We spent 2 nights at Arc en ciel, we can only say that how the great time we spent here, everything is perfect. Since the booking Gabriella is very nice for exchange and also very flexible, she is here to help us all the time. She offered us the best room. And all the staff are just wonderful, they are smiling all the time, take care of the clients for each detail, we are felling at home here! The rooms are top clean, nice beach and swimming pool, great view with the sea. The food and cocktails are pretty good. In one word, it’s the best hotel that we had in Madagascar during our trip, it’s memorable for our nice trip. So don’t hesitate, Arc en ciel is the best choice! We will come back again no hesitation. Thanks to all the people here for your hospitality. You are the best.

Beautiful boutique hotel directly by the sea. Super nice infinity pool, extremely clean and very well taken care of. Personnel is really nice and professional. Rooms are very spacious and beautifully decorated. Our room (n. 3) had a huge patio directly looking at the sea and pool. Very quiet. Excellent value for money.

Staff is great as well as the owner who truly cares about making your stay a positive one. Although not all staff speaks English, they try and use translation Apps to support. Food was good, healthy, and would adapt to requirements. They organized excursions at good prices as well as transportation everywhere. I don’t give it a 5 as the pillows were not very comfortable (although that goes in Personal preference) and the ocean in the front has a beach that comes and goes (depending on the tide), but overall it’s narrow. The pool is very nice and the view amazing. It is very clean.

Very nice, calm, and cozy hotel. The pool is beautiful and perfectly maintained. The beach isn't great, but there are many options nearby. The food was very tasty - I would highly recommend the poisson fumé, a true delight! The owner greeted us warmly with a cold glass of fruit juice on arrival, and made sure we had everything we needed. We felt very at home! The bed was large, and very comfortable. The air conditioning worked great, too. I particularly enjoyed the smaller size of the hotel - which gives it more charm than some of the larger hotels on Nosy Be. The dining room is very well decorated. I'd recommend this hotel to friends & family in the future, and hope I can return.

This small 12-room gem is definitely the place to stay in noisy, chaotic, crowded Nosy Be. Located a 20-minute drive from the harbors and the touristy area, it is well worth that drive to enjoy the peaceful, beautiful, well-staffed property right on the Mozambique sea. Olivia and Roget worked the restaurant and bar, anticipating our needs and wishes. The general manager checked with us a few times each day to see if we needed any assistance or excursion arrangements. The large pool and lush grounds were a pleasure in which to relax. The gigantic mango tree at the entrance was the source of our morning fruit and daily juice – cannot get any fresher than that. Our room was on the second floor, overlooking both pool and beach, with a large balcony and a resident friendly cat which slept on our balcony most afternoons. From this comfortable and pretty base, we spent four days on sea outings, snorkeling with whale sharks, visiting nearby islands, seeing lemurs, etc. Meals were delicious, huge portions, and plated with style. Seafood, fish, and shellfish were featured, but other options were available. We did not want to leave this resort – it was so perfect! This pleasant visit was included in our tour by Linah at Authentic Madagascar Tours.
