The rating for this hotel should really be a minus quantity but it seems that trip advisor doesn't allow for that. Indescribably bad, the type of room that a heroin addict, seeking a last fix before giving up on this world would use as his final resting spot. This was actually booked by the airline, Air Madagascar which is really the offender here -- after cancelling its flight to Ile St Marie and making us poor suckers, the passengers wait the entire afternoon in an airless, foodless waiting room only to cancel the flight and rebook it for the next morning, it put us up at an (allegedly) close hotel which turned out to be not that close and as noted a DUMP beyond words, although I must say the pix on the web make it look not bad. Do not be fooled!!!!! Another person (not me because I didn't have the guts to look) told me that she had pulled back the sheets and found countless bugs crawling around - I am just the messenger here. At first, being alone, I was give a I guess single room -- NO WINDOW, at least none looking out at the outside world and just horrible, yes, as you may guess painted blue, in deference to the name, a hideous, bright blue -- they changed me to another room equally hideous but with a window, no screen so couldn't leave it open and a balcony which you wouldn't want to use anyway but still a balcony. TV nailed up high almost ceiling height I suppose for fear of theft, bathroom -- why bother describing, bad bad bad, never used it, asked to leave, booked somewhere else along the way, the Orchide, not that great but infinitely better than flots bleu, but then anything would be. ADVICE -- forget about flots bleu but more importantly NEVER USE AIR MADAGASCAR, known as Air Peut-être. By the way, on the way back AIR MAD sent an email (which I miraculously received given that the internet was terrible) the nite before departure, saying it would be EARLY the next day so get to the airport before 7 AM - excuse me? I was an hour and a half away from the airport, had to leave at 4:30 AM. AIR MAD- NEVER AGAIN.
