I have visited the hotel for a second time. The room is comfortable and the service good. Coffee for breakfast could be better. The Internet is very slow. It is even difficult to connect to gmail. Nevertheless, I will come back and stay there on my next trip to Tamatave.

The restaurant was beautifully decorated and the staff was excellent. Our group of 8 people enjoyed their meals. I'd recommend this restaurant if you find yourself in Toamasina, Madagascar. The staff was friendly and attentive. We did not stay at hotel - but it looked beautiful.

I have only dined in the restaurant, although I hope to spend a night soon. It's a beautiful space with terrace dining available. Very modern, attractive décor. The wait staff speaks English and the manager is always welcoming. The first time I went I had Rolled Chicken with Raisin sauce. It was good, but nothing special. The raisin sauce didn't... More

We have visited Calypso most often to enjoy the fantastic restaurant, which should be listed individually on this site in the dining category. The food is fantastic, the service is fantastic and I enjoy the ambiance. We stayed a night as a respite from the city and enjoyed ourselves. We like the pool, spa and gym facilities. We wish there... More

We did not stay in the hotel but dined in the restaurant. The hotel is modern, and appears to be well-appointed. Certainly the public rooms are of a high standard. The staff are attentive and would not be out of place in some of the better hotels at home. The menu is varied and the quality of the food is... More

I spent two nights at Calypso and wish I could have moved in. After being in Tamatave for awhile it was nice to spend the weekend here and relax. The food and wine selection are great. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The bathtub is one of the largest I have ever seen. The staff are amazing. The only... More

Excellent value for money. Clean rooms, great restaurant, beautiful swimming pool. Room a/c worked they whole time, quite and efficient room service. The only complaint is there was not wifi in the room. Free wifi is available from the restaurant however. Will stay here again.

An oasis in the midst of a most unattractive city. After a three hour boat ride up the canal we arrived in Toamasina to discover a not especially attractive city. We were warned not to go here and there as it was dangerous. The hotel was lovely with terrific staff, a nice restaurant and clean and spacious rooms. We spent... More

Looked quite new. Well appointed room with creative decor. Very comfortable. Nice shower in the bathroom. Did not use the bath. Wifi in the room was challenged but then again, this is Madagascar. Service in the bar/restaurant was very good. Wifi there was better. Pleasant staff throughout. Did not eat in the hotel, so cannot comment on that. Would be... More
