We had a quick stop at Tana before going back to Arusha. The staff in Carlton are very helpful and friendly. The manager tried his best to give us a pleasant and warm welcome for our 2nd stay at Carlton during this holiday.
Welcome gift of sweets was a nice gesture especially coming back at night.
The room was extremely tidy and properly prepared for our arrival, except that we had a noisy neighbour and traffic noise was slightly annoying.
Overall it was a pleasant stay at Carlton.

Wonderful place. The management team of Ana and Maurice are wonderful. All the staff was devoted to making sure we had a great time. Special thanks to Neomi, Pearline and Noufound. The bikes need improvement. The kayaks were awesome. The hillside viewing location is a great addition.

It is probably the best hotel in Ile Sainte Marie. Well furnished rooms, excellent staff. A bit on the expensive side, but it absolutely worth money. We had HB option where the dinner consists of 3 meals + dessert, it's all very tasty, so not easy to not to have it all.
The only thing you need to know is that there's almost no beach there. Yes, you can swim in the ocean, but there are a lot of arches and you have to bring some footwear to be safe.
Otherwise, it's a truly excellent property and is highly recommended!

"Amazing villa and location, shame about the staff"
Having travelled around Madagascar and had the most friendly welcome with reasonable customer service even in basic accommodation, I was slightly surprised by the 'can't be bothered' attitude of staff here. We had a welcome drink at check in but then were traipsed around the premises by someone who made no effort to talk to us, only to end where we started having carried our huge bags around with us. Perhaps rethink the order of this... Air Madagascar was on strike so we were struggling to get off the island but getting information from reception was like blood from a stone. They were also no help in helping us find a hotel in Tana as we had to leave a day early when our friends were in a much cheaper hotel down the road and the staff called around and found them somewhere. We asked if there was any chance of a refund as it was beyond our control. The answer was 'no' and a look like they'd just scraped something off the sole of their shoe.. the answer we expected but delivered in a shocking way!!
The one time we wanted to use the pool they were using it for a diving lesson (3 groups in a small pool).
