Third time I have come here in the last 5 years and the service is consistently good. It is a good family run establishment on the beach front and just off the main tourist road so very quiet (other places in Morondava are very noisy!). The owners are attentive and always happy to help...there are three very different types of... More

We stayed in a 2 storey bungalow with the bed upstairs and bathroom and sitting area down stairs. It was nice but I have to agree that the lay out was not the best. The windows on both floors only have shutters so they are open or closed if you want privacy. The bed on the second floor is not... More

Greetings and thank you. While we're disappointed that all was not to your liking it's worth noting that Chalet # 2 actually enjoys the record for the longest stay by the same guests. The Record: Over the past four years a couple from Switzerland: 1st Visit: 24 nights / 2nd Visit: 16 nights / 3rd Visit 14 nights! (Naturally they... More

We stayed two nights in chalet 2 which was of the teo most expensive as two storey beach front. Whilst it was spacious the design did not suit us. The bed is only a small double and on a mezzanine floor whilst the bathroom is on the ground floor. Not great if you need a visit in the night. The... More

We stayed at Chez Maggie for a couple of nights at the end of a tour with Remote River Expeditions, a company owned by the guy who runs the hotel, Gary. Chez Maggie first. It's a fantastic hotel. Gorgeous bungalows scattered round beautiful gardens. Direct access onto the beach, and a wonderful spot to watch sunset with a cold beer.... More

We had a great time staying at this little hotel towards the end of our trip through Madagascar. The hotel was a great, relaxing experience with friendly staff, nice maintained garden throughout the property and a great restaurant! The owners are Gary and his wife, with Gary being a very friendly and gracious host. We would highly recommend this hotel... More

I am an hotelier myself and tend to be as critical as understanding when reviewing a hotel. After endless deliberations, we booked in at Chez Magie for a 15 days holidays. Rare occurence as people tend to tour rather than drop their suitcases, but we wanted peace, quiet and R&R after our busy season. We got everything we wanted. On... More

We stayed at Chez Maggie for two nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The bungalo was clean and comfortable. The staff was accommodating and extremely pleasant, and the location was amazing. We spent a day just relaxing by the pool, swimming in the Mozambique channel (it is right on the beach), and taking pictures of the incredible sunset. The... More

I stayed two non-consecutive nights at Chez Maggie and was pleasantly surprised. The first room I stayed (#5) was spacious with A/C and large mossie net. It has a beach fair to it as you would expect from a beach hotel. The hotel has also direct access to the beach. Unfortunately, we arrived late and left early both times so... More
