If you find yourself in Nosey be and want to escape Hellville (aptly named) you could make your way down to the very lovely Le Grand Bleu in Andilana, a little over 20km away. You're in for a treat. Situated on a hill overlooking two bays this little spot of paradise sports a bar, classy restaurant, easy access to snorkeling,... More

We booked the hotel directly as the reviews were very good and after a few e-mails between my wife and the owners we decided to go for it. What a brilliant decision, we are both in our forties and have traveled around quite a bit, this was by far the best Hotel and holiday experience we have ever experienced. Celine... More

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

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

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.
