We spent an amazing week starting from the January 4, 2009!
Taking into account the place, the hotel is very good! It is located in a wonderful Andilana beach. Actually there are two beaches: one is very quite and is ideal for romantic stay together, the other one is with animation. Sea is amazing! Staffs (both Italians and Malagasy) are very friendly and funny. All the day there are different animation programs and sport activities (volleyball, canoe etc), evenings are colored by shows and piano bar music.
Food is typically Italian, quality is good. The hotel has its own territory. On the territory of the hotel they have 4 crocodiles and wonderful tortoise (he is 125 years old!) which brings lots of joy to children and big Italian guys (children by default:) The territory of the hotel is very safe. They even do anti malaria treatment of the territory. There are different types of excursions: to the island around, to the forest on Nosy Be and to the fisherman village where you can feed lemurs from your hand!!! They have a diving school as well. We tried to dive in parco marino (Nosy Tanikely) and saw murena, sea turtle and scat!!! There is also 4 days excursion to the north of Madagaskar. Unfortunately we didn’t have time for it, but we decided to do it next time when we come back!
People leaving in Nosy Be are very poor but not noise like in some other poor countries. I was shocked when they asked to give them a little bit of soup or shampoo when we will leave. Also they are asking for shoes and backpacks for their children so of you can, you could leave something for them because they are very nice!
So I do recommend this hotel for families with children, for couples for romantic vacations! The place is amazing!!!
