Stayed at Calypso in March 2016 during the Easter holidays, the hotel is clean and staff very friendly. I particularly enjoyed the food and the service offered by the staff.They made an effort to get me a room as the hotel was fully booked and I do not regret the time I spent there. It surely deserves the title.....The best... More

The staff is friendly and very English friendly so I'm assuming they also are fluent in French. Our company was thrilled with the clean indoor pool and accompanying sauna room with separate locker rooms for men and women. Day passes are also accepted for this and the gym located downstairs. The restaurant is very good and has local Malagasy dishes... More

We stayed for a long weekend with our two sons. We asked for two rooms so the children could sleep separately and also we wanted separate beds for them, but somehow this was a bit lost in translation. We did get the two rooms, but each one had one bed for two people. With a 3 and a 5 year... More

I didn't see any more luxurious hotels in Toamasina than the Calypso Hotel. We stayed there one night and had an awesome time. The staff was friendly and organised our taxi the next morning at no additional cost. I also recall that the wifi was very fast:)

Really impressed with the room: chocolates on the pillow for example. Excellent staff and restaurant service could not be faulted. My dessert was beautiful to look at and to eat. Lovely spa area with very nicely decorated pool, electronic lockers and towels and robes provided.

Calypso is a great hotel and has a great restaurant. The food there is excellent but sometimes the service is a tiny bit slow... The quality of the food largely compensate for the service. It is a must try!
