Set in the lagoon in Ifaty this French-owned beach lodge has a good position on the beach, and the layout of the main building and pool area is well done. It is comfortable rather than luxurious. Les Dunes d'Ifaty has 41 rooms and you can either have a sea view villa (with its own lounge and verandah), or a superior or standard room (which is still good but just has a bit less space).

All the rooms have a ceiling fan, TV and safe, and the bathrooms are well done too. The main building is a large, airy, open-plan thatched structure with a tree in the middle. This is where you find the dining room, the bar with attentive, smiling bar staff, and the lounge. However you will probably spend most of your time by the pool or the beach, or indeed both, as they are both very close.

Bear in mind that the sea goes out quite a reasonable distance here at low tide, so a good pool is important. There is also a snack bar on the beach. There are some local people from the village who come to try to sell you things on the beach, after all Mangily village is very close by, however they are not too pushy so this is rarely a problem.

If you want to do more than just relax, there are lots of possible activities you can do from here. These include cycling, horse riding, boat trips, diving, watersports and seasonal whale watching.

Client Rating for Madagascar 5/5 from 9 reviews

A great beach side hotel with all of the amenities you would expect. It was very quiet when we were there - at times only one other couple. The snorkelling is excellent.
