The bungalows on the water were beautiful and comfortable, the grounds were stunning with lots of trees and flowers and the staff were friendly. The only draw back was that the rooms do not have on-suite bathrooms. They are all located together at one end of the property. While the bathrooms aren't share - you have your own keys for... More

Offering some welcome comforts after a week of travelling around mainland Madagascar, our stay was too short really. Beautiful location and gardens and just 15000 MA away from the boat port (by tuc tuc - try it, it's fun!). Lucy the host was great and spoke good English and the owner was friendly and helpful. Stunning views, good bar and... More

This hotel has unique huts on the water. A ones in a lifetime experience. The rooms are nice and comfortable. The bathroom is on the shore. Each room has its own. The restaurant is nice - good food. Friendly staff - although English is a bit a problem. Only 1,5 members of the staf speak some English. But they are... More

The bungalows on the water were my favorite part, and I would stay here again for this fact alone. It was breezy all day an night, with big windows to let in lots of sunlight all day, and a porch with two chairs looking right over the horizon. Nothing else could beat that, and it made some of my least... More

My friends and I just spent 4 nights at the Lakana hotel in a family bungalow. The experience was amazing!!!! Rova, was such a delight to talk with and she made our stay memorable. The food was outstanding as well. During our stay we relaxed on the Indian Ocean, went snorkeling on the reef, and took a boat tour of... More

We stayed here for one night to experience the bungalow on the water. We were a bit unlucky with the weather, as we had rain, but the experience was great. The service provided by the staff was absolutely magnificent, from the reception to the cooks, to the manager, they all ensured that the guests were having the best time possible.... More

Chalets along the beach, also some set back and others on a wood pier (with on-shore bathrooms). Excellent menu options and daily set. Wifi in bar area with cozy chairs. All staff are extra attentive. They can fix tours including whale watching (recommended in season)-- all hotels seem to have same prices for better class/safety boats-- probably much cheaper in...

Sadly, we only stayed one night at the Dar Rocmarra, on our way home, but it was such a lovely way to end a wonderful trip. We were greeted so warmly by The staff and the food were SO delicious there was almost an unseemly scramble for the last one. I've since tried replicating them at home from an internet... More

As part of our trip through Madagascar we stayed at the Lakana hotel and it was splendid. The staff was very friendly and service minded. While we stayed here, we had our first anniversary and I arranged a surprise for my wife, with the staff helping me to get everything planned. Locationwise you have a few restaurants, bike rentals and... More
