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

Very clean and they are really all you need in Paradise. Excellent value for money. Breakfast on your own private veranda each... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For the team of the Hotel Gerard and Francine in Nosy Be, Madagascar, reception is an art and you will be received with all of our attention, treated like family; for you we offer a comfortable atmosphere, our reputation for this style of work is irrefutable and has been for the last 25 years in Nosy Be. It is a charming establishment made of modern, cozy, clean guest rooms; snuggle up between the Crater cliffs, the long beach of Ambatoloaka and its lagoon. More than the charm of the hotel here is the charm of an extraordinary garden on one of the most beautiful beaches of the Indien Ocean where you can watch the sunset. It is on this beach, each day, that the Hotel Gerard & Francine was constructed in 1988 amongst the tropical flower gardens and the palms where we enjoy the company of freedom, lemurs, hummingbirds, chameleons. One particular area of attention is providing the decoration of your rooms, using typical Malagasy architecture, traditional construction with wood floors and creole ceilings. ... more   less
