I waited 3 hours to be picked up, because they wrote down the wrong date, to make up for it- they gave me a plate of fruit (after we had just come from the buffet where we could have had all the same fruit). My time at the resort was good, it's a beautiful place, but nothing spectacular. Then I... More

Dear Michelle V, Thank you very much for spending, as you wrote, a good time in our resort. Your reservation has been changed many times and, despite the deadline of our offer, we granted you the maximum discount we could apply, that is to say the discount you got on your first reservation, the one that was then cancelled. We... More

My wife and I and two others just spent 3 amazing days at Andilana Beach Resort in Nosy Be Madagascar. We spent two weeks on the island staying at different places and doing mission work. The other places we stayed were not bad, but were not very comfortable either. When we got to Andilana we were greeted by a friendly... More

I would like to share the experience of my 7 day stay at Andilana Resort with both positive and negative experiences. This resort is managed by friendly, animated Italians and is clear from my time there and reading previous reviews this is their key clientele. They appear to be fully geared and committed to accommodate the Italians. This became more... More

We stayed here for five days and overall enjoyed the experience . Service was excellent but the resort is specifically tailored to Italian visitors. We were not aware of activities around the hotel as all announcements and written notices were in Italian and the assumption was that we understood. Booked on an excursion and we were the only English speakers... More

The resort operates on "Andilana time," (which everyone calls "Stupid Time,") an hour earlier than the real time. Everything is an hour earlier but they want the guests to think they are getting a lie-in. Unless you remain in the resort for your entire stay, it's just confusing and quite irritating. The excursions are extortionately priced - for example, the... More

It is with a bit of trepidation that I booked our holiday at Andilana Beach Resort. A hotel that’s been rated top 10 all-inclusive resort on TripAdvisor has something to live up to. Before you read further, do you homework: this resort is Italian owner run, which is bizarre simply because Madagascar was a French colony and everything is predominantly... More

The is a great resort. Large but we never had the feeling it was crowded. Great food at the buffet or at Pili restaurant (extra costs). The beaches are lovely and we had lovely time relaxing for a few days after travelling around Madagaskar They only thing is that they serve local alcoholic drinks which are quiet good except for...

The property is fantastic, is complete and all the comments already data give an idea, but there are small things that do not make it perfect. The bathrooms could use a makeover and you breathe Italian arrogance. For everything else a unique stay.

Very nice place, beach, staff and all the rest (food and rooms). the best the holiday complex in Nosy Be, especially if you're Italian given that the property is Italian too. Good security and perfect for family or honeymoon. Recommended

I stayed with my girlfriend here as the last part of our trip to Madagascar. We had intended for this to be our bit of luxury after staying in cheaper accommodations for the rest of the trip. I think the problem was that the other places we stayed in (Nosy Lodge, now called Sunset hotel) for example, were so amazing... More
