Beautiful location and views out onto the ocean! Good food and friendly service. The rooms were tidy and clean, though the bathroom needed some maintenance.

This is a small property with only 15 rooms and we loved it! We were there just before "the season" started, so they were in the process of sprucing it up while we were there. The staff and service was friendly and helpful. The view and the grounds were beautiful. The 2 swimming pools and the proximity to the beach and town were real pluses. The only issue was the lack of hot water in the bathroom: it took a very long time of running the shower/taps before you received hot water and with the water shortages in southern Africa, I wasn't willing to waste that much water. Luckily, the weather was perfect and hot showers weren't necessary. The restaurant food and service was top notch. I would gladly recommend this property to everybody!

Elegantly casual hotel with very good food, a great view and conveniently located near the town center. Check-in was smooth; check-out a little bumpy but all worked out well in the end!

6/10 Good

We selected this hotel because it said “boutique” hotel, but this hotel did not live up to these standards. The rooms need renovation, the staff working in the restaurant needs customer service training at a level that one expects to find in a 4 star boutique hotel.

Great Weekend Away
We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary at Casa Rex. Paulo, Sophia and the Team were extremely accommodating to ensuring that we had a great time!!! They recommended and encouraged many activities and restaurants within the area and without any hesitation! Their staff were always smiling and always wanted to do things! It's a fantastic setting with great food and facilities!! I would recommend to anyone wanting to relax!
