From the moment we arrived everything about our stay went above and beyond our expectations. We were met at the beach by one of the hotel managers named Daniel. He was actually in the water to meet our boat. From there we were taken to the reception area where we were given cool towels, snacks and drinks as we waited for our room. We were booked in a regular room but we offered an upgrade to the most amazing oceanfront suite. Upon learning that in had forgotten to pack a swimsuit, and having no shops nearby to purchase one, Daniel offered to send an employee to town to pick one up for me. Not wanting to inconvenience anyone, I declined and then Daniel actually offered to loan me one of his personal suits for my use. Within a couple hours, five suits were in my room to choose from.
The facilities of the hotel were quite impressive. The grounds were immaculately kept. The pool are and the beach were really inviting. On one evening, about a half hour before sunset, we went to the beach in front of our suite for a late afternoon swim. We were almost as far from the main area of the hotel as can be, but within a couple minutes, an employee appeared out of the bushes with cushions for our lounge chairs. I still have no idea where he came from, but again, the service was above and beyond.
Two meals a day were included in our rate and they were among the best meals we had in the country. We were provided several choices to choose from and they were all good. On our last evening we were even given an amazing dinner on the beach. Surrounded by the ocean, flowers, beach and each other the meal was a great ending to our amazing honeymoon trip to Madagascar.
