“Finest cooking on the island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Located on the west coast, half way up the island Explora Village is a welcoming peaceful retreat. Managed by an italian couple who cook up some of the finest food on the island. There was no menu you eat what you're given but you will not be disappointed. The bungalows are individual and spread out in a nice landscaped garden, fronting on to the beach. The sandy beach isn't the best in the world but you are usually left alone as the hawkers tend to besiege the italian resort next door.
I would happily stay here again because of the perfect hospitality.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

A lovely hideaway on the tourist island of Nosy Be. we were so pleased to find the Explora Village with its freindly Italian owner Marco and Yvette, the beautiful and helpful malagasy partner. We enjoyed wonderful food, lovely comfortable bungalows and amazing sunsets. The beach was lovely if not the best one we have ever seen, but we just enjoyed relaxing and drinking Marcos delicious caprinhas at sunset... a must if you stay here!!
