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.
