Reviewed February 19, 2012

We visited l'heure bleue from the 28th of December 2011 till the 13th of January. It felt like being in paradise for 2 weeks. Away from busy life. The views are stunning. The beach is around the corner and the diving centre at walking distance.
This is the perfect place to combine day trips (fishing trips, trips to nosy Komba, diving with Scuba Nosy Be, a trip to Lokobe or one of the islands in the bay etc.) with days of relaxation at 'home'.
Book a massage and you will get treated to a relaxing massage with a stunning view.
The staff is very friendly. We left a tip for the cleaning lady, on the first day, she refused. We thought it was to little. But she told us that she earned a good salary and loved her job and didn't need our extra money. How cool is that.... in one of the poorest countries of the world.
The staff is treated very good and on new years eve there was a good party and all the staff joined in. And the next morning at breakfast they were friendly as ever!

And then the food. We booked half pension. Every night a 3 course meal with a choice of a fish and a meat dish. And if you wanted a vegetarian dish they would prepare you something of your choice (no extra charge). Breakfast with fresh fruit and good coffee!
And if you book a day trip ask if they prepare you tuna sandwiches! They are really nice!

We really enjoyed our selves and met a number a nice and interesting people while staying here. If we have to name one thing that wasn't good.... It might be the rain. When it rains... It really rains! It doesn't last long fortanely.

This is a really a place worth visiting, a beautiful island, nice people and beautiful diving spots, just around the corner! Ask at the reception for the divecenter: Scuba Nosy Be. Very professional and friendly guys, who are able to tend to every kind of diver (experienced or not).

Anyway: we are definitely coming back here!

This Hotel is AMAZING. The staff are unbelievably friendly and go out of the way to help you. The accomodation is simple yet great, bringing you straight into a relaxed state and within the culture. The food is probably the best thing about this place - FANTASTIC. Every night there is something new, unique and unbelievably tasty! We spoke to a lot of people who were on holiday in Madagasgar at the time and we have to say this hotel was the best - without a doubt book here and have a holiday of a life time. Just take a French phrase book if you are not fluent will definatly help a bit!

Room Tip: Either of the beach front bungalows or the new ones are great. If you want something more upmarket g...
