The beach at the hotel was amazing and looked exactly like in the pictures online. The gym was slightly old and did not have all the latest equipment but was still great for a...

Superficially this is an amazing hotel and a true paradise. Unfortunately once you have stayed there a few days you begin to realise that something has gone wrong a little in paradise. It is not helped from a British point of view by being very, very Italian and designed for that type of "sand but no sea" holiday that Italians...

Location is perfect ( although it is a bit far from the city center ) and the beach in front of the cottage was really nice. However the restaurant was poor .

I really admired the thought that had gone into making the most of this location using local sustainable materials and employing Malagasy people. The whole setting was an excellent balance of utilizing the natural beauty of the coastline while ensuring that the business of tourism did not intrude or dominate the locale. A very clever, comfortable and sensitively executed concept....
