Quaint, small and personal, got in late and left early but worth a longer stay or look... excellent service for the time of day and a quick early breakfast was most appreciated. Car service to and from airport was great.

Asked our driver/guide for a nice spot for a light lunch and he drove us here. It is on the outskirts of the city in a walled garden area. There is also a hotel here. We sat in the outside courtyard, in the shade and had a wonderful relaxing and tasty lunch. Service was good and friendly. Thought this was... More

I stayed 2 separate times at this hotel (it's really more like a B&B), and both times had great service and breakfast. My suggestion is the scrambled eggs in the morning, they're amazing! I had a room on the 3rd floor (noisier, but great views from the balcony) and a room on the second floor (quieter, overlooking the restaurant from... More

We stayed here twice in July due to early-morning flights and were very pleasantly surprised. Basically they hit all the right buttons. Our room - which was the same one both times - was large and comfortable, and very clean, the staff was polite and friendly and the restaurant (for dinner, see below) was excellent, well above what we expected....

We had spent a lovely night in Maison Gallieni, but had a very early plane to catch, and were recommended by our Travel Agent to go to the Hotel Combava, near the airport.

Dear, We regret that our service didn’t satisfy you, we always try to offer maximum quality and personalized services to our clients. The ground floor room was a request made by your travel agent. Indeed, none of our rooms is equipped with mosquito net. The reason is that we regularly carry out anti-mosquito treatments. Besides, we are surprised that there... More

Le combava is a cozy and feel as if you are home. They have few rooms and mostly occupied. Most rooms have kitchenette with microwave, plates and silver wares. It lacks stove if you want to cook. But, the hotel has very delicious food at a reasonable price. The staffs are friendly. The hotel is quite and doesn't have other... More

This is my favourite restaurant in Tana! I go for the foie gras but everything else is good too! I tried the seafood salad .... This place is on the way to the airport and I always schedule a visit ... Never disappointed. Amazing value for money!

Enjoyed my transit stay at Le Combava. Close to the airport, great rooms, and good restaurant. The room was spacious with kitchenette, and for my first experience in Madagascar, the menu selection was surprisingly good. Definitely recommend the Le Combava
