Was very mipressed by this place. Very relaxing, nce beach, the bunglaows were pretty awesome. the staff were nice and helpful, and not pushy like most of the hotel staff i encountered in Tana. The restaurant was excellent, and the pool was inviting. the nearby spiny forest is incredible and there are numbers of day geckos and house geckos on... More

We stayed 6 nights at Bamboo Club in March and had a lovely relaxing time. The resort is right on the beach, with great views and sunsets. The staff were lovely and accommodating. The restaurant is not bad, but better value meals can be found a short walk down the beach (particularly breakfast). The bungalows are great value, would recommend... More

Stayed at Bamboo club for a few weeks to escape the rainy season in Antsirabe... Sweet thanks to Sette, Ivan, Florent, Eric, Emma and all the staff for a magical stay. Will miss our little house by the beach and the lovely sunset drinks, moonlight walks, fire on the beach, Cigales de mer under the tamarin tree and the swimming...

The spiny forest of Madagascar is one of the most unique environments anywhere, and this is a great place to stay which is near some of the best spots to visit. The beach is ok but not fabulous--at low tide, it is very shallow a long ways out. The food was excellent.

Dbates509, Thanks for your review. We are totally agree with you about the spiny forest. The beach at low-tide is certainly less wonderful than the beach at high-tide. Hope to see you, Best regards, Bamboo Club Ifaty More

We enjoyed the location of this hotel - on the beach, somewhat secluded, but you can also walk a few minutes along the beach to other eating places and dive clubs (there are 3 at Ifaty). It's one of only a few hotels that have their own pool, and it was generally spotlessly clean - no mean feat as it... More

I stayed here only one night but we had a nice time. We stayed in one of the newer bungalows and the beds there are very comfortable. The owners are very kind and they speak french. There is a clean pool, but it's nicer to go directly on the beach. Some malagasy women will often hang out on the beach... More

Lilla C, Thanks for your review. We are happy that your stay was great. Sometimes we have a lot of mosquitos but we find always a solution to keep quiet. However, the best solution is a treatment deeply that we do regularly. Hope to see you, Best regards, Bamboo Club More

The owner collected us from the airport himself, and I found him a very pleasant, nice man, despite the many hours he had to wait for us thanks to Air Madagascar living up to their reputation of always being late. The 20 km or so journey takes 1h15 through pretty scenery and Bamboo Club is located on the other side... More

I stayed here as the last 3 nights of a 2 week G Adventures trip, and it was an excellent way to end the travels and relax. Like a lot of the Madagascar coast, the beach is not great - huge tidal differences and no waves as it sits inside the reef - but the hotel itself was very pleasant.... More

We arrived here on a tour but liked it so much that we decided to stay an extra couple of nights. The bungalows were set back slightly from the sea and were perfect - large, clean and nicely kitted out. There was a decent pool which was kept clean almost to the point of obsessiveness! And the beach was immediately... More

The location is everything, sure Ifaty is pretty much away from anything but once you see the view from the hotel front you will never want to leave ever. The rooms are essentially 50 individual huts with double bed and mosquito net provided and are really well decorated with working shower
