This hotel is a Bit old and tired. It seems to rely on it's view rather than anything else but only the most expensive rooms really take full advantage of the view. We had a huge suite, but no real view and most of the room was wasted. The decor was somewhat eccentric with no unifying theme.
Location wise it is around three kilometers out of town.
The food was only OK and expensive by Madagascan standards
No wifi, but 3G Internet works in Diego if you have a sim card.
If we were going to Diego again we would stay up in the mountains at Domaine de Fontenay. But then again our main interest is in the wildlife and vegetation rather than wanting to see Diego itself

Room Tip: Jump up and down until you get upgraded to a room with a real view

This is a great hotel with good location and food. It is also a good place to anchor yourself when discovering Diego and its surrounding. Everything works fine, the hotel is clean with great views and a nice pool.

This was definitely the biggest hotel room I have ever stayed in. Since tourism in Madagascar is a little slow at the moment, the owner was able to upgrade us to better rooms that opened up onto a huge living room with extra bathroom, shower and balcony.
The food and service were irreproachable.

Having stayed @ this hotel in mid- Feb. of this year, I feel compelled to relay that it is a great place to stay if you are heading up to the Antisarana area of Madagascar and Amber Mountain. We encountered the owner , Mr. Michel Desclaux, when we arrived @ the local airport, and he was very kind,put our minds to rest about our transfer and organized excursions, and was there @ the hotel,when we arrived -to greet us,and upgrade our accommodations, which were more than you could ever expect for the area and country.
Mind you-this hotel is not near the town, needs a bit of polish here and there,but the view of Diego Bay,and the restaurant food , as well as the staff make up for it.
