We stayed in April, and had originally booked just a few nights. After having a lovely few days, and seeing nothing as nice as it around the island, we decided to stay longer. We stayed around 2 weeks in the end, and never wanted to leave! We spent the first half of our stay in the family bungalow - which... More

Very friendly and helpful staff, but information could be better: they forget to mention breakfast, wifi, towels, until you ask for it. The bar seems to close at 8, but when you ask it's always open :-) We traveled with 2 children (6 & 10). Family bungalow was a bit pricey and very basic, not that suitable for children. Double...

We booked B6 which was the only "open" bungalow, so we can't speak for the rest .There are no walls, with just a curtain as entrance and bamboo roller blinds as walls, with the whole set up inside a private enclosed garden area. The bathroom is very basic, but with limited fresh water on the island, more then sufficient for... More

I was on my own, i payed 150.000 for the house, because it was ok for me with the salty water shower (its not too salty). philippe and federica make you feel home and relaxed, they have good infos to everything on meno.

Great value-for-money place. The young owners, Federica and Pascal, have just completed the renovation of the lodges this year. They are friendly, hospitable and very relaxed hosts. Because of its location a few hundred meters inland, the setting is very quiet with the sound of the breaking waves in hearing distance but keeping you awake at night. Great pancakes and... More

It was a pleasant little place but I should have shopped around. There were tons of vacancies on the island for less (not peak season) and they had complimentary wifi included. The owners were super nice and the banana pancake breakfast was great. It just seemed a little expensive for a place that was so... Rustic?

I stayed at Tao Kombo Lodge with 9 fellow travellers for an extended period of around 3 months. The facilities were appropriately cultural and simplistic to suit the island lifestyle and the beachfront location was euphoric to wake up to. But no doubt, the highlight of our stay was the friendly Tao Kombo family which we were welcomed into so... More

The french-owned lodge is in a backside beach street (5 min from the jetty where the boats start). It has a huge garden with a nice bar and restaurant. The wooden huts are simple but okay.

We opted for their most unusual bungalow - a big bed with mosquito net under the roof (wooden curtains surrounding the bed and the sitting area can be lowered), fenced open-air bathroom and a roofed sitting platform, all behind a low wooden fence. Casuarina trees are everywhere on the plot and around. It's about 100 m away from the beach,... More
