We got lucky here and got an upgrade to a lake view room. Recommended. The hotel has a nice garden and the bungalow is spacious with good facilities. Nice terrace to relax after a long day in the car. The restaurant serves very nice food. Probably one of the best i had in Madagascar. Perfect location to get to the... More

We had a delightful lunch visit to the Lac Hotel Restaurant. A total surprise to us after driving through rural villages. A stunning setting, sat outside overlooking the villas next to the lake. Wished we could have stayed overnight or longer as truly lovely setting and great service.

We had a very nice 3 day stay in the train wagon in the garden. The wagon had a lovely big bedroom with a good bed, a huge bathroom and a nice little living room in the middle. The garden is great to wander around in. Unfortunately there was not much water in the lake in November, but there was... More

There are quite a few Km on bumpy tracks to get there but it’s a nice place to spend one night. It is necessary to make sure that there are rooms or bungalows available because it is often overcrowded. The gardens surrounding the main hotel are really beautiful, the bungalows above the lake are very large and comfortable, the basic... More

We came from hell after the nightmare train trip FCE and had the impression to arrive in paradise at Lac Hôtel! The bungalow was very comfy with a bottle of water in it. The food at dinner and breakfast (good omelet again!) was of quality. But the most notable attraction there is the garden and the lake of course! We... More

Only stayed one night in this hotel, thank goodness. The rooms in the main hotel may have been very nice but we stayed in the annexe even further down the track by the side of the lake. Our room was about the size of an average garage with a poor bathroom. The lake was either dried up or silted up.... More

We didn't know what to expect here and as the road is not good for the last 2kms were unconvinced that it would be worth the journey so were pleasantly surprised to find this eccentric place which has obviously been built with a lot of heart. Although it was raining our kids were entertained by the pedallos and canoes, table... More

The location is amazing, as the name says, at a beautiful lake and the houses are on the lake. The bed is huge (king size!) and ultra comfy. Unfortunately we only stayed there for 1 night and left the next morning early to leave with the train (MUST DO!) to Manakara. The train station is directly on the other side... More

A very quiet and beautiful place! It is hard to get there since the road is a nightmare, but if you take the train you will be "delivered" right in front of the hotel. The food is very good, the rooms beautiful and romantic. We stayed in June (cold season) but felt absolutely fine in this cosy small houses!
