“modest hotel, reasonable good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

I have stayed 2 times at Zaha in last year. Very reasonable rates, fair accommodations with hot water and air conditioning ok. Nice, but spartan bungalows on the beach. Nothing special but a beautiful location. Take a walk towards the 'public' beach area (1K north) to see the fishing boats returning and the vendors offering everything from fish to hats, during the tourist season. Restaurants along the beach add to the choices.
Wifi (free to use) was much better on second trip. Food and drink at the hotel was ok and reasonably priced. Staff friendly and helpful. I like this place. Good value at a beautiful beach.
I love the Malgasy people. A good culture.

Room Tip: bungalows on the beach are preferred, but any room is good.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Beachside chalet style, and good helpful staff as is usual in Madagascar. Decor in the rooms a bit shabby and some room locks were a tad tricky. Nice sea breezes late pm and early evening but can get a bit warm later when these die down, and only one bedroom has a noisy old aircon, best to try and get a freestanding fan if you are using both beds. Decent restaurant, nothing fancy but quite acceptable. It's not a smart expensive hotel, but it makes a good base for visits to Ankarafantsika NP or the Betsiboka estuary and Kapsedy lighthouse.

Room Tip: Try to get one with a fan
