The Casa Rex hotel is a small charming hotel near the beach in Vilanculos. For those looking to avoid the steep prices of the hotels on the Islands of the coast, I highly recommend this location. The hotel has a lovely view of the beach with a set of stairs leading down to the beach. The rooms were quite large with a balcony view of the ocean, what more could one ask for! The hotel restaurant serves a lovey breakfast and dinner is also a good option. The staff at the hotel were always extremely gracious and accommodating. We recommend a Dhow trip to the Bazaruto archipelago - the whitest sand I have seen! Otherwise, mostly enjoy relaxing on the beach in peace and quiet. I have been in Vilanculos twice now for holidays - the first time was over Christmas and the second shortly after the Easter holidays. In both situations, I found the beaches to be far less occupied than those in Europe.
