We didn't stay at Zombie (we were camping and Zombie doesn't offer that option) but we went there for drinks on our first night and met the owner Bruno. He was so kind and gave us great tips on Velankulos and on the Bazaruto island trip. He offered us to chill at the pool the next few days and even...

5 stars NOT based on the Beverly Hills ratings but in the middle of Africa this is probably as good as it gets. Great accommodation, Brilliant service. Elizabeth the hostess and her team leave you wanting for nothing. They really do make your stay welcome. All the reviews said to try their pizza and they did not disappoint. Simple pizzas...

Just spent 5 days at Zombie Cucumber/Casa Jules. Superb food - chef did magnificent king fish on the braai. Stuffed crabs were first class. Pizza oven produces delicious pizzas. Staff are all highly trained, service is excellent and hosts Bruno and Valerie make it an unforgettable stay.

Try the yummy wood fired pizza! The service was very quick (a massive bonus in Vilankulo when traveling with two children under 4!) The restaurant overlooks a beautiful garden and swimming pool. Don't let the name put you off!

We enjoyed 5 nights at this peaceful hideaway last month. The staff are very attentive and polite, rooms are super clean and beds are excellent. Pizzas are an obvious choice for dinner in the bread oven and the bar is well stocked. The swimming pool is awesome and lit at night. Aimed towards couples and backpackers (8 person dorm is...

We were looking for somewhere to have dinner near our hotel - and decided on this place famous for their pizzas. The atmosphere was great.. Typical Mozambique chillaxed. The service was also very good, they let me do a half and half with my pizza, they also showed me cut-outs for the two sizes they do. They use a wood-fired...

This was a really relaxed and quiet place to stay. Close to the beach and the town centre. Great staff. The owners are very friendly and helpful (and were very obliging while I was unwell for 2 days). They arranged boat trips for me to the islands. The bar/restaurant is a great place to hang out by the pool.

This little oasis is quaint, secluded and full of character! Good accommodation, nice pool,bar and patio area. Food is good and well priced for the traveller who checks their pockets The couple who are the host and hostess are extremely obliging and will assist with all the guests requirements. Just a shirt walk from the ocean and the village

Very cosy and nice guest house. We were picked up, and dropped at the airport again at departure. Easy to arrange events, as they have good contacts. Close walking distance to the centre, the beach is very close - but one has to go to the islands to swim/snorkel.

We stayed in the dorms for a couple of nights and were so happy with the place. It has a great and calm vibe and the owners are very nice. The place also has a pool and a great restaurant (although a bit expensive!). The staff is also very helpful with day trips and buses.
