The Allamanda, is a nice destination in front of the sea. Located only 1 mile from downtown Diego Suarez, facing the sea, the Allamanda has quality comfort in bright rooms and serves delicious cuisine. A good product.

    The only restaurant of the hotel, the''Merville'' also is renowned. It overlooks the beach and has a sundeck where it is very nice to have dinner by candlelight and feel the breeze. The continental breakfast is served a la carte. For lunch, you will be offered grilled foods, salads and fresh fruits which will delight your palate. For dinner, you will be offered a more sophisticated seasonal menu or a simple menu. The cuisine is simple but delicious, local or international, offering different specialities like bouillabaisse. The service is also available near the pool, located in the front of the restaurant and facing the beach.

    Beach 6.70 /10

    The sand is grey. The beach is cleaned every day. but there are still coconuts and tree branches that come in with the ocean tide. When you swim, be careful of the small rocks and corals in the water! A bridge makes the landscape perfect and gives you access to boats for those that want to take excursions or guests who arrive by boat.
