Just stayed here one night while on the road and was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, comfort, good food and friendly service. Would definitely stay there again if I'm ever in that part of the world again.

Stayed here on our way to Sainte-Marie island. Didn't expect to much but were really impressed. The room was excellent as we're the staff. They heard it was our honeymoon so gave us massage each and dinner on them. Very impressed. If you go to tamatave definitely stay here.

I travel regularly through Tamatave on business and have stayed at various hotels in the city. this is one of the best with excellent facilities and good food. Service is top notch and the fact that all attendants speak good English makes a huge difference.

We were even entertained by a rather loud self centred American women who was on the phone to her travel agent moaning about the people she was travelling with. They were... More

Feature Clean, well-run hotel with some nice surprises Positives Very well run, very clean. Excellent food - among the best I had in Madagascar. Mosquito nets on the room doors not just on the bed. So could relax without mosquitos in the room - v. rare in Madagascar. Good wifi. Neutral Staff a bit rulebound. "Management says we can't give... More

Good hotel for a business trip and if you are traveling Madagascar on holiday... More

A safe and comfortable choice in Toamasina, definitely a higher standard than I expected overall. Very unexpected spa, indoor pool and well equipped gym in the basement. Treadmills, cross trainers, benches, free weights, a wide range of machines. Friendly gym monitor there to spot your bench press. Unexpected English-speaking staff and very new and modern elevators, rooms, TVs, aircon. Excellent... More

I have stayed in 2 other hotels in Tamatave and this one was the best. It is definitely worth the money and it's 4 stars and I would even say it exceeds the quality you would get in Europe. The rooms were large and tastefuly decorated. The bed was extremely comfortable and of a huge size. I liked the fact... More

In a world where people increasingly don't care about the service they offer, this hotel was a refreshing change from the norm. Upon arrival, we were greeted by several porters who were happy & smiling and keen to help. We were escorted to the lift whilst they carried our heavy bags up the stairs to the 4th (top) floor -...

The hotel Calypso is a real jewel in a dump of a town. I stayed there for the night on my way to the Pangalanes Canal. My room had been very tastefully decorated and included a comfortable bed and flat screen TV with BBC World and several other channels. The bathroom was very comfortable with a shaving mirror, good lighting,... More
