“Great place- we'll be back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Ikotel is more secluded and private than a lot of the hotels along Ifaty Beach. Our room was lovely and the food and service at the hotel were quite good. Our room was spacious and the view, superb. The only quibble I could possibly have is that the rooms do not have room safes. This would make them perfect. Each room is really a suite, with a large sitting area, plus a bedroom. One nice feature of this place is that they are far enough out of the way so that guests don't get inundated by beach vendors. If you like a bit of solitude, without being too far out of the way, this is place is perfect! The rates are also a bit less than a lot of the others, so the value for money is definitely there.

Room Tip: If available, get one of the beachfront ones.... All the rooms are lovely and spacious though.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

We stayed here the beginning of Dec., 2011 for several nights. Being the end of the tourist season, we found few other guests, except for a group of birdwatchers who came in while we were there. It was very quiet & peaceful! We found it a good way to end our 18 days in Madagascar! The only disadvantage was the road from Tulear to Ifaty...but it was an adventure!

Room Tip: Work was being done on some of the bungalows in a remodeling project.
