A big thank you for your comment. It's very important for us to hear from our guests. We are very pleased to know that you had a good experience in the hotel and hope to see you again one day in Sainte-Marie. Unfortunately, the beach has shrunk over the years. When we arrived 30 years ago, the sea level was... More

I stayed here in May 2016 for almost a week with family. Location is beautiful, the cottages over water are simple but functional, and you only hear the sound of the waves and the wind. Unfortunately the weather was not great and we had lots of rain and wind. We got there with a boat from Sonierana Ivongo but due... More

We really loved this place! The bungalows on the water are super cozy with the best view of the ocean you can imagine. Rova, the manager, is extremely helpful in arranging flights and other activities. The food is also delicious, ask for the special of the day! Highly recommended and the best prize in the area!

The staff changed our sheets and put down the mosquito net for us every night. The food was delicious!!! Rova spoke very good english.... More

The bungalows on the water were beautiful and comfortable, the grounds were stunning with lots of trees and flowers and the staff were friendly. The only draw back was that the rooms do not have on-suite bathrooms. They are all located together at one end of the property. While the bathrooms aren't share - you have your own keys for... More

Beautiful location and gardens and just 15000 MA away from the boat port (by tuc tuc - try it, it's fun!). Lucy the host was great and spoke good English and the owner was friendly and helpful.

This hotel has unique huts on the water. A ones in a lifetime experience. The rooms are nice and comfortable. The bathroom is on the shore. Each room has its own. The restaurant is nice - good food. Friendly staff - although English is a bit a problem. Only 1,5 members of the staf speak some English. But they are... More
