Rooms are very spacious. Pool is amazing facing the ocean. Great for beautiful sunsets. Location is great not far from a local grilling of fish, seafood & meat kabobs down the street. Their restaurant is good too. Food was tasty but s bit pricy for madagacar.

I have been travelling to the Northern part of Madagascar last April 2016 and could experience this lodge at least for one night. The cottage is really comfortable and nice looking and the food were very nice. We were allowed to use the pool at any time which we appreciated the most. We defnitely recommend this address.

If you like your western creature comforts then this is for you...

This was the 2nd most expensive place we stayed at during our trip in Madagascar but we deserved that after a 20 hour taxibrousse ride from Nosy Be.

Huge accommodation spread over two floors with access to nice gardens. Great pool overlooking the harbour and sea. Has a dedicated French chef preparing the meals and these meals were some of the best for the trip to Madagascar. Dining room is open and overlooks the sea, great to see the fishing boats heading off in the morning.
