One of the best and most hospitable places we encountered in various trips to and throughout Madagascar. Hardly beatable located on the end of a very nice beach in Nosy Be with guaranteed ocean sound in the comfortable, clean and well-equipped rooms. This goes with very reasonable pricing and great attention of the owners and their staff for anything you... More

We got here late at night after arriving from Antananarivo - we could hear the ocean at the end of the garden, but did not see it until the morning, when we were surprised at how close the beach was to our rooms! The rooms were clean, comfy, spacious, and the staff friendly and helpful (helping me to get my... More

This place run bei Gérard obviously forever is a very nice and cosy little bungalow place in Nosy Be (or Ambatoloaka to be precise). It's the last/the first hotel on the Beach, which makes it even more attractive. The team is taking excelent care of you. Be aware, that the place has no restaurant of it's own. But there are...

Excellent value for money and the best place to stay in the area if you are looking for a small, personal establishment. Great setting right at the end of the beach so very peaceful. Nice gardens and love the way they've set up the comfy sun loungers on the little stone terrace and right on the sand. A good continental... More

We stayed in this lovely hotel six nights as a relaxing finish of our Madagascar trip. And what a relaxation it was: a nice and clean room with extra space on the terrace, a beautiful garden, delicous breakfast on the beach, ...Even an upset stomach at the end of our stay did not spoil this impression. On the contrary, the... More

We stayed 3 nights here after a "dhow" trip and we relished the large clean rooms, lovely veranda seating areas, excellent laundry service, great breakfasts and most of all, the exceptionally friendly and professional staff who went out of their way to greet us and help us. Very well-run place. It's at the very quiet end of Ambatoloaka beach/town with... More

What a little Gem! Nosy Be is perfect so is this hotel. Situated at the end of a secluded beach.....Its quite, safe and couldnt have been a better base for us. The rooms are of a good size. Very clean and they are really all you need in Paradise. Excellent value for money. Breakfast on your own private veranda each... More
