A servo is a type of motor which uses a feedback mechanism for precise control of speed and position.

A servomotor is a rotary actuator or linear actuator that allows for precise control of angular or linear position, velocity and acceleration.

It consists of a suitable motor coupled to a sensor for position feedback. It also requires a relatively sophisticated controller, often a dedicated module designed specifically for use with servomotors.
