This was a surprisingly relaxed and comfortable place to stay. It has very simple, large airy rooms, with good exposure to cooling breezes. It is a family
run business, that opened in 2008. They are really really nice people and this is just the sort of business that should be encouraged in Madagascar.
The Food simple but very good.
The Power is only on 6pm til 10 pm but that is really all you need.
Cell phone reception is very patchy and not enough for 2G Internet.
Would highly recommend both the Relais and the Ankarana NP. The Latter has lots of lemurs. Both the crowned and Ankarana sportif lemurs can be seen during the day. The Tsingy area is very hot but spectacular. The contrast in forest types between the limestone and basalt areas is extraordinary. The deciduous forest contains some of the weirdest vegetation you will ever see. There is prolific bird life, lots of green geckos etc etc
