Pretty nice place near the park. It was wonderful to hit the pool after the day's exertions. It was also wonderful to sit beside the pool and drink another Three Horses Beer. The food was perfectly acceptable. The rooms were comfy and there were no scorpions under my pillow.

Really this would be a 3.5 but hey tripadvisor does not let me. So in the context of Madagascar and the location this is a 4. The location is perfect for visiting the Tsingy which are a stunning limestone area. Very close to the park entrance. Also amazing lemurs viewing in the national park. The rooms - I think our...

Although our first room was rather small and cramped, we were moved to one of the larger bungalows which was much more roomy and comfortable. There is a sitting area outside back and front of each one as well. The pool is great for cooling down after trekking through the forest and visiting the tsingy and meals are eaten around... More

This property is located just outside Ankarana Park making it an ideal location for a visit to see the Tsingy. The pool is lovely after a hot day in the park Meals are served around the pool. Food is very good and reasonably priced We stayed for 2 nights and the room was comfortable and clean Whilst the lodge has... More

Atmosphere: After reading some of the previous reviews, we were somewhat anxious about our stay here before we arrived. It turned to be just fine. This is not high-end, like Iharana, but for what it is we were pleased. We got a friendly welcome, the staff were always available and did their best to be helpful. Good location very close... More

We enjoyed our stay at Ankarana Lodge and it is very convenient for the National Park. Our room was clean and comfortable and simply but adequately furnished. 3 big pluses were the 24/7 electricity, the evening air conditioning and constant hot water in the shower. There are patio doors and sitting areas outside at both the front and the back... More

Very nice lodge near Ankarana Park entrance, down 1km drive so peaceful setting. Very welcoming, good food, refreshing pool, and nice rooms. Run by owner of King de la Piste, who we toured with and had a very good guide in Maurice. Visited Mt Ambre, which is a must-do in the north - leaf-tailed and micro geckos, sanford lemurs, ring...

Our group of 12 travelers were caught in the Air Madagascar strike late June, early July 2015. All flights were cancelled to Diego Suarez so our group traveled two days by road to Antsiranana. We were welcomed warmly by the staff. Our rooms were clean, with private bathrooms, and air conditioned. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner here -- meals... More

The lodge is basic but comfortable, and the staff are helpful and friendly. Our group arrived after dark, and it was a little difficult to find the rooms. The meals were pretty good but not memorable, and they have a little display that serves as a gift shop. The restaurant had no rest room. This is more like a cabin... More

Stayed here on a long journey through the north of Madagascar in 2014... Quality was ok/basic but one must be mindful of the how the locals exist - so excellent by comparison The pool was a nice refresher! The restaurant was very basic; however, Madagascar is an adventurers destination! So make the most if it!!
