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.

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
