I stayed here for 5 nights in April 15 as a base for seeing some of the sights in this part of Madagascar. The site is perfect, with the beach just 30 seconds away. The owner Gary was great to chat to over a drink in the evening and the food is fantastic. All the staff are friendly especially if... More

I stayed with a party of four family for about 5days and used the hotel as a hub while we visited the nearby Kirindi National Park (they can arrange this for you BTW). Unlike the reviewer below who was complaining about the room not being clean I had no problems unfortunately the WIFI issues seem to be beyond the control... More

Firstly, I was very disappointed that they were saying that there is wi-fi on the premises, but it is only in the bar area. Secondly, the fact that you have to ask them to clean your room was a little crazy. I've traveled in Madagascar and I don't have to ask people to clean my room--it's part of the deal.... More

Chez Maggie Chez Maggie is a small hotel personally run by Eliane & Gary who also runs Remote River Expeditions. We stayed at the hotel and Gary organised our whole trip in Mada with Remote River Expeditions. We were delighted with both the trip organisation and Chez Maggie. There was a slight delay in responding to emails but the telephone... More

We stayed Chez Maggie Hotel for two nights during our trip to Madagascar. Hotel has everything that people can wish while traveling: nice rooms, beach, pool and good food. You can rent a car, which is a big bonus in such remote place as Madagascar.

I don’t go very often west of Antsirabe but if I do it is only at Gary and Maggie’s place. Very good contact by Email to start with, friendly and professional owners. The Hotel is situated right on the beach; the bungalows are very comfortable, excellent food and nice garden and pool. Everything was just perfect.

We had a spacious room facing the garden which was quiet and with air con. The restaurant served great giant jumbo Cameron ( we ate 3 times!!!) the grill fish fillet was great too. They also organized trips and the drivers were professional and safe, tho they only spoke little English.

My friend and I rented a car with driver from Chez Maggie in Nov 2014. We couldnt have been happier with the quality of the car and driver's attitude and driving skills (in the thick mud up north). The hotel itself was also great. Right on the beach, nice quiet pool and nice rooms. The staff was great, the food... More

We stayed for three fabulous days in November. Very clean, comfortable bungalow set within lovely gardens right on the beautiful expansive white sandy beach. Staff were helpful and pleasant and the restaurant food was second to none. The swimming pool was a welcome addition to the relaxing stay.

Nice lodges and bathrooms. We spent two nights here at different times during our 3 week trip. The food is of a very good standard with a nicely varied menu. Hotel fronts the beach but unfortunately it was incredibly windy when we visited. Also, our second night here coincided with a complete absence of running water in the whole of... More
