“Perfect romantic getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Had a fantastic time at this hotel. Quiet and very well decorated room with a great view of the sea. Food at the restaurant was delicious, specially seafood. Service was 5 exceptional. Town is just within a walking distance from the hotel. I had a great time there and I'll definitely be back

Loved this hotel. Very modern for Madgascar. Fabulous location right by the coast but only a couple of minutes walk from the main street. Very peaceful rooms, lovely decor and an good restaurant with a lovely terrace overlooking the sea. We felt extremely well cared for although the staff were unobtrusive, despite the many gardeners called in to water the green gardens. Would certainly stay here again.

Excellent location for the hotel with a terrace view on the sea although the beach has nother particular. The area is very quite but you can reach the center quite rapidly and easily. The rooms are confortable and quite big in the perspective of local standard. The restaurant is also good and proposed various choices of typical malagasy food. Good place to stay in order to discover the nearby region.

Great property with decent restaurant. Staff is very eager to please. If you don't speak french, the staff will do their best to speak English. Don't go here expecting an amazing beach. The hotel sits waterfront on a bay. To get to the amazing beaches, you'll need to catch a taxi to Ramena then catch a sail boat to the small islands. The front desk can set this all up for you. The cost will be 50,000 ariary for the taxi and another 50,000 per person for the boat ride to the small island which includes a nice 3 course malagasy meal on the island. the sailboat crew actually drops you off at the island then catches and prepares fresh seafood for you. This was the most amazing experience I had while in Madagascar. Airport transfers can be set up through the hotel as well. I would suggest doing that rather than dealing with the characters at airport. I would also highly recommend that you constantly reconfirm your flight info, Air Madagascar changes there flight times without any notice to passengers.

With the gentle reminder that you are in Madagascar, this is a very nice place! If you are a budget traveler, there are obviously cheaper places to stay...but this is still affordable. It's about a 20 minute drive from the airport. At the airport...ask for the cab driver Cheric, pronouced "Sher - eek". He's a very considerate driver who knows his way around!

The food at Allamanda is fantastic! And it's location is set off the main drag so you aren't around the chaotic nightlife of Diego. And yet you are a convenient short walk to many sites!

Very comfortable room with (almost) sea view - would have been better in the next row. We only stayed one night but the food was excellent - th ebreakfast was the best of our whole month long trip in Madagascar.
