We stayed at Casa Rex for a week during our honeymoon in August 2012 and really enjoyed it.
Gorgeous rooms, beautiful beach, and a lovely staff who were very happy to help us arrange anything we wanted to do including a day of diving at the Bazaruto Archipelago and horseback riding. Vilanculos is apparently the wind surfing capital of Africa but we didn't partake ourselves.
Breakfast was good - strongly recommend the huevos racheros - and lunch and dinner options were also very nice.
We had a beautiful, spacious room with mosquito net over the bed and a big balcony to look out to the ocean. For our honeymoon, they served us dinner one evening at the top of the stairs leading down to the beach for a more private, romantic atmosphere.
Easy access to beaches and a few restaurants on the beach which are nice and reasonably priced. Also a few restaurants inland right next to Casa Rex which were nice as well.
