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

Excellent hotel and resto. Very nice terrace where food and drinks are served. Toamasina not worth the visit. Interesting clientele ... NGO's and doctors without borders. The swimming provides pleasant relaxation. WiFi is free and available in rooms.

We arrived at the hotel soaking wet after a 4 hour boat ride in the pouring rain.What a pleasure it was to have a hot bath and shower in a spotlessly clean room.The staff were friendly and helped us sort out another Air Madagascar flight change. There is a very nice terrace restaurant where we had some delicious food served... More

We stayed at this hotel on 7th August 2014 on our way back from Ile Sainte Marie, the room was nice, the food was good and service friendly. However, our flight back to Antananarivo was not until 7pm so we left our bags in the hotel's locked baggage room and when I went to get my Kindle when we got... More

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
