This is one of the best hotels I've stayed at in awhile. It was very easy to get a booking in low season, we just showed up. We mentioned the online rate and they obliged, the manager is very easy going. Normally is around 130 Euro a night but we paid 255 Euro for three nights. The view at Isalo...

Thank you very much for your very nice report. I think you have appreciated the longer stay than 2 nights, to enjoy the position and the service. That is why we offer a best rate for the nights over the usual 2. Many guests regret to have booked only two nights. And I thank you very much for having pointed...

Good place to stay in the south of Madagascar. It was a good stop on the way to Tulear, we spent just a couple of nights. The rooms are really big and the bathroom is wonderful. Furniture of design, good restaurant.

My wife and I stayed at the Isalo Rock Lodge for 4 nights in Feb 2017 - If you plan to travel between December and March, keep in mind this is low season in Madagascar, hotels are not busy and you get better rates. On the flip side, the weather is very hot during the day and storms hits hard...

You can go snorkeling at several places, you have the beach right in front of your beautiful and comfotable bungalow (with good wifi and airconditioner!). The food is delicious and you can order it every day in advance, whatever you fancy for.

The staff, setting, and furnishings are superb but turning off the generator at 2100 leaving guests to the merciless assault of the mosquitoes with no fan or air conditioning is wrong. Mosquitoes can easily enter ones room and get inside the mosquito net which is stifling with no air circulation.

I read about this lodge previous to my trip, and was lucky to find it open just before their annual winter close-down for two months. I was really looking forward to come here and had high expectations, but was not disappointed in any respect. First, the setting: it is completely magnificent and majestic. The colors of the sky and the...

This is one of the most extraordinary settings for a hotel. It is just beautiful. The rooms are completed to the highest standard and match the magnificent backdrop. The service was excellent, everyone was so friendly and helpful. Really one of the highlights of our trip.

If the beauty of the surroundings means a lot to you, don´t miss this hotel. But not only scenery is remarkable; the hotel itself could win a design award for style. And don´t miss the Isalo National park with its hiking trails and natural pools!
