I cant rave enough about this place from the food the staff and the breathtaking views. If at all possible take one of the quads down and explore the coves near the north end of the beach. Maurizio the owner is one of the most charismatic people i have met in madagascar and his auththentic italian cooking a woodfire pizza warms the soul. This place is an absolute must see when on the isle st marie!

We had a wonderful time at the Riake resort,the staff were so welcoming and friendly and we were always greeted with warm smiles.
A lovely, peaceful, island resort, with friendly and attentive staff. Beautiful setting, the bungalows well camouflaged by vegetation, and the villa accommodation was superb, spacious, well appointed and clean. You could watch the sun rise from the luxury of your veranda (or large bed!).Food is great and value for money is good. the Staff literally treat you as family ..... take a walk on the white beech .... I could say more and maybe I was simply happy to be on holiday in such a paradise, but nevertheless everybody played an amazing role, thank you guys, I hope to be back soon.

We have just returned from a 4 day stay at Riake Resort. It's a lovely resort with beautiful maintained gardens and an amazing sandy beach.
There are plenty of activities! The resort is just beautiful and perfect for families. All the staff makes you feel at home, very comfortable. Pampered might be more accurate. There's always someone to help you with a smile. We will go back!

There is a real paradise I've been there and saw it with my own eyes! A little rough ride the last few kilometers but all of a sudden "Paradise" l know the rating numbers only go up to five, but this is substantially more! We have made new friends for life. The staff seems unlike any we've met before. The owner and my new friend forever is named Maurizio, never been treated like we were royalty like this before. The beach and bungalows are top notch and our chef's fabulous. I cannot end this review without saying something special to our friend's we miss your warm smiles that will last a lifetime for us. So Michie, Tsiki and of course Sonia we will see you again. My friend Maurizio the answer to your question, l will come back!

Riake Resort and Villa was my home for one week while I made history by finding five pieces of Malaysia Airlines flight 370 debris on Riake beach. The accommodations, view, service, and meals, are excellent and the hospitality is the greatest in the world. Stay here !!!
