“Where's Basil?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2012

Truly it's like Fawlty Towers here. It's a shame as the rooms were a good size and pleasant, but so many non working items. Power an issue as per previous reviewer and service was the typical Gallic shrug. Personally I also did not find the location great, too far from other eating options and the food was just passable when someone deigned to serve you.

A resort on a quiet beach, away from the hustle of the busier towns of Nosy Be.

The rooms and large and bright and promise much by Madagascan standards - air-con, in-room tea/coffee, 24 electric. Unfortunately, looks can be deceiving - there was a power cut every day and the resort had no generator, therefore, guests are charged mid-high end prices yet the resort delivers nothing in terms of service because they don't even have a back up generator - we had no electricity for our entire stay and the rooms were sweltering.

The resort of this nature, in this country and in this price category simply must have a back up generator, there are no excuses.

The restuarant had quite an international feel to its menu, with dishes from several Indian Ocean islands. However, we required vegetarian food and there were just 3 options - a hopeless offering for an isolated resort, with no other dining options in sight.
