Our stay at Archipelago Resort was absolutely great. Superb facility, very good food and a special mention to the utterly helpful staff. Priscilla, the manager, has been great, going the extra mile to organise things for us and also helping sorting out a tricky passport situation. We will definitely come back and recommend Archipelago for families who want some independence - thanks to the self catering villas - but also the ability to enjoy all the perks of an hotel. All this a stone trhow away from Vilanculos, allowing one to avoid the most busy and touristy beaches.

Hats off to Priscilla and the team! My family had an absolute blast. Everything from the food, the views, the accommodation, the staff it was amazing ! I tried everything on the menu and it was delicious, look out for Priscilla's legendary curry, something to die for! Peace and tranquility with beautiful horse riding in the ocean, boat trips to the surrounding islands, snorkeling on the two mile reef! Canoeing in the wetlands! Heaven on Earth! Keep up the good work Archipelago (Vilanculo), we will definitely be back for more!

We have just had the most wonderful 8 days at The Archipelago Resort. The positioning of the hotel is wonderful...easy access from the Airport and a breath-taking right-on-the-beach sea view. Nothing is too much trouble for all staff . Thank you so much Archipelago Resort...we will be back.

Nothing beats this exquisite family-friendly place. Beautifully appointed casas (chalets), well equipped and amazing views. Superb pool-side restaurant and bar on site with phenomenal sea views. This is a must for any beach lovers to soak up the Beauty, swim in a tropical sea and have an abundance of activities available right on site.
