Although opened in October 2007 and not yet completely finished, the Ampasikely is a simple hotel located right on the seafront and with an attractive swimming pool. There is no timetable, no fuss here - you are on holiday and you do as you please! A little too much sometimes.

    Location 6.75 /10

    The hotel faces the sea, on the west coast of the island of Nosy Be, just after Dzamandzar.

    Accommodation 6.20 /10

    6 identical wooden bungalows contain a double bed equipped with a mosquito net and two bunk beds, and the decor continues the wooden theme. They are charming, simple and pleasant, although a little on the dark side. There is a small terrace offering little privacy at the front of each of the bungalows, with two armchairs and a small table for keeping an eye on the comings and goings at the hotel. These bungalows accommodate up to 4 people and have a bathroom with a large shower and a separate toilet. On warmer nights, a fan circulates the air, but is very pleasant.

    Overview 6.45 /10

    The hotel is accessible by a dirt track and consists of a main building which opens out on to the sea where the restaurant tables, the bar which serves as a reception and the attractive swimming pool surrounded by a wooded terrace are located. The entire complex is done out in a local wooden style and topped off with a palm leaf roof. Arranged rums are served at the bar that is open all day......beware! The bungalows are all located just a stone's throw from this building in a small garden with coral-covered paths.

    Food and drink 5.70 /10

    Breakfast is included in the price of the room. Coffee, hot chocolate or tea and bread and preserves, as well as a selection of fruit, are on the menu. Nothing special! In the evening, and, if required, at lunchtime, a buffet menu is available, including, depending on the hotel's current clientele, grilled fish and meat, raw vegetables and fresh fruit (ideal for those trying to eat a balanced diet!. Provided that you don't stop off at the bar hut before or after!). A little word of advice - do not be in too much of a hurry, and give yourself at least an hour before you want to sit down at the table as service can be very slow.

    Beach 6.45 /10

    A large wild beach is located at the foot of the hotel. By wild we mean unmaintained. A river flows into the sea here and furrows into the beach, which was very damaged by the last cyclone. As is the case all along this coast, the low tide pushes the sea right away, but when the tide is high it reaches as far as the swimming pool.

    To know

    The owner has a rental schooner and if there are around 15 of you who wish to take a trip he can organise a cruise to the small neighbouring islands.
    The hotel has already accommodated several school parties, works committees and divers since its opening! Could this become its speciality? ? families in bungalows accommodating 4 people are very present during the school holidays. Outside of holiday periods, it is best to avoid these unclean surroundings.
    Many excursions are offered with partners: mountain-biking, quad-biking, etc, though the owner manages everything single-handedly so these things can take time? this is normal!
    Many projects are underway, such as a family bungalow with air-conditioning, etc.

      Nature, sport, comfort and calm are the watchwords of this little hotel, which consists of bungalows in the middle of a luxuriant garden in front of an unspoilt beach. Nothing bothers you here (there are no children under 15), and you can do what you like when you like. Quad-biking and diving are the main activities on offer, but you will be happy whatever you like, provided you come with a convivial and relaxed attitude.

      If diving is your passion and you couldn't imagine spending a single day of your holiday without getting your head under the water, this is the place for you. Ideally located on a heavenly beach, these small bungalows offer varying levels of comfort at varying prices. Prices can be twice as much depending on whether you have cold water or hot water. It's a shame they don't offer a mid-priced room with warm water!

      This pretty little hotel, with its chic-ethnic atmosphere located by the waterside, houses 6 rooms and serves delicious cuisine. You will enjoy the feeling of privacy, the decoration, which is modern but not too over the top, the chic but relaxed atmosphere and the lush garden (although you could give the animals a miss). A small piece of paradise for couples!
