Dear Madam, This is a long, difficult explanation to read and understand. It's unfortunate that you have not made any criticism on the spot, especially as the quality of services is praised by our Internet users in terms of length on Tripadvisor... Our readers will judge for themselves. It must still reframe with "a short answer". You came in the rainy season with a wet landing zone, we are not responsible for it. You are referring to a 4 star; we are not in this category and besides you did not pay a service 4 stars. You booked at the last moment in high season; it's your choice. So you had the last bungalow available. Sorry, we are complete. You attended the sold-out private concert, Unique au Grand Bleu, of Nully Ratomosoa's group, a legend of bass in Madagascar. You have certainly found that the clientele is cosmopolitan, from all over the world, and that understanding is good for everyone. The booklet available in several languages ​​in each bungalow specifies that you can ask for soap. Yes, towels are included; yes, we also lend beach towels; yes, the sheets are clean and cleaned before arrival. We are very surprised at your comments about the addition; it is you who insisted on paying the entire bill.
