The hotel staff were great and very friendly. The food was absolutely outstanding and the rooms were too. The pool area was big and very spacious. The beach at the hotel was amazing and looked exactly like in the pictures online. The gym was slightly old and did not have all the latest equipment but was still great for a... More

My family stayed at this resort for a week in November and it was an absolutely perfect vacation. The grounds are gorgeous, the beach and pool were both awesome, the rooms were clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly although most did not speak English. The food in the restaurant was delicious. We were the only Americans there... More

Neither did they have a sandy beach -it was too rocky nor great food . After having a great time in Nosy iranja this was down hill. The rooms are... More

Superficially this is an amazing hotel and a true paradise. Unfortunately once you have stayed there a few days you begin to realise that something has gone wrong a little in paradise. It is not helped from a British point of view by being very, very Italian and designed for that type of "sand but no sea" holiday that Italians... More

A great resort, and total luxury - just what you promised yourself if you ever won the lottery. Ideal way to end a tour with super staff, great comortable rooms and plenty of good food. Well worth the effort to get there and help the local economy at the same time. Dave t

Location is perfect ( although it is a bit far from the city center ) and the beach in front of the cottage was really nice. However the restaurant was poor . We were quite surprised that tuna meat ( which is surely given from canned tuna ) has been supplied as appetizer named " Tuna with caviar " (... More

I really admired the thought that had gone into making the most of this location using local sustainable materials and employing Malagasy people. The whole setting was an excellent balance of utilizing the natural beauty of the coastline while ensuring that the business of tourism did not intrude or dominate the locale. A very clever, comfortable and sensitively executed concept.... More
