We stayed for a long weekend with our two sons. We asked for two rooms so the children could sleep separately and also we wanted separate beds for them, but somehow this was a bit lost in translation. We did get the two rooms, but each one had one bed for two people. With a 3 and a 5 year... More

I didn't see any more luxurious hotels in Toamasina than the Calypso Hotel. We stayed there one night and had an awesome time. The staff was friendly and organised our taxi the next morning at no additional cost. I also recall that the wifi was very fast:)

Really impressed with the room: chocolates on the pillow for example. Excellent staff and restaurant service could not be faulted. My dessert was beautiful to look at and to eat. Lovely spa area with very nicely decorated pool, electronic lockers and towels and robes provided.

Calypso is a great hotel and has a great restaurant. The food there is excellent but sometimes the service is a tiny bit slow... The quality of the food largely compensate for the service. It is a must try!

Good evening, Thank you for your visit at Calypso Restaurant last night. We recognized that there was an expecting for an order. As we were full at the Restaurant yesterday, we could not serve everyone at once. The expectation was based on each customer’s order. We always try to do the maximum to satisfy all of our clients. We hope... More

Very efficient welcome. It was a real pleasure to stay in this very beautiful and comfortable hotel after a few days in the bush. Pleasure to have a wonderful bathroom in a nice bedroom with all the desired comfort. I was very well welcomed in the restaurant and the dinner was top quality. The breakfast buffet was perfect as was... More

I have stayed at some of the best hotels in the world. I have high expectations for every hotel I stay in. The Calypso met...and exceeded everything I was hoping for. Despite it's setting in this developing country, the Calypso offers First World quality and excellence. My only regret was that we stayed only a few days in this luxurious... More

A nice new hotel, centrally located a short walk from the ocean front, with a nice lobby, a nice terrace bar, friendly staff, good and clean, with a nice ambience often missing from this standard of hotel. Excellent rooms, big comfy bed, little terrace, good aircon, and a room with A BATH. Doing strenuous travel, to soak in a bath... More

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.
