On my way from Antananarivo to Tuliar (or Toliara),I was so exhausted after 1.5 day on the road that my only dream was to reach my destination and have some rest. So when the driver suggested to take a break at Le Relais de la Reine I wasn't very excited. Talk a pleasant surprise when we reached this facility. The... More

the rooms are outstanding, and the location is as well. But the food was the worst I had in Madagascar. It had very little selection, but it was bad, really bad. I would recommend you bring your own. The rooms all have patio's which have a great view.

Possibly of the finest we had in Madagascar - 'Nouvelle cuisine' if we make a simile to the worn colonial edifices. Self contained, lean and proper with fine more than basic amenities and a reference to good old standards. Communal rooms for dining and resting are convenient and salubrious. A use of space and character is made of equivalence to... More

Impossible to find a fault in this hotel. Great location (to visit Isalo and while en route from the capital but also for the beautiful surroundings of the hotel), great service, good food, pleasant atmosphere. clearly, not the most budget option but, in my view, OK rates for what you get.

The bad thing about this hotel is the heat inside the bedrooms. The rooms are extremely hot, and as there are no mosquito screens on the windows, they cannot be opened at any time in order to cool the room, at the risk of all kinds of wildlife coming in from the windows. Even without opening the windows and although... More

I arrived here after three nights camping in Andringitra NP so I was ready for some comfort and this hotel nailed it! The location is fabulous and the layout of the hotel, bungalows and swimming pool very conducive to relaxation. I heard a number of people describe this as one of the best hotels in Madagascar and I would absolutely... More

By far the best Hotel we stayed in during our trip. There is nothing but excellence here.. the rooms, the service, the food, the setting. Close to the Isola NP this hotel is set in magnificent grounds in a stunning area. This is truly five star service

Madagascar has some gems of hotels, but Relais de la Reine was exceptional in every category. Service was perfect, with kind, friendly and extremely well-trained staff. The Managers were visible and engaged with guests, and clearly cared about maintaining a very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, but with extremely high standards. The physical setting was spectacular, with short hikes in the... More

This property is one of the finest i all of the country. Situated by Isalo National Park it is a quick run into the park for wonderful treks etc. The hotel is located on very quiet grounds surrounded by desert and mountains. All has been beautifully built into the existing rocks for a natural look. Rooms are quite nice again... More

FIVE STAR There was nothing to fault on our three day stay. The hotel is owned run by a French family. The staff food accommodation, location in Isalo NP, everything about this hotel is perfect. If all hotels were run like this then it would be a better world. There was nothing too much trouble for anyone and the owner... More
