We had a great time at Casa Rex. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. Excellent food, especially the lobster! Perfect getaway, very secluded and quiet. Would definitely stay here again on our next trip.

The hotel provides spacious rooms split in smaller units in a well kept garden with two swimming pools. Here you are on top of the Indian Ocean and can enjoy a magnificent view over it. But being on the top requires you on the other hand to climb down some stairs to get to the beach. Like everywhere on Africa's...

Our family room was comfortable and opened out onto the lovely lush gardens and amazing views across the sea. The hotel organised two excellent boat trips to the islands too. We felt very well looked after and didn't...

Where can I start. A wonderful hotel with beautiful views. The hotel is a lovely old Portugese style building that has been perfectly positioned on a hill overlooking the bay, looking out to the islands. The rooms are wonderful, light and breezy with sweeping views out over the brilliant blue water. The restaurant, which serves simply exquisite food, along with...

Very good value for money. We got a big upstairs room with a great view, nice balcony and nice breeze. Setting is serene and welcoming. They served good food which was very decently priced. They were very helpful in arranging activities for us. They offered free wifi which was helpful, though it would go off sometimes. Special thanks to Jill...

We stayed here for 6 nights in August. The room was lovely and the hotel was perfectly located close to the beach. The best thing about this hotel was the food, prepared to an excellent standard with great variety, and reasonably priced. Would love to go back some day.

Just come home home from a wonderful stay at the Casa Rex...the location was superb, a few steps away from the beach, yet there were also two swimming pools and ample room to use the sun beds. My room was large and very comfortable with a balcony looking over the gardens. Every evening the room was prepared and made cosy....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As you arrive at Casa Rex Boutique Hotel, you will instantly feel at peace - surrounded by the lush gardens overlooking the turquoise crystal blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Our room types are spacious & comfortable, each with an individual style and breezy perspective of the bay. Wireless internet access is found throughout the hotel for your convenience & for business traffic, we have conference facilities. The lounge and dining area, with custom crafted wood furniture and fittings and large sofas will make you feel right at home.... Casa Rex is renowned for its excellent open air a la carte restaurant, including a magnificent array of fresh seafood dishes and imported wines, many guests like to try the crisp local beer. A range of activities are available from Casa Rex including scuba diving and snorkeling at magnificent world renowned sites. Unbelievable deep sea fishing is most popular here & one has the opportunity to fish multiple areas around and past the islands. Go on an island dhow safari, or visit the islands - Bazaruto, Benguerra, Margaruque & Santa Carolina - by motorized boat. Or try your hand at the exhilarating kite surfing, with kiting safaris for the more experienced. Whale watching is best from August to October, and sunset cruises in traditional dhows a favorite with most holiday-makers . If you want a change from being on and in the water, try horse riding along the beach. Explore the local market, schools and visit the various craft shops for a taste of the local culture. After an active day, relax with Spa treatments from our visiting therapists, sip sundowners on the Casa Rex terrace or refresh yourself in one of our 2 sparkling swimming pools overlooking the harbor - the perfect way to end a day.....or begin one! ... more   less
