I've just got back from the Nosy Be hotel where we spent our honeymoon.
It's a beautiful hotel with nice rooms, a great pool and despite what the other reviews have said, a pretty great beach.
-We reserved a bungalow and instead were given a standard room which the hotel insisted was a bungalow despite not being nearly the same size as the other bungalows there.
-On the second day my mobile phone was stolen from inside my room. It could only have been stolen by the maids but the hotel refused to take any responsibility whatsoever.
-My wife and I both got food poisoning that left us confined to our room for over half the holiday. We only ever ate at the hotel's restaurant.
-The drinks served at the bar seemed very unhyghgenic - there being dirt covering the bottles.
-The restaurant menu is very limited (if you don't like seafood or are unwilling to get food poisoning, you're going to starve... Like we did for three days.
They don't offer any kind of snacks either.
-The electricity was constantly failing... This was not a regional problem as the lights from the other hotels along the beach remained on during these blackouts. Moreover, so was the internet and the Visa machine.
-The drinks were vastly over-priced
-While the bathroom was nice our toilet was disgraceful- the toilet seat was stained with urine.
Despite all these problems, it really is a beautiful hotel and you'll never find a beach that empty anywhere in Europe. If you are planning to stay there, make sure you check out the menu before you go... and bring a few tins of beans with you just in case!
