We stayed for 9 nights with three kids in this lovely medium-sized hotel. This hotel was exactly what we wanted for our trip to Africa - clean with rooms filled with flowers on arrival, beautiful tropical garden, pool and restaurant with lovely sea-view (the hotel is just by the sea) and lots of tropical fresh fruit and seafood. There is a small coral reef between the beach and the little island across, rent a canoe and go snorkeling - you will seesome very nice and colourful fish! The tours arranged by the operator in the hotel are excellent, Antonio takes very good care of his customers. Our kids, a little bit scared by being in Africa for the first time enjoyed the hotel and the tours immensely.

We had a fantastic family holiday at this little gem of a hotel in Nosy Be. Friendly and attentive owner and staff, lovely clean and spacious air-conditioned rooms tastefully decorated with local artefacts and set in beautiful tropical gardens with a view of the ocean....the freshly pressed tropical fruit juices as well as the selection of all my favourite fruit (mangoes, litchis, pineapples and papaya) for breakfast each day was superb. The large, clean pool was a saviour and the view of the little island from the beach as well as watching sunsets at the end of each day are things we will never forget. We'll definitely recommend this hotel to friends travelling to Madagascar.

Probably one of the best rate on quality/cost in the island. Rooms are spacious , the swimming pool is great, food are excellent. The Hotel is clean in general with a wonderful garden. I enjoy most of all the sunshine near the pool every evening. As I was on business trip, the only negative side is they do not have internet and the staff is a bit slow .

Room Tip: The best ones are near the pool facing the ocean.

nice and cosy, very freindly staff, and real africa. the beach is not the best, but you will not regret because with a sail trip you are in all little islands.
We spent over 10 beautiful days, and had lots of adventure.
we will return soon.

I must say in agreement with "Donnerica" who reviewed on April 4th, having read the reviews on this hotel we very nearly didn't go but, I am so glad we did! Personally I thought it was fantastic.

Due to a delayed flights we only ended up checking it at 23:30 at night and due to previous reviews we weren't expecting any food. However upon arrival at our bungalow the table outside was neatly set with our dinner waiting inside and the necessary condiments in the fridge. (I am aware that maybe not everyone who reviewed booked in as half board ie breakfast and dinner included which is maybe why no other food was available for late arrival). We however had a great first 3 course meal at almost midnight!

We stayed there for 3 nights and did not have one bad experience. The staff were friendly and helpful. They assisted in organising a 360 tour of Nosy Be as well as renting a canoe to paddle around in. We even indulged in a full body massage one day, admittedly overpriced but fantastic none the less! As for the food, we didn't have one bad meal and didn't get food poisening once (which I see featured in a lot of previous reviews). Breakfast was buffet and consisted of bread (clearly a staple part of every meal), a large selection of fresh fruits and then a selection of pastrys and pancakes. At breakfast you select what you would like for dinner. The dinner options varied every night so it was a fairly large selction to choose from. My only negative here was that if you wanted to have crayfish/lobster in particular you would have to pay extra.

All in all we had a very good experience here :-)

We were nearly put off by the previous reviews but because of weather in Madagascar, in March, we decided to go to the North and take a chance on both. Well, nothing could have been better from the time we arrived (very late to a 3 course meal including fresh crab, waiting for us) It is now our little secret hideaway in paradise. Nobody could have done more for us. The owner Veloma was amazing. Our sea facing rooms were the best. The staff were so willing and tried so hard. There was loads to do. We loved every minute of being there.

The hotel is set in a lovely tropical setting with a pool although the water was usually cloudy. The rooms are fairly large and clean although the furniture is outdated. A mosquito net is provided and this is an essential item if you don't want to end up being bitten. The food is standard hotel set fare and outside set meal times there is no service or snack food available. If you want a drink you have to fetch it yourself. Washing up of dirty plates is done in full view of diners and is unhygenic resulting in my wife getting a severe dose of food poisoning and being confined to bed for 3 days. Sand fleas are a nuisance and we both got bitten by hundreds of them even though we sat on the pool loungers. Hotel staff were uncaring and just ignored our complaints. Unfortunately Madagascar has a general problem in that the current political upheaval has resulted in low occupancies in the hotels which in turn has caused the hotels to downscale on staff
which has resulted in poor service. Would suggest that travellers avoid this island until things have been sorted out politically.
