This hotel is well-located for visiting Isalo National Park. The rooms are in an apartment -style complex which is pretty plain. Comfortable enough by Malagasy standards, with en-suite facilities, good sized beds and (eventually) hot showers. The food was reasonable. There is a nice Boulangerie across the road, but sadly it didn't open on the second day we were there and I was looking forward to grabbing breakfast there after an early morning visit to the park. As I was eating dinner outside, I saw flocks of little birds coming to roost in the hotel's trees. If anyone can positively ID them I would be delighted to hear from you.
For those who want to save on shoe leather, unless there has been a lot of rain recently, don't bother with the Cascade des Nymphs. The waterfalls at the Black and Blue pools were far more impressive. If you want to experience the park without the crowds, insist on going early. We were there at 7 am and had the place to ourselves. However, by the time we were heading back, the lemurs still hadn't emerged. But we'd seen them the previous afternoon so were looking for the birds instead. :)
