Stunning property against the unique backdrop of Isalo, the rooms were very nice with modern bathrooms and nice large beds. The food was fantastic, even special meals made for my picky husband were incredibly tasty and the staff was only to happy to accommodate. Nice pool, beautiful, well kept grounds. The weather was playing havoc with the power, so that...

This is a 5* eco lodge, with all respect, not only 3* as registered. French cuisine and elegant service, in a secluded luxury resort. In the open there is a swimming pool, a Jacuzzi and a massage room. Staying here is a real delight, we felt good! The restaurant and bar faces out towards the Isalo rocks, and there is...

After a long hot day in the national park you are going to love the beautiful, serene atmosphere in this small resort. The resort is small enough to give you a personal feeling, yet it has all the amenities needed. Staff and management are very attentive and really try to make you feel comfortable. The bungalows are well appointed and...

The hotel is great: clean, luxurious, safe. Staff is very nice and helpful (thanks Maxime). People are looking for our best. The food in the restaurant is good. The Isalo park is a great place to visit and enjoy. My family enjoyed this place twice: on the way to and from Tulear. We stayed a total of 6 nights.

The setting of this hotel was amazing. Our room was very comfortable with a modern bathroom There was no air conditioning but a stand up fan was provided. The only negative point is that the power goes off at 11pm and come back at 6am. In those few hours it was uncomfortable to sleep in the heat. There was a...

After 7 hours being bounced around on Madagscar's potholed roads any hotel would have sufficed, I guess, but Le Relais de la Reine was simply fabulous. Our welcome was warm and very efficient escorting us to our lovely bungalow room. The sun was setting behind us as we arrived and we could barely make out the buildings of Le Relais...

This is an amazing, luxury hotel, contrasting starkly to the poverty of the people of Madagascar. The approach is down a long drive and the hotel stonework blends into the landscape of the National Park. Its setting is beautiful - well maintained gardens, a beautiful pool, floodlit at night and a tennis court. However, it is not suitable for anyone...

A stay at this marvellous French owned hotel is a dream, the accommodation is splendid, the food sublime, all you need for a couple of days stay after a long travelling day. Enjoy some pampering by having a great massage (cash only) in a purpose built building.The views of the surrounding area from the lounge is magnificent. The hotel seems...
