At Libertalia we felt safe and well cared for. They welcome you with a delicious home made punch Coco, which we then had every...

The rooms are clean and comfortable, good beds compared to other hotels. But the best thing is the view you can sit in front of your room searching for the whales. The restaurant serves good food and again sea view. The owner runs the whale watching trips and it is very much recommended to book the tours at this hotel....

The best place I stayed in Madagascar. The bungalows are very nice, built using palm leaves and are very cozy with nice architecture.

You visit Nosy Boraha to watch the whales who visit between late June and early September to sort a series of family matters.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Island of Sainte Marie Madagascar or Nosy Boraha is traditionally known as “Island of the pirates” .It is separated from mainland Madagascar by a narrow channel and remains a small green paradise preserved from mass tourism. An oasis of tranquility surrounded by luxurious gardens, our hotel has views of the setting sun with 180° panorama.Well sheltered from the brisk South-eastily winds, Libertalia is easily recognisable by its rock, a place to observe whales , and go for a spot of snorkeling and a swim (rare in the south island)Welcoming and friendly , it has had a reputation of being excellent value for money and high quality service for over 10 years.Ideally located, near the town, it is a starting point for many excursions all around Sainte Marie and is population, adept of “mora mora”, like “gently, gently”In season the hotel organizes whale watching in collaboration with CETAMADA. Martine and Didier, the owners who have a passion for whales, are two founding members of this association. ... more   less
