I stayed here for 2 nights (Beginning of Jan 2012) after a long 14 day travel to the South/East of Madagascar with Espace Mada Tour agency ( This agency was absolutely amazing. Affordable, fantastic vehicle, kind and endearing English speaking driver with incredible driving skills. I'm adding this to my review because we needed some suggestions about a tour operator but TripAdvisor doesn't have this as an option at the moment. SO, here is their website: http://www.madagascar-circuits.com/)..
Anyhow, Le Pavillon was exactly what we needed. We were recuperating from some unfortunate stomache problems and the hotel provided a safe, clean and very comfortable place. Our room even had an extra sitting room. The bathroom was large, clean and well equipped with hot water. The breakfast was very pleasant and plentiful with fruit, breads, cheeses and made-to-order egg dishes. In addition, there is a small sitting room that has coffee/tea/biscuits all day long (We took advantage and sat there for a bit reading books). There was also a free massage included in the price of the room! The staff was helpful and the internet worked easily in our room (wifi). We did not order the taxi with the hotel, but through another driver we had met when we first arrived (it was about 10 euros cheaper.. don't know why). The hotel is in safe walking distance to 3 restaurants which other reviewers have confirmed. Finally, in case of bad weather or the need to stay in our rooms, we had access to DVDs and a DVD player in our room (which we enjoyed immensely due to the condition of our exhausted bodies).
I can't say enough wonderful things about this place. I only can imagine that negative reviews (especially posted about services during late January and February) could perhaps be contributed to the fact that this time period is the "off season" in Mada and perhaps they were understaffed or ill prepared for visitors during this time.
