loved it there! It does have internet for a fee.

Room Tip: Some dorm rooms have a double size lower bunk.

The Beach village is one of the newest places to stay in Vilanculos, and though they advertise as a backpackers, the place is MUCH more than one would expect from a typical backpackers in Moz. The en-suite chalets are spacious and comfortable with a huge bathroom, lots of windows, mosquito net and a fan. All the en-suite chalets face the pool and have a great view of the beach. The staff are welcoming and friendly, and the beach bar is the perfect place to have a few beers and chat with whoever walks in from the beach. The restaurant is very well priced and the quality of the food was always exceptional, although make sure to order at least an hour before you plan to eat! Any island trips/diving/activities can very easily be organised by the manager without you having to lift a finger.

We walked all over Vilanculos to find the best place to stay -- value, setting, safety, etc. Beach Village was better than all the other backpackers! Safe, clean, right on the beach. Fabulous!

This place is rocks. I love the Beach Village backpackers for it has the best location and it is absolutely luxury at backpacker rates.
The food is great and the staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about traveling in Africa.
Tours can be arranged from the travel desk.
The internet wifi and internet cafe is fast and affordable.
We stayed in the double rooms which i found to be the best night sleep I have had on my two months of traveling Africa.
The chef prepares great meals and the prices are not too bad.

Room Tip: Book in advance.

This backpackers just opened, so the installations are in a very good state.
A lot of other backpackers would be envious, the view is exceptional.
It offers a restaurant, but guests can also cook. The cookers are good (also fish of the day).
Romms are big, moskito protection is installed. It's also possible to give clothes to wash.
In short, a great place to stay!
