Great hotel with spacious rooms and right on the beach. It is far from the city (Hell-Ville) but you don't really need to go there at all. They have an office of the excursion operator (Nosy Be Original) in the hotel, which is very convenient. It should be noted that during the lowest occupation months some facilities are occasionally closed,... More

This hotel looks to have been newly built/refurbished and is in an excellent condition. Infinity pool, lovely cocktails and super fancy rooms decorated to a very high modern standard. It was a nice breakfast with fresh omelettes or pancakes to order. Spa is very tastefully done and offers a range of treatments. We did not sample the restaurant food as... More

An infinity pool, a nice cocktail, the complete tropical atmosphere; how can one start better with his stay in the Vanila hotel? Maybe a good dinner afterwards (fresh fish grilled in front of you) and some local girls giving a small dance show? The large room with comfortable beds makes it all complete. The staff is friendly and gives you... More

outstanding gardens and fantastic infinity pool with a bar perfect for a drink watching the sunset. the rooms are spacious and well equipped, ours had a lovely balcony with chairs and impressive sea views. the only down side is the beach, not one of the best of the isle.

I stopped over here for one night on the way to another island. I was quite impressed. Excellent food in the restaurant and very comfortable room. Quiet and in a beautiful location. The wifi service was fast and reliable. Wished I could have stayed longer!
