“Place to meet fellow travellers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

I stayed at chez tranquilllle for couple of nights. Would have liked to stay longer, but was fully booked. It’s clean cheap and best part of all; you meet fellow travellers to exchange tips. Staff is amazing, and jointly run by husband and wife, who are wonderful and very accommodating even for strict vegetarian like me!!!!!.
Trip to lighthouse is must (Whole day!!!!!) Boat trip + Food + climbed top of the lighthouses + close interaction with lemurs + geology of the surrounding areas for the price of (two/three MacDonald’s happy meals- (obviously depending on your country) I liked it so much I went twice!!!!!.
The other trip I went, (four hours drive by 4X4) 3 days and 2nights was one of the awesome experience. (Can’t recall the name, but we camped side of the river, went to the caves, the water fall, Etc but for me the highlight of the trips was walk to the fishing villages, took awesome photos).
My advice is even if you staying in different hotel go have breakfast there, and speak to the owners who speak okish English, but honest and genuine guy, to get best out of your trip in Madagascar.

Have been visiting Majunga for six years and since I discovered Tranquilllle - there is a sad story behind the four 'llll's - I have only stayed there. Very nice atmosphere. The staff are helpful and welcoming. The 'patron', it is true, can get noisy sometimes but it can be part of the charm!

I stayed here for 5 nights and wanted to stay even longer! The staff are incredibly friendly, the pool is very clean, the rooms are fairly priced, cheap for the quality. The food is great but a bit pricey. Nice not to have to leave though. The location is a bit out of the bustling town center, so great if you want quiet. Quite near the boardwalk to grab a brochette, and only a short cab ride to the center to do what you like.

If you're looking for an excellent value hotel in Majunga, I can highly recommend Chez Tranquilllle located about 100m from the famous baobab tree (on the road towards the lighthouse). Beautiful swimming pool, comfortable clean rooms, friendly staff, very peaceful, excellent food, fantastic value for money (32,000 Ariary / $16 for a double room with en-suite, 39,000 / $20 for a triple room with en-suite)
