I can only echo what has been said before: comfortable bungalows right by the beach. The rooms could do with more than the 1 power outlet that they have. Very friendly staff too. There is a wifi connection (only useful for checking mail etc.) in the adjacent hotel.

Ikotel is more secluded and private than a lot of the hotels along Ifaty Beach. Our room was lovely and the food and service at the hotel were quite good. Our room was spacious and the view, superb. The only quibble I could possibly have is that the rooms do not have room safes. This would make them perfect. Each... More

We stayed here the beginning of Dec., 2011 for several nights. Being the end of the tourist season, we found few other guests, except for a group of birdwatchers who came in while we were there. It was very quiet & peaceful! We found it a good way to end our 18 days in Madagascar! The only disadvantage was the... More
