We stayed three nights in one of the bungalows at Manja Hotel. The bungalows are nice, clean and you can enjoy the beautiful view of the mountains. The food is nice, and good-priced. Overall, it is a good option to stay when enjoying Ranamofana NP.

The accommodation is adequate and a bit damp but quite ok for a couple of nights. Access up a steep path is slippery after (frequent) rain. But the restaurant is good, views very fine and the village is within walking distance. Its a drive to the park, but transport would probably have been taken to get here in the first...

This was the least nice hotel during our trip in Madagascar. While it is nice that you have your own little house, the blankets looked a bit moldy and the bathroom was just plain old with a stained shower curtain and the knob to flush the toilet gone (an iron wire just to flush the toilet). But the views from...

We arrive at night it was pitch black and there was no power, we were given a candle which was nice. A nice man carried all our bags all the way to the top. The pillows were very very very uncomfortable but it did us just fine. It's in a great location, I recommend arriving at his hotel during the...

The rooms were very basic and nothing special and there were only 1 window in the room. The bathroom seemed a bit old and worn out and the rooms lacked some decoration. However the area is beautiful and most rooms seems to have a beautiful view of the gorge.

Rooms up steep hill although porters available to carry bags. Clean rooms with electricity and hot water. Stayed one night. Food was good with good choice although slightly more expensive than other places we have stayed. Best to order in advance run go shower and return for food. I had the shrimps and chips - huge portion and then banana...

Conveniently and centrally located , 10 minute drive from the park, the pictures don't do it justice, very prettily situated with a lovely view. As with most of the hotel's outside of Tana, it seems to make extra money by charging a tad more for food and drink, that said, the food was acceptable and the breakfast welcome. Friendly too...

We stayed two nights here while visiting ranomafana park. Room has a gorgeous view. Bed is comfortable. Mosquito net fits over the bed. Staff very helpful and nice. Steep climb to rooms which is a pain when you are completely exhausted. We are vegetarians so we had noodles or rice with veggies which was really good!!

came for lunch, sat outside on the veranda looking across the road to the river and the Ranomafana NP. Had local shrimps in a tomato and garlic sauce, white rice and French fries. Lovely flavours, although the shrimps were unshelled and messy to eat. Good English spoken, the place was full of tourists. Had to fight off about 6 women...

We ate here every night we stayed in Ranomafana - it was so nice the first night that we couldn't resist coming back. The staff were also an absolute delight - a very jolly crew that served us bananas when we went a bit overboard on the local hot sauce (BEWARE!!!) The food was really nice and we ate the...
