We've travelled to Madagascar for our honeymoon trip and we spent 6 days on this beautiful resort, ran by a really cute French couple. The hotel has very nice bungalows, with view to the ocean. The garden, the buildings, and the whole resort is lovely. It is in a silent and tranquil corner on Nosy Be island. The rooms are... More

I spent two nights in this hotel and I can say that the place is very clean, cozy and has a very nice swimming pool with nice views of the ocean and the coast. The restaurant serves delicious food and the staff working at the hotel are all very nice, friendly and respectful. They tried their best to speak to... More

If you are staying in Nosy Be and want lovely bungalows and wonderful food in a beautiful setting, this is the place for you. We stayed for a week during our honeymoon and every night we ate in the restaurant, which has an incredible combination of Malagasy/French cuisine - crabs, prawns, local fish, zebu steaks - everything is delicious and...

Run by the attentive and charming French owners, Le Grand Bleu has excellent views, nice rooms, well run excursions and very good food. I stayed in one of the basic rooms which was well decorated and comfortable. Though it feels and sounds like the mosquito net is the only thing separating you from the surrounding forest (I think the other... More

my partner and I spent 4 nights at "Le grand Bleu" in May 2014. After a nice tour in Western Madagascar, it was a very nice and relaxing ending of our vacation. The room was really cute with private hammock and an awesome view of the sea. We had dinner there twice and both times the food was nicely served... More

For my partner and I, our experience staying at Le Grand Bleu was amazing! The owners Celine and Jack were very accommodating and friendly. As nosy be is generally French speaking we were appreciative of the efforts made to help us communicate, really made a difference to our stay. As for the resort itself, the bungalows are beautiful, lovely pool... More

My partner and I stayed at Le Grand Bleu for 12 days in April 2014. From the onset, Celine and Jacques provided us with all of the support that we required in order to avoid logistical problems.

We stayed here for seven nights during our honey moon and had a lovely stay. Our room was private, clean and beautiful with amazing sea view. The owners were very helpful and friendly and the infinity pool was excellent. The food in the restaurant was good and we especially enjoyed the home made ice-cream. Perfect place in a wonderful island.

Celine and Jacques were amazing, there had been some disrupt in Nosy Be only a few days ago, they explained and informed us of the precautions they had taken and we felt very safe. We luckily had Petit Bleu, which was a beautiful little house with two different sea views. The food was brilliant, setting was brilliant, and they were... More
