Client Rating for Madagascar 5/5 from 9 reviews

Beautiful lodge. The bungalows were well positioned so they were private, had a sea view, but could not be seen from the sea. Lovely use of local wood; we loved the carvings dotted around the place. The food was excellent, and the service amazing. We were surprised for our final dinner that I was given stuffed tomato for a starter, but Simon had oysters; I don’t like oysters, but could not remember telling them that. When we enquired, it seemed they had asked so subtly, we had not noticed! The lobster on the last night was delicious, and the chef did amazing things with local fish.
