“Great service, great staff, english is spoken”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2009

We were traveling Madagascar for about one month, wisited many "upper" mid-rangge hotels and Lakana was one of the best choices. Staff of this cosy hotel, which has amazing garden and beach was friendly, especially young manager asistant, who speaks fluent english did a great job. The food was excelent and bungalows as well as the garden and beach were clean. The hotel also offers airport transfer free of charge. They also rent motorcycles for a reasonable price.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2009

We spent 6 nights at Lakana and enjoyed our stay but prefered Ile Aux Nattes and can highly recommend Hotel La Petite Traversee. We would definitely go back to Ile Aux Nattes. We totally relaxed here and loved the island.
The food at Lakana was hit and miss - it was either really good or very average. We hardly saw the hotel owner and very little english is spoken. We did enjoy hiring a scooter a couple of times to go into town.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2009

My daughter stayed for five days at Hotel Lakana in February 2006. The hotel gave us free transfers to the small airport, and on arrival at Lakana a lovely fruit punch was given as we checked in. We opted for one of the gorgeous thatched bungalows in the sea, there was also a slightly more expensive choice of beachside bungalows. The staff do their utmost to make one feel comfortable and food/beverage requests can be filled through the day at all times, albeit depending on what fresh produce is available on the island or the boat that comes across from Tamatave. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and a lovely touch were the fresh flowers always in abundance. The long jetty provides great sunbaking and access to the sea. Hotel management rented a scooter to us for a small fee and we ran about the island for a wonderful sunny /rain drenched day. The meals at the hotel were simple but delicious and totally fresh.
