This was our 2nd visit to Sakatia Lodge with our 1st visit having been in 2009. We thoroughly enjoyed our 1st holiday there so when we decided to visit Madagascar for a second time, this past December (2011), the decision was a no-brainer And Sakatia Lodge sure didn't disappoint! Firstly, after arriving I noticed that since 2009 Sakatia Lodge had...

This is our second trip to Sakatia after our first fabulous experience in Dec 2009. We boarded the plane and immediately spotted familiar faces - some of the guests from our previous trip - that's got to say something that we are all returning! Everything was as we remembered it from our previous visit - it was almost like returning...

The beer is never cold.The person looking after the kitchen was sick and the food was poor as a result. The sandwiches provided on our fishing boat was terrible and charged at Euro14. This over and above the Euro...

We came as a group of 4 after 2w of hurtling round Madagascar seeing birds and lemurs and the few bits of remaining original forest--and the lovely people-- and found that all those reviews were right-Isobella Jose and Jaques run a calm relaxed well sited small setup with very comfortable bungalodges with good ensuite facilities and views across the bay...

If your idea of a dream vacation is a bungalow right on the beach, a calm bay for swimming, and good snorkeling directly off shore.... if you are comfortable with rustic but clean and attractive but unpretentious accommodations... if you prefer affordable rates over fancy cuisine...then Sakatia Lodge is perfect. We came for a week but couldn't bear to leave,...

Our group of 7 friends stayed here for 4 days as the final step of our Malagasy adventure. the hotel is quite small, which allows for a very intimate feel. The location is a secluded tropical paradise. The beach was superb (With access to a great reef out front for snorkeling at low tide where we swam with sea turtles)...
