Stayed here for 2 nights before and after a tsingy trip. The beach bungalows are nice, set in a lovely garden with ample relaxation areas and a pool. The bar/restaurant is nice, food was good, especially the seafood (prawns were massive!). Free wifi worked well but it in the bar. Located on the beach but the fenced beach area was... More

We stayed here two nights and had a really nice time. The bungalows have a lot of character and it's right on the beach so very easy to sneak out for a swim or walk on the beach. The food at the restaurant was amazing and everyone was very friendly. The hotel is also along a busy strip so it's... More

I stayed here for one night only after a long and sweaty day at Kirindy Forest and a sunset drive through Allee des Baobabs. Arriving here as it was dark already, having a long shower and nice dinner felt like real treat! The atmosphere at Chez Maggie is very friendly and chilled, and all staff were courteous and professional. The... More

Hotel Chez Maggie is loacted next to the beach. Although the beach of Morondava isnt really prepared for tourists - it is not that clean. The hotel has good facilities; fe also a nice pool. The rooms are big and clean. The restaurant serves nice food. There is wifi in the restaurant but very, very slow. They could improve the... More

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.

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.
