Royal Sakalava is in the middle of nowhere, and if you do not have car transport at your disposal, you are reliant on eating all meals at their restaurant. There appears to be two classes of cabins with the better ones set on the breach. The others are set back further but we did not find this to be a... More

If you are interested in kite or wind surfing, this is the easiest and best place you can have around Diego. The area is quiet and but the bungalows are basic - good enough for a calm journey. It is not a luxury resort. Your advantage is to have a huge beach and good waves in some period of the... More

Definitely the best choice in the Sakalava Bay (about 20km East of Diego). The bungalows are clean and nice; and the bed comfy; and right on the beach; with the kitesurf rental shop and lessons onsite. The restaurant is pretty good too, a nice choice of malagasy and internationsl dishes with of course a fresh seafood specialty; i saw the... More

I came for the first time to Royal Sakalava in august 2012, at the end of a trip of a whole month discovering Madagascar. I had reserved only for about ten days, but the place had so much pleased me that I had convinced myself to return there in 2013. I had thus planned to stay there this summer for... More

bungalows are very basic at sakalava, but they are directly on the beach (although there are some concrete ones at the back) in a very beautiful bay. perfect for kiting as there were many of them there. maybe the bungalows are a little bit too basic for the money they ask for, but it is a good place to stay...

We just had one night here to use as a base to see the local sights. For this it was perfect. Yes it is down a rough sandy track but your driver will have no problem with this. We liked the Bungalows with lovely beach/sea views. Yes they may be a bit run down but everything worked and considering the... More

No, no, no! There is no reason to stay at this place. First, it is located about 20kms from Diego Suarez, the last 5kms are down a rough dirt/sand road. There is nothing else around this property, which means you are basically captive here. When I arrived (with a reservation and voucher booked through a tour company), they did not... More
